“Type As - please stay away and leave the rest of us to enjoy this heavenly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

My husband and I spent 3 nights here on a 3 week trip. the Palazzina was our favorite place we stayed. It is NOT for those who want constant action - it is close (30 minutes - close by Tuscany standards) to Montepulciano and Montalcino, Siena is only an hour away, but the beauty of the Palazzina is the relaxation of not being near the tourist madness. We spent one whole day of our stay just relaxing on the property. The meals are an excellent value - beautiful fresh food, reasonably priced, fabulous house wine and good wine cellar if you want to upgrade, and no driving after your meal. Italy is really cracking down on drinking and driving, and with the curvy nature of the area roads, you would be somewhat crazy to drink and drive here. Why bother? Eat at the hotel in the evenings, relax with your fellow "residents" and walk upstairs to bed. Kittens, a dog, sheep down the road, resident burro, awesome staff and owners - who could ask for more? If you have to be stimulated every minute, please go somewhere else and leave this paradise for the rest of us

Just been here for afew days for a friends wedding and instantly fell in love with the place ( it's hard not too !! ) Silvano and his staff were amazing from start to finish,the food was awesome ,the location is out of this world-nothing but rolling hills wherever you look. If you want to ' get away from it all ' this is the perfect place.Closest town is about 25 mins away but why would you wanna leave this place anyway ?? Heaven on earth.. . .

La Palazzina is located on a mountain road near Radicofani. It is a very nice old house with a swimming pool. The staff was very friendly and the athmospere is very relaxing. The food is really good. We had a room with a great view on the mountains, the bed was a bit soft, but ok.

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The things we most noticed were a) the location which is wonderful: the guesthouse is situated in the middle of gorgeous Tuscan countryside, b) the great food (we ate there both nights) and c) the great welcome from Silvano and his team. If you want anonymity in a hotel this is NOT the place for you. Silvano goes out of his way to welcome each guest and make them feel at home. He speaks great English and has an infectious humour. We loved it here.

Came here with 3 friends in mid-May 2009, and stayed for a week at Fattoria La Palazzina's farmhouse apartment just down the road from the main house. Accommodations were beautiful, very comfortable and well-supplied. Private pool. Very short drive to the delightful nearby hill town for provisions. A quintessential experience of the Tuscan hill country. Wanted to sink in roots and never leave.

Managers Silvano Mamprin and his wife Eliana Pasquini are deeply and genuinely warm and welcoming, as is their entire team. Couldn't do enough for us. They gave us space to just be, and were equally happy to give us information on anything about the area. Eliana and another Palazzina chef, Rocco, gave me a memorable lesson on making hand-made pasta that made me feel part of the whole life there.

Rolling mountains, olive groves - the fattoria's own olive oil is delicious - make this a fabulous destination to relax, recharge, and explore Tuscany and nearby western Umbria.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during Easter time. It was highly recommended by a friend and we could see why. It is a big charming and historical B&B where the owners are always there and the husband, Silvano, is gracious and always ready to talk to his guests and help them with anything they need. He speaks English as fluently as his Italian.

What makes it very special is the beautiful dinner prepared every night of four courses and the celebrated red wine of the region in a wonderful spacious dining room. They are very accomodating to any changes you might need in the menu, for example as my wife was pregnant and there were certain things she could not eat. We met an international couple with a baby from Rome and they have returned to this spot numerous times because they can always dine in comfort with a baby monitor on the table while their son sleeps peacefully upstairs. This says a lot. The included breakfast is also lovely. Silvano also gives you homemade oiive oil when you leave- that he makes from olive trees on the premises! Also, the swimming pool looks amazing and is set in the most incredible scenic backdrop.

The little things we would mention are to keep in mind this is a European accommodation which means that for us the shower was very small. Also the lighting in the rooms is not very warm and evenly distributed, but this is something we found every place we stayed in Tuscany. It is probably due to the age of the buildings and inability to wire them a certain way. La Palazzina is also about 10 minutes from Radicofani and in Southernmost Tuscany, so you will have a drive to any place you want to visit. But it is worth the beauty of the spot and the graciousness of the hosts. Our friend Andrea told us for special occasions, ask for the room with the balcony!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Palazzina is a hunting villa built in the second half of the XVIIIth century, set on a hill at an altitude of 580 meters above sea level, maintaining its original status of private residence, open to friends and available for rentals. The villa is surrounded by a rich evergreen park with holm-oak and cypress trees and by an olive grove with over 1700 trees, which are sufficient to cover the estate's demand for fresh olive oil. A circular garden adorns the entrance, once utilized as a bird trap for hunting purposes. The villa holds the original traits of a country house used for celebrations of spring harvest festivals. Three large rooms, with fireplaces, as well as a double room with private bathroom, are found on the ground floor leading to a semi-circular outdoor solarium paved with terracotta tiles. Those large rooms are used primarily as a dining room, bar, library and piano room. A fully equipped kitchen and storeroom is located in the service wing. The 6meters x 12 meters swimming pool offers a breathtaking view of the rolling hills of Tuscany. A 3 double bedroom apartment with bathroom is on the same side as the swimming pool. The first floor has 8 double rooms, 3 with twin size beds and 5 with king size beds, all with private bathrooms and shower. There are 4 rooms facing the front side, overlooking the garden and facing west and the remaining 4 face the valley of Radicofani to the east. The annex building has two double rooms, each with private bathroom and is located within the garden, 10mt south from the main building. The whole villa is furnished with masterpieces from the 1800's and early 1900's. The Main entrance of the building can be reached by car and guests can park their vehicle next to the large plum tree field. ... more   less
