“It's a pitty of such a stunning location.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

In beginning august we visited Il Palagetto. The first impression was what a stunning location as we drove up the road. It was a very hot day, and we couldn't wait to jump in the pool. Unfortunately the pool is covered with a lot of insects. At night we ate at Il palagetto, the food was good but we choose th eat the rest of the days in Volterra, whats a 25 minute drive by car. The room had mould in the bathroom and bedroom. The towels were stained and not often changed just as the bedding. They didn't deal with complaints but tried to give us the feeling that we were the only ones who had a problem with a lack of water. I talked with other guest and they weren't impressed of the service. Again, i think it's a pitty of such a lovely place. If the rooms were up to standaard and around the building somebody would clean up, make sure the pool is clean and give the guest the feeling they're special, it would be a wonderfull place.

We stayed for four nights and it was truly the most magical place. The rooms were spacious, clean, cool (air con) and pleasantly decorated with spectacular views from both the bedroom and bathroom. Anna, the chambermaid, was immediately available to make sure we had everything we needed and was incredibly helpful during our whole stay. It is a bit out of the way but the directions given by the hotel with our booking confirmation were clear and easy to follow and really, really worth it. The night skies were out of fairy tales and the whole feeling of the place is warm and geniune.

My husband had the best T-bone steak he's ever had in his life and hasn't stopped telling people about it! Again, the restaurant staff bent over backwards to make sure we enjoyed our meals.

The large pool, down a hill away from the buildings, was crystal clear and clean with views to die for.

Giulia should be very proud of her agriturismo and her staff.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very sad to leave! Our room was very spacious, gorgeous view from the balcony. The owners Leo & Julie where so helpful and made sure we had a comfortable stay- gave us great recommendations for wineries & things to do in the region. The food at there restaurant was some of the best we've had while travelling through Italy - wild boar pasta (amazing!!) would definitely stay here again!!

After spending a couple of busy days on Liguria coast and Tuscany hot spots we looked for a calm down and ended up in the Agrihotel Ill Palagetto in the middle of Tuscany. What a pleasant surprise it was, we found very friendly staff, good food, fabulous views from the hotel main terrace and fabulous swiming pool. A very good base for discovering nerby towns.

Not much to say other than fantastic. I would have liked to find this spot before so I could have had my wedding there. At sunset it is simply breathtaking. The owner is fantastic and food was amazing. Just try it. Don't know why some reviews are so bad I cannot figure this out. I travel a lot, and BAD places are others not this!!! Thanks Giulia for your hospitality.

We stayed here for 9 days and we were sad we had to leave! When you drive up the lane to the hotel, you already think 'What a view'. Once arrived in the hotel, the view is amazing, you have a 360° view on the Tuscany hills and on Volterra! The staff, managed by Julia, is very friendly, helpfull and very social. The rooms are standard but nice and clean and important air-conditioned. The pool is fantastic, it's large and from the pool you have an amazing view on Volterra. The breakfast is standard but good. Still I believe this is the part that can be optimized. The dinner at night can be taken inside or outside on demand. The menu has 4 dishes with local ingredients and is most of the time very good.
If you want to visit Tuscany, it's the place to be if you want to relax and visit the surroundings!
