You won't find a more authentic experience in the Tuscany countryside. Everything exceeded our best hopes. The owner was so easy to work with and answered other questions about the area. It is close enough to do easy day trips. The views are breathtaking. Be sure to have dinner at the neighbor's farmhouse restaurant.

We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Al Palazz. A week did not seem enough - we did not want to leave! The house, pool and gardens are incredible. The website photos are great, but seeing is believing - the views and surrounding countryside are amazing. more

It was heated by solar panels and the eating stage above was wonderful. It had a kitchen with fridge, huge BBQ, real good quality furniture and, best of all, that wonderful view. Because... more
