Al Palazz – a picturesque stone villa …
… nestling in the hills 1km above Bagnone.
Al Palazz sits at the heart of a tiny hamlet (bells ring only twice a day).
It has a luxurious solar-heated private pool with changing rooms, showers, & WC ..
... set in an acre of spectacular private south-facing landscaped gardens with many sitting areas.
Geraniums line the villa’s entrances; the garden gate is just around the corner.
The kitchen is traditional Tuscan style and fully equipped for cooking.
The dining room and snug provide a cool retreat on hot days …
… and there’s always time for a drink on the kitchen terrace.
Large windows in the big beamed sitting room offer spectacular views.
The master bedroom with wall hangings also looks over the valley.
All bathrooms have 4-piece suites and the master bathroom has a whirlpool bath.
Beds are king-size and comfortable - the second bedroom looks over the square.
In the ground floor cantina apartment contemporary design complements 14C walls.
Relax with a drink in the gardens and enjoy the fabulous view.
Take the rose arch path to arrive at the pool, which sits in the sun all day.
The pool (11 x 4m) is solar-heated with a cover, and can be lit at night.
There’s also a path down to the pool area from our private car park.
Poolside dining is easy, with a well-equipped, lit kitchen bar, fridge and BBQ …
… it’s easy to spend whole days and evenings on the terrace by the pool.
There are lots of enchanting small towns to explore and many good place to eat.
Florence, Pisa, Parma and Genoa are easy day visits with many sights to see …
… and the Italian Riviera and Cinque Terre villages are just 45 minutes away.
Or just stay here and relax until the sun goes down and the stars come out!

We had a wonderful week at this beautiful house in August. The pool area is absolutely amazing and would not be out of place in a small boutique hotel, with shower, changing area, toilet facilities, outdoor kitchen, table tennis and BBQ facilities. Just across the road is a small restaurant which was full every lunch time and evening and at... more

Management response:

Agreed - there's nothing to beat relaxing by the pool, taking in the view, or swimming by starlight! And dining at Al Vecchio Podere is a real Italian experience that we enjoy on every visit. more

Al Palazz ticked all the boxes on paper for us and we were not disappointed with the real thing when we arrived!

The roads leading upto the small village were in good condition so...

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.
