Our overall experience at Il Paluffo was wonderful. The staff was kind, helpful, and friendly. The grounds and main property itself are beautiful - clean, well kept with nicely appointed common areas. We very much enjoyed our two cooking classes with Monica - they were fun,

No photos can give justice to the beauty of the interior, exterior and views of Il Paluffo. The wonderfully restored manor with hundreds of years of histity combined with modern comfort. Simple, but tasteful breakfast of high quality. The garden with the natural pool and view of

Nice accommodation nearby Florence airport. Clean rooms and high standard on bathrooms. Beautiful garden and surroundings. No lift and many stairs, therefore not recommended for disabled. Vine tasting, but only by non transparent payment, which is pity for such a lovely place!

thanks for your review and we are glad you appreciated our structure. We are an historical building and we are not allowed to build a lift as access to the rooms of the B&B where you stayed. Anyway, we have an apartment with a double room and bathroom suitable for people with disabilities, but we always recommend to contact us in advance to check if the accommodation could be right for specific needs. About non transparent payment, we always make a bill for each payment. We have two different companies one for the accommodation and another for the farmhouse's products, so we make two different receipts. You took the receipt of the accommodation but not the receipt of the wine tasting because you were in great hurry to leave. The receipt is still on the reception desk where you left it, we regret you forgot it but please let us know if you want that we can send it by email. Thanks for staying with us for your friend's special party and please say hello to Norway from our part.

We stayed one week, Irene at the welcome desk was great, the location is a good starting point for all excursions. The apartment nice but a bit humid, overall great experience since you feel like at home. Reasonable prices and you feel part of the Toscana...to be repeated

Here's an example of what needs to be added to the doors of the Houses for proper security.

Have the security issues been addressed?
Dear Kara the security problems we had were due to the fact that the guests left the outside door of the apartments open, in fact in the B & B where the door is closed automatically we never had problems. However, all apartments have keys that cannot be duplicated (there is a secret code to use) and the copy that is not delivered to the customer is stored in the safe. The doors and windows are unbreakable and the windows at the ground floor are equipped with railings. Also to ensure guests more security we installed a video camera system all around the villa.

We stayed in one of the self catering houses so we could have lunch and seat in the lovely courtyard. They do have a drinks fridge but not sure if they would prepare lunch or allow you to use the kitchen. Not sure if you can eat by pool. You would need to ask them.

The Yellow Room is a mini suite with a private living room, both the rooms have a panoramic view on the Chianti hills and besides the bedroom, that has 2 large windows, has the view also on the main entrance and garden of the villa. Regards Luca
