We spent six nights at Il Paggino from October 9-15 in the Gelsomino Apartment. We were very pleased with our accomodation- two beautiful bedrooms, two bathrooms, large living room, kitchen and dining room. We found the kitchen well equipped and were especially happy to have an American coffee maker. Because the weather that week was cool and cloudy many of the days, we were not able to fully enjoy the picturesque grounds but I would love to visit again when the weather was warmer to enjoy the many patio areas to take in the wonderful views. We appreciated having WiFi enabling us to keep in touch with family at home. We did miss having a TV or stereo system in the apartment.
Il Paggino is about 2 km from Radda, which is a lovely Tuscan town with many interesting shops, restaurants, as well as a well stocked grocery store (COOP). We had rented a car in Pisa and had a pleasant drive to Radda via Greve in Chianti. We made easy day trips from Il Paggino to Florence, (driving in to Piazza Michelangelo and parking there for the day), Siena, San Gimignano, Montalcino, and Pienza.
After reading some criticisms of the owners, I think it should be mentioned that they have just had a new baby and the normal routine has most certainly be disrupted. We found Francesco to be a very obliging host and did not mind that he was absent some of the time we were there.
We would highly recommend Il Paggino.
