“Surreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

You've looked at pictures of Italy. You've seen rolling hills with cypress trees and vineyards spotted on every nook and cranny. You've thought they were fake. But, alas, they are not. Il Paluffo sits exactly in that spot. Not only are the grounds just stunning, but the owners, the rooms, the area are just surreal.

I would be there tomorrow, if I could.

  • Liked — The grounds
  • Disliked — nothing!
  • Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

If you remember the landscapes of Leonardo da Vinci paintings you will find them around us: smooth hills, cypressus, small woods, some clouds and vineyards....

We stayed at the Forno appartment during the end of September with our baby boy and had a really good time.
While the website pictures doesn't really show it, rest assure - the view from the garden and poolside is superb. You can absolutely lurk in the sun and enjoy a good panoramic view of the hills in the area, drenched in olive plants and vines.
The facilities are rather new, nicely designed and well maintained. The kitchen is equiped with the basic things you would need for cooking your own meals and there's free wifi.

We highly recommend this place for a relaxing vacation!
