When you open the shutters in the morning the sun steams in and the view of rolling hills and tuscany landscape takes your breath away.
An old house beautifully restored, the attention to detail was amazing and the couple who run it are ultimately helpful, they even reserved us a table at a local restaurant one friday night - when the whole place was booked out!

While the street below can be a bit noisy, it doesn't diminish the pure uniqueness of the place!

Stayed August 2006

We cannot speak highly enough of Antica Dimora Leones, the people who work there, and the fantastic surroundings. We spent three nights here, in the Medieval hill town of Palaia, and save for a few unwanted mosquito bites, everything was perfect. From the moment we arrived, to be welcomed with wine and pastries in the beautiful garden by the lovely Cecilia, to each night spent in the romantic hot tub, we couldn't have asked for more. Each room has unique antique furniture, courtesy of the last owners of the property - grandparents of the current owner. The bathroom was spotless, and each window provides stunning views over the Tuscan hillside. If you can, persuade your hostess to arrange a Tuscan meal one evening. This was one of the most delicious meals, and certainly the best value, we have ever eaten in Italy, although be warned, it was seven generous courses! Palaia itself is fairly quiet, but makes a great base for touring nearby cities, or if you just want to relax on the terrace with a good book then you may never have to leave the hotel. Very special indeed.

  • Liked — Lovely rooms, an incredible hotel, a great hot tub
  • Disliked — Mosquitos - (We went in September, and apparently this was a bad year for them)
  • Tips/Secrets — Make sure you get your hosts to organise an evening meal for you at the hotel!
