Kind Words From Our Guests
Magic Corner of Tuscany: We only had a short two days in Tuscany, but they were magical at Il Paluffo. This is a beautiful location - the rooms are comfortable and elegant, the food was amazing, and our hosts were beyond accommodating. October is a beautiful month to travel in Italy - carve out some time and spend it at Il Paluffo!

We had a wonderful time staying at Il Paluffo. We stayed for 3 nights in the forno apartment. The staff were excellent; there was great communication prior and during our arrival. The accommodation is beautiful and well maintained. We also enjoyed the cooking class and the shiatsu massage that was arranged for us. Just sad we couldn't stay longer.

This was the most beautiful place we’ve ever been to. I felt like we were in a Tuscan castle with the most beautiful views I have ever seen. We rented a villa for our family of four which was three floors of rustic beauty. Below is a photo of the view from our window. We purposely kept the window open at night so we could hear the rooster’s wake up call in the morning! If you go, be sure to sign up for the cooking class! We made pasta as well as many other traditional dishes. Delicious and also a fun activity! We hated to leave!
