Services & Amenities

At Paluffo, we’re masters of the art of Italian hospitality

Our team is available to help you throughout your stay to ensure you have an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany.

Our hospitality manager, Federica, will be your focal point for any information and can help you arrange a cooking class or wine & olive oil tasting guided by Liana Stiavelli, our owner and a professional sommelier.
Each morning, a traditional Tuscan breakfast is served inside our historic wine cellar or outside in our courtyard. All of the products we use are organic, locally sourced and seasonal.

Paluffo’s natural swimming pool is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of adventures in the Italian countryside. Take a dip among the water lilies and other aquatic plants while enjoying views of the surrounding landscape for an unforgettable experience. From the water’s edge you can admire the nearby towns of San Gimignano, Certaldo and the hills of Siena while you bask in the Tuscan sunshine.

Our bed and breakfast and apartments have vegan bath and product products, as well as iPads with restaurant recommendations and ideas for local experiences you can enjoy at Paluffo and around Tuscany.

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!
