Our Family

For us, Paluffo is a dream come true.

A historic property that dates back to the 15th century, Paluffo has always been a family home.

Liana Stiavelli, a descendent of the Paluffi family, spent summers at the villa as a child and wanted to convert the property into a boutique hotel so she could share the magic of the Tuscan countryside with her friends and guests. Today she owns and manages Paluffo together with her husband and partner, Luca del Bo.

“After years living the city life in Florence and Milan, our love for the land and Italy’s historic traditions brought us back to our roots”.

We wanted to restore our estate to its original splendor and honor the historical legacy of our land while integrating it seamlessly into the natural environment.

Today, Paluffo is a luxurious Tuscan villa that invites guests to embrace the slow, country lifestyle. Nothing makes us happier than hearing our guests tell us “this feels like home”.

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!
