From 1910 to 2004, the Fossi family – descendants of the Paluffi – used the villa as their summer vacation home.
In 2005, Liana Stiavelli, the daughter of Mr. Fossi, decided to restore the villa and begin a new chapter at Paluffo along with her husband, Luca Del Bo.
The task of refurbishing the property wasn’t easy: the villa had no electrical heating or sanitary systems, while the surrounding cottages had been abandoned or used as warehouses.
Liana and Luca vowed to renovate their home according to their personal life philosophy, combining a mix of green building and traditional techniques with innovative technologies.
The cottages were restored with minimum interference, following the principles of eco-sustainability:
The rooms are stylish, cozy and comfortable, with a mix of original furnishings that belonged to the villa and contemporary design elements.
Restoration work was also carried out in the estate’s olive grove and vineyard. Today, Paluffo makes it own organic extra virgin olive oil, honey and wine.
Electricity is produced by a local photovoltaic power station, which covers 60% of our annual consumption, and the rest is covered by renewable sources.
