The Natural Swimming Pool

Soak in the Tuscan countryside

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.

Here, your senses will come alive with the scent of blooming flowers and the sounds of wildlife: listen for humming bees, chirping birds, croaking frogs and the song of crickets.

Our swimming pool is an ecological lake with a designated bathing area that is surrounded by aquatic plants and flowers that naturally purify the water. No harmful chemicals are used, like chlorine, so your skin will stay silky smooth and our gardens stay healthy.

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!
