II Paluffo is a perfect place to enjoy Tuscany. The host was so friendly and helpful, especially Frederica. Our three bed room apartment was so spacious, clean, beautiful, and comfortable. We stayed for three nights; hopefully we could stay longer next time. Many thanks and best wishes to Frederica. Minh , Kim and others

As previous reviews indicate it was a perfect stay. We had an adult party of three couples and there was room aplenty. Beware the Sat Nav as we had problems finding the place but if in doubt call and they can guide you in as for us. Federica recommended a fantastic restaurant di Casa Chianti about 5 mins drive away....

Rustic, friendly, inviting italian villa (bed and breakfast as well as apts), fantastic service. We enjoyed very much our stay. The location is beautiful, being surrounded by vineyards and olive trees as well as decorative arbovitaes. The lobby and apartments are heavily decorated with stone which creates a very relaxing and casual atmosphere. Thank you very much Liana and Federica...

Just outside Fiano and down the dirt road in the midst of wine and olive fields is where you might be so lucky to find Il Paluffo and your most memorable accommodation in Tuscany. The buildings are well preserved and charming, and the entire place so full of history, which will be generously shared with you when welcomed. The double...

We spent three nights at Il Paluffo and wished we had planned to stay longer. The property is absolutely beautiful. The building is unique with its history and charm. The rooms are even better than the pictures show. Federica was an amazing hostess and the lady who looks after the breakfast was fantastic. The views from the terrace are breathtaking.

We stayed in the Liberty Room at Il Paluffo for one night in Sep 2014 for a wedding nearby and loved every minute of it. The staff is welcoming and professional, and the accommodations are clean, beautiful, and well cared for. It reminded us of a cozy hunting lodge. The hotel offers maps with two different hikes around the area,...

Lovely one night visit at Il Pallufo. Serene, calm, beautiful scenery. Wonderful service at check in and breakfast. This is our second time staying. We will be back if the fates allow. We did have some issues with the humidity and heat - then with the open windows some bug bite issues. Regardless we love this place.

We decided to stop at Il Paluffo for three nights, Sep. '14. Great experience, the resort is in the heart of Chianti valley, within an extremely quiet surrounding. The right place to be if you are looking for an exclusive time of relax, chill out and cultural / historical discovery of Tuscany. We lodged in the Yellow Room as well...
