General


This marvellous old farmhouse is the ideal solution if you are looking for the classic Tuscan countryside experience, set on a hill top and surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards. To complete the authentic picture, the estate still produces its own wine and olive oil, and the house retains many original features.

It’s pretty unlikely that any of the original estate workers would recognise much about the farmhouse today however, as the present owners have converted it with exceptional taste and flair. The main rooms are generously sized, and with two separate living rooms and a dining room, you can all spread out and enjoy the space, or get together on the terrace to discuss the day’s discoveries and absorb the serene splendour of this historic spot. The private pool is a lovely sun trap, surrounded by a broad terrace with a shady section to one side. For long lazy lunches the villa has a beautiful terrace that leads conveniently off the kitchen and runs the entire length of the rear of the house.

The villa is set on a wooded hillside within an acre of private grounds and surrounded by beautiful walking country. The estate produces fine red wines, and you can visit the cantina to discover more about the production process and try the wines for yourself. This is a quieter area of Tuscany, well off the main tourist route, with many small towns nearby where you can eat and shop in traditional restaurants and markets. Tuscany’s most celebrated cities are also within easy reach.

Location


This historic private estate once belonged to a noble Tuscan family associated with the Medici, and has been an important part of the local heritage for centuries. Today the estate produces three grades of high quality red wine and guests are encouraged to visit the cantina and learn more about wine production and sample the wines produced there. Guests at Villa Palaia are welcome to walk the estate roads and enjoy the countryside and the lovely views.
