Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing stay. This villa is so incredible and Simona and Angelito made our stay even more amazing. We were treated like royalties throughout our stay! A truly Tuscan-dream vacation. We can’t wait to come back.

From the moment we were out of the taxi we were in love with the villa, its view and the warmth of a loving home. We are so grateful to have met the staff and to call them “friends” for life. You have made this a trip of a lifetime.

My extended family had a memorable time at Villa Palazzo. The atmosphere, views, food provided by Simona the cook, and Angelito, made it a very special vacation. Thank you!
What to do in Chianti
Famous for its art and architecture, Florence is an obligatory destination for the first-timer visitor of Italy. However, while exploring the historical center is something that cannot be missed, the pristine studded landscapes and the enchanted medieval villages set on the famous Tuscan rolling hills surrounding Florence are well worth a visit. The most famous area to explore is the Chianti, a blessed land that covers a rather large wine-producing region of Tuscany, reaching from Florence to Siena, and all the way out to Pisa. Chianti's must see sights are the wine villages of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. Along the road visit the Badia di Coltibuono and/or Castello di Brolio and do not forget to pick up some wine to enjoy at the villa!
