We were most impressed by the staff (Serena! on reception - fabulous).. they made great effort to make our stay perfect.
The hotel is absolutely charming...lovely garden... beautiful terraces/pool, with the feel of old world with modern amenities. The restaurant was wonderful.

Truly unique experience in a spectacular part of Tuscany. Great staff - very helpful - especially front desk. Breakfast in the old Tuscan kitchen was excellent. Enjoyed the pool - somewhat unique design. Unfortunately the spa area was closed. Lots of care has been put into the restoration and decoration of the hotel. Some shops and a few restaurants around the hotel adds to the convenience. Restaurant associated with the hotel was excellent. Local shop owners around the hotel also very hospitable. Did quick day trips to San Gimignano and Siena from here.
Came for leisure and as a first visit in Toscana, looking for relaxation. The team gave very good advice about the sightseeing around. The building has history and the owners do enjoy their place and want to make you share their appreciation and succeed in making you feel at home. Definitely a place to return and recommend!
"Storybook setting, very hospitable, gay-friendly"
My boyfriend and I found Villa La Palagina accidentally and it became one of the highlights of our 16 days in Italy. We originally booked for one night but after checking-in and seeing the Villa and the quality of the restaurant and the hospitality of its staff we very quickly decided to stay a second night. We would have stayed much longer if we could!
Most of the guests were staying for several days or weeks which speaks to the quality that the General Manager Eric has cultivated. Eric plays a very active role and ensured that every aspect of our stay was enjoyable - from leading a grape picking day in the vineyard for us, to providing us with helpful touring tips, to even helping us with some car trouble we experienced.
The restaurant and it's manager have the best of local Tuscan cuisine and wines. The setting of the restaurant overlooking infinity pools and her Tuscan hills were worthy pinch-me moments at breakfast and at dinner.
The room we had was quite spacious and by far the largest we had anywhere in Italy. Because the Villa was a former convent it is full of charm - complemented by well kept landscaping.
Finally I have to say that the villa was quite gay friendly. Most of the staff and the other guests (mostly American) were warm and accepting and the whole place had a jovial resort feel.
We look forward to our next visit to La Palagina.
