“Absolutely A1 Experience-A Must Place to Stay while in Tuscany!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Jen and Francesco are wonderful hosts. My wife, my son and I stayed for two nights and wished we could have stayed a week. Not only did they help us with certain travel arrangements in the local area prior to coming to Italy, they booked a beautiful table at a fine restaurant at sunset nearby the residence. Taking it a step further they provided transportation both ways after a long day of personal travelling, etc. The pool, garden and adjacent grounds are beautiful and the accommodation is very nice, extremely clean with historical and personal touches too numerous to describe here. Not only are they very skilled in their profession, but fine people we are happy to call friends. When they do host their occasional BBQ's, their hospitality and kindness are just amplified. We will return in the future and have been telling our friends that this was the best place we stayed at in the 17 days we stayed in Italy, Switzerland and Germany.

What an amazing place to stay in Tuscany, so close to Florence. Forget staying in Florence; come and stay with Jen and Francesco at their amazing residence instead. They are amazing hosts who truly put the needs of their guests at the forefront. They are helpful (getting breakfast for you from the village, writing walking routes in Florence for you, having bus tickets at the office, driving you up to the local restaurant, the list goes on!) and so very friendly. A true Kiwi-Italian combination!
The accommodation is lovely, we stayed in their smallest room but it was still roomy and comfortable, with a separate full kitchen and lots of space to put things. The rooms were impeccably clean and had everything you would need. There's also a communal laundry.
We would recommend staying here at any time of the year and try to make it as long as possible as there is a lot to see around the area.
Thanks Jen and Francesco for making our stay with you a highlight of our trip, we are so glad we chose to stay the extra night!

This absolutely gorgeous place is a must to stay at for a visit to Italy and most definitely if you are visiting Florence. Jen (kiwi) and Francesco (Italian) are an absolutely delightful couple that make you feel so welcome and at home. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, including driving you up the road for a dinner out. The place is gorgeous, apartments are very clean and it is only 20 mins by bus into Florence. What more could you want after a full day in Florence is to come home and relax, sitting by the pool and gazing out over the stunning scenery - very peaceful and relaxing. This place is suitable for families or couples so enjoy!

Just returned from our stay in Tuscany. Our stay at the residence was one I will never forget! We had 2 rooms for our family if 5 adults. The rooms were clean and each room had a kitchen with most everything we needed. We had a nice patio off of our room that we used to enjoy our evenings all together. Most of all the hosts Jennifer and Franchesco went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable!! Jennifer helped us with reservations and sites to see, and arranged a wonderful wine tasting for us. Franchesco drive us to the market and on our wine tasting adventure!! You can also catch the city bus into Florence and walk to the market. All in all I will say my stay at the residence was outstanding.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this wonderful location in the heart of Tuscany. We stayed in the tower with another couple and we all found the facilities great. The most outstanding feature of our stay we're our incredibly welcoming and helpful hosts, Jennifer from New Zealand and Francesco from Italy. They went out of their way to help us plan and arrange day trips and booking visits to tourist attractions. Also they provided a wonderful barbecue dinner for all their guests. They treat their guests like family and we would happily stay with them again. We have recommended Residence Rocca del Palazzaccio widely to family and friends.

We stayed again in Rocca del Palazzaccio and it was as wonderful as earlier. Apartements are really comfortable and very clean. Best are the hosts Jennifer and Francesco, they really make us feel at home. It will be nice to come back there again quite soon.

Large villa suite with a living room, kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom with exit to a small garden. The host, Francesco was extremely nice and helpful. Pretty close to Florence (about 20 min), we were with a car but there's a bus line nearby.
Finding the place was little challenging... There is no breakfast included and not much places to eat around (it's just near a small village), though I guess you can use the kitchen.
