Reviewed 29 September 2011

The grounds are pretty. The views beautiful. The bed comfortable. The road noise was disturbing at all hours and did not match the idyllic location. We NEVER saw the owners. The check in instructions said check in was only between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. We left Florence early so we could arrive during the two hour block only to be met with a note saying the key was in the door. NOT a good way to start! The breakfast was the same thing every day.. no variety. This isn't a bed and breakfast or charming country house vacation, but an impersonnal hotel with an average and boring breakfast. Oh, and a pack of wild dogs yipped and barked throughout the night. Disconcerting.

Thank you for your personal review, we take care a lot about Customer opinion.
We remeber your family that in all voucher we send to our Guest there are all informations about personl booking and there is also mentioned to call our family for any kind of delay and in your case we didn’t recive any informations, emails or phone calls, because it wasn’t a problem wait longer for you. We inform you also that our house is an hotel and not a resort but only a warm family house composed by apartments and three exclusive rooms where all Guest are part of our little family.
I want to unswer also about the point: “We NEVER saw the owners”; your family left every day the house after breakfast service to be back again before dinner time and most of the time after dinner time so it was very difficult meet with us.
At the end we would like to remember to your family that you decided to have your vacation in a countryside and not in a centre of the town so it’s possibile hear during a day some wild nature animal that are part of the Tuscany atmosphere.
We wish also all the best for you and we hope see you again in the future

Best Regards
Eleonora & Francesco Angiolini

We had a great stay at Il Paggino. De comfort room is cosy, had a great shower en a nice seating outside. De swimmingpool was clean and big enough. De view from the swimmingpool is breathtaking. Wercould sit there all evening, just watching te sun go down en looking over the typically tuscan hills. The breakfast whas a little simple in comparison with the overall stay.

Again, we liked our stay very much! We visited Il Paggino in 2007 and now in June 2011 again. Again we felt right at home! We have had a great reception and the accommondation is perfect. Just outside the town, but the cities are nearby. The pool, appartment, beds, shower and kitchen are great! Good recommendation of restaurants nearby and the hosts are always there when you need them. They speak very good English! In short, we have enjoyed our stay and will be back soon!!!

The area is amazing. Very romantic place with beautiful garden where we found swimming pool, grill and play ground. Our room was very comfortable and neat. I really liked the fact that we had well-equipped kitchen where we could prepare meals and then eat them in the garden. It is very close to Radda in Chianti (1km) and we could easily get to Siena, Florence or Castelina. I would definitely recommand the place both for families and friends (couples).

My husband and I stayed in the Agrifoglio apartment and we couldn't have been more pleased. The apartment was exactly what we wanted with a lovely living room, great small kitchen, beautiful bedroom and two bathrooms. But honestly we spent the majority of the time on our terrace which had the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous views of the Tuscan valley. The owners were wonderfully kind and helpful with a glass of wine at our arrival, a basket of food in the room, and advice on restaurants, bus schedules, routes to various locations and more. The pool was a great place to unwind and all the property grounds are lovely. Plus, it's very close to Radda and Volpaia, two of the most charming towns around. I can't recommend it enough!

We spent a while researching Villas in the Chianti region and were delighted on our arrival to find such a beautiful Villa at the Farmhouse in Radda "Il Paggino". The views and location are breathtaking, and peace and serenity come as standard. The owners Eleonora & Francesco are charming and made us feel very welcome. They clearly have a passion for what they do, and for providing a wonderful environment in which to relax. The property was ideally located for trips to Volterra, Siena, Florence, local restaurants, and for the Mugello MotoGP, or for when you just fancy a lazy day by the pool supporting the local vineyards. On reading the couple of negative reviews, I struggle to relate to the puerile comments and suggest other readers ignore. Maybe you should try Butlins next time?

We spent six nights at Il Paggino from October 9-15 in the Gelsomino Apartment. We were very pleased with our accomodation- two beautiful bedrooms, two bathrooms, large living room, kitchen and dining room. We found the kitchen well equipped and were especially happy to have an American coffee maker. Because the weather that week was cool and cloudy many of the days, we were not able to fully enjoy the picturesque grounds but I would love to visit again when the weather was warmer to enjoy the many patio areas to take in the wonderful views. We appreciated having WiFi enabling us to keep in touch with family at home. We did miss having a TV or stereo system in the apartment.
Il Paggino is about 2 km from Radda, which is a lovely Tuscan town with many interesting shops, restaurants, as well as a well stocked grocery store (COOP). We had rented a car in Pisa and had a pleasant drive to Radda via Greve in Chianti. We made easy day trips from Il Paggino to Florence, (driving in to Piazza Michelangelo and parking there for the day), Siena, San Gimignano, Montalcino, and Pienza.
After reading some criticisms of the owners, I think it should be mentioned that they have just had a new baby and the normal routine has most certainly be disrupted. We found Francesco to be a very obliging host and did not mind that he was absent some of the time we were there.
We would highly recommend Il Paggino.
