How do you choose a rural boutique hotel in Tuscany when they are all so beautiful? I spent hours browsing and comparing…. in the end, we chose Paluffo, because of its ecological ethos; in particular, we were curious to try the bio-pool… and the result was absolutely awesome , as the other 5 star reviewers attest. We just wished we had more time! Liana recommended a fabulous restaurant, too, the Osteria Casa Chianti, where we had an excellent meal. Our weekend was a total success.
We had the Liberty room with the round bath ( not so practical really, but fun to see). There is an honesty bar in the lounge , from where you can pick up a bottle of local wine or micro-brewery beer and enjoy the dusk falling over the Tuscan Hills…. Bliss! Bring your own crisps, though!
