Hotel Paggeria Medicea
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Artimino
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 May 2012

This is one of the most beautiful locations in the world to escape the frenitic pace of 21st century life. This Medicci Villa and stables has been tastefully converted and captures the essence of past times with the comforts of good food and warm atmosphere. If you need to get away for a restorative break come to Artimeno. You will find peace and quiet, a wonderful hotel and friendly helpful staff.

Artimino is a small village like affair in the Tuscan hills near Florence that you will not be able to access without a car or taxi. It is about one hour drive from Pisa airport up some fairly winding minor roads. I have been there several times over the past decade relating to the conference center where I attend residential meetings over a weekend. The hotel is very cut off, and basically if you are staying there, there is nothing local, except walking unless you have your own transport. The hotel (not the village apartments) has a small number of rooms on two floors. There is no lift, and my best description of the environs is 'rustic'. Staff are friendly and try to be helpful, but I am a bit perplexed why it takes three of them to make a cup of coffee. If you want your coffee to British tastes, this is unlikely to occur
Rooms are fairly big, but with steps and twists and turns to bathrooms and very Italianly basic e.g. uncarpeted, little soft furnishings. There are safes and telephones, but the electricity is the funny southern european sockets that adaptors may not fit. I have a Fuji multipin adaptor that fitted, but the standard northern Europe two pin job will not work. Little choice of television channels. There is free wifi internet in communal areas, and ethernet available in rooms.
Breakfast is typically Italian with a small choice of cold dishes. The hotel breakfast room is cramped and the seating is clearly not intended for comfort and convenience. There is an impressive seating area outside for when the weather is good.
The good think about the hotel is the food, and having eaten in all its restaurants over the years, it is the main reason for returning. The variety and quality of the food is excellent and the portions overwhelming.
This is a great place if you want to be cut off from civilisation.

Room Tip: A ground floor room is necessary if you have luggage. If you stay in the village apartments make sur...

This is a great place if you want to be cut off from civilisation.

Your last phrase is a fantastic way to think about Artimino.

Thank you for your post.
You understand for sure the philosofy that such a place conveys to your soul.

Very relaxing hotel set in rolling hills. Rooms are of good size and kept very clean. The swimming pool is set in the garden with sun loungers set out ad hoc in the grounds so plenty of space for all guests to have some quiet space. The associated albergo Ristoranti Biagio Pignatta serves interesting food of high quality but is not formal. A real treat.

As a seasoned traveller I have only one word to describe Artimino - PERFECTION!
I have visited Artimino many times, in all seasons, and each experience is as wonderful and inspiring as the other. Set amid the Tuscan hills, the panoramic views from the Paggeria Medicea are breathtaking, and can be enjoyed from the terrace either with a mimosa at breakfast, or a prosecco at sunset!.
A world onto itself, Artimino has so much to offer, a beautiful pool, biking and tennis for the active enthusiasts, art & history for culture buffs, wine and world-class cuisine for the traveling gourmets, and better yet, priceless peace and tranquility for everyone!.
I have stayed both at the Village and the Hotel, and each have their own distinctive charm. Rooms vary in size and decor but all have stunning views, are always spotless and perfectly appointed in authentic Tuscan style. The Medieval Village itself is wonderful, just a short walk down an olive tree lined boulevard, it is truly unique with a great sense of history and culture. The local Cantina del Redi resturaunt is superb. and the gelato from the little gelateria is out of this world - I also love visiting the little shop in the Village, it is well stocked with unique gifts, local olive oils, pesto's and wines to take home and savor.
Overall my experiences at Artimino have been first class, the management and staff are exceptional, from reception to bar staff, all are professional and friendly. And finally, with regard to children, I must say, my seven year old has always delighted in the magic of Artimino, she loves swinging and climbing in the little playground, diving into the pool, chasing the cats around the gardens, and is always 'doted' on by the caring and attentive staff!
I highly recommend Artimino as a world-class destination spot!

Stayed there for the first week in Aug 2011, family, two adults, two kids, the area was great, the hotels location was beautiful, rooms were huge for a family, but the hotel was lacking something for a family, they were not exactly kid friendly, although they tried to be.
The swimming pool was freezing even in 36 degree heat, massive grounds, but not allowed to play ball games !
The restaurant connected to the hotel was very expensive (to the point of taking the mickey a bit), nothing for children at all !, we found a great restaurant on the main road (il scuderia de la antonoria - eat there, it's great food, great service and excellent value for money)
To be fair though, the hotel was clean, some of the staff excellent and it depends if you have kids and what kind of holiday you are looking for.

The area of the swimming pool is not allowed for ball games but the Park is so big that you can find the right place where to play!
