“La Dolce Vita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

We spent 7 beautiful nights at Villa La Palagina for our honeymoon. The service was 5 start from beginning to end, from the first email conversation to when we left in the early hours of the morning. In a nutshell, apart from having an amazing location, the rooms are very comfortable and clean; the reception staff very helpful and the restaurant...oh well...100/100. The food was finger licking and the staff very professional but always with a smile on there faces. Breakfast was good and they even prepared us one to go when we had to leave early.

Hope to return one day.

To try and buy there olive oil : Laudemio...and you won't regret it!

I want to thank Eric Veroliemeulen (GM) at the Villa La Palagina in Figline Valdarno, Italy and his kind and courteous staff for my Wonderful accommodations and the excellent food. My experience was like a fairly tale and a dream come true. I was able to relax with such beautiful vistas both day and night. I absorbed the sights and wonderful cuisine offered and the peace and abiltiy to get some writing accomplished and exercise at my liesure.
Thank you guys for the opportunity to share this wonderful place and view with you. I did not want to leave and I would love to return soon.
I strongly recommend it. My compliments to the chef and the rest of the staff.

Room Tip: There is no bad room. We stayed in one of the houses that holds six people with a great view.

Top notch all the way. Incredibly beautiful facility and surroundings. Food is without comparrison the Best! Staff is friendly and always helpful. The GM, Eric, is world-wise, knowledgable and a friend from the beginning. The views, the views, the views! WOW does not do it justice. Take in the local town of Figline Valderno, rent a car or take the train to nearby (or more distant) cities, or just hang out and relax at the Villa. It is indeed a world unto itself. You just can't go wrong with Villa la Palagina.

The staff, the view, the warmth, the view, the easy, the view the loveliness of it all! I went, I saw, I fell in love! If you want to visit Italy, visit this Villa! This off the beaten path Villa is wonderful and well worth a visit. The food is great, just typing about it brings back scent of the olives and the feel of the Tuscany breeze. You owe it to yourself to visit this Villa, and Tuscany!

We were so surprised when we arrived at Villa La Palagina...It is off the beaten path and the views were breath-taking! Everywhere you look the view is just amazing and pictures can't even begin to capture the natural beauty! The staff were so helpful and accomodating, Especially Ciata and Eric, the director. We met the residence artist Susan Chalkley and she was especially warm, friendly and helpful. Our rooms were outstanding with clean, large bathrooms, great views, king sized beds and mini bars. They have 2 large infinity pools and a great restaurant. Breakfast was also included and wonderful every morning. We just can't say enough great things about this place! Everything was great, especially the value!

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 12 & 13 (my parents in one and my husband & I in the other) both spacious...

This is a GREAT hotel... service, location, rooms, breakfast... everything, this was the best hotel we stayed at during our 2 weeks holiday through Italy. We loved it there and would stay again in an heartbeat! Stunning view from the rooms, great infinity pool area, covered parking available, helpful suggestions for winery tours, staff is helpful to make phone calls and set up tours for you... It was a great stay! Clean comfortable and exactly what you picture Tuscany to be!

Most beautiful Tuscany setting in the Italian countryside. The Villa is stunning and the service is very good. The rooms are not completely what you would expect by visiting their website but they are acceptable. The GM is an outgoing chap and overall it was a very good experience. Food was a bit hit or miss some nights great some nights not so great.

Room Tip: Request a room with a shower on a lower level (too many steps).
