What a great place. The staff and owner were so great to deal with. The scenery and grounds were gorgeous. The way food and drinks worked was incredibly accommodating and convenient. I think about my time here a few times a month and would go back without hesitation. Amazing, don't miss it!

2 bedroom, 2 bath, full kitchen with sitting area that was divine. Morning buffet breakfast was adequate and high quality. Eggs on request. Coffee made to order.

Nothing was too much trouble and, even...

We stayed for one night in the Forno House at Il Paluffo, but could have easily stayed a week or more! Tucked out of the way in the hillsides around Certaldo,the building is the perfect mix of rustic with modern conveniences as well as eco-friendly technologies. Upon entering and checking in you're led through a 15th Century Olive mill into...

Excellent B&B with a romantic medieval setting. The views from the rooms and grounds are spectacular. Modern conveniences within the building originally constructed in the 16th century. The breakfast (somewhat pricey) area is located within an old wine storage cellar. Located not far from excellent restaurants and the medieval town of Certaldo.

Rustic and secluded, but with a great location. Easy to get to a ton of surrounding farms and wineries, and they even give you a free iPad to use with a sim card so you can navigate without using data. Fantastic spot overall.
