Accommodation "Tower" dating from XII century, whose restoration was completed in 2014, is 120 square meters, with a separate entrance, three double bedrooms all with bathroom, kitchen and living room with windows overlooking the countryside.

The space

The restoration of the tower was made with materials and techniques that allow this day to appreciate its charm. Wood and stone are the protagonists of this recovery.
  All the rooms have windows overlooking the surrounding countryside. Interior furnishings come from a search based on the recovery of what is history, and according to a more modern reuse, without giving up functionality.
Housing is accessed by an external staircase in stone, on two levels, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, kitchen and living room.

Guest access

The organic farm Palaia, spread over 25 hectares of hilly
territory at an altitude of about 350 meters above sea level.
On these hills of Florence, between the valleys of the rivers
Arno and Sieve, we produce organic extra virgin olive oil
and cultivate vineyards in Chianti designation D.O.C.G.
The constant search for excellence permeates the corporate
philosophy driven by passion and genuine principles. The
farmhouse complex consists of an original nucleus dates from
to 12th century, later expanded in the 16th century,
composed of a square tower, a farmhouse with loggia and a
barn. The buildings have been the subject of several
interventions of restoration. The last one took place in 2014
with recovery and requalification of the tower. The
farmhouse complex contains three accommodations: "Torre",
"Focolare" and "Botti". The farmhouse is first of all
hospitality but also the territory, environment, passion for
what we cultivate and love for our surroundings. It is a set of
values, the value of the land and labour that requires,
traditions and also pleasure. Pleasure to share with you a
land that we love, because all of this belongs to
you too. Choose a farm holiday means getting in
touch with nature, loving it as it is, with its perfumes,
colors, silence and why not with its noise, enjoying the
flavors of its fruits. Or just stay in the farmhouse that we
have recovered with the utmost care and attention, in respect
for all that is past and history. A stay in Palaia will be for you
an unforgettable opportunity to discover these treasures, as
well as finding a friendly and familiar place.

Silvia, was very helpful and kind. We had a great time staying in the tower. It was my parents, in laws and my wife and we all enjoyed our time there very much and all for different reasons. I was extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the tower, it was impeccable! The decor is simple and very well thought. The views to the countryside are outstanding and there is a wonderful store up the road were you can buy food and other basic necessities. We are very glad we choose Azienda Agricola Palaia!

Myself and my family (my husband, one teenager, one young child and a toddler) stayed at this magical place middle June for a couple of nights. I believe I read every review before booking it to make sure it fits everyone needs. The host Silvia is sweet, thoughtful and she did her best to impress us. She even cooked a delicious dinner for us (observing our special requests! Not included in the price of the stay and has to be agreed ahead of time). The place is truly magical. No pictures could do it justice. The rooms were crispy clean, the place felt brand new (no broken or fractured items, nothing out of order), the surroundings breathtaking. All promised accommodations were present and available. I saw a review where someone is complaining about the WiFi not working inside the house. It is true, it doesn't. but come on, if you come to stay at the place like this one, do what we did - ENJOY and make memories. We had to be connected for work purposes and there is a great WiFi outside where you can combine business and pleasure until you say 'no more' to business. There is a little store very close to it (driving distance) which has incredible fresh bread, cheese, olives, fruits .. you name it! One night on the way back from Florence we just dropped by and in less than 15 minutes cooked ourselves a meal of a lifetime. Everyone was so kind and sweet. I would love to stay there again soon.

Our stay with Silvia was amazing her attention to detail is evident. Our place was clean and had everything we needed. We were even able to convince Silvia to make a true Tuscan meal, it was so amazing and the amount of love that was put into it was clear. If you are looking for a true Tuscan farm experience you can do no better than staying with Silvia. We looking forward to staying again. Not only did we have fun but both our daughters did as well( 4 and 10 year olds)

Sylvia is a warm, gracious and caring host! She welcomed us to her house with the delicious authentic Tuscan meal for the entire family (approximately 20 euros per person). The venue has an incredible view of nature. The house is part of a farm so there are horses, chickens and other animals. The house is in excellent condition with modern furniture and nice decoration.

Silvia was an excellent host. She was very kind and welcoming. She even shared a bottle of wine from her vineyard. We stayed in the torre (tower) and it was amazing. It was Incredibly clean, comfortable and updated with modern amenities. The whole place was beautiful. We loved the location away from tourists. It was almost as if you were in your own little world. We would highly recommend this place.
