In the heart of Tuscany

On the southern slope of a wooded hill stands the little hamlet of Palagio. Discreetly tucked away on a dirt road meandering between vines, woods and former priories, afewhouses encircle a courtyard, guardingPalagio’s precious secret – itsbreathtaking 180-degree view,sweeping fromthe faraway Apennines in the East, across the rollinghills of the Sienese landscape to the West, where the sun sets.
Palagio is 40 km from Florence and 12 km from Siena. Pisa Airport is an hour and a half’s drive away, on the Tuscan coast.
