The agriturismo

In the vicinity of the medieval centre of San Gimignano, nestled in the rolling hills of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, the farm holiday is perfectly located for exploring Tuscany’s most prized art towns such as Siena (30Km), Florence (35Km), and Volterra (25Km). The farmhouse Palagetto di sotto is part of Azienda Agricola Palagetto, a local concern which produces exclusive wines and fine extra-virgin olive oil, whilst offering high standard holiday accommodation in six comfortable double rooms and two Suites fitted with all modern comforts for a relaxing holiday in the heart of the countryside.

The accommodation

Immersed in the peace and the tranquillity of the Tuscan countryside, it is a lovely farmhouse surrounded by a splendid rose-garden, which produces its colourful flowers for great part of the year spreading delicate fragrances all around. In this ancient building Agriturismo Niccolai provides comfortable accommodation in 6 double bedrooms and two Suites with modern ensuite bathrooms, and furnished elegantly with antiques. The rooms are named after the traditional Tuscan vines which made Azienda Agricola Palagetto famous all over the world:

Room Vernaccia:  double bedroom on the ground floor which opens directly into the garden. The room is nicely furnished, and has a private shower room, satellite TV, air conditioning, heating, and wooden floors;

Recently restored adding modern touches and furniture to the original architectural features, this suite has a luxury private bathroom with chromatic shower, and it is fitted with all comforts such as air conditioning and satellite TV;

This room enjoys a lovely view and boasts a private garden area equipped with tables and chairs. Private shower room, satellite TV, heating, wooden floors and walk in closet.

A delicious breakfast with a savoury/sweet buffet where guests can taste the finest Tuscan pastry and the traditional seasoned meats.
Inviting traditional Tuscan dinners, that in wintertime are served in the cosy atmosphere of Il Vecchio Granaio (the old barn) dining room, at Villa Palagetto; in spring and summertime dinners are served in the barnyard, under the stars.

Relax  in the well-kept gardens and/or in the panoramic sun terraces, and for the most energetic ones, long swimming sessions in the swimming pool.

Activities and surrounding

Guided tours of the modern and efficient wine cellar with its fascinating barrels and barriques stockrooms, two different areas for red wine and for white wine making, a bottling room, and a storage for refinement in bottle. To be mentioned the estate mill where, from late October to December, visitors can attend the oil making process and the magic moment when olives are pressed to obtain an excellent extra-virgin olive oil.

Guided wine tastings in the beautiful and professional tasting room, next to the winery, where visitors can taste several types of local wines (red and white wines, wines to be drunk young or for long ageing) that made Azienda Agricola Palagetto famous all over the world. Not to forget Vin Santo (typical Tuscan dessert wine), grappa, and extra-virgin olive oil.

Unforgettable walks throughout the hills, across the vineyards, the olive groves, and the woodland, to breathe the atmosphere of this natural paradise, walking along the well-marked footpaths of the CAI network.

For guests willing to discover Tuscany, the position of the holiday farm is the best of two worlds: the most prized medieval art towns – such as Siena, Colle di Val d’Elsa, Monteriggioni – can be visited on a day trip. Florence, with its Renaissance treasures, is also easily accessible, whilst the Tuscany coast can be reached in less than 1 hour by car.

We can provide you many other services such as: shopping tours, sightseeing tours, trekking tours, bike tours, cooking classes and many more...

    "want to return again and again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


    I stayed at Villa palaghetto: actually torre palaghetto in both the tower apt and the orcio apt below. I read the one review where someone had been complaining about darkened windows in the tower and heat etc. i believe they must be mistaken. I have stayed in the tower room which had lovely views in all directions,and it was clear glass, arched windows; stone walls and pretty much couldnt be any more romantic. it was late May and it was not too hot in the tower with no air. the stone walls and perhaps being up high was nice and fresh.they did put a little fan in there but we didnt need itI My daughter stayed in the lower bedroom and found it quite comfortable.thought the place was awesome. their little restaurant was fabulous, wine tour was good and their olive oil,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, OMG,,,,,,,,well,,,,,,,,delicous fresh herby, buttery richness!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets just say i went home with as much as I could. on the other side of the pool is their b and b accomodations which are all nice rooms with a/c. we reccomended this place to our friend on their honeymoon and he returned with praise fro the reccomendation.
    the apts are a bit older and more rustic, but beautiful and that is their charm. I came here to not stay in a holiday inn, but to feel the charm of tuscany and we certainly got it there!!!!!!!! ps--- awesome location. can walk into town in 10 minutes

    "I advise against the arrangement in the tower"


    I discourage the accommodation in the tower, the windows are darkened to reduce the internal heat, the view can only be seen if you open the windows of the loft area, which is very hot, and is not cooled enough by the air conditioner. All little agri

    Dear Francesca, we are very sorry that you did not feel at home inside the Torre apartment, which is located in an ancient medieval tower and is a very suggestive apartment. However we want to clarify that you speak of air conditioner, which is not present (so obviously does not work) in our apartments. We ask ourselves if she is sure of where she has stayed with us, since we would not want her to be mistaken with another arrangement. Hoping to get it back as our welcome guest, maybe in a room equipped with air conditioning. Best regards, Villa Palagetto
