Heritage for humanity

A place to be. A place to return to.
Palagina offers rural heritage for the human soul. A place to experience fully and purely. A place where you can rediscover yourself. Often, you might visit places, you look around, you explore. Here, you can just be. Our experiences enable you to tap into the simple joy of Tuscan life, in a person-focused setting.

Seasonal events

An event schedule that respects the course of nature is our seasonal programming: from March to November we present themed festivals to spend a day in the open air. The events fall once a month and respect the country tradition of the area.


Animal encounters at our farm help to build friendships and develop respect and love for others. We arrange visits and activities with local schools and summer camps, enabling children to get close to animals from a young age through fun and educational activities. And we host events for adults too.


Located in the orangery of the historic house, looking out over the Chianti hills, our restaurant, il ristoro con Burde, offers a contemporary take on Tuscan cuisine. You can also experience authentic local flavours at our Palagina wine and olive oil tastings, at our Zero Food Mile aperitivo events or by dining under the stars, in the midst of our vineyard.

Local experts

Join one of our expert beekeepers on a visit to our beehives that’s guaranteed to keep you and our precious bees safe. If that’s not for you, why not gather herbs and learn how to use them in traditional recipes, discover cheesemaking techniques, study woodworking with expert carpenters or weave baskets with local craftspeople?


Discover how to identify the queen from 60,000 worker beers and learn about the different castes of bees. The session ends with a tasting of local honey. Continuing the subject of well-being, why not join us for some yoga… in the vineyard? Follow our instructor for a unique opportunity to connect body and soul, surrounded by nature.

Open air

Enjoy the beautiful fresh air of Palagina on a bicycle tour (e-bikes are also available). If walking is more your thing, you can join one of our scenic hikes in the Valdarno nature reserve, walking from the crags known as the “Balze” to the village of Castelfranco. And the swimming pool at the main house is open whenever you need to rest and cool off.
And if you desire a moment of total relaxation, why not spend a day at our enchanting swimming pool? You can enjoy the sun, take a refreshing swim, and take in the view of the surrounding hills.
