The farm for adults

If you are a guest at Villa la Palagina, you can buy the farm's products, as well as take part in a cellar tasting of oil, wine and honey or, during the summer, experience the thrill of a dinner in the vineyard, immersed in the unique scenery of the Tuscan countryside. Contact us for more information and to book one of our farm experiences.

The farm with children

The La Palagina Farm organises many activities to introduce your children to the garden plants and fruit, bees and honey, as well as all the farm animals, for a day of fun in the open air. Contact us for more information and to book one of our farm experiences.

Yoga in the Vineyard

The yoga practised in the vineyard establishes the union between a healthy body and a healthy mind.

The open-air lesson with our yoga teacher will allow you to get in touch with two of humanity's most ancient pleasures: yoga and wine. The nature in which you will be literally immersed will improve your practice and your awareness of your body.

Guided pathways

We have designed a panoramic trek in a protected area of the Valdarno. Have you ever heard of the "Balze"? They are geological formations dating back three million years that generate a small canyon. After this nature trail, we will explore the village of Castelfranco together and end our excursion with a recreational stop before returning to the base.

Mountain bike tour

In the bike saddle and under the careful guidance of our expert, we will discover the panorama surrounding Villa La Palagina through the hills and the woods, up to the house once inhabited by the poet Petrarch. We will then visit Castello Pratelli and the ancient village of Loppiano and, to end with a flourish, we will enjoy refreshments at a local farm with a tasting featuring typical products.

E-bike tour

Pedal assist bicycles will allow you to fully enjoy the spectacular roads that make the Chianti region so fascinating. You will cross unique panoramas dotted with vineyards and olive trees before reaching the village of Greve in Chianti, the final stage of the tour, where a typical local product tasting will await you in a welcoming environment brimming with history.

Chianti in a hot air balloon

If you have decided to enjoy a magical and unique experience, a hot air balloon flight in the skies of Tuscany is just the thing for you!

Take off is from San Casciano in Val di Pesa at the first light of day so you can watch the sunrise while in flight, taking in the spectacle of the sun rising between the Chianti hills. It's also a great idea for a wedding proposal or a honeymoon that is definitely out of the ordinary!

Chianti on a Vespa

Imagine exploring the Tuscan hills in full 60s Dolce Vita style. All the charm of the two-wheeler made in Pontedera and the allure of the Tuscan hills: nothing will make you happier than a Vespa tour, especially if you are a fan of these vintage motorcycles.

The departure point is Villa La Palagina and there are many itineraries to choose from!

Chianti in a Fiat 500

How can you turn the most typical postcard images of Tuscany into a reality and experience one of the legends of modern Italy up close? Jump in a Fiat 500, a completely restored vintage car that will whisk you on a road trip to admire vineyards, medieval villages and forests.

There are many routes and each one deserves to be explored!

The Mall-Luxury Outlet

If you love shopping and fashion, the answer is the Mall Firenze: a paradise for dream clothes and shoes, accessories, fragrances and jewellery. Exclusive boutiques such as Gucci, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Tod's, Fendi etc. await you!

Book the Personal Shopper service with us for a day of shopping tailored for you and in keeping with your style.

Castello di Verrazzano wine tasting

Our wine tour goes through some of the most spectacular scenery in Chianti, the Castello di Verrazzano, immersing you in the atmosphere that was home to majestic courts in past centuries.

The tour includes a guided tour of the Castle's historic gardens and ageing cellars, followed by a tasting featuring a selection of the best wines produced using organic farming.

Cooking Class

Together with our chef, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Tuscan food and wine traditions. With our cooking class based around traditional recipes, you will learn how to prepare authentic dishes by taking advantage of the freshness of the zero km ingredients that we grow on our estate.

The lessons take place in a friendly atmosphere at the restaurant of Villa La Palagina with our Chef Luciano: don't miss the opportunity to discover his culinary secrets! Upon request, dinner and a wine tasting can be included in the experience, and you can also request the cooking class to be held at your villa or farmhouse.

Chef at Home

Do you want to impress someone special, your family or a group of friends for a particular occasion? Our Chef at Home will transform your villa into a gourmet restaurant for a completely new dining experience! Turn an anniversary, a birthday or even a marriage proposal into something deliciously unforgettable.

Dinner in the vineyard or the olive grove

Complete your rustic Tuscan experience with a romantic dinner in one of two very evocative locations: our olive grove or the vineyard. Whether you are with your partner, your family or your friends, you will love tasting typical summer dishes such as bruschetta, pappa al pomodoro and panzanella at sunset, surrounded by the trees and plants of our estate, accompanied by the sound of crickets. Don't miss this thrilling experience!

Welcome or farewell dinner

Have you just arrived in Tuscany and feel a little disoriented, but can't wait to completely immerse yourself in its lively food and wine scene? Or is it your last night in Chianti and you want to end your holiday with a touch of beauty, sampling local flavours and pairings one last time?

We'll be waiting for you at sunset at the restaurant of Villa La Palagina, or directly at one of the farmhouses you have rented, to accompany you on this journey within a journey!
