Il Palagio is situated on the banks of the river Arno, just a short distance away from Florence, on the road that runs along the river towards Pontassieve. This beautiful and ancient building dates back to the year 1200 and originally consisted of a tower guarding a mill and a fortified courtyard. Recently restored and perfectly renovated, the house has been divided into 4 residential units, one of which is used by the owners during the summer months. The guest apartments are located on a side wing of the building and there is also a large, well-tended outdoor area divided into private gardens with amenities for each apartment. There is a shaded car park inside the property. Barbecue and ping pong. The beautiful swimming pool (12 X 20 meters) is available to guests and also occasionally used by the owners.
Just 200 meters from the property is a riding school where it is possible to book riding lessons or excursions on horseback.
There are food shops in Pontassieve, which is just 3 km away. Florence is a 10 minute drive away. To avoid parking problems, it is also possible to take a direct train from Pontassieve to Florence.

"Just to let your company know what a fabulous time we had at Palagio in Bagno a Ripoli. Owner and her family were so welcoming and gracious. The villa was wonderful, great space and so convenient to the train to Florence. We arrived late Sat. evening and owner left us some staples to get us through Sunday until markets opened on Monday.

We would recommend this Villa to anyone traveling to the Tuscan area.

"We enjoy the holiday in Palagio. The people was very friendly, the rooms were great and the swimming-pool very clean. It´s a wunderful building! All the sigtseeings are very near (Firence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa....).
My best wishes

"I was really very content with the service provided by Ville in Italia.
You did provide exactly the right information that a customer was looking for.
Every time I had a query I got immediate response and felt that I was "in good hands" with Ville in Italia.
The Palagio was as described on your web site. The owners were very kind and helpful, too.
Besides some mosquitos there also was nothing to complain. And especially that everything (water, electricity) is in the price was appreciated.
In short, there was really nothing to complain about!
Best regards
