Arrival day: Any Car hire: Recommended
This characteristic and typical Tuscan building dating back to 1596 is located next to the beautiful Villa La Ferdinanda and was once the home to the attendants and pages of this imposing villa. The restoration has been carefully carried out leaving wherever possible the original features untouched including chimneys, fireplaces, antique wash basins in stone, old wooden beams, wonderful terracotta floor tiles and not to forget the amazing fresco of Saint Antonio.
The hotel is in a perfect position surrounded by a splendid Mediterranean park accompanied by superb views across the rolling Tuscan hills. The 37 bedrooms are all found on the ground and the first floor leading off one of the covered and arched porticos. Charmingly rustic, local materials and pretty fabrics have been used to create a chic ambiance always with comfort in mind – all rooms have air conditioning, satellite TV, WiFi, telephone, minibar and lovely ensuite shower or bathrooms – some with jacuzzis.
The gardens around the hotel are a delight and are beautifully maintained with an abundance of trees and flowering bushes. The large pool is surrounded by grassy lawns and there are plenty of sunbeds for relaxing, snoozing or just taking in the wonderful vista.
The position of Hotel Paggeria Medicea enables you to easily visit many nearby towns and hamlets which naturally all have a selection of restaurants but should you prefer to dine in these magnificent surroundings there are 2 options open to you: Biagio Pignatta – a grand restaurant with a spectacular terrace offering a super choice of local dishes and the Cantina del Redi, the original wine-making cellar where you may enjoy some rustic Tuscan dishes all washed down with some very palatable home-made wine.
The Hotel Paggeria Medicea offers super accommodation in a truly lovely setting – well worth a try for a short break or a longer stay.

Very straight forward. Excellent recommendations and clearly know your stuff. Beautiful hotel with real character and lots of space to unwind. Zaira was first class – helpful and there if and when we needed her. Very impressed with EI as a first time customer. Would return to EI and the hotel without hesitation.
