Paolo, Antonella & Edoardo, the Owners of La Paggeria

Meet Antonella, Paolo & Edoardo, Owners of La Paggeria

About 40 years ago, Paolo dedicated his body and soul to a project that back then seemed daunting. The idea was to restore the home which had been reduced to rumble back to its original splendor. The project, no matter how large it seemed, turned out to be a great success!

For the last 10 years, we have opened our home to all those who seek a refuge in the natural landscape of Tuscany, just a few minutes outside of Florence. This is a special place we love to share with our guests, who tell us they come to feel at home, taken care of and pampered from the moment they arrive.
Our desire is to bring you into our home to share our culture and our style of life so that you experience the best of Tuscany... an experience we are sure will be one of your best memories of your time spent in Italy.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

~ Paolo, Antonella & Edoardo
