The B&B Yellow minisuite is located in the owner's Manor House B&B at the first floor (no elevator), has a private living decorated with fresco paintings and antique French empire furnitures. The room has en-suite bathroom with a green marble shower
The B&B Yellow minisuite is located In the owner's Main House B&B where four double bedrooms are available all richly furnished, with fresco paintings and with well finished private en-suite bathrooms (only the Affrescata has a private but not en-suite bathroom). Paluffo is an historic 15th century building restored in 2010 conserving its original structure and design.
The walls of our houses, made of stone, river pebbles and bricks, have undergone a five years conservative restoration that enhanced their architectural and constructive features.
Floors are made of local terracotta with handmade bricks recalling the Florentine tradition. Green building products have been used to plaster and paint the walls of our houses in order to ensure the best comfort to our guests.
Rooms have been decorated combining antique furniture, mostly belonging to Paluffo house, and modern Italian design; special attention has been given to the design and functionality of bathrooms where we offer shampoo, shower and hand soap locally produced from organic olive oil without chemicals.
All rooms have central heating and air conditioning and a broadband WiFi Internet connection; for the best dreams we selected latex matrasses for beds and pillows.
Paluffo features four independent apartments, each of them with a private garden – Torre, Stillo, Forno and Frantoio -, and the owner’s Main House, with four rooms available for B&B.
The housing estate includes the historical olive mill, a fermentation room used in the past for the production of wine, a wine cellar dug in the tufa rock, a bread oven and two wells. The fermentation room and the wine cellar are now at the disposal of guests as common spaces with sofas and fireplace.
Paluffo has also a unique natural pool without any chemical for water purification.
We have reduced the environmental impact of the structure using different technologies and solutions. Electricity is produced by a 12kWatt photovoltaic system. Heating and cooling systems use renewable energy: there are heat pumps powered by photovoltaic panels, hot water heating using thermal solar panel and pellet (compressed recycled wood) boilers in addition to the heating system.
Rainwater is collected and used for irrigation, while waste water is regenerated through herbal purification methods.
The calm and relaxing energy of Paluffo results from the delicate balance among nature and buildings, from the presence of ancient trees, from the use of traditional farming methods excluding the use of weed-killers, insecticides and indiscriminate exploitation of the soil, from the biodiversity of plants and flowers.
Paluffo is surrounded by six hectares of land on which olive trees and grape vines are organically cultivated interspersed with old fruit trees (peache, apple, pear, blackberry) and other trees typical of the Tuscan scrub.
Guests can taste and buy the extravirgin olive oil produced in the estate. We have also bee hives that produce pure natural honey. We offer also a wine room managed by owners that are certified sommelier with a selection of fine Chianti wines from small organic winemakers.

I'm Luca and together with my wife Liana we are the owners of Il Paluffo.
I'm a journalist, MSc. in medical enginering, president and founder of a non-profit company for hearing impaired children, owner of a medical company.
To restore Il Paluffo it took us 6 years and a good dose of hard work. We had a clear idea of what e had in mind: low environmental impact, respect local traditions, high quality of lodging.
It wasn't easy to achieve all these targets in a 15th-century building but we succeeded. Our guests appreciate our philosophy: they love swimming in the bio-pool surrounded by lotus flowers, following cooking classes, tasting our olive oil and local Chianti wines, and relaxing thanks to the calm and meditative atmosphere of Il Paluffo.
