Cooking classes and tours
Paolo loves cooking and thus organizes cooking classes directly at the B&B for guests. Together, you will be able to visit the local market and buy the fresh local products you will then use to prepare the dishes you'll learn to make. Edoardo on the other hand is in charge of organizing with a private driver (in a 7 seater Chrysler Voyager minivan) exclusively for their guests both wine and city tours. In this way, guests will be able to enjoy tasting some of the best Tuscan wines without worrying about driving, but also Siena and the Chianti wine region.
La Paggeria bed and breakfast is located in the Florence hills, a few kilometers from the city. It's in an ideal position from which to visit Florence and its many museums, as well as discover the treasures of the Mugello valley with its International Moto Race Track (just 15 km away) and the Etruscan city of Fiesole, about 7 km far from the relais.
Close to the bed and breakfast guests will find several interesting activities, like golf greens at the Poggio dei Medici Golf Club, horseback riding excursions organized by a nearby riding center, mountain bike guided trips along beautiful tracks or simply bicycles rental.
The b&b is located within easy walking distance (about 500 metres) from the wonderful Pratolino Park and the Villa Demidoff, one of the beautiful Medici villas in the Florence surroundings.

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
