My husband and I choose to stay at Paneretta because of the location amidst the vineyards, close to Florence, and the cooking classes offered. It turned out to be the right place for us to stay! We were welcomed by the owners Patrizia and Massimo and really felt relaxed right away. The cooking class was terrific; we not only learned...

The terrific reviews that you read about Patrizia and Massimo's cooking lessons at Castello Della Paneretta are so true but the experience itself has to be lived to be believed. We drove to this rustic farmhouse from our villa in San Quirico with high expectations and we were not disappointed. Our hosts immediately engaged with our 10 year old daughter...

The day we spent with Patrizia and Massimo was the highlight of a two week stay in the Chianti area of Tuscany. We had marvelous food and many laughs as we learned about the "Italian way" from Patrizia. We came home with recipes, wonderful memories of great food and the feeling that we had a peak into a true Italian...

My husband and I did the cooking day with Patrizia and Massimo and it was the highlight of our time in Tuscany. We learned to make homemade biscotti, ravioli, and stuffed pork loin, bruscetta, a vegetable side dish. My husband swears it was the best meal we had the whole 3 weeks we were in Italy! Patrizia and Massimo are...

To say that our cooking class with Patrizia and Massimo during our honeymoon trip to Italy taught us to cook would be an understatement. We learned to cook biscotti, ravioli, etc... It was fantastic fun, so delicious, and very relaxing. We also learned about how health, relationships and happiness can all be strengthened by being intentional about what we eat,...

This was our first stop in a 2-week tour of Tuscany. The view from the apartment down the road from the main house was stunning. Drawbacks were the sound of a chainsaw and only one of three showers in our communal apartment worked beyond a trickle of hot or a flood of ice cold water. You'll need to bring your...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Paneretta during our first trip to Italy. I cannot imagine experiencing Tuscany any other way. Massimo and Patrizia were fantastic hosts in every sense.

We were here for the cooking class only. It was one of my favorite days in Tuscany.

If you're looking for the REAL Italy this country accommodation is it! Situated in the heart of rural, non-commercial Tuscany, your stone farmhouse looks out over serene rolling hills, iconic vineyards and neighboring hill towns. Even better, your hosts -- the energetic and irresistible Patrizia, and her kind husband Massimo -- will emerge you into the Italian culture faster than...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The holiday farm is a part of old time Tuscany still unspoilt and rich in tradition, which is known as the Chianti Classico region. It is immersed among vineyards and olive-trees, medieval towns and art cities like Florence, Siena, San Gimignano. In the evening you can dine at a hospitable typical Tuscan restaurant, where you can taste the produce of the farm sitting at a long table in an atmosphere of friendly conviviality. ... more   less

“We had one spacious bedroom with normally shared living accommodation with another bedroom, except that it was all ours because no-one occupied the other bedroom so loads of space to ourselves with amazing views from all angles.”
