It is a wonderful building and the rooms are lovely. Unfortunately the bar across the narrow road is very loud and it opens until everyone has gone home! This can be + 2am. The people from the bar are very friendly but it is used by the locals from a large surrounding area who dont seem to need sleep. They arrive on motorbikes and in fast cars.
Then you have two Bell Towers. These chime on the 1/2 hour and hour 24/7.
The Village is lovely and the people friendly.

We spent 2 nights at the Antica Dimora Leones with our 2 children aged 11 and 9. The bedrooms are very spacious and full of character whilst the bathrooms are modern. Everywhere in the hotel was spotless and we were made to feel at home by Violetta, who looked after us the whole time we were there. The hotel was very quiet - we were the only ones staying and so we had the run of the whole place to ourselves! Palaia is a quiet hilltop village but close enough to Pisa, San Gimignano etc.. We ate in the village both nights, once in the restaurant down the road and once at the pizzeria. The children enjoyed a gelato at the gelateria. We throughly recommend this hotel B&B if you want to see the real Italy.

My husband and I both felt that this property was the best B&B of our trip. Violeta and Cecillia were there during our stay and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful.

The house is divine, full of charm and brimming with antiques. Our room was large with a modern ensuite and had pretty views of the surrounding hillside. The breakfast room is lovely also, with large doors that open to a quite steeped street. Very good quality breakfast served - fresh meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries and cakes.

Palaia is a quiet town, with terrific views. There are 2 bars, a restaurant, a pizza take-away and a gelateria. We enjoyed the bar nearest the B&B and we had a fabulous meal at Antica Pharmacia. The gelato was very good too!

If you are looking for quality accommodation in a quiet hilltop town, this is it. We simply had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Will definitely return!

We just came back from spending three wonderful days at Antica Dimora Leones. As a Hotel Manager in Barcelona, I looked at several properties before deciding to book this one. The hotel is amazing, with a lot of attention to detail and a beautiful decor. Our room was spotless, with wonderful views of Palaia and its surroundings. Breakfast was delightful, with homemade pastries and jam (we even stayed in the kitchen with Manu while she was baking) and capuccinos prepared by Andrea himself. We were able to enjoy the garden, the reading room, and even the kitchen table for our evening "wine and cheese" dinners. Although Palaia is not right in the center of Tuscany, it is only an hour-drive from the most important sites, and the peacefulness of the town and the incredible hotel are worth the drive. Thank you to Andrea, Manu, Cecilia and Violeta for making this special celebration an unforgettable experience!

The accommodation was beautiful, with all rooms we saw being spacious
and individually decorated. All rooms in the house were furnished in typical tuscan style and spotlessley clean. Your hosts Andrea and Manuela are very warm and hospitable people who obviously have taken a pride in the renovation works and welcome all guests into their home. The garden is a very peaceful place in which to sit and read or simply relax after a hectic day exploring the surrounding areas. The jacuzzi area is great to return to early evening when you are tired from seeing the many sights in Tuscany, a great way to unwind.
We felt that it is really necessary to have a car and found that there never seemed to be any problem in finding a car parking space in Palaia. We ordered an evening meal during our stay and this was simply outstanding and not expensive as wine was included in the price. Beautifully prepared food, approximately 6 courses in total, and served in a private dining area.

Palaia is a delightful, away from the madding crowd, village. There is a small but lively pub nearby, two further eating venues as well as a couple of bars where the locals have beverages and pass the day away. Recommendation would be to book a day or so in advance for the restaurants as they both got fairly full. Once back in Palaia for the evening there is sufficient venues so no necessity to drive. Definitely a place to return to and recommend to friends. Idyllic setting and fabulous hosts. We will be returning.
