Enjoy breakfast every morning on the panoramic covered terrace with a breathtaking view over the hills of Volterra. Breakfast at Il Palagetto is not just a simple buffet, it is a real ode to abundance: croissant, cakes, tarts, fruit juices, yoghurts, coffee, milk, cold meats, cheese, eggs, white bread and everything you may need for a great start to the day.
We also offer gluten-free food for guests suffering from gluten intolerance. Please let us know your dietary requirements at the time of booking or when checking in so that we have enough time to prepare for your needs.
Our 20 x 10 metre swimming pool is without doubt one of our strong points. It has a graduated depth (from 110 cm to 170 cm), making it suitable for all users, is directly accessible from the rooms and has an idyllic view of the hills of Volterra and San Gimignano.
Decorated in mosaic tiles, it has an infinity edge over which water cascades onto exposed stone, transporting swimmers into a dimension of timeless, infinite space. “Tuscany People” rates it as one of the six most beautiful panoramic swimming pools in the whole of Tuscany.
Our swimming pool opens on 01 June
Stay with us for both lunch and dinner
The gastronomic experience offered by Il Palagetto includes a wide selection of traditional Tuscan dishes, reinterpreted by our chef with a touch of imagination. Carefully selected raw ingredients sourced from a “short supply chain”, that is to say products purchased directly from local farms, are a distinguishing feature of our dishes.
The restaurant area attached to Il Palagetto is open every day for both lunch and dinner and has a panoramic terrace with a view over the Tuscan hills of Volterra.
Il Palagetto also offers a mountain bike and electric bike hire service.
The bikes are available to those wishing to experience the emotions of uphill or downhill cycling on a mountain bike for the first time, but also for trained cyclists with a good technical preparation, who will be free to explore the most beautiful places in Volterra and San Gimignano.
Finally, for those who love cycling holidays, we also offer a well-equipped space that can be used as a bike workshop for checking your bike is in tip-top condition before setting off for the day.
Would you like to go on holiday without having to leave your four-legged friend behind?
At Il Palagetto, we welcome small pets at a cost of €10.00 per day. Your four-legged friends will be free to enjoy the Tuscan countryside, with the exception of just a few places where they are not allowed access: common areas, the restaurant and the swimming pool.
We also offer other services for your pets (available at an extra charge), such as a pet blanket or welcome bone.
If you travel by car, you can park at our relais hotel in Volterra: we have a large covered car park with video surveillance offering plenty of free parking spaces.
Il Palagetto offers guests a convenient and exclusive transfer service: subject to agreement, we can arrange transfers according to your needs, such as transfers to/from Florence, Pisa or Rome airports or the train stations in Florence, Pisa, Pontedera and Poggibonsi.

We visited this evening and had one of the most amazing meals we have had during our stay in Italy. The food was of the highest quality, service friendly and sincere, and the view was very romantic looking over the rolling hills of Tuscany toward the walled historic town of Volterra. The wine was exceptional and the meal exceptional value￼
Stunning location and great food
Stayed for one night last week. Location is beautiful - postcard Tuscan rolling hills. Sat outside for a pre-dinner with a fabulous local wine looking out at the sunset. Great dinner in the restaurant -Tuscan traditional dishes including wild boar.
A delightful stay. Loved the location and food
Fantastic location with wonderful views. Lovely infinity pool. Fresh local cuisine.
