Spend a few hours at Trudie and Sting’s Il Palagio. Together they have created an amazing estate.
|Depart Florence via the A1 toward Rome and in less than 45 minutes, you’ll take the exit for Figline Valdarno. The beautiful villa and guest houses are available for rent. A week at Il Palagio just might be the vacation of a lifetime!|
|From the first taste of Il Palagio, we were quite entranced by this excellent production. The artisans have worked carefully to tend the trees and craft a very good certified-organic olive oil.|
The olives, harvested at the end of October are a blend of Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino.
Recommended pairings include Tuscan favorites, such as bistecca, chick pea soup, carpaccio with porcini mushrooms, grilled radicchio, lentil soup, artichoke pasta dishes, oven-baked fish, red meat, and firm-textured cheeses.
