Touristic itineraries

The Agritourism Le Palaie is located in a strategic position almost mid-way between Pisa and Florence; Tuscan cities rich in history. It is just 45 kilometres from Pisa, while Florence is 74 kilometres away. Siena is at a distance of 87 kilometres, San Gimignano, 42, and Volterra 33km. The area has many attractive small medieval towns to visit: Peccioli, Lajatico, Lari and Buti. In summer these borghi are the venues for a stream of festivals that re-evoke local traditions like the palio horse race in Buti for which preparations are made all year round, and the numerous food festivals (called sagre) with delicious local dishes, music festivals and events in costume.

Special Events

Le Palaie is the perfect venue for ceremonies and to celebrate special occasions to store in your family album: weddings, anniversaries, baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, and birthdays. In addition, we can arrange lunches, dinners private tastings, business, and sports events.

Le Palaie is also the perfect place to celebrate love amid the vivid brushstrokes of the Tuscan countryside, where time seems to have stood still between the rows of the vines. This is the idyllic setting to say the most important “I do” in one’s life, together with family and friends. The estate can satisfy tailor-made solutions, depending on the bride and groom’s desires, hosting up to 250 guests out in the open in Spring and Summer and moving to the cellar and cask room in the colder months.

Events for children

Le Palaie also hosts events for children, for example readings of fairy tales and stories or exploratory walks in the vineyards continuing the tradition started by the founder Nino Angelo Caponi who chose this corner of the Tuscan countryside to retire and enjoy his time with his children.

Wellness and Sport

Set in the green Le Palaie, is the ideal place for yoga and events aimed at wellbeing and sport, to restore mind, body and spirit. In recent years there have been a number of yoga days with lessons on the terrace that overlooks the sun-kissed Val d'Era followed by a tour of the cellar. The last yoga day was on 25th June 2022. In May 2022 Le Palaie agritourism hosted our latest e-bike event; as part of our drive for sustainable tourism - it also included a wine-tasting in our cellar.

The capital of spinning

For three days in the first week of May 2022, Le Palaie was the international Spinning Capital, hosting the IMD2022 event  dedicated to the love for sport, nature and music.
The 6th, 7th and 8th May were marked by slow rhythms to give space to emotions, colours and flavours that only direct contact with nature can inspire. Participants took part in meditation, went for walks and relaxed around the pool, there were excursions in the vineyards and the countryside around the agritourism nicely rounded off with a wine-tasting in the cellar.
