The IGP Mugello Chestnut

The IGP Mugello Chestnut, the fruit of our wonderful chestnut woods, was for many years the protagonist of an authentic CIVILIZATION of the CHESTNUT, still capable of fascinating travellers on the look for ancient traditions and culture lovers.


Still cultivated with techniques from the past centuries, without any pesticides or chemical fertilizers, this is one of the most genuine products you can find and a highly-sought after fruit, on a global scale.

Visit us in October, to harvest and taste the chestnuts

During the month of October, harvest time, the Restaurant of the Europa Hotel dedicates an entire food & entertainment package to this fruit: something worth experiencing and tasting!


With a single chestnut harvest package, you can participate in the harvest, without quantity limits, in a suggestive chestnut wood managed by the hotel (and near the Town) and, after the harvest, you can enjoy a typical menu in our structure.


Due to organizational reasons, this offer is valid for groups of at least 20 people: start telling your friends!

Autumn festivals in Palazzuolo

Also keep in mind that on Sundays during the month of October, Palazzuolo hosts the Chestnut and forest fruits festival, while the nearby town of Marradi welcomes a festival dedicated to a different variety of chestnuts.
