Overview

Sarteano Villa Rental Photos and Description

A child-orientated villa for 8 that can’t fail to please!

If you are looking for a comfortable, family house combining genuine Italian character with history and location you’ve just found it! Villa Moscatelli, blissfully peaceful and quiet, dates from the 1300s is a place to be comfortably at ease in - there’s plenty of space for the kids and the heady perfumes of the sun-warmed lavender and the rose bushes will restore the weariest wage slave. This is a homely villa and just a bit scuffed around it’s elegant, child-friendly edges. You’ll revel in the genuine Italian character of this authentic Tuscan home. If you are looking for a pristine-perfect house, then Villa Moscatelli will not suit. If you are looking for handsome surroundings with a well lived-in feel, then it will delight you! The sitting room, with its squashy sofa and arm chairs, is blissfully cool in summer and deliciously enticing with a roaring log fire when it’s chilly. For a family holiday in beautiful Tuscan surroundings, with the sights of lovely Umbria on your doorstep.

This is a house on 3 floors, with a wide spiral staircase in the high ceilinged main entrance. Scamper up the stairs to the first floor and you’ll find the master bedroom with its large en suite bathroom. Opposite, there’s the kids room which sleeps 4 and has its own en suite bathroom too. A door on this floor opens directly onto the large, entirely private garden, which offers stunningly wide views across the hills, with picturesque Cetona and Città della Pieve in the distance. Carrying on up the stairs, you come to the loft, where there’s a bathroom (with a rather low ceiling) and your choice between a spacious double bedroom or a pretty, low ceilinged room with twin beds. Given the Italian love affair with eating well, you won’t be surprised to hear the sun-filled kitchen at Villa Moscatelli has an oversize electric oven, 5 gas hobs (with a safety guard to keep little fingers safely at bay), a dishwasher and plenty of fridge and freezer space for ample supplies of delicious Italian ice cream and well chilled drinks for the grown ups. The kitchen is right next door to that shady outdoor table. And, in line with what’s important in an Italian home, you’ll find the owners have created a splendid children’s bedroom, complete with TV, its own en suite bathroom and a veritable mountain of toys for your kids to enjoy. And there’s a large, well supervised, open air public swimming pool and 2 tennis courts only 5 minutes drive away, so you can relax on that front too!

An Authentic Italian Villa Experience - PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, along with two close friends, stayed for one week at Villa Moscatelli in Early June 2013. We adored this villa and its ancient charms. It felt like we had stepped back in time yet with all the comforts of the 21st century.

The villa’s housekeeper, Gabriella was so kind. She even met us at the Chiusi train station to help us with our luggage, and waited with us as we picked up our rental car. Upon arrival at the villa, Gabriella showed us around the entire villa explaining the outside lights for al fresco dining, trash drop-off, etc.

The panoramic views of the valley below from the outside covered terrace were truly magnificent! When not exploring the towns of Tuscany and Umbria, we spent our time outdoors—the views of the valley and garden were spectacular. We loved the privacy the villa offered. It was truly a home away from home. We found it difficult to leave this little piece of heaven yet managed to visit a few towns such as Montelpulciano, Assisi, Perugia, Cortona (all about an hour away). We took a cooking class in a little town above Cortona—magnificent! We also visited the neighboring towns of Citta della Pieve and Cetona. We visited Cetona several times, because of its proximity to the villa, and we fell in love with this little town. During one of our visits to Cetona, the piazza was decorated with colorful flower-petals, and the design looked to be a tiled floor with a chalice, the madonna, Holy cross, etc. The details were intricate and stunningly beautiful. While having lunch in the piazza, we witnessed a communion procession, and what appeared to be the entire community following suit. Afterwards, a big celebration in the town’s piazza. We felt truly blessed to have witnessed this holy event. Villa Moscatelli is rustic and its 15th century charm is seen everywhere—simply perfect! It was well stocked and had everything one would need to enjoy a Tuscan holiday. The wireless internet was perfect even from the outside areas. We could have seen more Tuscan towns, but preferred to spend more time relaxing and enjoying the villa itself. We thoroughly enjoyed the Italian lifestyle.

The owner, Giada, was a pleasure to work with during the booking process. She was so helpful and very quick to respond to questions. Giada is lovely person, and we look forward to visiting Villa Moscatelli again some day.

VILLA MOSCATELLI

  • 4 of 5

Villa Moscatelli è un bellissimo podere immerso nella magnifica campagna toscana. La magnifica vista che si può ammirare dal giardino privato del cascinale è senza ombra di dubbio il punto forte della villa. La villa è disposta su tre piani per 10 posti letto cosa che permette anche a grandi comitive un perfetto soggiorno nella quiete e relax più totale che solo posti come questo possono offrire. La casa è posta vicino a molti centri abitati quali Sarteano e la bellissima Cetona e non dista cosi tanto da posti altrettanto eccezionali quali Pienza e Montepulciano nel caso si vogliano fare gite fuori porta. La casa in se è provvista di tutti i confort; televisione ( provvista di un numero considerevole di canali da tutto il mondo), rete Wi-fi, cucina abitabile provvista di tutti i comfort (anche di lavastoviglie) e di un bellissimo e caratteristico camino/focolare. Unica nota "negativa" se vogliamo chiamarla cosi è l' umidità specialmente nelle camere all' ultimo piano; verrà subita soprattutto se si decide di soggiornare nei periodi invernali ma basta procurarsi una stufetta e il gioco è fatto.

Owner's Response: Grazie per la bella recensione e grazie anche per essere ritornati per il secondo Capodanno di fila! Moscatelli è un podere del '500 e l'ultimo piano, il terzo, è stato ricavato successivamente. Quella che chiami umidità all'ultimo piano in realtà è freddo, infatti mentre in estate le grandi mura fanno si che il podere è sempre fresco, a Capodanno quando c'eravate voi si sta molto bene intorno al fuoco nel salone ma hai piani alti bisogna tenere acceso il termosifone e possibilmente anche la borsa dell'acqua calda....altrimenti brrrr!

Panorama dei fiori

  • 5 of 5

Moscatelli is a great place to have a relaxed holiday. It is a characteristic house on the way from Sarteano to the village of Cetona, with a breathtaking panorama on the Val di Chiana, Citta della Pieve and Chiusi on the opposite hills. Renovated, with a lot of authentic elements, on the basis of a 15th century farm house. Around the house there is a huge and very beautiful well maintained garden, with a lot of flowers and herbs, slowly integrating in the surrounding landscape with meadows, woods and olive tree areas. If you are lucky you can meet dear in the early hours. Anyway you will meet the gardener, often with his brother, very nice people that definitely have the pleasure of life in their eyes.

The house itself is fantastic, with a great Tuscan colorful kitchen, with great equipment. A stylish living room, with TV (600 choices) and very good WIFI, all necessary facilities. Bedrooms are very nice, with 4 bathrooms in total. The house is very clean and can be kept cool due to thick walls and shutters. We really liked the veranda outside, with a granite table, to enjoy good meals and wine with a fantastic panorama. The housekeeper Gabriella can provide a great dinner for a reasonable price (with for instance great Apple pie, fantastic lasagna, wonderful chicken, incredible Tiramisu). A good chair is enough to enjoy a great holiday with the fantastic panorama. There is no pool, but we did not miss it. In the nearby village of Sarteano you will find a great public pool. Here, and in Cetona, there are great restaurants in all price categories. Sarteano has nice facilities, like a great small theater, a mini scala near the central piazza. There are numerous cultural events culminating in the local palio, the Giostra dei Saracini on the 15th of August. Lots of possibilities in the surrounding areas, related to the Val di Chiana and the Val d' Orcia. From Chiusi Scalo you can take the intercity train to Rome and Florence.

We enjoyed our week at Moscatelli so much that we made a reservation for next year.

Sarteano is a busy village near Siena. It offers you over half a dozen eateries as well as banks, bars and all the shops you could need. You can drive there or hop on a bus or walk (takes 15 minutes from the villa). You’re deep in the fairy tale landscape of Tuscany, but handily placed for shopping, eating out or sightseeing. Villa Moscatelli is roughly an hour’s drive from the medieval glories of picture perfect Siena, the charms of Etruscan Arezzo, and the Umbrian hill-top town town of Orvieto (justly famous for its ornate cathedral and its fulsome white wines). Closer to home, a 30 minute drive to the East will get you to the the cute little ferry boats of Lake Trasimeno to putter you around Italy’s 4th largest lake - take a picnic, explore the little islands and swim from the tiny beaches! 30 minutes to the West you’ll find the world class red wines and winding streets of atmospheric Montepulciano to tempt you from your sunbed. If you want to visit Florence or Rome for a day, why not let the train take the strain? From Chiusi train station - only 14 km from your garden - you can be in Rome or Florence well within a couple of hours on Italy’s cheap and efficient trains (and you won’t be worrying about city driving or the nightmare of finding a parking space!).
