COOKING & WINE TASTING IN TUSCANY 20% DISCOUNT REMAINING WEEKS IN 2014!!

Chiusi Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 10 Bedrooms, 9 Baths, (Sleeps 20-25)

If you are looking for an elegant, well appointed yet comfortable estate for your holiday in Tuscany, this is it! With 10 bedrooms and 9 baths, there is room for everyone and plenty of privacy too. The villa is located midway between Rome and Florence, just 10 minutes from Chiusi and the entrance to the A1 Autostrada. It is also just 10 minutes from the train station, one of only 3 stops made by the Eurostar (fast train) between Rome and Florence. Ideal for day trips to most areas of both Tuscany and Umbria.

The villa is designed with six separate living suites; one with three bedrooms and two baths, two with two bedrooms and two baths , and three with one bedroom and one bath. Each living suite has been newly renovated and is fully furnished with local antiques and comfortable beds that can be either made into a king bed or two single beds as you prefer. The floors are terra cotta and the ceilings are brick and wood beamed and this authentic Tuscan Villa has been completely updated with modern ceramic baths and new kitchens (a total of 7 kitchens!). The living suites are quite spacious giving everyone plenty of privacy yet you are still all together under one roof. Each suite features a living room (with fireplace) and full kitchen with dining area in addition to the bedroom(s) and bath(s).

And the villa offers a unique feature rarely available in other villa rentals; a separate large salon/living room (approximately 40 x 50 feet) with a great fireplace surrounded by comfy sofas and chairs as well as a dining area with a table that seats 20 comfortably, separate bathrooms, and a restaurant-style kitchen great for cooking together, organizing a cooking lesson or just getting together in the evenings to talk over the day. This setup is ideal for family reunions, special birthday or anniversary celebrations and especially weddings. We are very skilled in organizing your special event from flowers to food to music to officiants. Everything is here to create a spectacular Tuscany experience!

In addition to renting the villa, we also offer an Organized Week for your group which generally includes the following:

* A welcome wine and cheese reception

* A Tuscan cooking and pasta making lesson (hosted by a local chef)

* A local wine tasting and tour (in the fall, when possible, we help pick the grapes during the grape harvest!)

* A wine tasting and tour of an historic winery in Montalcino (famous for their Brunello wines)

* A tour of a well-known (hand-made) ceramics producer in Deruta

* A visit to a local fortified village (castle)

* On-site assistance with other itineraries including Florence, Rome, Siena, Assisi, Chianti, Arezzo, Cortona (home of Under the Tuscan Sun), Perugia, Orvieto, Spoletto, all within an hour or so from the villa. Nearby, there is also a newly renovated spa that specializes in thermal water treatments. There, they have the most fabulous thermal pool complete with waterfall and water jets! And, our guests are entitled to a 15% discount to the thermal pool!

Here is what our guests have to say about their experience during our Organized Weeks at the villa:

'This has been one of the best experiences of my life' - Gail J.

'The best vacation ever! It wouldn’t have been so without all of your relationships and special touches. Tuscany is beautiful, but you make it awesome!' - Stacey N.

'This has been a non-stop peace of mind vacation' - Pete T.

'This trip has far surpassed my expectations and I will never forget it'

'You exceeded our expectations, every day and we thank you, we love you and your villa, our home away from home!' - Tom S

'I can't begin to thank you for making our Tuscan adventure so memorable. Your relationship with the local people and knowledge of the area offered us opportunities we'd never experience on our own'

'What a beautiful week to be here (in Tuscany) and have a standoff on the hill with a tractor pulling a cart full of freshly harvested grapes and to see the shepherd herding the sheep down the road, to see the beautiful sunsets and storms in the valley. Thank you for your great advice, directions, wine, cheese and friendship.' Patsy J.

'We all have a meaning in life and yours is giving people like us a journey worth traveling.' Jennifer P.

'This trip has made me realize that we, as Americans, hurry up to relax whereas Italians relax no matter what they're doing. Thank you for letting us live this instead of tour it. The experience has been invaluable and unforgettable. I can't wait to come back. Its true, its easy to fall in love here.' Leslie

'Thanks again, another wonderful trip! We could probably solo by now, but its so much fun to be with you and the groups that your network brings together. We look forward to a three-peat!' Mike M.

The villa is available for rent at all times of the year for groups up to 25. This property is an excellent choice for friends traveling together, families, reunions, corporate events, weddings and more - all will find this a wonderful and relaxing place to call home in a beautiful, well situated, not-so-touristy area of Tuscany. Please let us know if we can answer any questions.

FAMILY FINALLY RETURNS

  • 5 of 5
We needed a home that could handle a family of 16, near a major train station to Rome and Florence, and one that could give us a foundation for memories. This home had it all. Clean, greeted by the owners family (Bea), spacious, privacy with the three separate units, major commercial sized kitchen, pool, outdoors seating area that was covered, spectacular views.
Our family has planned/promised this trip for 50 years. We were not disappointed. This home has everything a family needs. I recommend this home for all.

THE REAL TUSCANY

  • 5 of 5
This property was just right for our group of 17 adults. With our own private quarters and the helpfulness of Beatrice, we had a week that not only lived up to our hopes and dreams, but surpassed every expectation. Immaculately clean, each apartment provided the essentials and then some. The bonus was the extraordinary common areas which allowed us to eat and relax together, not to mention having the ability to lounge by the pool with friends and some of the best wine in the world Day trips to Arezzo, San Gimigiano, Assisi, De Ruta (great ceramics), Volterra and a guide-led tour of Florence were highlights, but coming home was always the best part of the day. Although we experienced world class cuisine at a number of restaurants in Italy, the best meal of the week was the one prepared for us at the villa. You won't want to miss the truffle lasagna! Our trip to a nearby vineyard was the icing on the cake. You could pay more but you could not experience the best of Tuscany anywhere else.

AMAZING BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
I recently spent an amazing week at the villa with family and friends celebrating my 40th birthday and it couldn't have been better! From the time I reserved the villa to the moment we left, Linda and Beatrice, were so helpful and accommodating, all of my guests loved it! No one wanted to leave, and will definitely be back. Knowing it was a birthday celebration, Beatrice went all out on our celebration dinner and decorations, and I couldn't have asked for a better night with the full moon and fields of sunflowers around. The rooms were very comfortable and everyone felt like each suite was there home, and we'd spend the evenings on the patio or in the main living room reliving each day's adventures. To spend a week relaxing at the villa and the pool would've been wonderful enough, but we planned a day of sightseeing in local towns, and a winery tour and tasting which was incredible. None of us had rented a car, but found it easy enough with the taxi services and trains to travel around. Our go to was Leonardo who grew up nearby and knew the villa, and helped us at the train station getting our tickets for us, and was always there for us when we returned. It was truly a spectacular location, very comfortable living, and magical all around. I highly recommend it and will be back!

Absolutely Wonderful!!! Our stay in Chiusi was perfection. The house, location, management, facitilities made for a vacation that will be remembered with fondness. We cannot wait until we can plan another visit to Tuscany. We had five families ranging from 10 years old to 73 years old. We all agreed that staying in Chiusi and doing day trips to Rome and Florence and the surrounding towns is so much better than staying in a big city. We highly recommend renting this property.

THE WEDDING OF OUR DREAMS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this villa for our wedding this past September and had the time of our lives. The villa is beautiful and we fell in love with Cetona and the surrounding area. We were a group of 17, which was just perfect for the space. Everyone was able to relax and enjoy the privacy of their own apartments and we were also able to spend time together in the main dining room and at the outdoor table. Linda was incredible from start to finish to help us plan our wedding and all the activities for the week. She planned our welcome dinner on the evening we arrived, prepared breakfast for us every morning in the main kitchen, arranged for an unforgettable wine tasting excursion/day trip by bus to Montalcino, booked our rehearsal dinner in Cetona and made our wedding dreams come true with all the wedding day details and fabulous evening festivities at the villa. What a party it was. An experience of a lifetime! Everything Bea and Linda did to make our week perfect completely exceeded our expectations in every way. We have beautiful memories of spending time with our nearest and dearest here, and will never forget it.

WONDERFUL VACATION, AWESOME VILLA

  • 5 of 5
19 friends and relatives stayed at the villa for 9 days. I would like to say that it was a most wonderful and memorable experience. The Tuscan landscape is like a fairy tale, the villa is very charming, and Beatrice, the caretaker and cook, is absolutely awesome. She cooked several Italian meals for our group, and we all felt that after a long day of sightseeing it was nice to come back to the villa, sit on the veranda and drink wine while our dinner was being made. The food was out of this world! Beatrice made us feel so welcome and went out of her way to accommodate us. I would highly recommend this villa, especially for a large group. We rented the whole villa and it was a perfect way to vacation and then gather and visit, drink wine, and eat. Loved it! loved it!
