A great place

  • 5 of 5

We were a big family of 9 adults on holiday and looked for a place within reasonable distance to Rome airport and to the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. This place was exactly in the right location. It is a 2 hour drive from the airport and 1.5 hours from Florence and Sienna. Also the old town of Chiusi is very nice and only 10 minute drive away.

We really loved the opportunity to sit outside on the porch for breakfast and dinner. The bedrooms are also very pleasant and the bathrooms are in an excellent condition. There is a big mall 5 minutes drive with a big supermarket that had everything we needed during the stay.

Flaminia was an excellent host - she welcomed us with cheese, ham and fresh melons and throughout the stay was available for the minor issues we had. She also provided lots of information on where to go and what to do.

There is some room for improvement. the main drawback has to do with the fact that we stayed in August. It was very hot outside, and inside it was not always comfortable. there are a couple of ventilators but perhaps add one for each bedroom? having said that I am sure that in milder seasons this isn't be a problem. Secondly, while the kitchen is well-equipped with an oven, a dish washer and everything else, all work fine, some of the utensils (like a couple of old pans, knives, the coffee machine) could be replaced to give the kitchen a fresher look.

all in all, its a great place with very good price/quality ratio.

Full of character

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful, old family home. The property is very well equipped with everything you need, especially in the kitchen. It is full of character with all kinds of interesting pictures and ornaments. No trouble is too much for the owner who looked after us splendidly, even teaching us how to make fresh pasta. The views are magnificent and the local area offers much to do and see. Our favourites were Montepulciano and Assissi.

The only slight drawback to the whole experience was the fact that it was extremely hot (it reached 40 degrees) and we had difficulty sleeping. There was only one working fan and no air conditioning. Not that I am a person who normally feels in need of AC and I think it can spoil the look/feel of a place but I must admit I wished for it, some of those nights!

Beautiful, relaxing property.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four weeks here in June, 2014 and could not have been happier. Flaminia went out of her way to make us feel comfortable, and took us on a tour of Chiusi Scalo to show us which shops she recommended for cheese, meats and wine. Make sure you get some of the "box" wine from her friend across the street from her store. It's very good wine and at a bargain price. During our time there the fireflies were in the bushes so every night looked like Christmas. We would sit on the veranda and enjoy the view in the evenings, as well as enjoying some great Tuscan wines. The villa is a great location for day trips to the numerous mountain towns in the region. We saw 26 in our time there.

The villa is only 1 kilometer from the Pam store (food, wine, beer, sundries) and the mini mall which has numerous stores. There is a gas station there, also.
