We spent a week in the villa. Two families with small kids. The house was spacious, the garden great and Raffaelo took good care of us bringing fresh vegetable each day. The pool is clean and the view is breathtaking. Supermarket is 5 minuets away. One to two hours drive to all major places in Tuscany.

Lovely week in the Tuscan countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Il Biancospino (finally looked it up--The Hawthorn in English) was wonderful for so many reasons--the incredible beauty of Tuscany, fascinating hill towns, our entire family being together for the week--but Mr. Raffaele's hospitality and the farmhouse were chief among them. First of all, the location is great. It has a panoramic view of the area and feels private and remote, yet is only 3 km from Chianciano and the old town (not to mention a very good supermarket, Coop). The farmhouse was spacious and comfortable, and it was so nice to have the private pool at which to relax and refresh. It is also clearly a property that is still worked--Mr. Raffaele has olive trees, an extensive garden, and keeps bees--and while that aspect of it was a bit unexpected when we first arrived, we soon found it to be part of the comfort and charm of the place. And Mr. Raffaele himself was wonderful--he greeted us with a bottle of prosecco, beer, and some of his own olive oil, arranged to have Averino, a fantastic chef, prepare two meals for us, and set up a wine tasting at La Fontanelle in Chianciano through his friend Hector. He was attentive and responsive to our needs during the week without being intrusive. It was a great week--we highly recommend the property!

Yes you can live the dream for a while!

  • 5 of 5

It's always difficult in reviews for places like Biancospino to set aside skepticism from readers that it's not a genuine account from someone genuinely thrilled and grateful for the experience.

Every cliche about being in the center of everything one would want to see in Tuscany holds true. As does every cliche about being perfectly happy to just sit and stay in the charming house in a stunning setting.

I would say - or we two would say, rather - that the experience of a charming, immaculately-renovated farmhouse, in a seems-like-fiction-beautiful setting, in combination of the warm welcome from owner Raffaele (including his own olive oil and Chianti, literally from across the street) and the luxury of every amenity from WiFi to The Big Pool is one that no visitor would ever forget. In the best possible way that travel can transform mood and thinking. No overstatement.

Absolute Tuscan gem. Our second visit previously in 2013. Set in breathtaking scenery. Every modern convenience. Wifi in house and extended to garden and pool. Satellite TV , excellent sound system, X box... Raphael visited daily with fresh produce from his holding, beautiful tomatoes, lettuce, olive oil, etc.. Only 2 hours from Rome airports, a car is essential... 6 mins from the historic Chianciano terme and 20 mins from the magnificent Montepulciano. Huge selection of taverna's and restaurants within 20 mins drive. Must sees....Montepulciano, Sienna (60 mins drive), Orvieto and Castiglione Del Lago.
