Lovely villa, superb gardens and views
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely villa, superb gardens and views. Made good use of the pool on hot days! The owner was very welcoming and gave us some good advice regarding local restaurants and supermarkets, we look forward to returning in the not too distant future. Best regards, Claude
We chose La Chianina for a romantic getaway for 2 and were not disappointed. The cottage is lovely inside and out, grounds and garden well kept, and pool large and to ourselves. The owners were discreet yet helpful. its in a lovely location and handy for touring around but we were quite lazy and really enjoyed relaxing and a much earned break.
Absolutely wonderful vacation!
We had an absolutely wonderful vacation at La Chianina. The house and the pool was as we expected judging from the pictures on your website - and then some. Luciano, our landlord, was the perfect host and showed us the utmost hospitality. So, we could not be more satisfied and the service provided by La Bella Toscana was very good as usual.
Sweet holiday for two
Elegant, secluded and comfortable are the words. This cottage offered us a real relaxing holiday in Italy and we can’t wait to do this again. Clean and even more beautiful in living colors than in pictures, La Chianina was such a great experience. It’s located in the countryside (which was perfect, as we wanted to run away from traffic and smog) , it has a great garden and a fantastic pool you can relax in. Something that we really appreciated was the beamed ceiling in the bedroom. Made everything even more romantic.
A big thank you to La bella Toscana for making this possible and to the owner, who hosted us with kindness.

This cottage is perfect if you intended to celebrate anniversaries or just to experience a romantic summer escape because La Chianina is just awesome. Secluded, immersed in country side, comfortable and elegant, clean and fully furnished with real taste. The fireplace is just a treat and both garden and private pool offer the chance to relax, sunbath or, in the evening, dine al fresco with your better half. Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our summer here and we can’t help doing it again, as soon as possible.
