Relaxing in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Francesca thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us. The apartment was very nice and well stocked with all of the needed amenities. It was truly beautiful to look out onto the green Tuscan landscape. Thank you for meeting us on our arrival to help us settle in. The location was perfect for our vacation visiting the surrounding hill towns. We sincerely hope to come back one day to stay again!

Delightful Porcilaia

  • 5 of 5

It was definitely the highlight of our extensive 3-week Italy tour!

The property was indeed delightful in all aspects, the location, the scenery, the property itself, including the rooms, kitchen facilities, and obviously lovingly decorated premises with tasteful details all over the house. We had picked this property as a hub to go on daily visits to Chianti, Pisa, Florence, etc. it was a great pleasure to go back home for pleasant evenings filled with drinks, antipasti, and barbecued dinner.

The only negative was that there was no bath soap or washing machine detergent when we arrived, which is an inconvenience, especially if you come from abroad and have to immediately rush to town to get supplies.

We will recommend Porcilaia to friends around the globe, and hopefully be back ourselves!

Compliments to the owner Francesca, and to Simone for the impeccable communication...

Grazie mille!

Lovely, roomy apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, well appointed, spacious, very comfortable. It offers fabulous outdoor spaces as well, just as pictured. Extra bonus is the beautiful view of Tuscany. It is located about a 20 minute drive outside Siena, which is a good location if you are driving around Tuscany. However, there are not any resources close by, like a grocery store, coffee shop, or restaurants. The closest grocery store is a ten minute drive and it was small and didn't offer much. If you are looking for peace and quiet and to get away from it all, this is a great place!

Perfect country respite

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so fortunate to find Porcilia. It was a truly delightful, peaceful place after our stays in Rome and Florence. It was extremely clean and well furnished. We especially enjoyed the outside Tuscan grille. The owner was extremely attentive to our requests. There are several restaurants and a good market nearby. I have raved about it to several people and would love to return when the weather is warmer and we could enjoy the pool and outside patio.

a heavenly destination

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay close to Sienna but with the peace of the countryside. The owners were very helpful giving google earth maps to the local supermarket and the house itself was spotless and very well equipped. The surroundings are picture postcard beautiful. The house is well situated to the motorway making it easy to get around. Close to the COOP supermarket was a great restaurant, called the green Frog(?) great food and good value also an ice-cream parlour just across the road. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending La Chiusa. just one question does Tuscany have more stars or is just a bit closer to heaven and therefore easier to see them!
