I looked for months for a villa to rent and was so happy when I came across Borgo La Chuisa and the Fienile unit. Simone (the manager) was so easy to deal with and gave me so much information before I committed to rent. This was a special trip for me, my daughter, my niece, and friend. Upon arriving, we were in awe driving up the road to this beautiful property. The girls could not believe this was where we were staying. We each had our own room with our own bathroom. And the views were so stunning. The whole place was spotless and just beautiful. I had arranged for a welcome dinner from Simone prior to arriving and Francesca, the owner of the property, cooked for us our first night and it was absolutely delicious. We could not believe we were not in a restaurant. The food, the wine, the dessert, were all amazing. Staying here was the highlight of our whole Italy trip and we all can't wait to come back some day! Thank you Simone and Francesca. You made my birthday trip Perfect!!
Absolutely perfect. I want to live there. Great location and incredible home.
Our first impression of the villa was breathtaking! And then it just got better! The kitchen was well appointed, furniture very comfortable and bathrooms outstanding. Everyone was comfortable in the ensuite bedrooms and it was nice to have space to spread out. We cooked about half our meals and found local restaurants for the other days while seeing the other small towns. Then there was the outside space which was delightful for cocktail hour!
We very much enjoyed our stay. Spent four nights at the villa, great location close to Siena, Florence and the Chianti region. Villa was very elegant with great views of the area - more beautiful in person. We used the fireplace most nights. There is a grocery nearby with the basics for a comfortable stay. Our host was gracious and available to assist as requested. Would recommend and hope to come back!
What a great vacation! There were four couples plus our driver. All of the couples stayed upstairs and our driver was in the downstairs bedroom. The unit was advertised as some bedrooms as doubles and some as twins. However, Francesca graciously converted all four of the upstairs bedrooms into doubles. We did have a red wine "accident" (long story) which caused some damage to the paint, but the deduction from our damage deposit was very reasonable. We absolutely would recommend this property to friends and family.
Simone e Erica foram fantástico. A casa com uma paisagem maravilhosa. Tudo limpo e correto. Voltaremos sem duvida. Aconselho a todos que queiram passar uma semana inesquecível.
