This delightful villa has been thoughtfully renovated to include all of the essentials for a comfortable sojourn in the Tuscan Countryside. From it's beautifully updated tile baths (showers) and full kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine, to all of the little touches that make a house a home, you will feel like you are staying with long lost family. Homemade jam and local honey await your arrival along with a bottle of wine and olive oil produced from the fields surrounding the villa - our way of saying bienvenuto - welcome to our little slice of paradise.
Located down a short private road in an area of Tuscany known for private country homes and expansive views of pastoral countryside dotted with stone houses, woods, vineyards and farm fields, the villa is ideal for a small group or family traveling together.There are three bedrooms and two baths all on a single level. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other two can be either 2 single beds or 1 king bed as you prefer. One bedroom has an en-suite bath and the other two share a hall bath, both with showers. The floors have a warm terracotta patina and the ceilings are hand carved wood-beams. A lovely combination of both old and new throughout.
However, the most breathtaking part of the villa is the view. From the lovely covered terrace adjacent to the entrance to the villa replete with dining table for 6, the fabled Tuscan landscape rolls on for miles and miles disrupted only by an occasional stone home in the distance. In the evening, you can enjoy the view and be treated to the intoxicating scent of lavender and rosemary as you sip a glass of wine or prosecco.
Down a short set of hand carved wooden steps lined with lavender and rosemary on both sides that seem like they have been there for centuries, lies a gorgeous private swimming pool completely surrounded by olive trees and a private vineyard. The view of the countryside from here is extraordinary. And when you tire of hanging around the house (if that is ever possible), you can head out for day trips to places like Florence, Rome, Siena, Assisi, Cortona, Orvieto, Perugia, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Chianti all within an hour's drive from the villa. Or if you prefer, the fast train between Rome and Florence stops in Chiusi just 15 minutes from the villa. There is free parking nearby and you can travel comfortably to Rome, Florence, Siena or cities farther afield. There are several rental car companies within walking distance of the train station so you can also arrive by train quite easily. And lastly, just 5 minutes by car from the villa lies one of the loveliest small villages in Tuscany. With a vibrant central piazza lined with small shops and several outstanding restaurants, you won't have to travel far to eat well and experience the warm communal nature of the Tuscan people.
We strive to make your stay with us a most memorable one and to that end we are happy to help you with your planning and itineraries as well as organize wine tastings, guided tours of the Etruscan tombs nearby, a special meal prepared at the villa or any number of other activities. Please contact us for further information.
We look forward to seeing you in Tuscany!

Patrizia is your host and is a most engaging person. The villa is comfortable, clean, ideally situated and the town of Cetona, which is a 5 minute drive up the hill, is a most friendly and accommodating place to shop for your necessary items. If you want a place to stay for an unforgettable experience in one of the most lovely and famous wine regions in the world you need look no further.
My dream did come true of staying in a villa with the most beautiful view, peaceful, close to two small towns (not many tourist) and close to trains to take us to Siena, Florence and Rome. The villa is clean and very well kept! Patrizia, had a wonderful tart and wine waiting for us, which we enjoyed every morning! We requested dinner for the first night, prepared by Linda was just perfect. Of course we ate on the covered patio-did I mention how amazing the view was? Linda was very helpful with pre-trip questions and suggestions of cities and restaurants to visit.
We loved the Cetona, just a short drive from the Villa, where we visited a wine/cheese shop where the owner gave a a tasting! (There are also some really good restaurants) One week was not enough to enjoy the villa and everything else there is to see! Thanks Linda and Patrizia for making this a trip of a life time for me, my sister and friend.
Stunning views. location, proximity, tastefully built & decorated, engaging customer & property manager service, all supported by a fair pricing structure. Our family of 5 had such a wonderful 2 weeks in this lovely villa, nobody wanted to come home to Australia when our time was up.
La Casetta is absolutely gorgeous with breath taking views - the setting is even better than the photos suggest. Linda clearly takes great pride in the premises as it is tastefully set up. Patrizia, the property manager, also enjoys what she is doing as she looks after things with a real positive, friendly and warm manner. Another highlight is the location of La Casetta with so many lovely places in close proximity to visit. Not sure where to start. We really loved the ambience of our local Cetona and its piazza. Citta Della Pieve which we stared at day after day perched up on the opposite ridge, is like straight out of a movie set. The Labyrith of Porsenna in Chiusi was fascinating. We also had so much fun in Perugia at the Umbria Jazz Festival - also such a beautiful town with a great atmosphere. The wine in Montepulciano was outstanding as was the food and ambience. We also visited the picture book setting of San Gimignano on our way to Pisa where the kids loved climbing the Leaning Tower. Florence's architecture and of course the Statue of David were real highlights and Siena's main piazza is so lovely. Don't know which place, which experience, was our favourite. Lets call it a tie but perhaps just relaxing round the villa's pool next the vineyard, with our favourite antipasto plate and glass of wine was hard to beat.
Thank you so much for letting us stay in La Casetta Linda. As I mentioned to Patrizia we look forward to coming back in the summer of 2017 but we will need to stay longer next time around.
We really enjoyed are stay at La Casetta. Patrizia was an ideal host. She took care of us and filled our every need. She greeted us with a pastry and a bottle of wine. Excellent wine! Working with Linda made our trip to Tuscany a trip to remember. She recommended several smaller great towns that we have never heard of to visit. La Casetta is ideally situated to visit the many hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria. Linda's suggestions for restaurants were great as well as her information print outs about the area and how to return a rental car back to the airport. We will call Linda the next time we visit Tuscany!
The view was breathtaking, right out of a movie. Peaceful and typical Tuscany--rolling hills full of olive trees and vineyards. We enjoyed the privacy and peace and quiet. La Casseta is far enough away from everything but close enough to get there if you desire. We enjoyed being there so much we extended our stay.
We found the property to be beautiful and immaculate. They have a lot of pride in their property and it shows. Pool and views are excellent. The house sleeps 5-6 adults comfortably. One recommendation would be to fit in a comfy armchair or two in either the bedroom(s) and or living space. We spent most of our afternoons relaxing outside after a day of sightseeing, on the patio taking in the view or swimming in the pool.
My birthday dinner prepared for us at the villa by Patricia was absolutely amazing and is one of my most favorite memories. Her attention to detail, pride in the local vegetables and meats and service blew us all away.
Chiusi is a quiet, friendly relaxing town to visit and an easy drive from the villa. The train station at Chiusi is a convenient alternative to driving into Florence or Rome. GPS is so important, but to get to La Casetta Linda’s directions are great. Now getting back to the airport and other points of interest without a GPS is more difficult. Many excellent food/restaurants in nearby villages Several mid evil villages within an hour to hour half drive. Truly something for everyone interests. The more we saw the more we realized there was to see and do. I would return to La Casetta in a heartbeat.
What can be said about this house. The pictures don't do it justice. Patrica is wonderful, very helpfull and available all the time. We stayed for 2weeks, even that was not enough. This house has everything you would ever need. It was like home! The beds were comfortable, grounds were impeccable. The village of Cetona is about a 5 minute drive for the villa where you will find a grocery store, bakery and several little stores. Saturday morning is the market in Cetona fresh vegetables, meats. Try the Sports caffe about
5:30pm. The Villa is even more beautiful in person. We have suggested this place to several friends and relatives and hope to return soon!
