Luca Savelli is the owner of the large Tenuta di Monteverdi, a family estate bought in 1912 by his grandfather, who turned it from a backwater into a national model-estate for farming. Based in London, Luca visits the estate on a monthly basis spending longer periods there in the summer, though otherwise works as an archaeologist, primarily in Ethiopia and Italy.
Why Luca chose Civitella Paganico
The property is newly renovated (2017) but very much in keeping with both the Renaissance era estate it is on, and also with the style and standard that people expect when staying in Tuscany: in addition, it has lovely views and is very quiet. While the 100m2 apartment is traditional, it was renovated in 2017 with all the comforts one would expect: fully fitted and equipped kitchen, sitting/dining areas, comfortable beds and bed linen, bathroom with shower, clean energy pellet stove, efficient hot water supply, Wifi, TV/DVD, secure etc. The surrounding land, which is a large estate of historical interest with stunning views, is a working estate and has woodland, farmland, olive groves and vineyards, producing a variety of produce (including olive oil which we sell). The location, in the middle of the Maremma, is exceptional, with easy access to many famous cities, including: Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Montelpulciano, Arezzo, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Chianti, and even Rome, while the miles of beaches are within easy short drives. Added to this are numerous activities: walks, riding, national parks, skiing (in winter), natural sulphur baths, golf, polo, tennis and much more, not to mention the fantastic and inexpensive cuisine!

What a wonderful place to stay! Perched on top of a hill, this villa combines old world charm with the conveniences of a modern apartment. The olive groves and vineyards feet from the door are stunning. All I can say is, book this place. You will not be disappointed.
Fabulous location, outstanding host!
Our first visit to Tuscany has been outstanding, with our choice of Casa Chiesa playing a key part in this. The property is full of character and was extremely well equipped with everything we needed during our holiday.
The setting and views are beautiful, with a range of restaurants within a 30minute drive. A car is essential to make the most of the location, with Siena, Montalcino and several beaches all easily reached. Taking the train from Grosseto made a day trip to Rome possible too.
Luca was an amazing host, offering lots of useful information for dining out, and making the most of the area. Luca responded quickly to any queries we had, and a comprehensive information pack was sent out when our booking was made, which helped us to plan for our holiday as we were unfamiliar with the area.
Thank you so much Luca for an amazing stay and for your attentiveness to us as guests. I hope we shall return to Casa Chiesa again before too long.
Thank you and thank you for coming - hope to see you soon again
Great host and suberb views of Tuscan countryside
A comfortable and clean traditional old house and courtyard with wonderful views from the garden and pool with tables to eat outside on the grass terrace. Huge comfortable double bed, best we have experienced on a holiday. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with a modern kitchen etc.
Luca is a brilliant host and any questions were dealt with immediately. He will book meals at restauants for you and help with any problems - we had car difficulties at the end of the stay and he was amazing, even giving us some food when we couldn't get to the shops.
The location is also very good as you can get to the seaside at Castiglione in around 45 mins which also has an old town and castle to explore, lovely spot - we went there twice - and it has a large sandy beach almost deserted in September. You can get to Siena and and other old hilltop Tuscan towns like Montalcino in the other direction under an hour. We had 2 very pleasant days at the beach and the other days touring round the towns or just sitting around. Definitely recommended.
Thank you Brenda! Best wishes, Luca
Tuscany Charm - Outstanding!
Four of us (2 couples) stayed at the beautiful Casa Chiesa for 3 nights and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The location is perfect with easy access to numerous sites / activities, Montalcino, Sienna, etc. The accommodations were perfect with a wonderful blend of old world charm (the cottage itself) with brand new features / amenities (new cabinets, kitchen appliances, utensils, etc.) . The grounds are magnificent allowing us to take long walks in the morning as we enjoyed the beautiful Tuscany landscape. Luca was extremely kind, generous and helpful ensuring we had a great time on our first trip to Tuscany. He helped make reservations, offered great tips on places to go / see and made our trip very relaxing. The swimming pool was very refreshing first thing in the am, a great way to start the day. I highly recommend this property and plan to return in the future!
Thank you for coming !
Truly stunning and would highly recommend
We loved everything about this place! Beautiful views, very comfortable stay and could not fault anything. Luca was very welcoming and gave great
recommendations of places to visit. Would deffinalty look at returning!
Thank you !
The Maremma is a truly beautiful vast area, and not very well known, yet it offers so much in culture, cuisine, sea, activities and wine. Casa Chiesa is really well placed to enjoy all of these things, as well as for the larger areas of Tuscany/Umbria/Northern Lazio.
Other points to consider:
Check In AFTER 1600, Check Out is BY 1000.
We strongly recommend you have a car, as getting around for site-seeing or shopping without one is difficult. That said, 30 mins away is the mainline station of Grosseto (Naples-Rome-Grosseto-Pisa), and 5 mins away is the local station of Paganico (Grosseto-Siena line). Paganico is also on the Grosseto-Siena-Florence bus route.
