Chiusi villa description

If you are looking for an elegant, well appointed yet comfortable estate for your holiday in Tuscany, this is it! With 10 bedrooms and 9 baths, there is room for everyone and plenty of privacy too. The villa is located midway between Rome and Florence, just 10 minutes from Chiusi and the entrance to the A1 Autostrada. It is also just 10 minutes from the train station, one of only 3 stops made by the Eurostar (fast train) between Rome and Florence. Ideal for day trips to most areas of both Tuscany and Umbria.

The villa is designed with six separate living suites; one with three bedrooms and two baths, two with two bedrooms and two baths , and three with one bedroom and one bath. Each living suite has been newly renovated and is fully furnished with local antiques and comfortable beds that can be either made into a king bed or two single beds as you prefer. The floors are terra cotta and the ceilings are brick and wood beamed and this authentic Tuscan Villa has been completely updated with modern ceramic baths and new kitchens (a total of 7 kitchens!). The living suites are quite spacious giving everyone plenty of privacy yet you are still all together under one roof. Each suite features a living room (with fireplace) and full kitchen with dining area in addition to the bedroom(s) and bath(s).

And the villa offers a unique feature rarely available in other villa rentals; a separate large salon/living room (approximately 40 x 50 feet) with a great fireplace surrounded by comfy sofas and chairs as well as a dining area with a table that seats 20 comfortably, separate bathrooms, and a restaurant-style kitchen great for cooking together, organizing a cooking lesson or just getting together in the evenings to talk over the day. This setup is ideal for family reunions, special birthday or anniversary celebrations and especially weddings. We are very skilled in organizing your special event from flowers to food to music to officiants. Everything is here to create a spectacular Tuscany experience!

In addition to renting the villa, we also offer an Organized Week for your group which generally includes the following:

* A welcome wine and cheese reception
* A Tuscan cooking and pasta making lesson (hosted by a local chef)
* A local wine tasting and tour (in the fall, when possible, we help pick the grapes during the grape harvest!)
* A wine tasting and tour of an historic winery in Montalcino (famous for their Brunello wines)
* A tour of a well-known (hand-made) ceramics producer in Deruta
* A visit to a local fortified village (castle)
* On-site assistance with other itineraries including Florence, Rome, Siena, Assisi, Chianti, Arezzo, Cortona (home of Under the Tuscan Sun), Perugia, Orvieto, Spoletto, all within an hour or so from the villa. Nearby, there is also a newly renovated spa that specializes in thermal water treatments. There, they have the most fabulous thermal pool complete with waterfall and water jets! And, our guests are entitled to a 15% discount to the thermal pool!


Here is what our guests have to say about their experience during our Organized Weeks at the villa:

'This has been one of the best experiences of my life' - Gail J.

'The best vacation ever! It wouldn’t have been so without all of your relationships and special touches. Tuscany is beautiful, but you make it awesome!' - Stacey N.

'This has been a non-stop peace of mind vacation' - Pete T.
'This trip has far surpassed my expectations and I will never forget it'

'You exceeded our expectations, every day and we thank you, we love you and your villa, our home away from home!' - Tom S

'I can't begin to thank you for making our Tuscan adventure so memorable. Your relationship with the local people and knowledge of the area offered us opportunities we'd never experience on our own'

'What a beautiful week to be here (in Tuscany) and have a standoff on the hill with a tractor pulling a cart full of freshly harvested grapes and to see the shepherd herding the sheep down the road, to see the beautiful sunsets and storms in the valley. Thank you for your great advice, directions, wine, cheese and friendship.' Patsy J.

'We all have a meaning in life and yours is giving people like us a journey worth traveling.' Jennifer P.

'This trip has made me realize that we, as Americans, hurry up to relax whereas Italians relax no matter what they're doing. Thank you for letting us live this instead of tour it. The experience has been invaluable and unforgettable. I can't wait to come back. Its true, its easy to fall in love here.' Leslie

'Thanks again, another wonderful trip! We could probably solo by now, but its so much fun to be with you and the groups that your network brings together. We look forward to a three-peat!' Mike M.

The villa is available for rent at all times of the year for groups up to 25. This property is an excellent choice for friends traveling together, families, reunions, corporate events, weddings and more - all will find this a wonderful and relaxing place to call home in a beautiful, well situated, not-so-touristy area of Tuscany. Please let us know if we can answer any questions.
