  • A beautiful farmhouse - truly relaxing.

    "We stayed at La Buro for two weeks during July 2014 with our two young girls aged 7 & 4 and had the most relaxing and lovely time in this beautifully furnished and finished home. Elizabeth, the owner, has done an amazing job to restore the farmhouse over the years and has created a calm and sophisticated home whilst also retaining all its local Tuscan charm. Elizabeth was such a help throughout the rental process and during our stay and even made our children's summer (possibly lives so far ;0)) by letting us "borrow" Lola, her dog, for several days. The pool was super for lazy days messing around in the water, with great views out over the valley and the grounds were idyllic. We all enjoyed spotting deer on the tracks in the morning and listening out for the owls calling to each other in the woods at dusk. The location was perfect for exploring local towns such as Cetona, Montepulciano etc as well as ideal to get onto the A1 for longer days away. We even managed to get to Pisa and Florence to provide a little flavour for our children. Everything at this beautiful farmhouse is genuinely as described here and by others - it really is a true gem. We have rented several houses a year across Europe for the past decade and this house has been our favourite and we look forward to being able to go back soon."

  • Heaven! Exceeded all expectations!

    "I just returned (reluctantly) from a month at Gabbianuzzo where I celebrated a big birthday with family and friends! It is the perfect house in which to bring large groups together, but still feel that there is plenty of personal space! Folks did their own thing during the day and gathered around the pool in the afternoon and then later around the farm table for a leisurely meal late at night! From Florence to Siena to the art festival in Certaldo to multiple visits to the butcher in Panzano and, of course, the lovely town of Castellina, we all agreed that the opportunities to explore were endless. I even took my five and four year old grand-children to a ropes course designed for all ages and they had a blast! Just follow Erik's advice on taking advantage of the area and you will not go wrong! I went into town each morning to pick up fresh bread from the bakery and had my Italian lovingly corrected by the friendly woman behind the counter. Erik will give you suggestions on where and what to order for a take-out dinners in Castellina and all food was fabulous! The kitchen is a cook's dream and we all enjoyed assembling the side dishes to accompany the main dish that I picked up each night. I think that all friends and family would agree that Gabbianuzzo and Italy stole a part of our hearts! It's a perfect house and location to bring people together!"

  • La Chiusa + Michael = magic

    "La Chiusa in Chianti is a special place. We have traveled frequently in Italy (family is half-Italian) and are intimate with the country and culture. So it was with some skepticism that we rented a restored Tuscan farmhouse owned and operated by an American from So. Cal. But we were absolutely delighted in every respect. This place is *magic* and having an American host/owner meant the house has probably more welcome perks than we appreciated. Michael and David have transformed this Chianti farmhouse into a delectable spot to relax, retreat and dolce far absolutely niente. David deftly designed patios and multi-level terraces so that the home has way more private retreat nooks and views than a house this size otherwise would. While Google Earth suggested it was near other homes and structures, La Chiusa is absolutely isolated and private: One can walk the house's perimeter naked, free of spectators, 24/7. Michael's olive orchard stretches up and to the west, vineyards roll away north and east. La Chiusa's landscaping is simple, smart, elegant, complete with Wisteria-draped dining pergola and multiple lush herb pots adorning the steps up to the front door (conveniently opening into the kitchen). Our September stay was past prime swimming season and only one of us used the pool. But in summer heat – a joy for sure. We were delighted with the exquisite interior design and decoration at La Chiusa. The home is packed with unique, charming and exceptional antique or vintage finds that we were grateful Michael and David were willing to share with VRBO guests (incl packed shelves of books & maps). La Chiusa is stunningly, fabulously stylish, tasteful, personal, cozy (the living room!) and charming – a real bonus. Finally, a well-deserved pitch for host Michael – a gem. He stocked the kitchen with bread, oil, fruit, wine, sweets and too many other consumables to list here (check before you shop!). He stopped by just about every day, first to welcome us but then to water and weed and do little chores. Anything but intrusive, more like ghostly invisible. Truth is, we wouldn't have minded seeing more of him, to pick his brain about local touring details. Michael did generously provide tips and even offered to personally guide us to a parking lot in Siena close enough to the duomo for an elderly member of our party to make the walk (we figured it out without him). You can't go wrong with Michael and La Chiusa. Superb host and magic place."
