About Claudia Pirazzi
We live every summer there and eventually restored it and refurbished it up to modern comfort and wheelchair accessibility. We have a dog and noticed how difficult it is to get an accomodation which is perfect for elderly persons, children and dogs. So we thought that we can offer this and share it with others. We go there also on weekends and have equipped it with WiFi and TV.
Claudia Pirazzi purchased this House in 1896
Why Claudia Pirazzi chose Civitella in Val di Chiana
Because it is in the family since a long time and the place is still magic and very much our home not a business vacation rental.
What makes this House unique
Infinity pool, wheel chair drive and extra suite for wheelchair-bound guests, huge garden and the best thing is the Loggia, we live there even when it rains. We enjoy a fire in the open fireplace in the Loggia. It is huge and cozy at the same time, gives you a sense of space and living in the nature. Being attached to the Small medieval village of Oliveto you feel never isolated. It is safe and secure.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We have stayed in many vacation rentals and have also owned and managed multiple homes ourselves. We truly enjoyed this home very much. It was very well equipped, and clean. The property is very private with large yard and stunning view. We would love to come back.
thank you for having taken the time to write a nice review for us.
We thank you that you left our home in perfect conditions and would love to have you back, maybe in summer, when your children can enjoy the pool?!
Spectacular property, beautiful views, incredible hosting - just the perfect holiday!!
The location, the views and the villa itself are all picture perfect! Everything about this villa is so thoughtfully and tastefully put together such that all age groups can enjoy it. Our dog loved the large gardens (and we loved the fact that they were fenced)! And there is much to be said about our host, Claudia, who went out of her way to make sure we had an amazing time. From providing countless tips to personally helping with logistics, we couldn’t have asked for a better host! We’re definitely going back!!
thank you for taking the time to review our home. It was so nice to get to know you and your family and their enthusiasm for little things like the milk foamer! We were so relieved that your mum found her wedding ring in the shopping bag. So we are really looking forward to have you back again and see you dog playing with ours!
Fantastic Villa in Tuscany
If you wish for peace and quiet, beautiful scenery and ability to visit attractive small towns and villages ( without too many tourists), plus have a spacious clean property and an attentive host then this is the right place for you. We spent 3 weeks in this beautiful villa away from crowded cities and we were happy.
The house was immaculately clean, very well stocked and comfortable. The large outdoor area - big garden, swimming pool and loggia - was a great bonus for us. We spent much of our time in the loggia.
The hosts Claudia and Bernardo were kind and lovely people. It was a pleasure to meet them.
We are going to return back next year.
Incredible stay - can't recommend enough!
We absolutely loved our time at Claudia's place! The house is beautiful inside, the grounds are immaculate and most importantly the view is stunning. The location was perfect for us and we managed several day trips to Florence and smaller towns and villages. We travelled with our 9 month old baby and Claudia couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you so much - we will definitely be back!
thank you for taking the time for a review, which is not so easy with 9 month old George, whom we saw in films on your fathers mobile phone. Too sweet.
We hope to have you back one day and we are happy you had a good time, thank you for having left the house in order and it was so nice to meet your parents.
Wonderful Place to Create Your Customized Vacation
We stayed for four weeks at this marvelous place. Claudia has done an amazing job creating this home that has all the charm you would expect from a rural Tuscan rental with all of the sleek, modern conveniences of any major hotel. No detail has been left to chance.
This is truly a rural setting, complete with a neighboring rooster to serenade you. The three bedrooms and baths provide you with all of the privacy you could ever want but with plenty of places to gather with others. Unlike some other rural rentals, you are not far from quality markets and restaurants, ATM's and auto service stations. Be sure to check out Monte San Savino, which you can see from the house. Market day is Wednesday and you won't be disappointed.
Located just a few kms from the Autostrade, this is the perfect place to launch day trips. We ventured to a number of wonderful Tuscan villages as well as the larger places such as Arezzo, Siena and, of course, Florence. However, there were days we just wanted to stay "home" and relax and this is a great place for that, too.
If you come to Oliveto, be sure to make a little time to chat with Claudia and her husband, Bernardo. They are the epitome of Tuscan hospitality.
Dear Mark, dear Shelley,
thank you so much for your friendly review! We were happy to have you in Oliveto and very pleased to see with which kind of care you kept our home, which we use ourselves and therefore have a different approach. We really appreciated when you were telling us all the experiences you made in these weeks and we will take it as an example and be less lazy!

Beautiful home with Views of Tuscan Hills
While the weather didn’t cooperate, the villa did not disappoint! We own a hotel in Canada so my level of expectations might be harder to achieve than most travellers. Claudia and her family went above and beyond, with arranging a private chef for cooking class, to finding an emergency dentist. The home is spacious and clean and beautifully appointed. We will definitely recommend to others. Note*. Villa is on a hill top, with no services. You will need to drive to restaurants and shops but only a short distance.
Dear Christy, Marcia and the rest of your lovely family,
thank you for taking the time for a review. We suffered with you for every rainshower and you had really a rainy week as also this week. Unfortunately this is not in our hands. Thank you so much that you left the house in such a perfect state, we really appreciated this. Hope to have you back one day in summer, enjoying the pool and the flowers. We will take your hotel in consideration, it´s location is simply awesome and so charmingly furnished.
If you have a look into Google maps, the photos added by Jack Dot, our son are correct and up to date.
A personal chef can come and either cook in the house or do catering service or give cooking lessons. The cook does not speak English but she will make herself understand as she is very passionate about cooking and all our guests who made this experience really loved it.
