About Eli Lehmann
We restored the vacation home we had always hoped to find to rent, but couldn't, in the countryside we love. Although we live and work now in the United States, we lived in Europe for several years and wanted a home to return to and enjoy. Our house was finished and appointed to be a home - not a rental. We know you will love it as much as we do!
Eli Lehmann purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Eli Lehmann chose Asciano
We bought this house because of the stunning beauty of the area - the Crete Senese - and its proximity to so many gorgeous, ancient hill towns and their world class wines and restaurants: Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Monteriggioni, and many others. Buonconvento, down the mountain from us, past the historic Abbazia di Monte Oliveto, is a charming center for eating and shopping.
What makes this Villa unique
Our house is ideal for refined people who are looking for a place away from the crowds - a place of beauty and tranquility to relax with family and friends. It is a perfect place from which to bike through amazing wine country and forests of the Tuscan hills, taking a different direction each day. In the afternoons, you can bask by our beautiful pool and watch the sun set over the pool and hills, bathing the evening in gorgeous red light. At night, millions of stars, unavailable to most city dwellers, light the sky and one's imagination! Things to know: There are 2 small attached apartment units located on this hilltop setting with us. They are typically occupied by their lovely owners during June and July. There are separate entrances, dining areas, terraces, gardens, etc. There are thick stone walls between. The pool is common to all. During June and July there is a policy for not children under the age of 10.

Great time for all of us!
We stayed at White Truffles as a family (8 of us!) to help celebrate a special birthday. The villa was perfect for the occasion - plenty of room, well equipped, and well located to get to lots of hill towns. We really enjoyed early mornings sitting on the veranda. We all had cars which gave us the ability to sight-see at our leisure. The wine tours, the hill towns, the ambiance of White Truffles made for the perfect week in Tuscany.
Amazing getaway in the middle of Tuscany
My husband and I stayed here on during our honeymoon and it was absolutely magical. The villa is exactly as pictured and an amazing escape in the middle of Tuscany. Although the dirt road in was a little longer than we expected, it was worth it for the privacy and views from the villa. Eli was a great host and provided extensive information about the villa and the area, had lots of recommendations and was quick to respond to any questions we had before and during our stay.
We enjoyed cooking in the villa, relaxing poolside and wine tasting in the nearby towns. There were only two of us but the villa could easily accommodate up to 8. The location was perfect! Major wine regions are only a short drive away and the neighboring towns were perfect for quick grocery runs or a meal out.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone considering staying here and have even discussed coming back with our families.
Fantastic! Quiet, tranquil and stunningly beautiful.
We loved staying at Collebianco - and would love to return. The biking was great (we had road bikes delivered from Sienna), the countryside is stunning and the house and annex are comfortable and well stocked. We didn't realize when we booked that there are two other rental units in the same "house" - there was a couple there for two nights, but the rest of the time it was all ours. Worked well and even with other people would be fine - but good to know in advance. There is a LOT to see and do in the area - and easy to take the train to Sienna and Florence from Asciano.
Thanks for helping us have a fantastic retreat and vacation!

Heaven on earth in a Tuscan Villa
Our stay at Collebianco was one of the best trips of my life! One of my best friends and I celebrated our 50th birthdays with our partners and had an absolutely wonderful time. The villa is perched up on a hill (it's even better than the photos!!) with the most stunning views imaginable. We had our morning coffee out in the garden every morning with our breakfast and cooked up delicious dinners in the very well appointed kitchen. The villa was conveniently located to many small villages and markets. The other two rental units were not occupied while we were there. There was a sweet cat that would come by and chat with us. Highly recommend this lovely property. Appreciate the very quick responses when we did have questions about where the switch was for a fan in the kitchen and things like that. :) Until we go back, I'll dream about this beautiful place.
Brilliant Villa nestled in the heart of Tuscan Crete
8 friends from Australia gathered at Collebianco recently at the culmination of our various European holidays. It proved to be a fantastic last week as we were able to explore the many delights of the spectacular surrounding hilltop towns during the day and then return to the relaxing 'sanctuary' of our Villa (often with a lovely bottle of the local red and antipasto in hand). The Villa itself is brilliantly fitted out with all the mod cons while maintaining a lovely rustic feel and even though there were eight of us staying at no time did I feel 'crowded out' - it was all very comfortable. Finally, a big heads up for Eli and the great line of communication throughout the process - any questions were answered quickly and nothing was too much trouble. A lovely time was had by all - thank you Eli.
We spent a week here with two teenage boys and my parents who are octogenarians! Which the layout lends itself to superbly. Had an amazing time. Very much a home from home. Great kitchen with everything you could need
Stunning scenery. Great recommendations in the guests information pack.
Lovely terraces where one can escape the heat. Great shared pool, with stunning vistas.
Beds were extremely comfortable.
Montepulciano is not to be missed, and the Abbey also.
Just fantastic. Happy memories.
The well maintained roads and hilly terrain of this area are ideal for cyclists.
