About the property

Extraordinary Villa, with 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) and private pool

This delightful villa has been thoughtfully renovated to include all of the essentials for a comfortable sojourn in the Tuscan Countryside. From it's beautifully updated tile baths (showers) and full kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine, to all of the little touches that make a house a home, you will feel like you are staying with long lost family. Homemade jam and local honey await your arrival along with a bottle of wine and olive oil produced from the fields surrounding the villa - our way of saying bienvenuto - welcome to our little slice of paradise.

Located down a short private road in an area of Tuscany known for private country homes and expansive views of pastoral countryside dotted with stone houses, woods, vineyards and farm fields, the villa is ideal for a small group or family traveling together.There are three bedrooms and two baths all on a single level. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other two can be either 2 single beds or 1 king bed as you prefer. One bedroom has an en-suite bath and the other two share a hall bath, both with showers. The floors have a warm terracotta patina and the ceilings are hand carved wood-beams. A lovely combination of both old and new throughout.

However, the most breathtaking part of the villa is the view. From the lovely covered terrace adjacent to the entrance to the villa replete with dining table for 6, the fabled Tuscan landscape rolls on for miles and miles disrupted only by an occasional stone home in the distance. In the evening, you can enjoy the view and be treated to the intoxicating scent of lavender and rosemary as you sip a glass of wine or prosecco.

Down a short set of hand carved wooden steps lined with lavender and rosemary on both sides that seem like they have been there for centuries, lies a gorgeous private swimming pool completely surrounded by olive trees and a private vineyard. The view of the countryside from here is extraordinary. And when you tire of hanging around the house (if that is ever possible), you can head out for day trips to places like Florence, Rome, Siena, Assisi, Cortona, Orvieto, Perugia, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Chianti all within an hour's drive from the villa. Or if you prefer, the fast train between Rome and Florence stops in Chiusi just 15 minutes from the villa. There is free parking nearby and you can travel comfortably to Rome, Florence, Siena or cities farther afield. There are several rental car companies within walking distance of the train station so you can also arrive by train quite easily. And lastly, just 5 minutes by car from the villa lies one of the loveliest small villages in Tuscany. With a vibrant central piazza lined with small shops and several outstanding restaurants, you won't have to travel far to eat well and experience the warm communal nature of the Tuscan people.

We strive to make your stay with us a most memorable one and to that end we are happy to help you with your planning and itineraries as well as organize wine tastings, guided tours of the Etruscan tombs nearby, a special meal prepared at the villa or any number of other activities. Please contact us for further information.

We look forward to seeing you in Tuscany!

Absolute gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely superb site surrounded by olives vines and sunflowers and views to die for with best pool ever had and a joy to be there. Only tiny niggles were spec of kitchen was modest, could do with better coffee maker and toaster. Also second shower needs some tlc. Little things which pale into insignificance as this property is seriously feel good! Would love to return or even buy it! M

Beautifully located house with immaculate garden and pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at La Casetta, enjoying the gorgeous views from the terrace and the delightful pool. We particularly enjoyed the birds easily spotted from the terrace, seeing swifts and swallows, goldfinches, hoopoe and bee eaters. The property is well maintained, very clean and comfortable, and Patrizia is a kind and generous host. We were particularly grateful for the tart, olive oil and wine, and the homemade jam and pasta sauce. We visited Siena, Montepulciano and Orvieto which are of course amazing, but we do recommend the smaller less touristy towns nearby which are truly delightful, especially Citta della Pieve, Sarteano and Cetona. Great, good value trattorie and ice cream!

Einfach Wundervoll!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses kleine aber feine Ferienhaus hat uns einfach begeistert. Man bezahlt keinen unnötigen schnick-schnack sondern für alles was zählt für einen traumhaften Familienurlaub: Ein sauberes Haus mit allem was man braucht, sehr herzliche Gastgeber (die Dame die sich vor Ort um die Gäste kümmert ist die Nachbarin und ganz herzallerliebst aber auch die eigentliche Vermieterin ist sehr sehr nett und hilfsbereit), eine wundervolle Aussicht und einen traumhaften Pool und Garten. Auch die Gegend an sich hat uns verzaubert denn Cetona ist ein sehr schönes Dörfchen mit sehr guten Restaurants und einem sehr Dorfplatz mit viel Charme auf dem wir sehr stimmungsvolle Abende verlebt haben.

Wir (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder) haben bereits gebucht um wieder zu kommen!

Magical stay in Cetona

  • 5 of 5

We instantly fell in love with this villa the moment we arrived. The view is unbelievable - changing every moment... be sure to get up and watch the sunrise too. The villa is great - we loved how convenient it was for touring all around Tuscany. Everyone was super helpful and friendly (thank you Patrizia and family!)- we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. We can't wait to go back. This place truly is a gem!

A Tuscan Treat

  • 5 of 5

Tuscany is the place to visit in Italy and this is the place to stay in the Tuscan countryside. Imagine watching the sun rise over the vineyards while you sip your coffee and nibble on your pan dulce while you plan what city you want to explore today. Siena, Perugia, Assisi, San Gimignano, the Montepulciano wineries. Its All within an hour drive from this lovely villa.

Patrizia is your host and is a most engaging person. The villa is comfortable, clean, ideally situated and the town of Cetona, which is a 5 minute drive up the hill, is a most friendly and accommodating place to shop for your necessary items. If you want a place to stay for an unforgettable experience in one of the most lovely and famous wine regions in the world you need look no further.

The best view in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

My dream did come true of staying in a villa with the most beautiful view, peaceful, close to two small towns (not many tourist) and close to trains to take us to Siena, Florence and Rome. The villa is clean and very well kept! Patrizia, had a wonderful tart and wine waiting for us, which we enjoyed every morning! We requested dinner for the first night, prepared by Linda was just perfect. Of course we ate on the covered patio-did I mention how amazing the view was? Linda was very helpful with pre-trip questions and suggestions of cities and restaurants to visit.

We loved the Cetona, just a short drive from the Villa, where we visited a wine/cheese shop where the owner gave a a tasting! (There are also some really good restaurants) One week was not enough to enjoy the villa and everything else there is to see! Thanks Linda and Patrizia for making this a trip of a life time for me, my sister and friend.
