Guestbook comments from the manager

Erica,



We would like to thank you so much for providing the wonderful itineraries in your Borgo la Chiusa booklet. We followed 3 of the "trips" and had a truly fabulous time both driving thru the Tuscan hills and visiting uncrowded sites. And we didn't get lost even once!



We intended on completing the Val di Merse, Montagnola, and Chianti itineraries but we had such a great time everywhere that we only finished parts of Val di Merse and Montagnola and never made it to Chianti!



We spent several hours each at San Galgano, Radiacondoli, Casole d'Elsa, and Pieva Di Penina because they were so beautiful and interesting. There were other places we planned to visit, but we ran out of time, so it just means we have more to come back for!



By the way, the gardens at Centinale were closed for renovation--something else to see when we return. We are definitely slow travelers to Italy and share your love of the beautiful sights and peaceful tranquility Tuscany has to offer.



We especially appreciated Casole d'Elsa because they made it so easy to navigate the scooter up to the hilltop by providing elevators. That was an unexpected treat!



We also again want to thank you and Francesca for helping us navigate our way to Siena--we followed the instructions and for the first time we didn't get lost! We even went back there one more time before leaving Italy!



We would be remiss also If we didn't offer thanks for the wonderful restaurant suggestions. We ate in a bunch of them and found all to be wonderful!



Our two weeks in Tuscany were everything we hoped for and more, and we will be sure to recommend you to any of our friends who are thinking of a Tuscan holiday. Thank you so much.



Arriverderci and Mille Grazie!

A beautiful home in a beautiful place.

  • 5 out of 5
While we had a challenge finding the villa (realized I had no correspondence with an address) walking in was like coming home. The home is beautiful with 4 bedrooms (2 main floor,one with an on suite, 2 downstairs) 3 baths and well equipped kitchens. The grounds are fabulous, lovely terrace with table and a great seating area. The pool is beautiful and really appreciated in 30c plus weather! The owner Francesca and her son Alesandro were wonderful and realizing we were not getting our rental car until Monday, offered to take us to the Coop on Sunday to get groceries to see us through.
I would recommend this place to anyone and hope to return in a few years. The only downside is you really need a car. While the bus does run right outside I think you need to be familiar with the area and language to make your way around by bus. I recommend you ensure you arrive early enough on Saturday to rent a car. All agencies we checked were closed Sunday.
Thank you Francesca and family. This was a definite high light of our holiday.

We highly recommend La Chiusa!

  • 5 out of 5
La Chiusa was a wonderful location for our three generation family trip to Italy in April 2013. The place was scenic, peaceful and close to The Coop grocery store. It was very clean and well equipped with appliances and comfortable furniture inside and out. After busy day trips to Siena, Florence, Pisa, Lucca,San Gimignano and Montalcino, the four adults relaxed and sipped wine while the 3 boys, aged 9,5 and 3 burned off any extra energy they had by using the pool or playing in a beautiful and secure yard. Francesca and Alessandro pampered us with a delicious four course meal served on the patio with the Tuscan sunset as our backdrop. What a wonderful way to see visit the Italian countryside.

Excellent place!

  • 5 out of 5
I am not a very good writer, but I will say this. Your property was the last of 3 places we stayed. We stayed in an apartment in Florence that was good in size, had everything we needed, not the cleanest in the world, but just fine for our purposes. Then in Lucca, stayed in a B&B which was also fine, but cold, with bad bedding. We had spent alot of time sightseeing, out on the streets walking, eating and drinking. In general taking in all in and having a good time, but getting tired. We rented a car and left Lucca for Siena. When we arrived @ La Chiusa, it was too good to be true! The warmth and cleanliness and comfort of the house was so welcoming. It had everything we needed. Especially nice, was to go "home" in the evening, cook or just relax with some wine and a fire with our friends. The beds and bedding were great. Bathrooms were excellent! The price value was excellent. It was a great way to end our trip. I would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to the Siena area. If I ever make it back to Italy I would definately seek out one of your properties. You are never REALLY sure what is portrayed on the internet will be what it really is. La Chiusa definately lived up to the picture and description and more. Francesca was so sweet. I only wish I spoke Italian. Shame on me! Also Erica always responded to my emails in a timely fashion. As you can see, I have so many good things to say about this place.

A Great Time !

  • 5 out of 5
There were four of us on holiday in Tuscany from Florida. We loved the accomidations and our hosts were excellent. All you need when you stay is your personal stuff. The views of the country side were great we ate dinner and had morning coffee on the outdoor patio every day. We do recomend this location for your Tuscany vacation.

Vacaciones agradables

  • 5 out of 5
Hola, alquilamos la casa en diciembre del 2009.
Solo podemos decir que la casa es muy agradable y los propietarios estupendos.
La casa consta de un comedor cocina, amplio, con todo lo necesario y una chimenea.
Tres habitaciones, dos de matrimonio y una doble.
Tiene tres lavabos y un cuarto con la lavadora.
Hay muchos lugares por visitar.
Fuimos dos parejas con niños y fue una estancia maravillosa.
Seguramente volveremos en alguna ocasión, y recomendamos la casa.
El pueblo mas cercano esta a unos dos kilometros, cada mañana mi amiga y yo ibamos al pueblo caminando a comprar el desayuno y el periodico , es un paseo muy agradable, por bosques y campos.

Y nada más, solo decir que si alguién busca una casa para pasar sus vacaciones en la Toscana, esta es una muy buena opción.
Muchas gracias y saludos a los propietarios.

La Chiusa is a small hamlet just outside Siena, the best preserved medieval town of Italy, whose community retains its ancient traditions. A perfect location to relax and visit art cities like Florence, San Gimignano, Pienza, Volterra, the leaning tower of Pisa. Tuscany is the land of Art and Culture, home to Leonardo, Galileo, Michelangelo whose homes, museums and masterpieces you'll be able to admire on a day trip from Borgo Vitignano. Il Palio di Siena, a thrilling traditional horserace, takes place in the centre of Siena every year in July and August. Tuscany is also famous for its red wines. On a day trip you can visit Chianti, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Scansano and why not Bolgheri. For those of you who love unspoilt nature, Maremma is but an hour away. The gorgeous Mediterranean coast is only 70 km away, with Castiglione della Pescaia, Punta Ala, Follonica, La Carbonaia. Perugia in Umbria is only 110 kms away.
