Why ivana strauss chose Chianti

We had a crush on this house and never regretted it. We hope to share this passion with you.

What makes this house unique

The extraordinary views over the vines and the olive trees, the peacefulness, the garden and the sunsets make Casa l’Orto a special house where you feel “home”. That is what all the persons who came here told us.

Ideally located 12 km from Florence and close to the most beautiful Tuscan sites.

Wonderful location,, beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time; the pool was very well maintained and watching the sunsets at night and the hot air balloons in the early morning was magical.

No a/c. No screens on windows. Prepare to sweat.

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful house. Owner is difficult and has attempted to keep 300€ over spilled olive oil on terra cotta tiles outside on the walkway. If needed those would be a few dollars to replace. Other than this the place is nice, clean and very well maintained and has a nice location. Also charge 250€ for a pack and play and Play and called it a kids bed. No a/c would have been fine but to have to keep the windows closed for bugs in summer because they have no screens on the windows if unacceptable.

Très jolie maison tout à fait conforme au descriptif avec tout ce qu'il faut, dans un cadre magnifique. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Rachele comme prévu et par le monsieur qui s'occupe de la piscine. Nous étions deux familles et nos adolescents (9) rêvent de revenir.

Great property and a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property for one week during May and we all agreed this is a fantastic place to spend time at. We were 3 couples staying at the house, 2 of which had children and in total we were ten people. The property easily facilitated for this number of people. There is a small guest house on the property as well complete with bathroom, beds etc. This was a good place for in this case my parents offering some peace and quiet away from the small kids in the evening….. Another really great thing if you have small children (that can't swim) is that the pool is fenced, and at least our children were not able to climd the fence during the week. The house is reached by car so you do want to rent a car.

The setting of the house is maybe the best part of all. The house sits on a beautiful slope with a fantastic view over olive trees and grapevine. It doesn't get more tuscan than this. You are able to watch the sun set behind the mountains in distance. The surroundings are also very silent and you don't hear any traffic or other noise what so ever. Very beautiful surroundings to take a stroll in the evenings.

Interior of the house is also very tasteful with a nice kitchen, rustic doors, textiles etc. We really had a great couple of days and we can strongly recommend this property for your tuscan holiday!

Inoubliable !

  • 5 of 5

Une vue magnifique sur la campagne toscane, des prestations de très grande qualité, un luxe authentique sans ostentation, la proximité d'un petit bourg avec des tables succulentes ... entre Florence et Sienne, c'est l'endroit idéal pour découvrir la région et se reposer quelques jours. Nous sommes ravis d'avoir passé quelques jours dans cette jolie maison et nous reviendrons !

Coup de foudre pour cette maison.

Nous louons tous les ans, et cette maison dans nos favoris. Nous reviendrons certainement
