Beautiful Farmhouse with Pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this splendid farmhouse. The owners Mariam, Michael and their two boys bent over backwards to ensure our vacation went smoothly. They even helped us out when our rental car broke down!

Between Rome and Florence the location is perfect for day trips. Also enjoyed fabulous wineries nearby!

Highly recommend this lovely Italian farmhouse

Beautiful farmhouse, with wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

This is a great old Umbrian farmhouse, furnished like in the old times, with a very authentic old farmhouse feel. The setting of the house is wonderful, surrounded with beautiful garden, great pool and quiet, beautiful countryside. It' spacious and comfortable with all the amenities. The beds are great, we slept so well! The owners are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. They also have 3 wonderful dogs that my son was crazy about. He is already making us return for another holiday just to spend time with the dogs again. It's easy to cook your meals in the spacious kitchen, but if you want to eat out, just ask Maria for advice. There are very nice local restaurants nearby. One that we loved the most was Tuscany Divine, the whole experience of that restaurant is well worth 1/2 hour drive. The only thing we would change would be the weather. It was pretty cold for this time of the year, but the heating in the house works well, so we could warm it up. Next time we'd love to return for the summer, to enjoy the very nice pool as well.

A nice place with nice people....

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring Tuscany during our stay in this charming country house. Apart from the weather, everything was perfect, and it was exactly how it's described. It was a great value for what we paid for.

The family was extremely nice and friendly, very helpful and uncomplicated. Especially, we'd like to thank Miriam for taking care of our two dogs so that we could spend a day in Rome. That was very kind and sweet of her to offer her help.

We will definitely go back if we travel to Tuscany next time.

Fabulous Tuscan Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse experience is fantastic! It was by far my favorite week of my month-long visit to Italy. The farmhouse is beautiful. The antiques, combined with custom-made furniture are tasteful, beautiful, and made me feel at home. With a kitchen fully equipped, a pool on the property, and the quiet country setting, I could have stayed in the house all of the time! The host family was helpful in every way, and shared local gems with us (which were found in none of my extensive tourist book collections). I would highly recommend this experience of a lifetime!

Would love to come back

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful farmhouse/villa, with plenty of room for our two families to share. Situated on a beautifully landscaped property with a full kitchen and new appliances. The open concept on the main floor makes for the perfect sharing space. Everyone is together but it's large enough for each to have their own space or be together to watch the World Cup on t.v. So many places to escape for peace and quiet to read or nap. The pool is lovely and overlooks the Italian countryside. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

beautiful place, beautiful people

  • 5 of 5

the renovations to this house are astounding...and even moreso to know that myriam and michele have created them. our family of 6 - 4 teenagers - enjoyed every inch of this place including the pool, foosball table, tv for world cup watching, the cross-breezes through the open windows, sleeping in comfy beds on ironed LINEN sheets and pillow cases, and cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. we dined at the stunning walnut table (made by michele in his workshop on premises) in the dining room almost every night. we went to chiusi often to the larger coop and simply markets, and to piazze for smaller needs, and for dinner one night which was outstanding. we also loved the market on wednesday morning in piazze and myriam was an enormous help since she speaks such AWESOME english :). the lavender and roses and hydrangeas were in luscious full bloom, the dogs were super friendly, and the frogs serenaded us from the pond every evening. i miss the doves cooing to each other at sunrise and the amazing sunlit view from our bedroom window. in a was the perfect place for us to go on our day trips, or lay by the pool in the tranquility of umbria/tuscany...with outstanding wine by our sides! an extremely memorable trip that i long to repeat. thank you for being such wonderful hosts.
