Villa Larniano belongs to Tenuta Larnianone, about 140 hectares. The estate produces Chianti wine and extra virgin olive oil and the same family since 1930.
VILLA LARNIANO stands for the pleasure of furnishing spaces, cared for by the owner, that he has kept the original atmosphere while making it functional and practical. From inside the living room you have a spectacular perspective of the pergola of roses Banksiae and the driveway of oaks that are the natural extension of the large hall in the garden.
Villa Larniano overlooks the oldest vineyard on the estate (exactly 1 HA) arranged as a garden, with breathtaking views to the Val d'Orcia and Mount Amiata. The Villa is surrounded by a garden with tall trees centenaries and a tennis court cleverly placed in the green. The Villa has a small apartment Larnia which leads with side entrance and independent for more guests at the villa. It can accommodate 3 people. The price of the villa does not include the rental of the apartment Larnia and must ask the owner rates.

The property provides linen for the house and the pool towels that lasts a week. The linen and towels can not be washed at home. If you need an extra change to weekly that usually takes place on Saturday ask at time of booking and is considered an extra expense.
Waste must be taken away by customers and thrown in the special containers that are located close to urban centers. It is included in the weekly final cleaning, but for customers who leave to throw the waste will be asked 50 euro for the service.
I wanted to thank you for being such a gracious host while we stayed in your majestic villa that sat on sprawling vineyards and rolling hills. My family enjoyed the enchanted splendor the villa provided us while we traveled the countryside of Tuscany. Siena was a mere 5km away and the villa was convienient to the local supermarkets. The Villa was well maintained and large enough for a 11 of us to enjoy our time. We loved the large kitchen and grill outside which made cooking an ease. The terrace above allowed us to sit and watch majestic sunsets that lingered for hours. And the pool was a nice reprieve from the hot summer sun. I think we all agree our time at your villa was the highlight of our time. Thanks for being such a gracious host. I hope we get to return to this place some time in the future.
Our family had the opportunity to stay at Villa Larniano for 6 days. We experienced the best of Tuscany and was great break from the tourist attractions in Italy. The house was more than comfortable, well furnished and we enjoyed great meals in the well equipped kitchen. The Villa was set in a picturesque venue providing breathtaking views of the vineyards and hills. Anna was extremely helpful and very generous. We can only hope to visit the villa again.
Our stay at Tenuta Larnianone was the highlight of our trip to Italy. You and your beautiful home embraced us with magic and open arms. Our entire family(11 of us) relished the comfort of this fabulous estate. The majestic sunrises and sunsets will always be in our memories. We spent a week of bliss and happiness at your villa and will be praising it's beauty and comfort to all who have asked us for information.
Thank you also for being the most charming ambassador of your beautiful country.

Villa Larniano became "our Larniano"- our home away from home for a month. What a special place it was for us and our visiting children and grandchildren. Besides the lovely bedrooms and baths, the living rooms, the upstairs gathering room, the second floor covered terrace, the tennis court, the comfortable chairs in the lovely yard all provided more than enough space for everyone to have a place to relax or play or enjoy the gorgeous views. Our family pingpong tournament was good fun for all ages. Nothing was better than grabbing an early morning cup of coffee and sitting outside listening to the birds, seeing an occasional rabbit run by and enjoying the sun coming up.
The villa was ideally located. It was only 20-25 minutes outside of Siena. One could either drive in and look for a spot to park, use the parking lots outside of town or park in Due Ponti, buy a bus ticket and take the local bus into Siena with no car hassle. The location was perfect for day trips to the Chianti hill towns, Volterra, San Gimigiano, Montepulchino, Montechino and San Galgano, to name a few. The location made going out to dinner easy as well. How delightful is was to come home from a day trip, have a swim in your pool, take a nap and then have a Tuscan Spritz or wine before dinner!
While everything about the house, grounds, and location was terrific, it was Anna, the owner of the house, her two brothers and their crew of caring and helpful employees who rounded out the great experience we had. They answered questions, solved minor problems quickly, gave suggestions of what to see and where to eat and even gave a tour of their winery. We also enjoyed hearing stories of family history which gave us a wonderful connection to Tenuta Larnianone. Thank you, Anna, for all you did to make this vacation the best ever for all of our family!
Villa Larniano is where dreams really do come true! The villa is beautifully appointed with tremendous living space for all to enjoy. Every window has a spectacular view of the grounds which include the picturesque vineyards and orchards. Every morning we would awaken and say, "Pinch me! Is this real?!" We truly enjoyed the pool- it was lovely and oh so enjoyed after a day of touring the countryside and nearby villages. Anna, the villa owner, was kind and most attentive. She made sure every detail was tended to and every request fulfilled.We truly enjoyed the tour of the vineyard and hearing stories of her family's time spent on the property. Aurora, the chef who cooked our arrival night dinner and breakfast the next morning, was charming and delightful but most importantly a fantastic cook! There is so much to do and so many places to visit, all within reach of the villa. This was a memorable vacation for sure! We hope to return one day soon.
I just returned from two marvelous weeks at Villa Larniano! With my husband, parents, parents in law and extended family (11 of us) we celebrated my husband's 40th and our 5th year wedding anniversary - it was also a family reunion! There are no words to describe the views of the rolling hills and vineyards - it's as if you are sitting on top of everything and the scenes you look at - you have to remind yourself are REAL and not a painting! We woke up every morning and made a family style breakfast in which we would eat outside on the terrace. From there we would lounge the day away by the wonderful pool. In the evenings we would again have family style dinners - we would move the tables from the terrace to the other side of the house over looking the vineyards - SO beautiful! The house itself was so spacious and homey - we felt so comfortable there right away.
I have to say that our time there was even more special because of the attention to detail and care that we received from Anna, the house owner. She was always available for any questions that we had - always with a smile! Anna, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home - the memories we made there we will have for the rest of our lives!
