Guestbook comments from the manager


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!

First class villa with helpful & friendly owner in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending a week in this well appointed villa set in a beautiful location. The owner Francesca was friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and it was perfect for three couples to stay in. Thank you

Enjoyed a great week

  • 5 of 5

Accomodation clean and well maintained. Bug free too. Air con in bedrooms a well needed relief from the 40 degree heatwave we experienced. Pool fabulous - great size and kept clean. We had a car so enjoyed being away from the towns. Would highly recommend this property. A couple of softer pillows would have been appreciated but that is down to personal preference.

Fantastic Villa is stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 nights at Legnaia at Borgo la Chiusa in July 2017. Our family of four, 2 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 15, all had a great time. The villa is immaculately presented both inside and out with outstanding facilities, especially the outdoor seating/dining areas and the swimming pool. Our host Simone met us at the villa on arrival and explained everything for us and was available throughout for any issues or advice. The town of Siena is only a 10min drive and both Florence and Pisa are about an hours drive away so perfectly situated.

We wouldn't hesitate to return.

If HomeAway Allowed 10 Stars, This Place Would Get Them!!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely incredible experience! Let's start w/ the management company: Simone was fabulous, answering all of our questions before booking and even sending additional pictures of the villa when asked. Simone also set up an exquisite dinner prepared in the villa by Chef Elisa--all 8 of us highly recommend that experience.

There are three separate villas on the property, and we stayed in the center one, La Legnaia. Our stay included 8 adults and the 4 bedrooms worked wonderfully! Due to a 2+ hour ordeal getting our rental cars at the Fumacino airport, we did not arrive at our villa until just after 10:00 pm both tired & hungry. The owner, Francesca, was there to welcome us and called a nearby restaurant, Il Grillo Moro, to get a table for all 8 of us. Even though the restaurant was to close at 10:30, she persuaded the person on the other end of the line to seat us at 10:30. The meal was marvelous (see separate review in TripAdvisor).

At the time of our stay, Siena was experiencing a heat wave. The two lower level bedrooms rooms were perfectly cool without air conditioning & the two upper bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning. The kitchen/dining/living room does not have air conditioning, however opening the front and rear doors allowed for a nice cross-breeze.

Francesca and her husband were on the grounds nearly every day, so if we needed something (new ping pong balls or charcoal briquette starter) she was able and happy to accommodate.

The villa, it's grounds and the swimming pool are all immaculate! All 8 of us agree that we would rent this villa again without hesitation. Our stay here was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Italy!

A Tuscan Dream Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of seven, ages 7 to 70, spent 8 nights at this wonderful villa, and our stay couldn't have been better. It's quiet, yet convenient to Siena, location gave us the Tuscan Dream Holiday we'd hoped for. The kitchen/great room was well appointed, quiet comfortable, and had great views. The bedrooms and bathrooms helped us to rest comfortably after long days go sightseeing. The beautifully situated and well maintained pool area and patio added substantially to our enjoyment. Francesca, the owner/manager was always willing to help, but was non-intrusive. Overall, We cannot overstate just how much we enjoyed our stay in this villa.

Borgo 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 la Chiusa.

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 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.
