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!

Amazing accommodations

  • 5 of 5

After travelling for 3 weeks, what a pleasant way to relax and enjoy Tuscany by staying here....the accommodations are truly amazing....we were a large group of 7 people and it easily met our needs...and what can you say about the owners, they were amazing as well....if we were running low on firewood, they were there immediately re-supplying it....if we had any questions, they responded immediately....if you like hiking or going for walks...this place is for you....if you like to sit and relax, this place is for you....though we were in a rural area, we had all the emmenidies nearby....the butcher store is within walking distance....and yes, do yourself a flavour buy the Florintine bisque, bring it home, and BBQ it on the wood burning BBQ...truly amazing experience...if you don't want to do it yourself, there are a few nearby restaurants that do a great job of it....we highly highly recommend staying here....you will not be disappointed....

A true picture book Italian hillside villa

  • 5 of 5

What made this vacation superb was not only the lovely setting, (simply beautiful) but also the gracious hostess help acquaint us with the local community. we were actually able to partake in a large community dinner put on by the local growers. A night of dinner and dancing!

The days were filled with visits to other local villages where one of our group aptly described life as "antiquity normalized".

The church bells every hour reminding us of the many ages surrounding us gone by. What a trip of our lifetime.

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.
