Easy access from Rome or Florence make this a perfect choice for your stay in Classic Tuscany. Recently renovated with modern conveniences, this 1500's Stone Farmhouse is nestled in olive groves and rolling 'Chianti Classico' vineyards while still within a short walk from fine restaurants.

A professionally-equipped kitchen and multiple large outdoor living and dining spaces are just two of the premiere features of the estate property. Dreamliner Views overlook beautifully groomed and ancient Sangiovese & Merlot vineyards through to the rolling hills of the Chianti region.

A tended kitchen garden of herbs, greens and seasonable vegetables, with almond, apricot, fig, and berries only an arm's length away for those yearning to be Tuscan chefs.

RECENT GUEST REVIEW:

"We haven't even been here at the villa for more than 10 hours and I am already in love!!!! This is seriously a piece of heaven on earth. You have managed to make this the best villa that we have ever stayed at and we have traveled the world. You are amazing!!!! This villa is so welcoming and your level of taste is beyond expectations. This is definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy over the past 2 1/2 weeks. The way that you have decorated this villa is beyond words. You have captured Italy beter than an Italian! The decor is PERFECT!!!! I love the art to the bedding to the extra-special touches that you include that are not done without appreciation on our end. Thank you so much for letting us stay here and enjoy your marvelous home.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (including a 7 and 8 year old) stayed at this villa and it was absolutely amazing. We had Emily come out and cook and serve dinner our first night and it was nothing short of magical. The property is very well kept and furnished. The bathrooms and kitchen are modern and had all of the amenities us Chicagoans would desire. The location was close enough to the hill towns to easily go in for dinner or site seeing but far enough away to feel like you're in your own, secluded Tuscan estate. The view was absolutely breath taking. I'm recommending this beautiful property to all of my friends!

Michael was so welcoming and very attentive to our needs. He was so helpful to our group. This Villa is absolutely gorgeous as well as the property. I have never seen anything like it. If you want to experience Tuscany this is the place to go.

Best friends celebrating a 50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from the USA and UK to enjoy this beautiful Accommodation . We simply did not want to leave .

We loved the Terrace and the Privacy of the accommodation and all the beautiful details it had .

Our girlie holiday consisted of five friends who have known each other 20-40 years we had a lot of catching up to do .Leaving Hubby's and children back home how lovely to have the breath taking views , enjoying many a Prosecco and Red wine days .Eating too much and touring Sienna and San Gimignano but above all ,having a fabulous time , with lots of laughter especially the car ride going up the drive to the accommodation .Amanda ,Denise,Elaine,Maxine and Cath will treasure the time we had here forever.Big Thankyou

Family of 5

  • 5 of 5

This home provided a perfect getaway for our family of 5 including 2 teenagers and an 8 yr. old. When we weren't exploring the neighboring hill towns we enjoyed walks through the vineyards, time at the pool, and simply relaxing on the terrace with an amazing view. Michael was so gracious and was well-known throughout the local area which ensured special treatment for his guests. The house had plenty of space for our family. We look forward to a return visit!

What an extraordinary setting from morning sunrise to evening twilight every inch of this property looks as though you've entered into a painting From the linens to the landscaping it was beyond our expectations. We would recommend this to our closest And dearest friends. It was a most memorable location and ever so comfortable.

family from san francisco

  • 5 of 5

The house and location are one of the most beautiful spots in Italy. (BTW the photos of the house are lovely but really don't do it justice. It is spectacular!) The property is set among breathtaking vineyards with a view of the bell tower in the local village. It is peaceful and private but within easy reach of the local village and the slightly larger town of Castelnuovo Berardegna. The house itself is beautifully restored and appointed and large enough to have provided our family of four (including two teenagers!) with plenty of breathing room. Located at the gateway to the Chianti Classico region you are within easy driving distance of many of the great vineyards and the charming villages of southern Chianti. We also used the house as our base to travel further afield to Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Lucca and Pisa. No write-up would be complete without acknowledging Michael who is an amazing host and took great care of us during our stay. We really had an amazing time at LaChiusa and cannot recommend this house enough.
