Paul Van de Velde and Ann Franssens purchased this villa in 2011

Why Paul Van de Velde and Ann Franssens chose Foiano della Chiana

We bought Villa Scannagallo because it is a modern en contempory villa, in the middle of Tuscany and surrounded with small cultural cities like Cortona, Arezzo, San Savino, ... and next to the wine region Montepulciano. We searched for more than 1 year (on a daily basis) and it was the construction of the villa (really luxury), the infinity swimming pool and the region who convinced us to buy that property. The villa is located in Foiano della Chiana and easy to access. The nearest airport is Firenze. Then you take the highway direction Rome (50 minutes) and then 10 minutes on the secondary road. ... We decided to rename in 2012 our B&B to B&B Villa Luogoceleste. Luogo means "place" and celeste means "heaven". A peaceful place where you enjoy the nature, the rest and the good things of life - good food, good wines and nice trips.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and cultural cities. The nearest town is Posso della Chiana (10 minutes walk) where you have little shops, postal office, bancomat. This town counts 300 people. The Villa offers breakfast and concierge services (cleaning, change of towels, and bed linen). You have a big garden with infinity pool. Inside you have 3 double bedrooms (each with their bathroom) on the first floor, 1 family room (double room, 1 children's room and common bathroom) on the groundfloor, a large living space (with fire place), a dining room and fully equiped kitchen. In the living room you have satellite TV, DVD, playstation, Wii, internet access. Next to the breakfast we also serve on reservation diner and light lunch. In the neigborhood you have very good and nice restaurants. We organise also wine degustation.

This was a Tuscan dream

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we stayed at Villa Luogoceleste. As the word it says it is a place in heaven, quiet, beautiful, excellent service by Paul and Ann. We enjoyed the welcome diner and the table d'hotes. You have fantastic views from your room from the infinity swimming pool. For people who likes to visit it is also the good place because you are not far from the interesting cities like Firenze, Siena, Cortona. Paul gave us always nice tips when we did the visits. In the morning you awake of the smell of the fresh baked bread and the local cheese and ham for breakfast. It was fantastic and we booked already for next year, there are so many places to visit and this is the ideal place profit of the nices things like the wines, the Prosecco, the excellent food and last but not least the quietness and rest.
