'Casa Chiesa', named after the 17th century church that sits opposite, is close to many family-friendly activities, the art and culture of the Renaissance Tuscan cities, fabulous inexpensive restaurants, and the coast is only 25 miles away with miles of beaches. Casa Chiesa is on a very large family estate dominated by the 15th century 'Villa Padronale'. You will love the space and charm of the newly renovated flat, its setting in the Tuscan countryside with stunning views, and its convenient location in the Maremma. On three sides it has lovely views, and close by is the lovely garden and swimming pool with wide sweeping views. The spacious and traditionally Tuscan cottage (in keeping with the rest of the estate) is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with children). It makes a great summer base especially and is about 85sq metres.
We have many years experience in renting out our family properties. On the estate we have rented out our 6 bedroom luxury villa through the high end London agency CV Villas for nearly 2 decades. We have decided to continue this trend and have recently continued to renovate our other properties. Sant' Antonio has recently been added to HomeAway too (number 8160612). Another two cottages available for rentals on the estate are: a 2 bedroom cottage called Casa Cavalli (6715725), and a 2 bedroom cottage called Casa Amiata (6722787).
We have a large staff on the estate who have experience in hospitality, and we can help organise many extra services/activities: station & airport pick-ups and drop-offs, food shopping, simple private cooking lessons and help with recommending what to do and see, and booking restaurants etc.
Check In FROM 16.00-20.00, Check Out is BY 10.00, unless agreed prior.
NB. There is also a shared private swimming pool that belongs to the main villa - it is not officially included in the the rental/price but guests are very welcome to use it (they must sign a responsibility waiver form before use, children MUST be supervised, and the pool closes at 7pm). This summer we predict that the pool will be available nearly all of the time - if the pool is not available you will be informed before you book (though please remember that the Maremma has a very long coastline too)!
In the local village, Paganico, there are banks, bars, a chemist, restaurants, a small train station, shops and tennis courts.
We offer automatic discounts on weekly and monthly stays.

Luca Savelli is the owner of the large Tenuta di Monteverdi, a family estate bought in 1912 by his grandfather, who turned it from a malarial backwater into a national model-estate for farming. Based in London, Luca visits the estate on a monthly basis spending longer periods there in the summer, though otherwise works as an archaeologist, primarily in Ethiopia and Italy.
Why Luca chose Civitella Paganico
The property is newly renovated (2017) but very much in keeping with both the Renaissance era estate it is on, and also with the style and standard that people expect when staying in Tuscany: in addition, it has lovely views and is very quiet. While the 100m2 apartment is traditional, it was renovated in 2017 with all the comforts one would expect: fully fitted and equipped kitchen, sitting/dining areas, comfortable beds and bed linen, bathroom with shower, clean energy pellet stove, efficient hot water supply, Wifi, TV/DVD, secure etc. The surrounding land, which is a large estate of historical interest with stunning views, is a working estate and has woodland, farmland, olive groves and vineyards, producing a variety of produce (including olive oil which we sell), and you are welcome to explore it. The location, in the middle of the Maremma, is exceptional, with easy access to many famous cities, including: Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Montelpulciano, Arezzo, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Chianti, and even Rome, while the miles of beaches are within easy short drives. Added to this are numerous activities: walks, riding, national parks, skiing (in winter), natural sulphur baths, golf, polo, tennis and much more, not to mention the fantastic and inexpensive cuisine!
What makes this Apartment unique
The real aim of putting this flat on the market is so it can be used as a very convenient base to explore Southern Tuscany, or for enjoying the coast, the rolling hills and Monte Amiata. We believe that the prices are good value in compared to the competition, and we also have many years experience in rentals on our family estate. Lastly, we have a large staff on the estate and so we can make your visit enjoyable as possible: At small extra cost, we can provide a car service, food shopping and cooking, laundry delivery etc, and we are always happy to help with restaurant bookings and advice! Upon booking, we offer a booklet with advice and information.

Rural tranquility - a haven of peace and quiet
this is perfect for people who really want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city breaks - you are really rural and the sounds of silence are powerful - you will need car or bikes or the hosts can arrange cooks etc.,
Luca is such a great host. He knows all the best places to go, is so accommodating on his beautiful farm and wants to make your stay special. The cottage itself is very homely and comfortable.
Will be coming back soon hopefully!
The stay was absolutely lovely. Luca, the owner was very welcoming and considerate of our needs. The apartment was perfect, with a beautiful view of the hills and easy access to the main road so not difficult to find for those who don't know Italy very well. The pool is perfectly tucked into the hills with a little hedge to create a very cozy and romantic setting. I recommend this house highly, as Italian estates such as these are rare to come across and worth every penny when you do.
Wonderful Tuscan Experience
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay here- it is a beautiful estate on the top of a hill with the most magnificent view and many trails to walk about the grounds. The estate produces olive oil and wine which can both be purchased (highly recommend). Our host, Luca, was very attentive and left a book of recommendations for the area (we spent a whole month here and still didn't have time to do everything!). The space was quaint, clean, and cozy with a beautiful new kitchen, and very comfortable beds. Definitely recommend!!
Thank you - i hope you enjoyed Como !
Great Tuscan Vacation
Spent an incredible month here! Went running every morning around the fields below the estate, and then explored Tuscany during the day. The flat was very comfortable and would highly recommend it!
Great atmosphere, charme and elegance
We spent a beautiful time in Casa Chiesa: great atmosphere, charme and elegance. Quite and peaceful place, gorgeous location. The property was simply perfect and full optioned, we felt like at home, included the lovely cat we called “Rusty” :-)!
Luca Savelli is impeccable and a perfect owner: he provided all informations about surroundings, attractions and restaurants. We recommend Tenuta di Monteverdi and Casa Cavalli to everyone and surely we’ll come back: simply, we loved it.
Grazie a te, spero rivederti!
The Maremma is a truly beautiful vast area, and not very well known, yet it offers so much in culture, cuisine, sea, activities and wine. Casa Cavalli is really well placed to enjoy all of these things, as well as for the larger areas of Tuscany/Umbria/Northern Lazio.
We also have an experienced and helpful staff who can make your stay much more enjoyable: they can cook, babysit, shop and book things for you, while I am very happy to help with itineraries, and occasionally give tours myself.
