Easy access from Rome or Florence make this a perfect choice for your stay in Tuscany. Recently renovated with modern conveniences, this 1500's Stone Farmhouse is situated in the middle of acres of Olive Groves and rolling Sangiovese vineyards while still within a short walk from fine restaurants and two quaint Medieval villages. The entire property and pool is not shared with any other guests and there are no adjacent neighbors. A professionally-equipped kitchen and multiple large outdoor living and dining spaces are just two of the premiere features of the estate property.

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. So happy we found ‘LaChiusaChianti’ in our online search! This villa is so welcoming, also producing and selling your own organic olive oil from the estate each November. Your level of taste is beyond expectations. This is definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy over the past 2 1/2 weeks. You have captured Italy better than an Italian! The decor is PERFECT!!!! I love everything....from 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. We ABSOLUTELY will be back! Thank you again for sharing your beautiful villa with us'.—Beth B. Karen S. said...-Family of 5, July 25, 2015 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!More

The house was fantastic and the owner, Michael, was extremely helpful in the run up to the trip. His recommendations were spot on and the four of us had a lovely time staying at the villa. It was perfect for four adults.
