About This Listing
Set in the tuscan hills, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, near Umbria and Lazio. One hour drive from Florence and Rome. Milena is a great host who will make your stay memorable. Chiusi is an ancient etruscan town, 3000 years old and offers much to see and do. The apartment is half of a villa, has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Free wifi. You will need a car as we are 3 km from town. B&B also available on request. A great place to relax, explore and enjoy the true tuscan culture.
You will have a private yard with swingset and lounge chairs and a gazebo for outdoor dining, as well as the use of an outdoor wood-burning oven and barbecue.
Interaction with Guests
We always meet our guests in person and enjoy talking with them on a daily basis.
Abbiamo soggiornato in 10 persone dal 31 dicembre al 2 gennaio. Patricia si è dimostrata gentile e disponibile fin da subito: ci ha aggiunto un letto poiché eravamo in 10, mentre la casa era per 9 persone, ci ha fornito tutte le informazioni necessarie per prepararci all'arrivo (cosa avremmo trovato e cosa no) oltre alle indicazioni stradali per raggiungere la casa (che abbiamo trovato facilmente).
Anche Atos e Milena si sono mostrati disponibili. Al nostro arrivo è stato proprio Atos ad accoglierci: ci ha mostrato la casa (in cui abbiamo trovato riscaldamento e camino già accesi), l'angolo esterno in cui potevamo fare la brace, dove prendere la legna, come collegarci al wifi, etc.
La casa ha tre camere da letto tutte spaziose e con un bagno all'interno. La cucina è fornita di tutti gli elementi necessari (padelle, posate, tazze e bicchieri etc.), mentre il salone forse è l'unico spazio un po' piccolo per tutte quelle persone.
Durante il nostro soggiorno, comunque, non abbiamo avuto problemi e la nostra valutazione è senz'altro positiva.
Casa accogliente e location mozzafiato per un week end all'insegna del relax... Patricia e Milena sono delle persone eccezionali che ci hanno accolto benissimo... Da ritornarci!!!
Patricia was a excellent host. We booked this place very last minute and arrived very late at night because we got lost.
When we arrived her mother in- law showed us the house and made us expresso and crackers . We wished we could speak Italian so we could understand what she was saying. She hugged us. Universal language.
The house is set in a beautiful setting, very comfortable bed.
Thanks again Patricia for helping us so last minute.
We had an absolutely lovely stay here! Patricia's mother-in-law Milena couldn't have been any sweeter. She served us coffee on our arrival and made sure we were comfortable. Chiusi was the perfect base for us to explore Tuscany with a car. The drive up to the house is heavenly, past a vineyard and a field, up to the house where there is a commanding view of the Tuscan countryside. The kitchen was fully equipped if you want to cook and the bed was comfortable. There are actually two bedrooms and two full baths, perfect for a family or couples/friends traveling together. We can't say enough good things about this place, about Chiusi, and about Milena and Patricia. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Patricia's place is magical!!! If you want to be in an Italian oasis, this is it. You must have a car, but other then that, this place is FANTASTIC!! I LOVED IT!!! We arrived in the dark, so we weren't sure what to expect, but the next morning was sunny gorgeous, and when I looked out the window I gasped at the beauty around us. The guest house is lovely, very comfortable, and it was great to have the kitchen. It looked like the pictures, and was fairly easy to get to. When we got into the main town, Patricia's brother in law met us, and we followed him back to the place, thank goodness, because it is off the larger road, and I don't think we could have found it other wise. In the light of day the next day, we drove around a bit, and found the area very easy to get around, and we even found a little shopping center with a bank, super market, and a few shops. Patricia's place is a fantastic place to go and get a break from the craziness of regular life, to enjoy Tuscany and feel a bit rejuvenated. I can't wait to go back and stay longer next time!! Thanks for the wonderful visit!
