“This property was beyond expectation in comfort and beauty.”
5 of 5 stars

The location of this property allowed us to take day trips to several Tuscan towns including Assisi and Cortona. The property was clean, had a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and quality linens. There were screens on all the windows. We especially enjoyed the flowers, the nearby olive trees and vineyard. The panoramic view from the villa was picture perfect with cypress trees and castles on the horizon and the landscape of wheat fields and pastures. Seven of us stayed for one week. There was ample room for dinners and relaxing on the outdoor deck. We were thrilled with the pool and spent evenings there sipping local wine. Without hesitation we would return to this property. We had a true Tuscany experience at Podere Chianciano and thank Raffaele, the owner, for his gracious hospitality.

“Podere Il Biancospino - Step Right Into Tuscany!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2015

We settled on having a big family gathering for a birthday milestone here in the middle of stunning Tuscany! The traditional style farmhouse accommodated 7 comfortably between two floors. Three bathrooms and backup kitchen for overflow worked well. Only one problem two weeks was not enough!! The weather heated up and the pool overlooking lush patchwork countryside was hard to leave. However, the house was particularly well placed for quick visits to some beautiful towns; Montepulciano, Pienza, San Quirico D'Orcia, Montalcino. Florence and Siena were also not too far. Our local town was 5 minutes to the Coop for provisions and cafes for the morning fix of espresso doppio! How lucky were we! Mr Rafaele looked after our every need and was a wonderful host that definitely contributed greatly to our special two weeks! The crowning experience was a birthday lunch cooked by Leonardo - we all participated in making pici pasta ("typici" of the area), and learnt to make a number of other traditional dishes. The rest of the meal was equally delicious and an amazing meal surpassing any restaurant experience! Bellissimo!

“Great Villa, views and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Villa experience here was great! Nice open floor plan on main floor with kitchen, living and dining. Was pleasantly surprised to find out that the villa was only built in last 10 years, so more modern amenities. Bathrooms were nice with great showers and soaker / jet tub. Screens were helpful on windows. Great black out blinds too for sleeping in. Amazing views. Very quiet. Rafaelle (villa owner) was so hospitable, bringing us daily treats like fresh olive oil and wine from the villa gardens, eggs, fresh produce and amazing home-made dinner. Excellent location to do day trips. We spent a month here and had a blast. Would definitely recommend this place. Enjoy !
