We wanted a countryside B&B as a base from which to explore both Umbria & Tuscany by car, without having to move. Al Gardino degali Etruschi fitted perfectly. Chiusi itself is an interesting place well placed to get to/away by rail or highway but a car is needed to fully experience the area.
After our first day of driving in Italy & a few unexpected adventures on the way down from Venice we arrived late,stressed & cranky to a genuinely lovely warm welcome from Carolina& Paolo. Right away the vibe kicked in.
One could stay longer here. We should have made an extra day just to relax by the pool or patio or in the lovely old rambling gardens that wrap around the house in a sort of protective way. The renovations have been done properly, adding modern amenity without detracting at all from the gracious look & feel of this fine old Tuscan country home. We loved our comfortable room, its traditional bedcover the shiny terracotta floors, old ceiling beams & dappled morning sun through the oak outside our window.
Carolina & Paolo are great hosts, well connected & knowledgable about special places & restaurant suggestions. We couldnt have asked for any more & our stay at their home was a highlight of our long trip through Italy & France. We wish them all the best with this venture.They are certainly making a fantastic go if it.

Purely by accident we found this B and B on "BandB Planet" and made a 2 night reservation. We subsequently changed this to 5 nights and did not regret the decision.
Located about 5 km (3 miles) from the Chuisi train station this Band B is idealy located near the old Hill Town of Chuisi - full of Etruscan history (check out the Museum) as well as the modern "lower town".
It is also ideally located close to (easy driving distances) to many Tuscan Hill a few. The Tuscan landscape is stunning to drive through.
Carolina and Paulo are wonderful hosts.Full of suggestions for day trips and where to eat locally. Both are hard workers and make you feel right at home. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable, and the "great room" is a delightful evening gathering place where hosts and guests can socialise and get to know one another. Our nights there saw a few bottles of local wine and Lemoncello enjoyed by all.
While nestled between a busy highway and a major rail line the facility is amazingl quiet. Even with open windows the quietness is pervasive.
Both Carolina and Paulo are justifiably proud of the surrounding groomed gardens and pool area (closed when we were there in October - no surprise). Lots of seating areas, contemplation nooks and just quiet spots to get away from it all!
Try to get to know Tanguy and Camilla the resident guard geese who will welcome you from their enclosed area near the parking lot!
While "breakfast" is provided be advised that while entirely adequate it is a "light" breakfast. Cereal, milk, yogurt, juice, brewed coffee (warm milk on request) tuscan bread (tuscan bread is baked with no salt and is usually in our experience almost stale no reflection on our hosts) butter jam and jelly.
Every day there is a new "cake" or baking item available. Also they will supply a cheese and meat platter upon request.
Entirely adequate. Just dont anticipate bacon and eggs and lots of warm toast!!
Carolina speaks wonderful English while Paulo in his exuberence manages to communicate as only Italians can!!
We loved every moment of our stay and hope to return.

Room Tip: All rooms are on 1st Floor (2nd for Americans and others not familiar with European floor numbering) but Paulo is ready and able to carry your luggage (within reason) up the centuries old worn steps to your accomodation.

It was great to see Carolina and Paolo waiting to welcome us on the steps of the house and offer us a great cup of coffee and cake. The rooms were very comfortable and offer a sense of peace and wellbeing. The small gift of local honey and a hand written note in the room made you feel special. Both Carolina and Paolo a special effort to point you in the direction of local places to eat (try the Osteria Da Gagliano) and see. After a great nights sleep you are offered a good breakfast. Try this place if you want to feel special and to relax after a busy day exploring the area.

This is the perfect place for exploring Tuscany. Just outside of the historic center of Chiusi, where there are Estruschan ruins and catacombs as well as great restaurants, this little gem is driving distance to almost any Tuscan hill town you want to visit. (you will need a car)
It is better than home away from home (because at home you have to do things for yourself)!
We had an exceptional experience here. Carolina and Paolo were wonderful. I don't think there was anything they could have done to make us feel more welcome. I travel a lot, and I don't know any people I have ever encountered in my entire life who were more friendly and genuine.
There were seven of us, so you would think a couple of proprietors might be a little stressed by a large group of noisy americans descending on their property. They went above and beyone to make each and every one of us feel special.
Paolo enthusiastically helped us with our travel itinerary every day.
OK, too much gushing, you probably want to know about the accomodations:
Lovely grounds,
sparkling pool,
abundant great food (be sure to have them cook you dinner at least once- it was amazing food, great value, and better than most restaurants we found)
Clean, simple rooms with
Clean bathrooms that functioned well.
There are five rooms off a central living space in the upstairs of this large farmhouse. The breakfast room is downstairs in the back of the house, and it opens to their patio where you can choose to have breakfast if you want.
I hate to say this because I love them so much, but there is not air conditioning or ceiling fans. We were fine in June but I wonder if the rooms get a little hot in the summer - something to check with them about.

Great Value, and a great experience all around. We had so much fun there!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful, you can't go wrong.

Carolina and Paolo are so kind and their place is absolutely gorgeous. We came in the summertime and it was absolutely perfect to rent a car and travel around Tuscany in the mornings and then come back and hang out by the pool in the afternoons. Definitely take them up on cooking for you one night as the food is tremendous and from their own garden! I cannot say it enough - this place is perfect!! Definitely rent a car though as it is a little far from town and it is nice to have the freedom to run around all over tuscany.
