Large arched windows will welcome you in the bright main lounge of the villa, that according to country-style tradition is the true hub of the house. All the ground floor rooms overlook the magnificent floral garden; and on the upper levels large windows allow the Tuscan landscape to break into the rooms, providing a splendid frame of the Tuscan hills as far as the eye can see. 4 luminous suites with marble en-suite bathroom, equipped with fine linen (bed sheets, Towels, blankets), slippers, Welcome set for bathroom, bathrobes and pool towels. Are you needing a private area for your Smart-working? Then the reading room on the ground floor will provide you silence and reservedness for your concentration, with the chance of enjoy of the outdoor porch for your working time. In the sitting area two comfortable sofas will allow you to watch a sports game on the flat screen TV Sat, or even entertaining conversations in front of a crackling fireplace on early Spring or Autumn. In the centre of the dining area stands an ancient Tuscan style table, enriched by a magnificent 18th century chandelier. Finally two large windows-door open out directly onto the garden, where a beautiful sitting area under a pergola runs the entire length of the house overlooking the valley. So you could comfortably move between indoor and outdoor for grilling at the barbecue, serving meals or enjoying a glass of wine. With its bucolic view and the gentle summer breeze, this pergola is the ideal shaded spot for friends and family to gather for leisurely meals, conversations or drinks. The panoramic HEATED swimming pool (12 x 6mt / 39 x 19.5ft ) - with hydro-massage feature - is completely immersed in the green of the vineyard. Two lovely gazebos are also added to the outdoors by the pool: one with a covered dining spot; one with fresh canvas and shaded lounge-chairs. Although Summers in Italy can be hot, a number of our guests have expressed an interest in HEATED pool especially on Spring and Autumn periods. A well-heated pool lets you enjoy the view and the fun of swimming long after the day’s heat has gone or even if it’s a crisp, spring morning. And finally the sitting chairs on the panoramic deck make it the perfect spot to soak in the Tuscan sun with a cool drink in hand at the sunset. For your maximum comfort the villa is fully Air-conditioned, anyway – if you love to sleep with open windows to let the nightly breeze on – any bedroom has one window equipped with screen. The villa has also free Wi-Fi connection throughout the building and by the pool area, and the suite on the top floor is even equipped with a kitchenette featured with a small fridge and a stove top. The villa is supplied with 2 hairdryers, microwave, toaster, Nespresso Machine and American coffeemaker, dishwasher and refrigerators, cookware, dinnerware, glassware and kitchen utensils, dishtowels and table clothes. Extra blankets and pillows are provided, with kitchen staples (salt, sugar, pepper, tea and many spices), dish soap and trash bags. But La Valiana will catch you even by its great location. Easily reachable by the main highway (Siena-Perugia) and motorway (A1 Rome-Florence), this villa is the perfect location for any trip to the local charming village or beautiful cities of Tuscany and Umbria too. And right along the same street of the villa, you can enjoy the visit the most important winery of Montepulciano. And now just enter in the right mood of the Dolce Vita (Sweet Life) at Villa La Valiana. Relish the joy of a Dinner in the Vineyard, the charming of a gourmet dinner with Private Chef with candles lights or the experience of a private wine tasting with the great wines of Tuscany. All in one place, at Villa La Valiana! A refined residence, at the same time blessed with all the comforts and yet retaining the flavor and allure of most authentic Tuscany. You only have to sink in, dine slow and enjoy all of it, in a peaceful and elegant atmosphere. ***** At check-in: - Security Deposit: € 500.00 by cash (refunded at check-out) At Check-out: - Final Cleaning (MANDATORY): € 250,00 - Tourist Tax: €1,00 / pers per night - A/C: On consumption BY HOUR METER Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: IT01133890523More

Our initial travel planning with Villa La Valiana as our base started in 2019 for a 2020 stay; but like so many other things, COVID-19 changed our world whereby we finally arrive for our two-week holiday in late August of 2022. Prior to arrival (by train from Cinque Terre), our wonderful host Cecilia had consistently communicated with us to provide villa information and offer many specifics to enhance our visit. When we arrived at La Valiana, we were warmly welcomed by Cecilia who then provided a very thorough walkthrough of the beautiful villa and its surrounding property. Not only did our first impressions exceed our expectations, but we also continued for the duration of our stay to discover more and more of the wonders of La Valiana--its offerings, its peacefulness, our host, and her family. Throughout our stay, Cecilia provided information both proactively and reactively in a comfortable and very helpful fashion. We took full advantage of the fresh offerings from the garden, enjoyed the pool almost daily, cooked on the outdoor grill, dined and/or enjoyed Tuscany wines at numerous sitting location options in and around the villa, and celebrated each evening's magnificent sunset. The villa itself just welcomes a traveler to go at a relaxing pace and take advantage of both the villa itself (whereby we had several days where we didn't leave the property other than perhaps for a short trip to pick up some groceries) and also soak up the surrounding Tuscan regions. As the villa is in a wonderful countryside location between Montepulciano and Cortona, we also enjoyed our travels to Montepulciano, Cortona, Assisi, Pienza, Montalcino and Siena. Two of our favorite villa memories will always be the dinner in the vineyard (one must do this!) and the villa cooking class and dinner--not only because of the amazing food offerings and perfect wine pairings, but also because we felt like an extension of the family of Cecilia, her husband, her parents, and her adorable son. Thank you, thank you for your warm, comfortable hospitality and your exceptional service. We love your villa and your pleasant family and look forward to our next visit to La Valiana!

This was my 3rd time staying at this amazing Villa. We keep taking back different friends and family with us so that they have the experiences that we did. Cecilia and her Mom and Dad have created such a beautiful place for guest to immerse themselves in the real beauty of Tuscany. Cecilia always is a big help in arranging for a driver to pick us up in Rome, wine tasting at Bindella , Boscarelli and Avigonese. Rental car in Cortona. Chef Luca at the Villa It is so wonderful to have her Mom prepare a lasagna meal for us and a grand brunch on Sunday. The pantry was stocked with wonderful fresh food for us to use. I think the best part for me this year was when Chef Luca came to the Villa and made the most delicious dinner for us. Cecilia's son Edorado helped Chef Luca make pasta for us. The best ever. The Villa is always very clean and accommodating. We had the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets, I think Cecilia personally ordered them for us. Cecilia and her family have become part of our family. I can't wait until our next time.

This was our 4th time at Villa LA Valiana and each time is better than the last. It's a magical place and wonderful location for a Tuscany vacation to visit different hill top towns. Cecilia is a super host and very accommodating. She made all of our dinner reservations and recommended some great areas to visit. We highly recommend.

Due to Covid and various other issues that arose we were unable to take our trip to Villa La Valiana. The trip was originally scheduled for last year but we had to postpone till this year. At the end we had to completely cancel our trip. Through it all the owner Cecilia was extremely understanding. She is terrific when it came to communicating through email …very responsive. We hope one day we will be able to visit Villa La Valiana and meet Cecilia!

When you imagine a stay in Tuscany, you imagine a view of hills, fields, vineyards, cypresses and charming authentic buildings. This is the view that awaits you every morning at La Valiana. A very quiet and relaxing estate. A very green, well-tended garden, a vegetable garden where you can pick tomatoes, courgettes and cucumbers bursting with sunshine. The house is very pleasant, spacious, tastefully furnished and remarkably clean, with air conditioning in all rooms. A perfect place to relax and to visit the surrounding area. The location is perfect. In 15 days, with visits every two days, we saw Florence, Siena, Orvieto, Perugia, San Giminiano, Montepulciano, Cortona, and some others... in a ragne of 1 hour drive. Excellent place in itself, but the best part is the discreet warm hospitality of Cecila, the owner. Her first words were "I want you to feel like at home". She is passionate by her country and she wants to share it with you. She makes your stay easy. If you need information or a tool, it is waiting for you on the terrace table when you wake up. She is a great wine advisor as well, which you probably expect in such localisation. We also had twice a cooking class in the villa organised by Cecilia's mother, followed by a dinner on the terrace. You get the incomparable taste of Tuscan farm products in 4 courses, with a perfect view, without stress, better than in a restaurant! The extra touch that made our stay unforgettable. The right balance of passion and care for details! One of the best place we ever stayed!

We have recently returned from our second visit to La Valiana and it was just as magical as we remembered. The elegant villa is spacious and beautifully furnished, and the gardens and pool are spectacular! You are surrounded by vineyards and have total privacy and yet with beautiful Tuscan towns (and the supermarket) a short car ride away. Due to the pandemic, we were not able to enjoy the full range of experiences normally available at the villa but nevertheless, Cecilia‘s hospitality was just as welcoming and she was always ready to arrange wonderful meals and to give advice and suggestions of places to visit. Also, the additional cleaning and safety measures implemented by Cecilia, due to the current situation, made us feel very secure. If you are looking for a dream Tuscan holiday look no further than La Valiana. Thank you Cecilia and family for another wonderful holiday, we cannot wait to return!

First and foremost, I would like to thank Cecilia for arranging the our wine tasting & our rides from and to the airport from Rome, along with also arranging our rental vehicle for the week. We did not get the opportunity to meet Cecilia because of the arrival of her bundle of joy!! But, I have to say that her parents were more than accommodating. Alma & Ivo were very gracious. From the lasagna Alma made on our first night at the villa to our dinner in the vineyard with Ivo grilling expertise of local meets. Buonissimo!! Oh! I forgot to mention we are Italian/Americans and were able to communicate with them! This villa is a gem in the hills of Montepulciano! it has breathtaking views and the villa itself is not only clean but, rooms that are spacious and unique in their own special way. We enjoyed picking figs & grapes every morning for either breakfast or for a snack. Alla prossima! Until next time! Grazie!

We just returned from a week's stay at La Valiana and can't say enough good things about this amazing villa and the exceptional hospitality offered to us by its owners Cecilia, Alma and Ivo.. It is a family run vacation rental for families to enjoy and basque in the splendor of its beauty in an authentic Tuscan countryside. As you enter the property, you will be mesmerized by its manicured gardens that offer various unique locations within the property to sit, swim ,relax, reflect on nature's beauty, read, dine or just enjoy extended conversations with family members. It is very child friendly and our young grandchildren enjoyed every minute of their pool time and exceptionally comfortable amenities inside the villa. Clearly, Cecilia, mom and dad spared no effort in remodeling this once abandoned property and transforming it into a modern, top of the line vacation destination with their focus on high quality workmanship, amenities to die for and superb decorating taste. This was, in short, a labor of love, a vision realized for the family who now take great great pride in ensuring that all guests experience its natural beauty, its welcoming atmosphere, its strategic location and the warmth of a home environment . We took daily trips to Castiglione del Lago, Montepulciano, Siena, Cortona etc., and returned in mid afternoon to enjoy the beautiful pool. We also took advantage of the daily dinner services offered and Alma delivered her varied and excellent Tuscan meals each evening at a time of our own choosing. The gourmet Dinner in the Vineyard was especially memorable from its outdoor location with beautiful sunset views, to the table setting, to the exquisite multi course dishes prepared by Alma and Ivo ,to the wine pairings and to excellent service provided by the staff. Thank you Cecilia, Alma and Ivo for allowing us to create some beautiful memories during our stay at Villa Valiana. I am so happy that our grandchildren were with us and that we created some beautiful long lasting memories together in Villa Valiana. We hope to return very soon. Mille Grazie Cecilia, Alma , Ivo.

Thank you for your kind words--and for describing your experience and perceptions as you have done. We think that memorable travel must include a great combination of pleasures: a great place to stay, beautiful surroundings, tasty food, an interesting culture, and then the authentic warmth of familiar hospitality. Thank you for mentioning how much you enjoyed the tailored Delivery Dinner service, and the Dinner in the Vineyard with sunset view. These experiences are ways for us to help guests enjoy an authentic Tuscan way of life--and for us to get to know our guests in a fun and personal way. We love it! And we hope our guests do, too. We look forward to your return! Grazie Mille, CECILIA, ALMA and IVO

Just wow! If you’re looking for a beautiful villa with a Tuscan feel and to experience Italy like no other, book here. The villa is gorgeous, the pool is amazing the views are like no other and the owners are incredible. We booked 2 private dining experiences with them. The private chef and diner in the vineyard and it exceeded our expectations. We went as a family of 6 with a 5 month old baby and it was just perfect. Every night we sat on the balcony and watched the sunset over the Tuscan valleys. If you’re a morning person you can also sit on the balcony on the top floor and watch the sunrise. It was just bliss. The supermarket is only 20 mins away along with gorgeous quaint villages and many vineyards for wine tasting, the closest being 3 min drive away. Thank you so much to the owners for a memorable Tuscan experience. X

Total and utter bliss. What a great find for a family celebration. The villa exceeded our expectations. It is spacious and beautifully done. The gardens and pool area overlooks magnificent countryside. View sunsets from the dining terrace. The additional dining services they offer are exceptional. We had the personal chef for my sons birthday which was a gastronomic delight. Dinner in the vineyard was magical. A beautifully decorated table and fairy lights greeted us and the food was amazing. The villa is also very convenient for visiting local villages and towns. You can see these in the distance from the villa, twinkling at night. Thank you Cecilia and family for a truly amazing time.

Dear Susan Lynn G, we are so pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay at Villa LA VALIANA! The villa, and particularly its garden with its spectacular panoramic views of the Tuscan hills and towns, is the perfect place to relax by the heated pool or to start nice trip in both in Tuscany and Umbria. It was our pleasure to celebrate the birthday night blowing out the candles with you all. And a joy to know you were delighted by the Chef's gastronomic creations based on Tuscan flavor and best quality products - making it a real treat to have a gourmet meal "at home" and no driving afterwards. And I am most of all happy you have experienced the Dinner in the Vineyard: a traditional dinner settled in the heart of our vineyard, with rolling hills view at the sunset light ...the perfect way to soak up the magic of Tuscany lifestyle! We hope you'll come back again, either for another special occasion, or just because Tuscany and our beautiful corner within it have captured your hearts. It was a pleasure and a joy to have you stay with us. We thank you most sincerely wishing you and your wonderful famly all the best! CECILIA, ALMA and IVO
