A nice place with nice people....

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring Tuscany during our stay in this charming country house. Apart from the weather, everything was perfect, and it was exactly how it's described. It was a great value for what we paid for.

The family was extremely nice and friendly, very helpful and uncomplicated. Especially, we'd like to thank Miriam for taking care of our two dogs so that we could spend a day in Rome. That was very kind and sweet of her to offer her help.

We will definitely go back if we travel to Tuscany next time.

Fabulous Tuscan Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse experience is fantastic! It was by far my favorite week of my month-long visit to Italy. The farmhouse is beautiful. The antiques, combined with custom-made furniture are tasteful, beautiful, and made me feel at home. With a kitchen fully equipped, a pool on the property, and the quiet country setting, I could have stayed in the house all of the time! The host family was helpful in every way, and shared local gems with us (which were found in none of my extensive tourist book collections). I would highly recommend this experience of a lifetime!

Would love to come back

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful farmhouse/villa, with plenty of room for our two families to share. Situated on a beautifully landscaped property with a full kitchen and new appliances. The open concept on the main floor makes for the perfect sharing space. Everyone is together but it's large enough for each to have their own space or be together to watch the World Cup on t.v. So many places to escape for peace and quiet to read or nap. The pool is lovely and overlooks the Italian countryside. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

beautiful place, beautiful people

  • 5 of 5

the renovations to this house are astounding...and even moreso to know that myriam and michele have created them. our family of 6 - 4 teenagers - enjoyed every inch of this place including the pool, foosball table, tv for world cup watching, the cross-breezes through the open windows, sleeping in comfy beds on ironed LINEN sheets and pillow cases, and cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. we dined at the stunning walnut table (made by michele in his workshop on premises) in the dining room almost every night. we went to chiusi often to the larger coop and simply markets, and to piazze for smaller needs, and for dinner one night which was outstanding. we also loved the market on wednesday morning in piazze and myriam was an enormous help since she speaks such AWESOME english :). the lavender and roses and hydrangeas were in luscious full bloom, the dogs were super friendly, and the frogs serenaded us from the pond every evening. i miss the doves cooing to each other at sunrise and the amazing sunlit view from our bedroom window. in a nutshell....it was the perfect place for us to go on our day trips, or lay by the pool in the tranquility of umbria/tuscany...with outstanding wine by our sides! an extremely memorable trip that i long to repeat. thank you for being such wonderful hosts.

Fabulous country house with pool

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful restored country house with lovely garden and incredible views. New fridge, stove, dishwasher and laundry. Four large bedrooms with comfortable beds. One room has a loft with four single beds. Great pool. We are two families with four adults and four kids and it was perfect. Lots of space, quiet, private. Wish we were staying longer. Day trips to Siena and Orvieto. Near small town Piazze with tiny co-op store and even tiner bakery with very few items but everything was delicious (biscotti and breads). Best to stop at a larger store on your way for major items. Miriam and Michele are perfect hosts. Kids loved it too!

Really awsome place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here last summer as two couples with kids. Beautiful house with large rooms in a beautiful garden with a lovely pool-with-a-view. Really nice owners! Perfect location on the border of Tuscany and Umbria, in the middle of the countryside. Good location for trips to Sienna, Florence, Rome, Cortona etc.
