Incredible hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (with three older teenaged boys, 15, 17, and 19) stayed at this property for a week in July/August 2015. We have used VRBO and related sites for many years with great success in France, Spain, New Zealand, and the USA (amongst others) and have always been very happy. But this property is over and above. The location is great with wonderful views and access to the vineyards, olive groves, and all the tomatoes you can eat, but it is the hospitality that makes this one stand out. From the moment we arrived and Anna came rushing out in a flood of Italian until the moment we left, our hosts (Anna and Dino) were wonderful. Gelato for the kids, wine for us, pizza with the other guests. They make a great location wonderful.

The photos on this site are accurate. The road up to the property from Montevarchi is a bit windy and narrow in places, but which country road in Italy isn't? Italy was in a heatwave during our trip and the property does not have air-conditioning. It was hot! But, fans were provided and we slept fine. Our boys socialized with others around their age in the evenings and late night. We could leave them 'home alone' during the day while we explored the hill towns of Chianti. Moncioni has a small store and there is a large supermarket 15 mins away in Montevarchi. All in all we had a wonderful week in a great location with a good sized pool and amazing family hospitality from Anna and Dino. They don't speak a lot of English and our own Italian is even worse, but, we managed fine and were made to feel like one of the family. They have a couple of guest books that go back to 1996 and they are full of reviews and comments like this and more. Letters and photos from former guests and drawings in the book from families who have enjoyed their hospitality all attest to the character of the property. Just great!

Prachtige lokatie met uitstekende voorzieningen

  • 5 of 5

Wij, familie van 5 personen hebben een verblijf van bijna 2 weken gehad. Eerst twijfel of alles wel klopte, want het huis was opeens verdwenen van de HomeAway site en de naam van het huis op internet bleek anders: La Chiuse. Uiteindelijk was het makkelijk te vinden en kregen we een warm onthaal van Anna. De eigenaren zijn zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam, ze spreken alleen geen andere talen dan Italiaans, maar mbv zeer goede wifi en google translate ging de communicatie heel goed. Het is een ruim huis met alle voorzieningen en het zwembad is geweldig met een fraai uitzicht op mooi plaatsje en de vallei. De omgeving is prachtig en er is veel te zien op een afstand van 1 - 1,5 uur rijden. Wij hebben genoten! Bedankt Anna en Dino.

En ferie med personlighed og charme

  • 4 of 5

Et fantastik sted med en smuk udsigt. Anna og Dino er et fantastisk ægtepar som ikke taler det mindste engelsk, men man føler sig utroligt velkommen fra første minut. Fin lejlighed ( Casa Marone) - dog kunne køkken og opholdsstuen godt have været lidt større. Hver søndag er der fælles spisning med familien og de andre gæster på ejendommen, en fantastisk måde at lære de andre gæster at kende på. Husk dog rigeligt med myggespray, da de kan være noget af en udfordring.

Nærmeste indkøb er i Montevartchi ca 8 km. væk. Husk at besøge torsdagsmarkedet samt de lokale isbarer

Har aldrig oplevet et feriested så personligt og imødekommende som hos Anna og Dino

kan du anbefale stedet.

petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

un gite confortable aux extérieurs très bien aménagés, idéalement situé pour découvrir la toscane ( environ égale distance de Sienne, Arrezo et Florence). Propriétaires d'une extrême gentillesse offrant quotidiennement des produits de la ferme. Vacances en famille très réussies.
