Francesco and Isabella are very gracious hosts. They want your stay to be comfortable. The grounds that this estate is on is perfectly manicured, the pool is a perfect way to spend a down day and there are plenty of hikes from the property to stretch your legs. It is very central and can access the trains but I would recommend renting a car. You will NOT be disappointed if you rent this property, I would return in a flash. enjoy.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Tuscany. We stayed here for nearly 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. Both Isabella and Francesco we very welcoming. They gave us a bottle of their excellent wine and also a jar of their homemade jam and tomato sauce. We were allowed to pick fresh figs from their trees, which were amazing!

Tenuta Chiudendone is in a great location. Within an hour you can be in Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Chianti and many more places. Its a great place to explore so much Tuscany has to offer!

We would definitely return if we got the chance!

Beatiful estate in the perfect Tuscan location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week here with our kids (5 & 7). After looking extensively through VRBO and other websites, we decided upon Tenuta Chiudendone and we had no regrets. There are so many places to go and things to see in Tuscany and this is really a fabulous location to do it all. It's central location lends itself to easy day trips to most of the region. Located on top of a hill, there are beautiful views in all directions. It is secluded, but not remote. There are several small towns within a few minutes. The grounds of the estate are stunning. There is an infinity pool and small play structure and hammocks for leisure and kid play. Though not heated (most pools in Italy are not), it was the warmest one we visited in our month in Italy. We stayed in the upper apartment (I think the layout is identical to that below though furnishings vary). It was very spacious. We used the kitchen several times to cook dinners at home. The windows all have screens on them which seemed to be a rarity in Italy. We would open the windows in the evening and the apartment stayed cool. Though it does have AC, we did not need it the first week of June. I think the best part of Tenuta Chiudendone are the owners Francesco and Isabella. They are extremely friendly and easy going. We cooked dinner with them one night for a relaxed Italian home evening. They are very well organized and have a book with information about the area, places to visit, restaurants, etc. They are very knowledgeable about the area. We ate dinner at several of their recommendations and were not disappointed. There is no shortage of hidden treasures in Tuscany and this place is not only one of them but is the perfect location for discovering more. We would stay here again in an instant and would recommend it to all our friends.

A perfect place to stay in a beautiful part of Tuscany. Within a short drive to Florence, Pisa & Lucca. A little further to Volterra, San Gimignano & the coast. We stayed in both apartments during our holiday and loved each one. They are spotlessly clean and well maintained as is the whole property. The views from the house and poolside are stunning especially at sunrise or even better sunset with a glass of Francescos wine in your hand! Francesco & Isabella could not be better hosts, recommending places to eat & even organising a private chef for us.We are definitely going back & would not hesitate to recommend to friends.

Ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Erde! Super Unterkunft die keine Wünsche offen lässt!

  • 5 of 5

Toller sehr großer Wohnraum. Wir waren im Erdgeschoss. Gemauerte Gewölbedecke , schöne Küche. Schöne Bäder. Der Pool hat zwar Salzwasser aber wirklich nur einen Hauch von Salz. Viel besser als Chlor. Dass gesamte Anwesen ist nur über eine Privatstrasse zu erreichen und liegt auf einem Hügel mit überragender Aussicht. Dass Anwesen wird immer gepflegt. Auch der Pool top in Schuss. Würden gerne noch mehr Zeit bei unseren netten Gastgebern Isabella und Francesco verbringen. Fazit: Traumort, Traumwohnung. Immer sofort wieder.

Tolle Ferienunterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit vier Erwachsenen für eine Woche in der wunderschönen Wohnung (untere Wohnung). Das Haus liegt exzellent zentral, um mehrerer Ausflüge in die Toskana und Umgebung zu machen. Die Eigentümer und Vermieter Isabella und Francesco sind äußerst nett, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Fragen auch im Vorfeld werden sehr schnell beantwortet. Einen Abend wurden wir mit weiteren Gästen zum gemeinsamen Abendessen durch die Vermieter eingeladen, es war perfekt. Die Wohnung selbst hat alles was man sich wünscht, die Schlafräume und beide Badezimmer sind gut ausgestattet. Der Pool lädt nach einem Tagesausflug zum Entspannen ein. Wer hier Stil, Annehmlichkeiten und etwas Ruhe zur Entspannung sucht ist genau richtig!! Wir können die FeWo und die Vermieter nur weiterempfehlen!!
