This was a wonderful property with all the comforts of home. It was roomy and comfortable, very clean and had everything we needed. It was conveniently located near major freeways, within 15 minutes of the historic area of Siena and about an hour 15 minutes from Florence. We traveled all over Tuscany and Umbria with this home as our base and it was convenient for all of our travels.
Francesca thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us. The apartment was very nice and well stocked with all of the needed amenities. It was truly beautiful to look out onto the green Tuscan landscape. Thank you for meeting us on our arrival to help us settle in. The location was perfect for our vacation visiting the surrounding hill towns. We sincerely hope to come back one day to stay again!
It was definitely the highlight of our extensive 3-week Italy tour!
The property was indeed delightful in all aspects, the location, the scenery, the property itself, including the rooms, kitchen facilities, and obviously lovingly decorated premises with tasteful details all over the house. We had picked this property as a hub to go on daily visits to Chianti, Pisa, Florence, etc. it was a great pleasure to go back home for pleasant evenings filled with drinks, antipasti, and barbecued dinner.
The only negative was that there was no bath soap or washing machine detergent when we arrived, which is an inconvenience, especially if you come from abroad and have to immediately rush to town to get supplies.
We will recommend Porcilaia to friends around the globe, and hopefully be back ourselves!
Compliments to the owner Francesca, and to Simone for the impeccable communication...
The apartment is lovely, well appointed, spacious, very comfortable. It offers fabulous outdoor spaces as well, just as pictured. Extra bonus is the beautiful view of Tuscany. It is located about a 20 minute drive outside Siena, which is a good location if you are driving around Tuscany. However, there are not any resources close by, like a grocery store, coffee shop, or restaurants. The closest grocery store is a ten minute drive and it was small and didn't offer much. If you are looking for peace and quiet and to get away from it all, this is a great place!
My husband and I were so fortunate to find Porcilia. It was a truly delightful, peaceful place after our stays in Rome and Florence. It was extremely clean and well furnished. We especially enjoyed the outside Tuscan grille. The owner was extremely attentive to our requests. There are several restaurants and a good market nearby. I have raved about it to several people and would love to return when the weather is warmer and we could enjoy the pool and outside patio.
This was a perfect place to stay close to Sienna but with the peace of the countryside. The owners were very helpful giving google earth maps to the local supermarket and the house itself was spotless and very well equipped. The surroundings are picture postcard beautiful. The house is well situated to the motorway making it easy to get around. Close to the COOP supermarket was a great restaurant, called the green Frog(?) great food and good value also an ice-cream parlour just across the road. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending La Chiusa. just one question does Tuscany have more stars or is just a bit closer to heaven and therefore easier to see them!
La Chiusa ist ein kleiner Ort kurz vor Siena, die besterhaltene Mittelalterstadt Italiens, dessen Bewohner die antiken Traditionen bewahren. Ein perfekter Ort zum zu entspannen und Kulturstädte wie Florenz, San Gimignano, Pienza, Volterra, und den schiefen Turm von Pisa zu besichtigen. Die Toskana ist das Land der Kunst und Kultur, Heimat von Leonardo, Galileo, Michelangelo, deren Häuser, Museen und Meisterwerke Sie in einem 1-Tages-Ausflug von Borgo Vitignano genießen können. Il Palio di Siena, ein aufregendes, traditionelles Pferderennen, findet jedes Jahr im Juli und August im Stadtzentrum von Siena statt. Die Toskana ist für ihre Rotweine berühmt. Mit einem Tagesausflug können Sie Chianti, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Scansano und warum nicht auch Bolgheri besichtigen. Für alle Liebhaber der unberührten Natur, Maremma liegt nur eine Stunde entfernt. Die wunderbare Mittelmeerküste liegt in nur 70 km Entfernung, mit Castiglione della Pescaia, Punta Ala, Follonica, La Carbonaia. Perugia in Umbrien liegt nur 110 km entfernt.
