double bedrooms and
two apartments. Each tastefully furnished with its own luxury bathroom, air-conditioning
in most rooms,
central heating and satellite television. The six en-suite bedrooms can be arranged
to provide either double or twin sleeping accommodation - except Gioia
with its canopied bed. The two self-catering mini apartments
include a fully fitted kitchen (including dishwasher), wood-burning
stoves and, for those chillier evenings, full independent central
heating. The slightly larger apartment has its own large private
terrace with spectacular views across the Valle di Chio. However,
all accommodations offer wonderful views of the surrounding
countryside around Pieve Di Chio and
is some of the most beautiful you will find in Tuscany. Cypress
trees together with olive groves, vines, oaks and evergreens are in
abundance. During the summer the landscape is transformed to include the
golden hues of grain and sunflowers. Throughout the spring many fields
become a sea of crimson poppies.
In the mornings you can
enjoy a leisurely
breakfast served either
on our delightful sunny terrace overlooking our olive groves or in our
room. During the day a
light lunch can be served informally around the
terrace. A private
party is catered to
our guests on two evenings per week. Alternatively, there are many
in the area - whether you are looking for simple home cooking or more
elegant dining - of course, we can arrange bookings on your behalf.

day. Here you can relax, swim, read a book, take a light lunch or
simply soak up the
sunshine and the panoramic views across the Valle di Chio. On balmy summer evenings the pool
area and the pool itself are lit for our guests exclusive use - what could be
better? If you aren't sure if this spot is right for you then
