The outside of each house offers a well kept garden, a lovely patio with table, chairs and BBQ for outside eating and relaxing.

A break at Borgo la Chiusa is ideal for taking a language course, enjoying the Palio of Siena, taking wine tasting tours, making cooking lessons all of which we can organize for you.

ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a four week stay in the Fienile 5 Bedroom / 5 Bath Villa. From Day 1 through Day 28, we could not have been more pleased. Over the course of this stay, we had a variety of family (to include young grandchildren) and friends visit. Eyes grew wide and bright upon entering the private driveway and yard. No one wanted to leave!

The property is meticulously cared for by the owners Francesca and Rosolino. They are totally committed to guest comfort and their pride in their properties are obvious. The interior of this Villa is even more impressive, if that is possible. Clean, Modern... 1st class in every regard. And if that doesn't sell you, then the countryside views from the ground patios and upstairs bedrooms will seal the deal. An added plus is the large and beautifully maintained shared pool, steps from the Villa. WOW!

In preparation for this 4 week stay, my wife and I took a mini vacation last August with one purpose being to personally view potential places for this upcoming 4 week venture. We had the opportunity to visit a host of properties throughout the Tuscany region. Without hesitation, we can say that although several possibilities emerged, all were a distant second to Fieniel.

Location wise, day trips are plentiful. The city of Siena is 6 - 8 Kms away. Spectacular sites such as San Gimigano, Volterra, Castelli di Chianti, The American WWll Cemetary (a must visit just south of Florence), Banfi Winery... are all an hour +/- away. The list goes on and on! Even the Prada Store outlets, if that's your thing, are nearby. There are grocery stores and excellent restaurants just a few Km's away.

The bottom line is that this property is top notch in every respect. The owners are wonderful people. AND there is no doubt that we are returning.

Absolutely Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

I looked for months for a villa to rent and was so happy when I came across Borgo La Chuisa and the Fienile unit. Simone (the manager) was so easy to deal with and gave me so much information before I committed to rent. This was a special trip for me, my daughter, my niece, and friend. Upon arriving, we were in awe driving up the road to this beautiful property. The girls could not believe this was where we were staying. We each had our own room with our own bathroom. And the views were so stunning. The whole place was spotless and just beautiful. I had arranged for a welcome dinner from Simone prior to arriving and Francesca, the owner of the property, cooked for us our first night and it was absolutely delicious. We could not believe we were not in a restaurant. The food, the wine, the dessert, were all amazing. Staying here was the highlight of our whole Italy trip and we all can't wait to come back some day! Thank you Simone and Francesca. You made my birthday trip Perfect!!

Fulfilled our bucket list!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of the villa was breathtaking! And then it just got better! The kitchen was well appointed, furniture very comfortable and bathrooms outstanding. Everyone was comfortable in the ensuite bedrooms and it was nice to have space to spread out. We cooked about half our meals and found local restaurants for the other days while seeing the other small towns. Then there was the outside space which was delightful for cocktail hour!
