THE VILLA

A large Villa, Chiusarella is set into the slopes of a small hill within the 'Villa D'Arceno' Estate. It was once the home of those who worked the land for the landlord whose seat was the nearby 'Villa Arceno'.

Chiusarella has been renovated to high standards with modern comforts; it is now for those who wish to enjoy the relaxing calm of the Chianti countryside in luxury and style. It is ideal for family groups or friends ‘get together's’.

Chiusarella boasts a large patio area perfect for 'aperitivo al fresco'. A long wooden table sits under an extensive porch where breakfast or dinner may be taken, perhaps cooked on the large barbecue? Lunch may also be taken here, shaded from the midday sun or under the shade at the poolside terrace.

The house is built in traditional 'Tuscan' style, stone with brick surrounds in doorways and openings. Chestnut beams and terracotta ceilings complete the scene. Elegantly and tastefully decorated and furnished, the house is light and airy. For chilly nights there are fireplaces in the television room, living room and kitchen to cosy up to.

The Villa offers all the modern conveniences of Internet access, Wi-Fi, 55” T.V., DVD player and Bose ‘Soundtouch’ music system.

All but one of the bedrooms is on the upper floor, accessed by one flight of stairs. Each has the use of its own bathroom and there are insect screens on all the windows so fresh air can be had without uninvited guests. Ceiling fans and air-conditioning are also installed.

Around the house are many seating areas from which to enjoy the views over San Gusmè, and the Chianti to the towers of Siena. To the South 'Le Crete', the famous Tuscan hills beloved of photographers and artists, (a UNESCO world heritage site).

Surrounded by the forest, binoculars and cameras are a must for spotting birds, deer, porcupines and other wildlife.

Chiusarella's guests have exclusive use of the whole premises and grounds during their stay.

Beautiful Tuscan property and well located!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of eight adults had a great stay at Chiusarella and completely enjoyed the villa and all the extra amenities including the local wine, olive oil and welcome basket. Loved the bathrobes on each bed when we arrived - once of the extra special touches that made the experience fantastic. Gaia is the best! She greeted us upon arrival and provided invaluable information during our stay. The villa views are stunning especially for sunsets over the hilltops. Beds and bedrooms were all very comfortable and kitchen is extremely well equipped for your culinary pursuits. Gaia arranged to have a chef cook for us in the villa. A true highlight to the stay! We explored all the major hilltops towns in Tuscany by rented van from this villa so location is quite good. It is in the Chanti Classico region with good access to major highways to Siena and hilltop towns via town of Castelneuvo and San Guesme. Although not quite warm enough for the pool, the pool and pool side terraces were beautiful and views spectacular.. Well worth the short climb up the hill but bring all your beverages and food up with you. Grills available up at pool and on lower terrace by villa. Villa is about about a 15 minute drive via the main road. The drive into the Villa on Arceno estate grounds are on gravel roads but worth the drive for the privacy and beautiful views. I highly recommend this villa and we plan to return soon!

A beautiful location with stunning views of Tuscany valley and bell tower in town of San Gusme

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Chiusarella and completely enjoyed the villa and all the extra amenities including the wine and welcome basket which saved us an evening trip out on our 1st night. Views are stunning especially for sunsets over the hilltops. Beds and bedrooms were all very comfortable and kitchen is extremely well equipped for your culinary pursuits. We explored all the major hilltops towns in Tuscany by rented van from this villa so location is quite good. It is in the Chanti Classico region with good access to major highways to Siena and hilltop towns via town of Castelneuvo. Although not quite warm enough for the pool, the pool and pool side terraces were beautiful and views spectacular.. Well worth the short climb up the hill but bring all your beverages and food up with you. Grills available up at pool and on lower terrace by villa. Walk into San Gusme is very steep, up and down so we chose not to walk it. About a 15 minute drive via the main road. The drive into the Villa on Arceno estate grounds are on gravel roads and a bit further than we expected (about 10 minutes on gravel roads) but worth the drive for the privacy and beautiful views.

Beautiful Tuscan property and well located!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in an amazing location. We loved the infinity pool up on the hill stocked with wine, snacks, towels and a shower. Villa stocked with many amenities and wine. We loved being able to walk to the darling Tuscan town of San Gusme for dinner several nights. Only a 15 min walk. Gaia was wonderful. She helped us find the grocery store nearby, and they had a wonderful butcher in the store. Several grills on the property. We grilled often. Can't say enough about this beautiful property. We rented cars and visited Florence twice, and visited Seina, and Montepuciano!!! We would HIGHLY recommend this property!!!

A Slice of Heaven in Chianti

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chiusarella in August and could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. Besides the house and grounds being impeccably maintained and appointed, the property itself is situated in the spectacular Villa Arceno, an historic 2,000 acre wine estate filled with Cyprus alleys, grape and olive vineyards and miles of "strada bianchi" (white roads) perfect for walking, running and biking.

From the moment we were met upon arrival by the house manager to the last day of our month-long residency, we were impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism of the staff. Every request was met with a smile, and they helped us arrange winery tours, dinners, bocce outings, transportation...and even an apartment rental on the main square in Siena for viewing the Palio horse race.

The house itself is charming and comfortable for 8 people, with countless amenities including a large fully-equipped kitchen, an exquisite terrace for al fresco dining, reliable wifi, air conditioners (in bedrooms), two great outdoor barbecue grills and unlimited supply of local wine. The bedrooms all have comfortable king beds (including one that can be separated into twins) and adequate clothing storage. Bathrooms are spacious, furnished with hair dryers and bath products, and there was enough hot water for everyone to shower. Although getting there requires a short uphill hike on gravel path, the pool area offers spectacular vistas, an annex with full kitchen and bathroom as well as ample seating for sunbathing, lounging and eating. Simply stated, no detail was missed when the owners furnished this property.

While we spent much of our time in and around the house and the idyllic Arceno estate, we also got to know Castelnuovo Berardenga, a charming nearby (10 minute drive) town of decent size with several restaurants, a bike shop, two supermarkets, a pharmacy and of course a gelato shop. Also, a short but steep walking trail from the house through the forest leads to San Gusme, a hilltop hamlet that has a post office, a few trattorias, a small charcuterie and looks just like a movie set. Overall, the location of the property offers close access to great restaurants, excellent wineries and authentic medieval towns...but at the same time is off the beaten path, tucked deeply away among the vineyards.

We have rented many houses in Tuscany over the years and I would say this property combines the best of all of them.

Amazing property in a picture perfect location.Beautiful historic stone house with modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed two weeks at Chiusarella and it was an experience we will never forget. The entire property is truly amazing! The historic stone house is set in a picturesque location surrounded by vineyards and olive trees as one would expect in the Tuscan countryside. The home is beautifully renovated on the inside with all the modern amenities one could want. Beautiful kitchen, countless rooms, and Wi-Fi throughout. The layout of the home works well for a single-family or multiple. Many indoor and outdoor places to get together or to sneak away and relax alone with an espresso or glass of wine and a good book.

The gorgeous infinity pool is set apart from the main house with a fabulous well-equipped pool house and unbelievable views of the surrounding countryside and nearby medieval town of San Gusme which is just a short drive or walk from the house. There you can find several fabulous restaurants, a small store, gelateria and a post office.

The location is perfect! Just remote enough to feel like you are away from it all, although just minutes from several Tuscan hillside towns, restaurants and castles, and minutes away from Siena.

We are so grateful for the hospitality provided by Arceno Rentals throughout our stay. The attention to detail including a welcome basket of gourmet food and wine was much appreciated. The endless supply of amazing house wine was a very nice touch as well.

Traveling in a foreign country with small children can be daunting. We are extremely grateful to Gaia, concierge for the property, for helping us with reservations and arrangements, advice for daytrip's, and everything in between.

In a word, spectacular! Without a doubt, we will return to Chiusarella with our family. We have been home for two weeks and miss it already…

Location

Car: necessary

Famous for food and wine there are many places to go, to discover the flavours of Chianti. As passive or active participants, you may either eat and drink the local produce or take cooking lessons or learn about wine making at source. The active may play a round of golf or go horse riding. There are thermal spas or the seaside should a fun day out be preferred. Packed full of history and art, an almost endless list of galleries, exhibitions, museums, churches, palaces and other secrets only the locals know await to be discovered.

San Gusmè is a short walk from Chiusarella on a path leading through the forest, over a brook. Have lunch, coffee or eveb dinner at one of the local bars and restaurants and admire the view towards Siena and the ‘Torre del Mangia’.

A favourite restaurant is ‘La Bottega del Trenta’ in Villa a Sesta for a fantastic fine food experience and a warm welcome by Hélène the owner.

One of the main events in Siena is the famous ���Palio’ horse race held annually on 2nd July and the 16th August. If visiting Siena around these dates Arceno Rentals Club can arrange the purchase of tickets, for an ‘unparalleled experience'!

From the poolside at Chiusarella there are fantastic views towards the famous Crete, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Monte Amiata the highest peak in the area. A car is necessary to travel around and all areas of the estate are reached by ‘strade bianche’, unpaved roads. Although most are public these roads are quiet, allowing walking, cycling and jogging in peace.

The region is stuffed with history, art, food and wine and with Italy’s excellent road network, Florence, San Giminiano, le Crete, Pienza, Montalcino, Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio and Todi are within easy reach for day trips.

A car is necessary to get about but the nearest village, San Gusme can be accessed by foot along a pathway leading from Chiusarella to San Gusmè. All areas of the estate are reached by ‘strade bianche’, literally, white roads which are unpaved. Although most are public these roads are quiet, allowing walking, cycling and jogging in peace.

With Italy’s excellent road network, in Tuscany Florence, San Giminiano, le Crete, Pienza, Montalcino, Cortona, Arezzo and in Umbria Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio and Todi are within easy reach for day trips.
