Overview

Il Villino is a splendidly restored farmhouse that sits on a round hilltop not far from Lake Trasimeno and Chiusi on the Tuscan-Umbrian border. Extremely comfortable and filled with artistic touches, the house is decorated in a colourful blend of contemporary furniture and antiques, and filled with luxuries such as air-conditioned bedrooms [under floor cooling system], a jacuzzi, a steam shower, a small gym and a serious cook's kitchen. There are shady outdoor sitting and dining areas attached to both the house and a beautifully furnished pool house. The fan-shaped pool is set into an impeccably maintained lawn, with endless views of a gently rolling landscape. There is something to please everyone in this area: villages and castles to explore, a lake for boating and windsurfing, wineries and fine foods, a selection of world class golf courses, and even a semi-annual jazz festival.

Clients reviews

We have travelled to Italy many times but this is the first time we have rented a Villa. The experience was amazing. Tuscany Now set up everything for us and constantly communicated with us before the trip; they answered all our concerns, questions and suggested needs, promptly and confidently. The Villa, IL Villino was everything the web site promised and more. Great location, great staff to help us and the views were pure Tuscany. The first night we had Dinner cooked for us and everyone really loved it. The Villa was driving distance to many great towns and cities. We will definitely use Tuscany Now again and have already recommended it to some friends.

It's the most wonderful place and excellent place to host a family event: we had three generations all under the same roof - aged from 18 months to 71 . The ambiance was beautiful and having a housekeeper just helped. Anna the chef put a feast on for my special birthday - it's was bellissimo, a five course feast - the pizza night was fun for all generations. The villa is stunning and with 12 of us in the house there was plenty of room - stunning views. Belinda the owner was very helpful, sourced us wonderful restaurants. The villa location was fantastic - easy to get to Cortona and Siena. If you have a special event it's an ideal place and it will leave a magical impression - the villa has charm but with a homely feel to it. I cannot recommend it enough.

I celebrated my 60th with family and friends. Il Villino was excellent - and in a great location with superb views. The swimming pool was a delight after visiting local villages and coming back for a swim to cool off.. Great help from Maria and Anna with catering - a fabulous outdoor eating area - we ate outside for dinner and breakfast almost every evening and morning - and if you don't feel like cooking - have it catered. Table set - meal cooked - and dishes cleared away - fantastic service. We would definitely return!

Rented this villa during late April. This was our 2nd rental with Tuscany Now and highly recommend them. This villa and our stay was outstanding. Our party of 8 included our 3 married children and spouses for their first trip to Tuscany and they were very pleased with the accommodations. We did not use chefs but the kitchen was well equipped for all our cooking needs. There is a convenient grocery store and a restaurant in nearby town (1 mile). Villa lived up to photos. On site staff was delightful. Location was great for visiting hill towns in southern Tuscany and Umbria. Easy drive to Siena. Villa is very private and has great views. Would definitely rent again.

I am computer illiterate, but found Tuscany Now by chance, and what a lucky chance it was! From the first "ohs and ahs" for the beauty of the villa, the scenery, the well appointed decor, the site in the Tuscan countryside ( so close to so many memorable towns), to the final sad farewell to Maria...we thoroughly enjoyed our week at "Il Villino". We were 5 couples from Florida, California, Wisconsin, and Australia ranging in age from 40's-70's and we all agreed that we all had the best vacation ever! Can't wait to return to "Il Villino".

Thank you for sharing your home with us, it is beautiful and has countryside to match. We enjoyed our days out exploring Umbria and Tuscany. Anna is an absolute delight and we had fun communicating with her - knowing very little Italian a lot of sign language

The location was perfect for day trips, the house itself was more beautiful than the photos, the pool was just perfect and the kitchen is a cook's kitchen.

I don’t know where to begin. There are not enough adjectives to describe our incredible, amazing, unforgettable experience with Tuscany Now and for the villa, Il Villino. Tuscany Now was extremely organized, professional and responsive throughout the entire process of selection, payment, trip planning and the never ending details to execute on a dream vacation for 24 people in Italy. Il Villino was beyond any expectation we could have dreamed of. Il Villino is an elegant, lovely home and it felt like we were staying as guests of very good friends. The spaciousness of the bedroom suites, the professional kitchen, the beautiful grounds, the incredible views, the delightful pool and the outside loggia provided the perfect setting for our family and friends. We held a wedding ceremony on the grounds and had a catered fabulous feast outside. It looked like a movie set, absolutely perfect in every way. We would love to return for a month! Thanks for everything you did for us. We look forward to renting with you again soon!

We liked verything. The views, rooms, great kitchen, there was nothing we were even the slightest bit unhappy about. The house is even better than the description in the catalogue. It takes your breath away. Pool house was a serious plus, had almost all meals out there every day. Grounds are very well kept. Just a beautiful property.

The surrounding countryside was stunning. The luxuriousness of the villa itself was delightful. The feeling was "We get to stay in this beautiful home? Wow!" The owners Belinda and Paulo were great people and a lot of fun. You were great and your properties are very impressive. The brochure made it difficult to choose; everything was inticingly beautiful.
