About the Villa. This ancient farmhouse has been completely renovated to exacting standards. It is comprised of 6 apartments with 10 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. It is situated in the country, about 1 Km down a winding gravel road (not suitable for low riding cars) and offer the best of all worlds in Tuscany, removed from the chaos of the big cities, but close enough to both the Autostrada and the Express Trains to get you to Florence, Siena or Rome in about an hour. There is a beautiful private swimming pool located for maximum sun and views of the unspoiled countryside. In addition, there are many charming small towns nearby to explore and truly experience the charms of Tuscany..

Getting There. The Villa can be reached by car from the A1 Autostrada or by car or taxi from the train station in nearby Chiusi.

From the Autostrada. Take the A1 Autostrada to the Chiusi/Chianciano Terme exit (the exit past Fabro when arriving from Rome). After paying toll (which you can do with a credit card in the designated lane if you do not want to use your cash) come through the toll booth and go right at the stopsign in the direction of Chiusi. Follow that road for a short distance until you see a turn off on the right for Cetona (SP20 is the road #). Go right and travel 5.1 km until it ends. Go right again onto SS321 in the direction of Cetona. Travel 2.5 km (just 15 feet past the stop sign that will be on your right which isn’t for you but for traffic merging onto the road that you are on) and then go left in the direction of Piazze. This turn is completely blind and comes up immediately after you see the stop sign. So slow to a stop and be prepared to turn as soon as you see the stop sign. Travel approximately 4 km until you see a small yellow sign on your left that says “Chieteno”. This is where you will turn. It will be a sharp turn back to the left and straight uphill (stay in 1st gear) on a gravel road. The road will turn right and continue up hill. When you arrive at the top it will seem to dead end into another house. Continue following the road around to the left and follow the yellow signs (there are about 5 of them in total) approximately 1 km to the villa. When you arrive you will see a line of covered parking spaces. This is where you will park your car.

From Chiusi Train Station. As you face the train station, take the road in front of the station to the right (SS321). Continue straight ahead following the signs for Cetona. Once over the bridge for the A1 Autostrada, go 2.5 km (immediately past the stop sign). Go left in the direction of Piazze/San Casciano de Bagni (also the SS321). Travel approximately 4 km until you see a small yellow sign on your left that says “Chieteno”. This is where you will turn. It will be a sharp turn back to the left and straight uphill (stay in 1st gear) on a gravel road. The road will turn right and continue up hill. When you arrive at the top it will seem to dead end into another house. Continue following the road around to the left and follow the yellow signs (there are about 5 of them in total) approximately 1 km to the villa. When you arrive you will see a line of covered parking spaces. This is where you will park your car.

Heat in Italy. Heat is very expensive in Italy and is, amazingly, controlled by the government. You will be asked to pay for the cost of any fuel to run the heaters in your apartment if necessary. This is the case wherever you travel in Tuscany.

Water in Tuscany. If you are traveling in Tuscany in the peak summer months of July and August, you should be aware that water during these periods is very precious and you should not waste it. In a few instances, there may be shortages as the water comes directly from an underground well. It is safe to drink, but as a practice you should use bottled water whenever possible

I took the directions Tamara gave and put them through Google Translate into Italian. I think that will be sufficient to give a taxi driver. I sure hope so.
