The moment we arrive, we were immediately attended by the receptionist who showed us to our room. The views outside our room is amazing!
Room looks a bit quirky with HUGE bathroom! I mean huge! A great jacuzzi and the rain shower area is great. Simple and easy. But the toilet has this swinging door which we find it pretty irritating.
I wish I could unpluck the swinging door!
Wifi is atrocious, you can hardly get it moving even though you're hook on, it feels like back when you dial in for internet.
Dinner is fantastic! The owner makes it a point to cook for our group of 11. No menu but the course keeps coming. I was so full by the time she serve us grilled veal, but it was so good, I clean up my plate!
Similarly no electric flask for you to boil water (I think is just not Italian style to drink hot water often). If you dial for it, they do come but takes a while...
Breakfast only has plain yoghurt with some cereal but you can order any types of eggs from the kitchen.
Overall, food is good but we don't feel too comfortable with our room 111 and wifi has to improve!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The pleasure of Tuscany Fifteen elegant rooms and a gourmet restaurant made out an ancient oil-mill: that is La Chiusa, a characteristic and intimate place to stay in Montefollonico, a countryside guest house immersed into the Sienna province hills. We are in Tuscany , between Pienza and Montepulciano, on the ridge which divides Val D'Orcia and Crete Senesi. In the early 70's we pioneered to dedicate our lives to host in this part of the Tuscan countryside. We attended, several years later, the opening of the very firsts local guests houses and the rising of the Tuscan holidays as a must. Unconsciousness, determination or just by chance? We do not know exactly what led us up here. Without any doubt a common and unconditioned passion for scents and aromas, for the tasteful extra virgin olive oil, for Sangiovese wines, salami and cheese of our Siennese land together with the devotion for the ancient culinary learning handed down from mother to daughter as the old land cultivation techniques passed on from father to son. But what mainly spurred us on stepping forward was the confidence that people would soon or later certainly get back to appreciate simplicity and what our definition of hospitality is. Almost forty years later we are proud to say that we were right. Hospitality at La Chiusa not only means to open our house's doors to the guests, but to share with them our passion through the knowledge of our country. ... more less
