“Best Time of our lives - best wedding on earth”
Reviewed 14 February 2017 for a stay in May 2016

While I would love to be selfish and keep this amazing place to myself, the magic of the place would not be the same without the hosts and their amazing kindness and hospitality. This review intends to be a fair opinion on the villa and the premises and in gratitude of the heartfelt hospitality we received during our stay at Villa Chieteno.

My wife and I were looking for a villa to welcome our respective families and friends flying from France, Canada, Monaco, Germany and Africa and celebrate our wedding in May 2016.
We found the villa on Internet through Linda who was very helpful giving the right information and help us deciding this would be the right venue (map of floors with rooms, number of beds, bathrooms and all accommodations the villa offers).

We took a weekend to visit the villa in February 2016, and check the grounds. That's when we met the host and villa owner, Beatrice.

It took only a few minutes and we knew that the Villa was the right place and that we were in good hands with Beatrice, she's very sweet, straight talker, competent and would do anything to make sure our stay and our wedding would be the best day in our lives. She prepared a trial dinner of what she could prepare for our wedding diner, it turned out to be an amazing culinary experience. Bea is an amazing chef, and she also cooks dessert! Every dish tasted so fresh, well balanced, with quality ingredients, a perfect blend of home food and finesse found only in gourmet and high cuisine restaurants. Would Bea have a restaurant, she'd earn her stars without a doubt.

While our 25 guests arrived at the villa, Bea and Linda helped a lot securing spots for the other 45 guests in neighboring villas or hotels. By the way, some stayed at Palazzo Bello which is also owned by Bea's family and our friends loved their stay.
Villa Chieteno turned out to be very comfortable and cozy, much more than the initial rustic look may suggest. Weather last May was cooler than usual and because we had a few babies and elderly as part of the guests, the heating provided proved very efficient and comfortable. The beds and linens all very new and fresh looking. The kitchens are all equipped for families to dine in their respective apartments when needed and enough champagne glasses to accommodate the many spontaneous parties that took place during the week.

I will not comment to the villa and the surroundings apart from saying the scenery and views are just out of this world. I will note the highways a few miles away which can be heard when the wind blows inward, but it is far enough to remain a very very distant sound and will not spoil a quite day chilling at the villa.

The pool side is magic, the fields are magic, the smell of the forrest and all the surrounding flowers is magic, the villa architecture is perfect, the landscaping is well balanced and not overdone.

We held a three day celebration, Bea prepared a pasta night with 4 types of pasta for +30 persons. The main dining room proved sufficient to welcome such a large number as the rain forced us inside. For a welcome night, all our guests were flabbergasted by the quality and tastefulness of the dishes. We even had a trio of panacotta for dessert which were very tasty and light.
The rehearsal dinner took place in nearby Citta Della Pieve, at restaurant Coppeta, as suggested by Bea. The restaurant is a very wel known local venue, full of local crowd and turned out to be a blast. Fantastic food, wine and very very good service for such a large group of 40 people.

Linda has helped a lot too, working her vast network of local business people and friends and organized a tour of the Ravazzi winery for us.
The owner, Roberta, prepared a tour and wine tasting with matching local cheese and cuts. Our guests were so happy, many grabbed a few bottles to bring back home some of the magic of the moment.

The wedding day and the following day were very busy comprising of the wedding celebration, the cocktail, the dinner, the party, the midnight table and the next morning brunch.
Due to the larger turnout of guests at our wedding than previously expected, we relied on a local supplier for the catering under the strict supervision of Bea for the food preparation and service. Both worked very well delivering the same tasty food we had tried at a much smaller scale at Beatrice place a few months earlier.

All venues were successes in large thanks to Bea and Linda's help. Only them know the villa so well to provide the best support, the best accessory, be it the outside lamps and candles, the right place to plug speakers, cocktail tables, ice buckets, coordinate the waiters with the ceremony schedule and speakers.... their contribution to our wedding was essential and key and today we are so grateful for them being so generous and competent.

I will conclude saying that Villa Chieteno is a magic place, you can come and enjoy it simply and Linda and Bea will make sure you have all the privacy you are looking for or, hold an event as important as an 80 people wedding and, most importantly a milestone life event, Linda and Bea will be up to the challenge to make it a world class event for you and your guests.

For the rest of my life I will be grateful for Villa Chieteno, Beatrice and Linda, may you enjoy it as much as we did and preserve the authenticity of this place.

“just like in the movies; wonderful facilities and views”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Absolutely top notch; every apartment was complete with kitchen and washroom; outdoor pool, covered area to eat outside and large room to eat inside. We were a large group of 16 people and never felt crowded. Bea., the host, speaks English and is very accommodating.

We can't say enough good things about the villa or Bea.

“Dream Come True in Tuscany!”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband and I rented this villa to celebrate a milestone birthday with a total of 15 family and close friends and could not have asked for a more wonderful property. Serene, private and quintessentially Tuscan, the villa provided everything we could have asked for...and more! Each room had a private bath and most rooms were set up as one or two bedroom apartments with kitchenettes and living rooms that afforded everyone plenty of room to relax. We also were able to plan a couple of group dinners in the villa, which were extremely memorable - homemade Italian food simply delicious and the villa had both an indoor and outdoor table that could accommodate all of us together comfortably, which was truly special. In addition, we arranged a cooking class at the villa which I would also highly recommend - Chef Beatrice was truly wonderful in every sense of the word! This was the trip of a lifetime with a property that is truly magical. The vistas are postcard beautiful, the property itself incredible and thoughtful innkeepers that are willing to accommodate every request to make your stay simply unforgettable.

“Charming in every way; nice people; much to see nearby”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were warmly greeted upon arrival by the property manager, a charming and most helpful young woman who immediately set the tone and made us feel very welcome with her contagious smile and sparkling eyes – in addition to her language skills: Italian, English, and French. There are two well-maintained properties on this magnificent estate named "Villa Palazzo Bello" and "Villa Chieteno" – old renovated farm houses - and they are both superb. The describing words are: quiet, spectacular views, clean, comfortable, bucolic, peaceful, surrounded by fields of sunflowers and various other crops, flowers everywhere, etc. The location couldn’t be better as Cetona is only 3 km away and there are several other medieval villages to visit less than an hour away. We have happy memories of our wonderful vacation at this most attractive estate; it exceeded our expectations. These properties are ideal for groups such as family reunions, corporate gatherings, weddings, and small professional conventions. I highly recommend these properties!!! Sylvain C., Naples, Florida

“Idyllic!”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We spent a week here in September 2014. It was part of a month-long holiday in Italy and this was by far the best part of that month! The villas are 250-year-old buildings restored by a master craftsman in true Tuscan style. The furniture was comfortable and chosen to blend with the decor. Having a kitchen to cook in worked very well for us. We loved the proximity to the charming towns of Cetona and Chiusi as well as the many hill towns in the area, both Tuscan and Umbrian. The property is so peaceful and the pool was exquisite with a lovely view off through fields of sunflowers. Our hostess, Beatrice Cordeschi was a delight. We will return again I am sure.

“Comfortable, convenient, stunning panoramic views, all-round BEST!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

My husband and I rented this villa for 2 weeks in July 2013; we rented the full property, for up to 20 guests (we had between 11 and 16 each of the two weeks). I had stayed in 6 other villas in Tuscany, and loved each visit--but this was by far the nicest villa, with the best views, the best pool, the most comfortable rooms, the most convenient location...I cannot rave enough! There are individual apartments for some guests, each with their own small kitchens. The main floor is like a lodge--warm and comfortable, and so easy and pleasant to live in. The panoramic view from wherever you are are breathtaking--the best of Tuscany. The pool is large and inviting. The location is ideal--10 minutes to the train station, a short drive to my favorite towns--Pienza, Monelpulciano, Montelcino, Siena; an easy train or drive to Florence. We plan to return often. All our guests said it was the best holiday of their lives. We feel the same! Owner Beatric Cordeschi cannot be more helpful or more gracious. We splurged and hired a chef for 10 or the 14 nights--and were so happy to have done this. Cuocoadomicilio (www.cuocoadomicilio.info) sent us chef Giorgio Di Vulolo and his assistant Loredana Bosco--who were applauded each night by our guests; the food was Tuscan and fabulous. Truly the vacation of a lifetime--a villa to visit over and over again.
