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.

The views from the hotel are absolutely stunning. However, the accommodations desperately need updating and routine maintenance. On the first night of our stay, we did not have air conditioning that worked properly and the temperatures were in the mid-80’s with exceptionally high humidity. The...More
We only dined at this establishment. The room exuded charm galore, the service was superb, the food delicious and artfully presented , and the owner/chef Dania was pleasantly attentive. Don’t miss this spot.
Not only the food and wine are excellent, as carefully recommended by the very competent staff but the welcoming by the owner and his fellow Ousmane are worth the distance.
Such welcoming is one of the best piece of Tuscany.
Go there without hesitation, and...More
