Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We rented the Montauto house for two weeks with extended family. One of the most wonderful stays we have ever had. This Tuscan farmhouse, which used to be the family home of Benedetta Origo (one of Iris Origo's daughters), is spacious, grand in proportion, and has a beautiful flow to it. The kitchen is a warm gathering place for all meals, al fresco dining and lounging options abound, from the courtyard to the front terrace, and everywhere you walk you're hit with the scent of lavender or Tuscan rosemary. The pool is large and cool, and beautifully sited steps from the house with dramatic views of the Orcia valley and Mount Amiata, a dormant volcano, in the distance. The daily housekeeping and optional chef, who prepared home cooked Tuscan dinners for on some of the nights, were wonderful. And it's only a short drive up the hill from Dopolavoro, a wonderful local restaurant, as well as the wine regions of Montalcino and Montepulciano, and the towns of Pienza and Siena, all worth a day trip. We cannot recommend this place enough.

My Husband & I held our wedding at the breathtaking Villa La Foce on Saturday May 31st, 2014. We really wanted to hold a wedding that reflected us perfectly as a couple - we envisioned something elegant & classic, yet rustic & relaxed - & above all, fun!
We chose Italy because it is our favourite country in the entire world & having shared many magical times there previously, it made perfect sense to share the most special day of our lives there as well.

Upon our first visit to the 15th century La Foce estate (of the remarkable Iris & Antonio Origo), which extends over the hills overlooking the Val d'Orcia, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), we fell hopelessly in love with it's monumental beauty, breathtaking gardens & rich & evocative history.

There is a quote I once read, "The precise location of Heaven on Earth has never been established but it may very well be right here." - this could very easily be applied to La Foce.

Moving from London to Singapore in the middle of wedding planning definitely presented us with a few challenges along the way... However, Benedetta Isidori, the incredible woman who is in charge of all reservations & events at La Foce, greeted us with open arms & so kindly (& patiently) assisted us throughout our planning process - right up to the morning of the wedding day itself & the days following. Over the course of nearly 18 months, Benedetta's generosity, knowledge, warmth & care enabled us to create our dream wedding weekend at La Foce & in the surrounding Val d'Orcia area. Benedetta has always made us feel like family - we are forever grateful to her for everything.

We rented Villa La Foce exclusively for 4 days - this allowed us the privacy we required & the ability to host festivities for our guests in the lead up to the wedding day. We arrived a week prior to the arrival of our guests, staying in a charming apartment in La Foce's Casa del Bersagliere. My family stayed in La Foce's gorgeous B&B, Il Palazzolo.
Our wedding party stayed with us in the main Villa, whilst our other wedding guests stayed in some of the stunning hotel options close by (including our favourite Monteverdi in Castiglioncello del Trinoro - a stunning boutique hotel that is part of a village: with cobbled medieval streets, & an ancient church).

Unfortunately the weather was colder than it should have been for late May/early June - however, 12 months earlier had seen a huge amount of unseasonal rain, so we were lucky that the rain was mainly holding off (with only a few very light showers throughout the week). The temperature varied - it could get very warm during the day when the sun was out, but then incredibly cool & quite cold in the evenings. Fortunately we had advised our guests to pack something warm for the evenings.
This sporadic weather prompted us, at the very last minute, to arrange a marquee with heaters for the dinner reception (a decision that saved the night as the temperature dropped to a record low).
Our ceremony & aperitivo were to be held entirely outdoors, so there was no real back-up plan in the event of rain. We simply had to hope & pray that the weather would be kind to us. We were incredibly blessed, as there was some very light rainfall in the morning, but the sun was shining by mid-afternoon & the rain stayed away throughout the rest of the day. We were exceptionally lucky!
Fortunately this made for some truly stunning lighting for our incredibly talented cinematographer Matteo Castelluccia (an absolute genius & master at his craft - so exceptionally stunning & magical cinematography - there is no doubt that he is the very best) & our immensely talented photographer Jules to work with.
From the very first moment I stumbled across Jules' unbelievably beautiful work, I knew he was the photographer we needed to perfectly capture our wedding. Jules knows Tuscany - & he knows La Foce - so his combined knowledge of the landscape, the light, the vantage points, & his calm, professional manner created photographs that not only did La Foce's overwhelming beauty true justice, but also reflected the magic of our day absolutely perfectly.
As soon as I contacted Jules & he agreed to work with us, I felt a wave of relief (& possibly a little smugness...) knowing that I had managed to secure the most sought-after wedding photographer in Tuscany. Jules is also incredibly patient & kind. There was a moment when I was getting ready for the ceremony, & suddenly I was overcome with emotion...a few tears started welling up - Jules put the camera down & immediately handed me a glass of Prosecco. He made me smile & he made me feel completely at ease. Jules' photos are honestly breathtaking. He has an ability to capture every emotion, every magical detail, every wonderful feeling & bring it to life through a single photograph. We are still overwhelmed when looking through our wedding photos. I will certainly be asking Jules & Matteo Castelluccia to photograph & film any special events we hold in the future.

Benedetta has always provided us with many brilliant options for lunches & dinners in renaissance and medieval gems such as Pienza, Montepulciano, & Monticchiello (her knowledge is second-to-none), so we had an array of divine restaurants to choose from whilst hosting our guests throughout the week.

We held a welcome party for our 90 guests on the Friday evening at Villa La Foce's Fountain Court - this was catered for by the exceptional team at Il Dopolavoro (La Foce's own restaurant which is managed by the wonderful Katia Lysy - Antonio and Iris Origo's Granddaughter) led by the amazing Asia Chirdo. We knew the food would be incredible (Il Dopolavoro never disappoints), but the extent that Asia went to to create such a sumptuous feast was beyond our expectations. Asia went above & beyond when setting everything up for us - it was truly incredible, so beautiful, & we were unbelievably grateful to her. It was a brilliant evening, & such a wonderful way to welcome everyone to Villa La Foce!

At 6.00pm on the Saturday, we held our wedding ceremony in the formal garden enclosed by a wall of cypress trees. Our ceremony was Officiated by Diane Rossi from Blessings from Italy. Diane guided us throughout our planning process - together with Diane's Husband Giuseppe, we felt so at ease from the very first moment we spoke to them both. Diane became a wonderful friend & confidant to us. The support & guidance we were given was priceless. We are forever grateful to Diane for conducting such a truly memorable, heartfelt & beautiful service - we simply could not have imagined anyone else marrying us.

The aperitivo followed in the Lemon Garden overlooking the Formal Garden before the dinner in a crystal marquee under the stars. Thanks to the exceptional tunes, lights & atmosphere created by the incredibly talented DJ Francis Jay from Danceparty Organizza la tua festa!, there was dancing until the early hours of the morning inside the historic Limonaia for the after-party.

On the Sunday we invited our guests to join us in discussing the previous night's debauchery over a very relaxed lunch on the terrace of Oreade Risorante at Monteverdi in Castiglioncello del Trinoro - a tiny jewel of a Tuscan medieval village perched high above the valley.
There were many sore heads by that point, but the mouth-watering unpretentious yet delicious food, panoramic view, & warm, welcoming (& knowing) smile immediately comforted us all.
In all honesty, this is one of our favourite restaurants in the world.

Our wedding was exactly as we had imagined & more. It was a dream come true & was the most magical, romantic & exciting day of our lives. We could not have achieved this without the kindness, patience, generosity & constant support from such an exceptional & world-class team: Benedetta Isidori, Katia Lysy, Asia Chirdo & the wonderful team at La Foce & Il Dopolavoro, our Photographer Jules (Julian Bower), our Videographer Matteo Castelluccia, our masterful Florist Nadia from Stiatti Fiori, our amazing Caterers Galateo Ricevimenti (from Florence), our fabulous DJ Francis Jay from Danceparty Organizza la tua festa!, our brilliant Wedding Officiant (& now friend) Diane Rossi from Blessings From Italy, the highly talented Samanta Romagnoli from Sam's Parrucchieri in Chianciano Terme, & (last but by no means least) the truly beautiful, patient & knowledgeable Annette Bontke who was a guide & source of inspiration, assisted us from the very beginning of our planning & who magnificently co-ordinated on the wedding day itself.

We look forward to returning to the beauty, romance & magic that is Tuscany & La Foce as much as possible - it really is Heaven on Earth.

We spent the last week of September 2006 at La Foce, renting the Santa Maria villa. It accommodates 6 - 7 people very comfortably, with three ensuite bedrooms, a sitting room, living room with fireplace, and a wonderfully warm, inviting, and fully equipped kitchen/dining room. The house is rather isolated, about 4.7 km from the main road, which is nice if you are a noisy group or just want a very quiet and peaceful retreat; as a consequence, a car is necessary. La Foce is close to many of the hill towns of Tuscany: Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Chiusi, and several hot springs, but it is only a short drive to larger towns, such as Siena, Cortona, Orvieto, Assissi, and the Chianti Road area (it never took us more than an hour to drive anywhere from La Foce). The Abbey church of Sant'Antimo and Chiusi's Museo Nazionale Etrusco are must-see places. The house, which is tucked into the woods, overlooks the Val d'Orcia valley and Monte Amiata (a view I never tired of) and the private, clean (but unheated), swimming pool. Fig and cypress trees, rosemary and lavendar bushes, potted flowers, herbs, and plants are everywhere. The vine covered pergola, which runs along the entire length of the house, is the perfect place to sit at any hour of the day, from morning coffee to the last glass of wine in the evening. Just off the kitchen, is the loggia with a wood burning pizza oven and a comfortable sitting area. The house is well furnished (plus TV, phones, hair dryers, w/d, d/w, iron), and the price includes a lady who comes in every day for two hours to clean or cook, if you provide the ingredients. One can fill up busy days visiting all Tuscany has to offer, then return to quiet, enjoyable evenings at Santa Maria. La Foce's host, Benedetta, speaks perfect English, and once a week invites everyone staying in the various villas and apartments to a private tour of the gardens followed by a friendly reception. Our favorite restaurant was Osteria Del Conte, Via di San Donato 19, in Montepulciano, but the little place at the entrance to La Foce, was also very good. (My favorite food was the Tuscan Zuppa (soup), which was consistently good everywhere.) While we bought many items in Montepulciano, we liked Cortona for its variety of shopping.

We stayed in one of the villas at LaFoce in the fall of 2001, with two other couples. It was FABULOUS! The house was comfortable and charming, and a maid came in each day to clean and make beds. She was also available to cook, and oh, what a cook she was! The grounds were lovely (fragrant rosemary bushes everywhere), and there was a private pool and poolhouse. La Foce is situated in southern Tuscany, an easy drive to some of the lovliest towns in Tuscany - Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena, San Gimignano. It is also within an easy drive to western Umbria, including Assisi and Orvieto. The view from our villa was absolutely breathtaking. And although there are a number of other villas and apartments on the estate, our villa was completely private - you'd never know there was anyone else nearby. All of this, and at an affordable price; sharing this house for a week with 2 or 3 other couples costs less than staying 7 nights at a nice hotel. HIGHLY Recommended!!!

We chose La Foce based on distance from the Chianti region however, after booking our villa we did some research on the area and never felt the need to travel near Chianti. The room was great, we stayed in Casa del Bersagliere. I would highly recomend choosing the option to have a meal waiting for you! Being that it was in the off season we were the only couple at Chiarentana but there is staff and the owners family that reside there but they were seldom seen.
One concern we had was the heating bill that was quoted as possibly being up to 300 Euro. It did get a little cold at night outside but with firewood only costing 15 Euro we heated with it and ended up with a 30 Euro gas bill. We did learn a chilly lesson our first morning, if the heat is not running there is no hot water!
Another item of mention, you will be arriving on Saturday, there is very little open on Sunday so I would suggest leaving immediatly to go get any supplies on Saturday at either the COOP in Chianciano Terme or the PAM between Chianciano Terme and Chiusi. We did not make it back out on Saturday and ended up finding a small grocer in Chianciano Terme in the main road.
The only other advice, utilize the train station in Chiusi to get to Florence and Sienna and know that Benedetta is great for any info on the area, restaraunts, and all of our 'dumb American' question.

A place of extraordinary beauty, with everything in superb taste and presided over by a staff that is genuinely hospitable and knowledgeable. We used it as a base to explore Tuscany, guided by the superb advice of Benedetta, the staff member who oversees the care of guests. Her deep knowledge of the area led us to hilltop towns like Montefollonico, which we might well have missed on our own, as well as to excellent restaurants. La Foce has a very good restaurant just down the road from the estate, which we used both for dinner one night and as the source of excellent take-out food, since our apartment had a well-equipped kitchen. (Another building is a B&B.) One highlight of our stay was a cooking lesson from two outgoing and accomplished women that began in the local market and ended with a multi-course luncheon, including pasta and tiramisu, with leftovers that went into our refrigerator.

La Foce is an estate in southern Tuscany near the famed wine towns of Montalcino and Montepulciano. It has several options for visitors, from small apartments to farm houses. We stayed a week in Castelluccio (the castle) in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. Other travel companions stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment in the castle and another in Chiarentana ("the fortress"). All the apartments had ample cooking kitchens, and sitting rooms. All had fireplaces or heating stoves; ours had a veranda. You can figure out exactly what kind of combination of rooms you need and find it at La Foce.

The views? Wow, including a front door opening out on the world-famous Tuscan winding road lined with Cypress trees.

The offseason rates were exceptional, and the weather was ideal (55-70 F; only one really rainy day). La Foce makes a great base for exploring Tuscany, but you will need a rental car, and a good map. Remember, Tuscany is called "hill country" for a reason. Even short distances take longer then anticipated. The roads are winding and can be confusing, but the locals are friendly and getting lost just means finding another incredible view/town you would have otherwise missed. Assisi and Siena are about the limits of auto day-trips from La Foce; Florence/Firenze proved too far for our party.

The staff at La Foce is quite accommodating, and you can arrange ($) for a first grocery shopping to await you, as well as a first meal. Experienced visitors will enjoy hitting the market on their own, but new visitors will find it makes the first day or two much more relaxing.

There were too many things to see & do to cover here, but do visit the gardens at the main estate, and don't miss the local public hot baths (Terme).

One note: castles are cold (even in summer). Bring some slippers and warm pajamas, as heat is extra and expensive.

My husband and I arrived at dusk on a very foggy night after driving 4 hours from Rome. The La Foce estate seemed like a dream. Our house was just past the castle, Belvedere 1. It was one of the old farmhouses and was very spacious with 3 bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Cheese, salami, bread and wine from a local vineyard waited for us. . We opted for "first shopping" too which meant the fridge was stocked with all the essentials - bread, eggs, butter, coffee, etc.

The house was decorated very tastefully and was in keeping with the rustic, Tuscan appeal of the area. The views were INSANE. Cypress lined roads on crete hills. Lush gardens. Twisted vineyards. It truly was pure heaven.

This is a historic house. Historically noted in the 2nd world war, mainly during the Nazi withdrawel from Italy. The house is there - not open to the public - but there are rooms to rent.

The gardens are lovely. To be there in a place of Italian history. Would suggest you read the book of it's history,prior to visit - 'War in Val d'Orcia'[ A very interesting read if, like me, you have little knowledge
of Italian WW2" history.

A lovely visit.

In March 2014, a friend and I began researching lodging in southern Tuscany. Our dream was to find the "perfect"' place to rent for the entire month of Sept 2015 ... and to invite a group of good friends to join us each of the four weeks ... and to share the cost of the lodging. Happily, our internet search led us to La Foce!

With the extremely capable, prompt and kind assistance of La Foce's amazing rental manager, Benedetta Isidori, we tentatively booked the beautifully restored 5-bedroom farmhouse called Gonzola ... and then promptly "filled" it with friends ... and friends of friends ... 34 happy travelers in all!

Actually, by July 2014 we had so many folks wanting to join us, we needed to reserve "overflow" lodging at La Foce for three of our Sept weeks: The one-bedroom apartment Etrusco in the Castelluccio (a real castle!); two bedrooms with private baths in the lovely Palazzolo Bed & Breakfast; and the spacious & beautiful one-bedroom apartment Fonte in Chiarentana. Everyone was very pleased with their La Foce lodging!

I'm writing this review in October 2015 ... after all 34 of us have returned home (to ten different U.S. states!) from our truly amazing and totally delightful days in the Val d'Orcia. What a beautiful little part of our world this region is and the historic estate of La Foce is a wonderful place from which to explore it.

Check out the description, floor plan and photos of Gonzola on lafoce.com ... they are all extremely accurate, except that the rooms are even larger in real life and the exterior setting even more beautiful! The farmhouse kitchen is very well-equipped and so large that multiple cooks don't get in each other's way. There's even a second "summer" kitchen downstairs by the swimming pool, which was perfect when Elda, the kindly La Foce cook, served our Saturday evening Welcome Dinners, outside under the pergola!

The sunset views from the swimming pool area were spectacular. The "First Shopping" a huge convenience. The washer, dryer and drying racks, very handy perks for our travelers. The Wednesday morning cooking classes with Anna & Sabrina, great fun. The weekly tours of the historic La Foce Gardens, led by the delightful Sibylla Holtz, amazing. The dinners at La Foce's cozy little restaurant, Dopolavoro, delicious!

Gonzola is located less than a 30-minute drive from Chiusi's train station (where many in our group rented cars from Giramondo Car Rental) ... and less than a 2-hour train ride to Florence or Rome. Within an hour's drive of La Foce, there are countless interesting places to visit on day trips: Medieval hill towns (with great restaurants), historic abbeys, Etruscan museums and tombs, free thermal spas and beautiful wineries. Some of us also ventured a bit farther (~2 hours) to explore Assisi, Siena, Volterra and Orvieto. One group of three couples even took a day trip to Rome!

After 18 months of planning, one delightful month spent at La Foce, and a week recovering from jet lag, this Tuscan adventure is about to become a cherished memory. Our Tuscan dream DID come true ... and we discovered the perfect place to live it ... La Foce!

How far is it to Chiusi train station and are there taxis at the station?
Answer from Laurette B
Dear Patrick, How wonderful to plan Christmas 2016 at La Foce! I was there with friends for the month of September 2015 (in the beautiful Gonzola restored farmhouse) and it was fabulous. The Val D'Orcia is so gorgeous ... and unspoiled by any commercial development - it's like driving through the pages of a Tuscan calendar. I'd suggest asking Benedetta Isidori, the rental manager at La Foce, your questions about the weather and garden tour. She will respond promptly. As for the drive from the Chiusi train station to La Foce, I'd suggest renting a car with an excellent GPS & you won't have a problem. Our GPS wasn't so good and we got a bit lost the first time we made that little trip! Be sure to plan a lunch or two at La Porta (in nearby Monticchiello) and dinner at Dopolavoro (on the La Foce estate). The Wednesday morning cooking classes with Anna & Sabriba were outstanding. The Abbey at Sant'Altimo was also one of our favorite day trips. Happy travels, Laurette
