    "peace and quiet in a picturesque corner of the Casentino countryside "

    07/15/2019

    We felt at home in this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse nestled in the forests of Casentino.
    The rooms are furnished with taste and simplicity and the owners are very kind and not intrusive.
    The simple and tasty cuisine is enriched by the fresh products of the garden.
    We certainly recommend it to those seeking a break of serenity and quiet.

    "In an oasis of peace, the exquisite hospitality accompanied by the culture of a cuisine closely linked to the territory. In a word, excellent."

    06/22/2019

    A week of absolute relaxation, with wonderful excursions in the enchanting forests of Casentino where only the singing of birds and the rustling of the leaves of the imposing beech trees were the only noises accompanied by the roar of the streams and the sight of fleeting deer intimidated to our passage.
    If you want to experience nature in its fullness in a simple and satisfying way, the Agriturismo "LaChiusa" is the ideal place.

    "Very relaxing days in a wonderful country inn"

    06/19/2019

    My stay in the country inn La Chiusa was positive throughout. It is wonderfully and quietly located in the heart of Tuscany. If you want to relax and get away from it all, this is the place for you. Also the food from own cultivation was very tasty. I can only recommend this opportunity to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in this region.

    "Agriturismo beautiful and sincere, as I had promised the wooden sign"

    05/06/2019

    The motorbike ride in Tuscany on the bridges of spring for me is an annual joy not to be missed.
    In 2003, making a hairpin bend on the road that leads from Stia to Passo della Calla, I saw with the tail of my eye a beautiful wooden sign.
    I entered the dirt road and found a beautiful and sincere farm, as promised by the wooden sign.
    Biggi and Scipio had just opened at the time.
    Since then, swimming in nature at the La Chiusa holiday farm has become a definite stop on all the subsequent motorbike rides. The last two weeks ago.
    The place is wonderful. The farm has become increasingly beautiful and hospitality is unparalleled.
    I'll see you soon. Richard

    "We were too good, if I think of those days I smile again. Thanks Biggi and Scipio"

    07/12/2018

    We just returned, my husband and I, from that place out of the world. It 'been a fantastic week, relaxing, with the beautiful in the eye, always. The excitement began as soon as I got out of the car, flowers, trees, meadows and a total silence: you could hear the sound of the swallows cutting the air in flight. It was what I had been looking for a long time. Nature was around us, the owners were very kind and available for everything we requested, always with a smile. Their presence has become part of that beauty. The accommodation was perfect, a good sized room with a simple and tasteful decor, the bed was very comfortable. We have booked half board and at every dinner Scipio made us a different surprise, always excellent, followed by Biggi's desserts: fantastic! We would start and finish the day with Biggi's desserts, for breakfast and dinner. The farm is also in an excellent position to visit a different Tuscany from the usual itineraries, a few kilometers there are artistic sites, religious or simple historical centers of great interest, one for all The Sanctuary of La Verna: touches the soul. I would say a lot, but I repeat only Thanks Biggi and Scipio, to this other year!

    "Perfect hosts and a beautiful location, be sure to go half board!"

    08/30/2017

    We stayed here in early August. Having spent the previous few days touring fairly intensively with our children of 11 and 8 I booked a 5 night stay to slow the pace down before we headed over to the second half of our holiday (in France). The location of the farm is ideal - right on the edge of the forest with easy access to hiking should you want it but only about a (very scenic) 40 minute drive from Florence so you can visit the city but return to your haven in the mountains afterwards. The rooms are furnished in a stylish rustic manner and although they are not air conditioned the farm is isolated enough that there's really no problem simply leaving a door open most of the time so the heat doesn't build . Italy was in the middle of an intense heatwave during our stay and we had no issues with sleeping at night.
    The hosts Scipio and Bigi made us very welcome indeed and despite our lack of Italian they were extremely helpful. I would strongly recommend taking the half board option as we did. I had some reservations about this when I booked because my son is sometimes unduly fussy about food - but there was sufficient variety that there was never a problem with him not having something to his taste. For 4 of our 5 nights dinner was authentic Tuscan food and on the fifth night (I assume) Bigi cooked and dinner had a German twist. Breakfasts generally consist of bread, preserves, yogurts and some sort of tart or cake. In all cases the food was delicious and thoroughly recommended - and the timing of dinner at 8pm means that it doesn't impair daytime activities (we went over the other side of the hills to Gubbio one day - about 2 hours away and well worth a visit). With younger children in tow it's a delight to not have to think about where to eat in the evening.
    The farm has sheep and horses and special mention should be made of the way our children were able to interact with the animals - they were delighted to see the newborn lamb and be able to brush the horses. I think if I asked the children for the highlight of our Italy trip it would be this! Speaking of wildlife, my wife and son spotted a deer down by the farm track and while I didn't see any other big animals on the farm there's a large variety of insect life if you look around though the prolonged drought probably impaired that a little on our stay. In the forest I saw some very large hawks (eagles?) at close quarters and some nights while sitting outside reading we could hear owls.

    I cannot recommend La Chiusa enough - Scipio and Bigi aren't just helpful they are genuinely warm and make you feel right at home. Our stay was utterly perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to return again.

    "Holiday in nature"

    08/26/2017

    Farmhouse immersed in the green even though we are in the "wrong" season to see animals. Nearby there are beautiful art places, and even small villages (Camaldoli, Poppi, Laverna ...) have proven themselves to the height of a region that includes Florence and Arezzo. Great food, especially the Tuscan meat that is very delicious. Scipio cooks very well and is very hospitable as Biggi preparing great cakes and jams. Farmers who have the spirit of adaptation and those who love a simple type of life

    "Holiday in nature."

    09/12/2016

    We spent 9 days (September 2016) at the farm "La Chiusa". Simple, basic, surrounded by nature. Good food all prepared with local produce from Scipio and excellent desserts by Biggi. Last but not least the kindness here is home. Thanks Biggi and thanks Scipio. Isa and Angelo.

    "An oasis of peace"

    06/07/2016

    A place for lovers of nature and tranquility, where to restore the spirit and why not, even the body, thanks to the tasty cuisine of Scipio and genuine sweets Biggi ... A small piece of forest that seems straight out of a book fairy tales, where you can make unexpected encounters, like with a family of wild boars and see a herd of deer so close as to leave you almost in disbelief. The rooms are basic but comfortable and above all very clean ... great base for sight seeing in the surrounding area. What more ?? Thanks to Biggi and Scipio who made us feel at home. See you soon!

    "Great welcome in a natural environment"

    05/24/2016

    We spent a beautiful stay immersed in silence and peace. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated, excellent cuisine. The host, an expert of the Casentino, was generous advice on trips that you can do in the surrounding area; his lady welcomed us with a bright smile and a cheerful kindness that made us feel instantly welcome and at home of friends. The pastures around the house, next to the horses, we could observe several deer that evening came from under the windows of the dining room. We found a lovely place, enjoying the comfort of the farm, you can enjoy the charm of a direct contact with nature.
