CITENO is a beautiful Tuscan Villa with a private pool, located on top of a small hill with breathtaking views over wide sunflower fields and forests with century old trees. The villa holds 5 apartments, all completely independent, with its own private entrance. The largest apartment allows up to 10 persons. It is located on the first floor with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. You can sit in the large living room next to the fireplace and at the same time enjoy the beautiful Tuscan nature that surrounds CITENO. The living room has 4 archways which have become large windows.

A covered terrace on the south side of the house is a perfect place for relaxing dinners and quiet evenings at sundown with a group of friends and a tasty bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Towering above the structure is a classical lookout tower, this apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and the possibility of a 5 bed if required. LA TORETTA has a spiral staircase that opens up into a bedroom with windows on all four sides overlooking the valley.

Each apartment has a complete kitchen with all dishes and pottery, completely equipped with fridge, oven, stove, fan and coffeemaker.  All apartments are well laid out and are filled with lots of natural light. Each apartment offers the possibility of one or two added beds. The larger one, located on the ground floor, can be accessed by French doors directly from the garden, which open to a wide living room illuminated through its arched glass windows, that becomes actually a common room for the group to get together to watch TV and chat with a glass of wine by the fireplace.

The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden full of flowers and ancient trees, the perfect setting for early morning or late afternoon strolls. There are different patios and outdoor areas. A covered safe car park and a BBQ-area are on site. Extra services which are available upon request include the laundry room and SAT-TV.

The furniture of CITENO is extraordinary in style and quality. Antique pieces, artwork and personal items decorate the house. The owner left a very personal touch inside these walls and it gives the entire house a lovely atmosphere. Great attention was given to all details. Oak beams on the ceilings and the original old Tuscan Cotto tiles on the pavements show the traditional way of constructing these villas, a tradition that dates back several centuries. The beauty of antique materials was carefully combined with all modern conveniences. All bathrooms are equipped with shower, sink, WC and bidet. 

The ground floor is composed of two communicating apartments: the largest one composed of 3 bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a charming living room with many arched glass windows overlooking the garden and French doors and kitchen; the smaller one has a living room with kitchen corner, bedroom with en-suite bathroom and is connected to the larger one giving privacy at the same time as family and friends can stay together in one villa.

The first floor is composed by 4 bedrooms each one with its own en-suite full bathroom divided in a total of 3 different apartments. Each apartment has a small independent kitchen and a cosy living room, offering then large areas and many living spaces with privacy for individual family or group units. The third apartment offers a "tower" with one more bedroom located on the second floor (see "FLOORPLAN 2" below, near the pricelist box).

70 Hectare (about 650 acres) of private land surround the Villa. Olive trees and wine plantations, sunflower fields, meadows, fruit trees and green hills are all you will see. There is no sign of pollution or noise. CITENO is an oasis of quietness and exists in perfect harmony with nature. There is a large pool only 100 meters from the house, and a right next to the pool is an antique "grotta", where the owners are planning their wine cantina.  

The closest village Cetona is only 4 km away. It has a very attractive historic center, and a ancient castle, worth spending a day visiting it. Montepulciano with its world famous wineries are only 20 km away. Chiusi with its splendid volcanic lake is about 15 km. away. On request there is daily maid service and someone to help with the babysitting. If you like to have a cook to come in and prepare for you a typical Tuscan dinner, this is also possible.

The headboard of all beds is made of a labored wrought iron handicraft, an old art that represents the typical Tuscan furniture. The fabrics of bedspreads, linen, towels and curtains are all the best quality.

Helen H, Kingsville, Canada

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. Helen H.

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. Melissa O.

Fabrice M, Monaco,

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 Citeno. 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 helped a lot securing spots for the other 45 guests in neighboring villas or hotels. By the way, some stayed at Villa Gran Parco which is also owned by Bea's family and our friends loved their stay. Villa Citeno 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. We had also 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 her staff. 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 Citeno is a magic place, you can come and enjoy it simply 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, 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 Citeno and Beatrice, may you enjoy it as much as we did and preserve the authenticity of this place. Fabrice M. Monaco 08/06/2016

Sylvain C, Naples, Florida, United States

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 Gran Parco" and "Villa Citeno" – 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.

Carole D, Campbell River, Canada

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 was a delight. We will return again I am sure. Carole D.

Diane G, Louisville, Kentucky, United States

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. Diane G. Louisville, Kentucky 16/08/2013
