Luxurious splendid B&B with great views at Tuscany landscape: the place to be for a luxurious relaxing holiday

5 on June 11, 2016

Warm and enthusiastic welcome from the host Paul. Splendid villa with beautiful luxury rooms. Beautiful bedroom, luxurious bathroom: all with beautiful views at Tuscany landscape. Fine breakfast and dinner, well taken care of by Paul. Terrace with good sunbeds, infinity pool and panoramic views. We have enjoyed the luxury and the good care by Paul.

Tremendous view and very beautiful house. We were looking for a quiet place with nice view and comfort. We found it here. Thanks Ann and Paul for making our 4-day trip to Toscany a success.


Wonderful place to be!

We enjoyed our stay with Ann and Paul in Villa Luogoceleste. Friendly welcome (after a long and tiring trip), delicious food, clean rooms, breathtaking views, relaxed surroundings, wonderful swimmingpool, ... It was our second stay in the Villa, and it was again great! Perfect place to visit Montepulciano, San Gimignano, Assisi, Chianti region, Firenze, Sienna, ... Also in spring, it's nice staying in Tuscany: comfortable temperatures, no overcrowding in the (great) cities. Surely, we'll come back "again"!


great B&B, would certainly recommend and will return!

I spend an amazing weekend at the B&B Villa Luogoceleste. Only superlatives would do the stay Justice. Whether it'd be the friendly welcome and homely feel, or the excellent and crisp clean accommodations, I couldn't choose if I had to. Upon our arrival, after a very long trip we were offered a drink and a tour of the Villa. We felt right at home were put at ease straight away. The room was spacious, classy, very clean and extremely luxurious. The surroundings were as one of a painting, beautiful and vast was the landscape. The infinity pool is as clean as can be, and chlorine free, which was an asses to me. Plenty of room, quiet, sun, and a feeling that is tough to describe. The Second B is the one of Breakfast, and boy, were we treated to a feast! Paul had special juices every morning, for which we had to guess which fruits he had put into them, Top notch coffee, local breads, croissants, apple pastry, fresh yoghurts, eggs and bacon prepared on the spot, served with a smile and a joke. Amazing... Next to the great accommodations, We also benefitted from the knowledge of the owners. They seamlessly steered us clear of any tourist traps and into the best restaurants (that were very affordable). We visited nearby cities, ate like royalty and slept like babies. The only thing I regret is not having stayed there longer. Thanks a bunch to Paul and Ann. I will certainly be back.


Top location

If you want to destress and enjoy local food and wines in Tuscany, there's no better place to go than the B&B Luogoceleste. Great hosts, warm welcome, clean rooms, top swimming pool, spectacular view,....Ann and Paul guided us to great restaurants, beautiful places,...with great knowledge.


Paradise in Tuscany

5 on January 04, 2015

This was my second stay in the Villa and even then it exceeded my expectations. There is only one word to summarise Villa Luogoceleste and this "perfection". I have already been in a lot of very nice bed & breakfast's and they all had areas in which they were close to perfection. But Villa Luogoceleste is reaching out for perfection in all aspects: an extremely harmoniously and luxuriously furnished villa, with excellent food and wines, surrounded by a very nice nature and culture. And not to miss any of these aspects, you can count on the recommendations from the host. The five things that I will link forever with the Villa are: the morning sun on the remarkable ceiling in the room, the breakfast with local products, the view while swimming in the infinity pool, the red wines and the host Paul. If I have to mention one short coming: the doors from the rooms. But very soon these will be history. Paul showed us the pictures of the new doors that will be placed beginning 2015. I can assure you, we have found a good reason to come back for a third time!


The tuscan life

We were looking forward for a relaxing time off, in a calm and beautiful Tuscan setting. And that is exactly what we found in Luogo Celeste. A gorgeous location, tidy and well decorated rooms, good equipment and a friendly welcome by Paul. The breakfast was delicious and a perfect way to explore local products. Our host gave us excellent tips on towns to visit, restaurants and where to buy what wine. We definitely recommend this B&B for everyone looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful scenery, enjoying all that is good in life!


Toscane during the holiday season

5 on December 31, 2014

Going somewhere during the holidays is always solethung special but here we spend a great time, away from the stress at home. At arrival we received a great diner and the breakfast was exquisiet with great local products. The house was decorated beautiful decorated and every evening we sat at the cossy fireplace. All the rooms were in great shape and cleaned perfectly. On advice of Ann & Paul we visited some smaller villages where it was nice and quiet, a relief from the bigger cities.


Zeer tof verblijf in een aangenaam kader

5 on September 20, 2014

We hebben hier echt genoten. Genieten van de rust, van de mooie omgeving en natuurlijk het zwembad. De eerste avond hebben we genoten van het gratis diner (tof dat je niet meer weg moet), lekker menu en wijnen van de streek. De volgende dag een prachtig ontbijt, heel uitgebreid, 3 verschillende soorten brood, croissants met fruit, chocolade koeken, 3 soorten fruitsap, vlees, kaas, eitjes,....voor elk wat wils. Er was eigenlijk zelfs teveel. De kamer wordt netjes onderhouden en de handdoeken ververst. Wat een zicht vanuit de kamer. Bij Paul kan je terecht voor alles, leuke adresjes, reservaties in restaurants. Paul heeft ons (en de andere koppels) meegenomen naar een lokale wijnboer in Castiglion, super, lekkere wijnen. We hebben ons ook ingeschreven voor de 2 table d'hôtes, lekker en hebben kunnen genieten van verschillende wijnen. Een week was te kort voor onze geplande uitstappen en dus zullen we dit nog eens over moeten doen. Wij kennen in elk geval een goed adres, bij Paul en Ann


50 shades of orange ¿

5 on August 26, 2014

Na een rit van 1350 km goed en wel aangekomen in Pozzo della Chiana. In dit stuk van Toscane is de tijd denk ik toch blijven stilstaan. Na een kleine kilometer van zandweg aangekomen aan een witte villa. Ja hier was het dat we moesten zijn. Een hartelijk onthaal van Paul en Ambra ( Golden Retriever ) Mijn vrouw was meteen weg van de prachtige omgeving. Ikzelf moest toch even wennen aan de rust hoor. Na een rondleiding en de nodige uitleg van wat er allemaal kon en was kregen we een aperitief aangeboden( oranje ). Alle kleine details in de villa en de kamer maar ook in de tuin zijn wat denk je ….. oranje ¿ De eerste avond kennisgemaakt met de gasten tijdens het diner. We kregen een aantal speciale wijnen uit Cortona te proeven. Top ! De kamers zijn voorzien van alle comfort en zeer mooie ingericht met een aantal oranje tinten. Een speciale mix van toscaans met design. Het ontbijt bestaat uit vele soorten vleeswaren uit de streek. Maar ook de Pecorino die hier wordt gegeten met honing was lekker. De soorten vruchtensappen in de rijkgevulde koelkast zijn over het algemeen ……oranje ;-) De restaurants waar men mee samenwerkt zijn allemaal van een hoog niveau en zeker Walter Redaelli die we twee keer hebben bezocht. De rit met de Vespa (Montepulciano en Cortona) is iets wat me het meest is bijgebleven. Don’t drink and drive dus ;-) Een week is eigenlijk te kort en vliegt zo voorbij en tegen het einde van onze vakantie was ik aan de rust gewend geraakt. Het was gewoonweg super! Bedankt Paul voor de gouden tips en de geode zorgen.

In Italy and specially in Tuscany you have always a antpasti (starter) and here we can serve a prosciutto (ham)or crostini (canapés). The you have the primi piatti (first course) can be a nice soup (like ribollita) or pasta (spaghetti, penne)or Gnocchi or risotto. The you have the secondi piatti (main course). Tuscant is known for the very nice meat. There is a special cow (Chianina), the best steak. To end do not forget the cheeses like Pecorino and the deserts like pannacotta. As welcome diner and also at table d'hotes we give 3 courses.
