Guestbook comments from the owner

After much reseach our group of four deciced on Podere Lucignano Secondo Agritutismo. We had the large three bedroom section of this building. The physical location is excellent, the furnishings are wonderful, the grounds are beautiful, the family ownership and management is competent, accomodating, and fair. Of couse we had a rental car and had come doen form Lake Como. This villa is a great base of operations to visit many of the sights around, all within driving distance. Or just spend quiet nights and days at the villa. What a wonderful experience to book this villa and create great memories.

Great villa, very private an beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the last four nights of our Italian vacation. Well maintained, clean, and very spacious. This was our forth visit to Italy and it just gets better and better. Next time we hope this place will be available as our primary base location with which we can make our day trips and greatly relax between. The owner suggestions of places to visit, shop, and eat were fantastic. Made some new territory easy to explore.

Tuscan Dream Vaccation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this incredible Villa for a month. We have been traveling in Europe for 1 year and this was the best accommodation we had. At one point we had 10 people in the Villa and never felt crowded. There are lots of lounges and sitting areas.

We took the cooking class and I must say it was excellent value. Enzo and his Two sons came and stayed from 4pm to 10 30 ensuring we had a memorable experience.

We will definitely go back in the future. It is so tranquil and peaceful yet still close to the local village which has some great restaurants and Sienna.

We also enjoyed many of the wine tasting opportunities located near the Villa.

It was exceptional value for the level of accommodation it is. I highly recommend this wonderful property to anyone wishing to get the Chianti experience.

I find it difficult to put into words how spectacular this property is and how much we loved our time there.

Amazing Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a Beautiful Villa!!! Being in Tuscany and staying at the Villa was a highlight of our trip to Italy! We stayed in the upstairs Villa which was three bedrooms and three bathrooms. We also got to see the downstairs and it is very nice as well. The Villa is roomy, kitchen is nicely set up. The outside dinning area was relaxing after a long day of seeing the sites to come back and enjoy a glass of wine and take in the view! Enzo, Liliana, Max and Duccio were very wonderful people and accommodating. We had a cooking class one night at the Villa, was really fun and the food was great! We hope to come back next year!

Paradise in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this stunning villa for 6 nights and were blown away. The pictures are nice but the villa itself has to be seen to be believed. We were 2 couples and we stayed in the 3 bedroom upstairs apartment and absolutely loved it. Less than a half hour from Sienna and about 1 hour from many popular destinations (San Gimignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano), we really had the time of our lives. We decided to take the italian cooking class with Enzo (the owner of the villa) and his 2 sons (Duccio and Max) and it was a night to remember. The sweetest people you can imagine and just mouth watering food and wine. They come to the villa, prepare their class, and then treat you to a 4 course meal of typical Tuscan cuisine. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Needless to say, we 100% recommend the villa. Romantic getaway, family vacation, travelling with friends, it's the perfect place to go. We were given a tour of the 2 bedroom apartment at the ground floor, equally stunning but we liked the fact that the upstairs had more than 1 bathroom. We left the villa with heavy hearts but I am certain that we will return one day. Can't wait!

Fabulous Tuscany Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by the owner and his son and they explained everything we needed to know for our 4 night stay. The 1898 property had been restored beautifully by the family and it was awesome. Sitting on the patio overlooking the countryside with our cocktails and snacks was one of many highlights. Cozy fires in the kitchen or sitting room warmed our hearts.

We were given several things to do and places to go from our hosts.

Thanks for an amazing Tuscany visit.
