About Petra Giacone

Hello from Petra and Alexa!

We both live in Genoa and manage our parents properties: Villa LisiDor, Villa PetrAlexa, Villa EnriMar, Casa Margit have been our secret places where we spent our regenerative holidays in marvelous natural settings away from daily chaos.

We have preserved them jealously, putting all our loving care to make every villa always more comfortable, unique and unrepeatable.

Not a long time ago we decided to share them with people who, as we do, love nature, the tradition of simple things and appreciate the care for every little detail, typical of a domestic management.

We love to know when people from foreign countries come and appreciate our beautiful land and feel at home when they stay in our villa: that's our greatest satisfaction!

... We warmly welcome you!

Petra Giacone purchased this villa in 1980

Why Petra Giacone chose Chianti Senese

Our father Enrico managed for years a wine farm in this land. He loved the way of life of this land and the contact with nature and the unstressed people living here, so he decided to buy Villa Lisidor to have a place to escape from the chaotic town life.

What makes this villa unique

Spacious and comfortable, Villa LisiDor will permit you to rediscover the luxury of simple things:

…wake up in the morning and appreciate the peaceful sound of silence which surrounds you,

…enjoy complete privacy in the middle of woods, hills of vineyards and olive groves,

…relish a savoury “Fiorentina” cooked on the barbecue in the garden or on the fireplace in the house,

…take pleasure in the wonderful garden as the fragrance of rosemary, lavender and sage fills the air.

…all this at half an hour from Siena and 45 minutes from Firenze !

'Dear Petra,

We’re back in the real world and I keep on thinking about the fabulous view from your wonderful place. We really enjoyed ourselves! Your place was perfect—I loved the sitting areas in various places, the rooms were simple and tastefully decorated and the property well-maintained. Tennis every day was a treat! The kitchen was efficient—good for breakfast and lunch. Most dinners we ate out. I enjoyed my long walks along the roads lined with vineyards and olive trees.

Thanks so much for sharing.'

Ann Nerland, 31May-14June 2014



“We had a lovely stay! It’s the best villa we have stayed in, so well equipped. Thanks for then use of the tennis court and bbq. We hope to be back, thank you so much Petra!"

"Another wonderful holiday here at Villa LisiDor! Tennis and swimming pool enjoyed by all. Daily bread and cakes available just up the road in Lecchi where you can also enjoy tasting wines.

We enjoyed our stay and will no doubt visit again."

lovely villa for friends and family holidays

  • 5 of 5

Our time here has been excellent with a great tennis court, swimming pool and villa.

Great welcome from the housekeeper - despite him speaking no English - we were able to understand the basics!

We would recommend going to Radda, Florence and Sienna with some amazing sights. Advise pre-booking some of the tickets for the museums in Florence so that you can avoid the queues. Do look at the great range of guide books in the drawers. There are some great restaurants in the area, one we especially liked was Malborghetto in Lecchi.

Amazing views and a great house to be based from.

Well maintained swimming pool and tennis court.

Very relaxed time - fantastic time base to explore the area and also excellent base to chill. Rustic charm - next year they are looking at extending which sounds very exciting. Would love to come back some day.

Beautiful Tuscan villa with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the villa.

It was a great base to explore the local area (Siena and the local villages among others) as well as to relax during the day. The pool was brilliant and the shady areas were perfect to read in.

We would especially recommend La Bottega in Volpaia where we had a wonderful evening, but remember to book!

Thank you for all your help with everything – you made our stay very comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome.

We have had a fantastic time here at LisiDor

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic time here at LisiDor – beautiful well kept villa, lovely swimming pool and great fun on the tennis court in the evenings.

Trips out to Siena, San Gimignano, Greve (great deli wine tasting shop in the square), Radda, Castle Brolio – Siena and San Gimignano were amazing. Volpaia was also lovely for lunch. Best meals at the local Malborghetto restaurant in Lecchi, amazing ravioli, lamb and chicken.

All in all a very relaxing break – rented bikes from Tuscany bicycle in Gaiole and lots of walks around the villa.

Villa ticked all the boxes – fantastic !!

Beautiful views in a stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa and grounds are beautiful and you can tell a huge amount of effort goes into the upkeep and maintenance. The pool is huge with views of vineyards and hills as far as the eye can see. The villa is very large and beautifully decorated, spec'd out to a very high standard but still in keeping with the Tuscan tradition. Also has a tennis court which is a bonus! Petra the owner is most helpful before and during the trip. I would highly recommend this villa...a perfect Tuscan holiday house :)

Lovely villa in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Villa LisiDor and the Chianti region. The location is excellent, down an unpaved road surrounded by vineyards, nature and tranquillity. The owner was very helpful, before, during and after our stay and very accommodating.

We stayed in the villa before the renovation works that are planned, and we found the villa very charming with loads of traditional character, a big gorgeous private pool and a great tennis court. Though there is no air-conditioning, we never missed it as the temperature in the rural countryside is very pleasant and the villa is very cool inside. In fact we never even used the fans provided, even though it was hot in the cities in the surrounding area. We were travelling with a toddler and the villa was very safe, aside from the usual precautions required around the pool.

Radda in Chianti (about 10 mins drive) is a lovely little village with all the amenities you could need including lovely eateries and a very good supermarket. The villa is also very well located for day trips to Siena, San Gimigniano and Florence.

We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend both the villa and the Chianti region. We hope to return soon!
