About the property

House in Lucignano, Tuscany, Italy - Country Property In 3 Acres Near Siena

Casa Luisa is a completely refurbished 3 bedroom property. It is located between Lucignano and Sinalunga, about 10 mins from the A1 Betolle toll.

Set in 3 acres, the large swimming pool and terrace provide outstanding views.

There is a very large open plan area on the ground floor consisting of the kitchen and large traditional Italian dining table plus a good sized living space with cable television, games cupboard and various bookshelves stocked with books and games and DVDs. There is a little breakfast terrace outside the kitchen providing seating with an umbrella mostly used for breakfasts and cocktail hour to enjoy the magnificent view. There is another large terrace by the pool where outside dining can be enjoyed. There are many sun beds and outside seating areas. The nearby hilltop villages can be seen from the gardens but the house and gardens are completely private.

About Louise

We are a family based in North Oxford, England with our 5 boys. The oldest three are now at University but the other two are at school nearby. We love to travel, but enjoy our house in Italy as much as we can.

Louise purchased this house in 2001

Why Louise chose Arezzo Area

We had been looking for a property to buy in France for years but could never decide whereabouts. By chance we went on holiday to Tuscany with friends in 2000 and fell head over heels with the area. We met a wonderful estate agent (who is now a firm family friend) and bought Casa Luisa one year later. We renovated, lanscaped and put in the swimming pool the following year and have loved every inch of the place ever since then! The beauty of Tuscany and its people speak for itself but Casa Luisa is so easy to access (10 mins from main A1 motorway) and so central for Siena, Florence, Pisa and Rome that there is never a shortage of things to do and places to visit. In fact we go 3 or 4 times a year and are still discovering new finds.

What makes this house unique

Casa Luisa is a spacious, comfortable home with great facilites and wonderful views. The pool is large with an elevated terrace to read or sunbathe without fear of being splashed. The gardens are perfect for finding a quiet area to read or relax. Our favourite walnut tree providing shade for eating al-fresco. Casa Luisa is located between two towns, Lucignano (a pretty medieval hilltop town) and Sinalunga (a bustling market town), both providing an insight into the 'real' Tuscany. Casa Luisa offers privacy and seclusion whilst not being isolated. The local houses are working landowners and are often busy in the fields tending their vines or sheep.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The air-conditioning is in the main double bedroom only. There are plug in fans in the other bedrooms. However the house is old and the walls are thick and if shutters are kept shut the rooms do remain generally cool, even in Summer. Outside: The gardens are around the house with barbecue, outdoor eating tables, chairs and sun chairs. The private pool is not overlooked and is 12m x 6m and runs from shallow to 1.8m at the deepest end.5 and 2m deep at the deepest and 1m deep at the shallow end. There are boules and croquet sets, a large trampoline, tree swings and rope ladders. Utility Room: Large fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: We provide all linen and towels. The property is cleaned on changeover Saturday. This (and other services) incurs an extra cost of 200 euros to be made payable to the manager Irene who will visit throughout your stay to maintain the gardens and pool.
