About the Owner

We live in Belgium with our 3 children.

We try to be in Tuscany as much as we can but we still have a demanding job in Belgium. Tuscany is for us Paradise on earth with its unique landscapes, beautiful architecture and art everywhere. It is another way of living, away from the stress, enjoying the good life (especially the simple but exquisite food)!

Tranquil retreat away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Everything met our expectations and beyond. The descriptions are accurate and this is truly a beautiful place to spend time in Tuscany. The location is remote, approx 15 mins from the closest town (Lucignano), which is great for evenings out and about 20 mins from the supermarket. Both are driving times. The upkeep of the villa is immaculate and was restored with care, attention and in a high quality fashion. The location and pool is completely private, away from everything. The support we had from Christina, was great - she made sure we had everything we needed and was also close by. There were only 4 of us, so we had tons of space, but the villa can easily accommodate many more people comfortably. We wish the kitchen had had more basics left in the cupboards (eg. herbs, spices, oil, coffee), which seems common in the US, but not sure if this is because the place was new - anyway we left everything non-perishable that we purchased for others! An amazing location, and place to enjoy the tranquil countryside in Italy. Well worth the cost and we would definitely come back.

A Family Rendezvous!!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible is the word I would use to describe the location, the grounds, the villa, the atmosphere. We had the perfect family rendezvous, coming from opposite sides of the world and meeting in this serenity was exactly what we were looking for! The Villa has a private pool which was perfect for the lazy mornings and early afternoons. It is located 30 min from beautiful Siena and only an hour fro Florence so we were able to take day trips to these beautiful cities. Montepolciano and Chianti regions and their amazing wineries are only 15-20 min away. We had several days/nights that we stayed local and bought amazing produce and just cooked in the well equipped and grand kitchen. We would play cards upstairs in the living area with the cool air blowing in from the plethora of windows. It was simply perfect! and Joost and Anne were so hospitable! I would go back in a heart beat and plans are already in the works :).

Fantastic Villa in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

There were nine of us staying covering 3 generations of the family and everyone from the young to the old had an amazing holiday. The villa is very well maintained with all the mod cons you would expect for a property like this. The bedrooms and en-suites were all spacious and very comfortable. The outside was well looked after and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool.

We had some fantastic meals that we cooked in the well provisioned kitchen and enjoyed eating on the veranda watching the stars come out. As there was hardly any light pollution, the stars were quite amazing to people from the outskirts of London!!

The location is superb, so quite and with amazing Tuscan views, but still not too far away from Lucignano with it's restaurants and Sinalunga for the supermarkets. We also did a number of days out, and again these were relatively easy due to the location of the villa.

All I can say about Villa Gagnoni is go and experience it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Perfect Tuscan holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from a fantastic 8 days at Villa Gagnoni. The house itself is everything you want from a Tuscan holiday home. Arriving up the sweeping, Cyprus lined driveway you are met by a beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse - standing boldly on top of a hill with uninterrupted views for miles. Externally the house, gardens and swimming pool are fantastically presented and very well maintained. Internally the house is traditionally charming but restored to a very high standard with lovely modern bedrooms (all en-suite) and more than enough space for catering, eating and relaxing. In total we had eleven adults and children staying at the house although some days, with visitors, we had up to 20 adults and kids. Villa Gagnoni was more than big enough to cope with this many people whether it be around the pool or eating on the shaded terrace. Location wise the villa is very close to the quaint town of Lucignano where you can find fantastic butchers, bars, gelaterias and a decent array of shops and supermarkets. With Cortona, Pienza and the Strada dei Vini only 40 mins away the villa is perfectly located for exploring Tuscany. Villa Gagnoni is attached to the Piccolo Borgo Gagnoni (small agriturismo) although you wouldn't know it as its positioning is so private. The advantages of being attached to the Borgo are that you have a fantastic manager on site (Cristina) and can benefit from morning bread and pastry deliveries and many other helpful services. We couldn't recommend Villa Gagnoni more highly and will be returning in 2016!!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We (3 couples from the US) spent a fabulous week at Piccolo Borgo Gagnoni. It is a great house with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and beautiful grounds. The home is very spacious and comfortable and has a wonderful pool that overlooks the valley. The location is a few km from a great little village (Lucignano) and not far from Siena and Cortona. The house has many gathering areas so we could sit outside and have breakfast and really enjoy the natural beauty... the owner was not intrusive but provided everything we needed to be comfortable on the property. We would highly recommend Piccolo Borgo Gagnoni if you want a beautiful, relaxing home in the Tuscan countryside.

From the Owner

We bought Villa Gagnoni because of its unique architecture and its beautiful location on a hill side in a protected nature reserve. We loved the authenticity of the building and its surroundings. Here we can enjoy the beauty of nature and just relax. On the other hand Villa Gagnoni is very well located to visit a lot of interesting cities within a 1 hour drive. Recently we renovated the property to high quality standards. The guests of Villa Gagnoni enjoy also the services offered by Piccolo Borgo Gagnoni. You can order bread and croissants for the next morning or enjoy the breakfast buffet, you can take part in the pizza evening and wine tasting organised in the borgo.
