TUSCANY AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5
Two weeks in heaven can only describe our holidays in this wonderful house.

The house is located on the perfect spot, with astonishing views of the Tuscan hills, and within easy reach of major touristic places that you will want to explore.
The way Margherita and her husband have decorated the house makes you feel at home. It is very charming and designed to create a family and cosy atmosphere, while at the same time being open and give you a sense of space.

My wife and I having been to Italy (and Tuscany more specificaly) various time before, we can honnestly say that we could not have found a better place to stay. All these years we were arguing about finding the perfect place to settle for holidays instead of always roaming the country from hotel to hotel, from city/village to city/village. Well....we have finally found it and hope to return there again in the years to come.

Adding to the holiday charm is of course the marvellous couple owning the house and welcoming you. They made us feel at home right from the start, instructing us of the best things to do, the best places to go. You can tell that they both love the place, and want you to fall in love with it too. Well, it didn't fail.

Great place, great people. If ever someone wishes to discover Tuscany, trust me, this is "the" location, and "the" house, you'll want to go to.

HIGH STANDARD AND FANTASTIC VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of seven, spending a week in this villa. The villa had a very high standard, with four double bedrooms with ensuites, a large well equipped kitchen and a nice living room. And the views! On top of the hill with fantastic outdoor areas, with morning sun on one side and evening sun on the other side. Easy walking distance - 7 min - to Lucardo village - with two good restaurants. Perfect location for trips to Montespertoli, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Florence, Pisa, Chianti, (but you need a car) etc,etc. We got a very hospitable welcome from the owners when we arrived. They showed us around the house, and even assisted in booking restarants for us. We felt very welcome indeed. I absolutely recommend this property.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA AND WONDERFUL HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
The Villa was absolutely gorgeous, finished to a very high standard. The views were fantastic looking out over the Tuscan countryside. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us that were staying and it had everything you need when your away from home.

Margherita was a wonderful host she waited hours for us at the place due to complications with our rental car. She then organised a place for us to eat at as we arrived at about 9pm. She was so warm and inviting we really felt at home in Tuscany. Thanks heaps for a memorable stay we will be back someday.

We spent 6 weeks travelling through Europe and this was the best accommodation that we stayed at.

MAGAZINE-WORTHY VILLA WITH EQUAL VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Villa Lucardo is located on a ridge high enough to have a 15 kilometer view of rolling hills with vineyards, olive trees and cypresses on both the east and west sides of the house. The location also makes for natural air conditioning at night when a gentle breeze runs through the anti-papataci screens. Sunrise and sunset are incredibly beautiful. Within half an hour driving you can find a generous serving of Tuscany's cultural highlights. Even the little church in nearby Marcialla boasts an early Michelangelo fresco, for private viewing during a one hour morning run.

The villa itself is a recently restored barn and very well-equipped. The interior design is magazine-worthy. Tasteful italian country style with lots of white and pink colors and lots of details. The hall is large and inviting. The kitchen is large with a long dining table. The living is cosy. The four bedrooms have very comfortable beds and each has its own bathroom with either bath or shower and toilet. The master bedroom is majestic. The garden is large, with several terraces and some shaded places. It is very quiet.

Margherita and Guiseppe are perfect hosts. You are aware that you are really their guests, in their own second home. They will receive you with tremendous hospitality and you will feel sorry to actually say good bye when departure time has come.

Situated at a height of 440m, the spectacular medieval village of Lucardo is one of the three most important sights of Tuscany, where you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the relaxing landscape of the Chianti hills.

Its strategic location allows to easily reach Florence, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano, in addition to the opportunity to visit numerous castles and wineries with their ancient cellars, offer visitors a wine tasting and traditional menus in the area.

Its feudal past is witnessed by the famous Castle of Lucardo, dating back to 1000 built on a pre-existing Etruscan settlement.
