Eine wundervolle Anlage, sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und saniert, es fehlt nichts ! Sehr aufmerksame Gastgeber, das Beste was wir besher in Italen erlebt haben ! Enzo und Max sind sehr fürsorglich ohne aufdringlich zu sein, helfen sehr gerne mit Tipps (Weinkauf etc.) und sind sehr zuvorkommend. Perfekte Gastgeber und ein unvergleichliches Ambiente rechtfertigen den Preis ! Perfekt für Genießer und Ruhe suchende, durch die Nähe zu Siena (15 km) aber auch für kulturell Interessierte sehr zu empfehlen. Wir fühlten uns sofort wohl und willkommen. Ein luxeriöses Feriendomiziel für Anspruchvolle, welches durch Exklusivität, Charme und Niveau besticht. Gepaart mit der Aufmerksamkei, der Höflichkeit und des unaufdringlichen Charme der Gastgeber Enzo und Max war es für uns eine perfekte Zeit in der wir uns sehr gut erholt haben ! Es war traumhaft schön und wir werden gerne wiederkommen ! Herzlichen Dank !

a wonderful find

My husband and I both enjoyed our 12 day stay very much. The villa was extremely clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. The location was beautiful, but a bit remote. Wonderful walking in the area. Deer and pheasants outside in the olive grove. Large deck overlooking ravine was perfect for an antipasto and wine happy hour. Late day sunshine was beautiful on the fields and vineyards. Hosts very attentive.

A wonderful experience

  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2009
We had the good fortune to travel through Italy for 3 weeks. One of the most memorable experiences was our week at Podere Lucignano Secondo Agriturismo. The location, quality of the home and kindness of the owners far exceded our expectations. All very close to Siena, but none of the tourists. Vineyards to explore, deer in the meadow, wonder places to eat. Pure Heaven. My highest complement is to say I cannot wait to return.

Charming in the middle of beautiful countryside

  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2010
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lucignano Secondo. The house is beautiful and my three children loved staying there.

We were a short driving distance (10- 30 minutes) to numerous wineries, ceramic shops, walled cities (My kids loved San Gusme with their statue!) and the train station.

We would cuddle up on the couch every night in front of the fireplace and create our own meals with the exotic foods purchased from Gaiole in Chianti's Coop (grocery store) and a bottle of local wine. It is the perfect location to use as a launch pad to surrounding sites.

The owners were attentive and we had all the necessities stocked in the house prior to arrival. The internet was even fast enough to watch slingplayer (something we have found to be not the norm).

We would definitely revisit the house especially if we had a large group for special holiday.

Grazie Enzo, Lilliana, and Max!

Wonderful villa - we would love to return!

  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2011
My husband, 6 month old baby and I stayed in the downstairs apartment of Podere Lucignano Secondo Agriturismo for 7 nights commencing late September. We loved this place! The villa is located approximately 20 minutes from Siena in the heart of the Chianti region - it is only a very short drive to Radda (beautiful), San Gusme (divine) and Gaiole (give it a miss!) and there are wineries, castles, churches and other points of historic interest around almost every bend.
The thing that impressed us the most were the grounds of the villa and the views from almost every aspect. It was completely picturesque - olive groves, large trees and undulating hills could be enjoyed from numerous lounges and outdoor settings in the property grounds. The grounds themselves were immaculately kept with beautiful lawns and flower pots.
Although there are two apartments in the villa (which I believe can be rented separately or together) we felt as though we had totally adequate privacy and plenty of outdoor space to ourselves. During our stay the 'neighbours' upstairs were two really lovely couples so it actually enriched our visit immensely to have others to chat to and share travel tips if we felt like interacting.
Our apartment had a large combined lounge and dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. As compared to many 'self-contained' apartments/homes we have rented this kitchen really did have everything you needed to cook and serve meals for large groups as well as a much appreciated espresso machine.
The villa was very tastefully renovated and decorated and felt spacious and relaxing.
We were lucky to have fabulous weather however the charm of the villa and the friendly and great service we received from the hosts would have made for a memorable holiday regardless.
We highly recommend this villa and would return (if it weren't so far from Australia!).

Negatives? Not really. The mattresses were really hard, however I believe this is typical in Italy. It would have been great if a few small extras were supplied - tissues, hand soap in the kitchen, charcoal for the BBQ. But these qualms really are very minor and it is easy and inexpensive to buy provisions locally to enhance your stay.

This must be a heaven!

  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We stayed in this beautiful villa in July 2011 for a week, two families of 8. The house is located in Chianti region, about 9 miles away from Siena. This was a perfect place to enjoy the view, taste, and the culture of Tuscany as it offered not only a central location, but also a great accommodation with a perfect view.

The house has a gated driveway and has 4 parking spots. You need a car to get around the area as there's not much within the walking distance. As we drove in the driveway, our first impression was that we hit the jackpot, not knowing what to expect booking online without seeing the place first. The view of Chianti Vineyards was exactly what I imagined for a perfect Tuscany vacation. The outdoor area offered a beautiful outdoor stone deck, many lounging chairs to relax, a BBQ grill where we cooked scallops and steaks, colorful flowers, and plenty of space for our children to run around. Inside of villa also offered a great accommodation with two fireplaces, beautifully equipped kitchens, and a shower with a view.

The villa is separated into two floors. Top floor can accommodate 6 people with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a kitchen, a living room, and a separate entrance. Lower floor can accommodate 4 people with 2 bedrooms, a bath, a kitchen, a living room and also a separate entrance. We rented the top floor, plus had an access for one bedroom (yellow) on the lower floor. We got lucky that no one rented the other room during our stay, so we enjoyed the privacy. If you have a party of 7 or more, I highly recommend renting the whole house.

We would like to thank Max for being a perfect host, accommodating to all our needs, offering his knowledge to enhance our Tuscany experience, and even giving us a bottle of wine to enjoy. Everyone agreed that one week was definitely not long enough. We cannot wait to go back to relive the experience as one of our children said, “This must be a heaven!”

The perfect Tuscany Villa

  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2012
We stayed one week at the Podere Lucignano Secondo Agriturismo in May 2012 and enjoyed every moment. This is the perfect 'Tuscany Villa'. Very nice and large stone house in a quiet area in the middle of vineyards. The view is beautiful and the hosts are wonderful. We rented the entire house with our family and some friends. This place exceeded our expectations. Enzo, Liliana and their sons made our experience even more memorable. We will be returning!

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 3, 2008
  • Stayed: May 2008
Absolutely stunning in every regard. From the personal warm welcome, to the final farewell, we couldn't have asked for more. Comfortable, clean, secluded and well equipped. We were able to sightsee in a different direction each day. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and have a view days to simply hang out at the villa.
