Villa Luciano is a very spectacular villa. The building dates back to 1560, the furniture and all the details in the house are just breathtaking. So is the view towards Arezzo valley, even better than in the photos! Upon arrival we couldn't believe that there are 37 curves on a hilly road before reaching the villa but we got used to it. It gives a very remote feeling though there are some other houses nearby (the only thing we heard was some remote barking on one evening). We spoke in Italian with Luciano who is such a nice and warm gentelman, very helpful and also creative (hints inside the house). He gave the key and provided us with instructions. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and also some refreshing swim in the pool. When watching TV, there are two different digital boxes for the channels (for Germans and for the others, Italian channels included). The beds are comfortable, having shower in the bigger bathroom is slightly easier but we managed everything. There is even a little gym if you feel the need :) Also a place for cooking your own pizza. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to enjoy playing billiard but the room seemed very appealing for that. We absolutely loved our stay and we would definately return for the next trip to discover some others of the numerous treasures in Tuscany area!
This quiet well appointed villa was the centerpiece for our two week stay in the Tuscany. Margreth and Arthur welcomed us as friends and by the end of our stay made us feel as family. The villa is thoughtfully decorated and features all the modern conveniences, including a flat screen tv with English channels! Arthur traces continuous ownership of the property, which includes their much, much larger villa next door and the remaining 10 hectares of a formerly much larger landholding to his ancestors beginning the 15th century. His passion for that history and for continuing restoration is infectious. The only real complaint is that the second bathroom is both inconveniently located (on the second floor) and almost impossible to use for folks over 6 ft tall. Otherwise, could not have asked for better accommodation or a more enjoyable experience.
