Quiet charming villa with huge pool, stunning views, 5 star self catering style
Casa Luciano is a small but charmingly restored old farm house. It is nearly completely overgrown with wild vines. Inside you find high beamed ceilings and white washed walls. As the smallest of the three houses it offers space for a maximum of two adults and a child. There is no separate living area, just a tiny dining area and a small kitchenette which is very well equipped. It has a small sofa and reading spot dividing the room and one king size bed. The bathroom has a big shower, wash basin and toilet.
The balcony, which has seating for three people and a sun shade, faces the south with a very nice view onto the beautiful pool below and the wonderful countryside.
A cosy terrace with two large sun beds in front of the house provides a perfect view to the pool and the olive grove. Great for a sun downer.
Casa Luciano is the perfect cottage for people who love to do lots of sightseeing or spend their day by the pool. It is just perfect for people who love a romantic and cosy place

Ciao :) my husband Thomas and I bought Podere Fulignano almost 20 years ago. By then we both worked in the media business and were a bit tired of its superficiality. The southern Tuscany and its rurality fascinated and inspired us. Since the very first day we consistently renovated, renewed, changed and improved and we still do :) We are looking forward to welcoming you as our guests
Mel purchased this Farmhouse in 1995
Why Mel chose Campagnatico
We absolutely fell in love with this place from the very first second we saw it. For us it was like an old stage out of a film or an opera scene. We both felt the peace and the quietness and decided within one hour to buy it. The southern part of Tuscany is still so unspoilt and there are little tourists. The locals became close friends over the past years and treat us and our guests like close friends. And all major cities such as Rome Pisa Siena and Florence are within 1:30 hours reach and even the sea is only 30 minutes away. It's absolutely perfect for us and so say our guests and friends.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
For us and our friends and guests Podere Fulignano is the most peaceful spot on earth. It is heavenly quiet with clean air and no light pollution and therefore many shooting stars will be seen in the starry sky. You can listen to the fantastic nature - nightingales and crickets and fireflies. Enjoy the wonderful nature with its fantastic wild life - porcupines, wild boar, deer etc. Visit the unspoilt medieval villages and beaches of Tuscany...

A beautifully secluded Tuscan farm stay paradise!
Arriving at a non descript gated entrance in the dark and loading the suitcases into our well equipped and quaint apartment was a joy in itself, however awaking to the wonderful sunrise creeping through the curtains over the windows at the end of the bed and pulling them open to reveal rolling farm land, with only one house in sight, was INCREDIBLE!
Over coffee on the balcony we read through the welcome book and info on the property, with real excitement at the prospect of making pizzas from the dough bought at the local pizzeria in the pizza oven and cooking huge T-bone steaks on the BBQ! We didn't actually get round to doing this however as we had too much chilling by the pool to do on this holiday.
Which is AWESOME!!!
It was created using a huge natural pond, which was lined with pool lining, it's filled with fresh water on a regular basing and has really low chlorine content but is crystal clear and due to the white lining it has a beautiful green hue and so it was like our own private Cenote! BOOM!! Oh and the fridge in the pool plant room was a serious nice touch! It felt like the kind of house we would have if we buy and convert a property in Europe, a real home from ...possible future home!
We arrived at the beginning of September and the only snag was that lots of the top restaurants in the very local area were closed either for the winter or just to have a break.. we still found good places to eat though as they are abundantly obviously!
On our last day we visited Maremma National park for a long walk to reduce the pain on the scales on returning home, this was a great idea from the wife.. we walked for 1.5 hours to the end of the beach at Marina di Albrese and had the whole beach to ourselves where I constructed one of the ubiquitous driftwood beach huts that line the beach.. after a last hurrah of Tuscan indulgence of prosciutto on focaccia with fresh pecorino and truffle paste... well we had walked along way!!
On the walk back with the sun setting we picked up as much plastic from the beach as we could, a local storm must have whipped it up so as we'd enjoyed the beauty of the beach so much we wanted to give something back. I hope you all agree and do the same! Ciao Cheers laters
Dear Charles, thanks so much for writing this long and beautiful review. It made me feel back in Tuscany within a second. We stay in the Silicon Valley until next summer and it is really beautiful here too but I am sure when I am feeling homesick I only need to read your words again and it will comfort me beautifully. Thanks a lot :) cari saluti, Mel
Beautiful view and tastefull decorated house
Really loved our stay and so overwhelmed over the beautiful area. Campagnatico was such a great little town with a great playground and a perfect little grocery shop.
Daniella, the housekeeper, was so helpfull with extra babyitems and even the washing area was really nicely kept. Love how they styled the little houses and the poolarea, really nice👌🏻
Thank you for your review. We appreciated a lot having you as a guest. Daniela told us about your beautiful family :) Have a good reentry in Denmark. Warm regards, mel
Stau was perfect
Thank you for the 5 stars :) I guess you meant stay ;*
We had a wonderful stay in Mel's and Thomas' Casa Luciano. The whole property is very nice. A huge pool surrounded by olive trees is the highlight. Perfect Tuscany atmosphere. Strict recommendation for everyone who loves a remote, private atmosphere. Big thanks to our hosts!
Thanks a lot for your review. You were great guests! Say hello to your beautiful family!
Hidden away paradise
As always, this hidden away paradise still is
a wonderful place to recharge your batteries.
We all loved our second stay here, and it will
Definitely not be the last:)
Dear Torben and family, thank you so much and I hope that we can meet and have a drink together in Tuscany next time :) Have a perfect rest of summer in beautiful Denmark! Warm regards, mel
Toscana pur, paradiesisch & entspannt.
Hi liebe Mel,
jetzt sind wir schon wieder einige Wochen zurück im tristen und verregneten Deutschland und ich wollte schon längst geschrieben haben…
Wir hatten einen megaentspannten Urlaub in eurem traumhaften Anwesen und hätten es uns nicht schöner vorstellen können. Wir wussten zwar aufgrund der tollen Fotos und der guten Bewertungen, was uns in etwa erwartet, aber es war tatsächlich noch viel schöner - paradiesisch geradezu!
Das Haus ist perfekt ausgestattet (ein Ferienhaus mit zwei Kühlschränken und Salatschleuder und Bodum Teekanne hatten wir noch nie) und es mangelte eigentlich an nichts - okay - das Bügeleisen und Bügelbrett, aber das erwartet man nicht wirklich! Es gab herrlich viele Kissen im bequemen Bett und alles war so suüersüss hergerichtet. Daniela war entzückend und wir haben uns bestens mit Händen und Füssen mit ihr unterhalten.
Und vielen Dank nochmals für deine vielen Tipps und das schnelle Helfen, egal ob Bügeleisen oder Pizzateigrezept;)
Garten und Pool sind sowieso der Hammer und wir sind endlos viel geschwommen in eurer türkisfarbenen Lagune :)
Wir hatten eine wirklich tolle Zeit bei euch und freuen uns schon auf unsere nächste Toscana-Experience, vielleicht ja mal im Spätsommer und mit Freunden.
Happy Greetings aus Berlin von Tina, Andi und Kaya
Liebe Tina, Andi und Kaya, happy greetings zurück! Ihr wart tolle Gäste und wir freuen uns auf das nächste Mal! Cari saluti, mel
At the beautiful and charming little medieval (c.1200 century) village of Campagnatico (700 inhabitants) you will find a small supermarket, a pharmacy, a butcher, a bakery, a bank, a post office, two bars and three restaurants: a pizza place, a trattoria and a very luxurious one (which is an insider’s tip). The next big town is Grosseto, just 18 km away. There you will find everything you need including huge supermarkets, fresh fish markets and a really nice shopping area and walking zone. Campagnatico is located exactly in the middle of a triangle between the three big cities of Florence, Pisa and Rome. There is also good railway connection between these three cities and Grosseto, which is great for arriving to the farm, as well as for sightseeing. The big and beautiful nature reserve 'Parco naturale della Maremma' and the nicest beaches of the Maremma region such as Punta Ala, Monte Argentario, Castiglione della Pescaia are in only half an hour by car from the property. Other Activities: wine tasting Golf: 2 different 18 holes Golf Courses located within 40km from the property, open all the year: “Golf Club Toscana - Il Pelagone” (35 km) and “Golf Club Punta Ala” (about 35 km). 'Il Pelagone' is 18 holes, 5.920m, and PAR 71-SSS 70, with many facilities: training field, putting green, pro shop, hire cart, golf bags and trolley, bar, swimming-pool, volley, baby-sitting.
