“Residence Il Cassero” is an integral part of the Lucignano ‘borgo’, a picturesque little medieval town of rare beauty, situated in a central position among the Tuscany pearls of Siena, Arezzo and Montepulciano. The property is comprise of 7 bedrooms and 7 baths.
The characteristics of the Residence, highlighted by its majestic 13th century tower, have been preserved with attention, enhancing its historical architecture with great care and detail.
Wood-beamed ceilings, romantic fireplaces, canopy or wrought-iron beds, all give the apartments (some of them with mansard), a unique fascination, evoking ancient splendour and the warm and welcoming atmosphere of a rich past, without renouncing the conveniences and comforts of modern life.
Traditional Tuscan cuisine can be found in the various excellent restaurants in the pretty town of Lucignano, and offer specialities based on mushrooms and truffles. Instead, for those who wish to have the convenience of the residence, guests can use the kitchens available in every apartment, so that they can prepare their favourite dishes or enjoy a romantic supper in the tranquility of their own suite.

Fantastic location in a wonderful town full of sights, fine restaurants and interesting shops. Very spacious suite, though the kitchen was not well lit, not condusive to elaborate meal prep. Shower not easy to use if you are tall or wide. Great host and hostess who made the very generous gift of a nice bottle of wine. They also helped track down a lost pair of sunglasses in Florence. Very kind, very engaging. Lots of action and music happening right outside of the villa which added to our enjoyment during our stay.
