Ancient stone farmhouse located close to the village of Lucignano which, with its peculiar elliptic shape circumscribed by a perfectly preserved circle of walls, is one of the most interesting examples of medieval town planning. In the village, reachable also on foot with a nice walk on a countryside path around 1,5 km long, there are shops, services and typical, cosy restaurants where to taste the most famous Tuscan dishes. Moreover during the whole year Lucignano is the scene of renowned folk and cultural events. Il Gorgo is an old manor house which was already mentioned in the historical cartography of the XVII century Valdichiana, when it was part of a wide farm to which it has belonged until recent days. The house is placed inside a wide enclosed property with olive groves, cultivated fields, wood and a small lake. From the large and panoramic garden, where the beautiful swimming pool (size mt. 10x5, depth mt. 1,40-1,60) is situated, we can admire a relaxing view on the neighbouring countryside. The house furnishing, rustic with some original antiques, the vast equipment (satellite tv, CD player, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven) together with a fresh pergola equipped with table and chairs to eat outside, barbecue and wood burning oven, make of Il Gorgo the ideal destination to spend an enchanting and regenerating holiday.

Vacances inoubliables. Nos 6 garçons "bien vivants" ont pu s'amuser et rire dans la piscine et sur l'immense terrain à disposition sans déranger aucun voisin. La maison est fraîche. Même l'extérieur est pensé pour avoir des endroits ombrages durant toute la journée. Les petits soucis (manque d'eau chaude a l'étage) ont toujours été réglés de suite. Piscine et jardin entretenu tous les 2 jours et draps et linges changes tous les samedis. Village accueillant, très joli... À conseiller...
The villa is very beautifully located with a big yard with great views and a good sized pool for kids that know swimming. The host was helpful. With no heating the house became quite damp after two days of rain. Warm water ceased to work after a few days, but was fixed within one day.

Très belle demeure pour 10 personnes.
Maison très mal équipée par rapport à son standing. Très mal entretenue. de petits détails qui peuvent s'avérer génants au quotidien :Cafetière HS, pas de bacs à glaçons, pas assez de ventilateurs (2 pour 5 chambres).....

House very poorly equipped compared to its standing. Very poorly maintained: small details that may prove troublesome in everyday life: Coffee HS, no ice buckets, not enough fans (2 to 5 bedrooms) .....
We had a very nice week here: nice weather, lots of beautiful cities nearby and a lovely house.
abgelegenes, ruhiges und eingezäuntes Haus für 2 Familien; großer Pool mit großer Wiese (sollten beide in kürzeren Abständen gepflegt werden), Zufahrt relativ flach, auch ohne SUV gut erreichbar!
