The apartments Casa Genziana A, B, C, D ed E are part of an ancient Tuscan farmhouse, built in the seventeenth century with thick stone walls. The farmhouse has been tastefully restored with love, keeping the original architecture intact.
You will reach the villa along a driveway that unwinds in the vegetation of the hillside. You will be welcomed by a large wrought iron gate, and you will be able to park your car inside. The first thing you will notice, at a level above the parking area, is the large stone building, framed by the green of the trees. Climbing a stone stairway of approximately ten steps you will find yourself in a large flat area, in the middle of which there is the villa, surrounded by a large lawn. Among the grass, here and there, you will see large terracotta jars filled with flowers.
Everything is beautiful, well-kept and well ordered: you will fall in love with this place at first glance and will be happy you chose it for your vacation.
Beyond the lawn there is the side of the hill, along which you will find marked trails that invite you to stroll in the woods.
The air is clear and bright, perfumed by the smell of the wood. Your eyes will rest on an uninterrupted horizon of the Tuscan countryside.
From every point of the premises you will only see the blue of the sky and the green of the surrounding hills, and no other building.
For each guest a swimming pool towel is provided, along with bed linens and towels. Every day a gardener is on the premises to look after the garden, and it is possible to request maid services. Breakfast in the garden is available upon request.
Small-sized pets are welcome.
Mountain bikes are available at the villa for you to rent, and a horse center is nearby.

Pool / Spa
Absolutely beautiful! It looks even better than the pictures on the web site. The grounds are amazing. Wish we could have spent more time at the villa but we had the rest of Tuscany to see!
You guys did good. You kept me informed before we went which made me feel comfortable. Everything went perfectly on our entire vacation in Italy: what more can a guy ask for!!!
Casa Genziana is a delightful property, all the better for few other residents while we were there

A really good holiday, with an excellent pool and gardens, and woodland walks outside.
Very good service. We shall certainly use you again.
I loved Casa Genziana
I loved Casa Genziana. The complex consists of a villa divided into 4 apartments and a separate guest or caretakers' house where I stayed for about 10 days in Oct 2012.
The owner, Ms Michela, is very accommodating and speaks good English, having lived in Rochester, NY, for 3-4 years as a child.
My apartment was beautiful. The kitchen-living room window opens onto a spacious grassy yard with large pool and forested view. With the windows open, the mid-day sun and outside temp warms the living areas and, when closed, retain the warmth over night; with the windows closed, the entire apartment maintains a fairly even, comfortable temp, even when much cooler outside; doors in the house are solid oak with brass hardware; the yard is beautifully maintained; facilities include a shared hot tub, barbecue grill, kids play area, covered lounge area with cushioned furniture, washer/dryer; as is typical in Italy, trash must be carried out to communal dumpster, which is about 1 km.
This place is far from any town (5 km to Lucignano). You must travel a gravel road about 1 km to the house but this remoteness adds to its charm. You are really in the country. For me, the best part was being close to a major super highway (8 km to A-1). From there, I could get to many very interesting places in central Italy in less than 1 hour. In fact, my main reason for selecting this villa was its proximity to winding roads of which there are many once you leave the autostrada.
