From Lucignano, travelling along a picturesque road winding through the hills that form the natural border between the Aretine and Sienese parts of the Valdichiana (Chiana Valley), we find the Villa Bellaria.
Located on a hill surrounded by olive trees, the house enjoys captivating views which are truly characteristic of Tuscany: olive groves and natural forest.
The house has been recently renovated to offer our guests a welcoming abode, well-appointed in comfort and style but respecting the natural environment, using low-impact environmental solutions such as a ventilated roof space, solar hot water, dual water systems and rainwater tanks, and solar panels which produce sufficient electricity to meet all of the house’s needs, including air-conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter.
Villa Bellaria is ideal for those who wish to spend a quiet and peaceful holiday in the Tuscan countryside and also have easy access to the cultural and tourist attractions of the region. Lucignano, which is only 2 kilometres away, is a fascinating mediaeval village which retains it original and unique elliptical plan. Its concentrically aligned streets provide wonderful scenes and superb photo opportunities at each turn. Lucignano’s small museum has a rich array of precious and interesting objects, and you can visit the 14th century church of San Francesco which has frescoes by Bartolo di Fredi. Additionally, Lucignano is also located close to major roads and public transport providing easy access to some of the most important art cities in central Italy.
