After much reseach our group of four deciced on Podere Lucignano Secondo Agritutismo. We had the large three bedroom section of this building. The physical location is excellent, the furnishings are wonderful, the grounds are beautiful, the family ownership and management is competent, accomodating, and fair. Of couse we had a rental car and had come doen form Lake Como. This villa is a great base of operations to visit many of the sights around, all within driving distance. Or just spend quiet nights and days at the villa. What a wonderful experience to book this villa and create great memories.
Stayed September 2012, traveled with friends
We stayed at this stunning villa for 6 nights and were blown away. The pictures are nice but the villa itself has to be seen to be believed. We were 2 couples and we stayed in the 3 bedroom upstairs apartment and absolutely loved it. Less than a half hour from Sienna and about 1 hour from many popular destinations (San Gimignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano), we really had the time of our lives. We decided to take the italian cooking class with Enzo (the owner of the villa) and his 2 sons (Duccio and Max) and it was a night to remember. The sweetest people you can imagine and just mouth watering food and wine. They come to the villa, prepare their class, and then treat you to a 4 course meal of typical Tuscan cuisine. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Needless to say, we 100% recommend the villa. Romantic getaway, family vacation, travelling with friends, it's the perfect place to go. We were given a tour of the 2 bedroom apartment at the ground floor, equally stunning but we liked the fact that the upstairs had more than 1 bathroom. We left the villa with heavy hearts but I am certain that we will return one day. Can't wait!
We were warmly welcomed by the owner and his son and they explained everything we needed to know for our 4 night stay. The 1898 property had been restored beautifully by the family and it was awesome. Sitting on the patio overlooking the countryside with our cocktails and snacks was one of many highlights. Cozy fires in the kitchen or sitting room warmed our hearts.
We were given several things to do and places to go from our hosts.
Thanks for an amazing Tuscany visit.
The grounds were beautiful & the villa was clean & had all of your amenities needed - you had everything you wanted to cook a meal & enjoy the surroundings. The owners made recommendations for whatever you needed & we're all great. We will definitely go back again - maria
Our stay at Le Logge was wonderful and our hosts could not have been more gracious, wish we could have stayed longer. The villa is in a great secluded location that allows you to get away from everything. The accommodations were five star. Four of stayed at the villa for eight days and it could have comfortably accommodated six adults. The property is ideally located for a day trip to Florence, shopping or dinner in Siena, or visits to the many wineries in the area. Highly recommend the taste of Tuscany dinner prepared by our host Enzo and served by his exceptional sons. The property is an old farm property that was exceptionally renovated with as much attention payed to the surrounding grounds and gardens that offer beautiful views of vineyards and olive groves. We would go back again in a heartbeat and recommend it to all. Thanks for letting us rent your property Enzo and Liliana--you have a great property and family!!!
The Lucignano Secondo was amazing. The perfect location to explore Tuscany and such a lovely atmosphere to come back to after a day of sight seeing. We felt completely at home from the second we arrived. Even though we ended up arriving 30 minutes earlier than anticipated, Duccio and Enzo were there to welcome us and help us to get settled in right away. The house was so clean and the property just gorgeous. The pictures don't do it justice. It was just what we needed after 4 busy days in bustling Rome. We will stay here again, hopefully soon!
Warm welcome at Lucignano Secondo although it was raining on our arrival.
Perfect location in a quiet spot under big pine trees. Clean and cosy apartment 'Le Logge' on the first floor. We felt very comfortable in the house. Kitchen was fully equipped, we had all we needed. Big Supermarket Coop is located in Siena about 17 km away. Smaller shops in Pianella 3 km.
All questions and information about what to see and to do, Duccio is the man for! Thanks to the Rossi family Enzo, Liliana, Duccio and Max
