About Luca

Here we are Lido and Luca. We have given a lot of thought about what we would do in the homes we inherited from our great-grandparents - old Tuscan farmers bound to this land. We had initially planned to sell them but then we realized we would regret this decision terribly. Renovation on the houses was done and we thought it would be nice to share all of this with our guests: the lush countryside surrounding the house and some good wine thus reflecting the simplicity of our lifestyle. So we worked patiently to make Villa Lilla into what see today. We are happy to offer you a place with bright sunlit rooms, large gardens, swimming pool plus numerous sport activities or simply organize your holidays, anniversaries and weddings. Above all we wish you a warm welcome!

Luca purchased this farmhouse in 1990

Why Luca chose Anghiari

This very comfortable and private Tuscany villa rental is just right for a few couples or a family and their children looking for an Italian getaway - but with easy access to all of Tuscany. Spend countless hours taking in the views or swimming in your own private pool.

This villa in Tuscany offers the possibility of relaxing and dining at home, enjoying serene walks, or taking day trips to other historic Tuscan cities like Arezzo or Siena. As an added bonus, the owners are wonderful!

If there’s an ideal time to visit Tuscany, it’s June. As the unsettled weather of early spring gives way to this month’s sunny skies, savvy travelers can score big. It’s during this transitional month that villa renters savor warm weather perks like poolside living—while at the same time explore the region with a fraction of high season’s soon-to-arrive tourists. June also happens to coincide with summer break, making it an unbeatable time to give your kids a taste of authentic European living

Some of the unique benefit I enjoy in my property are:

The peaceful of the Tuscany and Umbria countryside, the location that's in the countryside and at the same time in the city (we are just 5 minutes walking distance to the medieval center of Anghiari and Sansepolcro). The chirping of birds, sunset, sunrise, the large swimming pool, the charming and well furnished accommodations and of course my single presence in some hours of the day allows a privacy you absolute!

Yes, I really think that Villa Lilla it's one of the best vacation rentals in Tuscany and the best vacation rental in Anghiari. It is well equipped and furnished with large open terraces and beautifully well kept gardens.

Our Country House Villa Lilla offer various rental solutions, Medium and Top range bicycles in Road, MTB and E-Bike version are available for a fee.

For all the people who are not train the E-Bike is a great alternative to traditional bikes, thanks to

our E-Bike you can reach unthinkable and distant places and la

What makes this farmhouse unique

Last autumn my wife and I started talking about the summer holiday 2016. We started looking for a house to rent in Tuscany and she found Villa Lilla by “accident”. This villa looked too good to be true but she submitted a price request immediately. This villa was just what we had in mind as the whole family, ourselves, our two sons and their families, wanted to go.

Luca and his dad Lido doesn’t know the word no. They are doing whatever possible to make the holiday as comfortable as possible. Whatever your request is, they fix it. They were around every day, either to make sure that the stay was as perfect as possible or to cut the lawn, clean the pool or any other maintenance required.

Luca organize whatever you want to do, either a trip to see all the fantastic towns in the surrounding areas, a course to learn how to make Italian pizza or anything else such as a visit to a wine producer in Chianti. Luca did also organize a taxi to Arezzo and the train for the departure of our friends.

A wonderful mixture of comfort, elegance and space Great restaurants nearby that have great food at reasonable prices. The nearby mountains that go up to 9000ft are very accessible by or bike. Want old curious and interesting, drive in any direction. We are only 5 minutes from Anghiari, 10 mins from Sansepolcro and just 20 mins Arezzo, Perugia, 40 minutes, Assisi, the Caves of Frassasi, Siena and Florence. Professional catering and meals available. Friendly owners no live on site and are happy to advise on best walks; pretty pub, 1 mile. Fishing/biking can be arranged. If there are any requests or problems you deal directly with us, the owners.

The Apennines, with the roads in the woods on foot, for long walks, mountain bike or motorbike enduro.

Lido and Luca can organize excursions with Enduro bikes in the Apennines - driving and motorcycle must be booked before the arrival

A fabulous villa, location an holiday and we would thoroughly recommend it!

Excellent House, Owners. Great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year sharing a vacation home with our friends.

There were 6 children and 4 adults all together.

The house was spacious to accommodate all of us very comfortably.

The kitchen well equipped.

There is a enough space for the kids to run about freely and even a football post within the vicinity, as well as a play ground.

The BEST part of the house, was the pool, cleaned daily.

Beautiful and reasonably sizable , deep enough on the deep end for the kids to dive in.

The owners do not interfere at all but do come by daily so one can always ask for assistance or get tips.

I would highly recommend this place and would consider visiting again.

Many many thanks Luca and Lido for the wonderful week and delicious cake.

They even baked us a fresh cake one night for dessert, and it was delicious.

Fabulous rural farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

This villa really does live up to it's description, with it's large gardens, fabulous swimming pool and excellent accommodation. The pool was kept spotlessly clean and the gardens were well attended. The villa had lots of space and the bedrooms were all of a large size so were reasonably cool even though there was no air-conditioning. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom which was a real luxury. The villa was cleaned to a high standard after one week, with all the bedding and towels being changed, including the pool towels of which there were plenty. A car is essential for this property but it is well located to visit many interesting places within a couple of hours drive. The owners are fantastic and extremely helpful, with advice on where to visit, solving any small issues (flat tyres on the bike or broken light bulb), even taking my boys on a tractor ride! We enjoyed a traditional Tuscan meal cooked by the owners which was fabulous and excellent value. We rented this villa between 3 groups of friends, with the children ranging from 5 - 18 and all thought it suited their needs. Would highly recommend this accommodation for large groups of family or friends.

Great place to spend the vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute fabulous time at Villa Ferraguzza. Me and my family (We, 6 adults and 6 kids) had a great time in the heart of Tuscany.

The house and rooms was well equiped and clean. The large pool was great for sunny warm days. And the area had many little villages close by for an afternoon/evening dining or drink.

Luca and Lido offers the best service and I can reccomend to spend your holiday at Villa Ferraguzzo.

Joel and Viktor loved driving the tractor...:)
