About Emma Cordingley

I am Emma Cordingley, the booking agent for La Lucciola. I have lived in the area for 17 years and with my husband, Martin, run a small rentals agency that was started by my parents in the 80s. I am originally from the UK where I was a high school teacher. I have 2 teenage daughters. I like walking, gardening, cooking, films and reading. I love everything Italian. Martin has run wine tastings for the past 10 years or more, in January 2016 he qualified as an Italian sommelier. He has also written a book of local walks and leads walks in the countryside and some of the local towns.

Why I don't take payment through this website:

I have been renting houses in the area of Italy in which I live for more than 25 years, using my own website at Gorgacce Rentals and many other listing websites such as Trpadvisor, etc. I have been renting on Owners Direct/HomeAway/VRBO/Homelidays/Arbitrel (all now owned by Expedia) since these websites existed. In 2016 they fell under the umbrella of Expedia and there have been big changes since. Although I still pay them handsomely to list all my houses on their website, they now also charge a "service fee" to all guests. For each booking paid for through their website they also take a 3% surcharge from my rental. In order for me to keep prices down I take my own payments; bank transfer, credit card or UK cheque to my UK registered company. Please feel free to phone me if you want to discuss this or any other matter related to the rental.

Emma Cordingley purchased this villa in 1999

beautiful secluded holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property provided quality, comfort, privacy and relaxation exactly as it says " on the tin" and better. The pool provided welcome relief in our heatwave stay and the beautiful grounds provided plenty of shade opportunities for those with fairer skin. Linda, the housekeeper and invaluable asset, was available when required to provide advice on local supermarkets, restaurants and towns to visit which were delightful and gave the opportunity of experiencing local food, wine and culture. Not speaking any Italian we were concerned how we would manage but the Italian people were perfect hosts - we're ready to book our return next year.

Perfect for families with small children

  • 5 of 5

A truly lovely home that is beautifully looked after, with the most gloriously heaven-scented gardens and olive groves you can imagine. We have two small children and had the most wonderful, relaxing holiday as there was everything we needed already there. As well as the amazing grounds and pool, there are toys and books, DVDs and games. Linda the housekeeper is so helpful, and cooked us dinner for arrival on our first night, and got in all the crucial basic bits we needed like milk and pasta, cheese and wine (!) and gave us local info for the best places to shop and eat. Travelling with small children is stressful but reaching this beautiful home in the hills was just what we needed. The bedrooms are beautiful too, with lovely bedlinen. You can tell this is a much loved home, and it is such a find. We feel lucky to have found it and we'll certainly be back!

Just what you always hope to find but seldom do - a family home which they happen to rent out rather than just a rental home, and it shows in all the lovely touches. Beautifully furnished and generously equipped (lots of books, DVDs, CDs, and games, quality crockery etc) and an immaculately kept English-style garden which even in late July was full of colour and greenery. Great location, too, for exploring not just Tuscany and Umbria, but also Rome 90 minutes away. A real find.

Homely and welcoming - everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

Our week's stay at La Lucciola was the most blissful Umbrian holiday we could have hoped for. The villa encapsulated everything we imagined: homely, charming, stylish, superbly situated and kitted out with everything we needed.

The enormous pool was crystal clear, cleaned twice during our stay (although it barely needed it) and the housekeeper, Linda, was on hand with hardly a moment's notice if we needed anything.

The owners were prompt and thorough with replies to our questions and the deposit was dealt with professionally before and after our stay. We shall certainly be booking La Lucciola again and can't rate it more highly.
