Fantastic vacation home - clean, quiet and in a picture perfect Tuscan location
This home exceeded our already high expectations that we had after reading all the nice reviews and seeing the gorgeous pictures. The house is located on a quiet road up the hill which provides perfect views all around and allows for natural ventilation. The house is spacious, clean and exceptionally well furnished. The large kitchen is very well equipped and has more than enough dishes, pots, condiments etc. so one can actually fill up the dishwasher.
Margherita welcomed us with open arms, a glass of wine and a variety of Tuscan specialties. She provided helpful tips for everything to do and how to get there. Thank you, Margherita!
We especially enjoyed the beautiful garden that surrounds the house and the many options that are offered to have meals overlooking the vineyards or relaxing in a chair while sipping a coffee in the morning or a glass of Chianti at sunset. Sunsets are unbeatable and right behind the house over the valley.
We have rented many houses via VRBO but this one has been by far the best - from location to luxury. The attention to detail shows the pride and love, Margherita has for her home.
We highly recommend this beautiful house.
It was a dream. Felt like we were in a movie.
The trip started with a warm welcome from Margherita. From that we knew, it would be wonderful and it was. The views, front and back were amazing. Enhance further with wonderful wine from the surrounding area. We made a pact to come back, this time for two weeks. Thank you for an amazing stay.
Thank you so much Mark!
You are very kind guests, so kind and jovial.
I really appreciated your politeness and I'm
very happy that your stay at Villa Lucardo was
Looking forward to seeing you and your family again, all the best,
Our family of six, including me and my husband, our daughter, son-in-law, and two teenaged grandchildren spent ten wonderful days at Villa Lucardo. Margherita and Giuseppe met us on our first day at the villa and provided a thorough overview of the property, local wineries, villages, grocery shopping, transportation and even made a reservation at Cera' una volta, a local restaurant we thoroughly enjoyed. In addition, Margherita provided us with several other options for dining that included gluten free menus as my grandchildren are celiac. Fortunately, Italy is very progressive and you are never far from gluten free options for dining or grocery shopping. Margherita also arranged for Rossana, a local chef to come to Villa Lucardo to provide a cooking lesson and an extraordinary meal for us that included appetizers, entree and dessert. My grandson, son-in-law and I participated in the cooking lesson which was so informative and fun! Rossana was fabulous. The villa is central to so many of the main areas. We were able to drive to most major sites or take the train, a short drive from the villa. The kitchen was well stocked and the villa overall was immaculate. The beds, were comfortable, the furnishings very lovely and the views and grounds beautiful. Although there was an extreme heatwave in Italy during our visit (temperatures in the 90s most days) after a day of touring we would return to the villa, open the doors and windows and enjoy the breezes that cooled off the home every evening. We want to thank Margherita and Guissepe for sharing their beautiful home and making our Italy vacation memorable and very enjoyable.

Our family had the great pleasure of staying at Lucardo Villa for ten days in May, 2017. We found this to be an exceptional property and the owners were very cordial and hospitable. The villa is located in Lucardo, a small village that is part of Montespertoli. It is located in the Tuscan hills equidistant from Florence, Pisa, Siena and Volterra/San Gimignano. The setting is spectacular, with sunrises out the back yard overlooking the valley below and sunsets out the front yard overlooking another valley below. The pictures in the listing are representative, but the real views are breathtakingly spectacular!
The house is very well appointed and very comfortable. Four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. All bathrooms are updated and contemporary. All of the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well provisioned and we were lacking for nothing when we cooked numerous dinners during our stay. Although the house is very beautiful and comfortable, we found ourselves outside most of the time enjoying the spectacular views from both the front and back yards.
Even though Lucardo is a very small, rural location, it is very conveniently located. There are numerous excellent restaurants in the local area and several options for grocery shopping among the larger towns of Montespertoli, Tavarnelle and Certaldo.
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Lucardo Villa. It was much more than a home away from home, it was at stay in paradise. We thank Margherita and Guiseppe for opening their house to us and allowing us to enjoy a true Tuscan experience. They are wonderful hosts and we highly recommend staying at Lucardo Villa if you are taking a Tuscan vacation.
Thank you George and your family, for your beautiful review of our property. We are very pleased you and your family had a wonderful stay at Villa Lucardo and enjoyed the amazing beauty of Tuscany. We hope to have you and your family in the near future!.
Amazing...that's all I can say!!!
Myself and six family members spent a week at this charming villa, we could not have found a better place to stay. The location was wonderful and we were able to explore Florence and many of the close surrounding towns in the beautiful Tuscan area. The little village of Lucardo has two very nice restaurants that we enjoyed very much and a lovely church, it is within walking distance, but we drove most of the time. There are also supermarkets in some very close neighboring towns that we went to a couple of times. Margherita the owner greeted us with open arms and was so informative, she answered any and all questions that we had. I must tell you that the views from this villa were spectacular, so if you are looking for a true Tuscan experience this is the place for you. We were there in early September and although the weather was still quite warm it didn't matter that there wasn't any air conditioning because the breezes that blew through the villa were simply wonderful, especially at night. I just can't say enough about our stay at Villa Lucardo, I only wish that we could have stayed longer...thank you so much Margherita for all of your hospitality, it was truly magical!!!
Thank you so much Susan!
I was impressed from the beautiful unite family you are, so kind and jovial!
Hope to host you again!
Best wishes to you all,
A stylish villa in the Tuscan hills with stunning panoramic vistas
Villa Lucardo is a very stylish 4 bedroom residence in a perfect location on the top of Tuscan hills. It was kept cool by prevailing breezes despite temperatures of 40C by day during our stay in mid July. The completely restored construction kept out the summer heat so there was no need for air conditioning. The Villa had beautiful decoration and quality furniture with a large, well equipped, practical kitchen ideal for families and large parties. It had plenty of outside dining space with shade if required. 3 of the 4 bedrooms had ensuite toilet, hand basin, bath/shower or walk-in shower. Only 1 of the bedrooms lacked an ensuite shower/bath but had a toilet and wash basin. All bathrooms were beautifully decorated, modern and worked perfectly. Even the evening 'flying bugs' were kept at bay by highly efficient exterior door and window protective screens. There was plenty of parking space and a large well maintained garden.
Lucardo is a small hamlet with 2 excellent restaurants within walking distance (15 mins walk). Nearest shops for bread and and milk are 10-15 min drive. Nearest supermarkets are all about 20 mins drive away. We found several very good food markets, Chianti vineyards and restaurants within 15-30 mins drive of Villa Lucardo.
Margherita, our hostess, greeted us on arrival and attended when we left the residence. We had little need to contact her during our stay but she made herself available by mobile if required.
All in all we were very satisfied with the price, facilities, decor and service we received. We would certainly like to return again.
It was my pleasure to host you and your family at Villa Lucardo, a place rebuilt with tons of love. My delight you appreciated our home, in fact, Villa Lucardo, is situated in a perfect place with amazing views and weather, and beautiful families as yours are more than welcome. I'm so thankful for your prompt and kind review, rich of details and information for our next guests in the future. Naturally, I would be more than happy if you all come back to visit Villa Lucardo.
All the best,
Situated at a height of 440m, the spectacular medieval village of Lucardo is one of the three most important sights in Tuscany, from which you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the relaxing landscape of the Chianti hills.
Its strategic position allows you to easily reach Florence, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano, as well as the opportunity to visit castles and numerous wineries that with their ancient cellars, offer visitors traditional wine tasting and menus in the area.
Its feudal past is witnessed by the famous Castle of Lucardo, dating back to the year 1000 built on a pre-existing Etruscan settlement.
