About the property

Newly restored farmhouse in quiet, scenic surroundings in Tuscany, Chianti

Nestled amid vineyards, in the heart of Tuscany, the beautiful farmhouse is a typical rural stone building with private pool (13 x 5,5 m), for up to 10/12 people.

Thanks to its dimensions and the layout of the rooms, the villa is particularly suitable for several families as it allows every group to have its own privacy. Preserved and newly renovated in the original Tuscan style, the villa features all modern amenities and is lovingly furnished.

This farmhouse is beautifully situated on a hill above the village of Lucolena, which is part of the municipality of Greve in Chianti. Ideal for those who seek tranquillity, want to walk in the surrounding forests or visit the mediaeval villages and castles nearby. The villa is also situated right in the middle of the cultural triangle of Florence (28 km), Siena (40 km) and Arezzo (50 km). There is also the possibility of visiting nearby Chianti Classico wineries and buy wine, extra-virgin olive oil and the famous Tuscan desert wine Vin Santo.

Poggetta's main entry is an arched doorway that leads to a living room with an open fireplace, sofa, sat-TV and CD and DVD-player.

Continuing through another arch with glass door, you enter the dining room with high ceiling and original stone walls. The room is furnished with a table and chairs for 10 /12 people to sit comfortably. On one side of the room, there are large windows and a glass door providing the room with plenty of light and access to a furnished garden with view of the pool area.

On the left of the dining room there is the kitchen. It is well equipped with fridge, freezer, microwave oven, dishwasher, gas hobs, oven, water boiler and coffee machine. There is access to a bathroom with shower. A door leads out to a furnished garden with table and barbecue area. On one side of the room, there are stairs leading to a balcony/gallery, where you can find a twin bedroom.

On the other side of the dining room, there is a large twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower. From this room, stairs lead up directly to a comfortable double bedroom. On request, it is possible to add another single bed. The layout of the two rooms is very suitable for a family.

Going back to the main living room, on its left you can find a second kitchen with gas hobs, fridge, coffee machine and oven. There is also a convertible sofa bed which sleeps 2, sat-TV and a table with chairs. The highlight of the room is an old stone oven. From this room you can access another furnished garden on the front of the villa. Upstairs, there is a large double bedroom (convertible upon request into a twin bedroom) and an ensuite bathroom with shower.

On the right of the main living room, you can find a lounge area with comfortable sofa, Bluetooth stereo system and pellet stove. From here you can get to an anteroom leading to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower. This part of the villa is accessible for disabled guests.

For children: 2 swings and a sand-box; baby cot and high chair on request.

At the reception of the winery Fattoria L'Ottavo (600 m away) you can buy local products such as wine and olive oil. In the village (walking distance 10 min) there are a food shop, a bar and a pizzeria, the latter open on the weekends.

The heart of Tuscany retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfecto! We were a family of six adults and it met all our needs. It was wonderful to retreat to after spending the day exploring Tuscany. Our hostess and host were lovely. There is even a handicapped accessible bedroom/bathroom! Grazie Piccarda and family!

Chianti at its best

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of nine friends travelling to Italy for the first time, for the majority of the group. We drove from Rome to Lucolena and were able to find the villa relatively easily, albeit after a few wrong exits. The villa was situated at the end of a steep gravel driveway, which put our driving skills to the test. In Chianti standards it was really nothing but to novice drivers it was a challenge at first, but by the end of our trip we were expert. It was a gorgeous villa and fit us perfectly. It was a spacious home with two kitchens and 4 bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable so we slept very well. The view was spectacular and serene. The pool was small but just what we needed on those very hot ( unusually warm summer) days. The location was close to Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Figline. Although the distance was not far ( 10 KM) driving the switch backs on the way there made it a longer drive. It was hard at night but again after a few days were we more comfortable with it. We did a day trip to Florence but did not drive there as it is always a hassle to find parking etc. so our host advised us to get the "fast" train to Florence which started we got in Figline and were in Florence in 30 min. I highly recommend doing it that way. Our hosts were so very helpful and sweet, we had direct access to them via WhatsApp, any questions we had or advice was given swiftly. They also helped to get us a driver to take the group to Cinque Terre for the day. I rented a bike (road) for the week from Ramuzzi Cycles in Greve. Grocery shopping is close by in Figline- Coop. There is a cute ristorante on the road to Greve that we went to the last night in Lucolena which we regret not going to before, it was about 3 kms away and literally on the main road to Greve in Dudda. We sat on the street literally and had a few drinks. We also took a drive to The Mall that is the outlet mall for high end brands like Prada, Gucci, Tods, Hugo Boss etc. It was easy to find and you can get good deals but still obviously expensive. We drove to Montepulciano, Montalcino, Seina and environs. I recommend going to Solociccia for lunch or dinner, in Panzano in Chianti, ( Antica Macelleria Cecchini). I would highly recommend Pogetta, we were so fortunate to have such a wonderful host, we could not be more grateful. And the home made lasagna was a god send. Thank you so much!

Fantastic retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

La Poggetta is a beautiful and tastefully decorated retreat. The property is set in a peaceful private location surrounded by vineyards and breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and scenery. The owners take great care of this home and are absolutely wonderful to interact with.

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in Tuscany and would definitely recommend this home for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of big city life yet close enough to enjoy all of the sights and attractions of Pisa, Firenze (Florence), the coast, and of course the beautiful towns, scenery, and attractions Chianti and Tuscany have to offer.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was probably the best house and location for any holiday we have experienced. The house was beautiful and excellent for multiple families. The house was well equipped and had views to die for.

The house is a reasonable distance from any village and is located up a very steep gravel path so a car is essential.

The swimming pool was smaller than we expected but was still large enough for us all to have fun in. The pool area was lovely with plenty of loungers, parasols and even a comfortable swing lounger.

The owners were very helpful and were very quick to respond to all our questions and requirements. We also much appreciated the home cooked lasagne which was a very kind gesture from the owners.

If you are looking for a beautiful Tuscan location set in the middle of grape vines and olive trees and traditional house then I would highly recommend this house.

The property is wonderful. The views are amazing and the garden is beautifully kept. The pool, whilst small, is immaculately kept. Sufficient loungers for 8 are provided with plenty of shade. 2 barbecues and 2 separate lovely spaces to eat.

The house is lovely - the space in fact nicer than the online pictures. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need.

The owners were friendly and accommodating.

A truly magical place to spend time in Tuscany. Yes the road is steep - but the pay off is the views! I would fully recommend to anyone.

Great Villa, pretty much in the middle of nowhere. (Exactly what we wanted)

  • 5 of 5

it is about a 15 min walk into the tiny hamlet of Lucolena, which you should plan on eating dinner there at least one night on the weekend. Great food/drink at great prices.

We were 6 people and the villa was perfect for us. The villa was exactly what we had hoped for. Very authentic with awesome views. The gravel drive coming up the hill is a bit of a challenge, but you get used of it. We found the beds to be on the firm side, but bearable. It was clean and ready for us as promised.

The roads getting to the Villa or nearby towns are very hilling and winding. Br prepared for some slow going.

Just as a heads up, unlike most homes that we have rented in the past. There was basically no "extras" left in the house. Most have left over supplies from the previous renters, but there was none here. I think the only thing left for us was pepper. (no tin foil, spices, honour bar, paper supplies etc. etc.)
