“My idea of heaven still is to drive the gravel farm roads of Umbria and Tuscany, very pleasantly lost.” – Frances Mayes
The Villa is located in Lucignano’s countryside right at the border among Arezzo and Siena provinces, in the area called Val di Chiana. Strategically located between Rome (180 km by highway – about 90 minutes), Firenze (90 km by highway – around 50 minutes), Siena and Arezzo (both 35 km, about 20 minutes), this little piece of heaven is easy to reach and a perfect location to explore the Tuscany.
We took personally care of the renovation paying attention to every single detail. Although embracing the typical Tuscan style, the Villa has acquired a feel of originality and elegance combined with all the comforts of modern life with an outstanding old kilim carpets collection in all rooms and common areas.
