Description

The space

The cottage, called Lucignanello, it is an old historical building placed 2km away from Pienza, in the heart of Val d'Orcia.
Being our guests you would have the chance to be in an authentic, exclusive, historical and stunning environment.

All the rooms have INDEPENDENT entrances from the patio and can be independently rented out.

Our family has chosen to work in the countryside using the organic farming since over twenty years. Our philosophy is to use organic products, mainly from our farmhouse, but also local organic farming products.

The room is tastefully furnished, with its fridge, private bathroom, tea station, TV and WiFi Internet connection. At disposal of our guests also a common area: fully furnished kitchen, living room & dining room.

The wi-fi internet connection is free of charge, it works better in the patio where the router is placed than in the rooms, the ancient walls are too tick for the wifi signal to be strong inside.
We did not want to install to many wifi signal repeater in a such "green" and unpolluted location.

The double room called GRANAIO (barn) is composed of a large and sunny double room and a private bathroom with shower.
It is furnished with wooden bed and solid wood furniture, and decorated with terracotta-tiled floor and raftered ceiling.
It has a wonderful view on Monticchiello and Pienza.

Guest access

Private Room with private bathroom, courtyard, common kitchen, living room & dining room.

Interaction with guests

Being our guests you would have the chance to be in an exclusive, historical and stunning environment.
I, Alessandro and my wife Daniela sleep at the first floor of the farmhouse.
My daughter Alessandra sometimes is also there, she does speak good english and can help and guide the guest, if you wish.

The neighborhood

You will be in the hearth of Natural Park of Val d'Orcia where most of the time the silence rules, but at the same time only 2 km of dudty road from Pienza.

The magnificent natural scenery of the Val d'Orcia that extends through the Tuscan hills was inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004.

Val d'Orcia fuses art, landscape and ecosystem in one geographical space, and is the expression of a series of marvelous natural characteristics. It is also the result of and testament to the people that has long-inhabited it. In fact, according to UNESCO this Valley is an exceptional exemplar of the way in which a natural setting was redesigned during the Renaissance (14th-15th Centuries), reflecting the ideals of good governance in the Italian City-State. Additionally, these splendid localities were celebrated by the painters of the Sienese School, which flourished between the 13th and 15th Centuries.

Yes, we live in Val D’Orcia, the land of clays and gullies; a few steps away from Pienza, in a typical homestead on a hill surrounded by olive trees and ancient oaks. In this particular environment we try to share with our guests the taste for silence, simplicity and the sweetness of the country life, in terms of quality and rhythms.

Getting around

Generally speaking in this kind of Italian countryside neighborhood it is advisable to have your own mean of transport (car, motobike, bike, ecc). Public transports are not so well developed. The farmhouse is located 2 km out of Pienza in a dusty road so NO public transports are available here.

Other things to note

The accommodation is in an historical building.
It's rustic, yet fully modernized. The views are unbelievable.
The peacefulness will welcome you after a lot of traveling.

The Val'Dorcia is stunning and has excellent food and lovely people.

Here we establish Agriturismo Lucignanello, we have only 4 rooms to give the guests a exclusive and not crowded place where they can relax and enjoy magical views.

Siamo una famiglia che da oltre vent’anni ha scelto di lavorare in campagna con il metodo biologico. Ci troviamo in Val d’Orcia, la terra delle crete e dei calanchi; vicinissimi a Pienza, sulla sommità di una collina in un casolare chiamato Lucignanello circondato da olivi e querci secolari. In questo ambiente cerchiamo di condividere con gli ospiti il il buon cibo, il silenzio, la semplicità, la soavità dei ritmi e della qualità della vita.
