Lucca's mountain retreat is beautiful, peaceful. It is quite remote and you need a car, but so worth the trip. Lucca was a great host. We needed a guitar to prepare a song for a friends birthday...Lucca went and bought new guitar strings so we could use the guitar at his house. So grateful to him !!!
Beautiful place in the country side. The view is breathtaking. The appartement was charming, but more rustic and isolated from the village than we thought. Luca and his wife were very welcoming. There were three cats that always wanted to come inside the appartement - a little inconvenient for us with our baby of six months. There was a little incident - an ant invasion - but it was out of the host's control. Luca offered us another appartement that was also very nice. If you want to experience the countryside away from the city's noise, this is the place to go!
We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Luca's house. It was rustic, secluded and peaceful. Luca was very welcoming and helpful with local knowledge - went on to spend a lovely morning at the hot pools nearby.
Il posto è stupendo, un oasi di pace! Luca è un ospite fantastico, presente e di compagnia se richiesto e praticamente invisibile se invece volete godervi la vostra privacy!! Ci torneremo sicuramente appena possibile!!!
It is a beautiful and peaceful home up on the mountain side. It's artistic, bright, full of space and colourful. We really enjoyed our stay and felt that Luca was a great host. We highly recommend it!
Really beautiful, idyllic place! This is a beautiful old stone farmhouse in the woods, only a few minutes from a couple of small villages and right in the middle of all the famous Tuscan landscapes. The apartment was very clean, colourful and had everything we needed. Luca was flexible with our arrival time and very responsive to our communication. This is truly a little paradise and perfect for discovering the San Filippo baths, Pienza, and other nearby villages.
