Luca’s House is on Monte Amiata, an ancient and fairy vulcan!

Luca’s House is in Pescina of Seggiano, on Monte Amiata , in Podere Barbaglia , an old country small-holding dating back to the 19th century. Built entirely in stone it has been renovated respecting the typical architectural characteristics of the area blended with touches of artistic masonry. The result is a small ‘village’ whose rustic hospitality has grown over the years so that an ‘agriturismo’ or farmhouse accommodation , has been created. Two apartments are also available for long or short stays for a total of 14-20 people, with a sauna and whirlpool. The agriturismo, that here we offer , is compoused by 2 connected apartments Petra and Fonte: 3 bedrooms, a large living room with a thermal fireplace, two bathrooms and a small kitchen. It is good for 6 people plus children. Alternatively, the two apartments of the ‘agriturismo’ can be separated, each with its own entrance.
Ciliegio and Brezza are the other apartment of Luca's House.
WiFi connection is avaible inside the house and in the garden. Well accept pets. We are close to termal places as : S. Filippo, Bagni Vignone, Petriolo, and also to winter ski slopes.
The small-holding is in the midst of the countryside, surrounded by the biologically cultivated fields of the farm and by pine and chestnut woods that are typical of the area. It ‘s not unusual to see roe deer crossing the fields at sunset or the more timid porcupines or badgers or wild boar or even a furtive fox. The area it is completely uncontaminated and visitors can see all types of birds in the trees as well as falcons and buzzards circling up in the sky, watch the fireflies in summer and little clouds of butterflies in spring. The place is ideal for bird-watching enthusiasts, trekkers, mountain bikers and not far practicing paragliding. Ideal to stage Photo Tour, or to get your artistic shots.

Located in the cross area where Maremma and Val D’Orcia Nature Park meet, Mount Amiata is an ancient volcano (1774 m.) with an abundance of underground and springs thermal waters. . The closest thermal bath (20 minutes by car) is at San Filippo; in the area there are thermal baths at Bagni Vignone or San Casciano up to those at Petriolo and Saturnia.
Not distant the sea side Argento coast(one hour by car) .
The ski slopes are about 10 minutes by car from the farm: in winter there are several kilometers of slopes equipped with two chair lifts and ski lifts.
Mount Amiata has always been a crossroads of intense spiritual activity thanks to its churches and to the Via Francigena(from VIII century pilgrim itinerary coming from north europe) which flanks it in the north. At the beginning of the 19th century it witnessed the rise of David Lazzaretti’s social-Christian community on Mount Labro. At the moment it is home to Merigar, the seat of the Dzogchen Community,one of the biggest Tibetan Buddhist centres in Italy.
In the area of Seggiano and Pescina you can visit the Spoerri Garden, an international contemporary art museum by Daniel ,a museum of contemporary art created by Daniel Spoerri which attracts an international audience.
From Santa Fiora and Arcidosso to Pienza and Montepulciano there is a succession of medieval villages and Renaissance towns to visit and numerous local activities in any season.

We booked Lucas house for two families in mid January looking for a peaceful country retreat with a fireplace and great location away from city life. Luca was a great communicator and very responsive. His place was exactly what should be expected of an Agriturismo--quaint, farm setting but updated with modern comforts. We enjoyed sled bobs and skiing at a perfect mountain just minutes from his place that we didn't even realize was there! (Make sure to bring snow chains or 4 wheel drive. As his driveway and the surrounding mountain roads can be tricky when icy). We also spent a day at Bagni San Filippo which was adventurous and relaxing--outdoor natural hot springs in the cold of winter was a real treat. This place would be even more breathtaking in the green of spring/summer or colors of fall. Luca was there to help and made sure we were comfortable. Overall I would highly recommend a stay here especially for kids and families looking for a central location away from the congestion of a city.

We had the luxury of staying in Luca's beautiful home for one amazing month and it was a very memorable experience. Tuscany has always been my dream vacation, and Luca & Stella helped make it a reality. His home is up on the Amiata mountain, which is quite a unique and beautiful area of Tuscany, with a ski resort at the top which would be a really fun experience for the winter. It's quite the remote area so renting a car is a very good idea. The apartment was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed at through Airbnb, inside and out. It is very clean, spacious and we absolutely loved the wood burning stove and clawfoot tub. The outside area is stunning, with little ponds, rivers, cats (the sweetest cats ever) and plenty of seating around the home. We were never bored, there are so many beautiful areas to visit in Tuscany. Luca has a list of recommended towns, hot springs, restaurants, and cool areas to visit that we highly recommend people taking his advise. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home inviting us over for dinner and drinks twice and introducing us to their friends. We sincerely felt like family by the time we left this beautiful place and hope to return again one day.

Most wonderful time. The pictures don't show how beautiful the place is. The house is a pearl, made with so much love and beautiful details everywhere, and very comfortable too. Fully equipped kitchen, tastiest drinking water, great bath, romantic bedroom,and fantastic sitting areas outside. We loved the wild garden and the fields and forests around, no words to describe, just magical! So much open space and beautiful nature to explore with the small paths beatween the hills. This stay was beyond expectations, our favorite place of the trip to Italy. only sorry is that we could only stay for 2 nights, this place deserves a longer holiday to enjoy all it has to offer. Grazie Luca for everything!

The area of Luca house is very welcoming with amazing views on Monte Amiata. It's very quiet, beautifully restored and it's pleasant spending time in the large and zen garden. The appartments are well equiped, beds confortable, everything is clean and organised. Luca is a friendly and accomodating host. The last day, he cooked very good pizza for us. We were a group of friends and spent a wonderful week. The area is interesting to visit : medieval villages, thermal baths, contemporary art garden... I would recommend staying in this relaxing place and I hope to return myself.

Incredible location with spectacular views. Enjoyed the outdoor seating area and lovely walks straight from the house. Luca kindly invited us to a party with his friends which featured true oven baked pizza in the garden. Go with the knowledge that is rural and the nearest shop is a ten minute drive away. The kitchen is basic and could use updating of utensils and plates, but the pots were excellent.

Luca was very welcoming. He showed us around and we were very happy with our little apartment. It was very cute, and the bed was super comfortable. It was very quiet and great for sleeping! We were able to have a fire one of the nights, which was lovely. We loved meeting Luca's cats who were super friendly and always wanted to be petted :) The location was very close to Bagni San Filippo and it was central to the regions we wanted to visit in Tuscany. We were happy with Luca's recommendation for a great pizza place just down the road in Pescina! All in all a great stay. Highly recommended.
