Located in the heart of the Chianti, this farmhouse is situated on a beautiful and renowned wine estate that offers more than the typical Tuscan experience. Not only are there panoramic views of the rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, but there is also the perk of being able to taste wine produced right on the estate. Throughout your stay you will be welcomed by an extremely helpful staff at the reception who can assist you or make recommendations for activities during your trip to Italy.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We were seven adults and the villa was more than spacious to accommodate us. From arrival to departure we could not find a fault.

Enjoyed Most:

Its central location to all of Tuscany and its serenity its comfort.

Enjoyed Least:

We quickly adapted to the Italian version of a "clothes dryer".

Surrounding Area:

Visiting all of the hill towns and vineyards

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina in Chianti was our closest destination (about 4 miles) unable to walk since the dirt road to the main road was about 1/2 mile, and once on the road, too narrow to walk safely

Tips or Restaurants:

Toilet paper is always a useful commodity to have. We dined in Castellina at the Le Tre Porte and had a marvellous dinner with a very attentive wait staff. If you go to Casa Liciana, please give Dora an opportunity to create a most delicious Tuscan dining experience for you; she provided a five-course dinner for us on two evenings (our first and last) and we were not disappointed.

Directions:

GPS is essential. Just finding some of the remote towns/vineyards (Volpaia comes to mind) would not have been possible without it

Check In Out:

The process was seamless with a fine wine tasting awaiting us.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Casa Luciana was perfect for the four couple who stayed there.

It was a gorgeous place and actually had 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Loved it!!

Enjoyed Most:

It was so big, we could have privacy if we wanted to, the view was fantastic and it was in the perfect location to the places we wanted to see.

Enjoyed Least:

Lack of hot water at times, but maybe we didn't know how it worked.

Surrounding Area:

The surrounding area was so pretty, the hills with vineyards everywhere were so pretty.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina in Chianti was the closest small town and also where we got our groceries. No, you must drive to it.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring washcloth and a bar of soap, your own shampoo. They supply a small bar of soap but you may prefer a larger one.

Get your groceries (especially for breakfast) before getting there on Saturday. Grocery store is closed on Sundays. Castellina has a wonderful restaurant Ristorante Albergaccio di Castellina. Call for reservation.

Directions:

We used a Garmin GPS with Italy maps and it took us to the estate where you check in and then a person will lead you to Casa Luciana with the keys.

A very helpful online book is "Tuscany by Car", which has all the coordinates for every place in Chianti which can be uploaded to your GPS. Very, very helpful!!

Check In Out:

The check in was so easy, we even had a wine tasting while we were there. We put our security deposit down in Euros cash when we checked in and a lady came to return it to us Friday morning.

Very simple and easy!

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

We had a great experience and would recommend it to friends.

Enjoyed Most:

We loved the view, the veranda, the pool, and the spaciousness of the villa. We loved Dora!!

Enjoyed Least:

The lighting was very dim throughout the villa.

Surrounding Area:

We enjoyed the vineyards, the beautiful scenery, and the peacefulness.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Lilliano was within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring spices that you like and bags for storing leftovers.

Directions:

Be sure to tell them that they need to look for the Lilliano sign to find the office.

Check In Out:

The check in was somewhat confusing as there were many people trying to get checked in at the same time and there was a big language barrier. Check out went well.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

I could not imagine a better value for the money nor a more relaxing place in all of Tuscany. With three generations of our family in one house, I expected some calamity. The layout was fantastic with enough areas to keep the kids separated from one another when necessary.

Enjoyed Most:

The entire house felt designed by us, for us. The vistas from the patio and the pool area are breathtaking.

Enjoyed Least:

The MiFi device we rented provided spotty service and almost no reception inside the house. I wish there was WiFi there.

Surrounding Area:

Right in the heart of Tuscany. Under an hour to Florence, Siena, Radda, San Gimignano, etc.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Lilliano, but only a tenuta and a cantina are there. It's about 1 km from the villa. Castellina in Chianti is about 7 km from the villa so a bit far to walk.

Tips or Restaurants:

If possible, bring your own kitchen knives. Dora, the local chef, is a wonderful find, be sure to schedule her for a dinner or two.

Directions:

I did use a GPS which got me to the villa, but I needed to know that the office (with the WiFi) was on the right and the Tenuta was on the left.

Check In Out:

Regarding check-in, three different renters all arrived at around the same time, so the delay was understandable. The staff person made the checkout a snap, settling the account the day before we left.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our large group greatly enjoyed our stay in the villa. It served as a hub for each group as we fanned out on day trips. It was always a pleasure to return to the comfort of the villa at the end of the day.

Enjoyed Most:

We appreciated the various living areas and the comfort of the bedrooms and baths. We enjoyed cooking for ourselves most evenings, but we did have the property's cook, Dora, fix us two lovely meals. We were surprised to learn how inexpensive her services were.

Surrounding Area:

We greatly enjoyed the views of the surrounding countryside from the villa. The pool area was beautiful but a bit too cool for use in early October. We enjoyed exploring the smaller towns in the immediate area as well as some of the wineries in Chianti.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina in Chianti is the nearest town but not within walking distance. If your group enjoys wine, seek out the winery in town that will fill your bottles or it sells inexpensive but very drinkable Chianti by the liter in box containers.

Tips or Restaurants:

The villa was well-equipped with laundry and kitchen supplies, pool towels, etc. They also provided two bottle of estate wine and olive oil. If you intend to cook, be sure to bring recipes and small amounts of flour, spices, or other ingredients that typically are sold in larger quantities. There is a Coop (grocery store) in Castellina.

Directions:

The directions were actually to the place we checked in (at the estate tasting room) rather than to the property itself. Because the group came in at different times, that became a problem for the group arriving a day later (Sunday when the tasting room was closed). Thankfully they asked around until they found it.

Check In Out:

They were friendly and helpful with everything.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Excellent. 10 out of 10.

Enjoyed Most:

Quiet and peaceful, situated on a hilltop with magnificent views in all four directions, an infinity pool, a beautiful facility of about 4,500 square feet, and best of all--Dora for eight 5-course dinners. The average costs for these feasts was about 22 Euros per couple.

Enjoyed Least:

Kitchen needs better lighting and updating. The washing machine was an adventure.

Surrounding Area:

Small Chianti towns were best, but the larger cities of Florence and Siena were a short ride.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castellina in Chianti was a three mile drive.

Tips or Restaurants:

You will enjoy it.

Check In Out:

Three bottles of Chianti, one olive oil, and one balsalmic were awaiting us when we arrived---we were in heaven.

Our deposit was returned one day early.

Maid servive occurred every day but Sunday. The two people who performed this duty were affable and entertaining.

Map

The property is located five kilometers from Castellina in Chianti where there are a good number of shops, restaurants, and markets as well as a pharmacy, post office, and tourist information center. Known for its great wines, Castellina in Chianti is a medieval village that was once on the front lines of the wars between Florence and Siena. Today, the old fort in the central square is home to the municipal offices, and the covered gallery has become the magnificent Via delle Volte. Other sights in town include the Castello (which exhibits Etruscan artifacts), the 16th century church of San Salvatore, and its 14th century fresco of the Madonna by Bicci di Lorenzo. Of course you’ll also want to organize a few day trips to some of the other great cities in the area, including Siena, San Gimignano, and Florence.
