Hosted by LucaAsk a question
Here we are Lido and Luca. We have given a lot of thought about what we would do in the homes we inherited from our great-grandparents - old Tuscan farmers bound to this land. We had initially planned to sell them but then we realized we would regret this decision terribly. Renovation on the houses was done and we thought it would be nice to share all of this with our guests: the lush countryside surrounding the house and some good wine thus reflecting the simplicity of our lifestyle. So we worked patiently to make Villa Lilla into what see today. We are happy to offer you a place with bright sunlit rooms, large gardens, swimming pool plus numerous sport activities or simply organize your holidays, anniversaries and weddings. Above all we wish you a warm welcome!
Luca purchased this farmhouse in 1990
Why Luca chose Anghiari
The holidays are around the corner and spring is an eccellent time to go on a family adventure. Villa holidays are a great way to discover new destinations and exciting cultures with the family. This very comfortable and private Tuscany villa rental is just right for a few couples or a family and their children looking for an Italian getaway - but with easy access to all of Tuscany. Spend countless hours taking in the views or swimming in your own private pool. The property is really recommended during this covid period. You will receive the best local products, directly at home, including pizza and desserts, services exclusively for you. This villa in Tuscany offers the possibility of relaxing and dining at home, enjoying serene walks, or taking day trips to other historic Tuscan cities like Arezzo or Siena. As an added bonus, the owners are wonderful! If there’s an ideal time to visit Tuscany, it’s June or september As the unsettled weather of early spring gives way to this month’s sunny skies, savvy travelers can score big. It’s during this transitional month that villa renters savor warm weather perks like poolside living—while at the same time explore the region with a fraction of high season’s soon-to-arrive tourists. June also happens to coincide with summer break, making it an unbeatable time to give your kids a taste of authentic European living The peaceful of the Tuscany and Umbria countryside, the location that's in the countryside and at the same time in the city (we are just 5 minutes walking distance to the medieval center of Anghiari and Sansepolcro). The chirping of birds, sunset, sunrise, the large swimming pool, the charming and well furnished accommodations and of course my single presence in some hours of the day allows a privacy you absolute! Yes, I really think that Villa Lilla it's one of the best vacation rentals in Tuscany and the best vacation rental in Anghiari.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Last autumn my wife and I started talking about the summer holiday 2018. We started looking for a house to rent in Tuscany and she found Villa Lilla by “accident”. This villa looked too good to be true but she submitted a price request immediately. This villa was just what we had in mind as the whole family, ourselves, our two sons and their families, wanted to go. Luca and his dad Lido doesn’t know the word no. They are doing whatever possible to make the holiday as comfortable as possible. Whatever your request is, they fix it. They were around every day, either to make sure that the stay was as perfect as possible or to cut the lawn, clean the pool or any other maintenance required. Luca organize whatever you want to do, either a trip to see all the fantastic towns in the surrounding areas, a course to learn how to make Italian pizza or anything else such as a visit to a wine producer in Chianti. Luca did also organize a taxi to Arezzo and the train for the departure of our friends.
