About The Experience

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.

Location Description

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.

Customer Reviews

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!

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.

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.
