Living in Lucignanello Bandini gives a rare opportunity to experience a historic beautifully restored tiny Borgo dating back to the era of the palaces in the Tuscan cities, and further. Wonderful views from the pool, air full of flower scent and birdsong, fireflies in the night- make sure your programm allows you to enjoy this thoroughly. Dorianna gave excellent advice... More

Our stay at Lucignanello Bandini was outstanding! Beautiful place, beautiful people, beautiful county! The beautiful smell of flowers was in the air every day! We used Bandini as a jumping off point to visit other areas of Tuscany. The pool and the sunsets were to die for. We will definitely go back and I would highly recommend it with no... More

Dear Brad, I would like to thank your father and his good memories about our venue. It seems that his advice was useful and I'm glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our tiny village. In my opinion, you chose the best time of the year to visit Southern Tuscany: green fields, scented flowers in bloom, gorgeous... More

This is the epitome of a Tuscan village. The grounds are beautiful. We stayed in casa remo which was a 2 bedroom house. Awesome fireplace. Quaint, charming and peaceful. Excellent staff! Great location.

I have immediately posted your review on our Facebook page! We like the idea of considering our borgo the "epitome of a Tuscan village". It was recently defined "pristine" and we are very proud of our authenticity! I hope you'll keep good memories of your birthday here in Lucignano d'Asso and I look forward to your next visit.

Our stay here was not only one of the most memorable and delightful parts of a recent three-week trip to Italy, it was an experience that we will treasure forever. Although we are experienced travelers, and have spent quite a bit of time in Italy, this was the first time we've stayed in a self-catering property. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.... More

Thanks so much for your very kind words. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed your first experience at a self-catering venue. Having worked for a long time for luxury hotels, I've tried to give the borgo a similar professional support. Guests renting houses tend to be very independent, but I believe that receiving advice from a local can help... More

An absolutely excellent experience, in a breathtaking location. An opportunity to live in a tiny medieval town surrounded by magnificent hill towns, offering excellent cuisine and outstanding wines. The perfect Tuscany experience made all the better by extremely gracious hosts.

I can not recommend Lucignanello d'Asso highly enough. We have been going there for 3 years and are booked in for fourth. We stay in Casale Sarageto the farm house which is slightly removed from the village. Every year we discover more things to love about it. My only hesitation in writing this review is that we may have trouble... More
