“Welcomed like family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Traveling with three children always has its challenges and finding a good value on accomodations is at the top of the list. We have stayed at Villa San Lucchese on two occasions now and LOVE it! The family loves our kids and we love the value of a good night's sleep and breakfast the next morning. We shared stories over breakfast and learned helpful tips for exploring the Tuscany hills surrounding San Lucchese. We can't wait to go back again.

If you are a fan of Tuscany and dream about those beautiful rolling hills, this is your place. The hotel transpires charm and you won't even pay too much attention to the old rooms.

The bathroom is OK and like most of Italy, the towels smell vinegar. Like I said, the room needs update: the bed head board MUST go NOW. But if you were looking for a great hotel room for low cost you could have stayed in the interior of Wisconsin, right? You came here for the magic, and this hotel delivers that and more. :-)

Breakfast is good and the staff is really friendly, but not in a rush (nothing wrong with that).

We had certain difficulty finding the hotel as the GPS was outdated and showed it at a different place. Even if the address says "Poggibonsi", this hotel is not technically in Poggibonsi, but in Localita San Lucchese. it is located right beside the Church of San Lucchese, more on the country side, off a park.

The hotel is gay friendly but we haven't seen any other gays there when we were there.

If you are looking to see the sunflowers, you need to go between May and August only.

Our family stayed in private adjoining rooms with views out to the Tuscany hills, sunrise and castle remains in the distance. We arrived in the pitch of winter's night and were generously and warmly received. This ambience prevailed throughout our 3 night stay. With excellent accommodation, breakfast included, the calm chime of church bells and equidistance between Florence and Siena, we would highly recommend Villa San Lucchese.

If you are looking for an American Style resort, stay at the Four Seasons in Florence, but if you want to be treated like an honored quest in someone's home this is it. The villa sets on a hill and offers beautiful views of the countryside. This Villa was restored by the owners, Father, Son and Father's sister, they are always looking for a way to help you enjoy your stay. Very good location for touring the countryside. We would go back in a heartbeat. Yes the decor is a little tired, but that just seems to add to the homely feeling of the Villa. I am a travel professional and this property passed my "recommend to clients" test.

What a wonderful experience!!

We had originally booked to stay 2 nights at Villa San Lucchese but we loved it so much that we extended our stay for a week.

The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The views from our room were just magical.

The quality of food and service in the restaurant was first class! We ate there every single night and were never disappointed.

The staff were friendly, helpful and made us feel right at home. They went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

The room was large, spacious and well appointed. Everything was clean and in working order (unlike so many of the other places we stayed).

Staying here was truly one of the highlights of our trip. We cannot wait to go back! I highly recommend staying there.

We stayed only one night and we booked with a coupon. I don't know if my expectations were too high but my impression is that the hotel is not really
I mean, if you are looking for a old Italian Villa on the top of a hill is a nice place, it's near different touristic places such as S. Gimignano, Florence and Siena, staff people are kind and helpful.
However, the room furniture is old and so the bathroom, such a basic one, only hydromassage is something you appreciate. We had also an aperitif with 3 glasses of different wine accompanied with 3 different food, but in fact, we had only a small dish with salami and cheese. Breakfast was ok, but I expected something more from Tuscanian hospitality.

The best place to discover Toscana. Excelent rooms, very nice atmosphere and an outstanding attention of their owners. Strongly recommended. At the center of Toscana you can go north to Florence (40km) or south to Siena (30km) travelling by car through small villages with beatiful sights. Breakfast was very good and having dinner was a great expirience.
