“Breathtaking nature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2008

The place is and old farmhouse restored recently to the smallest details, divided to apartments with different sizes and each with it's own thym which makes it very unique.
Although the owners is leaving in the near by village, the apartments are maintained daily, kitchen is fully equipped and an adequate breakfast is being served with fresh products.
lucciolabella is situated in the heart of Val D'orcia, a national park
south of the city of Siena.
There are many attractions around, from small poetic villages, historical monuments and various outdoor activities (hiking, biking etc.).
There is no swimming pool.
The nearest village is 10-15 min drive away (so you might as well plan your groceries shopping in advance).
There is no internet connection in the apartments (correctly...you are on vacation in Toscana...).
The up hill road to the house is not well paved.

In short, highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The farmhouse is situated within the 'Lucciola Bella' Nature Riserve, south west of Pienza in a small corner of the typical landscape of the crete senesi. In fact the striking feature of the nature reserve is this unusual landscape of the 'calanchi' and 'biancane' formed during the last Ice Age. These particular formations are host to important but rare plants and wildlife especially birds. The farmhouse has a long history, it was 1924 when the Marquess Origo bought the farm at 'La Foce' along with numerous hectares of land. It was a time when the Val d'Orcia was inhospitable with no forms of vegetation. The Marquess together with his wife undertook an enormous land improvement programme in the area and amongst other things they also built several farmhouses (Lucciola Bella is one ), giving life to a new political and social era. The famous road with its cypress trees which leads to the farmhouse was created by the architect Cecil Pinsent who also designed the villa and the gardens at 'La Foce'. 'Lucciola Bella' offers guests accommodation in 6 apartments which have been restored without altering the original structure of the old farmhouse. Great attention has been paid to detail and comfort. Surrounding the house is a large garden with a magnificent view of the Val d'Orcia with Radicofani, San Quirico, Castiglion d'Orcia, Pienza and finally the imposing Mount Amiata.... A fantastic landscape ideal for a calm and relaxing holiday. ... more   less
