“Lovely place for our 20th wedding anniversary”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We love Italy. We particularly like Tuscany and Umbria. Villa San Lucchese epitomises the delights of these. It is run by some very calm, happy, and slightly potty (eccentric) owners. The room was beautiful, with stunning views of the rear garden reaching up and out to one of those blissfully sunny and big Italian skies. The food in the restaurant (served on a terrace overlooking Poggibonsi and the valley beyond) was local cuisine at its best. One tuscan pepper stew we are still attempting to perfect back at home. As good is the fact that it is a reasonable bus ride (from Poggibonsi) to Florence, Siena and other attractions. When the only taxi service in the town wasn't available (according to reports he stops when he has had enough for the day!) our fantastic hosts popped down into town and picked us up. All in all it was a most marvellous and gorgeous 20th anniversary gist to us both. Thank you.

Room Tip: Cliched, I realise but we asked for a room with a view!

Thanks to you for your words.
To try an amazing experience you have to be in a not boring place, where something that you couldn't image can happen.
That's true, we're not an Hilton or a common 4star hotel, we are something special... an old Villa on the top of a hill, not far from the center of Poggibonsi in the heart of Tuscany and Chianti Valley. We have to create the atmosphere of this Villa and your words explain us that this is exactly what we want to be: an experience of a travel.
Thanks again for your visit and consider us always at your disposal for your next trip

WOW, what a great way to end our 2 week stay in Italy...we only spent 3 nights at Villa San Lucchese, and wish we could have spent several more :). The family & staff are amazing, welcoming, and made the stay even more delightful. BRAVO to Vasco, Metella, Marco, Lucia, Lorenzo S., Lorenzo B., Gerardo, Pasquale, Giuseppe and Emiliano!!! Our room had a million-dollar view, beautifully decorated and clean, with a jacuzzi tub. The food was wonderful...be sure to try Emiliano's Chocolate Salami (dessert). The grounds were beautiful and the pool looked inviting during warmer weather. Villa was also within walking distance to a Castle, which offers food/wine with an amazing view too! All this within easy driving distance to all the best sites in Tuscany! Can't wait to go back!

this is a very dingy hotel that is desperately in need of renovation, i cannot comprehend how it has been reviewed so well on tripadvisor . the breakfast was poor , the bar was closed in the evening. it has beautiful gardens and a lovely pool but not really applicable to the review in april

not at all child friendly, the windows are quiet low,need to keep them closed if you have children

Dear Daryl,
thanks for your words. Also a disappointed experience review is a reason to understand what we have to change to be better and to help us to understand what we have to do to satisfy all the behaviours of our guests.
We can't change to much the building, as I wrote down before, because the meaning of the stay in an old tuscan Villa is living an experience of culture: our Villa was a convent made to hospitate the pilgrims, and it has to keep something about this or you're going to lose the meaning of staying in our hotel.
Probably we have to change some details in our room, but they're equipped with the most modern comfort: high spped Wi-Fi, high quality maitress, big Sat TV LCD, air condition, hydromassage bath tube and a sorrounding view that you get from teh window of your room on the Chianti's Valley.
Please, we invite you to come back to visit us again to make you change idea about our hotel and understand that you can live an experience like most of teh tripadvisor guests.

We stayed in the hotel for a week. Good service on arrival, which only improved during our stay. Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and valued guests. The owner also arranged some magnificent trips for us throughout our stay and he gave us a few regional wines when we left (told him we were interested in wines, because of our hotel management background).

Room quality could be a bit better, it's all slightly old, although still good. Toast machine at breakfast makes a funny sound. But one way or another, these minor issues have a certain charm.

We would go back any time and fully recommend this hotel

Dear Mr/Mrs,
thanks for your appreciament of our hotel and our work.
We always improve ourself in the way of the good relax and good stay of our guests.
Our goal is always your satisfation.
Our rooms are old, our villa is old, we're renewing the details of the room to increase these aspects. But, we can't change to much, our Villa is an old Villa, renewed, but it has to keep the original aspects and the historical meaning to be hospitate in a Villa made in the past for the pilgrims hospitality.
Thanks again for your words, we will be happy to have you again in the future as our guests.
We've just opened the swimming pool and our external area is really nice in this period...

We found this hotel on Trip Advisor, looked at the hotels website and gave them a call. A very helpful chap answered the phone, and he spoke English! Booked a double room over the phone, no need for credit card details etc, just needed to know what time we were arriving.

When we approached up a narrow lane the hotel appeared and was idealic!

Our room was very clean, comfortable and good value. We ate in the restaurant and the meal and service were superb! The waiter was Geraldo who could speak French, English and of course Italian. He helped us with our choice of meal and wine.

Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Geraldo was serving once again, very smartly dressed and efficient.

This is a Family run hotel and everyone is very friendly and helpful, we would certainly stay here again and thoroughly recommend it. This hotel is all good!

The views over the Tuscany hills are breathtaking!

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel will give you an excellent view over the Hills of Tuscany. Rooms at...

During our stay at the Villa San Lucchese much to my dismay I developed a nasty toothache and was pretty unwell for most of our stay. I can't thank the staff enough for their efforts in trying to help me. They would prepare a breakfast tray for me so that I could sleep in and were always out to help.

The hotel is in a lovely location. The views from the terrace are breathtaking. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable and there is free Wi fi available in the whole hotel.

I would stay at the San Lucchese again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here September 2011. We enjoyed our drive here from Rome as the scenery along the was was beautiful. We were welcomed by the family that runs this little castle. They are very sweet and genuinly care about you! If you look up the history of this establishment in wikipedia, you will appreciate your experience here all the better. It has an amazing history. We had a triple room (One queen and one twin). The room was spacious and the bathroom was modern and updated. The rug could have used a cleaning and the bed coverings were a little old and worn but overall the ammenities were very nice and clean for the most part.We loved walking around the grounds and breakfast in the enclosed patio was excellent. We looked forward to breakfast here everyday. The front desk can help you book wine tours that pick you up at the hotel. We went to a cute little restraunt La Perla De Chianti which was a short drive from the hotel. The food was good and the service was friendly. We loved the Poggibonsi area. It was nice to enjoy some quiet time after all our tours in Rome. When we think of all the places we stayed in Italy, Villa San Lucchese was our favorite!
