My partner and I absolutely loved this villa. It was exactly what we had imagined - a quaint medieval villa atop a hill overlooking a beautiful Tuscan landscape. The staff were angels, grounds were gorgeous and the included breakfast was delicious. It was the highlight of our Italy vacation. Plus, it was perfectly located for short day trips to Siena and San Gimignano. They recommended Colle Bereto as a winery to visit - and if you love wine, like we do, make sure to go. It too was paradise.

My partner and I can't wait to return.

This was a great experience! The hotel is run by friendly people and the staff is always available. They also have a restaurant with a superb food. Although you need a car to get to the hotel, you can walk around and even reach Poggibonsi after a 20-30 minutes walk down the hill. Worth the price.

The Chienti Shire, a place to be... also without a car

Dear Wamberto,
thanks for writing us few days after your departure from our hotel.
You had a really good room during your stay in the Junior Suite Firenze that you had.
We are sorry that you couldn't move too much without a car, our place is really well served to visit Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra, but to see the countryside and the Tuscany's Hills of the Chianti Valley you need a car (otherwise there are private tours).
But we are very happy about your satisfation for your stay in our hotel.
We hope to see you soon again, maybe when you will come frm Brasil to discover more your italian origins.
Hope to see you soon and consider our staff at your disposal to give you a special offer for your next stays

The Villa De San Luchesse is like visiting and living a fairy tale. It is a 12th century villa that has been modernized without losing the historical perspective. The buildings and grounds (beatiful garden, outdoor pool, tennis courts) sit high on a hill overlooking the Chianti wine country and the view out our room window was like something you would see in a painting. We did not reserve the most expensive or largest room so you can rest assured there are no bad views. The room was more than adequate, well appointed, comfortable, and the staff and owners the best. Vasco, Marco, and Dania all go out of their way to insure their guests are comfortable, happy, and well fed. The outdoor dining patio overlooks the valley and the food and wait staff are excellent. Excellent value all around at The Villa San Luchesse. We would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in that area.

This was our second stay at Villa San Lucchese, this time for our wedding. Planning a wedding from Ireland was made unbelievably easy thanks to Lorenzo S, Marcantonio and everyone at The Villa. The wedding day was beyond all our expectations and every moment was a memory to cherish....

We stayed for seven nights and by the time we left, we felt like part of the family.... hence the tears!

Marcantonio was a wonderful host, welcoming to everyone and always interested in his guests. His parents and aunt are so warm and friendly as are all of the staff, Lorenzo B, Donia, Franco, Gerardo, Franchesco, Pasquale....

We are so glad we picked Villa San Lucchese for our big day... it means we have many trips there to look forward to... celebrating our anniversary!

We stayed for ten days, and can only echo others positive reviews. I was a little concerned because it was our first trip to Italy, and Poggibonsi did not sound like a remarkable place to visit. However, the hotel is outstanding, and the town turned out to be accessible, friendly and fun. From the hotel you can walk through vineyards, and visit the nearby church, and the fortezza down the road.

A short drive into town and you can eat at a number of pleasant affordable restaurants. The weekend we were here there was a street market, with food and music. Nutella crepe makers on the street... The high school band performing in the Piazza... We ate several times in the Restaurant Italiano in the Hotel Albergo, which was the closest thing to a diner, because we didn't want to have four hour dinners every night. The ambiance was friendly, loud and the food was still excellent, especially the pizza.

From here it is easy to hit Florence, Siena, plus the hill towns which are plentiful.

The first time we visited it was perfect, the second it was better, the third time better still and you've guessed it - this time better again - and it really was (for us) superb the first time! This family owned hotel was restored by them from being a former convent in 1990. It's concept was to offer a thoroughly friendly, authentic Tuscan, top quality hotel - and it will not let you down. Beautiful views, antique furniture, superb restaurant and terrace, peaceful - and a superb location on the outskirts of Poggibonsi - and an ideal base to explore all Tuscany has to offer. Will we visit again? You bet - and hopefully next time with our family. And if you are looking for a romantic location, or a wedding reception venue - this is the bizz! And if you just want to relax, it's enclosed outdoor swimming pool is delightful as are the numerous lounges. Good, free of charge WiFi and parking, and it might not have a fitness centre or spa, but it is surrounded by delightful walks.

Room Tip: From our experience all are delightful and quiet.

We have picked this hotel via the internet and didn't have a good idea what to expect. Well, in every aspect it exceeded our expectations. Let's start with the location; beautiful! Excellent room, great views, very nice pool and easy parking. The staff was super; very friendly, knowledgeable and always there to help. And the food in the restaurant was great too, also here the staff was very frienldly (even when we came home late, they served us some nice drinks).We stayed here for 12 nights (we used this as a 'base-camp' to visit a view places is Tuscany) and can only say that we really enjoyed our stay very, very much! Thanks for making our holiday such a nice one.
