6th time back for our family and recognising others too. Friendly family owned/managed hotel with very good restaurant with beautiful sunset view over Tuscany. Friendly staff and very good service. Nice rooms - many with magnificent view. Perfect location for daytrips in Tuscany and Chianti. Super value for money.

While our room and bathroom at this Tuscan beauty were a bit small, everything else about the Villa is grand. The view from the outdoor terrace where we ate dinner was amazing, as was the food. A limited menu but true to form the staff at the villa is here to please, so just ask if there is nothing to your liking on the menu. It is a testament to the ownership that the waiter who served us on our last visit 8 years ago, is still there- he has been serving with grace and elegance for 18 year!
This family run business is welcoming and it was like we never left. Daily breakfast (included) is a feast and here too if you ask you will receive.
The grounds are peaceful and perfect to enjoy the serenity of the picturesque valleys. The pool is huge by any standards and is surrounded by ample lounge chairs and umbrellas.
Credit Marcantonio Ninci, the very hands on and very visible overseer of the day to day operations. The Ninci family has owed this special property since the late 80's.
Perfectly located within 20-30 minutes of beautiful towns and cities, Villa San Lucchese is a wonderful spot in a breathtaking setting.
And on the morning of your first day, get up very early, open the shutters and be amazed by the morning light.

A fantastic find. We stayed an extra day 4 in total. We visited in April, days were warm nights cool. We ate 3 nights at the villa and 1 night in town, food was excellent, dinner and breakfast. 15-20 min walk to town with access to bus's and trains to Florence. 11 KM to San Gimnano. Across the road there is ruins a beautiful morning walk and we didn't see another tourist!
The gardens were beautiful at the Villa, so was the pool and the view. There is a church across the road.
The staff were great and very helpful.
Our room was great we had a spa bath and you could look out the window to a beautiful view. Bed was comfy, room was large.
I would recommend this Villa, I would love to go back.
As someone wrote before if you don't go you will miss out.

Villa San Lucchese sits atop a hill with panoramic views of the Tuscan wine country.
Ideally, situated for wine country exploration and side trips to Tuscan hill towns and historic San Gimignano, just 9 kilometers away.

The staff was friendly and engaging. Dinner in the Villa's Dinning Room was one of our best meals while in Italy. A very substantial buffet breakfast, with italian baked goods, and cakes was included. Our double room and bath were quite large, and overlooked the gardens and vineyards. Although, the room decor was in need of a little updating. Over all, a very pleasant stay and extremely good value.

We had a gret time at the San Lucchese this week. The hotel sits in a beautiful location, with amazing views of the Tuscan countryside. The staff was very nice and helpful. Definitely worth visiting. The restaurant in the hotel was very good and so was the breakfast.

Thanks for your words. We hope that everyone will enjoy the hotel in the same way that you've enjoyed. If someone like you and your Family, with Brasilian/French Origin, but British residence can enjoy our place that means that all the world can enjoy us. Hope to see you again in the future.

We have just returned from a fantastic European vacation with family friends. Marco and family at Villa San Lucchese were wonderful. We had the best time here with our kids and family friends. The evenings spent on the balcony/terrace with local wines and nibbles were one of the highlights of our holiday. The villa location was wonderful. The breakfast and dinners also the best. thanks to you all for such a great stay. Lisa Murphy &,family. We will definitely be back.
Ps I was the one who left you the crocodile. Lol.

Hey Lisa,
thanks for your comment (and for the crocodile, that I've assigned to someone of your Family). As I told before, we had also a good memories of you and your Family. We'd really like if you can come back again, Northern Territory are very hot in some period of the year to stay there...

Had a fabulous getaway at the Villa San Lucchese. Peaceful, clean, so much history, everyone was so accommodating. Even though I was travelling with my Mom, I certainly would plan a romantic getaway with my husband. Everything was just perfect! Staff was super helpful with directions and getting around the Heart of Chianti Region. Would I go back ~ in a Heartbeat. Certainly a highlight of our 3 week European vacation. ♥
