I almost don't want to write this review because it will attract more people to this wonderful B&B and I want to keep it all to myself. However, Casa Pei truly deserves recognition. Everything written about it is true. The place is great - spotless, quiet, delicious breakfast, wonderful owners, lovingly remodeled and located in the old town. Dino and Silvana want you to have a wonderful experience in Italy. They provide helpful travel maps & tips, including where to park when visiting certain towns and even a hidden gem of a monastery. I found their advice to be better than the guidebooks. Dino is rightly proud of the beautiful house where he grew up and his father lived for 96 years! The rooms were well-appointed and there were places to sit and soak in the atmosphere of the house and town.
You can't go wrong with Casa Pei. Lucignano feels exactly what you thought a stay in Tuscany should be like - quiet, beautiful and with great food. In fact, I couldn't even find a tourist shop there to buy a t-shirt as a souvenir-that is the definition of travel perfection. If you are in Tuscany, stop here and stay for at least 3 nights. The other tourist towns are an easy drive (Siena, Cortona, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Pienza etc). After you see the sights and buy your t-shirts from there, come back to the quiet town for a great dinner and a perfect Tuscan setting. Enjoy!
