Casa Terrazza is located in Lucignano, one of the most outstanding examples of a fortified Tuscan mediaeval village. Casa Terrazza, is just a few steps away from restaurants and cafes..

We travelled with two other couples to the Tuscany region for a four night stay in Casa Terrazza in the quaint village of Lucignano. The home is actually better than the on line pictures. We were all impressed with the decor, layout, quality of the furniture, appliances and most of all the terrace overlooking Tuscany. The location of Lucignano was...

Lucignano is an unspoiled town in Tuscany, we found it to be very friendly with lots of restaurants and easy access to Siena, San Gimignano. Pirienza, Cortona and many other towns nearby. Casa Terrazza was very comfortable and great for our situation. Unfortunately we had a very, very hot week, so needed to use the airconditioner which is quite expensive...

Airconditioning and Central Heating:
Casa Terrazza is fully airconditioned and has central heating throughout. Due to high energy costs in Italy, it is not typical to have airconditioning integrated throughout a house, particularly an ancient one like Casa Terrazza. If you wish to use the central heating or airconditioning system, let the house manager know at check-in and she can read the gas and/or electricity meter in your presence. At the end of your stay, she will check the meter/s again and work out the usage charge. The gas rate is € 1/mc. (The electricity rate (only charged if you need to use the a/c) is € 0.90/kwh) Which works out, for the middle of winter (for example), would cost about €50-€70 or so for a week. Casa Terrazza also has a beautiful traditional open fire (great for roasting chestnuts!) and firewood can be provided as well for a small additional charge based on usage.

About the neighborhood
Lucignano, known as the "Pearl of the Val di Chiana" (Valley of Chiana) retains its complete mediaeval town plan. Viewed from the air, Lucignano is perfectly oval in shape. Casa Terrazza is located in the heart of centro storico, the historic centre! Whilst Lucignano is a very beautiful town, it is not overrun with tourists and for those who wish to try out their Italian language skills, you will find the locals patient and friendly.<BR><BR>Casa Terrazza is located in the outer ring in the town in via Roma. Everything is in walking distance (just metres away from the front door!), whether you want to get morning caffe and cornetti, or have a meal in its many restuarants, or get supplies from the supermercato.<BR>
Car not needed
How to get there
I find driving the best way to get to Lucignano. The road access to Lucignano is excellent whether arriving form south (Rome) or north, Florence or Pisa on the Autostrada A1<BR><BR>You can also take a fast train to Florence or Arezzo and get one of the frequent bus services to Lucignano.
