Our Stay at Villa Luciano
We had a true Italian experience at Villa Luciano. Poalo was an excellent host and guided us to the local wineries, as well as making certain that all our needs were met. The day we arrived he notified us of the Summer Solstice celebration, in the town square. It was a unique introduction into Italian Culture; there was food, wine, and entertainment. We stayed the week in the villa, which gives the experience of going back into the glory of the 19th century country-living. We were treated to an opportunity to make authentic Italian ravioli, pasta, and barbeque in the original villa, downstairs kitchen. We felt as though we had been swept back into an earlier time. The entire experience, at the Villa Luciano, was wonderful. I certainly would recommend this villa.
Wonderful time with friends from all over the world
Charming and quaint property in beautiful Tuscany, with character and amenities making our stay beautiful and care-free
Calin and David physicians doctors from Jonesboro in Arkansas USA organised a beautiful friends group reunion at Villa Luciano with guests coming from Vienna and Bucarest, they enjoyed the pease and set of the small authentic typical Tuscany village of Londa discovering the very warm welcome from the local community. We are looking forward for their next year reunion.
Most memorable family vacation
Celebrating my 70th at Villa Luciano with my family was a dream come true. My group of 11 adults and 3 children, ages 3, 6 and 8 had so much fun exploring this beautiful, historical, vast property in the heart of Tuscany region in Italy. Londa town was a five minute walk down the hill, so we were able to do our grocery shopping for our daily breakfast and attended a Sunday mass at the nearby catholic church as well. We stayed at the villa last weekend of September to first week of October. Although it got a little chilly at night, there were plenty of warm, cozy blankets in each bedroom's closet, ready to use, which made us comfortable while we slept. Paolo, the host, was the real charm of all. He chauffeured us to/from all our destinations that made our stay easier and so much more enjoyable. Train ride from Contea - Londa station, five minute drive from the villa was an easy, fast alternative means of transportation.The panoramic views as we drove to the Tuscan countryside vineyards for our wine tasting events were breathtakingly gorgeous, just as exciting as the view from the villa. At the end of our day trips to neighboring towns, we did more fun activities at the villa: making pizza with Paolo, had cooking class with Gabriela who demonstrated to us her old style of cooking delicious authentic Tuscan dishes, and just relaxed, feeling home sweet home. On my actual birthday, the last night of our stay at the villa, my 3 kids collaborated with Paolo, Gabriela and Asis, Paolo's assistant who was graciously helpful and always knew what to do and to my surprise, a nice sit down dinner festively laid out in the formal dining room waiting for us. The whole experience was beyond our expectations and I cannot thank Paolo and his staff enough for making our family vacation the most memorable and most unforgettable one ever.
Dear Tessie I am very flattered and honoured by your beautiful genuine comments about your staying at the Villa. I have very welcomed your amazing family and fully enjoyed your staying at our family’s home. We have done our best to make of our Villa and our location a memorable place for you and your family to remember especially coming from so far away to celebrate your 70th year birthday. I really wish to all of you the best in life and hopefully I will see you again either in Londa or USA. My warmest regards. Paolo
Fabulous property - very helpful owner & manager
We stayed in this property in July/August 2018 as two families both with 3 teenage children. Our first impression was to be completely overwhelmed at the vast size of this house. It is enormous! If you are a group of people do not worry there is enough space both inside the house and the gardens to "lose" yourself.
The pool is lovely, set away from the house and the views are simply superb - a "typical" tucscan view into the valley. The town has a couple of bars and shops for your provisions. Nearby are plenty of restaurants and bigger towns with lovely restaurants and larger supermarkets.
We had Gabrielle make us a Tuscan meal and it was delicious, personally I have four portions of the tiramsu! Its a must for a stay here.
The only note of caution for those who are a bit infirm or with small children is there are a number of staircases to be negotiated.
Altogether though a fabulous place we hope to return to one day.
I am very pleased to have Nicola and her sister Kathryn staying at Villa Luciano with their husbands and beautiful children. They throughly enjoyed every moment from the first day of arrival relaxing inside the Villa and outside in the garden discovering the best restaurants of the area and Londa’s Coffe Bar with live music on Friday and Saturday eveing on the picturesque old square few steps down from the Villa. I really look forward to see them again back sometime in the future with a lot’s of memories left in Londa and at the Villa during this summer Tuscany holiday 2018. Lots of love to them.
Beautiful large villa in quaint Tuscan village
In July 2018 my family and I (14 people in total) had a week long break at Villa Luciano. Positioned on the hillside overlooking Londa village, the views from the villa are simply stunning. The vast gardens provided a picturesque environment for us to relax and unwind. At the top of the gardens there is an excellent swimming pool which everybody loved (especially the children!). The inside of the villa is beautiful and very spacious. Everything we required was provided (including an ice machine!).
It was our host Paulo, however, that made the holiday extra special. He could not have been more informative, helpful and accommodating. He very kindly drove us to a fabulous restaurant on the outskirts of Londa that had been recommended to us. He also provided an extra nights accommodation (free of charge!) for 4 members of our family that had their flights cancelled the night before we were meant to leave. For that I am extremely grateful!
We were hoping for a relaxing holiday surrounded by beautiful Tuscan scenery and this villa exceeded all our expectations. Thank you Paulo! We will return.
The Boyd Family from Scotland
It has been a great honour and pleasure to have this beautiful family coming from Lars in Scotland to choose Villa Luciano as base for their own Tuscany holiday. I remembered how lovely and affectionate were Amanda’s children enjoying very much the pool, the garden and the whole house feeling so at home. Amanda’s family will be always very welcome and I hope to see them again in Londa staying in our house sometime in the future.
Blissfull Week In Villa Luciano, Londa
Kim and I just wanted to restate how much we enjoyed our stay at the fantastic Villa Luciano in Londa. Our party of 14 had an amazing time at the Villa and also the surrounding Tuscan area. The Villa is genuine and rustic, but beautifully laid out with all the amenities required for a large group to have a fantastic time celebrating multiple 50th and 25th birthdays. The pool area became a special area for our daily gatherings and certainly cooling in the heat of this particular summer. We also enjoyed our group dining at both breakfast and dinner on the raised area nearer the Villa. Having fresh growing Rosemary and Lemons to hand during BBQ evenings was wonderful. The local shops were very welcoming and stocked sufficient items to keep us all well fed and 'watered', we have a lot of Chianti converts now.
I would recommend Villa Luciano for any group looking for a friendly, accommodating and authentic place to stay in or around Tuscany and within easy vehicle reach of the centers of Florence, Pisa & Sienna.
Paulo along with support from Azizz made our stay memorable with great support, care and information.
We along with the whole group would like to thank you for turning a very special event into an amazing 7 days in Tuscany.
Thank you again.
Robert booked the Villa one year and half in advance coming along with British and US American fellow mates to celebrate friendships and 50 years birthday under the Tuscan sun....this year plenty! Also a British sailor like me so eventually next time from the Tuscany countryside we will move to Tuscany sea. A great group of people and great guys very lucky to have them choosing our Villa Luciano and staying over to enrich our Villa unique guests' book with their beautiful sincere comments about us....we love ❤️ you and hopefully see you again
