About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Lucignano, one of the most outstanding examples of a fortified Tuscan mediaeval village. Appartamento Giardino, a fully self-contained apartment located in a mediaeval building opening onto its own garden, right in the centre of the charming central Tuscan town of Lucignano.

The Space
Appartamento Giardino is located in a a converted frantoio, olive oil mill in the centre of the mediaeval town of Lucignano. There is a spacious living room with large open fire, kitchen and dining area, and an adjacent sleeping area for two. On this level is also a bathroom featuring a traditional rolled-top bath and separate shower. There is also a laundry with a front-loading washing machine. A staircase leads off this level to the garden and rear entry. The lower level features a large bedroom and also separate access to the garden. The garden is furnished with outdoor table, chairs and umbrella for the exclusive use of the apartment - an ideal place to relax.

Bed Configuration:
The apartment is set over two levels, the lower level contains the main bedroom with a king-sized bed (letto matrimoniale), this bedroom also has direct access to Appartamento Giardino's private garden.
On the main living level is another sleeping area containing a double bed.
In addition, all bedrooms have ceiling fans.
There is total sleeping accommodation for 4 people.

Interaction with Guests
Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a local from Lucignano who speaks both Italian and English. She will provide information about the attractions of the town and of the surrounding area.

The Neighbourhood
Apartamento Giardino is located in the outer ring of the town in via Roma. Everything is in walking (just metres away from the front door!) distance, whether you want to get a morning caffe and cornetti, or have a meal in its many restaurants, or get supplies from the supermercato.

Getting around
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. Apartamento Giardino is located in the heart of centro storico, the historic centre! Lucignano is incredibly well located in central Tuscany, exploring all the major historic centres is very straightforward. Florence and Siena are less than an hour away by road, and Cortona and Arezzo are less than 1/2 and hour away. 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. If you have a car, parking is easily accessible from Apartamento Giardino

Central Heating:

Appartamento Giardino has central heating throughout. If you wish to use the central heating system, let the house manager know at check-in and she can read the gas meter in your presence. At the end of your stay, she will check the meter/s again and work out the usage charge. The rate is € 1/mc. Which works out, for the middle of winter (for example), would cost about €40-€90 or so for a week. Appartamento Giardino 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.
