About PICCOLO BORGO GAGNONI
We live in Belgium with our 3 children. We try to be in Tuscany as much as we can but we still have a demanding job in Belgium. Tuscany is for us Paradise on earth with its unique landscapes, beautiful architecture and art everywhere. It is another way of living, away from the stress, enjoying the good life (especially the simple but exquisite food)!
PICCOLO BORGO GAGNONI purchased this Villa in 2002
Why PICCOLO BORGO GAGNONI chose Sinalunga
Villa Gagnoni is situated in the south of Tuscany (nearby the cities of Siena and Arezzo). It is close to the most beautiful landscapes of Tuscany such as the Crete Senesi, the Chianti area, Val d'Orcia etc...The town of Montepulciano and Montalcino, home of the VINO NOBILE wine and the famous Brunello wine are close by. So is Pienza, the pittoresk village of the Pecorino Cheese .. There is so much going on in every season : wine and food tasting, music festivals, etc...You never get bored in Tuscany!
What makes this Villa unique
We bought Villa Gagnoni because of its unique architecture and its beautiful location on a hill side in a protected nature reserve. We loved the authenticity of the building and its surroundings. Here we can enjoy the beauty of nature and just relax. On the other hand Villa Gagnoni is very well located to visit a lot of interesting cities within a 1 hour drive. Recently we renovated the property to high quality standards. The guests of Villa Gagnoni enjoy also the services offered by Piccolo Borgo Gagnoni. You can order bread and croissants for the next morning or enjoy the breakfast buffet, you can take part in the pizza evening and wine tasting organised in the borgo.

Luxury in Tuscany
From the moment of booking we had excellent personal attention and immediate response to enquiries. Nothing was too much trouble for Cristina, which was very much appreciated
The facilities were excellent and well maintained.
Don't fail to go to the Pizza night which was good fun and allowed us to meet other residents.
In all a wonderful holiday in a beautiful setting - close to many amazing hill top towns!
Wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa
Our very pleasing first impressions of Villa Gagnoni were more than matched throughout our holiday by its location and facilities. It was clearly a well maintained property, with a pool and grounds in a superb condition. All staff of site were welcoming, efficient and keen to please - particularly Cristina, the on-site manager.
Being out in the countryside the location offered peace and tranquility, yet it was just a short distance from Lucignano, the nearest town, and there were opportunities for walking and cycling in the local area. Further afield, we went to Siena, Montepulciano and Lago Trasimeno, all well worth a visit.
The villa was ideal for our large family get-together (6 adults/4 children), having 5 spacious bedrooms each with their own bathroom. We spent our breakfast times outside on the covered patio where Cristina brought our order for bread and croissants with a big smile each morning - the daily orders from a local bakery are a must!
In the evenings we used the well-provided kitchen facilities or BBQ and occasionally ate at local restaurants (recommendations: Lucignano - Ristaurante La Tavernetta and Il Goccino; Rigomagno - Scroccazucche).
We took advantage of the Wine Tasting evening, which was arranged through Cristina - an excellent, fun-filled and very informative time sampling some of the high quality Tuscan wines along with cheese and salami.
Our stay at Villa Gagnoni certainly exceeded our expectations and we can fully recommend it for a wonderful holiday.
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic and lovely comments!
It really makes us happy to be able to give our clients unforgettable memories of their stay with us in Tuscany!
Amazing villa within pure nature
We spent amazing 2 weeks in this fantastic villa. It was the perfect vacation and it will be hard to find anything better.
The villa is just beautiful - a very traditional building with brand new bathrooms, an amazing dining hall and living room. Just amazing. The best part however is the location. Slightly on a hill in the middle of pure nature we had total tranquillity. The villa is surrounded by olive trees, a small soccer field for the kids and the awesome pool, which got daily maintenance.
Cristina, who is taking care of the property and who is onsite every day in the morning was super nice and helped us with anything we needed.
The next groceries stores are around 20mins away in Lucignano or Sinalunga. Restaurants are around but we did not want to leave this amazing place where we had dinner during sunset each day.
Mountain biking in the area was also great. There are great single trails around lago di Calzione and the military facilities next to it.
We will come back, it was just phenomenal.
Tranquil retreat away from it all!
Everything met our expectations and beyond. The descriptions are accurate and this is truly a beautiful place to spend time in Tuscany. The location is remote, approx 15 mins from the closest town (Lucignano), which is great for evenings out and about 20 mins from the supermarket. Both are driving times. The upkeep of the villa is immaculate and was restored with care, attention and in a high quality fashion. The location and pool is completely private, away from everything. The support we had from Christina, was great - she made sure we had everything we needed and was also close by. There were only 4 of us, so we had tons of space, but the villa can easily accommodate many more people comfortably. We wish the kitchen had had more basics left in the cupboards (eg. herbs, spices, oil, coffee), which seems common in the US, but not sure if this is because the place was new - anyway we left everything non-perishable that we purchased for others! An amazing location, and place to enjoy the tranquil countryside in Italy. Well worth the cost and we would definitely come back.
A Family Rendezvous!!
Incredible is the word I would use to describe the location, the grounds, the villa, the atmosphere. We had the perfect family rendezvous, coming from opposite sides of the world and meeting in this serenity was exactly what we were looking for! The Villa has a private pool which was perfect for the lazy mornings and early afternoons. It is located 30 min from beautiful Siena and only an hour fro Florence so we were able to take day trips to these beautiful cities. Montepolciano and Chianti regions and their amazing wineries are only 15-20 min away. We had several days/nights that we stayed local and bought amazing produce and just cooked in the well equipped and grand kitchen. We would play cards upstairs in the living area with the cool air blowing in from the plethora of windows. It was simply perfect! and Joost and Anne were so hospitable! I would go back in a heart beat and plans are already in the works :).
Fantastic Villa in amazing location
There were nine of us staying covering 3 generations of the family and everyone from the young to the old had an amazing holiday. The villa is very well maintained with all the mod cons you would expect for a property like this. The bedrooms and en-suites were all spacious and very comfortable. The outside was well looked after and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool.
We had some fantastic meals that we cooked in the well provisioned kitchen and enjoyed eating on the veranda watching the stars come out. As there was hardly any light pollution, the stars were quite amazing to people from the outskirts of London!!
The location is superb, so quite and with amazing Tuscan views, but still not too far away from Lucignano with it's restaurants and Sinalunga for the supermarkets. We also did a number of days out, and again these were relatively easy due to the location of the villa.
All I can say about Villa Gagnoni is go and experience it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
