Make a holiday rental home or villa in Santa Luce, Italy your home away from home

Beautifully preserved medieval buildings, panoramic views of unspoilt countryside, traditional food and local wines. If these are some of the attractions you are seeking in your Tuscan holiday rental destination, you can do far worse than looking at Santa Luce. The commune of Santa Luce has all of these and is situated just 27km south-west of Pisa, meaning it can also be used as a peaceful base for visiting the famous Italian city.

Things to do in Santa Luce, Italy

With its picturesque setting on the edge of a protected lake, Santa Luce has to be one of the most peaceful and relaxing destinations in Tuscany. You will not find throngs of tourists, busy bars or heaving nightclubs here, but if you are looking to ‘get away from it all’ you have chosen the right destination.

Enjoying the local food and drink is usually a huge part of anyone’s holiday, and a holiday in Santa Luce provides you with the ideal opportunity to sample the many delights of Tuscan cuisine. Olive oils, marmalades, wines, citrus fruits, honeys and pastas are just some examples of the items that can be purchased from local shops or farmers and used in recipes when you return to your holiday villa. If you would rather have someone else do the cooking, you will find several high-quality restaurants around Santa Luce.

A great way of getting around Santa Luce, Tuscany is by bicycle. This environmentally-friendly method of transport can be hired from within the village, and will allow you to discover far more of this beautiful region than you would be able to do on foot. If you are planning longer journeys, however, the use of a car is a necessity in this rural part of Italy.

The local region is famous for its thermal baths and spas, and an excellent example of these can be enjoyed at nearby Casciana Terme. Santa Luce is also a great destination for a golfing break.

Places to visit on holiday in Santa Luce, Italy

The area around Pisa is chock-full of interesting places to visit during your stay in Santa Luce. Just one suggestion is the village of Chianni, which is 22km around the lake and a great choice for a relaxing day trip thanks to an array of excellent restaurants, traditional businesses and unspoilt scenery. Pisa itself, famous for its awe-inspiring leaning tower, can be reached by car in less than 45 minutes.

Weather in Santa Luce, Italy

The most popular months for a visit in Santa Luce are June, July and August. The average temperature for these months is 27C, and over 30C is not uncommon. From September onwards rainfall starts to increase but temperatures remain warm, with October and November generally the wettest months of the year.

The farmhouse is as beautiful as the pictures show. It is roomy, comfortable and individually decorated. Chianni is a super village with 3 really good restaurants within walking distance. There are also a couple of bars, ATMs and mini markets. The Saturday market offers an excellent choice of fruit and vegetables. The farmhouse is a great base to tour Tuscany. We visited Volterra, Lajtico, San Giminjano, Florence, Lucca, Livorno and Pisa. Miria and Adriano gave us a very warm welcome, were accommodating in topping up the wifi and took great care to ensure we made the most of our visit. It farmhouse is at the bottom of a very steep stones path which is pitch dark in the evening so flat shoes and a torch are required! We would have no hesitation in recommending the farmhouse and Chianni in general. Grazie tanto, speriamo di essere di nuovo. Judith, Alan and Jamie
