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.

Pisa itself, famous for its awe-inspiring leaning tower, can be reached by car in less than 45 minutes.

Ideally we wanted somewhere peaceful but reasonably close to a town or village and centrally placed to get out and about, we weren't disappointed. The house is no more than 1 mile from the beautiful town of Volterra, historic streets lined with lovely shops, bars and restaurants, we had to tear ourselves away to explore the region! The owner was very easy to deal with when booking the house and provided detailed information not just about the house, but the local area as well. Upon arrival, late at night, we were delighted with the welcome hamper that had been left to greet us, with some delicious local goodies it made a very nice start to our break.The view from the veranda that greeted us the next morning was incredible - and we spent one entire day just sat out admiring it - with some local produce to keep us sustained! The house was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed, of particular use was the wifi, which, despite the owners warning, was very reliable in terms of connection for the entire week. Very comfy beds with plenty of storage space and a lovely garden to roam around, the house is accurately described, with a perfectly acceptable kitchen should you decide to self-cater.We travelled to San Gimignano (twice) and would recommend the ice cream from the shop in the square with 'world’s best ice cream' on their sign - we wouldn't disagree! Also the view from the point on right hand side of the main street - spectacular. We drove to Poggibonsi and caught the train to Florence - 7 euros each - free parking by the station and an hour on the train with return trains every hour - perfectly simple.An hour’s drive in the other direction is Sienna via Monteriggioni - well worth a visit and have a lunch at the restaurant half way down the main street on the right - not cheap but worth every penny. We also went for a drive west from Volterra to Bolgheri via Montecatini - the only problem being we had to stop every few miles to take photographs of the view! Our final trip was up to Viareggio north of Pisa, a beautiful walk on the beach, even in October - and some very high class shopping on the front, we called in at the leaning tower of Pisa on the way back home - amazing. All in all a busy but very interesting week. I would certainly recommend that you stay here, the only thing we didn't try was the well proportioned swimming pool - well it was the last week in October!

The design & layout of the property is such a great use of the space, the villa was really well equipped, the bed is very comfortable & all linen etc is as anyone would need & the spec of the property is very high. The view from the terrace is actually better than photos can show. The little hamlet in which it stands has been beautifully restored to be an excellent isolated place but near other properties. The pool was great - especially as there were not many properties occupied when we were there, in September - and Roberto, who welcomed us on arrival & checked on us occasionally through the week, was most helpful & charming. As throughout the whole booking & staying process, was Colm, the owner - even though he was actually in Dublin. It is a perfect base for what is perfect Tuscan scenery & tourist spots within an hour or so- but we enjoyed the walking too. We found the Via Francigena, which we had no idea of until we arrived. What a lovely stretch it is there between Gambassi Terme & San Gimignano. A perfect week. Many thanks. Phil

Our first impressions were WOW, and the family proceeded to show us around and explain the workings of the property. After they left, we were treated to a Tuscan thunder storm which made the experience even more special! We found the property very functional, there were 4 of us in the party and there was plenty of space to give each couple a sense of privacy, and breakfasting on the terrace each morning (thankfully the weather did improve after that first day!) was a lovely start to the day. We also found the location to be ideal for travelling into Pisa and Florence, we drove to Pisa (about 45 mins) and took the train from Cascina (about a 20 minute drive) into Florence as we thought parking would be difficult there. The train service was very efficient and around 6 euros each way for the 1 hr journey, a recommended stress-free way to see the city. We'd also highly recommend the town of Lucca (around 35 mins), and Volterra (around 1 hr) to add to your itinerary. The local village of Buti was just ok, fine for getting essentials like bread and milk, but quite limited for eating out. We did however find a little gem of a restaurant called Il Maggi, just off the main square in Buti, reasonably priced and the food was stunning. We'd also recommend one just a 10 minute drive towards Bientini, called La Valetta, a superb family-style restaurant with sensational pizza. All in all we had a fabulous stay and we would highly recommend the villa for anyone seeking peace, quiet and tranquility during their holiday.
