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 villa is decorated in true Tuscan style and is immensely clean. Lorenzo and Marie are fantastic hosts and nothing was too much for them. Their local knowledge will ensure that you have a problem free holiday. Five stars all the way.

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!
