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.

It is sparkling with light, comfortable beds and bedding, beautifully decorated, includes every necessity, and it's super clean! The location is excellent for adventuring in Tuscany, and it is situated in a quaint rustic village. Roberta, the property manager went above and beyond to meet our needs, she is a gem! She thoughtfully prepared a space for our grandbaby ahead of time, we felt so welcomed and cared for, we were greeted with wine and the makings of a pasta dinner and fresh fruit for breakfast. She was so helpful at each point of contact and and provided us with many useful tips for enjoying our stay. The kitchen has a huge table for family dinners and relaxation together. A wonderful experience, this property is highly recommended.

The property itself, The Hammock was exactly the standard as show in the photos so were not disappointed. The view and the pool exceeded our expectations and ticked all members of families boxes including the teenagers. We mixed the days with relaxing by the pool and visiting the local hill top towns all which had their own character. I would definitely consider returning and would highly recommend the property. Claudia, the owner and Fabio were very attentive throughout the booking and greeting process. Thank you for letting us share in your wee piece of paradise.
