About Anna and Francesca Gigli
My name is Francesca Gigli, I am 42 years old and I manage the Santa Lucia farmhouse together with my sister Anna. I love my city and I have the privilege of daily living the beauty that the Tuscan nature offers to the eye and there is nothing more beautiful than sharing this with the guests of our farmhouse.
Anna and Francesca Gigli purchased this Farmhouse in 1957
Why Anna and Francesca Gigli chose Asciano
When my grandfather arrived from Sardinia in Tuscany, he fell in love with this paradise and decided to buy it. My mother, my aunt and my uncle have then restructured the farm to create a place where the tourist could live in contact with the beauty of the Tuscan nature ... and so was born the farmhouse Santa Lucia that my sister Anna and I manage with the love that such a place deserves.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
I think it is impossible not to fall in love with the nature surrounding the farmhouse and not be subjugated by the courtyard of the house, its beautiful arches and the suggestive location of the farm. And then plunging into the pool giving a glimpse of Siena and the Crete Senesi is a privilege for few people.

Perfect location and wonderful countryside
The drive up from d Arbia was beautiful and Anna and Francesca made us very welcome. It is a stunning location from which to explore some of Tuscany and after a day's sightseeing, it was lovely to return to with it's peace and tranquility.
Clean and well maintained and very secure, comfortable beds and plenty of hanging space for clothes. Would recommend to friends and family.
Charming villa in beautiful countryside
We could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend 5 nights in beautiful Tuscany. Farm Saint Lucia is impeccably maintained, and Belvedere apartment was every bit as charming as I had hoped for. The property is on the top of a small hill, with gorgeous views of Sienna and the Crete Senesi area (those classic Tuscan landscapes!). The sunsets were dramatic and seemed to get more stunning each night we were there. We awoke to a beautiful symphony of bird songs and I usually took my coffee out into the garden or by the pool and basked in the beauty of Tuscany. The weather was unseasonably cool (which Francesca kept apologizing for!) but we enjoyed our evenings around the big fireplace.
Our group included myself, my husband, 20 yr-old daughter, and my brother. The 3 bedrooms and 2 baths fit our needs perfectly. There is a TV (we never used it) and WiFi. The kitchen is well equipped with cooking utensils and dishes. We had not planned on cooking dinners, but found that we did not want to leave Farm Saint Lucia and miss the sunset. One trip to the Coop in Arbia gave us everything we needed. (We were the first to stay at Belvedere this season and can't say if things accumulate as guests come and go, so plan on buying your own bath soap, paper towels, etc.) The furniture is comfortable and the linens are luxurious. I loved the antique furniture and simple classic Tuscan design throughout the villa. I especially appreciated the screens on the windows. Years ago we stayed at a villa that did not have screens and had to keep the windows closed to keep the bats out. With screens we were able to let the morning and evening light flood in without concern.
The location is easy to get to by car on roads that are well maintained and well marked. When booking Belvedere I could never have imagined how treacherous some of the roads in this area are, so we really appreciated the ease of its location.
Anna and Francesca were a pleasure to deal with, accommodating our late arrival and very early departure with a relaxed attitude. I would highly recommend this property, and hope to stay here again - only this time it will be longer!
It was a pleasure to read your positive review, and it was a joy having you as our guests. We look forward to welcoming you again at Santa Lucia.

Fantastic villa near Sienna
I'm usually pretty skeptical about VRBO ads featuring beautiful views and photoshopped pics of the property. This was our first agriturismo rental in Europe and I was a bit cautious about payment and rental agreements that seemed to be less structured than in the US. However... we were simply blown away by the villa. So much that I decided to leave a review in appreciation of Anna's and Francesca's hospitality... and to keep it organized:
1. Location was fantastic. It was pretty easy to find following Anna's directions (in English). About 20-25 mins from Sienna by car, 1 last mile is a well maintained gravel road. Do not count on public transport/taxi/bike - got to have a car. The villa is up on a hill, overlooking vast open spaces (those Tuscan rolling hills). It is fairly secluded, there's another (non-rental) villa on a nearby hill, but absolutely no traffic, no noise. There were two or three other families renting smaller sections of the same villa, but we've seen them but twice during our 5 days there - no interference whatsoever.
2. Property itself: the villa is a large, well-maintained house divided into 5 units. We (five people) have rented the largest, Belvedere, on the upper floor. Has 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (small showers, but otherwise OK), kitchen, fridge, fireplace, large dining table. The views from all windows are fantastic in all directions and although we liked the photos on VRBO, they don't do justice to the actual views. Swimming pool was a nice extra that we got to use one day. that same day we took advantage of the bikes (good condition) in the shed and rode down the gravel road for ~5 miles: no cars, 5 other villas along the way, sheep herds, but mostly beautiful Tuscan hills and absolute serenity. Back in the villa, there are several places to have a meal outside, the courtyard is very cozy. Again, the views from around the house surrounded by cypresses and olive trees are breathtaking.
3. Food. The nearest foodstore is in Arbia (15mins by car). Enough to stock up on local cheese, sausage and wine.
4. Payments/ agreements: We got pricing by email, everything from daily rates to cleaning fee checked out. We paid deposit by credit card and got an email confirmation immediately. Receipt was given upon checkout on paper. Overall, no hidden fees, no "gotchas".
5. Staff: Anna and Francesca were very friendly and patient before and during our stay. They answered all phone calls and promptly responded to emails.
Wunderbare Zeit in der Crete
Idealer Ausgangspunkt für Tripps im Herzen der Toskana, Blick auf den Monte Amiata und das Herz der Crete Senesi, toller Pool 14 x 7 m, sehr gut ausgestattete Wohnungen, servicefreundliche Vermieter!
Wir freuen uns, dass Udo und Ulm haben sich sehr gut in unserem Hause durchgeführt, und dass sie leicht besuchen ein großes Gebiet in der Toskana.
The Santa Lucia farmhouse is nestled in the Crete Senesi just 10 km from Siena.
We are at the gates of the Crete Senesi of Asciano, a territory of rare beauty and still partly untouched, where the gentle hills are outlined by rows of cypress trees, small spots that sink on natural ponds frequented by roe deer and pheasants. In every season nature offers enchanting colors: from the bright and soft green of the green wheat of late spring, to the intense yellow of Van Gogh in the hot and dry summer, to the pastel colors of the autumn sunsets at sunset behind the Tower del Mangia in Siena and the pink and violet nuances of the light mists of the winter morning. Millions of postcards to paint and photograph.
From our farmhouse trekking routes to the Transitory Site, artistic installation by J. P. Philippe. A place where the summer solstice takes on a symbolic aspect that is particularly intense and meaningful for man and the meaning of life.
The "white roads" that see us protagonists with L'Eroica of a world-class cycling re-enactment, can be freely traveled by our cyclotourist guests and compete with the path that passes through here and winds through our magnificent province.
The location of the farm is ideal for either a relaxing holiday by the pool immersed in the quiet of nature, and for those who want to visit the many places of historical and cultural interest within easy reach in a short time.
In addition to its proximity to cities such as Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Pienza and Montalcino the farmhouse is just 15 minutes and half an hour from the Baths of Rapolano Valdichiana dall'outlet.
For those interested in sports just 5 km there is the handling of Mociano that the go-kart.
