About Luca

Here we are, Lido and Luca,

We have given a lot of thought about what we would do in the homes we inherited from our great-grandparents - old Tuscan farmers bound to this land. We had initially planned to sell them but then we realized we would regret this decision terribly. Renovation on the houses was done and we thought it would be nice to share all of this with our guests: the lush countryside surrounding the house and some good wine thus reflecting the simplicity of our lifestyle.

So we worked patiently to make Villa Padronale into what you see today. We are happy to offer you a place with bright sunlit rooms, large gardens, swimming pool plus numerous sport activities or simply organize your holidays, anniversaries and weddings.

Above all we wish you a warm welcome!

For savvy travelers wishing to experience local life off the beaten track, the Valtiberina & Anghiari is top choice.

It's here that you'll find fewer tourists, charming hill towns such as Arezo and Cortona, beautiful Sansepolcro, and a trove of undiscovered gems. The breathtaking countryside—known for its lush, green rolling hills, will take your breath away.

Luca purchased this farmhouse in 1932

Why Luca chose Anghiari

SPECIAL OFFER 20% OF on all remaining weeks June

Discount on booking with reduced price on confirmation

Freedom, fruit, Italian wines, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody ,these are good reasons.

You can live in a Country house which is part of the old world, with stunning views from the windows. The museums & picture galleries in Florence, Siena, Perugia, Arezzo and Sansepolcro are in easy driving distance; the Anghiari music festival in July is just one of many great classical and jazz events. The vineyards are outstanding, and all the local Italians love Americans who liberated them. THE POOL is a very Olympian 16m x 8m and is 1.5-1,90 m in depth and has roman steps that are perfect for relaxing on and taking in the views

There is a shaded paddling pool with toys for small children and babies.


The Fiume Tevere (Tiber river) starts here, in the Tiber valley, locally known as VALTIBERINO”, a

place full of memories of battles and meetings of Saints and Heroes.

The valley is dominated by the mountain of “La Verna”, the sacred ground of San Francesco

who stopped to pray there to feel closer to God. This mountain was so important to Michelangelo

Buonarroti that he posed on the background of the painting “Tondo Doni“ so as to remind

people that he was born there. Tondo Doni is a very special painting: it is the only painting on

panel by Michelangelo Buonarroti. It is round, hence its name "Tondo". It was a private commission for the rich Florentine banker Agnolo Doni. Michelangelo (born 6 March 1475) was a famous sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his fellow Italian “Leonardo

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were 14 friendley with children on a one week holiday and it was amazing.. Really lucky with the weather too, kids really enjoyed the pool and the house has plenty of space even for the 14 people. We felt welcome from the start, Lido & Luca welcomed us with cold drinks Sightseeing was easy too,the Valtiberina Valley is really beautiful and the owner provided us with lots of material about places to see, there a recommanded a good restaurants. Half hour driving to Arezzo, Cortona, Assisi also close by. We still talk about our vacation and strongly consider to go back next year beacause a week in the parth of Tuscany is definetely not enough

Excellent villa for families

  • 5 of 5

The spacious and beautiful Ferraguzzo villa with very big garden and swimmingpool was ideal for families with children at different ages. There are great areas to play together and to be alone in peace if needed. The villa exceeded all our expectations.

The service was friendly and sincere. We had a spectacular toscanian dinner prepared by Luca and two chefs. The food was excellent and the dining room was beautiful.

You really need a car to get there and around. And when you get there you are in paradise!

Many thanks for Luca and the staff for an excellent holiday!

Wat een schitterende plek! Paradijs! / What a beautiful place! Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Heerlijk huis voor een familie met kinderen en jonge kleinkinderen. Prima huis met kamers en badkamers, maar vooral: wat een tuin met zwembad! Lekker omheind dus alleen opletten dat ze het water niet inkukelen. Verder ruimte, rust, mooie plekjes rond het huis en een prachtige regio met stadjes, natuur, etc.

Zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Altijd beschikbaar wanneer nodig. Probeer ook vooral de eigen honing!!

Wonderfull house for a family with children en little grandchildren. Fine house with bedrooms and bathrooms, but mainly: what a garden with swimmingpool!! The garden is completely fenced, you just have to prevent the children from falling into the pool.

A lotnof space, calm and nice spots around the house.

The region is beautiful with towns, nature, etc.

Very friendly and cooperative staff, always available when needed.

You must try their own honey!!
