We are a family based in North Oxford, England with our 5 boys. The oldest three are now at University but the other two are at school nearby. We love to travel, but enjoy our house in Italy as much as we can.
Louise purchased this House in 2001
Why Louise chose Lucignano
We had been looking for a property to buy in France for years but could never decide whereabouts. By chance we went on holiday to Tuscany with friends in 2000 and fell head over heels with the area. We met a wonderful estate agent (who is now a firm family friend) and bought Casa Luisa one year later. We renovated, lanscaped and put in the swimming pool the following year and have loved every inch of the place ever since then! The beauty of Tuscany and its people speak for itself but Casa Luisa is so easy to access (10 mins from main A1 motorway) and so central for Siena, Florence, Pisa and Rome that there is never a shortage of things to do and places to visit. In fact we go 3 or 4 times a year and are still discovering new finds.
What makes this House unique
Casa Luisa is a spacious, comfortable home with great facilites and wonderful views. The pool is large with an elevated terrace to read or sunbathe without fear of being splashed. The gardens are perfect for finding a quiet area to read or relax. Our favourite walnut tree providing shade for eating al-fresco. Casa Luisa is located between two towns, Lucignano (a pretty medieval hilltop town) and Sinalunga (a bustling market town), both providing an insight into the 'real' Tuscany. Casa Luisa offers privacy and seclusion whilst not being isolated. The local houses are working landowners and are often busy in the fields tending their vines or sheep.

Lovely villa and great location
This villa was perfectly located for us as it was an easy drive to do day trips to the Tuscan towns we were keen to visit (Siena, Cortona and Montepulciano). Lucignano was also delightful with some lovely restaurants. And we loved the markets in the local village of Sinalunga. The villa was charming and the pool was the perfect place to enjoy the Tuscan sunsets. The living area was comfortable and while it was a little dark it was also a cool refuge. The beds were probably the biggest downer as they were spring mattresses from a bygone era.
The nearest beach is at Grosetto or Castiglione del la Pescaia. About 1.5 hours away. It is wonderful for a day trip.
Nearest airport is Perugia (Ryanair only) - 25 mins but flights are infrequent (twice a week). Also Florence is only 45 mins away but again flights are infrequent.
Florence - 45 mins.
Pisa is 1.15 hrs (many flights daily)
Rome, Bologna 1.5 hrs approx.
Travel from Oxford is approx 16 hrs door to door.
2km to both Lucignano and Sinalunga where there are bars, restaurants, weekly markets, shops, museums, churches
25 mins to Siena.
40 mins Florence.
2km to large supermarket, local market (Tues only), lots of restaurants, shops, banks etc. Large water park is 20 mins away and open air communal pool and tennis courts are in Sinalunga. The Roman hot spa thermal pools are at Rapolano (15 mins) and are suitable for year round use and children are welcome. An amazing experience for all.
