Located in the heart of Chianti, Villa Lucolena offers an ideal position for visiting the vineyards and hill towns of the Chianti Classico and other parts of Tuscany.  Florence and Siena are at an equal distance from the villa, just 30 km away.  Greve in Chianti is about 15 minutes by car and the small town of  Lucolena is 1 km away. It features an excellent pizzeria that is open in the summer.  Train service to Florence is very easy from Figline Valdarno which is 8 km from the villa.  You can reach the main Florence Santa Maria Novella in approximately 20 minutes.

Villa Lucolena is a traditional country villa, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and Mediterranean forests.   It is just the right place for a relaxing holiday in the quiet of nature.

Totally independent with its own private swimming pool and garden, the villa has been tastefully restored and well furnished, offering an excellent level of comfort.

Villa Lucolena is part of a rural complex which also includes the ruins of a 14th century castle.  The outbuildings have been restored into four guest apartments which have their own garden and swimming pool.  For large groups, renting one or more of these welcoming apartments provides extra space in addition to the main villa.

The Lucolena estate arises from a tiny borough that historically included the ancient 11th century church and adjacent tower, built in the Romanic style, which is now a private home.  The main house and principal part of the Villa dates back to the second half of the 19th century. 

Up on the hilltop, in the deep vegetation of an ancient chestnut grove, it is possible to find the ruins of the ancient Castel d'Azzo, destroyed in the 14th century by fire. The combination of the beautiful setting of the estate, the charm of the Tuscan medieval towns and villages and the friendly family atmosphere will make your stay at Villa Lucolena an unforgettable memory.  Dinners and cooking lessons can be arranged for your pleasure.

The complex is 1 km from Lucolena (where you can find local markets), 8 km from Figline Valdarno (all kinds of shops, tennis and riding school) and Greve in Chianti. From the nearby Figline train station (8 km from Villa Lucolena) you can reach central Florence in just 20 minutes. The guests of the Villa have at their complete disposal a well maintained garden with barbecue and a swimming pool (4m x 8m), open from May 1st to September 30th.  There is WiFi internet in the villa and ample parking on the premises.
