Featuring a charming private garden, perfect for the afternoon aperitivo, this spacious apartment is fully self-contained. Incorporating antique Tuscan pieces, yet including all the things one wants to be modern, this comfortable apartment provides the perfect location from which to explore the best of Tuscany. The Space Being located right in the centre of the centro storico, the historic centre of town, everything is within walking distance, (just metres away from the front door!), whether you want to get your morning caffe and cornetti at the local bar, have a meal in one of the many pizzerias or trattorias, or simply get supplies from one of the many gourmet food shops. The apartment is part of the Casa Terrazza building, a beautifully restored 900 year old terra tetto (an independent town house), which was fully rebuilt in the past 5 years and has been recently redecorated with a unique blend of Tuscan antiques and modern finishes. Bed Configuration With direct access from Via Roma and from the private garden, the apartment features a spacious and comfortable living room which opens directly onto this area. This is an ideal place for alfresco dining with its outdoor setting for 6 persons shaded by a large sun umbrella. The upper level features a spacious living room, fireplace, open-plan fully equipped kitchen, dining area, adjacent sleeping area and modern bathroom which contains a roll-top bath and separate shower. Your own separate laundry with front loading machine is located on this level. The second bedroom on the upper level is a studio room and is partitioned off from the main living area by a cleverly designed curtain system. A large double bedroom is located on the lower level which opens directly onto the garden. In addition, all bedrooms have ceiling fans. One feature of Appartamento Giardino, which is not typical with many properties in Lucignano, is that you can access the apartment from the rear just off the town’s circular road via your own private gate to the free parking. Guest interaction All guests will be met by a Lucignese local bilingual speaker (English and Italian). Apart from providing you with information about Lucignano and the surrounding attractions, she will also be you point of contact during your stay should any issues arise. Please note: Unless otherwise agreed to, the minimum period of stay is 4 days. The Neighbourhood Lucignano, known as the 'Pearl of the Val di Chiana' (valley of Chiana) retains its complete medieval town plan, as a historic walled hilltop town. Whilst Lucignano is important historically, it is not overrun with tourists and for those who wish to try out their Italian language skills, you will find the locals patient and friendly. Lucignano is very proud of their Orange Flag Award from the Italian Touring Club, for 'the promotion of cultural heritage, environmental protection, culture, hospitality, access to and availability of resources, the quality of accommodation, catering and local products”. As a visitor to Lucignano, you will find it perfectly located as an introduction to Italy’s famed ‘dolce vita’. There’s an overabundance of things to do and see, because this part of Tuscany has been value-adding since Etruscan times. Renaissance paintings and Gothic Cathedrals, spectacular walks and cycling, sensational slow food, hills laden with vines and ancient olive groves. Sienna, Montepulciano, Cortona, Pienza, Florence, Assisi, or Arezzo are a short drive away. After a day of climbing the cobbled streets of surrounding hillside villages, relax in the garden with a glass of Vino Nobile. Getting around Public transport is available outside the main gate, with regular buses to Siena and Arezzo. From the train station in Arezzo, it is possible to connect to any part of Italy. More
