    Accommodation

    A beautiful arched entrance opposite the owner's large villa, gives a clear idea of the charm guests will find within. The ground floor is composed of two large living areas with arched terracotta ceilings separated by a central passageway. To one side there are sofas in front of a fireplace and table for a congenial game of cards; on the other side wide arched windows give views of the surrounding greenery. The dining area at the end of this room has a table large enough to seat all guests, and it is here that the owner welcomes her guests with candles, fresh flowers and a tasting of Tuscan food on arrival night. A door from the dining room leads to a kitchen, which then opens to the terrace, furnished with a wooden table and two large umbrellas for breakfasts or summer dinners. On the first floor there are six large, bright and spacious en-suite bedrooms, which combine charm and elegant sobriety. The villa has spacious and well-landscaped grounds, with a pool and separate Jacuzzi.

    Local area

    Villa Lucia is part of what is known as the historic "Bonaparte knoll", given in 1701 to Maria Maddalena Bonaparte as part of her dowry. In 1805 the country house was passed to the family of the present owners, who have included in the villa's decor many period furnishings. The owner's own villa is a short distance away, while next to Villa Lucia is an old farmhouse, awaiting restoration.

    Once off the grounds there are also many things to do in the vicinity. San Miniato, whose historic centre is perched on the nearby hill, is a pleasant village with a fascinating history and from the villa there is easy access to the main road leading to Florence and Pisa, with Lucca, Siena and Volterra also within easy reach. The whole area offers a wide choice of cultural and enogastronomic activities. Montelupo is known for its wonderful ceramics and a school of ceramics that offers short-term courses for those who would like to learn to make their own. Cerreto Guidi, Volterra, and Certaldo are all small villages located around the area, which might make them the perfect destination for a day trip combined with a wine tasting in one of the wonderful farmhouses in the area.
