  • Spacious and contemporary, Villa Santa Lucia is a villa with pool set above the town of Vinci, higher on the same hill ridge. The views from here are spectacular, gazing down over the very house where Leonardo himself was born and then on the town that gave him his name. From your swimming pool you can take in the very same views that the famous artist and engineer grew up with, of vineyards, cypresses and rolling hills. The house itself is modern, with large white rooms, a modern well-equipped kitchen and a covered loggia for outside dining that enjoys the same stunning views as the pool. This is a great house for family reunions - under an hour from both Florence and Pisa airports, it affords easy access to the main sights of Tuscany as well as the perfect spot to retreat, relax and recharge. It is listed for 11 people but there are additional sofa-beds that can be put to use, please enquire for more information.


    On the ground floor a living room with fireplace adjoins a room with a grand piano in it. Close by modern and well-equipped kitchen, also with a fireplace, has easy access to a wide loggia - or covered terrace - equipped for dining al-fresco and with a barbeque at one end. On this floor and also accessible from the loggia, there is a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, equipped for disabled access and use.

    Upstairs there a 3 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and a further bedroom with a french double (140 cms) and a private bathroom, though not en-suite. Upstairs again the attic space has a double bedroom, a living room with a terrace, a kitchenette and another sofa, plus a bathroom with a shower and Jacuzzi. The sofa beds can be used as extra accommodation, please enquire if needed.

    The swimming pool is heated via solar panels. Around the pool you will find a mini-bar plus a freezer (for ice-creams!) , a changing room, a further shower room, outdoor showers and 2 safety hairdryers.

    Local area

    Villa Santa Lucia is ideally placed for exploring Tuscany - the famous sights and the hidden sides equally. You can easily reach Florence or Lucca by train, leaving your car in Empoli. This is an excellent way to visit these largely pedestrianised city centres. Or you can drive north to explore the hills and mountains of the Apennines, via the charming and often overlooking town of Pistoia. The wine region of Chianti, with its castles and vineyards, is also less than an hour away - we can organise fully blown wine tasting tours or merely give you a list of good wineries to visit for tastings. The medieval city of Siena and the ancient and towered town of San Gimignano are under an hour and a half away, making for a wonderful day out. Even Rome is within grasp, just a 2 hour train trip from nearby Empoli. But don't understimate the pleasure of small scale local exploration, trying out the restaurants, visiting local vineyards and relaxing by the pool!
