Borgo Lucignanello, the art of living in Tuscany
"Two roads, two tiny churches, a cluster of cottages, a farmhouse set in beautiful gardens.
All around, the olive groves and cypress tree studded hills of the Crete Senesi.
Borgo Lucignanello is a precious fragment of Medieval Tuscany just waiting to be discovered..."
from "La Repubblica"
A tiny medieval hamlet in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Lucignano d'Asso is home to Borgo Lucignanello, a group of historic houses which have been transformed into exclusive self-catering holiday apartments, ideal for those travelers eager to experience the very best of this, one of Italy's most loved regions.
Borgo Lucignanello provides beautiful guest accommodation in five apartments and a farmhouse all of which characterized by a pleasing combination of modern day comfort and old world charm.
In whichever house you choose to stay, you'll find everything you'll need for a dream holiday in Tuscany.

Between the Crete Senesi and the Val d'Orcia, and only a few kilometers away from the Umbrian border: Borgo Lucignanello is surrounded by the breathtakingly beautiful countryside of Southern Tuscany.
Borgo Lucignanello is situated in the tiny medieval hamlet of Lucignano d'Asso, a fraction of the commune of San Giovanni d'Asso. The hamlet is located in southern Tuscany, between the Val d'Orcia and the Crete Senesi, near to the Umbrian border. From Lucignano d'Asso, guests reach Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia and Montepulciano in less than 30 minutes. Siena and Arezzo are no more than an hour's drive away.
How to get here
Borgo Lucignanello is situated in the open countryside and, therefore, best reached by car. If you are traveling by plane, we advise you to rent a car at the airport. If you are traveling by train, we suggest you travel to Chiusi railway station (well connected with both Florence and Siena) and hire a car from there. If you do not want to drive, we will be pleased to organize transfers to and from the airport or station, as well chauffeur driven cars with which to explore the area during your stay at Borgo Lucignanello.
