“Welcomed like family”
Reviewed 6 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We settled in easily at Dario's rental. Upon arrival we toured his wine making cellar and sampled his various wines. The home is beautifully built and our "apartment" was clean, cozy and comfortable. It is possible to walk to Lucignano on the road, but the cars are going fast and the shoulder is not meant for pedestrians. The drive to town takes 5 minutes and we always found free parking.
Close to our rental we could walk to a wonderful bakery full of temptations and just beyond that a bar where we had our morning capuccini. Tourists were scarce and we felt we were living in a typical Italian village.
We usually made our dinners at the rental and ate outside. We shopped at the Coop in Sinalunga where one can find almost everything.
We highly recommend eating at "La Rocca" in Lucignano. Upstairs is a terrace with gorgeous Tuscan views.
I consider Dario a friend after getting to know him over glasses of his own organic wine.

“Idyllic oasis in the Tuscany countryside.”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We just returned from 5 days at the most perfect spot. Our daughter is studying in Arezzo and we wanted to stay close enough to her but still be able to enjoy a a more rural environment. We found it!! Dario is a warm, gracious host who welcomed us into his world. Not only was the apartment quiet, welcoming and comfortable but our host shared places to go for amazing meals and suggestions for things to do as we tried to fit two weeks worth of traveling into 5 days. We came in as strangers and left as friends. We will be returning! Thank you, Dario. We had a wonderful holiday.

“A fabulous Tuscan getaway”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We spent a week here in December & highly recommend choosing this as your Tuscan escape. Our host, Dario, is a lovely host; generous with his time, his local knowledge...& his wine. He was so helpful during our time with him, giving us some fantastic suggestions of places to go & things to do. Situated in a great location if you want to explore some of the beautiful villages throughout Tuscany & about 5 minutes from the lovely village of Lucignano, the apartment is comfortable, cozy & well-equipped for the perfect stay. We'll be back one day & look forward to enjoying Dario's hospitality once again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

“Marvellous stay in Italy”
Reviewed 11 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

From our arrival and meeting Dario our stay was a pleasure. We had a tour of the property which included a wine tasting. Great stuff. Dario makes guests welcome and takes an interest in where you are going, what you might like in the area and offers suggestions of routes to take. The flat is well equipped and comfortable, there is a well stocked woodshed available to visitors which complements the central heating.
We have no hesitation in recommending this property to couples looking for a slice of the good life in Tuscany.

“The best of Tuscan Hospitality”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

If you are looking for the perfect holiday retreat in Tuscany - this is it.
The apartment in Lucignano is tastefully furnished and designed to accommodate your every need. The photos on the web page and its description is exactly what you see on arrival.
Dario has the ability to make his guests feel very special. He is both charming and knowledgeable about all things Italian and offers valuable information about the local and surrounding areas. In short, a brilliant raconteur
His mother, ( who is a wonderful cook) has the most beautiful smile that makes you feel welcome in any language.
The organic wine, the Limoncello, Grappa, fresh vegetables from his mothers garden and fresh eggs from the chickens, all form part of the wonderful lifestyle on Dario's vineyard property, surrounded by Olive trees.
Our invitation to a family dinner one night for a typical Tuscan meal was a memorable occasion, as were the late night discussions with Dario over a couple of bottles of his organic wine.
The outdoor area offers alfresco dining for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with views overlooking the hilltop village of Lucignano.
Our two week stay with Dario and his family formed part of our 3 month European holiday from Australia.
It was without doubt the highlight of our journey and will remain a long and lasting memory of our time spent in this wonderful location.
Highly recommended. Thank You Dario, from Julie & Phillip

Many and many thanks for your nice review and your kind company during your stay here, I cannot find the right words to explain my happiness during our conversations between one glass of my wine and the other.
Surely will be a fantastic remember and if you want to come back in this corner of Tuscany the door will be always open, thanks a lot once again, a big hug, Dario.

“Lovely stay in the wonderful house of a 'friend'”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Perfectly located to visit the City of Arezzo, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and many more.
The Apartment in Dario' s amazing house was just lovely. It was very well equipped and perfectly clean. The house itself is built of old stones - gorgeous!
We enjoyed our breakfast and our night cup on the terrace, looking at Lucignano in top of the hill.
Dario is a host, who makes you feel at home from the very first minute. He showed us his wine cellar and gave us various bottles to taste. We enjoyed the organic wine, the home made Limoncello and Dario's company on the first evening. We will keep the empty bottles as a souvenir.
Looking back to 2 weeks holidays in Tuscany and Amalfi coast, we must say that our stay in Croce/Lucignano was one of the best. Due to Dario's hospitality we felt welcome and at home.
Last but not least a Restaurant recommendation: 'La Rocca' in Lucignano - they serve excellent food.

“A dream vacation”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Having spent half a century on our dear planet, we chose to celebrate in Tuscany, my lady and I. Our host, Dario, greeted us with a smile and a bottle of his more than excellent organic wine. He spent the first evening (and many afterwards) with us, showing us around his property, sharing his wine and giving us many, many tips about where to go, what to do in Tuscany. Dario is the best host ever, he treated us like friends from the first moment he saw us. Very kind and open, generous (his Chianti might just be the best wine in the world... :)) and knowledgeable. We were supposed to leave for home just on the day of the famous Palio in Siena. Of course, we couldn't have done that, Dario explained to us. So once more, thank you Dario, for your hospitality and generosity!
The apartment is a part of the host's magnificent house and fully equipped. Beautiful and cool in hot summer days, impeccably clean, ready to accept weary travelers. A living room/kitchen with all the amenities, TV, WiFi, a fireplace and a bottle of olive oil in the cupboard. The bedroom stays cool in the summer, thanks to the thick walls of the house. We slept soundly and comfortably, waking up rested and ready for new adventures each and every day.
Dario's property is located just south of picturesque Lucignano - some 20 minutes walking distance. The view from the patio is magnificent, there's a large table in the shade, perfect for evening talks under the full moon and a glass of Dario's fine wine. The whole property is beautiful, typically Tuscan; there's a vineyard, an ancient cellar (one of Dario's offices!), a garden with a shed nearby and hens for the best eggs for breakfast.
If you travel by car, this is the perfect home base for daily trips around Tuscany. The grand, old town of Cortona, the nearby villages of Lucignano, Monte San Savino, Sinalunga and of course, Siena, Arezzo and Florence. Many sites to see, from ancient monasteries and towns to modern outlet shopping in Valdichiana, if you are so inclined.
The whole region is ancient, you can sense the centuries in each brick, stone and wall. Tuscany people are proud of their heritage, friendly and open.
In one sentence: Dario is the best, friendliest host for the best holiday ever! Thank you!
