The Farm

Azienda agricola Palagetto, owned by Sabrina Niccolai, as well as Agriturismo La Lucciolaia, is a typical Tuscan concern which consists of a group of farmhouses, originally farmers' adobes, surrounded by cultivated hills where in ancient times they produced everything the family may need: wheat for bread, oil for seasoning, and wine, which was kept in typical flasks and drunk  in feast days only.

STRUCTURE

In the vicinity of the medieval centre of San Gimignano, nestled in the rolling hills of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, Agriturismo La Lucciolaia is perfectly located for exploring Tuscany’s most prized art towns. This ancient farmhouse has been recently renovated and divided into nine double rooms, where the magic atmosphere of past times is perfectly blended with modern comforts.

SURRONDINGS

Agriturismo La Lucciolaia is located not far from the historical centre of San Gimignano, in the heart of the Tuscan hilly countryside.
San Gimignano is a medieval centre of relevant historical interest. The town boasts Etruscan origins and developed in medieval times since it was on the ancient Via Francigena, an important road followed by hundreds of pilgrims and merchants. Fragments of the original walls along the via Francigena are still viewable nowadays. San Gimignano is registered in the list of Unesco’s World Heritage, and it is famous all over the world for its towers, (of the original 72 towers, only 14 remains), and for its important architectural monuments, in particular the fine Romanic Duomo. Besides its artistic treasures, the town is also famous for Vernaccia and Chianti, among the most renewed wines in Italy, which are produced in the area since the thirteenth century.
From San Gimignano, a visit to the most prized jewels of Tuscany is a lovely day trip out. The medieval towns of Siena (35Km away), Colle di Val D’Elsa (10Km), Monteriggioni (20Km), and Montalcino (90Km) are within easy driving distance, as is the Etruscan town of Volterra, 25Km away, Florence, the Cradle of Renaissance (45km), and Pisa (90Km) with its famous Piazza dei Miracoli. The region offers many attractions for those who want to enjoy the spectacular Tuscan landscape:
The region of Chianti Classico is just 30Km away, and the ancient hilltop towns of Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, and Greve in Chianti are a joy to explore;
The region of Crete Senesi, with its distintive moon-like landscape, is 40Km away. This area is also scattered with wonderful abbeys, such as Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore.
And if a day by the sea entices you, the lovely Tuscan coast is only 50 minutes drive away (80km).
For those who love walking, the area of San Gimignano offers unforgettable walks throughout the hills, across the vineyards, the olive groves, and the woodland, to breathe the atmosphere of this natural paradise along the well-marked footpaths of the CAI network.
