La Casa di Lucia
“La casa di Lucia” is located at the heart of a charming Medieval village called Castelmuzio, an old Etrusco-Roman settlement. This typical village, fortified with walls and bastions, is deep in the Val d’Orcia, a famous Tuscan art and culture park that became one of UNESCO ‘s World Heritage sites on 2 July 2004. La casa di Lucia is just 4km FROM Pienza, the Renaissance town famous as the birthplace of Pope Pius II and for its popular Pecorino cheese. Nearby Montalcino, the renowned home of Brunello wine, is well worth a visit for its delightful art sites, especially the Basilica of Sant’Antimo, where a Gregorian mass is still chanted in Latin every day. Other places to visit in the area include San Quirico d’Orcia, Montepulciano, for its “vino nobile” produced by the great Poliziano winery; enchanting Monticchiello, whose villagers stage spectacular amateur theatre performances. For guests seeking a weekend of complete relaxation, why not travel the 20km or so to the spas at San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo, Chianciano Terme, or just a little further to Rapolano Terme.
The home of Lucy is an independent House situated on two levels: The House is made on the first floor living room, living room with sofa and fireplace, kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine, a bedroom with a large bathroom with shower. On the second floor there are two double bedrooms with views over the surrounding landscape, bathroom with shower, large terrace dining overlooking the village. Of course you can add a TABLE with the banks for the child smaller, high chair and pan for bathing if you have children! Adjacent to the terrace there is a small storeroom. The House (dating back to 1891) was entirely restored, where it was possible, its original characteristics: the ceilings with exposed beams, the fireplace, wooden staircases and other architectural details. The furniture is made FROM antique furniture of rustic Tuscan, coloring is clear and bright, and the House is decorated with taste and attention to detail. The linen of beds, bathroom and kitchen is fresh and aromatic, all gives a feeling of great cleaning and hygiene, which I would like very much. Upon your arrival you will find a basket of breakfast the following morning, a coffee coffee, sugar, salt and other little things that can be useful during the stay and who will make you feel at home. We will also find a glimpse of our oil and our wine produced FROM our agricultural farm located just 2 km FROM the House and a good home-made cake!
