Come and tuck yourself away for a week or two in Casa Lucomeni, a stylish gem of a farmhouse located in the secluded hamlet of Albola. Local history tells us that the Etruscan tribe, the Lucomeni, occupied the hillside and surrounds of Albola long before the neighbouring castle, with its ‘canonica’, came to be established there some centuries later. Surrounded by the terraced garden filled with scented flowers and olive trees, leading down to the sort of pool (salt-filtered) you would expect to find in a luxury spa, within days you will begin to feel as if you too belong in Albola, just as the Lucomeni did all those years ago….
A ten-minute drive from nearby Radda-in-Chianti and a forty-five minute to one- hour drive from either Florence or Siena means Casa Lucomeni is perfectly placed for our guests to explore the beautiful heart of Tuscany. With its award-winning vineyards and stunning countryside there is much to see and do. There are winding paths to be explored whether on foot, horseback or bicycle yet, should you wish, you could choose to hide yourself away and scarcely see a soul for a week.
Casa Lucomeni was perfect for us. It is a spacious, comfortable villa, beautifully appointed in a stunning location. Raffa and Simone cooked a wonderful Tuscan lunch, and the wine from the local vineyard was fabulous. The infinity pool was lovely and well located. Going in June we had excellent weather with the added bonus of the white roses and lavender in the garden in full bloom. A perfect venue for a family celebration. We were 7 adults and one toddler and we had plenty of room. Casa Lucomeni gets 10 out of 10 – no quibbles. – Ruth Coltofeanu
