This large historic villa is situated in an idilic spot at the end of a narrow road surrounded by spectacular views of vineyards and wheat fields edged with olive trees. The relatively modest front door conceals a grand and spacious family house whose beautiful beamed ceilings give it a homely elegance. The ground floor extends to a handful of large reception rooms and the dining room. The upper floor retains additional reception rooms with high ceilings decorated with painted cornices typical of late 19th century and short corridors lead to bedrooms situated across two floors. All the bedrooms are named after local towns and villages. Our room was simply yet adequately furnished in subdued light tones. There is a fridge with enough room to cool your own drinks if you prefer. Our bathroom was fairly large with a proper wash basin big enough for two, hairdryer and a large jacuzzi bath with overhead shower attachment. The family has occupied the house for three generations and created a wonderful environment by retaining the baggy old-world charm of the existing villa while making seamless additions such as the self-service breakfast room and the concealed pool with ample surrounding terrace. The kitchen, definitely tipping toward gourmet, provides delicious dinner and breakfast menus and our experience here deserves a separate review. If you like risotto, do not let this opportunity pass you by. It is wonderful to find oneself in a place that is so quintessentially italian: we will definitely make sure we return to Villa San Luchessa.
