Belvedere Lucciana is located just outside the tiny hamlet Lucciana which is found about 4km from the Tuscan town Casole d'Elsa. The pretty stone villa is in a completely fenced garden and has stunning views of the nearby town and Tuscan hills that surround it.
The pool is located in the garden area, 30 metres to the side of the property. It's surrounded by the garden dotted with olive trees and very well maintained. The pool area is paved with terracotta and furnished with sun-beds and umbrellas that look out onto the stunning open views across the farmland and vineyards. It is exclusive to the property.
Belvedere Lucciana has two wonderfully sunny terraces, each furnished with a table, chairs and umbrella for outdoor dining. The terraces look out towards Casole d'Elsa and the Tuscan countryside.
 
Crossing the first terrace there is access to the villa through a large arched door. This leads into the bright open plan living area. To the right is a double door going out to the second terrace. The room has a double sofa and two armchairs around a stone fireplace ideal for cooler evenings.
 
To the far end of the room is the kitchen and dining area. The dining table is a large wooden table that seats six, to one side is a flat screen TV and a wooden cupboard well stocked with glassware and crockery. The kitchen is fully equipped with 4 gas hobs, an oven, microwave and fridge with small freezer.
Leading from the kitchen is a door to a little hall, to the left is a small bathroom with shower. Going right there is a second larger bathroom and the two bedrooms. The larger bedroom has a double bed, with a traditional wooden dresser, bedside tables and a large wardrobe. There is access to the second terrace from this bright room. The window looks out onto the fabulous views of Tuscany.
The second bedroom is slightly smaller and has twin beds. The room is completed with a large wardrobe that has a couple of drawers inside. This is also a bright bedroom and has the same pretty views that the rest of the villa boasts.
 
Belvedere Lucciana is a well furnished typical Tuscan villa with excellent open views.

The twin beds can be made into a double on request.

The very discrete owners live approximately 20 metres from Belvedere Lucciana.  Their villa has no windows overlooking the rental property.

Pros This was our second stay at Belvedere Lucciana and should we return to Italy we would certainly book a week or two here again. We enjoyed all the amenities (swimming pool, nice terrace, grill, washing machine) and especially the addition of free WiFi. We absolutely love sitting on the terrace each evening enjoying the view and watching the stars. The pool is very nice and was always kept clean.
The owner was very friendly and thoughtful - she even brought us fresh tomatoes, grapes and figs.
The villa is located in the small but lovely village of Lucciana and provides a wonderful getaway, yet is convenient to visiting many local towns in Tuscany and Chianti. Some of our favorites are Monteriggiono, Volterra, Panzano, Brolio (Baron Ricasoli winery), and Florence. We rented a car during our stay, which to us is a must; however, when visitng Florence it was easier to drive 20 minutes to Pogobonsi and take the local train to and from Florence. We also like the convenience of grocery shopping about 15 minutes from the villa at the COOP in Colle Val d'Elsa. What was very surprising to us was the cost of groceries - much LESS than in the United States. NOTE: First time visitiros should be sure you have a GPS and enter the coordinates provided as the villa is not easily located otherwise.
Cons Recommend the olive trees in front of the terrace be trimmed to allow for a better view of the valley and distant hilltop town. During our 2010 visit the views were wonderful - but since then the trees have become overgrown and inhibited our view.
Local attractions During our stay in late August, Volterra was having their annual Medieval Festival. We visited the town on a Sunday and the activites were truly enjoyable; would highly recommend if staying during this time period.

Pros Les points fort de la maison sont la vue panoramique, le calme avec la piscine privée et la situation géographique entre Florence, Sienne, San Giminiano .....
La gentillesse de la propriétaire, très discrète mais qui apporte courgettes, tomates et figues de son jardin !
Une bonne bouteille de Chianti à l'arrivée ......
Cons Ce qui nous a déplu, la traversée de la zone industrielle pour accéder à la maison, le mobilier extérieur en plastique, les toiles cirées sur les tables ....et les oreillers rigides !
Local attractions Le charmant village de Casole d'Elsa et Colle di val d'Elsa ( restaurant Popularo ,,,,,,)

Pros Zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaars. Zowel het onthaal als de contacten tijdens het verblijf waren hartelijk en uiterst aangenaam. Het zwembad werd dagelijks onderhouden en de tuin was prachtig. Het huisje brengt je onmiddellijk in vakantiesfeer. Uiterst aan te raden vakantiebestemming!
Cons Niets!
Local attractions Pisa, Volterra en colle d'elsa zeker aan te raden.

Pros I have for many years wanted to visit Tuscany and stay in such a place as Belvedere Lucciana. It was all i could have asked for.
Cons We found the beds uncomfortable, especially the singles.
Local attractions Staying at Belvedere Lucciana was quite central to many places to visit including Florence, only an hour away but you need more than one day to see the real treasures. Volterra is worth a visit and the torture museum there but it is not for the faint-hearted. If you don't mind a hour or two in the car driving, the country roads to Umbria are breathtaking. And going the other direction you are only an hour or so from the coast. Something for everyone.

Pros Alles!
De geweldige ligging met alle rust en vrijheid op het stuk grond waarop het huis gelegen is, het heerlijke zwembad, het prachtige uitzicht, de buitengewoon vriendelijke en gastvrije eigenaar, de compleet uitgeruste keuken en het overall comfort van de woning!!
Local attractions Voor een heerlijke pizza en gezellige gastvrijheid bezoek zeker II Porrina in Casole d'Elsa of ga genieten van de Toscaanse keuken bij Da Remo in het prachtige Monteriggioni, de pappardelle chinghiale en de ravioli zijn een aanrader!

Pros Het huisje was proper, alles was aanwezig, de ligging was prima en rustig (enkel de krekels hoor je) de ontvangst door de huiseigenaar was uitistekend, het zicht op Colle Val d'Elza was subliem.
Cons Niets.
Local attractions We zijn enkel naar Volterra (verkenning van de stad, beklimming van de toren en bezoek aan het Etruskisch museum) en naar San Gimignano geweest.

Pros Das Dorf Lucciana ist als Ausgangspunkt für die toskanischen Sehenswürdigkeiten ausgezeichnet. Nach tollen, aber auch anstrengenden Eindrücken kann man "nach Hause" kommen und in absoluter Privatsphäre den Tag gemütlich ausklingen lassen. Der Ausblick ist äußerst beeindruckend, sodass die Villa den Namen "Belvedere" absolut verdient.
Cons Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist nicht in Ordnung! Ein Ferienhaus in dieser Kategorie müsste eigentlich über eine Klimaanlage und eine überdachte Terrasse verfügen. Die Schirme allein schaffen es nicht den ersehnten Schatten zu spenden. Der Stein heizt sich derart stark auf, dass man trotz geschlossener Fensterbalken der Hitze nicht entkommen kann. Da helfen auch keine Ventilatoren. Und durch die Entfernung zum Pool nutzt man diesen auch viel weniger als wenn er unmittelbar beim Haus wäre. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind Mangelware und nur mit erheblichen Autostrecken zu bewältigen. Man kann sich das Gedränge im COOP in Colle nicht vorstellen - da kaufen die gesamte Bevölkerung und alle Touristen der Region ein. Etwas leichter erträglich und auch günstiger sind Eurospin und simply.
Local attractions Neben den üblichen Ausflugszielen muss unbedingt San Galgano erwähnt werden. Eine Kirchenruine ohne Dach, mit irrer Akustik und atemberaubenden Fotomotiven! Wir waren begeistert :)

Pros Een prachtige ligging, mooi verzorgde tuin. Het zwembad wordt heel goed onderhouden. In de keuken is alles in ruime mate aanwezig. Prima badkamers.
Cons De afwasmachine werkte niet goed, de afwas kwam er vuil terug uit. Dus moesten we alles met de hand afwassen. Te duur voor wat het is.

Pros The view was breathtaking. We liked the quietness of the location. It was centrally located for the things and places we wanted to see in Tuscany. We would highly recomend this villa.
Cons The only thing we did't like about the villa was it did't have a dryer. the weather was very damp causing our washed cloth not to dry. This villa needs a dryer.
Local attractions We loved the small towns. Our favorite restaurant was in Colle Val D' Elsa. The name was Le Grasie. It had great food and the two brothers who owed it were helpful and very friendly.
