Santa Fausta is a pretty, stone Tuscan villa located within a short walk to Lucignano, which is a lovely medieval town found between Arezzo and Siena. It is a semi-detached villa on two floors with a shaded table and 6 chairs outside to dine al fresco.
The pool, which is shared with the owners, is a short walk away from the villa. It has a fantastic view of Lucignano and plenty of space to relax.
Inside is a modern villa with an open plan dining room and lounge. The wood and marble dining table is surrounded by six chairs. To one side is an antique sideboard and a writing desk with chair.
In a corner of the room is a fireplace which is surrounded by a comfortable double sofa and armchair with a simple single futon against the wall. Double glass doors provide the room with plenty of light and a second access to the garden.
Off the dining area is a small but well equipped kitchen with a little pantry attached. It includes gas hobs, an oven, a dishwasher and a fridge with separate freezer section.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. The first of the two bedrooms is a twin room with matching iron beds and a lovely wood floor. In the room is a writing desk with chair and a double, wooden wardrobe.
The second room, at the end of the hall, is a double bedroom. It has lots of space and the same wood floor as the twin room. To one side is a simple futon. A writing desk and a wooden double wardrobe completes the furnishings. Two windows provide the room with amble light.
1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom.
The double cannot be made into a twin. The twin room can be set up as a double if this is requested when booking.

Pros Close to lovely little, non-tourist-overrun, medieval town. Fantastic views of town. Quiet & private. Nice neighbour, although rarely there. Neighbour's cat very sweet (please drive slowly...she comes out to greet you). Owner's mother brought fresh flowers & eggs. Newly planted blooming flowers in outdoor pots. Beautifully decorated with numerous paintings on walls. Owner helpful to book things for us. Everything worked, & when did not, owner immediately fixed. No need to drive to Arezzo for shopping. Daily markets nearby & small grocery stores in Lucignano supplied all our needs. Regarding a previous complaint about beds - mattresses were comfortable. Beds here are different from home. The top mattress rests on a wire frame, hence the "sag". Only noticeable when sitting on bed, otherwise slept well.
Cons Although there was some information, in the form of brochures, about local interests, I found it a bit hodgepodge. A previous rental we had had a beautifully organized binder with information on topics (hiking, bike riding, etc) & what to do and see for each town. While there was a brochure on a bike/hike path in the river valley, I would've liked some hiking route information for nearby walks in the hills, or from town-to-town. While driving, I passed a couple of sign-posted walking route maps, but they were quite far from SF. I would've loved to know if there were any nearby.
Local attractions SNOOPY ICE CREAM Owner Ecio is friendly, helpful, speaks fluent English. He was a pleasure to get to know. Ice cream is fresh & delicious. Interesting place to sit & people-watch, indoors or out. Local school children flock here, running, upon school dismissal. A pleasure. Other than an ice cream, or 2, every day, we didn't eat out, because we used our kitchen. We just enjoyed the town, the tiny museum, the countryside around. Close to Siena & Florence for day trips. Montepulciano & Pienza were also lovely.

Pros Die Lage ist absolut brilliant. Der Ausblick vom Haus aus ist fantastisch. Es sind nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß zum Zentrum von Lucignano. Das Haus hat alles, was man für einen entspannten Aufenthalt benötigt und bietet genug Platz für 4 Personen. Besonders hervorzurufen ist der Pool. Mit bequemen Liegen und Spielzeug für die Kinder ausgestattet, kann man dort den ganzen Tag verbringen. Auch vom Pool aus hat man einen tollen Ausblick auf Lucignano. Um den Pool herum gibt´s reichlich duftende Kräuter und andere mediterane Pflanzen. Alles in allem ein schönes Haus in toskanischem Stil.
Cons Leider gab es bei unserem Aufenthalt 3 Sachen zu bemängeln. 1. Die Fliegengitter (es gibt dort sehr aggressive Mücken) waren ziemlich kaputt und daher nur begrenzt nützlich, so dass immer wieder Mücken unsere Nachtruhe störten. 2. Eine Erneuerung der Matratzen wäre dringend nötig. Die Betten sind schon ganz schön durchgelegen. 3. Ein wenig mehr Sauberkeit wäre wünschenswert (Ameisen am Küchenfenster, Spinnenweben in den Ecken, Fenster putzen).
Local attractions Sehr zu empfehlen die "Gelateria Snoopy" mit dem leckersten Eis aller Zeiten und einem Wirt, der ein wenig deutsch und etwas englisch spricht und uns so charmant über unsere Sprachbarriere verhelfen konnte. Wer mal richtig schick italienisch essen gehen möchte ist im "Il Goccino" gut aufgehoben. Ist aber etwas preisintensiv dort. Einfacher, aber trotzdem lecker ist es im "La Maggiolata. Pizza und Pasta waren wirklich gut. Einen Spaziergang aus Lucignano heraus und durch die Olivenhaine sollte man sich nicht entgehen lassen.

Pros La piscine "privée" et son mobilier, logement spacieux, la pergola, la vue sur le village, l'équipement de la maison (électroménager: lave linge, lave vaisselle...), l'accueil des propriétaires, la discrétion des propriétaires (nous ont laissé la piscine)et la proximité du village.
Cons Beaucoup de moustiques, moustiquaires endommagées, bruit de la route la nuit, literie très moyenne, piscine rapidement à l'ombre et absence de wifi (pourtant indiqué sur le site to-toscane).
Local attractions Gelateria Snoopy, Restaurant Il goccino, Arezzo, Sienne, Montepulciano et piscine.
