The farm

The Agriturismo LA LUCCIOLAIA is a superb example of a traditional Tuscan farmhouse, located approximately 7 km from the historical centre of San Gimignano. From its hilltop position, breathtaking views of the surrounding vineyards stretch for miles and even the towers of San Gimignano can be admired in the distance. Here, there is nothing but peace and tranquility owing to its outstanding location. The sympathetic restoration of the farmhouse has led to the creation of 11 double bedrooms and 2 splendid, panoramic suites. In the grounds of the farmhouse, guests can enjoy the beautiful swimming pool set amongst the well tended vineyards, as well as a panoramic veranda, a favourite spot for a delicious local aperitif. From the rear of the agriturismo, views can be admired of the rolling hills, woodlands, vines, small chapels and cypress trees which are typical of the Tuscan countryside. During the day, as the hours go by, a myriad of colours slowly transform to soft lighting, culminating in breathtaking sunsets

Guests staying at the agriturismo La Lucciolaia can choose between 11 different double bedrooms or 2 panoramic suites. All the rooms offer private bathroom, satellite tv, air conditioning/heating and wi-fi connection. Each room also boasts a unique view of the rolling hills surrounding San Gimignano.

Activities and surroundings

Restaurant: Our grandparents have passed on their passion for the “fruits of the earth”. It is thanks to our grandfather in particular, Luano, a successful businessman and our hard working parents, that we have been able to keep and develop the family business, producing fine Tuscan wines and excellent quality extra virgin olive oil. Together, we have been able to realise our dreams, to live and work in this wonderful part of the world and to offer our guests our very own produce. We are keen for them to experience a welcoming, elegant environment, where they can enjoy the Tuscan “good life”.
Every evening our chef will suggest typical local dishes. Guests may taste our local cuisine choosing dishes from our à la carte menu, pairing them with a glass of excellent wine. We are confident that our staff will be able to cater for your needs.

Guided wine tasting tours: The guided tours of our modern winery and olive press are followed by a wine tasting experience, where visitors are welcome to try both red and white wines, younger and more aged. Guests are also introduced to our own extra virgin olive oil, produced on the estate. The wine tasting is carried out either in our wine tasting saloon, or in one of our barrel rooms. Experience at first hand a busy working winery.

Cooking courses: During your stay at one of our Agriturismi, you can try your hand at Tuscan cuisine. Our chefs will be more than happy to invite you to join them for a cookery course, where you can learn how to prepare traditional dishes such as home made pasta and Ragu sauce

Products

In 2015 a decision was made to develop the wine tour side of the family business. This would give our guests an exciting and unique new experience, an insiders account of the everyday running of a busy, modern winery. As part of a daily tour, our expert multilingual guides accompany visitors on a tour of the vineyards and through the cellars, where the vinification process is explained from the pressing of the grapes to the bottling process. At the end of the tour, the wine tasting is accompanied by typical products of the region such as salami, pecorino cheese, pasta and of course, the tuscan unsalted bread, which enhances the taste of the food.
The family olive press or frantoio, is also located on the winery estate. Here, the extra virgin olive oil is extracted “a Freddo”, using a cold press. Specific tours of the olive press can be arranged, during which the technique of olive oil production is explained.

During October and November the oil mill is in (its) full activity... we can therefore attend the entrance of the olives into the mill until the exit of the extra virgin olive oil: an ancient and fascinating process that, since immemorial time, offers a very good and important food to our tables
