A perfect medieval castle overlooks the hamlet "borgo" that has been turned into a vacation village with ten accommodations as well as a four room B&B. The views of the Chianti hills are open and lovely.

Location

Chianti and Tuscany lie beyond with so many fabled towns and villages to explore, you will be torn between enjoying your village or visiting new ones. You are, amazingly, a fifteen minute drive from the A1 highway that links Rome with Florence, but unless you know how to find this property, it is unlikely you will discover it. Arezzo, famous for its antiques market, charm, and medieval jousting is half an hour`s drive. Siena is a 45 minute drive, Florence an hour, and Rome`s airport about three hours. You can avoid driving into Florence by catching the local train that gets you right into the center of that city in an hour.

The restaurant that serves six days a week during mid and high season is a real bonus. Breakfast is included with the B&B rooms and is available to apartment and cottage residents for an extra charge. Dinner served five nights: M,T,Th,F,Sat. There is a small bar and local wine and olive oil are available for purchase. You may reserve cycling tours, mountain bike rentals, guided walks and treks, and private or group cooking lessons.

This lovely property has so much to offer to the vacationer whether a couple or an extended family. The variety of accommodations welcomes mixed groups and family reunions, too. Close to well-known towns like Arezzo and Siena, it also lets you wander solitary among the olive groves and ancient hills.

The property has 700 acres of woods, olive groves and vineyards to wander. An unrestored borgo used for farm purposes lies a hundred yards down the road and just beyond is a fishing lake. Fishing poles are available. The large, sunny swimming pool (26x66 feet or 8x20m) is almost competition size. You may reserve cycling tours, guided walks and treks, and private or group cooking lessons.

The furnishings are of a high quality. The apartments have air conditioning in the bedrooms, external telephone lines, well-equipped kitchens, and satellite TV for English language news programs, placing these accommodations a cut above many.

Interior

Our Guest Reviews

Perfect vacation spot
Jun 2017

We have returned again and again to this very special destination, near the small town of Bucine. We had never stayed here in June and really enjoyed this time of year and the use of the wonderful pool and the surrounding gardens. Our accommodations were perfect, clean, orderly and very quiet and private as always. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, an easy drive to Florence, Arezzo, Siena, the Chianti Mountains and Montelchino, etc.
The small town of Bucine has a small but very good farmers market every Wednesday, they also have an excellent butcher who sends you home with some of his own homemade sausage as a little gift. The fruit/vegetable market next to him is also very good, and they are very friendly. There is an excellent laundry service right next to the COOP as you first enter the town, they wash, fold and iron your clothes, it is a wonderful service. We do not go to restaurants, but prefer to stay in and cook. We would definitely recommend to couples, families with small children, anyone, this very magical place.
[Thank you so much Kristin! The Italy Perfect Team]

We would be very happy to go back.
Sep 2016

I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that our trip to Tuscany and Rome was wonderful. Your help and your website really made our trip run very smoothly. We found Bucine to be a wonderful, serene spot in the Tuscan hills and being off the beaten path only added to the magic. The accommodations were beautiful, clean and well tended. Dinner and breakfast were tasty. Antonella is personable, kind and attentive. Her suggestions for dinner and towns to explore were spot on. We would be very happy to go back. Thank you for connecting us with a special place.

Our favorite place
Nov 2015

This is our fifth trip to Bucine and as always we were welcomed and treated royally. We come off season, so we were the only guests at this time, it was very quiet and private. The apartment we rented is for two people and is just perfect with a small fireplace, adequate kitchen with a stove and oven. It is very clean and very well maintained. The staff is always available if you have questions and they have good recommendations. There are many hiking trails if you like that sort of thing, and Florence is and Arezzo are a 30 minute drive away, Cortona is about 45 minutes away. I would recommend shopping in the small shops in downtown Bucine, you need to check the store hours, but they have an excellent meat market and fruit and vegetable market. The Coop store at the top of the hill is not that great. We will definitely return, hopefully next fall.

[We so appreciate your repeat business and your fondness for Bucine! The Italy Perfect Team]

We were very pleased with our accommodations

We were very pleased with our accommodations…great location for catching train to Florence and visiting the surrounding towns in Tuscany. I would definitely recommend to our traveling friends. We so enjoyed getting to know the owners!

Che Bella
Oct 2015

Never having visited Italy or Tuscany before, the vast beauty was overwhelming. The remote nature of Tenuta Lupinari only enhanced that sense. The accomomdations were not only adequate but difficult to describe even with picture to our friends and family here in the U.S. We were treated with great respect by the stafff. We had several requests and they were attended to immediately and with gentleness and concern. It woud have been to our advantage to have used their restaurant facitlies more than we did. Going to other locations, for instance nearby Ambra opened up numerous excellent dining choices, but missing the special cooking at Lupinari is our loss. Next time! I have previously commented that by coming at the beginnin gof the low season meant that for four of our seven days we were the only guests. This allowed the staff more flexibiity but also left us isolated betweeen 9 pm and 9 am. Nothing like utter silence and darkness away from everything and everybody to spark one's imagination of 'creepy things in the night.' Our day trips to Montapulciano, Montalcino, Venice, Florence, Sienna and Orvieto were made with ease, especially from the Bucine Train Station.. (a ticket machine, no staff there, but many trains throughout the day to make it convenient.) There are two vineyards within a short and easy drive that we would highly recommend for atmosphere, wine tasting and local conversation--Fattoria Casabianca Agriturismo, Miglarina, and a third, Felsina. Il campo in Sienna is a surprise treat among the many delights of Tuscany. Thumbs up to Italy Perfect! Thx

Our memorable stay at Bucine Loggetta
Nov 2014

We stayed at Bucine Loggetta for a week in late Sept.-early October, when the weather was fabulous - sunny and in the 70s almost every day - grapes were being harvested and wine was being made. What a once in-a-lifetime experience! It is a beautiful, off-the-beaten path accommodation, and a good place from which to explore Tuscany with a car.

It's a bit tricky to find the first time - you drive a mile or so off the main road through Bucine, then turn into this dirt and gravel road that winds past Cypress Trees, vineyards, and olive groves until you see the castle on the horizon - stunning. Our one bedroom villa was very nice, with a kitchen, living room, patio and adequate bathroom with a small shower. Olive groves and gorgeous pots of flowers were right outside our entrance. My only suggestion is that they update the guide to restaurants, etc. in the living room - it was a few years old.

The staff was also welcoming and friendly - Marianna, whose family owns and runs the estate, Oana, who worked in the afternoons, and Angela the chef. I highly recommend taking a cooking class with Angela. While Oana translated, we made homemade tagliatelle, a ragout or meat sauce, meatballs, sauteed eggplant, roasted and grilled peppers, and tiramisu. Delicious!

The location is somewhat remote so you need a car, but it's a quiet and relaxing place where you can enjoy the region while still having a restful vacation. We drove everywhere in Tuscany except Florence - my advice is to take the train from Montevarchi, about 20 minutes away (although leave more time - it's a bit tricky to find and parking is tough). Trains run more often from here than Bucine.

We also recommend the coop market in Montevarchi. While there is one closer in Bucine, it's small. The one in Montevarchi is huge with rows and rows of produce, fresh cheeses, all kinds of groceries and other items - almost like a Whole Foods with merchandise. An area restaurant we highly recommend: Bottega di Duddova, a tiny, five-table restaurant in an equally tiny hilltop village, where you feel like you are in someone's Tuscan kitchen. Run by Leonardo and his family, the food is simple and local but fabulous, and one of the desserts is called Momma's cake. Also worth a visit is a shop in nearby Ambra, on the main road across from the shoe outlet, that sells only local olive oil, wine and honey.

Italy Perfect was very a great way to reserve our villa, accommodating and responsive to our inquiries. I would highly recommend them and our particular accommodation, Bucine Logetta.

[Thank you so much for your delicious review and the opportunity to enjoy your vacation vicariously! The Italy Perfect Team]

Bucine Loggetta
Nov 2013

Our third trip to This property, this unit has been our favorite so far and perfect for two people. The accommodations and perfect, the area is beautiful, great for hikes and centrally located to visit many towns and areas of Italy. It is an easy drive to Florence. The local butcher, fruit market in Bucine are excellent, across the main highway that leads into .bucine from the castle is a great antichi forno in poggi, there are signs. If you need a large market the Coop in Montevarchi is open everyday until 9:00 pm, which is very helpful. We would definitely recommend this to friends and plan to return next year.

Bucine Loggetta is approximately 10 minute drive to the town of Bucine. It is quiet, relaxing and well off the beaten path while at the same time unique in that it has a castle on site where the owners reside. You are surrounded by grapes, olive trees and well maintained gardens and landscaping including a large outdoor pool that too is well maintained. Reception personel are extremely helpful when needing assistance including recommendations on restaurants, shopping or use of the train. Dining is conveniently available on site however we found better options elsewhere but required to drive.

A Little Bit of Heaven in Tuscany
Jun 2013

An out of the way, idyllic setting to spend several days or weeks in Tuscany. It's located 10 minutes from Bucine (a train stop on the way to Florence or Arezzo-you need a car to go anywhere). The accommodations were wonderful, the people there are terrific; kind, patient and helpful. We had two dinners prepared at Bucine Loggetta and they were delicious as was their wine (from grapes grown on the property. We also bought food and wine from one of the markets we visited and had a lovely dinner on our patio. About an hour drive from most of the Tuscan hill towns, I would strongly urge getting a Garmin GPS (or one like it)-I don't think we could have navigated without it. The only thing that we regret is not taking a cooking class.

Richard and Jill, Los Angeles

The accomodations and staff were 5 star.
Jul 2012

The Bucine area was perfect! The location was centrally located to visit many cities. The accomodations and staff were 5 star. The setting for the castle and villas were from a dream. The pool was so peaceful and refreshing.
We visited Florence, Sienna, Montepulciano, Pienza and the secret gem called Arezzo during out stay.
Pat and Lisa of Italy Perfect were great in helping us throughtout the process in selecting this place.
