Location

The secluded and relaxing Villa Landolfo is located a prime area of Tuscany, with a wealth of attractions nearby. Stroll to charming town of Lucignano, less than a 1 mile walk.

It is close to both Tuscan and Umbrian attractions. The medieval walled town of Lucignano has shops, restaurants and grocery stores. Lucignano, the pearl of Valdichiana, is one of the most interesting examples of medieval town planning with its elliptical structure based on concentric rings. It's a hidden gem, authentic and untouched by mass tourism, a place suspended out of time. Be sure to visit the elaborate reliquary made for the church of San Francesco in the Museum of Lucignano. Called the l'albero della vita (The Tree of Life) the central stem is supported on a Gothic reliquary, from which spread out twelve branches, surmounted by a Crucifix and a pelican. On the branches there are sprigs of coral, representing the blood of Christ.

The villa is within 30 miles of Arezzo, Siena and Lake Trasimeno and so many more amazing and sites and villages. Go horseback riding, play tennis, tour wineries, get out on the water in Lake Trasimieno there are endless possibilities surrounding you!
