About our stay in your beautiful Italian dream Villa in Lucignano:
We had a fantastic holiday at Borgo Tenuta la Selva in Lucignano.
The huge estate really had so much to offer...!
The 5 families (in total 18 people, 9 adults and 9 children) could all choose their own suitable apartment, each complete with kitchen and bathroom.
For everything we did together (and that was a lot) there was a large central kitchen and large terraces both in front of and behind the main building. In the morning we could have breakfast in the shade on the covered terrace at the front, while in the evening we always chose the now shaded back. Nice near the barbecue and the central kitchen. We also found a place at the cozy standing tables for drinks in the early evening. And while the grown-ups often sat at the table for a long time (with a beautiful view of the surrounding Tuscan landscape, the children could again swarm out over the enormous terrain with all kinds of play options.
The heat in the last week of July 2022 meant that we spent a lot of time in and around the pool. Especially with the little ones, the jacuzzi was also a favorite. And thanks to the warm weather, it was often possible to swim until dusk! Exciting !
What was very nice was that every morning the 'poolboy' came by very early. He not only checked the quality of the water, but also took care of a clean toilet next to the pool and even arranged umbrellas and sun loungers every day, so that everything was neatly ready for us again.
On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Monika and also during our stay she was always available for questions and possibly. solutions to problems. When the air conditioning in one of the upstairs apartments did not provide sufficient cooling, action was taken several times to resolve the problem. Unfortunately, that only happened halfway through the holiday week. The family therefore 'moved' earlier to the still vacant unit in the other building.
But otherwise nothing but praise for Tenuta la Selva: the stately driveway with shaded parking spaces for many cars, the large terrain with so many possibilities that we have not been able to use them all, the beautiful view all around and much more. In the evening we saw in the distance above the pool the hill with lights of Lucignano. Of course we also made some trips to nice places in the Tuscan country (Siena, Cortona, Pienza), but less than we had planned. The heat made early morning the best time to do anything. In the afternoon almost everyone could be found in or around the pool. The children even organized a complete 'dolphin show' ...
A holiday week like this passes far too quickly: after a week the family 'swarmed' again over Italy, Austria or Switzerland or back to the Netherlands, where fortunately the sun shone (and shines) exuberantly this year. Fortunately, with many beautiful photos and a 'backpack' full of beautiful memories of Tenuta la Selva Il Borgo di Lucignano.
Thank you so much for everything, Monika !
We didn‚Äôt know Italydreamvillas before, but thanks to you it felt good and reliable from the first moment of our correspondence !
With many kind regards from the family,
