Activities and surrounding

At Agriturismo La Lucciolaia the attentive owner, Sabrina Niccolai, has wisely blended history and tradition with a necessary modernization of the producing facilities. Here you will find:
delicious breakfasts with a savoury/sweet buffet to taste the finest Tuscan pastry and the traditional seasoned meats are served in the lovely ground-floor dining room at Podere La Lucciolaia. In summertime, breakfast is served in the outside paved terrace overlooking the swimming pool.
Inviting traditional Tuscan dinners are served in the lovely dining room. In spring and summertime dinner is served on the outside paved terrace overlooking the swimming pool, under a starry sky.
Guided tours to the modern and efficient wine cellar, 8km away from Podere La Lucciolaia, with its fascinating barrels and barriques stockrooms, two different areas for red wine and for white wine making, a bottling and storage room for refinement in bottle. To be mentioned the estate mill where, from late October to December, visitors can attend the oil making process and the magic moment when olives are pressed to obtain an excellent extra-virgin olive oil.
Guided wine tasting in the beautiful and professional tasting room, next to the winery, where visitors can taste several types of local wines (red and white wines, vintage wines or for long ageing) that made Azienda Agricola Palagetto famous all over the world. Not to forget Vin Santo (typical Tuscan dessert wine), grappa, and precious extra-virgin olive oil.

Relax in the well-kept gardens, on the panoramic sun terrace, and by the lovely swimming pool, where a gazebo provides a nice shady place.
La Lucciolaia is ideally located for unforgettable walks throughout the hills, across the vineyards, the olive groves, and the woodland to soak up the atmosphere of this natural paradise walking along the well-marked footpaths of the CAI network in the region of San Gimignano.

For guests willing to discover Tuscany, the position of Agriturismo La Lucciolaia is the best of two worlds: the most prized medieval art towns – such as Siena, Colle di Val d’Elsa, Monteriggioni – can be visited on a day trip. Florence, with its Renaissance treasures, is also easily accessible, whilst the Tuscany coast can be reached in less than 1 hour by car.

We can provide you many other services such as: shopping tours, sightseeing tours, trekking tours, bike tours, cooking classes and many more...

    Wonderful view over the countryside. Would have been nice to have a couple of chairs in the room and perhaps a place to put your suitcases.

    "Amazing location but needs some attention to the properties"

    08/30/2018

    The location was fantastic and reception staff very helpful, however the accommodation and the pool area needs to be updated. It wasn't very clean also the breakfast room was full of flies and the choice was limited compared to other places.
