Borgo Lucignanello is situated in the southern most part of Tuscany, in the tiny medieval hamlet of Lucignano d'Asso. Borgo Lucignanello is comprised of five houses and a farmhouse, this latter transformed into splendid country residence. The restoration of the buildings was supervised by Italy's highly esteemed architectural restorer, Paolo Alberto Rossi.
All units feature typical Tuscan building materials such as local travertine marble, terracotta, and seasoned wood. The interior decoration is characterised by trompe-l'oeil motifs, hand-painted ceramics, and the use of hessian, canvas, pale jacquard textiles and bright printed cottons.
The houses Casa Amadeo, Casa Remo, Casa Clementina, Casa Severino and Casa Maria, feature traditional Tuscan fireplaces and antiques, and boast delightful views of the village, the church courtyard and the surrounding countryside. A large panoramic swimming pool is situated on the hillside and reserved for guests staying at Borgo Lucignanello.
The 18th century farmhouse, Casale Sarageto, has four bedrooms with private bathrooms, a sitting room with impressive open fireplace, a traditional Tuscan kitchen, and a large dining room. The loggia is equipped with barbecue and oven. Casale Sarageto has a delightful garden with private swimming pool.
At Borgo Lucignanello guests while away the hours relaxing by the pool or partaking in one of the resort's olive oil tastings or cooking classes. Wine lovers will want to visit the nearby towns of Montalcino, famous for its Brunello wine, and Montepulciano, where the Nobile di Montepulciano is produced.
