We are a group of 11 from Victoria, Australia who have enjoyed a fabulous week at Villa Catola in Tuscany and have been made very welcome by Fabio and his family. The villa is spacious, well equipped, comfortable and perfectly situated for a visit to Tuscany. The villa is situated centrally in Bucine with lots of amenities within 2-5 minutes walk, including the train station (to Florence and Arezzo) supermarket, cafes and bars. We were given a special tour of the immediate area and his family farm, where we indulged in some home-made wine, followed by a traditional Italian home cooked meal by his wife at the villa. As a large group we had 2 vehicles but also made use of Fabio’s van for a delightful day touring with him to the Chianti Classico area and wine tasting at a spectacular vineyard. We would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to visit and experience Tuscany.

Le petit village est l'un des plus extraordinaires exemples de l'urbanisme médiéval de par son installation à forme elliptique et variée. De par sa situation éminemment stratégique, l’histoire de son château a été marquée par de vifs et nombreux assauts tout au long des siècles. Le nom dérive probablement de Lucignano un «castrum romain» fondée par le consul Licinius. D’importantes ruines attestent d’une forte présence de colonies étrusques déjà à cette époque.
