La Lucertola is a peaceful, eco-friendly, country retreat, providing guests with the perfect base to explore this beautiful part of Tuscany. The farmhouses are set on the slopes of ”Monti Pisani” – an environmentally protected area of outstanding natural beauty and tranquillity – and are reached by private road above the hamlet of Pugnano, close to San Giuliano Terme.

Nestled in its own private olive grove, La Lucertola offers spectacular, uninterrupted views over forest, field, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Mediterranean Sea. It’s an enchanting location; flowers, fireflies and jasmine blossom abound with the peace is punctuated by birdsong.

There’s ample space around the house to lounge, explore, cook, play and swim. The beaches are close by, less than 30 minutes away. Pisa and Lucca, are both 20 minutes away and Florence just an hour.

Each semi-detached farmhouse includes:

  • Flexible accommodation
  • 2 bedrooms (configurable as doubles, twins and with extra beds/cots)
  • 2 bathrooms
  • Lounge (with sofabeds)
  • TV/ DVD player/MP3/CD/Radio

Why La Lucertola is greener:

  • The electricity supply is entirely generated by photo-voltaic solar panels
  • A natural spring provides mineral water for both farmhouses and the swimming pool
  • During the drier months, rainwater is collected to water the garden and allotments
  • During the colder months, the farmhouses can be heated with wood (in addition to central heating). The wood is cut annually from the olive trees and is therefore a renewable energy source
  • Glass, plastic, tins, paper are recycled
  • Old clothes, towels and sheets are donated to charity
  • Public transport is encouraged. Using trains and buses one can easily get to Pisa and Lucca, and from there onto Florence, Siena, Vinci and other spots in Tuscany
