Cipresso e Pietra is a tranquil adults-only escape in southern Tuscany, just a stone’s throw from Lucignano, a small medieval village recently designated by Italy's Tourism Office as "One of the most beautiful small towns of Italy".
This is a place to unpack and unwind. We welcome long evenings, lazy mornings, and tailored experiences that help you uncover hidden gems of Tuscany. Tucked into the hillside, the location grants you views of the valley and walking distance to bars and restaurants. It is also a perfect jumping off point to explore lesser known towns and more popular destinations like Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, and San Gimignano.

Our rooms blend history with modern luxury. Once an old farmhouse dating back to the early 1800s, our latest updates bring it into the 21st century. Additionally, we believe cozy beds and comfortable rooms are essential to travel. Think fluffy duvets, organic bedding, lots of pillows, robes, AC for those hot summer days and of course ensuite bathrooms. Affordable & approachable modern luxury.
