May we offer you our dream villa in the Chianti Hills of Tuscany? Would the breathtaking views overlooking valleys, vineyards and olive groves entice you to stay awhile? Perhaps it will be the infinity pool and jacuzzi? The beautiful gardens surrounding the villa or the lovely village of Barberino val d’Elsa? Or could it be all of these?
We present our beautifully restored villa, Il Santo, comprised of two buildings: a magnificent tower and the original hay barn, connected by a glass corridor but rented as one independent villa. The villa, with a separate studio apartment at pool level and seven double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms can accommodate 16 guests. A very well equipped large kitchen, huge dining room and several living rooms complete the interior offering and an assortment of furnished outdoor areas and al fresco dining terrace entice you to linger outdoors.
A typically Italian garden, with lawns adorned with roses, jasmine and indigenous plants and flowers offers our guests different areas to relax in with complete privacy. The infinity swimming pool with its annexed Jacuzzi overlooks the amazing Chianti countryside. Vineyards changing colors with the seasons and the silhouetted towers of the San Gimignano skyline on the horizon, guarantee complete relaxation under the Tuscan sun.
