Peaceful appartment in the middle of the Tuscan hills, We enjoyed the beautiful views,could have happily sat and looked at them for ever, dipping into the pool now and again to cool off! Good base from which to visit Florence and probably Sienna...but we never got that far, the views enchanted us and we were happy to sit and enjoy... More

Great location with fantastic view on Chianti scenery: vineyards and olive trees. Only a few apartments, peaceful, nice swimming pool (with the view) and a very friendly and helpful host, Alessandro. We were happy with the airco in this very hot August week. Good shower in our apartment Girasole. Wifi available, though the quality varied a little. Basic cooking equipment,... More

Our family of 3 recently returned from Tuscany. I had booked our stay at Il Santo based on reviews about 9 months before our trip. Alessandro was very responsive to my emails. We stayed in Girasole which had a spiral staircase up to the bedroom. It met our needs perfectly. I wanted a unit with an AC in case it... More

Wow. I cannot believe there isn't more reviews on this place. Alexandro is a great host and explains everything. Even booked us a table at a restaurant he recommended. Pool is beautiful after a day exploring and very clean. Would return most definitely. Beware of mosquitoes though!!!! They are well worth putting up with though.

We were greeted by a very helpful and enthusiastic Alesandro who took his time explaining every tiny detail to us. This place truly is a slice of heaven under the Tuscan sun. Stunning views, beautiful pool and only a short drive /walk to the charming town of Greve with its bars and wine tasting. Would not hesitate to return here... More

Three of us, my sister and husband and myself, search many sites looking for the perfect place to stay in Tuscany for five days during our driving trip around Italy for four weeks. Many places we searched required a 7 day stay and did not have any air conditioning for our July, 2014 trip. We found the perfect place in... More

What a gem of a find on the internet! As we had no car we needed a place accessible on foot from a town, Greve. Although a stiff walk uphill for about 15 -20 minutes, it was well worth it for the beauty and serenity of Il Santo. The views from the outdoor balcony over the vineyards and pool area... More

We spent 2 weeks in Tuscany, early June 2014, with 6 days at Il Santo and it was absolute perfection. The property, buildings, vineyard and pool was everything we hoped it would be, and more. We cooked a few meals and ate outdoors overlooking the spectacular landscape. We often went to Greve (so close, just 1 minute drive) for cappucinos... More

I'm not one to write many reviews on Tripadvisor, but Il Santo was such a great place fun by such a nice family that I feel compelled to write something to enable others to enjoy it too. Firstly the location couldn't be better, just above Greve in Chianti overlooking the rolling hills of Tuscany you are far enough away from... More
