“Tuscany at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Tenuta Sant'Ilario is beautifully located, with a wonderful view of Tuscany. The hosts are kind and helpful. Appartment Chiosco is well equipped for two and has its own private terrace. It proved an excellent point of departure for day trips to towns like Sienna and Florence. The countryside nearby is charming and we made a very nice walk from Gambassi Terme (Parco Benestare, Route 2). We can definitely recommend Tenuata Sant'Ilario!

We were all blown away with the villa here and the surrounding countryside. The breathtaking 360 degree views were such a treat to look at each day. The grounds were all stunningly kept with beautiful gargens and pools. The location was perfectly positioned for visiting all of Tuscany - only 40mins/1hr drive from Sienna and Florence and lots of lovely nearby towns as well.
We will definitely be back! LOVED it!!

+ Beautiful countryside, lovely decorated rooms with style, very romantic and relaxing atmosphere, very helpful staff. Good breakfast that you can enjoy in the garden. Nice swimming pool. Good starting point for making trips around Tuscany (San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, …).

- Somewhat bad macadam road to the facility (last 1,5 km). We observed many guests who were obviously missing a luggage trolley with large wheels for moving luggage from parking to the room (approx. 75 m) on the gravel path that is unsuitable for small luggage wheels.

Amazing property in a perfect location. The property finds between the tuscan hills and the nature....as a dream! We walked all days through the country roads. Internet wi-fi service available at the reception...important for me I have to work also during holiday :-(
Apartment spacious and cleaned, beds comfortable, kitchen with all fornitures we need for stay. We will recommend to our friends too....
