Some friends and I stayed in Villa Il Santo in April. An experience ever to remember! First, the location is breathtaking. Overlooking a beautiful "Tuscan" valley, the villa has sweeping views in every direction. Imagine I can say that I sat to do my hair in the morning overlooking the famous town of San Gimignano. The infinity pool overlooks this same Tuscan countryside. Amazing experience!
The restoration of the old tower and hay barn has been meticulous. The owners paid close attention to every detail to ensure guests' comfort. There are multiple living rooms from which to chat, drink wine, watch TV, and especially admire the incredible views. The chef's kitchen has every amenity you would want to prepare a gourmet meal. I can imagine sitting at the counter and having a chef give cooking lessons, apparently an activity you can book with the owners. Every room has an en suite bathroom, a large plus that ensures privacy. Bedrooms are spacious with plenty of closet space, and the beds are very comfortable. There are two major dining areas, both seating 16+, one overlooking the setting sun. Villa il Santo is perfect if you want privacy from your fellow travelers, but also offers plenty of room to gather. Would be great for families as there is a studio apartment at the pool level that would be great for the kids.
But the most amazing part of the whole experience were the owners, the Cortis. They are very experienced in leasing villas and are an extremely helpful and charming couple. I felt as if I were family as soon as I met them. They will assist you in any activity you may want, with directions, suggestions for private tours and wonderful guides, places to eat and shop. Just ask and they will give you wonderful help and advice. I have stayed at another of their villas and the experience is always wonderful.
The villa is located between Florence and Siena, near a quaint village. There is easy access to the freeway to both cities. You definitely need a car to get around.
I will definitely be going again. I LOVE Villa il Santo!!
