Client Reviews
Villa Il Santo is a wonderfully luxury, Tuscan villa located in the Chianti between Florence and Siena. Perched on the edge of a cliff it has stunning views from several areas of the villa and the garden. The entire property is fenced and surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.
To one side of the villa, on a lower level which is completely fenced, is the beautiful pool that looks out towards the incredible views down the valley and onto the rolling hills beyond. Next to the pool is a small whirlpool, which also enjoys the excellent views.
The villa is on several floors. The ground floor is large and spacious, providing plenty of room for all guests. It is composed of two living areas. The smaller of the two is furnished with several comfortable sofas and armchairs. Plenty of light is provided by the large arched picture windows that look out to the views.
The second lounge although far more spacious has less comfortable sofas and furnishings. It, like the rest of the villa, has the traditional Tuscan terracotta tiles on the floor and the ceiling is of whitewashed wooden beams and terracotta tiles. Although the room is bright there are only a few small windows. Arches over stone steps lead into the smaller living area. There is a guest toilet to one side of the floor.
This part of the villa has a twin bedroom which can be made into a double if requested when booking. The room has plenty of space and is furnished with an armchair, small table and a wardrobe. To one side is a small, private hall which leads to the bathroom with shower.
A glass corridor leads to the second building of the villa where there is the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is a large modern room which is well equipped and perfect to prepare meals with the excellent local produce. It includes a big double fridge with separate freezer compartment, 8 gas hobs, two ovens, wine fridge and dishwasher. A large glass door leads into the courtyard where there is a dining table shaded by a pergola.
The dining room is a tasteful mix of modern and traditional Tuscan decor. The original stone walls are exposed providing the room with a countryside feel while a modern touch is provided by the large wooden table surrounded by designer chairs. It seats comfortably 16 people. Completing the floor is a laundry room and a guest toilet.
Stairs lead to the upper floor where a corridor runs around an open floor that looks down onto the dining table. On this floor are two double bedrooms, with an en-suite bathroom with shower.
The two bedrooms are on either side of the stairs, providing each room with privacy. Each is furnished with a wardrobe and an armchair. The windows of both rooms overlook the gardens of the villa and the forests that surround it.
Going back into the main house there are stairs to the first floor. Here there is a lounge with fireplace. It is furnished with several armchairs and a triple sofa. Large arched windows look out onto the breathtaking Tuscan views.
There are three bedrooms on the floor. One is a twin room which can be made into a double if requested when booking. There is an en-suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom is a double, also with an en-suite bathroom with shower. The third bedroom is a large, spacious double bedroom. In one corner is a fireplace ideal for the cooler romantic nights. En-suite is a big bathroom with shower. All the bedrooms have a wardrobe.
The fourth bedroom in the main house is on the second floor. It is the master bedroom with a beautiful double bed, chest of drawers, a fireplace and a walk-in wardrobe. En-suite is a spacious bathroom which has a shower and a stone bathtub.
Next to the pool is a studio cottage. This is a single room with a comfortable double bed on one side, a double sofa to the other side and a small kitchen unit useful to prepare drinks, a snack or breakfast. En-suite is a bathroom with shower. The cottage is accessed from the garden, it does not have direct access to the main house.
The gardens of the villa are very well maintained with pretty lawns and local plants. There are several furnished terraces and outside sitting areas on different levels of the property, providing plenty of areas to relax in the shade or sun while enjoying the incredible views.


The double beds cannot be made into twins. The twin rooms can be made into doubles, this must be requested when booking.


Air-conditioning is included in the price, however all windows have mosquito screens.


Cleaning 3 times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays), change of bed linen every Saturday and towel changes on Tuesdays and Saturdays is provided.
There is a complimentary dinner on arrival day.
