Villa il Santo, Barberino Val d'Elsa - Florence

8 bedrooms 8 bathrooms 16 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

High on a Chianti hilltop, this luxurious eight-bedroom villa has lashings of space for 16 people to relax in serious style. The property is made up of two historic buildings - an old tower and neighbouring barn, now linked by a glass corridor - and no expense has been spared in converting them into a stunning, serene holiday home. In the streamlined interiors, old and new work harmoniously together. Terracotta-tiled floors and whitewashed and beamed ceilings sit happily alongside sleek, high-spec bathroom and kitchen fittings. Everywhere is bright, white and calm, with large arched windows allowing light to flood in and framing stunning views across a valley of vineyards.

The sense of spaciousness continues outside, where a series of flower-edged lawns and terraces on different levels almost encircle the house, and this is where you'll find your private pool, complete with adjoining hot tub. Back indoors, seven of the bedrooms are divided between the two main buildings, while the eighth is in a studio cottage near the pool - perfect for guests who like a bit of private space, yet with the ability to come together with the rest of the party and be sociable.

Our thoughts
The owners of Villa Il Santo clearly have a designer's eye - everything about this property is immaculate, from the beautifully styled interiors to the perfectly manicured gardens, with their fragrant lavender beds and profusion of pretty pink roses. Park yourself on one of the many sun loungers, soaking up the views over a glass of spumante, and it's highly unlikely you won't want to leave - but if you do decide to explore, Florence and Siena, with all their cultural attractions, are both about an hour's drive away.

Eight bedrooms. Eight bathrooms, all en-suite. The gardens and pool area are fenced.

The pool is located in the garden, surrounded by grass which is furnished with loungers. The water can be accessed by Roman steps. Pool Size: 5m x 10m, 1.4m deep, open from mid-May to mid-October, weather permitting.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket. By contacting your To Tuscany villa specialist in advance and providing them with a shopping list you will find the items in your villa on arrival. Please note that the service cannot be guaranteed with less than 48 hours notice before arrival.​
