Villa Torre Il Santo, strategically oriented at the top of one of the most perfectly situated Chianti hills, offers our guests stunning views of the Tuscan valleys and countryside beyond.

The infinity swimming pool with its annexed Jacuzzi, equipped with sunloungers and a massage table, overlooks the amazing Chianti countryside. Vineyards changing colors with the seasons, and the silhouetted towers of the San Gimignano skyline on the horizon, guarantee complete relaxation under the Tuscan sun. The villa is surrounded by a vast park with well kept lawns overlooking woods and the vineyards all around. Cozy sofas and chairs under a loggia or under the sun are the ideal place to get the most of the countryside while drinking a refreshing "aperitivo". Villa Torre il Santo boasts a barbecue and several lounge areas each with a breathtaking view, but having dinner under a covered pergola at sunset completes the holiday with a touch of magic.

Originally built around the XI century as a watch tower, Villa Torre Il Santo has undergone a lengthy and meticulously conceived restoration. This gorgeous villa, which has been beautifully appointed with the latest modern facilities, has all the comforts that one might want for a memorable and truly unforgettable holiday. Villa Torre il Santo is rented as one villa but is composed of two separate buildings, which are connected by a glass corridor.
