You Will Love Villa Il Santo!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 adults and 2 kids stayed at this beautiful villa for a week in June and every single person in our group loved everything about this villa. We started planning the trip nearly a year in advance, and Annagloria was a huge help. She responded quickly to every email and helped us schedule tours, wine tastings, and drivers for the week. When we arrived, we could not believe how beautiful and spacious the villa and grounds were. As gorgeous as the pictures are, they do not do this property justice. The furnishings and décor are truly spectacular and the views over the valley toward San Gimignano from the pool and all the many outdoor seating areas are unbelievable. The villa is also very conveniently located, as we could make easy day trips to the surrounding hill towns and wineries. There are many beautiful properties in Tuscany, but for us what set this one apart were the owners, Annagloria and Enzo. They were friendly and helpful in every way -- from stocking the wine cooler with their own (delicious) wine available for purchase at an incredibly reasonable price, to recommending and making reservations for us at wonderful, small local restaurants, to arranging a magical concert and dinner in an historic nearby church just for their friends and villa renters, to helping us plan a dinner and birthday celebration on the last night with a chef who cooked and served a multi-course dinner for us at the villa. And speaking of chefs, the price for the villa includes a first-night dinner cooked by a wonderful chef, Rosanna. We enjoyed her, and her cooking, so much that we hired her to give us cooking lessons in the villa a few nights later. If you have a chance to do this, we highly recommend it! This week in Tuscany was the highlight of our 3-week trip to Italy, and we cannot wait to come back!
