“The Most Perfect Tuscan Experience!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

Such a wonderful Villa with the most breathtaking views. Anna Gloria and Enzo are wonderful hosts with a wealth of information regarding the area. They suggested perfect spots to eat, shop and see. Villa il Santo was well stocked so we did not have rush to the market upon arrival. The wine fridge filled with good wine at a good price. A lovely restaurant within an easy stroll from the Villa. The kitchen was such a joy to cook in but for the times when we were too tired / lazy to cook, they had a wonderful woman named Rosanna cook scrumptious Italian meals. Thank you Anna Gloria and Enzo for your hospitality and your attention to every detail. We hope to see you again but this time in the autumn so we can watch the olives being harvested and go truffle hunting with you. By the way, thank you for the olive oil...each time we have it, we can't help but remember our Most Perfect Tuscan Experience!

“Superb villa, sublime views, gracious hosts”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Beautifully appointed villa in peaceful location overlooking the magnificent Tuscan countryside. Numerous indoor and outdoor entertaining areas and securely fenced pool in a spacious garden setting. Vistas of San Gimignano in the distance. We were a group of 16, including children, and yet were always able to find a quiet place of solitude within the premises. The fantastic kitchen and amenities made self-catering easy and we also enjoyed the delicious cuisine prepared by the cook the hosts arranged for us for several meals.

Liked best: location and the property
Liked least: only minor complaint is the number of bees/hornets by the pool - would suggest moving the rose bushes along the perimeter fence would solve that problem. As a result we didn't use the pool as much as we would like to have.

“Wonderful villa getaway in the heart of Chianti region!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Upscale villa with breathtaking scenic view of Chianti valley. Modern decor with spacious rooms welcome travelers to a week of relaxation with family and friends. Perfect location for day trips to San Gimignano, Florence, Siena, Pisa, etc! Villa is very close to wonderful wineries and the owners make their own wine and olive oil!! Lovely and charming owners take care in meeting guests on arrival, making reservations for tours and restaurants. Spacious dining table lends itself to wonderful dinners in-a must request Chef Leonardo for Italian cuisine at its finest, perfect blend of local delicacies and delicious traditional meals! We had 16 people in our group and were all very pleased and comfortable during our stay!
