“Best. Vacation. Ever.”

This villa is beyond lovely - crazy good views, beautifully updated interior, numerous and beautiful gathering spots, including two over-sized dining tables perfect for a large group, yet providing intimate space. The beds are super comfy, and the renovation is very well thought out. Perfect location, centrally located to anywhere you might want to go in Tuscany. You will need a car! The owners are totally on the ball, available for all questions and concerns, and VERY responsive. One thing to know about the pool/"hot" tub - neither is heated. You'll be so busy with everything else you won't notice or miss it, but it would have been nice to sit in a hot tub and look out over the glorious view. I would also suggest that new bed pillows be obtained. But these are minor comments. I would absolutely stay again, and thank Enzo and Annagloria for helping us achieve a trip of a lifetime.

“Heavenly”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Villa Il Santo is the quintessential Tuscan getaway. The villa has been beautifully restored yet still maintains much of its old-world charm. There's an instant sense of calm that one feels once you enter the villa. Enzo and his family took care of our every need and we loved the meals cooked by Rosanna - a bonafide Italian nonna! Be sure to try the wines and olive oil produced by Enzo; all are delicious!

“Magical”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A stay here should be number one on your bucket list. This villa is stunning and yet very comfortable. We had 8 couples roaming the Tuscan Hills and at the end of the day came back to a relaxing time at the villa and a beautiful home cooked dinner by Rosa. Highly recommend
AnnaGloria can arrange most anything you would want to do, guides and tours very good.

A very special place.
We have many beautiful memories of the magnificent views, the tasteful furnished and maintained rooms, the delicious diners and houswines we enjoyed at the outdoor patio's, Annagloria and Enzo attending to our every needs. The villa is perfectly located for for visiting the many ancient towns in the area. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at villa il Santo, with our family and friends.
