Sant’Antonio is the oldest farm in the countryside around one of Tuscany’s most noteworthy towns, Montepulciano. Originally a 12th-century Franciscan monastery, Sant’ Antonio Country Resort enjoys an unparalleled location at the base of the ancient Etruscan sacred mountain Totona, allowing for cool breezes to keep the olives and farmland cool, even during the hottest hours of the day.
Today, Sant’Antonio is comprised of five buildings offering 13 completely renovated cottages, villas and apartments available for private rental. Four acres of leveled gardens surround the dwellings featuring a kilometer of bay leaf hedges, olives groves and centenarian trees. Spacious terra cotta terraces allow for privacy and sweeping views of the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno on one side of the property and the famous rolling hills of Tuscany on the other. The large swimming pool with Jacuzzi is constructed from travertine stone blending in with the staggering landscape.
Since Sant’Antonio is an historic estate, architectural changes are limited. That makes each villa, cottage and apartment unique. Owing to their special attributes each unit has been given the name of a great artist of the Renaissance, reminding visitors that they are in the cradle of history, just minutes from some of the greatest art and architecture in the world.
All of the residences are furnished to the utmost comfort and style. Most of the furniture is original to the 17th and 18th century. The orthopedic mattresses are covered in linens made from the highest quality Egyptian cotton. In the kitchen, guests will find Italian china and German cutlery as well as a supply of local Capoverso wines, water, beer and soft drinks. Each unit also has a satellite television.
Every detail has been taken care of in order to give guests the most authentic Tuscan experience possible. Even the parking is situated underground so as not to disrupt views of the stunning Tuscan landscape! Depending which one you choose, Sant’ Antonio’s affordable rentals can accommodate between two and six guests. Prices start at 500 euros per week in the low season and 720 euros weekly during the high season.
