About the villa

Medieval towns, Maremma Natural Park and the shores of Monte Argentario are all within easy reach of this gorgeous old farmhouse, though its welcoming comfort and wonderful ambience make it tempting to just stay-put. Blissfully peaceful and beautifully restored, it is a relaxing haven of understated elegance, tucked away on a private estate, close to an imposing Castello. With splendid panoramic views, the villa stands in informal gardens, where a generously sized swimming pool is encircled by swathes of lavender and sword-leafed cactus plants. A broad terrace hems the length of the house, with a comfortable corner for sundowners and a chunky rustic table for leisurely lunches under pergola shade. Brimming with character, the villa’s interiors include big arches and brick vaulted ceilings; a large living room, flooded with light from four French windows; a well-equipped country kitchen with dining table; and six very spacious bedrooms, simply styled with fresh-toned fabrics, and rugs on cool tiled floors. The staff at Sant'Antonio are on hand to help make your stay as enjoyable and menorable as possible and offer a very flexible cook service (further details on request). The enchanting Sant’ Antonio is 3km from restaurants in Paganico, 25km from Grosseto, and 45km from Siena.

About the area

Chianti and South of Siena

Average weather

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.

But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
