Country home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is as beautiful as the pictures and home and garden immaculately kept. If you are looking to experience the small towns, vineyards and food of Tuscany in a most quiet and congenial environment, this could not disappoint. Nestled between Florence and Siena, there is no shortage of great day trips. If you want a city, this is not it, but it was what we wanted. Panzano a darling town, Greve for shopping, Chianti vintners every kilometer. Home also fully equipped with what you need to cook and wash. Too cold for us to swim in September, but the pool still sparkling clean. Saw wolf, fox and deer in the environs. Grazie to Elisabetta and Paola.

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The sisters who manage the property take great pride in their place and this is evident with every detail from how clean and comfortable the place was to how they treated my family on our arrival and departure. This place was the ideal oasis after a busy few days in Rome. It cost a bit more per night than other places we stayed but we definitely got what we pay for! We wish we stayed more than 5 nights as we wanted longer to explore the area and enjoy the amenities of the place so next time will be a longer stay! Thank you for making our holiday so special.

Comfortable and pleasant stay in the Chianti countryside

  • 4 of 5

House was been renovated and rented out for vacation rentals since 2010 (as noted by the guest book). Stayed here for 6 nights with my family and a family friend. The house is very comfortable with a spacious living room. The newly renovated kitchen flows into the living room. Dishwasher, gas stove, fridge and washing machine also worked well. Lots of natural light spills in from the large windows.

Two of the bedrooms have a exterior door with direct access to the pool. Heating was provided during certain hours as this was autumn and the evenings were cooler. Pictures in the VRBO accurately reflex the vacation home.

Able to cook most meals in this kitchen easily and even had a cooking lesson from a professional chef in this house.

Was able to do many day trips to various local wineries and sites such as Volterra and San Gimignano. They were able to provide a baby cot and high chair too.

Weather was too cool to use the pool but it was maintained impeccably as were the grounds. Quiet and restful stay for the end of our vacation in Italy.

Villa San Martino - A gorgeous retreat in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

Villa San Martino is stunning, inside and out! Located five minutes from the delightful little town of Panzano, this Tuscan villa is beautifully appointed, from the kitchen to the living spaces to the bedrooms. Everything you need to be able to cook your meals is provided in the beautiful kitchen, if you choose to do so. There is a conveniently located Co-op in Panzano, as well as another Co-op that is larger and just a bit farther away, in Greve in Chianti. A beautiful pool is the centerpiece of a lovely yard and the villa is surrounded by beautiful trees on all sides, making it a private retreat. An outdoor terrace with comfortable furniture allows you to sit outside overlooking the pool and enjoying the outdoors. Sisters Paola and Elisabetta are gracious and helpful and have created a charming, inviting home. Two bedrooms contain double beds, a third has two twin beds, and the two bathrooms are comfortable and spacious, with walk-in, stall showers in each. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa San Martino!

About Elisabetta

Hello I am Irene and I will respond to requests for reservations for Villa San Martino.

The owners, Elizabeth and Paola Navarrini, have seen this house built by his father, then doctor in the area, who he managed to get this piece of land of 6000m² and woods.

He finished building the villa in 1965. Since then, the family has arranged for their holidays this little paradise , to get away from frenetic and noisy city, ceremonial feasts to celebrate the marriage of daughters and grandchildren, and all occasions for inviting friends and family and enjoy together an absolute peace and quiet that offers this elegant Villa.

I live Florence and I work in Greve in Chianti in a company that produces wine and olive oil and I am willing to give info and let you know and checking availability.

Elisabetta and Paola, will welcome you for checking-in at your arrival (I remember always the time to be agreed prior to check-in) they will show the functionality of the house and all the services available.

Elisabetta purchased this villa in 1964

Why Elisabetta chose Greve in Chianti

The owners rent the villa for several years mainly to families , as very well suited to groups and those still looking for a place full of peace and only the sound of nature , to retreat from a hot day spent strolling in the city of Florence or Siena and if so agreed , enjoy all the comforts of a cottage built entirely on the ground floor , with a very large garden and a swimming pool with a wonderful landscape around .

What makes this villa unique

The private pool has got steps for enter and with one hand over and a ladder .

The Terrace , the entrance to the living room , open with stone columns and wooden beams is marvelous .

Two bedrooms have direct access to the garden via long terrace communicating , also covered .

As you enter there is a large space , the living room talking with the other dining room and the kitchen . Large open plan living . Two large fireplaces .

Comfortable , cozy , functional and bright .
