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 Florence Area

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 .

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!

A fantastic property where we felt at home.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, well equiped, and beyond our expectations.

Mrs Paola is proud of her villa and we can see how much care she takes to welcome her guests.

We dream of going back or to discover another place like this one.

Our greatest thanks

Real charming house with terrible owners

  • 4 of 5

The house was just amazing, you had everything you needed, kitchen fully equipped which was a real fun.

You also have the herbs/ olive oil and even a coffee to use, so they do provide the basics, which is super convenient.

The house gave a feeling of very homey/ cozy place. The pool is just perfect although it's not heated.

We stayed in Sugust and no need for an AC! temperature is just right.

Location wise - amazing, the fact that it's 5 min drive from a COOP supermarket location also helps.

Panzano is the nearest village and it's just what we needed.

Internet is so - so, if you happen to come few of you, make sure, in advance, to get enough passwords ( as each device requires a different one).

This amazing experience was ruined in the last day when we checked out - the owners of the place ( two 60 years plus ladies) came to meet with us, they came 15 min before the actual hour we needed to leave ( 10 am).

When they saw that the house is still not ready ( as we were 4 adults and 4 young kids) they started to take photos of the place, shout in Italian, made everything theycan to make is very uncomfortable.

We indeed didn't prep well to leave on time but still they made us feel as if we ruined their place when we only needed 30 minutes to pack our things and organize the house.

They actually told us they do not wish to pay us back the deposit !

This is because the shits and blankets were not organized and the freege was still full with food, we also moved some beds to stand next to the walls ( as we have young kids).

They were really mad and rude, for no reason.

So if you do consider this place as an option,

The house is great, but please do set expectations with the owners on how they expect you to return the house at the last day.

Owner's Response: We are particularly affectionate to Villa St. Martino, our house to Panzano in Chianti built by our father, that we try to maintain with care and attention, also to the purpose of furnishing a comfortably setting to whom spends a period of vacation. Unfortunately the day of the check-out we have ascertained with sorrow that our guests over delaying the established time for check out , made an home environment where the chaos reigned, the disorder and, as it regards the kitchen, very dirty, contrarily to how much there would be expected to find within the rules of simply good manners of respect and education. We have also ascertained that, contrarily to the booking for 4 adults and 1 child, the house was busy with 6 adults and 4 children without communicating us any updating about it. This is seemed very incorrect there. Despite this above, the cautionary deposit of € 200 was not held. However we thank for the pleasant expressions with which our house has been described and this is what mostly interests us. P. and E. (terrible owners, two 60 years old plus ladies)

This was a charming farm house that was centrally located. The two sisters who owned the house were there to greet us, and were very helpful. The town of Penzano was just down the street and there we found a couple of good restaurants. The views in the area are spectacular. The directions to find the place were a bit sketchy, mainly due to English as their second language. But once we found it, everything was as stated in the listing.
