Villa San Luigi
San Luigi is a unique and historical Tuscan residence, providing spacious and luxuriously appointed accommodation for up to 14 guests, and is perfectly equipped for those who wish to enjoy the summer or winter in Southern Tuscany. Commissioned by the illustrious Chigi family and designed by the renown Sienese architect Baldassare Tommaso Peruzzi (1481 – 1536) the villa has been extended and enhanced over the centuries, and has recently undergone a complete restoration to create a contemporary country estate, whilst remaining faithful to the original design. Within the extensive grounds, you will find a spectacular travertine infinity edge pool, an outdoor kitchen and expansive terrace in addition to secluded places within the gardens where you can simply breathe in the fresh Tuscan air…. or enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sun set.
San Luigi sits proudly on a hilltop surveying the diverse Tuscan landscape: to the South, the summit of Mount Amiata and the hilltop town of Montalcino are clearly visible; the moon-scape of the Crete Senesi lies to the East with undulating fields and wooded hills to the West. On a clear day, from the highest point on the estate, the towers of Siena can be seen glistening in the sunlight.
Situated within the historical estate of Castelnuovo Tancredi (which dates as far back as 1315), San Luigi’s location is ideally positioned for you to experience the beauty, culture, wine and gastronomy of Southern Tuscany. The medieval walled-town of Buonconvento with its restaurants and bars, shops selling local produce as well as a supermarket and railway station, is a short seven minute drive.
Montalcino and its famous Brunello vineyards is just 15 minutes away, whilst Siena and the hilltop towns of Pienza and San Quirico d’Orcia, and the thermal baths at Bagno di Vignone are all accessible within 30 minutes.
