About Villa San Cristoforo
The patron saint of travellers ensures a peaceful stay in this exquisite villa in Tuscany. Set in a 16-acre estate, Villa San Cristoforo is located in the heart of the Chianti wine-producing area. Set among quiet, rural vineyards and olive groves, the villa is nonetheless just 20km from Florence.
Swim in the 18m infinity pool, be soothed by the outdoor hot tub or relax on the beautiful covered sitting and dining area. A pond, soccer field and tree house provide plenty for the kids to explore, and there’s the world-renowned Golf Club Ugolino and opportunities for horseriding available nearby.
Villa San Cristoforo has been fully restored. Modern luxuries now discretely add to its Tuscan farmhouse charms. The oven where the village’s bread was once baked is now a pizza oven in your restaurant-quality kitchen. Air-conditioning and under-floor heating keep everything cosy whatever the season.
Three buildings can comfortably house 14 people. The main villa has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and three communal rooms centred on reclaimed wood and terracotta tile fireplaces. An adjacent barn has been transformed into a two-bedroom, three-bathroom guesthouse with its own kitchen and living spaces. Floor to ceiling windows overlook the garden and open up to a terrace with a spacious dining table.
The estate produces its own wine and olive oil. There are chickens for breakfast eggs, an organic garden, fruit trees and abundant herbs growing. If you don’t cook up an al fresco feast in this luxury Tuscan villa, you probably never will.
