Sant' Antonio Country Resort
Luxury Villas, Holiday Houses and Apartments in Tuscany
Sant'Antonio Country Resort, originally a Franciscan Monastery dating back to the 12th century. Over the past 800 years the Monastery has experienced the odd transformation done by the monks and farmers who over the centuries lived and worked the land, however the beauty of the property still remains and has been treasured.
The Monastery consisting of farmland and forests, was deliberately built on the foot hill of an ancient Etruscan sacred mountain called Totona allowing for cool breezes to keep the olives and farmland cool, even during the hottest hours of the day.
Sant'Antonio Country Resort is divided into 5 separate buildings, surrounded by 4 hectares of gardens on different levels, over a kilometre of bay leaf hedges, olives groves and centenarian trees with spacious terra cotta terraces allowing for privacy and wonderful views of the Valdichiana Valley and Lake Trasimeno on one side of the property and the famous rolling hills of Tuscany on the other, allowing you to spend your vacation with us in total relaxation and to experience a real country life feeling in Tuscany.
All our villas, cottages and apartments are consequently totally different in size, shape and layout from one another, each one is unique.

For your privacy and tranquillity
At Sant' Antonio Country Resort, for your privacy, we have decided not to take any off street "walk in" bookings and have chosen to refrain from advertising our property or place sign posts on any roads or towns. A simple hand sculptured sign on an old travertine block with the words "SANT'ANTONIO" indicates that you have arrived at your destination.
