About Santo Stefano
Saint Stephen is the patron saint of masons. So the villa that bears his name should be built on very firm foundations. His benevolent protection and grace do indeed seem to suffuse Santo Stefano. This expansive villa was purposely designed to host big family reunions and gatherings of friends. It’s the perfect place to celebrate together in style.
Part of a sprawling country estate, it guarantees complete privacy for your special holiday. With rolling hills, cypress trees and olive groves enclosing you it’s hard to believe that the cultural riches that draw the sightseers to Florence, Pisa and Siena are only a fairly short drive away.
As you approach the villa through ornate gates you pass immaculately kept gardens contain flower beds spilling luxuriantly over. A pool spans the length of the grand property, with the endless Tuscan skies reflected in its calm surface. Sun loungers and extravagant outdoor dining spaces set the scene for the sumptuous interior.
11 air-conditioned bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, are carefully arranged in this spacious villa so everyone enjoys their own space. The living and dining spaces range from the cosy to the formal, but all have real charm. The villa comprises a main building and two independent apartments, accessed through external staircases.
As you enjoy your celebrations at Santo Stefano get underway, do remember that Stephen is also the patron saint of headaches. So do go easy on the Brunello!
