Overview

In its past, the villa was used as the country residence of several aristocratic Italian dynasties. It took two years for his current owner to painstakingly renovate the property, and finally bring it back to its former splendor, adding all the modern amenities. The imposing villa, with its elegant cypress-lined boulevard, offers an abundance of luxury: four floors of elegant refined interiors, tennis court, private wellness Spa with sauna, and private gym. When you combine the beauty of the land, the villa attentive staff and the unique characteristics of Il Cardinale, your vacation is sure to be memorable.

This Old-world style villa is ideal for large groups of friends or families looking for the perfect balance between tradition, quality and comfort. The interior spaces, as well as the grounds, are sprawling. The location is the perfect base from which to explore the best Tuscan landmarks and cultural highlights, and it is one of the top locations for food and wine lovers, being Siena, Montalcino, Pienza and the Brunello area nearby.
