The oratory dates originally from the 16th century, but in the latter part of the nineteenth century it became a country villa. Fortunately for us it was skillfully restored by the owners of the Chianti estate in which it stands. Using the traditional methods and some remarkable local artisans Sant’Antimo now stands transformed. Returned to its former splendour in harmony with its surroundings. The interiors are no longer simple but remarkably comfortable and probably a far cry from the 16th century interiors. Spacious, bright and airy it provides elegant and beautifully decorated accommodation that would suit anyone looking for peace and tranquillity.
The views from the garden, the windows and the loggia are magnificent, with the house positioned on a hillside to take full advantage of the wonderful panorama of the Chianti countryside and, on a clear day, as far as the towers of San Gimignano.
