Description from manager

Salvia is set in a beautiful countryside location close to the town of Barberino Val d'Elsa. Originally built in the year 1000AD, Salvia has undergone a lengthy and meticulously conceived restoration and now provides all the comforts for a memorable and truly unforgettable stay.

This gorgeous villa is composed of two separate buildings.

The original tower has been completely restored utilizing the old brick floors and wooden ceilings and within, has been beautifully appointed with the latest modern facilities.

Similarly, the adjacent old hay barn has been completely restored showcasing the best of contemporary Italian design, with a very cool, clean look.

A typically Italian garden adorned with roses, jasmine and indigenous plants and flowers offers guests different areas to relax in with complete privacy.

The infinity swimming pool with its annexed Jacuzzi overlooks the amazing Chianti countryside. Vineyards changing colours with the seasons and the silhouetted towers of the San Gimignano skyline on the horizon, guarantee complete relaxation under the Tuscan sun.

The staff of the villa can provide arrangements for many activities and interests. Cycling through the countryside is sublime, no matter the season. Golfing greens are nearby and tee-off times are easily booked. There are Italian recipes to learn and cooking classes can be organized.

Also wine tastings and visits to vineyards can be planned.

The villa owner live about a 10 minute drive from the villa, and they are always pleased to assist guests with their tours, sightseeing, museum bookings, wine tasting, restaurant selection and shopping, focusing on making guests’ holidays a delightful experience.
