Villa San Martino, Tuscany

Why stay in Villa San Martino apartments?

San Martino Tuscany, is a tiny hamlet. Our property is at the lower side facing the hills and the lovely Niccone valley. It is easily reached by a tarmac country road. The views of the valley and the Tuscany hills towards Cortona are quite splendid and the setting is quiet and undisturbed.

The five holiday rental apartments are in two buildings, a house (3 apartments) and former barn (2 apartments) with the swimming pool area between them. The former farmhouse has been lovingly converted into three comfortable self contained  holiday apartments. Because of the sloping hillside site, each has ground level access. The restored barn is a short distance away and is now two spacious holiday apartments with a large shared loggia or terrace at the entrance. There is also a small guest restaurant on the end of this building (the barn).

All these self catering holiday apartments are all tastefully furnished and well provided with equipment. The apartments have satellite TV (Italian service with some English channels); dishwashers and working fireplaces. There is a separate laundry room.
