This was our second stay at Sant'Ilario and we were not let down. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. Service and hospitality was perfect. We also had dinner at the new restaurant at the estate, we can recommend it.

We spent a week at Tenuta Sant’ilario and genuinely cannot recommend it highly enough. The farmhouse itself is beautiful, our room was spacious and nicely decorated and the communal outside area where breakfast was served was gorgeous. The only minor improvement would be a bath as there was only a small shower in the bathroom. The pool area is a...

We had a lovely time staying at this marvelous B&B. Especially enjoyed the nice clean rooms, fantastic design and the pool area.

What a fantastic setting. The owners were so helpful when I had injured my ankle on a walking holiday, rather than let us pay a small fortune to a taxi driver from san gimignano to drive all the way from there and take us up to the town for dinner then wait and drive us back to the hotel, they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spending holidays within the walls of the Tenuta Sant'Ilario is like opening a treasure chest: evocative ambience, refined details, warm atmosphere and nice welcoming ....The Estate is surrounded by a 60-hectare private property on the hills of Chianti, close to the most important art cities such as Florence, San Gimignano, Siena and Volterra.Tenuta Sant'Ilario offers a wide range of experiences: a relaxing holiday, a romantic honeymoon, a gastronomic tour or simply the place for your free time, strategic starting point for a visit to the beautiful art cities of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano.Let yourself go in the beautiful surroundings of the Estate that each season offers different colours and experiences. You can see the colours of dark brown or deep red or ochre in the autumn and the bright green in spring time. Along the routes through the estate you can see the most typical Tuscan landscapes; olive groves and vineyards surrounding our villas and apartments and it is also possible to enjoy wonderful walks in the woods of oak trees and ancient elm trees as far as the lake where the roe deer and the deer love stay dwelling. Walking as far as the bottom of the valley you can see creeks and small waterfalls formed by the streams surrounding the property. The Estate boasts the most modern facilities while maintaining its historic atmosphere.Inside the property, three independent villas, six apartments and the rooms have breathtaking views over the olive groves and vineyards of the property and the forest that is home for pheasants, roe-deer and wild boar.The main villa, a former convent dating back to the twelfth century, has standard and superior rooms, and the breakfast room, where on reservation we can serve breakfast with milk, coffee, cappuccino, fruit juices, cheese and sliced cold meats, croissants, cakes and more. If the guests prefer, breakfast can be served directly to their apartment and enjoyed in perfect privacy.The Internet Wi-Fi connection is also available at the reception and in the rooms B&B. ... more   less

“Call and ask for directions! if you don't call at least set your GPS to the city: "Montaione", The place is not in Gambassi. How ever if you do end up in Gambassi...and it's located at your left side - turn right from the main road about 20 meters after Gambassi's main entrance - where the church is. and then go on with the road- not paved, not for sport's cars! you will cross a small river (!) and then go up the hill. where the mirror is (so you'll know if any other cars are coming) turn right to the parking lot.”
