An Enchanting Hotel Is for Sale in the Romantic Tuscan Countryside
While most people plan Valentine’s Day surprises like flowers or a staycation at a local hotel, the uber-wealthy may roll a bit differently. For an over-the-top gesture, some could even gift an entire hotel. A hopeless romantic with deep pockets doesn’t have to look far for the perfect property in that case. This historic hotel for sale in Tuscany ticks every box.
Tucked amongst cypress trees and rolling hills, the 20-key hotel is a honeymooner’s dream. It’s spread across multiple villas made of stone and encompasses Italian gardens, majestic views, and a remarkable history. Built in the late 1500s as a monastery, the main villa was a gift from the country to the monks for their help during a time of crisis. In the 18th century, the monks abandoned their abbey when the French army arrived in the area. Long left empty, a noble Florentine family finally dusted off this gem in 20th century.
Beautifully up-to-date for a five-star stay, it even has the structure’s original chapel (now deconsecrated) designed as an exquisite restaurant. The main villa spans 19,583-square-feet, offering 16 bedrooms and 26 bathrooms, with the most enticing suite up in the fairytale tower. The 2,023-square-foot guest house has a quaint four bedrooms and four baths.
Sitting near the medieval town of San Gimignano, a postcard could never do this spot justice. It has all the makings of a romance novel setting, from the dreamy grounds to the art-filled spaces. For those who can’t drop €13 million (approximately $15.7 million) on the property, it could one day supply the Italian resort getaway of your Pinterest board dreams. Alexa, play Under the Tuscan Sun.
