A charming Resort situated in one of the most beautiful locations in Tuscany: San Gimignano, declared World Heritage by UNESCO.
The whole structure consists of various architectural solutions, from the oldest parts, which have been skilfully renovated, to the more modern central structure, set harmoniously and elegantly amidst nature.
In the middle of the garden, overlooking the towers of San Gimignano, stands the villa, built on the foundations of a 14th century cloistered convent which was converted into a noble country residence at the end of the 19th century.
Next to the beautiful villa is the ancient "Orciaia", the place where the huge urns of oil were once stored, and this too dates back to the late 19th century, when the old farm was famous for its olive oil.
Villasanpaolo continues to uphold this tradition today, producing very high quality extra virgin olive oil, with an acidity level close to zero.
The estate covers an area of about 3 hectares; an old and very pretty olive grove surrounds the newest, central structure, which houses the reception, rooms, restaurant, lounge areas and multipurpose rooms, as well as the SPA.
Villasanpaolo is an oasis set amongst age-old olive trees on the top of a hill overlooking the splendid valleys all around and enjoying a view which is unique in the world, the thousand year-old towers of San Gimignano.
It is just 5 km from the town and stands in a prestigious natural context, reserved and discreet, with all the latest technology and resources to offer maximum energy efficiency, much reduced emissions and the utmost respect for the environment.
A beautiful outdoor swimming pool with a spacious garden and bar area is situated in one of the prettiest spots, offering a place to relax while enjoying the magnificent view of the historical city of the 100 towers. All of this takes place in a territory which has always specialised in hospitality and courtesy.
Villasanpaolo is the ideal destination for those who desire top level but informal and relaxing accommodation devoted to wellbeing and characterised by good taste.
To make your stay unique and unforgettable, we place the following services and facilities at your disposal:
- "Irispa benessere", 1000 square metres of pure wellbeing, relaxation, beauty and pampering, where the most relaxing massages and most exclusive and effective treatments await you.
- "Lampolla" restaurant, where age-old tradition combines with genuine local produce, elegance and informality.
Tuscan art – the Villasanpaolo Resort is tastefully and discreetly embellished with numerous works by Tuscan artists from the modernist movement, dating from the late 60's to the end of the 70's.
The park inside regularly hosts sculpture and ceramic art exhibitions, with unique works by local artists.
