Villa Santa is a typical historical Tuscan villa with an exclusive swimming pool. This independent villa, built in the second half of the 18th century, is the centre of a property of over 18 acres of woods and olive groves. It is on the last western slopes of Mount Albano, approximately 250mt. above sea level.Originally it was composed of two farm houses which have been joined together (maintaining however a certain independence if required).
The owners have carried out an accurate and rigorous renovation using only materials recovered from the surrounding area and period while ensuring a structure which respects the norms of bio-architecture. The living areas have been renovated with a careful eye for details - antique furniture and ornaments, antique doors, prints, paintings and Persian carpets can all be found - whilst the property also has every possible modern comfort.
The Ground floor of this enchanting property consists of a dining room seating 8, a lounge room with antique fire place, two well equipped kitchen's, two bathrooms with jacuzzi shower's, a lounge room, dining room, tv room and billiard room.
The second floor consists of 6 bedrooms: the Yellow bedroom, Green bedroom, Pink bedroom, Blue bedroom, Triple bedroom and Single bedroom.
For more than thirty years the owners have cultivated their passion for antiques and have furnished the villa with pieces acquired from antique dealers, auction sales or antique fairs. Some of the more particular pieces are the beautiful doors of the walk-in wardrobes in two of the bedrooms, the wooden 17th century plaque from a Florentine convent above the door of the larger loungeroom. Two of the bedrooms have Empire wardrobes and chests of drawers.The owners' taste is eclectic and includes some pieces of Liberty period furniture, for example, the French mirror in the green bathroom and the Sicilian chest of drawers in the yellow bedroom. There are two chairs and a table from Puccini's villa at Torre del Lago, as well as a late Empire sideboard of Calabrese origin.
There are many antique prints on the walls, including geographical maps of various countries, and in some of the bedrooms and lounge rooms there are chests of the C16th and C17th. Another remarkable piece is the billiard table, dating back to the early nineteen hundreds - in perfect condition. Many other pieces, more or less important, have all been chosen in the spirit of tracing our roots back to the past. Also in the garden one can find marble or stone capitals as well as old terrracotta Tuscan vases.
