Set in over 60 acres of spectacular mature grounds, with umbrella pines, cedars, elms, cypress, and enchanting pathways for strolling, Villa il Principe is a beautifully designed and wonderfully imposing late 18th century estate with a history of being a gathering point for family and friends from all over Italy. Set in rolling countryside, on the edge of both the panoramic delights of Southern Tuscany, its Val d'Orcia and the intrigues of Umbria, the villa is surrounded by historic towns and villages. The 15th century architectural gem of Pienza, also noted for its pecorino cheese farms, sits close by, as do the fine wine towns of Montalcino, famous for its Brunello wines, and Montepulciano, of Vino Nobile fame. This area of Tuscany is known and appreciated for its food, prepared by locals with passion and desire to share it with their visitors! The property has been restored by Astrid Schiller Wirth, well known for her design of the Hassler Hotel in Rome. Her inspiration and unique style have created sumptuous interiors with cosy bedrooms, elegant reception rooms and a fabulous modern kitchen. The pieces of furniture created especially for the villa are unique and beautiful. The setting of the different rooms, with the living areas on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the first floor, makes this villa very enjoyable both for couples and also families with children who may want that little bit of privacy.


The villa has been finished to an exemplary standard throughout, with comfortable bedrooms, quality linens and en suite bathrooms with classic-contemporary finishes. The outdoors offer shaded al fresco spaces and a few steps away from the villa, the swimming pool, equipped by a bar corner, offers fantastic escape time thanks to a very cosy and unique four-poster bed, ideal for resting during the hot days of the Tuscan summers… and for the more active ones, water bikes are available by the pool.

Objective Advice Our sole aim is to match the right client with the right property.

The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more.  And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites could expose the user to fraud. The City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, report that in 2016, fraudsters stole £7.2 million from 5,826 unsuspecting travellers via online scams. Why risk it?

*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
