Villasanpaolo Spa Resort is situated 6.4km from the centre of San Gimignano and enjoys an ideal location surrounded by stunning scenery. The estate covers almost seven and a half acres and sitting in the middle of the garden, stands the beautiful villa which was converted into a noble residence at the end of the 19th century, and next to it is the ancient 'Orciaia' which was the place where the huge urns of oil were once stored, both now house some of the beautiful guestrooms. The Villasanpaolo continues to uphold the traditions of the land and produces a very high quality of extra-virgin olive oil. The new building 'Il Borgo' is surrounded by pretty olive groves and houses the reception, some guestrooms, the large spa centre (payable locally) with a heated indoor and outdoor pool and a gym, and the panoramic restaurant. A beautiful outdoor swimming pool with a spacious garden and bar area is situated in one of the prettiest spots in the estate and offers a place to relax while enjoying the magnificent view of the historical city.

About the location

San Gimignano is a remarkable medieval town and UNESCO World Heritage Site, set on a particularly high hilltop in the Tuscan countryside. This fortified marvel is the historic equivalent of a modern high-rise city, with steel skyscrapers replaced with dizzyingly high ancient towers, and noisy alleyways swapped for uneven cobbled lanes.

The town’s 14 towers are a fraction of the 72 that once stood, but the impact is still impressive, with almost every square and street watched over by these soaring monoliths. For those with a head for heights, the tower tops offer unrivalled panoramas of the town’s winding lanes and the beautiful surrounding countryside. The 14th-century Torre Grosse is the best of these, and offers spectacular views from more than 170 feet above the streets. For those wanting to immerse themselves in history, the wonderfully tranquil Rocca de Montestaffoli is a must. This crumbling structure was once a fortress and a convent, although now it offers an atmospheric wild garden and one modest tower, with surprisingly good views over the countryside. If you’re in the mood for shopping, make sure you look out for some of the artisan workshops hidden in the town’s lanes – local photography and handmade ceramics are just some of the wares available.

Tripadvisor review Jun 12 2024
Excellent facilities, staff and food. We had a great couple of days here. BUT don't come without a car. This is not a place where you can get to and from on public transport and there are no taxis...
