This ancient mansion — dating back to the XVI century and recently renewed — combines artistic and architectural features of typically Tuscan mansions, offering a unique and magic atmosphere in the hilly landscape of Chianti. Set among vineyards and olive groves, Villa San Filippo was built by enlargement of a stately home of an aristocratic Florentine family of the sixteenth century. It was enlarged in subsequent centuries by Baroncelli Family and then by Costagli Family, which they equipped with a factory body symmetrical, giving it a characteristic twin shape in the surrounding landscape. Still today, with its more than 400 years of history, Villa San Filippo offers to its guests moments of relaxation and tranquility and it's the ideal location to organize any kind of event. Vineyards, olive groves, fields and cypresses are the natural and romantic background of Villa San Filippo, where it is possible to appreciate wonderful sunsets on charming Tuscan hills. The mansion has three panoramic swimming pools with different levels, where its guests can relax tasting typical products belonging to Tuscan tradition. Villa San Filippo, titled property in the countryside situated in Chianti hills between Florence and Siena, offers its guests refined rooms and suites, where furniture and decorations recall the Tuscan tradition dating back to the beginning of the XVIII century. Villa San Filippo, using its natural resources, is proud of its ”zero kilometres“ production of olive oil and Chianti wine. The Medieval village of Barberino Val d'Elsa is situated along the ancient Via Cassia, a Roman street which connected Rome to Florence. Walking through the ancient streets of the village, surrounded by a landscape of rare beauty, tourists can appreciate the Cathedral and the Priori Palace. This place was a crossing point for pilgrims, coming from all over Europe and heading to Rome. Already before 1000 AD, Colle Val d'Elsa was an important transition point. Also commercial and handcraft activities have an amazing history: in the village there was first the production of fine paper, which have been replaced at the beginning of the XIX century by new glass industries. Colle Val d'Elsa, due to the importance of glass productions, was called ”The Bohemia in Italy“. Nowadays the production is mainly focused on crystal. From Villa San Filippo it is easy to reach cities like Florence and Siena, famous all over the world for their art and culture, and many other famous cities and villages, like San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza, with their famous artworks, squares, shops and luxury boutiques.
