When the mist covers Val d'Elsa, Santo Stefano always rises as an island from a whitish sea. Arriving from Montaione, after the rugged, bare, desolate, spectacular clays of Collinella, Poggio Bruscolo and Broto A 'Leoni, you are amazed, because there the landscape suddenly changes, showing olive groves, vineyards, and woods down the Orlo valley. Thanks to the great passion of daring entrepreneurs and as a result of the developed tourist activity, this beautiful corner of Tuscany has not been forgotten: "here you find peace, land always cultivated and never corrupted, plenty of sun."

The territory is located it the municipality of Montaione (Florence), an important tourist centre of Val d'Elsa, just 50 km from Florence and not far from San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Volterra and San Miniato; it extends for an area of approximately 500 hectares and gathers many farms with holdings (ex. farmhouses), ponds, large wooded areas, alternating landscapes with vineyards, olive groves and rows of cypress trees and that are suddenly interrupted by the harsh, bare and "spectacular hills of clay" that form the background of this (to find /out of the ordinary destinations) destination.


HistoryThe castle of Santo Stefano with Borgo and Pieve is among those mentioned in the eleventh century. A fortified castle with city walls on a natural tuff spur, belonging to the district of San Miniato and subject to Florence in 1369. The origins of the settlement, in all probability, are to be dated further back to very ancient times, even to Etruscan and Roman age, periods to which the archeological finds date back and that are still visible in the archaeological site to the top of the hill of Santo Stefano. 

Different types of stay for guests! "in your house the others are guests, in Santo Stefano the others are your family"

Entering these walls is like opening a precious box: evocative rooms and warm atmosphere; the promise of an experience rich in emotions ”After a complex and careful restoration program, the gradual restoration of these old farmhouses in full obedience of the best Tuscan tradition was carried out. Santo Stefano has become a unique and sophisticated destination for accommodation in time.

Refurbishment has been made in detail, thanks to the use of precious materials such as Tuscan terracotta tiles, ceilings with wooden beams and flat tiles, and natural stone, the faithful reconstruction of windows and doors made of cedar wood, the large masonry fireplaces. 
Each farmhouse has been designed for the interiors in an original and different way, highlighting the features for each of them and creating a different range of accommodation, but always with a chic and cozy mood, without forgetting the focus on comfort and services. From interiors inspired by forest and nature we pass to interiors in Tuscan style, ending up with more modern solutions inspired by contemporary design. An extreme attention to detail features any setting.

A particular attention has been paid to the kitchen area, recalling feelings from the past, the kitchen as the heart of home, and where the guest cannot escape from the pleasure of good food and an invitation to dabble in the culinary art.

Activities In this beautiful natural setting you can ride or explore the territory following itineraries for hiking, walking and biking.
