Conveniently located on edge of a wonderful Tuscan village, yet surrounded by gardens to ensure your privacy. The English designer/owner has created a Zen like atmosphere in her extensive restoration of a former school. Walk to town, nearby Spa and natural hot water springs. Attentive staff. All rooms are on one floor centered around an exquisite outdoor living area with large heated swimming pool and picturesque views of the Val d'Orcia.
This extraordinary beautiful stretch of Italy sits between Rome and Florence with open, breathtaking views of the Mount Amiata, the unchanged profiles of the hills that we admire in the old master Tuscan paintings. Within walking distance from the villa is the small village of San Casciano dei Bagni. With just under 2,000 residents, it is small enough to have quaint characteristic charm and large enough to offer charming shops and restaurants, including a coffee bar, butcher, baker and pastry shop. A five minute walk from your villa and you are in the town's storybook piazza where you can sit and people watch among an incredible backdrop of the Val d'Orcia scenery. The famous Fonte Verde Spa is located here as well and will welcome you for a day or even a half day of pampering.
The old Roman spa - from which the village derives its name has just been refurbished offering eight natural hot water pools, beauty and health treatments. There are superb quality wine tastings in the village and nearby cities produce super Tuscan Brunello di Montalcino and Montepulciano wines, famous throughout the world. But the real secret beauty lies in the old Roman roads with no traffic, taking you to the medieval magical towns, full of visual beauty.
Staying at Il Collegio is the ideal choice for those looking at alternative places offering a sophisticated way of life and real comforts.
There is a houseman that looks after the villa, garden and pool and an excellent cook will prepare your meals on request. You will experience Tuscan cuisine at its best! Cooking classes can also be arranged at the villa. Extra help with cars and drivers can be arranged on demand.
On request we provide: Masseurs and trainers: from Yoga to Pilates, Reiki and Shiatsu.
Designers' outlets from Prada and Gucci to Dolce Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli are a short drive away.
The interior design is impeccable: crisp white sheets, piles of white towels in the bathrooms, comfortable specially designed sofas, long wonderful tables to eat or work, Lighting on dimmers everywhere and a lot of lanterns to light up already splendorous starry nights.

Resident Staff resides at the villa. The swimming pool is close to the house so small children need to be attended to at all times. Because you are on the edge of town, there is some noise.
