San Savino is a XIV century farmhouse and chapel set in the heart of an immaculate nature reserve, affording beautiful views across endless woods, olive trees and green valleys. This used to be the church of the estate, until the ‘70ies the Carabba family and the farmers living on the estate would meet here for Sunday mass, which was followed by a market.

The house was completely restored in 2004 and refreshed in 2016. With immaculate furnishings in warm, rich colors, comfortable furniture, and en suite bedrooms, the villa has all the comforts of a modern home with the services of a 5-star resort.

A waist-high fireplace is a local feature which makes it easy to cook over the fire. The kitchen walls have been painted a stunning blue lime wash in the characteristic style of the old kitchens in peasant farms, as blue was supposed to keep the flies away in the summer. As you will see from the plan of the house two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms while two share a bathroom.

The garden, shaded by old oak trees, has been designed to blend in naturally with the surroundings. Climbing roses, hydrangea petiolaris, lavender, cystus, rosemary and honeysuckle mix well with the old oak and fruit trees. Meals can be taken under a pergola covered by wisteria, roses and grapevines. A 10 by 5 meter fenced pool is tucked away at the far end of the garden.
