users 4 bed 4 bath 1

Surrounded by nature and creativity, the ultimate slow-living retreat. 

Prices: from € 235 incl. breakfast 

Organic B&B and plant-based restaurant in Montepulciano, Tuscany. Here, everything is unique as the result of the endless creation of Karin and Antonio. I have been here many times and it is a magical place!

There are four large guest rooms in the eighteenth-century villa. From all the rooms you can enjoy a 180° on the Val di Chiana countryside and the historical town of Montepulciano. In the guesthouse, breakfast is served at the table with organic products sourced or farmed locally – the five-hectare farm counts olive oil, fresh vegetables, and fruits among its produce. The plant-based vegetarian restaurant offers dishes only with fresh, seasonal, and local products.

From sleeping to eating, to the quality of furnishings and garden care, everything is designed to allow the mind and body to regain their balance and calm. 


The Suites

It’s a place to discover, to experience, to taste. It is strongly linked to nature and to the senses and therefore it is very different from the classic hotel experience. 

All the rooms are very spacious, flooded with light, and entirely decorated by Karin. One of our first aims is to hold the environmental impact as low as possible and live in harmony with Mother Nature.

San Martino offers a lot of inspiring, beautiful places inside and outside. It is a home away from home

There are 3 x large Suites, they can host a maximum 4 people with two extra beds. Children until 6 years old can stay for free.

There are two Junior Suites, and one of those has a private terrace with a beautiful view of the historical city of Montepulciano.

There also is a Family Suite (70sqm) with two separate bedrooms and a living room and bathroom on the ground floor. It can host a maximum of 4 people.

All of them offer a 180° view of the Tuscany hills and the historical town of Montepulciano, but each one is unique with its distinctive handcraft style and interior design. All rooms have a private bathroom with shower – King-size bed (220 cm) with cotton non-allergenic futon mattress – Cotton and millet pillows – Bedlinen made of high-quality natural materials – Air conditioning.

*The suites have no TV and no mini-fridge.
