Beautiful and expansive, fully staffed 20,800 sq. ft villa, sleeping up to 35 guests
Tuscany-Siena/San Gimignano Area Villa 35
Tranquillità is situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Siena and Florence. This villa, owned for centuries by an Italian Aristocratic Family, is encircled by spectacular gardens, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. Dating back to 1400, additional construction was added between 1700 - 1800. The whole structure was restored with loving care during 1996 - 1997.
The renovation provided every bedroom with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning in all the bedrooms and common areas.. The already spacious villa can be supplemented by several en-suite bedrooms of the same standard, but in separate buildings, to accommodate groups up to 35. There is no other villa for this number of people of such uniformly high standards for rent in Tuscany. It is a luxurious and extremely sophisticated dwelling.
We invite you to experience elegant evenings dining on gourmet food under the stars, lounge in the large public rooms with their beautiful fireplaces, and to nestle under the covers of one of the villa’s delightful bedrooms. Villa Collalto is the ultimate villa for those wishing to experience luxury at its finest!

"The villa was the perfect setting for our family holiday. The Villa is spectacular, the food by Chef Roberto and his staff is outrageous, the accommodations are luxurious and comfortable and the staff became like family immediately! Isabella, Matthew and Andrew tended to every need and want of our family of 25 which included 5 year old twins. Special attention to every detail was accomplished quietly behind the scenes and the results were amazing. We were pampered beyond compare!!! "
