Overview

This stunning period palazzo, once home to Canova, the neoclassical sculptor, is set in San Gemini, a lively, charming and very historic village high in the hills just south of Todi. Recently renovated and updated, Santi Terzi has emerged as a magnificent yet cheerful private villa in which the original architectural elements, including high ceilings and beautiful stonework, are set off by tasteful and comfortable furnishings. Air-conditioned bedrooms, three sitting rooms and a choice of dining areas and kitchens provide plenty of space for a large group - so much space, in fact, that the palazzo was dubbed 'an Italian Hogwarts' by the Sunday Times. There are breathtaking views from every window in the palazzo as well as from the stone terrace around the colonnaded swimming pool, but the best view of all is from the open tower, accessed by a trapdoor. This area, and the village itself, are full of references to an extraordinarily rich history that spans the Roman, medieval and Renaissance eras. Festivals are held here throughout the year, but the high point is the October harvest.

Clients reviews

The bedrooms were apart from each other. We were 4 couples renting the house together so we had some privacy while being together. We opted for breakfast served daily and it made the vacation a true vacation for all of us. We had excellent weather and were able to enjoy sitting by the pool. It was lovely to be surrounded by such beautiful furnishings and art work in the house. The woman who served our breakfast daily was so warm and inviting. She did a terrific job of breakfast. She also gave us info on things going on in the village. We did some day trips to neighbouring villages and she was able to give us some feedback on those as well. Our dinner was provided by a different woman who was delightful and food delicious. TN Service was great. It was easy to navigate the payment procedures. I would recommend the service to others.

Love the location in San Gemini. Quaint, not touristy, but friendly and easy to walk to places. Cook, cooking classes right in town are great. Villa is spacious with amazing views. John was very helpful. I wanted a villa in a town with places to walk to such as restaurants, this had been wonderful experience

Everything about our stay in Santi Terzi was perfect - courteous and efficient booking, wonderful comfortable villa, charming and friendly staff and all this in a delightful unspoilt village. What more could you ask for? We have now booked 4 villas through Tuscany Now and all the bookings have been handled with courtesy and efficiency. We have never experienced any problems with our bookings and all the villas have exceeded our expectations. I have recommended Tuscany Now to many friends as a trustworthy and efficient organisation with an excellent product.

This was our second stay at Santi Terzi, our first eight years ago. We loved it then and loved it this trip as well. It is beautiful, extremely well-maintained and wonderfully comfortable for lots of people. The village of San Gemini is quaint and not touristy whatsoever which is a plus in our eyes. Virtually no one speaks English so it is a fun opportunity to learn a little Italian as well as improve your sign language skills. We definitely give Santi Terzi a five as a good value. From the size of the rooms, to the well-equipped kitchen, to satellite TV, wireless Internet, beautiful and functional fireplaces, plenty of bathrooms, a lovely pool, and the house is a beautiful setting for a large group of people. Absolutely a 5 for local services. The owner, Michael, was extremely helpful and went out of his way to meet any special requests we had while staying at Santi Terzi.

The villa was very spacious and easily accommodated our large group. There were multiple areas for group gatherings, as well as plenty of private space. The meals prepared by the cook were exceptionally good, definitely restaurant quality. </br> K.LaRocque 2011

Santi Terzi is incredibly spacious. It is beautifully integrated with the town (just steps away). Paola is a wonderful caretaker - extremely hard working, patient and caring. The owner was very thoughtful - calling to check on us during our stay.

The palazzo was amazing and everything the book and online showed but it was even better in person. It was absolutely perfect for our weddingspacious and so much room for all the guests and no one felt cramped. The grounds and views were something out of a storybook.

We are returners and were worried in case it didn't match our expectations again - but it was even better than we remembered. It is palatial yet homely and the amount of space allows you to mingle or have some quiet time alone.

The rooms were large and airy and very comfortably furnished. The atmosphere was preserved although there were enough mod cons for comfort. There was masses of reading matter for all the family and board games for all ages. All you need at Santi Terzi is Michele, he told us where we should go and we were never disapointed. He is a great host!
