The tuscan apartment is named to Donato de Bardi, better known as Donatello (1386-1466), Florentine sculptor of the Italian Renaissance. First floor
Donatello has the most history of all our rental accommodation at Sant' Antonio; centuries of monks and farmers have lived under this roof. The apartment is situated on the 1st floor, up a flight of steps that leads from the gardens and lawns of Sant' Antonio to a terrace overlooking the forests, olive groves and gardens. This accommodation has a shared terrace but a reserved outdoor table for 4 situated "al fresco" by the private entrance allowing you to enjoy morning coffee or a glass of Vino under the Tuscan stars.
Donatello is part of the main structure of the 800 year old ex monastery. The entrance leads into the spacious dining room, furnished with eighteenth century oak wood furniture and a dining table that comfortably seats 6 people.
Off the dining room is a kitchen made from wood with all the pots and pans required to create simple but delicate Tuscan country dishes. Those who enjoy cooking will cherish the splendid views from the kitchen window of the Valdichiana, and lakes and Umbria in the distance.
The dining room leads onto a second level, up a small flight of steps, into the lounge area and entrance of two colourfully decorated separate double bedrooms, each with a double orthopaedic mattresses and bed, with cotton bed and bathroom linen.
From the small long bedroom windows, built to keep the cool temperature indoors during the summer and the cold out during the winter, are magnificent views of the forests, olive groves and rolling hills.
The lounge is furnished with a very comfortable sofa set, well decorated ceramic stove, coffee table, satellite television and WIFI.
The one bathroom situated off the lounge consisting of a toilet, shower, sink and bidet has wonderful views of the country farm lands, great to enjoy whilst taking a shower!
The whole apartment is typical "old" Tuscan style décor with terracotta handmade bricks and exposed chestnut wooden beams.
