Save to favouritesPrintMailRelais San PietroWhen Luigi Protti retired from industrial Milan to Tuscany, he set out to find ďa beautiful house in a quiet place, for the relaxĒ, to share with others. He found the perfect spot: on the crown of a steep hill, a tumble-down farm overlooking woodland and olive groves. From the upper floors, you could even see Castiglion Fiorentino - his wife's home town. The 17th-century farm, with its priests' house and stables, has since been restored to offer 10 comfortable [rooms:IT048:rooms] and a pool-with-a-view. Still home to the Protti family, who live upstairs, itís all brick arches, white-wash, terracotta and old timbers - traditional to the point of old-fashioned, and run like a well-oiled machine. Neat paths meander between stone buildings through gardens of fig trees, jasmine and potted geraniums; there are lawns trimmed with rosemary. And you can watch the sunset from wicker chairs on a terrace overlooking the green slopes of the Chio Valley. Heaven indeed.
