he unique experience of a country house holiday close to the thermal baths of Rapolano, in the heartland of the province of Siena.  Santabarbara offers hospitality in the old hayloft restored using the principles of biological architecture.  It is situated just opposite the owners’ home; a doctor and a school teacher who decided to give a sense to the restoration of their home, in order to share it with travellers with a particular attention to the quality of life.  Not mini apartments nor crowded holiday resorts, but a large house for just one family or a group of friends; nearby, yet far enough from the owners’ house  to guarantee one’s own privacy. The owners, trustworthy and discreet neighbours to chat with in the garden or at the pool side and ask for information to solve a problem.


Santabarbara combines lifestyle and Tuscan beauty at the thermal baths of Rapolano and San Giovanni, within easy reach, these baths are a haven of wellness, offering every type of treatment and the possibility to bathe in a series of scenic pools of beautiful sulphur water.  All this, together with the medieval hamlets, castles and splendid hills,  within walking distance.
