Property Overview

Former Convent in Tuscany “Saint Clair” – Set within the ancient walls of the picturesque medieval town of Sarteano (Si), a charming 15th-century former convent currently used as a hotel and restaurant. An exclusive private garden of approx. 1,500 sqm completes the property.

The property is a former convent of the order of the Clarisse nuns, built directly on the castle walls of Sarteano (Si). Used for different purposes over the course of time (first as a cloistered institute, then as a primary school, and finally as a refuge for wounded German military veterans from the Italian front during the last war), today the property is an elegant accommodation facility located between the most renowned resorts of the Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia.

The entire property consists of the monumental complex of the former convent distributed on three levels and used as a hotel-restaurant, with a commercial area of over 1400 square metres, a park/garden of 1500 square metres and an olive grove of 1710 square metres. A few metres from the former convent is a further building, currently dilapidated, that can be restored by means of a renovation that maintains the same architectural typology. The ground and first floors of the former convent are dedicated to the hotel part: – the L-shaped ground floor extends along a central body from which, through small hallways, it is possible to access six double rooms with bathrooms, plus the suite that was formerly the lodgings of the Mother Abbess (the original bakery oven is still inside); on this same level there is also the office and the entrance with access from the streets of the historical centre; – the first floor, reached by a main staircase, houses a flat with eleven beds, two bathrooms and a working fireplace, which can be rented out on a weekly basis; – The basement level, used for the restaurant business, contains a hallway for receiving guests, two dining rooms seating 80 people, a kitchen divided into two separate rooms, two toilets for guests, a hallway with a further toilet for staff, a heating plant, two cellars and accessory rooms such as a woodshed and/or storage rooms.


The former Saint Clair convent is currently a hotel-restaurant and is well-suited to such use by a future purchaser wishing to continue the existing receptive activity, increasing and enhancing its capacity, since the property has great potential for development. At the same time, by changing its use and carrying out some interventions, it could also become a beautiful and important prestigious residence in Tuscany, where to spend one’s holidays and free time.

The ancient former convent is located in the heart of the historic centre of Sarteano (Si), in the immediate vicinity of all services, with beautiful views of the Val di Chiana and the Trasimeno, Chiusi and Montepulciano lakes. The climate and proximity to small and large towns make Sarteano a good destination at any time of year. The town is easy to reach by car or train, given its proximity to the A1- Chiusi-Chianciano Terme exit (6 km) and the Chiusi (Si) railway station.
