Location: Antico Borgo di Sornano

Sornano is a small traditional Tuscan hamlet nestled in the Chianti hills not far from Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti. The stone hamlet boasts excellent views of the vine and forest covered Chiant hills, onto San Gimignano. There are several sections to the hamlet and Antico Borgo di Sornano is the largest part.
The Antico Borgo di Sornano has a lovely pool built on the highest part of the hamlet. The large pool is surrounded by terraced lawns dotted with olive trees, sun beds and umbrella. The views are over the hamlet roof tops, onto the Tuscan valleys and hills topped with little villages, including San Gimignano.
This part of the hamlet consists of 5 villas. Three are rented on a permanent basis while two are rented occasionally. Surronding the property are other houses, however none of them overlook the pool area and there are no permanent residents, only locals who visit occasionally. None of the other houses have access to the pool.

When at Antico Borgo di Sornano make sure to ask the owners to show you the cellar carved into the hill side off the main courtyard with it's original wooden barrels and old wine bottles. Also to be seen is the old water well with it's iron manual pump.


Although children are welcome at the property it is not really recommended for young children as there are many narrow stone steps and various levels throughout the gardens and building area.

Stay: July 2013
Pros Sehr schöne Wohnung und äusserst geschmacksvoll eingerichtet (mit Antiquitäten). Tolle Anlage, sehr gepflegter Garten. Freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber, toll!
Cons Geschirr, Besteck, Gläser waren ein wenig knapp für vier Personen. Auch sonstiges Küchenzubehör war wenig vorhanden (Rüstmesser, Scheidebretter, Salatbesteck).
