This charming villa was originally a barn with dovecote, which has been restored and converted into a comfortable three bedroom home by the owners. It is set in its own large private grounds with far reaching views over the surrounding Tuscan countryside, yet is only a short walk into the centre of the popular village of San Sano.


Situated to the rear of the property on a lower terrace is the large swimming pool. It has a paved surround furnished with sun loungers, parasol, tables and chairs. Relaxing by the pool you have a fantastic view over the beautiful Tuscan countryside and the garden.



The main entrance is via the covered terrace which leads into the hallway. To the right stairs lead up to the first floor, to the left is a small seating area and the owner's storage cupboard.


An archway opens into the lounge dining area which has the traditional wooden dining table and chairs for six people. Comfortable armchairs are arranged in front of the large open decorative fireplace. To the left are some stairs leading down to the living room which has large windows on the three external walls giving the room a bright feel with great views.


From the dining area a short corridor takes you to the two ground floor main bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms to the right has a double bed with wardrobe and a bathroom with shower opposite, the bedroom to the left is a similar size but has larger bathroom with shower.

The simple country style kitchen is off the lounge/dining area and has an oven with gas hobs, fridge/freezer and microwave. A further door from the kitchen opens onto a terrace furnished with table and chairs, from here you have views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside. There are steps down into the garden, at the bottom of which is a brick built barbeque and pizza oven.

The first floor small bedroom (pink bedroom) has twin beds and a wardrobe, there is a bathroom located opposite the bedroom which has a shower, basin and WC. All bedrooms have free standing fans. Please note the stairs to the first floor are quite steep and would not be suitable for young children.

Outside the large fenced garden wraps itself around the property and is completely private with an olive grove and a small vineyard as well as open grassed areas with brightly planted terracotta urns dotted around. The medieval village of San Sano is only a short stroll away and here there is a restaurant, a small grocery store and a church.



Set in large private grounds, yet only a short stroll into the centre of the village of San Sano.

Pros die Räumlichkeiten sind größer als von den Fotos her erwartet. Die Terrasse, die von der Küche abgeht ist mit einem großen Tisch und 6 Stühlen bestückt, was uns sehr gefreut hat, da es auf den Fotos nicht recht zu erkennen ist. Das Haus ist in einem sehr sauberen und guten Zustand. Ein klappbarer Tisch ist in der Küche eingebaut, sodass man mit drei Personen mühelos arbeiten kann. Küche ist mit allen Utensilien ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst. Alle Fenster sind mit Fliegengitter versehen, die man zur Not auch hochschieben kann. Das obere Zimmer ist seit kurzem mit zwei zusammen schiebbaren Einzelbetten bestückt. Die Lage/ Ausblick ist ein Traum. Es übertraf unsere Vorstellung. Massimo, der Besitzer, hat alles super in englisch erklärt und uns auf Wunsch auch ein Verlängerungskabel zur Verfügung gestellt. Vielen Dank dafür. Ein Adapter ist auch im Haus vorhanden. Das der Pool einige Schritte vom Haus entfernt liegt, ist kein Problem. So kann man immer wieder den Blick auf das sehr schöne typisch toskanische Haus und auf die tolle Gegend werfen. Dieser Aufenthalt war einfach nur toll. Wir kommen gerne wieder :-)
Cons nichts. Es war alles top !
Local attractions ca. 30 Auto-Min. entfernt liegt Siena. Sehr schöne Kulturstadt. Hier kommt man gemütlich vom großen Parkplatz aus mit Rolltreppen in die Altstadt. Das in San Sano liegende Restaurant mit kleinem "Tante Emma Laden" ist ganz gemütlich aufgemacht. Das Essen ist ok - geschmackssache. Im "Laden" bekommt man für den Notfall alles, nur das Brot aus der Theke sollte man vorher auf Härte/ Frische testen.

Pros Very friendly and helpful hosts .
Excellent Villa in wonderful setting with extensive attractive grounds .
San Sano is small and very peaceful but with a good traditional tratatoria . Many good restaurants nearby .
Excellent meal prepared and served by Massimo and his family .
Cons Some of the towels are in need of replacement . Bench seat in lounge is not suitable for relaxing . A second settee would be much better .
Local attractions We visited all the local towns . Siena was excellent but parking was not easy . For a different dining experience try Le Contrade in Gaiole . A little more expensive than most , but food and service excellent .

Pros Location was perfect.
Very peaceful with beautiful views.
Kitchen was small but quite adequate.
Cons They should leave extra towels and sheets in the house. If you wash the towels, there would be no spare towes to use while they were drying. Or if you don't have time to do the wash that moment but needed clean towels, this would certainly be a problem. Buying extra towels was the only option, but really not a good solution.

Pros Da wir beinahe einmal im Jahr in die Toskana reisen, kann ich mit gutem Gewissen schreiben, dass es sich bei diesem Haus um ein wirklich empfehlenswertes Haus handelt!
Der 44 Einwohner Ort (Angabe nicht überprüft) eignet sich perfekt zum Entspannen; Jubel-Trubel Liebhaber werden sich langweilen.

…pünktliche Schlüßelübergabe, verständliche Erklärung bei Übernahme, gut aufgeteiltes Haus, drei Terrassen zum chillen, "harte" Betten für komfortables schlafen, sauberes Pool,………..
Eigentlich kann ich mir weitere positive Kommentare sparen, wären wir nicht zufrieden gewesen, hätte ich das Haus nicht mit "ausgezeichnet" bewertet!
Cons mmhhhhh, ........dass wir es wieder verlassen mussten ;-)

Pros The villa is secluded and private but not isolated as you are in a small hamlet and can walk to a trattoria which also has a small shop. The pool was fabulous - large, spotlessly clean and with with wonderful views.
A highlight was a 5 course tuscan meal cooked and served by the owners in their outdoor loggia. Wonderful idea and would highly recommend it. The outdoor pizza oven was also a hit with the family.
We hadn't t been to Tuscany before but loved the location as you could just as easily visit small villages, top restaurants, big cities .......or just stay by the pool!
Local attractions Castillo di Brolio - the castle is still occupied by Barone Ricasole but you can walk in the grounds, around the battlements and go in the crypt. Incredible views from the battlements and entry includes a free wine tasting. There is a restaurant by the castle- we didn't eat there but it looked very good and popular with Italiens.. Badia a Coltibuono has another great restaurant attached and you can go on a tour of the grounds of the 11th century monastery. We also enjoyed the local trattoria in San Sano as well as a day trip to Siena.
