Casa Amore is filled with light and space built into the side of a hill on the ground floor with all doors and windows opening out onto a large, multi-level garden terrace that overlooks the vineyards in the quaint village of San Sano. Casa Amore is located on the front side of a newly restored medieval building (about 12th century), now home to eight separate apartments.

The two bedroom, two bathroom villa has a large, fully equipped gourmet Tuscan kitchen with connecting dining and living rooms – a wonderful entertainment area for friends and family and plenty of room for everyone. The living room has a flat screen TV, DVD player and iPod/CD stereo. The winters are warmed with a wood-burning stove in the living room.

Locally made Tuscan tile flooring is throughout the villa, which creates a warm and comfortable environment. The bedrooms have beamed ceilings and thick walls from the original structure, which was meticulously maintained for its architectural integrity and beauty.

Each bedroom has French doors that open onto a spectacular view of the vineyard, which produces the local San Sano wine. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the second bedroom has a trundle bed that opens to a double bed (as desired) and an en suite bathroom. The two bathrooms are both with showers.
The owners of Casa Amore are Americans, who share a love for their family and Italy. The husband’s grandfather was born in Southern Italy, and a loving tribute to him hangs in his photograph over the staircase.
High-speed wireless internet access available for an additional fee of 25 Euros per week. Please bring your own laptop.

Savour the historic richness of San Sano while enjoying a relaxing day by the pool situated within the property’s private vineyards. Staying in the pristine village is a unique journey back into time when life was slow and passionate; and neighbours sat in their yards and sipped wine while watching the sunset.
The village of San Sano is a step back into thousands of years of history. With less than 100 residents, San Sano is nestled among the vineyard-covered rolling hills of Tuscany. Within the small village, is the property once owned by a local winemaker, and now fully restored into individual villas with every detail carefully monitored to ensure the structures remain authentic and untainted.
San Sano has one restaurant, a small grocery store, and an intimate church with Sunday morning services at 10. This medieval village is surrounded by walking paths, which are ideal for early morning walks and bike rides. The large pool is on the edge of the villas, adjacent to the vineyards. The pool, accessed by ladders, is 14 meters by 7 meters and has comfortable sunbeds in which to relax while catching up on reading. The pool is open from Easter through November.
San Sano has a rich history – just ask any local! They’ll tell you about the “boozy frog” fountain in the small park where neighbors gather throughout the day. Many years ago, a resident of San Sano was a contestant on a game show and told an outrageous tale about how the frogs in his village got drunk from drinking Chianti wine from the bottle. It was such a wild story that he won the contest and with his prize money, he bought the fountain for the community to enjoy.

The villas in San Sano are ideal for traveling couples who want to split their holiday time between wine tastings, relaxing around the pool, walks in the surrounding areas and taking day trips to other villages, and dining in all the great Tuscan local restaurants. One couple may want to explore, while the other couple stays at the villa.


San Sano is a short drive to dozens of charming villages, and the larger communities of Gaiole in Chianti, Radda and Siena. It has everything anyone could imagine to capture the true Tuscan experience.
A parking area is available for guests use.

Pros Die Ausstattung insgesamt hat mir gut gefallen. Die Küchenaussatattung war sehr gut.
Die zentrale Lage, alles sehr gut erreichbar.
Cons Die Schlafzimmer waren feucht, da sie im Soutairan liegen. Die Empfehlung, das Haus zu heizen ist völlig inakzeptabel, da nicht die einzelnen Mieter für den Erhalt des Hauses zuständig sein können. Zudem wäre es schön, wenn das Haus um eine Waschmaschine erweitert wird. Bei einem 3 wöchigen Aufenthalt, wäre es schön, könnte man einmal etwas durchwaschen und bei einem Preis von knapp 1000 Euro pro Woche, m.E. Auch Standard. WLAN zu teuer, da heute selbstvetändlich
Local attractions Das gesamte Chianti Gebiet . Pizzeria in Radda (Pizza Pie), hier die Riesenpizza für 2 Personen Montalcino, Radda, Volpaia. San Gimignano total überlaufen

Pros CAsa Amore est situé face à l'unique restaurant-bar-épicerie du magnifique petit village de San Sano. Les enfants ont pu y manger des glaces et nous y boire notre café !!
La maison a une terrasse agréable quoique un peu sur le passage.
Cons Pas de chance il a beaucoup plu cette semaine en toscane, et la maison Casa Amore est un peu enterrée, très sombre et humide. Les douches n'ont pas de débit, et la literie assez moyenne. La piscine était très sale le samedi de notre arrivée, et mon mari a du passer le filet. La personne chargée de la nettoyer n'est venue que le lundi.
Local attractions Sienne est vraiment très proche et très belle. Le chianti permet beaucoup de ballades. Nous avons découvert une très belle épicerie : Casa Porciatti à Radda

The bedding and linen are supplied by a professional laundry company. The pool is cleaned twice a week by the property management - apologies that the cleanliness was not to standard - this may have been due to the rainy week.

Pros Mooi ruim appartement, veel leefruimte buiten, zeer volledig ingerichte keuken.
Cons De douche was erg matig, weinig waterdruk en moeilijk op temperatuur te krijgen. 's middags geen zon op ons terras.
Local attractions Heerlijk geluncht bij rest Marlborghetto in Lecci. Absolute aanrader, prijs - kwaliteit fantastisch, authentiek Italiaanse gerechten en ontzettend lieve, attente eigenaars.

To Tuscany team comments for this review:

13.08.2014
Owner update: The problem with the pressure in the shower stems from too much calcium in the water and the very old municipal pipes that come from the Commune di Gaiole. New pipes are gradually being installed in the area. In the meantime, the owner will ensure that the showerheads and faucet screens are treated more regularly. Thank you for informing us.

Pros San Sano ist ein ruhiger beschaulicher Ort und ideal gelegen für Ausflüge in das Chianti Gebiet. Casa Amore hat 2 Schlafzimmer und 2 Bäder/Toiletten und die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet.
Local attractions Das Restaurant Grotta della Rana direkt gegenüber ist wie immer sehr gut; auch das Resaturant Malborghetto in Lecchi ist sehr zu empfehlen. Sehr schön ist auch ein Ausflug zum Kloster Badia a Coltibuono bei Gaiole mit einem sehr guten Restaurant. Nicht vergessen den Chinati-Skulpturenpark, nur 20 min von San Sano (ein Park mit Skulpturen auf einem einige qm Waldgelände)

Pros De ligging is echt speciaal en het feit dat het een monument is ook. De omgeving is prachtig onderhouden en vooral het kleine winkeltje aan de overkant met restaurant Grotta della Rana (gerund door een echte Italiaanse familie) is een zegen.
Alessis, de dame die ons zorgzaam binnenliet en in Lecchi (2 km verderop) een biologisch restaurant runt, was een ware engel.
Cons Maar 1 ding, die alle gemiddelden omlaag trekt: geen airco in de keuken / woonkamer. Eigenaresse (overigens zeer bevlogen dame) heeft uitgelegd dat dit komt door de bouweisen mbt het monument. Echter met 42 graden echt een gemis. Ee losse airco is echt een must. Eigenaar heeft aangegeven dit gelijk te gaan regelen! Beneden is het, zeker als je de luiken overdag dichthoudt, lekker koel.

Pros Die Gegend war sehr schön und das Haus groß genug um sich ein wenig zurückziehen zu können. Der Pool war sehr gepflegt und die Anzahl der Liegen war ausreichend. Das ganze Areal war sehr gut gepflegt. San Sano selber liegt idyllisch zwischen Hügeln an denen Wein angebaut wird und ist wirklich ein fantastischer Rückzugsort (wenn man die kreischenden Kinder der anderen Urlaubsgäste am Pool nicht berücksichtigt, die den ganzen Tag über Vollgas geben).
Cons Die Infrastruktur ist wirklich nicht besonders gut. Außer einem kleinen Laden, dessen alter Besitzer einen grießgrämig bedient, gibt es nur mehr das Ristorante daneben, in dem einem derselbe ältere Herr mit ständig mieser Laune begegnet. Der nächste Supermarkt ist im knapp 10 km entfernten Lecchi. Wer hier also Urlaub machen will, sollte entweder genug Proviant mitbringen oder sich auf lange Fahrten mit dem Auto gefasst machen.
