Casa del Mastro is set in the heart of the picturesque village of San Sano, an idyllic medieval village nestling in the heart of the Chianti vineyards and a haven of Tuscan tranquility. With views over the vine clad hillsides surrounding the hamlet and just a short stroll from the delightful restaurant and local grocery store, this lovely villa has a small garden and terrace that enjoys sunshine throughout the day and allows guests to relax in the stunning sunsets over an early evening glass of wine.

Casa del Mastro is located in the main part of the newly restored 12th Century wine merchant’s house, and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms so can comfortably accommodate four people. The addition of a double sofa bed and 2 single guest beds gives guests the added benefit and flexibility of being able to sleep an extra 2 people if required.

Access to the villa is through its own cast iron gate into the garden area which is mainly laid to lawn with Mediterranean trees and shrubs. The terrace has table, chairs and umbrella perfect for outside dining and there are also sun loungers for guests use. The stone pathway leads to the swimming pool.


The villa is accessed via four steps leading up from the patio area, directly into the kitchen. This is a bright modern galley kitchen with fitted units along one wall. Fully equipped the kitchen has plenty of storage, a built in oven with separate gas hob, a dishwasher and large free standing fridge/freezer.
The downstairs is very light and spacious : an archway from the kitchen leads into the dining room which has the traditional Tuscan wooden dining table and 6 chairs with matching furniture. Double wooden doors which can remain open if required lead through into the bright and comfortable lounge area which has two sofas, one of which can double up as a sofa bed; there is also a TV and a DVD player.
There are terracotta tiled floors and beamed and tiled ceilings throughout the ground floor of the villa. A further door from the lounge leads back into the kitchen and the stairs to the first floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a laundry room with washing machine. Both bedrooms have air conditioning units. The master bedroom has a double bed and own bathroom with full size bath, a large separate shower, basin and WC.

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 Lage ist ein Traum. Die Aussicht von der schönen Terasse auf das kleine "verwunschene" Dorf haben wir genossen. Das Haus ist perfekt ausgestattet, auch mit vielen Extras, die in der Beschreibung nicht aufgeführt sind (Fön, Toaster, Kaffeemaschine, viele hilfreiche Küchenutensilien). Uns hat dieser Urlaub sehr gut gefallen und wir werden sicherlich noch einmal dorthin fahren, allerdings wohl ohne unsere 16 jährige Tochter, ihr war dort "zu wenig los"
Cons Wenn man hier überhaupt etwas zu bemängeln hat, dann die niedrige Deckenhöhe in der ersten Etage und die sehr kleine Dusche. An den Deckenbalken hat man sich schon mal den Kopf gestoßen.
Local attractions Siena ist in nur 18 km Entfernung, dieser Ausflug lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Uns haben die kleinen Orte in der Umgebung (Radda, Greve, Monteriggioni etc.) sehr gut gefallen, typisch Toskana!

Pros Beautiful, spacious, clean villa, beautiful surroundings. We'll stay again & will recommend to friends.
Cons Lack of basic necessities for eg. Toilet paper (only half a roll ), no sponge or detergent to wash dishes or wipe kitchen bench. A welcome pack should not have to be purchased for basic necessities. Cleaner also advised to leave €25 euro on bench when we left if we used the air conditioner? ?? This was not communicated to us at check in.
Local attractions Lovely local restaurant on property.

Pros Mastro was very comfortable. It made for a very relaxing vacation. We have stayed at San Sano before and this was a big improvement on previous accommodation. The apartment was very clean and very well equipped. We would return without hesitation.
Cons The ceilings in the upper floor are pitched. We are fairly short. We had no problem, but taller people would find things a bit tiresome. But you only use the bedrooms for sleeping.
Local attractions Sienna should not be missed. We like MALBORGHETTO restaurant in Lecchi. The pizzas at Il Ponte in Pianella are very large but very good. Il Grotta de la Rana has improved immensely and it is so close to the apartment (50 meters) that it is a must.

Pros Die unteren Räume sind sehr geräumig. Die Küche ausreichend ausgestattet. Die Kühl- Gefrierkombination ist völlig ausreichend. Sehr ruhige Lage.
Cons Die Unterkunft ist sehr hellhörig. Im kleinen Bad gibt es keine Abstellmöglichkeit für Zahnbecher ... Da die Therme nur für eine Person warmes Wasser liefert, ist das Duschen nur hintereinander möglich. In den Schlafräumen stößt man sich oft den Kopf, wenn man wie wir recht groß ist.
Local attractions Florenz sehr gut mit Zug ab Montevarchi zu erreichen. Arezzo sehr zu empfehlen, da nicht so stark von Touristen frequentiert.
