Location: San Sano


Savor 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 neighbors 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 located in a lovely hamlet with good connections into Siena, and the local tratorria provide good reasonably priced meals with a very good wine selection.
Cons The lack of air conditioning and Wifi. When the temperature got very hot, it got unbearable especially at night. It is now a basic requirement to have wifi, the 10Km drive to an internet cafe for my work and the kids to facebook was a serious pain in the backside. Also one day we tried to get the Train to Florence from Montevarchi and whilst in a long slow que for tickets the train came in and went and once at the front of the cue we were informed no more trains to Florence for another 2 hours. Florence trip called off then!
Local attractions Greve in Chianti, San Gimignano and Voltera are all worth visiting and not more than 90 minutes away max. The local trattoria is very good.

Pros The Villa was very clean and well equipped. The village of San Sano is charming and friendly. Having a restaurant and shop across the road is very convenient. The pool and grounds are clean and nicely landscaped. We had a wonderful time.B
Cons The beds!! The villa really needs new mattresses. All the "stuff" sitting around needs to be removed, e.g. artificial flowers, ceramic vases, etc. There is no flat surface which isn't crowded with something.
Local attractions The restaurant Marlbourgetto exceptional!! The Trottoria Renna across the street is convenient and tasty. (I hope I have these names right.) We enjoyed shopping in Radda.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The wine tour that was organize by your rep at destination. We really had fun.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Great. Clean.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Yes. The condo has no terrace and was actually on the second floor, there is a flight of stairs outside and another one inside. Making it on the second floor, not the first floor.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? There sould be more "adaptors" in the unit. All the electrical equipment in the unit would not fit in the wall unit. The situation was corrected by your representative at destination.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The location, the pool.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Great - Very clean.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? The Osteria next door could be very noisy at night for the room next to the road. A problem if you had small children.
Do you have any other comments? I think it would be a good idea to have a guest book where visitors could leave suggestions of places to eat etc..The information in the book was very general.
