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.

To Tuscany team comments for this review:

16.10.2012
Thank you for your comments. Casa Stella is one of two apartments in the San Sano hamlet that does not have any balcony or terrace because of their central location within the hamlet. We mention this online under the FAQs section: "Is there a balcony or terrace belonging to the apartment? Yes all have with exception of Casa la Botticella and Casa Stella" We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found it comfortable. TT

Pros The village is lovely and it was great having a good restaurant so near, literally on our doorstep.
Cons We found being on the first floor just too hot and missed having our own outdoor area, the one provided was too far and it was absolutely roasting during the day, there is no shade, could have done with an umbrella. Also found some of the residents who own their own property on the site felt they had more of a right to the facilities than those of us who were just holiday lets.
Local attractions Great being so close to Siena and the next village on had a great deli and bar. Good places to eat in Radda especiallly Bar Dante great value for money, also loved the local restaurant.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Es waren für unsere Familie (10 Personen) wunderschöne, idyllische Tage in einem der schönsten Ortschaften in der Toskana.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr gut. Die Ferienhäuser und die Aussenanlagen sind super renoviert. alles ist in seinem Stil geblieben. Das ganze Dörfchen ist ein Stück Paradies. Sehr liebevoll, sauber und freundlichen.
Das Restaurant ist sehr emjpfehlenswert, wenn man richtig toskanisch essen will. Ebenso super das Hotel in San Sano.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen?
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Wenn Sie diesen Standart halten können, dann gratuliere ich. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.
