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 The garden is perfect for a baby. That was exactly what we expected. The pool is also very nice and the veranda is very fresh.
Cons There are thousands of mosquitos in San Sano (day and night), and there aren't any mosquito nets at the windows. The cleanliness could be better, and also the kitchen appliances (specially the coffee machine). There were, for example, no trash bags, candles or lighters, so we needed to buy some. I think our stay would have been much more pleasant if the owner took a little more care of the details. Anyway, we had a great time and we recommend it.

Pros The location within the hamlet and in San sano was very nice. We liked some aspects of La Scuderia - spacious sitting area and large garden. Good pool ( are there more beds for the summer months - if more apartments are full then beds/space around the pool would be a problem).
Cons The information with regard to the mezzanine bedroom and tiny accompanying 1/2-bathroom were inadequate. The headroom was far too low and the heat in that area far to high - even with the small fan provided (and the extra one we purchased). The spiral staircase was dangerous; too open and too steep. You could not put young children or infirm, older people in the mezzanine. The kitchen was grubby with discoloured paintwork and grubby countertop tiles. No kettle. - for Brits that is ridiculous! I assume that they think Brits will be staying? Poor shower. Grotta de la Rana has gone downhill. Worst of all the water supply was a real downer - Gaioli needs to sort their priorities out. We will take this into account in choosing where we stay in future.
Local attractions Rada. Malborghetto Restarant. Wandering round San Sano in the evening. Sienna. Volterra.

Pros The gardens
Cons Location ( very windy narrow roads)No microwave or kettle(both required with small children). No baby bath (should be supplied as no bath) also the power kept cutting out any time the washing machine was used, this was extremely annoying when had to go outside in the dark to find the trip switch. Pool extremely cold. We were rushed out of there bang on 10 am Saturday morning because " the owner was coming". This was extremely frustrating due to the fact we have a baby to consider and that we paid peak season prices for technically off season time.
Local attractions San Sano is a lovely village with friendly people and an expensive but lovely restaurant

What were the highlights of your holiday? Where do I start - the scenery was breathtaking, the food was wonderful and the people were so friendly. We ate in Hotel San Sano in the village a couple of times, which was really good and in such a lovely setting. They had a set menu, We liked Radda and often stopped at Lecchi as we were passing through to buy some cheeses, bread etc in the little shop and maybe have a glass of wine or two next door! We ate in the Marborghetto Restaurant in Lecchi and that was lovely. Would recommend both of those places as we couldn't fault the food! Our visits to San Gimignano and Siena. As you can gather we had such a lovely time.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    We stayed in La Scuderia and it was excellent - just as it looked on the website. We loved the garden and the stunning views (which actually were even better than we had imagined), in fact we all loved it. It definitely has the best garden out of all the places there (Festin looks after it so well).
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? None
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Festin was so nice, smiley and friendly but it would have been nice if he could have spoken some English as it was a bit hard to communicate! When we called to say we were on our way it was really hard to make him understand - luckily there was an English man there who spoke and translated to him......The ceiling upstairs in the Mezzanine is low and our friends hit their heads several times!!

Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? No
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? The dishwasher is not fitted properly in the housing so that it falls forward when we opened it so we smashed some glasses. The light over the hob does not work. It would have been nice to have the option of air conditioning. There was no information in our villa about the surrounding area or things to do we only found out by chance from some other guests what we could do.
