Nestled in the Chianti hills on the edge of a cluster of restored farmhouses Villa Sornano lies a few minutes from Poggibonsi, near the road that leads to Castellina in Chianti. It is surrounded by rolling hills and overlooks the valley below and the medieval towers of San Gimignano in the distance.


The villa has terraced patios that lead down to a large pool. From the terraces and well-maintained gardens there is a wonderful view of the Tuscan hills dotted with villages and towns.

In one corner of the garden there is a swinging chair from where you can admire the sun set over San Gimignano. The villa and its gardens are protected from its neighbours by a fence.


The large well-restored house is spacious, light and airy with its many doors that lead onto the patio and into the garden. To the right of the entrance hall there is a family room with television and DVD. This room leads to a bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower.


On the left of the entrance you find yourself in a large lounge with three sofas and an open fireplace. The floor is tastefully tiled with terracotta tiles and white glazed tiles. The high ceiling has the original wooden beams and terracotta tiles.



From the lounge you pass into a large hall opening onto the first floor. There is a staircase graced by a cast iron railing. In the hall there is a guest toilet. Off the hall there is a door leading to the back garden and patios.


To the left of the hall there is a dining room with an antique wooden table and sideboard. In one corner of the dining room there is a comfortable corner with wicker chairs. From this room there is a door that leads out to the gardens at the front of the house.


On the right of the hall a door leads to the fully equipped kitchen. From here there is access to the small vegetable garden and another door that leads onto the furnished patio with BBQ.


The entire first floor has a wooden floor and high ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles. At the top of the stairs on the first floor there is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. The windows of this room look across the olive groves that neighbour the property on one side.


There is also a bathroom with a bath-tub and marble holy water fonts converted into his and hers basins. A door leads off the hall into a long corridor off which there are 4 more bedrooms. The first is a double room with an antique wardrobe.



There are two twin rooms with antique painted wardrobes. From both the rooms there are doors that lead onto a small balcony from which there are steps down into the front garden.


At the end of the corridor there is another double bedroom with TV and an excellent view to the rear of the house and over the hills beyond. This room has an en-suite Jack and Jill bathroom together with one of the double bedrooms.


From the light and spacious villa there are many doors into the garden.



From the windows and garden there are beautiful views across the hills.
Pets are not allowed.

Pros Die Lage und der Pool waren einfach traumhaft.
Cons Für das, das die Villa für 12 Personen ausgelegt ist, gibt es zu wenig Liegestühle und Sonnenschirme. Die Villa bietet mehrere Terrassen. Diese konnten tagsüber nicht genutzt werden, da es ohne Sonnenschutz einfach zu heiss war. Im Poolbereich hat es zwei Sonnenschirme.
Local attractions San Gimignano hat uns am Besten gefallen. Wir empfehlen einen Besuch früh morgens.

Owner Comment: We are thrilled that you found our location and pool fabulous! Thank you for the feedback on the sunshades and sun loungers. In order to cater for a variety of preferences and groups, some outdoor areas are shaded, and some are not. Similarly, the pool area is furnished with a choice of seating (loungers, beds and chairs). We keep additional loungers and shades in store for those clients that require them. I am sorry as it appears we did not communicate this option clearly to you. We hope to welcome you to Villa Sornano again in the future - same “traumhaft” pool, only with more shade!With kindest regards,D & T - owners

Pros The location and roominess. Pool was great and the privacy was very good. The pizza oven and BBQ where a plus. Multiple places to dine in the Villa was an added convenience. We ate in three different locations including the outside table.
Cons The washing machine needs some English instructions. A dryer would be a real plus for families staying for a week. Some of the windows screens in the bedrooms don't work. There was no utensils for the pizza oven. The kitchen trash can is too small. Hope these are looked at as helpful suggestions.
Local attractions The closeness to vineyards. The restaurant Antico Ristorante Pestello was excellent and was within ten minutes of the Villa. We also liked the COOP in Pogginosi where they had great selections for a wide variety of items.

Owner Comment: We are delighted to hear that you have enjoyed your stay at Villa Sornano. Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas on how to further improve future guests’ experience. In response to your feedback we have: (1) left English instructions for the washing machine (and dishwasher); (2) re-checked and oiled all the window screens; (3) provided utensils for the wood fired-oven; (4) ordered a larger trash can (which should be in the house by the end of July 2015). We also appreciate that there may be times when a dryer is useful; we are considering ways in which we can balance our guests' convenience with our commitment to limit our impact on the environment and will be consulting with To Tuscany as to how best to do this. Again, thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to welcome you at Villa Sornano in the future. With kindest regards, D & T - owners

Pros On a recent visit to Villa Sornano I was delighted to see the new owners have been working hard to make their villa even more comfortable for fututre guests, they created shaded pergola for outdoor dining by the olive grove, redecorated all rooms in tasteful colours they updated crockery and glasses, replaced some standard furniture with antiques and modern design pieces upgraded and upgraded internet signal, they added iPod docking station/speakers and small selection of DVDs and books in English and restored the wood fired oven so it is now in working order, quite a list!
Local attractions There is great access to the highway to visit Siena and Florence despite the idealic countryside setting of the villa in addition Sornano sits between the Chianti town of Castellina and the splendid tours of San Gimignano.
