Casa Virginia, San Sano - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

You will love Casa Virginia’s openness: set on a gentle slope above a vineyard, with a backdrop of olive trees, pines and cypresses, the sky above is large and the horizon wide. The villa is well placed for visiting Siena – and Florence and San Gimignano are easily reachable – but its impressive private pool, charming and generous garden, three furnished terraces and loggia will compete for your attention. Swimmers, especially, will appreciate the pool’s substantial size (12 metres long, with a deep end that justifies a diving board).

Converted from a traditional barn and dovecote, Casa Virginia does not disappoint inside either. Traditional meets modern, solid meets stylish: from the terracotta tiled floors, beamed ceilings and scattering of antiques to the well-equipped, glass-screened contemporary kitchen and rattan-furnished loggia. Arranged over three levels, with outside spaces on three sides, the villa offers multiple options for chasing sun or shade through the day, enjoying a quiet moment alone or socialising. Ideal for groups of up to six family or friends.

We love this bright, airy villa for the thoughtfulness that has gone into it: from the eye-catching terracotta planters and vine-covered pergola outside to the interior layout, which creates a series of interconnected spaces. The cook of the party need never feel cut off from the rest of the group, for instance, being divided only by a glass screen from the dining room and a step or two away from the terrace outside the kitchen. This latter spot is surely a great choice for lazy, hazy breakfasts.

The small peaceful village of San Sano has one restaurant, called La Grotta della Rana, a small grocery store, and a small church with Sunday morning services at 10am. This medieval village is very popular with walkers and cyclists, surrounded as it is by pathways, which are ideal for early morning walks and bike rides.

Casa Virginia is in the small village of San Sano. It is well located, a short drive to the next village of Lecci which has a small store or 10km into Radda which has an excellent COOP. There is a small trattoria in the village where we are a number of times and enjoyed the food.
There was a good market on Sunday in Panzano.
The house is quite comfortable but lacked enough lounge room seating for the six of us (it was getting cooler in the evenings)
The kitchen was good but there were no basics such as oil etc that we are used to when we stay in equivalent accommodation is Australia. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and found the shops closed so that was a little problematic as we had our grandchildren with us and needed to stock up. Minimal cleaning supplies were included. We did get some more at the start of week two
The beds were ok but the pillows definitely needed to be replaced.
They loved the pool which was still warm enough for swimming.
The view across the vineyards was glorious.
Overall we did enjoy our two week stay at Casa Virginia
