This charming villa was originally a barn with dovecote, which has been restored and converted into a comfortable three bedroom home by the owners. It is set in its own large private grounds with far reaching views over the surrounding Tuscan countryside, yet is only a short walk into the centre of the popular village of San Sano.


Situated to the rear of the property on a lower terrace is the large swimming pool. It has a paved surround furnished with sun loungers, parasol, tables and chairs. Relaxing by the pool you have a fantastic view over the beautiful Tuscan countryside and the garden.

The main entrance is via the covered terrace which leads into the hallway. To the right stairs lead up to the first floor, to the left is a cosy seating area.


An archway opens into the lounge dining area which has the traditional wooden dining table and chairs for six people.  To the left are some stairs leading down to the living room which has large windows on the three external walls giving the room a bright feel with great views.

From the dining area a short corridor takes you to the two ground floor main bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms to the right has a double bed with wardrobe and a bathroom with shower opposite, the bedroom to the left is a similar size but has a larger bathroom with shower.
The country style kitchen is off the lounge/dining area and has an oven with gas hobs, fridge/freezer and microwave. A further door from the kitchen opens onto a terrace furnished with table and chairs, from here you have views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside. There are steps down into the garden, at the bottom of which is a brick built barbeque and pizza oven.

The first floor small bedroom (pink bedroom) has twin beds and a wardrobe, there is a bathroom located opposite the bedroom which has a shower, basin and WC. All bedrooms have free standing fans. Please note the stairs to the first floor are quite steep and would not be suitable for young children.

Outside the large fenced garden wraps itself around the property and is completely private with an olive grove and a small vineyard as well as open grassed areas with brightly planted terracotta urns dotted around. The medieval village of San Sano is only a short stroll away and here there is a restaurant, a small grocery store and a church.



Set in large private grounds, yet only a short stroll into the centre of the village of San Sano.


The twin beds can be converted into a double if requested when booking.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Virginia.

The house is beautiful and the various spaces around the house ensure that you also have somewhere different to sit and a different view to take in.

We loved the pool and the space around it.

The local restaurant is great and perfect for those days where you just want to stay local.

The hosts were accommodating and helpful.

We will definitely be keen to visit again.

Had a wonderful stay at Casa Virginia, the villa was perfect for us. The villa is in a beautiful location and well laid out. The views from the villa are stunning. The pool area is fantastic and we enjoyed dining outside. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our time here and were sad to leave!
Local attractions Ristorante Malborghetto in Lechi in Chianti (short drive away) had lovely food and a great atmosphere. We enjoyed a private wine tasting experience at Rocca di Castagnoli, which we found by chance and was reasonably priced. We booked a private chef (Andrea) who came to the villa and cooked us an amazing meal for a birthday celebration which was a wonderful experience.

Très bien située avec une vue splendide.
Les propriétaires sont agréables, accueillants et attentionnés.
J'ai juste quelques remarques :
Avant dernière nuit je me suis réveillée avec un énorme scolopendre
dans mon lit et une énorme piqûre.
Le mur de la chambre à côté de lit est fissuré.
La wifi est trop lente.

OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your comments. The windows of the house all have mosquito nets. Finding a wild animal like a gecko in a country house is of course normal. A slot in the head of the bed wall is simply a normal settlement of the house and took place after a refurbishment two years ago.

This was an amazing villa with great scenery and pool. We were welcomed warmly, and the hosts left wine and cake. Nice touch. The location was great and it was very quiet which we wanted. The beds were comfy and the bathroom/ kitchen clean. The terrace by the house was perfect for long lunches and an evening glass of wine (sunset was perfect over the vineyard).
Local attractions San Sano village is simply beautiful. We also went to Siena and our host recommended a nice pizza place near the Duomo. Also went to Florence and got the tram in from the outskirts. That was recommended too. Good advice.

Spent a week at Casa Virginia in August with our two daughters aged 19 and 18. Everything about the villa exceeded expectations. The gardens are huge with loads of seating and lovely flowers. Villa very big, beautifully presented, big kitchen with everything you could possibly need, all three showers very powerful. For us the best thing by far was the swimming pool, went in it every day. Great views everywhere and quiet location. Massimo the owner was charming and his wife made us a delicious cake.
Local attractions San Gimignano was delightful with its piazzas and towers. Climbed the main tower and got some great views.

Die Lage des Hauses und der damit verbundene Ausblick sind ein Traum! Ein perfekter Ort für erholsame Tage; sehr ruhig gelegen.
Die Besitzer, Elena und Massimo, haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen.
Die Terrasse an der Küche ist auf der Nordseite des Hauses und daher der perfekte, schattige Ort für die Mahlzeiten. Die Anfang des Jahres vergrößerte Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und bietet ausreichend Platz.
Den Pool haben wir sehr genossen. Für die maximal sechs Bewohner des Hauses ist er groß genug.
Noch ein Tipp für alle, die nicht mit einem SUV anreisen: Die Einfahrt am Grundstück beim Reinfahren möglichst weit links (Rausfahren rechts) befahren. Der Unterboden des Autos wird es danken.
Local attractions Nur etwa fünf Auto-Minuten entfernt liegt das "Ristorante Malborghetto": Ausgezeichnetes Essen auf höherem Niveau (auch preislich). Ähnlich gut, aber etwas einfacher und günstiger, war es in der "Osteria Le Panzanelle" in Luccarelli (ca. 30 Minuten mit dem Auto). Wer bereit ist ca. 50 Minuten zu fahren, dem sei das "Ristoro di Lamole" in Lamole bei Greve empfohlen. Ausgezeichnetes Essen mit fantastischem Ausblick zum Sonnenuntergang. Es ist grundsätzlich ratsam einen Tisch zu reservieren.

Villa et piscine magnifiques. Endroit très calme. Propriétaires sympathiques (nous les avons vus à notre arrivée et à notre départ). Maison très propre. Cuisine très pratique et grande. Salle de bains parents très jolie et spacieuse, 2 autres salles de bains petites, mais fonctionnelles.

VILLA A CONSEILLER!

Seul bémol : compris dans la location de la villa : 50 kW d'électricité par semaine. En étant prudent et économe, nous en avons dépensé 3x plus, équivalant à Euro 35. Donc prudence à ceux qui réservent cette villa en automne, hiver et au printemps...



Local attractions Restaurants à conseiller : - il Bandierrino, Piazza del Campo, Siena : excellentes pizza, les meilleures jamais mangées. Belle terrasse sur la place et prix corrects pour les pizza, si vous ne prenez pas encore une entrée et salade. - I'Galletto Briaco, Gaiole in Chianti : plats régionaux délicieux, copieux, prix corrects, patron parfois stressé mais sympathique. Pizza "Assassine" à recommander pour ceux qui n'ont pas peur de la quantité de piments (défi à relever avec mon fils qui en a laissé qu'un 8ème).

Amazingly situated villa with beautiful views. Nice terraces, olive trees. Great swimming pool. Typical tuscan house.
Very polite and helpful owners.
Especially we would like to thank Elena for delicious cake she baked for us.
The villa is perfectly situated for wine lovers. 4 km to Castello di Brolio, 2 to Catello di Ama - both great vineyards.
Local attractions I recommend a restaurant in Lecchi "Ristorante Malborghetto" . Everything there was delicious and tasty. Starting from antipasti ( bruschetta with fish and another one with truffles and pecorino), trough pasta, soups (courgette with shrimps - my 9 years old son licked the plate - it was so delicious), and meat - I ate tagliata with truffles, my husband bistacca fiorentina. Fully recommend.
