Casa Virginia, San Sano - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

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.

Our Thoughts
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.

Notes
Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms. Steps between some rooms make Casa Virginia less suitable for those with mobility problems. Please state on booking if you would like the twin beds to be converted into a double.
There is a restaurant in the village, just 5 minutes walk away from the villa

Pool
Set on a lower furnished terrace with paved surround, the handsome pool is accessed at its Roman end via internal steps into the shallow water; the deep end has a diving board and ladder access. Pool size: 12x6m, 1.10m-2.60m deep: Open from end-May to end September, weather permitting.

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 a restful and idyllic retreat, situated in the pretty little hamlet of San Sano with stunning views over lush and beautiful countryside. Elena and Massimo had very kindly left us with a tasty homemade cake and bottle of wine to enjoy on our arrival which was a pleasant surprise. We found the grounds to be peaceful and spacious, and the house to be clean, airy and well equipped with various outdoor seating areas to relax or dine in throughout the day. When we could tear ourselves away from the superb pool we found San Sano to be ideally positioned for sight-seeing as well as having a charming family run Trattoria within just 2 minutes walking distance (booking advised due to popularity). For basic essentials, there is a very small Coop food shop in Gaiole (no more than 10 mins drive away) but a much larger Coop supermarket on the outskirts of Siena (around 25 mins) for a more comprehensive shop. Besides the countless superb wineries in the area are the charming medieval towns to explore for ceramics and other craft work from the region. We loved this ‘home away from home’ and would highly recommend.
