La Fontanella, San Sano - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena and Chianti

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Set on a slight rise, with extensive views of undulating vineyards, Fontanella has an open, relaxed feel inside and out. At the edge of San Sano, a small medieval village popular with walkers and cyclists using its local paths, it is also well positioned for days out in Siena, Florence and San Gimignano, which are easy drives, not to mention access to the higher Chianti hills and towns.

The villa is laid out as two apartments, connected internally by a spiral staircase, lending itself equally to parties of friends or family. Tall pine trees bring drama and dappled shade to the grounds, which have something for everyone, from the cooling private plunge pool and terrace, a play area that is great for smaller children but also includes a volleyball/badminton net, an excellent brick-built barbecue and pizza oven, and shaded outdoor dining table. There is a restaurant a short walk away in San Sano (together with a small grocery store and church), but your garden here is super for al-fresco dinners.

Our Thoughts
This is a great no-fuss villa in the best sense – you have everything you need here and the living is easy. If someone in your party likes to rise and take a walk or cycle before breakfast, there’s a clutch of paths just beyond your doorstep that will show them the way. You have two kitchens and an outdoor barbecue for preparing food, and three furnished spaces outside, from picnic to dining table, plus one inside. No one will be squabbling over a bathroom. And you are very well placed for trips out, including Chianti vineyards such as Brolio, Dievole and Meleto, for wine tastings.

Notes
Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms, one en-suite. The twin room in the first-floor apartment can be made up as a double if you request when booking. The garden is fenced. There is another small building in the grounds which is unoccupied.
Air conditioning is available in the bedrooms.

Pool
The oval pre-fabricated pool is partly raised above the ground. The water is accessed via ladder steps from a terrace on one side, which has two sunloungers and a large umbrella.
Pool size: 7.5m x 4.5m, 1.1m deep. Open from May to 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.

Prachtig huis, prachtige omgeving, wel wat weinig te doen in nabijheid door de bergen kost alles veel meer tijd. Wel prachtig om in te rijden.
Voor de hond was de tuin geweldig. Heerlijk eigen zwembad.
Local attractions Pianella, restaurant Gallo Arrosto. Heerlijk gegeten voor een leuke prijs. Bij grotta della Rana is reserveren noodzakelijk ( kun je vaak niet zomaar terecht). Siena, SAN Gimignano, Parco Sculptura Winkel in Lecchi heeft elke dag vers brood, op zondag dicht!
