A cosy countryside retreat in the Chianti region, perfect for a small family. La Rana has the rare advantage of boasting beautiful views while still being only a minute’s walk from a grocery store and a restaurant. A private pool is just 5 metres away from the front door, and you’ll often find domestic cats wandering freely around the neighbourhood. This villa is situated in San Sano, one of the best-preserved villages in Chianti, with many of the buildings dating back to the Romanesque period. The similarly historic town of Gaiole in Chianti is just 9km away.
The pool is for the exclusive use of the guests of La Rana. It’s perfectly situated to provide fantastic views across the Chianti countryside, overlooking fields, trees and vineyards. Parasols, tables and sunloungers are set beside the water, making it a great place to soak up the sun even if you don’t feel like taking a swim.
To the left of the front door is a terrace with an elegant outdoor dining table. There's enough comfortable seating for four people to dine al fresco with perfect views of the pool and the rolling hills behind it. A set of stone steps lead to a raised second terrace with gazebo. 
We enter the villa into a kitchen diner, with dark wood furnishings, terracotta floors and a host of modern conveniences. The large fridge freezer is cleverly disguised inside one of the handsome cupboard units, a gas hob and oven sit below an extractor fan and to the left, a laundry room houses a washing machine. A varnished dining table and four chairs stand across from the front door.
A red-brick archway leads into the living room, where a large comfortable sofa and two chairs sit beside an open fireplace. A TV with satellite reception sits in the corner by the stairs, and a hi-fi is placed on the windowsill. The living room is brightened considerably by the French window which leads to the garden and terrace area. A door to the right of the archway leads to a bathroom with bathtub and shower attachment.
Moving upstairs we come to a landing area with an Italian-style billiard table with a polished wooden finish. On this floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a large shower. The billiard table is for decoration only and cannot be played on.
The door at the end of the corridor leads to the master bedroom with extensive closet space and plush double bed.  A large mirror hangs over the chest of drawers, and a pair of windows look out over the pool and towards the village respectively.
A second bedroom contains a pair of twin beds, one of which slides conveniently underneath the other, providing more space during the day. Book shelves hang over the beds and a large wardrobe and chest of drawers unit provides plenty of storage space. Behind the beds a window overlooks the pool and surrounding hills and fields.
1 double room, 1 twin room.
Double room cannot be converted into twins.
Twin beds cannot be converted into a double.
Heating is charged by consumption, electricity is included.
There is no air conditioning but there is a fan.
Property is fenced but not pet-secure.
Small pets are welcome.

Pool Info

The pool measures 7 by 4 metres with a depth 1.4 metres, and is open from May to September weather permitting. It’s situated only five metres from the front door of the villa and is surrounded by sunloungers, chairs, parasols and tables, providing everything you need to soak up the sun.
The pool at La Rana is cleaned with a chlorine system which is well-maintained by the owner and the pool provides excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

- great view and pool
- in the middle of nowhere and yet again in the middle of everything.
All pitoresk villages and even Firenze are only maximum one hour drive away.
- house has all the necessary modern facilities and is very spatious.
The house is in a very good condition.
- private parking
- one remark: during our stay it was very hot (40 degrees).
The house has no flydoors. As there are so many mosquitos it was not possible to
ventilate the house and therefore it got very hot inside the house.
A small portable aircondition and flydoors would certainly be a
big improvement.
Local attractions - everywhere in the region you can find small restaurants. Good quantity and quality. - the restaurant of the owner can also be recommended --> la grotta della rana in san sano. The food is really good - typically tuscan in a very nice scenery and only ten steps away from the holiday house.

Excellent location to see the area. Situated in a quiet village but the villa was next door to a small shop and restaurant owned by the very friendly villa owners who were only too pleased to help in any way.
Very nice villa and private pool which was not overlooked. Would return again.
Local attractions Town of Rada approximately 15 minutes drive and the winery and castle at Brioli again about 15 minutes drive.
