San Sano, an idyllic medieval village sitting high above the Val d’Arbia in the heart of the Chianti vineyards, has been known to travelers for generations and remains a haven of Tuscan tranquility. One recent traveler wrote: ‘San Sano is contemplative…a lovely place for a cappuccino in the late afternoon. In the centre is a dribbling frog fountain surrounded by leafy green trees and a neat cluster of village homes. The glass sparkles, the varnish shines and the geraniums stand like boutonnieres beside the doorways. Like my other favourite Chianti towns, Sano Sano is a place I need to see slowly and repeatedly'.


This apartment, in the beautifully restored 17th century Casa Isabella, has a west-facing garden where guests can watch the sunset over an early-evening glass of wine. There are also superb views of the surrounding hills and vineyards.



A central feature of the apartment, which has been restored in traditional style, is the original vaulted ceiling of Tuscan stone. There are also glazed terracotta floor tiles throughout.

Entry to the garden, which is furnished with a table and six chairs, is gained either from the roadside gate or from the stone pathway leading to the swimming pool. The front door opens into the lounge and dining area where there is a double sofa bed, dining table with six chairs, television and DVD player.
The fully-fitted kitchen has a dual-fuel oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer and toaster with ample kitchen and dining utensils. From the lounge, a hallway leads firstly to the main bathroom with shower and then to the second bedroom containing a wardrobe, chest of drawers with mirror and two single day beds, each of which has a second bed stowed beneath for conversion into a double bed.


At the end of the hallway is the master bedroom which has an iron-framed double bed, two bedside tables, a wardrobe, and chest of drawers with mirror. There is a large en-suite bathroom with a deep roll-top bath.




Opposite the apartment is a small shop and delightful family-run restaurant.
Brick BBQ in garden.

Resort: San Sano


Savour the historic richness of San Sano while enjoying a relaxing day by the pool situated within the property’s private vineyards. Staying in the pristine village is a unique journey back into time when life was slow and passionate; and neighbours sat in their yards and sipped wine while watching the sunset.
The village of San Sano is a step back into thousands of years of history. With less than 100 residents, San Sano is nestled among the vineyard-covered rolling hills of Tuscany. Within the small village, is the property once owned by a local winemaker, and now fully restored into individual villas with every detail carefully monitored to ensure the structures remain authentic and untainted.
San Sano has one restaurant, a small grocery store, and an intimate church with Sunday morning services at 10. This medieval village is surrounded by walking paths, which are ideal for early morning walks and bike rides. The large pool is on the edge of the villas, adjacent to the vineyards. The pool, accessed by ladders, is 14 meters by 7 meters and has comfortable sunbeds in which to relax while catching up on reading. The pool is open from Easter through November.
San Sano has a rich history – just ask any local! They’ll tell you about the “boozy frog” fountain in the small park where neighbors gather throughout the day. Many years ago, a resident of San Sano was a contestant on a game show and told an outrageous tale about how the frogs in his village got drunk from drinking Chianti wine from the bottle. It was such a wild story that he won the contest and with his prize money, he bought the fountain for the community to enjoy.

The villas in San Sano are ideal for traveling couples who want to split their holiday time between wine tastings, relaxing around the pool, walks in the surrounding areas and taking day trips to other villages, and dining in all the great Tuscan local restaurants. One couple may want to explore, while the other couple stays at the villa.


San Sano is a short drive to dozens of charming villages, and the larger communities of Gaiole in Chianti, Radda and Siena. It has everything anyone could imagine to capture the true Tuscan experience.
A parking area is available for guests use.

Sehr gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung in idylischen kleinen Dorf.
Großer Pool nahe an den Häusern. Der Pool wurde in der 2. Woche vernachlässigt, auf die Beanstandungen wurde jedoch umgehend reagiert.
Das gegenüberliegende Restaurant erzeugt bis ca 23:00 entsprechnde Geräusche. Nicht schlimm, aber nichts für empfindliche Gemüter.
Local attractions Tolle Restaurants in der Umgebung z.B. in Barbischio oder Gaiole. Das Restaurant/ der Laden gegenüber ist nur bedingt zu empfehlen (teuer und sehr unfreundlicher Opa). Gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Lecci (ca. 2 km) oder Gaiole. Sport: Joggen und Radfahren aufgrund des steilen Gelände nur für gut trainierte geeignet. Tolle Ausflugsmöglichkeiten nach Siena ca. 35 min und Florenz ca. 1h.

OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. We love to barbeque in the garden under the walnut tree and consider the buzz from the Trattoria opposite to be part of the charm of living in such a beautiful small Tuscan village.

Le village de San Sano est idealement placé à 21km de Sienne en pleine campagne : tranquilité assurée mais connection facile vers Sienne et les autres villes de Toscane.
L'appartement ainsi que l'ensemble immobilier vacances est excellent : confort, espace, propreté, esthétique, une piscine pour les enfants (et adultes bien sur). Parking pratique, jardinet bienvenu pour les enfants et les soirées/repas en été.
Bon accueil de la part des gérants.
Seul bémol, pas lié à l'hébergement, les moustiques sont très agressifs; prévoir des produits en conséquence si l'on est sensible.
A recommander sans hésitation : bien que le tarif ne soit pas bon marché, on a la qualité que l'on avait payée !
Local attractions Sienne à 21km: la ville, magnifique par son architecture mais aussi son ambiance, même en pleine saison Restaurant à Sienne : la Taverna di Cecco, via Cecco Angiolieri, 19 Abbaye de Monte Olivetto Maggiore à 40km: lieu, huile d'olive, vin Chateau de Brolio à 10km: lieu, vin

San Sano is een mooi, klein dorpje. De borgo, waar Casa Isabella, deel vanuit maakt, is mooi onderhouden met veel mooie bomen etc. Vanuit de tuin van Casa Isabella zie je de heuvels van Toscane en de mooie, oude huizen in de straat. Het winkeltje aan de overkant van de straat is ideaal. Verder deden wij boodschappen bij de Coop in Siena. De kinderen speelden in de tuin of op straat en wij hebben veel van de omgeving gezien. Het huis is comfortabel en van alle gemakken voorzien. Ter plaatse word je ontvangen door Liz. Liz is zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
Local attractions - Trattoria Grotta Della Rana in San Sano. Dit restaurantje aan de overkant van de straat is gezellig en het eten is er eerlijk en heerlijk. - Siena (circa 30 autominuten); wij parkeerden altijd bij parkeerplaat San Francesco. Daar kun je met roltrappen naar de stad (vonden de kinderen fantastisch). - Radda in Chianti (heerlijk ijs bij 'Sandy') - Monteriggioni; een klein, volledig ommuurd plaatsje met een klein 'riddermuseum' - Castello di Brolio (imposant kasteel met prachtig uitzicht en goede wijn) - Alle andere (kleine) plaatsjes in de buurt zijn de moeite waard.

Very good restaurant and shop opposite the villa.
Hot water to the shower intermittent and mostly luke warm with low pressure.
Local attractions Grotta Del Rana restaurant opposite very good. The small shop sells a wide range of very useful food and wine but is expensive. Free vine tasting tour at the Dievole vineyard. Siena visit using the car park and lift as described in the info in villa. Big Coop supermarket at Siena. Castle at Brolio.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

24.11.2015
Owner Update: The shower problem has now been fixed. It turned out to be a calcium build up in the shower head. The problem disappeared when we took the shower head off, so we bought a new shower head and the shower is now working fine. We will replace shower head on a regular basis to prevent a repeat of the problem.
07.10.2015
Many thanks for taking the trouble to review Casa Isabella. We purchased the villa only recently and are keen to find out more about the property. We will be spending some time there later this month and will investigate your point re the hot water and remedy the matter.

Ruhiger, sehr idyllisch gelegener Ort, ursprüngliche Atmosphäre, vorteilhaft war der kleine Laden im Ort, auch das Restaurant war gut, allerdings überteuert. Kurze Wege zum Parkplatz und Pool. Die Ferienwohnung ist gut ausgestattet (Küchenutensilien waren reichlich vorhanden, Vorteil war auch die Waschmaschine). Wegen der vielen Mücken waren auch die Fliegengitter vor jedem Fenster von Vorteil (in den anderen Wohnungen waren diese nicht vorhanden).
Kleiner Kritikpunkt: Die Schlafzimmer sind zur Straße hin gelegen gegenüber des Restaurants und des kleinen Ladens. Etwa um 7.00 Uhr morgens kam der Bäckerwagen und sortierte mindestens 1/2 Stunde lang seine Brote, was sehr laut war und damit die Nachtruhe beendete.
Local attractions Siena, Florenz, Radda in Chianti (sehr zu empfehlen das Restaurant "La Terrazza"), Castellina in Chianti
