Savour the historic richness of San Sano whilst enjoying a relaxing day by the pool situated within the propertyâ€™s private vineyard. Staying in the pristine village is a unique journey back into time when life was slow and passionate; and neighbours sat in their gardens and sipped wine whilst enjoying 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 occasional Sunday morning services at 10 am. 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 is 14 meters by 7 meters, 1.5 metres at the deep end and is accessed by ladders. The paved surround has tables, parasols and comfortable sunbeds on which to relax whilst catching up on reading. The pool is fenced off and is open from Easter through October.
San Sano has a rich history â€“ just ask any local! Theyâ€™ll tell you about the â€œboozy frogâ€ fountain in the small park where neighbours 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 18km to Siena. It has everything anyone could imagine to capture the true Tuscan experience. A parking area is available for guests use with 1 covered space and 1 uncovered space allocated to Casa Isabella.
