Upon your arrival in San Sano, a quiet, medieval hamlet, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, the drive into the small village seems very familiar as you approach. That's because it was the setting for the movie, 'Stealing Beauty' with Liv Taylor. This familiar feeling will stay with you during your entire stay as you enjoy the village and interact with the most friendly of all Italians in this small hamlet. This apartment villa, unlike others posted, is truly in the village of San Sano. San Sano is a completely, lovingly restored 700 year old hamlet of approximately 50 residences is unlike any village found in the Chianti. Here you will enjoy your days like a true Italian and spend evenings in complete silence.

This apartment villa, unlike others posted, is truly in the village of San Sano. San Sano is a completely, lovingly restored 700 year old hamlet of approximately 50 residences is unlike any village found in the Chianti. Here you will enjoy your days like a true Italian and spend evenings in complete silence. You will awake to the songs of local birds and enjoy the views of vineyards and olive orchards as you savor your espresso or glass of Chianti from the private balcony or outdoor garden. End your evenings grilling dinner al fresco in our private garden area tucked near our vineyard. The outdoor dining area is also a great place to sit and enjoy the view of the pool and hillsides. This lovely apartment is located in the heart of the village, with views from every window across the hamlet to the vine clad hillsides beyond. It is right across the small street, just steps from the front door, to one of the best restaurants in the Chianti, Grotto della Ranna. The entrance, via a flight of steps up to the balcony, opens directly into the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge area has two comfortable sofas arranged in front of the featured open stone fireplace. The well equipped kitchen section runs along the far wall of the room. There is also a traditional wooden dining table with six chairs. The two large windows open to the garden below and the vineyards on the opposite hills. A corridor to the right of the kitchen takes you through to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The first bedroom is on the left and has a wrought iron double bed, a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a flat screen TV. A hanging tapestry of angels overlooks you as you sleep. A large window opens up to the garden below and the vineyards on the opposite hills. Opposite the bedroom on the right of the corridor is a bathroom with double shower, basin and toilet. The second bedroom down the corridor also has a double bed with wardrobe, chest of drawers and flat screen TV. A large window opens up to the garden below and the vineyards on the opposite hills. The bathroom has a full size hydro jacuzzi massage bath, wash basin, toilet and bidet. The vineyard is seen from this bathroom window. The traditional terra cotta tile floors throughout the apartment are accented with imported, hand made area rugs. The approximately 2 feet thick original stone walls ensure privacy and quiet nights throughout your stay. The shared pool is open early May through September. The small local food market is located just steps from the front door across the small street. Because the road to San Sano ends in the village, there is very limited auto traffic and noise as San Sano is a destination, not a drive through village. You will be amazed how San Sano feels 'remote', but is just 10 minutes from Radda, Gaiole, and 20 minutes to Siena, shopping, train stations, museums, and of course, the Palio. The local hillsides are filled with vineyards, olive orchards, and small villages sporting wonderful Tuscan dishes and collectibles. Ceramics and hand made pottery shops can be found everywhere. You can site see, wine taste, relax, dine and sleep in peace. When you find San Sano, you have found 'la docle vita'. For those booking with us, we also offer advice on transportation, airport arrival options, itinerary planning, rental car locations, directions, and points of interest. Don't forget to ask about any special offers as well. We can offer a full turn key package for those needing complete services as well as partial week rentals at some times during the year. Long Term vacation tenants are encouraged to inquire about pricing as well. Find us on Facebook Parking is so easy, right at the front door, or in the parking spaces just a few feet away, or in our car park area a short stroll through our common garden area. If you are a couple with children and are looking for a worry free environment, then this may just be the place for you. San Sano has a small village park just across from our vineyard. There you will find swings, slides, picnic tables and play spaces - all in a safe, comfortable, and peaceful setting. Please ask if you have any questions or need further information. We look forward to sharing our piece of heaven on earth with you here in San Sano.More

About the neighbourhood
The village of San Sano, in the heart of the Chianti in Tuscany is one of the most beautiful villages I had ever seen. It was the location for the film, Stealing Beauty. The village, just a 20 minute drive from Siena, sits atop a hill, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The little village, population 60, consists of buildings built from the 14th thru 16th century, but all lovingly restored. It is quiet, safe, remote, yet convenient. Visitors to the village have often asked me 'Is this a private resort?'. Imagine - an entire village that seems like a resort, all at your doorstep. Our property has its own small vineyard surrounding the gardens with the pool set on the edge. It is an amazing place.
