Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Residence San Sano

Località San Sano 21, Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany, 53013, Italy

An open-hearth fireplace and hand-hewn stone porticoes hark back to the 13th century, when this was a fortress. The small hotel has modern amenities, including a beautiful outdoor pool, but the traditional tone is maintained by the wood-beamed ceilings and simple country-style furniture that decorates the rooms. The scent of lavender and rosemary wafts from the gardens, and all rooms have soothing views of the surrounding vineyards and hills.
