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.

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 many others listed, is truly in the village of San Sano.
