San Sanino is impossible to properly describe. The Del Toro family have created a part of heaven on earth. Over ten years, Ubaldo, the father, built a lovely stone home overlooking a breath taking view of the Tuscany country side. It is said a picture is worth a thousand words but this view requires a talented cinematographer to properly capture the magnificence of its beauty.
Upon completion of his house, Ubaldo spent five years constructing, adjacent to his house, four guest suites of different sizes plus a kitchen dining room building for the lovely Laura, Ubaldo's wife, to cook for their guests. Ubaldo loves technology and each bedroom suite contains remote control satellite music and television, as well as electronic glass doors to a great shower. The bathroom also contained a huge jacuzzi with changing colored lights. We went to sleep and woke up to the delightful sound of chirping birds.
Breakfast is included with the price of the room. Dinner is optional but Laura is such a good cook that we stayed for dinner three of the five nights we were in Tuscany. One evening we had dinner on the outside patio and the other two we ate in the dining room. The Del Toro family including their son, Giacomo, 25, who is studying to be a judge, their daughter, Bianca, 13, and Giacomo's girlfriend, Bernadetta could no be more accommodating and gracious. The location is central for visiting a number of Tuscany towns.
We were very sad to leave San Sanino and the Del Toro family. They promptly responded to our every need and did everything possible to make our stay the best experience possible. We are already talking about when we will return.
We spent our 40th wedding anniversary in San Sanino and found it to be a very romantic spot. We believe San Sanino would be a perfect place to honeymoon.
If you planning to visit Tuscany and do not stay at San Sanino, you are making a major mistake.
Del Toro family we look forward to our next visit.
