San Fantino stands for sustainable, ecological, environmentally friendly, skilful, local, respectful, balanced, creative, handmade, honest, simple and aims to create a brand that encompasses all of this.

The estate has at its disposal over 30 hectares on 5 different properties, all within a short distance, with an old country house, a large old farm and 8 buildings of various dimensions which will all be restored in the coming years.

The main property, San Fantino is located at the edge of the medieval village of San Giovanni a Piro; its 5 hectares include a 500 sqm old farm transformed into a guest house of 7 bedrooms, a large living/dining room and swimming pool (the Locanda). The 850 sqm country house was built in the 17th century and is one of the few existing examples where living quarters and agricultural facilities are in the same building; it has not been touched since the 19th century.

The other properties are Jacine, about 7 hectares situated at the foot of mount Bulgheria (1,250m), home of the Pinot Noir vineyards; Corrado, about 3 hectares situated just above the beautiful small harbour of Scario; Masseta, about 16 hectares situated along the coast with direct access to the sea and reachable only on foot or by boat and Ciolandrea, about 1 hectare situated above the cliffs with dramatic views of the sea.


We make efforts to accommodate the most extravagant desires, San Fantino aims to be a place that sets its own rules and where anything can be done providing it doesn’t interfere with the other guests.

Outside there is a pool and several places where to sunbathe and to sit, hammocks are hanging in between trees.

Staff are available in the morning to clear up from the evening, prepare breakfast and picnic lunches; in the early afternoon the housekeepers do the rooms. Upon request a cook and additional staff would be available to prepare lunch and dinner or to serve drinks.

The farm produce from the vegetable garden and the fruit orchards, the jams, the olive oil and wine are all available to the guests.
