We recently enjoyed three nights at SAV. Just do not come here thinking its like a 5 star hotel.
We found the reception after assistance from locals. The drive from Florence was easy. The ladies who run the villas are lovely and helpful.
After checking in we were escorted the one kilometer to our villa. They are rustic, comfortable and the views are fantastic.
We went to local markets (an adventure in itself) and cooked for ourselves each night. The kitchen is very basic but we managed. It might have been good to have done staples supplied. Eg: salt, pepper, fly spray. We went and bought a tea towel.
There was a pool that was apparently also used by people staying at neighboring villas, so sometimes it was a bit crowded.
Our quibbles are the water in the shower - the hot ran out in very quickly, and there was no hot water in the kitchen sink. However, overall we enjoyed the experience.
They also do a free winery tour and tasting once per week. We found it most worthwhile.
