HOLIDAY HOME IN A RURAL VILLAGE CLOSE TO FLORENCE, WALK TO RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS

San Casciano in Val di Pesa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Set in the village. Terrace with view. Bus to Florence centre at 650 metres.

The house was a typical Tuscan barn till 2006. We converted it respecting the rural tradition of the Florentine province. Our converted barn is located few steps away from the centre of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, a village set in the Chianti area of Tuscany. The village of San Casciano in Val di Pesa has got many shops, bars, some good restaurants and pizzerias. Most of them can be reached walking, as our holiday home is at just 350 metres from the village centre.

# LOCATION

Florence centre can be reached in 30 minutes by public coach service, departures are at 650 from the property. Our holiday house is much appreciated by those who want to visit Florence without a car or to explore Tuscany. A dual carriageway leading to Florence and Siena is 3.5Km away. For those with car, we have a private parking inside the property.

# THE HOUSE

There is an automated heating system on both floors. A broadband Internet connection (7 Mbps ADSL with WiFi b/g/n modem&router) at your exclusive use, all the house and part of the garden are covered by WiFi (you can turn it off any time). The terrace has got a great view over the countryside.

We (wife and husband) live in a farmhouse few metres away and we can help you in case of need (although we don't give any professional service as ours is a simple self catering accommodation). I am a recently retired teacher of English and French.

Two bedrooms with air conditioning, one double bed and two twin beds (can be joined on request), two bathrooms, an equipped kitchen, a living room. Outside there is a terrace with a table and chairs, a barbecue, a garden with olive trees. Bedding and linen are included.

The house is not suitable for children between one-and-half and seven years old.

# FOR MORE DETAILS

I am a retired teacher of English and French, I live with my husband in a nearby farmhouse on the same property.

Flora purchased this cottage in 1993

The property is located just outside the village and enjoys a great view over the Tuscan countryside. We are few hundred metres from a big supermarket, shops and good restaurants. The centre of Florence can be reached with or without a car in half an hour. You'll feel in the countryside, still having the convenience of a town.

Location, the view, appliances, broadband Internet access (both Ethernet and WiFi), private car park inside the property, English spoken.

THE BEST TUSCAN EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Many thanks to Flora for her amazing hospitality and kindness. The four of us were greeted with a warm smile and some delicious snacks and chianti! The property is very well maintained and felt like home. Comfy beds and modern bathrooms made the stay relaxing. Wasn't sure about the location but it turned out it was perfect. The bus to Florence was right down the street and took about 45 min. We also had a car and with some guidance from our hosts were able to find some incredible places to see. San Casciano is small but offers a lot in terms of dining and shopping; nice change from the hustle and bustle of Florence. And when our luggage didn't arrive for several days, Flora was a tireless advocate in helping us get it!
I can't recommend Il Visciolo enough. It is everything you would expect and then some. We will be back to make more memories!!!

BEAUTIFUL HOME; STUNNING VIEW; PERFECT EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
What a great location to explore Tuscany -- Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano! We, a family of four, stayed in this Tuscan home mainly for the "secured, free" parking. We were given a parking garage for the car, which we left for our day in Florence. Other than that we took day trips to the place above and more. Our week was full of travel, but it was nice to come back to the house (and the VIEW) to relax. We had all our breakfasts and most of our dinners outside looking over the olive groves. The kitchen is fully functional, including a dishwasher. We did laundry twice with no problems. The kids had their own room (and bathroom -- great upstairs shower!) and we had ours. For someone who has had back surgery, the beds were firm, which I need. Internet is easy to use. Communication was beyond excellent with Carlo. So much so, that we were able to have our forgotten clothes sent to us overnight with Carlo delivering them to us. As for our espresso and cappuccinos, there are restaurants/cafes right up the street (as well as a grocery store). As I said, a perfect location to easily drive into town and out of town, yet close enough to walk into it as well. Thank you, Carlo! I would highly recommend this beautiful, restored Tuscan house!!!

WUNDERBARES HAUS IN WUNDERSCHÖNER UMGEBUNG

  • 5 of 5
Wir mieten seit vielen Jahren in Italien und in Frankreich Ferienwohnungen und -häuser. Dieses Haus ist für uns mit Abstand das Schönste! Alles funktioniert, es ist wunderbar eingerichtet, der Blick ins Tal ist fantastisch.

Die Gastgeber sind sehr nett und freundlich, uns wurden alle Wünsche umgehend erfüllt und es gab sehr interessante Hinweise für Ausflüge und Restaurants. Das Zentrum des Ortes ist nur 3 Minuten Fußweg enfernt, die Einkäufe sind daduch einfach und gemütlich zu erledigen.

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder! Versprochen!

ZENTRALE LAGE FÜR DIE WICHTIGSTEN ORTE DER TOSKANA

  • 5 of 5
Appartement in eigenem Haus mit sehr schöner Aussicht. Von der Terrasse vor dem Haus kann man herrlich den Sonnenuntergang genießen, dafür ist sie vormittags im Schatten. Das Haus ist eingebettet in einen großen Garten mit Olivenbäumen und Rosmarinbüschen. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Alles zum Kochen ist vorhanden. Optimal für 4 Personen. Flora und Alessandro haben uns einen herzlichen Empfang bereitet und uns alles detailliert erklärt. Ebenso haben wir wertvolle Lokaltipps in der Umgebung erhalten. Auch während unseres Aufenthalten standen Sie für Fragen immer zu Verfügung. Perfekte Internetverbindung. Von San Casciano kann man mit dem Bus nach Florenz fahren, ca. 1 Std., Pisa, das Meer, Siena, San Gimignano usw. sind mit dem Auto in ca. 1 Std. zu erreichen.
Beschreibung und Bilder entsprechen der Realität. Wir hatten wirklich einen schönen, entspannten Urlaub, der unsere Erwartungen voll erfüllt hat und können das Haus nur weiterempfehlen.

ABSOLUT FANTASTISCH!

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben eine ganz fantastische Woche in dem schönen Häuschen von Flora, Alessandro und Carlo verbracht und haben uns dort sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt.
Der Wohnung fehlt es an nichts, aber was v.a. unschlagbar ist, ist der einfach wunderschöne Ausblick von der Terrasse und den Fenstern, der wirklich so schön wie auf den Fotos ist.
Unschlagbar ist auch die Lage: nur wenige Kilometer nach Florenz, wohin man auch gut mit dem Bus kommt, dann hat man keine Parkplatzprobleme. Siena oder San Gimignano sind ebenfalls sehr gut zu erreichen.
Die Vermieter sind absolut freundlich und hilfsbereit, wenn man das wünscht, aber auch sehr diskret und man kann wirklich ungestört sein.
Diese "Ecke" der Toskana ist für uns die schönste, und wenn es uns wieder einmal dorthin zieht, kommen wir im Il Visciolo unter!
Grazie mille, Flora, Alessandro e Carlo!

ENTSPANNUNG UND KULTURELLE HIGHLIGHTS

  • 5 of 5
Il visciolo ist ein sehr liebevell renoviertes und eingerichtetes Landhaus mitten in der Toskana. Von der Terasse blickt man direkt in die Weinfelder. Im Ort gibt es zahlreiche kleine Trattorien, in denen man wunderbar essen gehen kann. Florenz (ca. 30 Min.) und Siena (ca. 60 Min.) sind mit dem Auto gut zu erreichen. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir kommen gerne wieder :-)
