PODERE LA VILLA is one of the most charming typical Tuscan houses of the area. It is located in the hilly Chianti countryside, just a few minutes outside of San Casciano where there is a large grocery store, as well as a pharmacy, shops and restaurants. It is an easy drive to Florence (15 Km), Siena (60 km), and Pisa (70 Km). From here you can easily get to San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo, and many other fascinating local villages.
