Lovely apartment with a great view
The lovely apartment was very comfortable and well heated for the chilly autumn weather; a frost outside on occasion! It is nicely situated in the Chianti region, not far from Florence and has a spectacular view of the snow-clad mountains on a clear day. Our host, Andrea, and his parents, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. A great stay!
My stay at the Francioni property was lovely. Andrea and his mother were very accommodating hosts.
The property is about 1 hour 20 minutes by bus from Florence and about one hour by car. I did not know that one cannot park a car in Florence, so being the green traveler that I am, spent a bit of time trying to figure out where I would park my car near Florence. I ended up using a large car park off of the auto strada, then taking a tram into Florence.
I had the romantic idea of wanting to shop and cook at the house in San Casciano, but ended up eating out a lot. The kitchen is equipped for someone that has little interest in cooking. The stemware is extremely fragile, so don't attempt trying to wash it. I went to eat at the restaurant Il Gallo Giallo that is said to be very good. That was not my experience, but being a chef, I may be someone that is particularly fussy, so may be lovely for those who are not as picky. The family running the restaurant is sweet and have a young son, who on the evening I was there, was selling his father's photos to the diners. It was charming, but also a bit odd.
The property is well situated between Florence, Siena and San Giminiano as well as other places of interest. If you are looking to stay in a relatively quiet location with accommodating hosts, then I would encourage you to stay!
Had a great stay at this place. You definitely need a car to visit here as very few buses ever came through. Andrea was very nice and made sure we were happy. We really used this place to sleep and I wish we had had an extra day so we could have just spent the day relaxing here. I would recommend Osteria Gallo Giallo which is right down the way but make sure you have reservations as they fill up quickly. Make sure you talk to Andrea about parking in Florence if you are driving there because there are so many laws that will get you out there. One other thing, make sure you read the notes at the end of the property posting for getting to the property. It's not in GPS and it's outside of San Casciano, past Mercantale. Highly recommend!
We only had a two night stay at this gorgeous home and we will forever regret not staying longer. The apartment was very comfortable and well furnished with all you need for your stay. The bed was comfortable and even though it did not have air conditioning, the room was very comfortable and cool. We enjoyed their spa one evening, which was perfect for relaxing after having walked around Italy all week! Andrea was helpful with sharing how to get places and what to see. We wish we could have seen so much more. It was a gorgeous trip!
A Week in Paradise
We spent a week in San Casciano at this charming property. The apartment itself is completely furnished
with everything necessary for an extended stay. The location is convenient to all the treasures of Tuscany.
Most of all the friendliness of the family made us feel like we were staying with our own family. They made
us feel comfortable and went out of their way to make sure that we took full advantage of the all wonderful
opportunities Tuscany has to offer. We are already thinking about a return visit in the future.
Tuscan Summer Holiday
Words cannot adequately describe the wonderful experience we had at Andrea's property. The property was breathtakingly beautiful. Andrea and his wonderful wife and family made us feel so very welcome. His wine is amazing and I wish it was available in the US. 10 days at the property was just wonderful and my husband and I cannot wait to return. I can't describe completely this fantastic experience and holiday!
