...in the full center of the Chianti Region
Chianti, the area in which Chianti Classico wine has been produced for centuries, is that part of Tuscany that is bordered to the north by the suburbs of Florence, to the east by the Chianti Mountains, to the south by the city of Siena and to the west by the valleys of the Pesa and Elsa rivers. The area is traversed by the Superhighway of the Palio. It is a land of ancient traditions that was civilized in remote periods first by the Etruscans, who left many traces of their activity in the wine sector, and then by the Romans. In the Middle Ages, the cities of Florence and Siena battled for control over the zone. Villages and monasteries, castles and fortresses appeared during that period and many of them were later transformed into villas and country residences when times were more tranquil. It was then that spaces were cleared in the vast forests of chestnuts and oaks for the cultivation of vines and olive trees
The Chianti Classico climate is of a continental type, with relatively low temperatures in winter (4-5 degrees C. or 39-41 degrees F.) and dry, hot summers in which it is not rare for the mercury to rise as high as 35 degrees (95). Temperatures do not vary substantially in the course of a day, which is partly due to altitudes that range from 250 to 600 meters (820-1,968 feet) and exceed 800 meters (2,624 feet) in the Chianti Mountains.
The terrains in the zone are just as diverse as the altitudes and the various types of soil characteristic of the Chianti Classico zone bear no relation to the communal boundaries.
However, it can be said that marl predominates at San Casciano in Val di Pesa, while calcareous clay is found in substantial quantity in the soils around Greve in Chianti
Clean, comfortable, well maintained and appointed. Beautiful views from front and back balconies. Closeness to the bus to Florence a bonus. Antonio was a most welcoming host - thanks mate!
Stayed here for a week in September 2013. A spacious apartment in an awesome location. Really friendly owner. Would highly recommend as a Tuscan base.
My husband and I had a lovely stay in this apartment. It is well equipped and very comfortable. The location is as advertised - easy to reach so many important cities. The kitchen gives you the choice of cooking in so you can have a relaxing breakfast, lunch or dinner. Off street parking is a plus too! One of the most memorable parts of our visit was the nice welcome provided by the owners. We would visit and stay here again over and over!
We stayed here for a few days in spring 2012 and had a great time. The apartment on the first floor is very spacious (2 bedrooms + kitchen with large table + large living room) and has three balconies. You can enjoy sun in morning & evening, with beautiful views over the hills.
Carlo and his mother had decorated the apartment in romantic style and provided everything we needed (the fully equipped kitchen was great). They also gave us great tips for bike rental and cities to visit in the area, as well as restaurants in San Cascaiano itself (it's a 5-10 minute walk to the city center, which has some very nice restaurants).
San Casciano is a great point to start your trips to Florance/Greve/San Gimignano/Castellina/Siena/etc and the apartment has its private parking space. We certainly recommend it!
Our family just returned from our holiday in Italy. We spent one week in this lovely condo style one floor apartment. It was "roomy, clean and well equipped". The pictures are accurate and the apartment/condo has 3 lovely balconies. The furnishings were new and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and we took advantage of the local merchants as well as the supermarket not far from the apartment.
The bedrooms were very large & comfortable for our family of 4 adults and one baby. A portable bed and high chair were provided for our use. Wifi in the apartment was excellent. The kitchen and living room area were very large. After a long day out we spent many hours in the evening around the family style table in the large kitchen. In the morning the view over the hills were breathtaking.
We had driven from Rome - the parking provided was "secure" and the area was very safe. We used our car to access Siena, Pisa, Luca, Greve and the hill top towns that surrounded us. The walled town of San Casciano provides the perfect surroundings to enjoy outings for lunch, dinner or walking around.
Our hosts greeted us and provided us with ample information on the area as well as bus information to get into Florence. We enjoyed two days in Florence and it took about 25- 30 minutes to get there by bus.
Carlo, Anthony and his mother were very prompt in responding to our questions and provided us with a very enjoyable location to enjoy Tuscany and area. Their hospitality were appreciated after a long drive from Rome. I would return to this apartment again for the beauty of the area as well as the comfort of the apartment and the location.
