About the property

Very peaceful old farm-house in the green of our countryside close to the main centers of Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano etc..).The flat is comfortable all over the year. This holiday home is part of a seventeen century villa immersed in nature, surrounded by the many beauties of the Chianti region. It is close to Florence and Siena (approx. half an hour drive).

This apartment, where the owners lived for a long time, tells of country life. The big old-fashioned fireplace make it cosy and welcoming.

The living-room covered by a vaulted ceiling leads onto a small private garden with table and chairs, which is ideal for having breakfast and lunch in the shade of the pergola. The bedroom covered by a vaulted ceiling is very romantic.

"The Chianti countryside ...

  • 5 of 5

"The Chianti countryside surrounding us was breathtaking, and we really appreciated the little terraced garden onto which we could step from the living room. We felt so welcome, and were greatly helped by Signor Rovida's useful advice. It was a peaceful, relaxing and private place to stay, and we hope to return again in the future."

Wonderful place with peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful and peaceful location. Beautifully placed among the olive fields, but only a 5 min walk from the city of Mercatale, where you have nice cafés and a supermarket. Although you feel like you are far away from everything, you are right in the heart of Tuscany and Chianti. Firenze, San Gimignano and Siena are all within an half an hour drive away.

The family is truly heartwarming and friendly - the best of hosts. You can buy their local wine - made from the grapes on the fields next to the house, as well as the olive oil - made solely from the olive trees around your house.

The only downside we experienced was that the wifi was a little weak in the middle of the house. You had to be by the doors and windows to catch it.

I can highly recommend this place. We stayed in Gemma and loved it.

Bon Séjour à San Casciano

  • 5 of 5

Endroit calme et reposant.

Logement frais et adapté pour les chaleurs : un peu vieillot mais confort suffisant pour des vacances d'été. Bon rapport qualité / prix. Attention cependant aux colocataires qui piquent !

Bon accueil du fils du propriétaire : les produits de la ferme sont excellents et de qualité (vin et huile d'Olive).

Nous recommandons le lieu et ses environs.

  • 5 of 5

Maison très agréable, idéalement située au milieu des grandes villes et petits villages de Toscane, au milieu des vignes. Le propriétaire est très sympathique, parle français couramment et vous parlera volontiers de sa région. Il nous a dailleurs gentiement prêté deux vélos, et sa propre huile d'olive est à tomber par terre. Des commerces sont à moins d'un kilomètre, la maison est équipée pour cuisiner. Un souvenir de vacances mémorables!

Car: recommended

By Car: To reach Il Noce coming from the Highway A1 exit at Firenze-Certosa and get immediately into the 'superstrada' (toll-free highway) to Siena. Exit at S. Casciano (it is the first exit you will find) and follow the signs for S. Casciano. As you reach the village keep on the street you are coming from until you find the signs for Mercatale on your left. Mercatale is about 6 km from S. Casciano. Once in Mercatale you will find a crossing: keep the right (you shall not go to the centre). After about 200 metres you will see on the right the 'Banca del Chianti Fiorentino' and the 'Ceramiche Ceccarelli' shop. Turn immediately on the right and take Via Poggio Borgoni. The land road leads to the entrance of the owner's villa, which has the number 79. Go to the right following the street which ends in the farm's court.

We can give information about gluten free products available in local supermarkets or restaurants, ice cream and pizza in the area where you can eat gluten-free.
