Il Visciolo was a typical Tuscan barn. We converted it to a modern home in 2006 respecting the rural tradition of the Florentine province, recycling the original materials whenever possible. Free Wi-Fi.
# IMPORTANT PRICE NOTICE
The real rental cost is lower than the one reported on the booking form. The "service costs" appearing since May 2017 will not be applied when you directly rent with us. Please do not consider that voice when looking at the total cost. If you really want, you can still pay using their service and pay the related costs, but please do not give your credit card data to the web site before contacting us. Send an availability request using "Ask owner a question" without booking. Thanks.

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. A big COOP supermarket is 7 minutes walk from the house.
