“Real Tuscan experience”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We flew into Florence and stayed the night. We then drove to San Casciano, did a little walking around then drove to Casa San Vito. For the average European I’m sure the road in front of the Casa was a typical country road but for someone from North America it was a not much above a farm lane. Partially paved in front of the houses, but the rest was rough gravel with rocks exposed. Not what we had envisioned. Driving at night back to the Casa was not for the faint of heart, or the typical North American driver. I must also mention that there was a cheese factory at the end of the lane, so there was a constant flow of traffic starting first thing in the morning and onto the night.

Now having said that, we had a great experience at the Casa. We did our sightseeing in the morning and afternoon, picked up groceries on the way home and had terrific home made dinners. As a matter of fact we made friends with the guests staying in the Casa Rosa next door, meeting them for drinks after dinner and actually inviting them for one of our dinners. This is not an experience you will get staying in a B&B or a hotel.

The casa was very clean, with a well appointed kitchen and even a charcoal grill on the premises. We had a table and chairs on the outdoor patio for the warm evenings and a nice sitting area in the house for the cooler evenings. The sitting area accommodated 6 people without any difficulties. The kitchen had a medium size fridge, gas stove, electric oven and even a dishwasher. The table easily accommodated 6 people. There was also a washing machine in the Casa should you need it.
This was a great location for sightseeing, within driving distance of Siena, Greve, Radda, San Gimignano and Volterra.
The Casa was located on a hill providing a lovely view of the vineyards and farms of the surrounding country side. A postcard picture view from any of the windows in the Casa. We wanted to experience Tuscany as a local not a tourist and we certainly got it….

“Month in Tuscany”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I rented the house for a month. We wanted the feeling of "living" in Italy and this house was perfect. Several friends came to stay with us for varying times and we all had a wonderful time. The kitchen is big, we cooked most nights we were there. The family that owns the house was very helpful and accommodating. We were there in time for the grape harvest, which was pretty fascinating. The house is literally in the middle of grape vineyards and olive tree orchards. The house is very comfortable, and I can't wait for another opportunity to go back! Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to "Live" in Italy. You must have a car! The property is near Florence and Siena, and the center of Tuscan wineries, but impossible to navigate without a personal vehicle.

“What a View!”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

What a view. From the patio we could see for miles Chianti country. This is a central location to Siena, Florence, San Gimingnano and Chianti country. 

The home was well furnished and cozy. Groceries can be picked up in Tavernalle, that is no more than a 15 minute drive.

You can go to Florence in less than 30 minutes parking south of Florence. 

The owner, Francesco was very informative providing several places to eat. We had the best pizza in Tavarnelle. A friend of Francesco owns the pizzeria. Real friendly workers who know English. This is not a tourist place. Lots of local families, but quiet. Try the kiwi pizza. Real different, has a sweet and salty thing that does work. No Hawaiian style pizza there.

The owners also have another place on the property with an enclosed sitting area too. We were provided a charcoal barb and bought steaks and had our wine we picked up at one of our wine tours for a closing, and on to Venice. 

We miss it already, but we will be back. We are thinking about a family reunion and rent both places.
