2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
San Casciano in Val di Pesa, Tuscany
The holiday house is located 300 metres from San Casciano in Val di Pesa centre. Facing the open country from a dominant position, it offers the comforts of a town life and the beauty of the Chianti landscape opening on hills with vineyards and olive trees. There are no building in front and down the hill, while the house back faces our car park and other village buildings.

The holiday house is an old detached building restored in 2006 and is finely furnished in Tuscan country style.
Il Visciolo is the ideal place for those who want to enjoy the village life and move away (even without a car) to visit Florence, Siena and other tourist places. There is a frequent, cheap and fast coach service to and from Florence historic centre that is just 16km away. Coach service connects San Casciano also to Siena and other Chianti country villages....

About the neighbourhood
San Casciano in Val di Pesa is situated to the south of Florence, surrounded by the neighbouring Comuni (Municipalities) of Scandicci and Impruneta (to the north), Greve in Chianti (to the east), Tavarnelle Val di Pesa (to the south) and Montespertoli (to the west). In the past it was called 'San Casciano a Decimo' because it stood on the tenth milestone of the Roman road from Florence.

San Casciano and Chianti offers a lot of tourist attractions during the whole year, like food festivals, local markets and art exhibitions. Every Monday there is a market in the main village's square. The village has got many shops, a big COOP supermarket (750 metres from the house) and many good restaurants that our guests can reach in less than 5 minutes' walk. To reach the village...
