Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Visitors to Tuscany come for many reasons. Many come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture.

There are many things to be seen and done in Tuscany, the main difficulty is to choose where to start from. Certainly most should start with Florence, then continue on to Siena and Pisa. The roll call of città d'arte, cities of art, is daunting: Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca are all striking.

From our house is easy to reach all those places because San Casciano is just 3 km from a dual carriageway that connects Siena to Florence and then to A1 motorway. You could visit the most attractive Tuscan cities and charming country villages while enjoying the village life.

San Casciano in Val di Pesa

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 centre you do not have to get a car as the house is just 350 metres far from it.

There is a public swimming pool, recently opened, at less than 2 Km from the property (called Piscina del Chianti).

Reaching Florence is very easy, the coach terminal is 650 metres from the house and the trip lasts 30 minutes ending in the centre of Florence, opposite the railway station and 500 metres from the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (the Duomo). To reach Siena by bus you will have to change in Poggibonsi.

“Villa and location perfect for our needs.”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

We were looking for accommodation that had a peaceful outlook but easy access to amenities and travel - this was perfect! The house is extremely well equiped and comfortable and the view over the Tuscan countryside from the terrace is lovely. Flora is an excellent host who goes out of her way to ensure guests get the most from their holiday. San Casciano is a very pleasant little town where you can find good shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of the villa. The nearby Coop, deli and a shop sellIng fresh pasta were excellent! We did not want to drive and used buses to visit Florence, San Giminagno, and Siena with no problems at all. We had a fantastic holiday!

“great location, lovely place”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2012

travelled with husband, grown up son and sons girlfriend. easy to reach by flying to pisa then pick up hire car. straightforward drive. san casciano is lovely area. can walk into town from the house in the evenings and have a great meal at one of the lovely restaurants. the local coop is a short walk away so you can pick up meats, olives and cheeses and have lunch sat in the lovely garden patio area. views are amazing. owners friendly and helpful. easy to reach florence, pisa and surrounding areas. worth a visit to natural sulphur hot springs - bit of a drive away, but fantastic. take a picnic. would definately recommend a stay here and we will hopefully go again. only thing that would improve it for us would have been a hot tub in the garden and an extra sofa in lounge.
