Property description

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.

# SPECIAL OFFER 3 NIGHTS from 1st to 4th APRIL 2015
We have to fill a gap in the calendar, so just for those dates we accept a 3 nights stay. 896 euro/night, total rental cost 267 euro.

# EVERYTHING AT WALKING DISTANCE
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.

# EXPLORING TUSCANY
Florence centre can be reached in 30 minutes by public coach service, departures are at 650 from the property. Our holiday house is much appreciated by those who want to visit Florence without a car or to explore Tuscany. A dual carriageway leading to Florence and Siena is 3.5Km away. For those with car, we have a private parking inside the property.

# THE HOUSE
Two bedrooms with air conditioning, one double bed and two twin beds (can be joined on request), two bathrooms, an equipped kitchen, a living room. Bedding and linen are included.
There is an automated heating system on both floors. A broadband Internet connection (7 Mbps ADSL with WiFi b/g/n modem&router) at your exclusive use, all the house and part of the garden are covered by WiFi (you can turn it off any time).

The house is not suitable for children between one-and-half and seven years old.

# OUTSIDE: TERRACE and GARDEN
The terrace in front of the house has got a great view over the countryside, it's at your exclusive use. You can have meals outside as it's equipped with table and chairs under a gazebo (uncovered during Winter). A stone barbecue is available (wood is not provided). A garden with olive trees and fruit trees surrounds the house. On the back there is our farmhouse and other buildings of the village. The property is part of the village of San Casciano, it is not isolated in the countryside.

# ABOUT US
We (wife and husband) live in a farmhouse few metres away and we can help you in case of need (although we don't give any professional service as ours is a simple self catering accommodation). I am a recently retired teacher of English and French.

# ANY QUESTION?
For more information about Il Visciolo please contact us and we will send you the address of our web site. We won't send unsolicited e-mails and we always reply promptly.
