San Casciano in Val di Pesa cottage description

The house was a typical Tuscan barn till 2006. We converted it respecting the rural tradition of the Florentine province. 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.

# LOCATION
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
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 terrace has got a great view over the countryside.
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.

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. Outside there is a terrace with a table and chairs, a barbecue, a garden with olive trees. Bedding and linen are included.
The house is not suitable for children between one-and-half and seven years old.
