TUSCANY ITALY PERFECT CASA SAN VITO VILLA
Casa San Vito is a nicely restored Tuscany villa that sleeps eight and has three bedrooms: two king-size beds, two twins, and a sofabed in living room. Two beautiful full bathrooms, large living room with fireplace, country-style eat-in kitchen, washing machine, satellite TV for a few English language news channels.

Great care has been taken in the remodelling process of this Tuscany villa to retain the many charming features while providing modern comforts and conveniences.

The villa is in the beautiful vineyard countryside between Florence and Siena and is in one of the best parts of the Chianti region of Tuscany for daily excursions to visit Florence, or to see the famous towers of San Gimignano, the sites of beautiful Siena, the baths of Montecatini, and is a wine aficionados paradise if you want to sample the many excellent varieties of Chianti. The nearest towns are San Casciano and Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa. Florence, Siena and Greve in Chianti are an easy drive. You can even make a day trip to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa as it is only a one and a half hour drive away as is the graceful town of Lucca.

On the ground floor set into cool stone walls is the original barn, now a loggia, or covered terrace, which is essentially like an outdoor living room in the summer. The patio area is furnished with a table & chairs for dining outdoors.

Go up the front stairs and you are greeted by a good-sized entryway as you cross the threshold. Coming off the entryway is the living room to your left and the eat-in kitchen to your right. This Chianti villa has terracotta floors and beautiful wooden ceiling beams that rise above. The living room has a large working fireplace with comfortable seating and a window the overlooks the property. The kitchen is furnished with a large table for comfortable, casual meals and lively conversation.

There are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a dual king bed and an adjoining bath. The window looks out over the vine-covered hills. It has good closet space, and a little desk. The adjacent master bathroom has a full shower, toilet, bidet, and sink. The view from this particular window is one of the best as you gaze over the olive grove out to Chianti's rolling hills! The finish work in the bathroom is excellent, with beautiful tile details done by master Italian ceramic craftsmen. Over the sink is a large mirror and excellent lighting.

The spacious second bedroom is a bit larger then the master bedroom and has a romantic antique queen-size bed, a large armoire and a window looking east. The beautiful headboard has been passed down in the family generation after generation. The third bedroom has two twin beds and an antique armoire.

There is a laundry room off the hallway with a washing machine. It leads to the large bathroom that has a full size tub with bathtub, a toilet, sink, and bidet. The bathroom sink is set into a spacious cabinet, with plenty of countertop space. Again in this bathroom is beautiful tile with arched details over the large mirror over the sink that are very pretty.

The house is located on the same property with another rental house, Casa Rossa VRBO #36918, which can be rented in conjunction with Casa San Vito for large groups. The houses are approximately 30 meters apart.

About a 10 minute drive away are the tiny villages of San Cristina in Salivolpe and Romita where you can get basic provisions or go for a morning espresso at the local cafe. The nearest major city is San Casciano in Val di Pesa, located between the Greve and Pesa valleys. The town is surrounded in part by an ancient wall dating back to the 14th and 16th centuries. Every Monday morning is market day in San Casciano where you can shop for the freshest produce, meats, fish, and flowers. Be sure to sample the wonderful array of local extra virgin olive oils and honey too. San Casciano has a large supermarket, and numerous small shops if you prefer, such as a butcher, fruit and vegetable shops, post office, bank, gas station. There are numerous good restaurants, pizzerie, a public swimming pool and public tennis courts as well.

The village of Cerbaia, about six miles from San Casciano, has the distinction of having one of Italy's most celebrated, and expensive, restaurants, La Tenda Rossa. It is one of the handful of restaurants in all of Italy to receive a remarkable two stars from in the revered Michelin Red Guide! Just beyond Cerbaia is Montespertoli, famous for its red wines. You won't forget for a minute that you're in the heart of Chianti.

Keep going in the direction from San Casciano towards Florence and you'll find a great cafe in the tiny village of Santa Andrea in Percussina. This village is famous for being the home of the writer-politician Niccolo Macchiavelli.
