About The Experience

Extensive views over the Chianti Classico hills can be gazed upon in every direction from this farmhouse. A family or group of friends will enjoy the comfortable furnishings, shared swimming pool, and great location. Florence is a short drive away, which means this farmhouse is just the place for those who seek the countryside solitude and the excitement of the city.

Location Description

This property is located one kilometer from San Casciano, a small town with a few shops, restaurants, and markets. One of the best things about this villa is that it is a short distance from Florence, a city rich in architectural and artistic masterpieces. Visit the Piazza San Giovanni, also known as the religious heart of the city, and you’ll see the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, built in the 15th century. Other marvelous attractions include the Ponte Vecchio where you can go shopping, the Accademia Gallery full of Florentine paintings, and of course the Uffizi Gallery. In addition to Florence, San Gimignano and Siena are also within day trip distance.

Nearby Attractions: Florence (Ponte Vecchio, Il Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, restaurants, Via de’ Tornabuoni (shopping), Piazza San Giovanni), San Gimignano (medieval towers), Siena (Il Palio summer festival, enotecas, Piazza del Campo, art museum, Piazza del Duomo), Arezzo (Piazza Grande, flea market, Santa Maria della Pieve, annual festivals)

Two good restaurants within walking.
Check In Out:
We were early and no one was available to greet us so we waited for an hour and the owner's daughter arrived to show us the house. A few things didn't work and they were replaced in a short period of time.
