    Property description
    San Casciano in Val di Pesa
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    The holiday house is located 300 metres from San Casciano in Val di Pesa centre. Facing the open country from a dominant position, it offers the comforts of a town life and the beauty of the Chianti landscape opening on hills with vineyards and olive trees.

There is a frequent, cheap and fast coach service to and from Florence historic centre that is just 16km away. Coach service connects San Casciano als...
