    San Casciano in Val di Pesa
    Rental Home –

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...

Before we even arrived for our stay Carlo, Flora and Alessandro were in touch with all sorts of helpful info that we later took advantage of in our 5 night stay. The house was as advertised- great accommodations, beautiful views and conveniently located in town. We did not have a rental car so this made our stay even easier to... more

Il Visciolo is a dream for folks who like an outdoor space and gorgeous views. Hosts Flora, Carlo and Alessandro were gracious, kind, and helpful. The stand alone cottage is very clean, comfortable, and thoughtfully presented, with rose and lavender bushes, olive trees, all around the outdoor patio. A short walk to the centre of the town, San Casciano, it's... more
