Our home

Our house is on three levels. On the ground floor, which opens onto the garden, there are a spacious living room with kitchen, a study-room and one bathroom. On the second floor there are one double bedroom, a bedroom for children, and a guest bedroom (which we use as a dressing room) and two bathrooms (one with shower and one with bathtub). The garden is the best place where can have a dinner or take an aperitivo in the table we put outside from spring to fall.
At the basement level there is a large garage with laundry. The house was built in 2010, is cool in summer and warm during the winter.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is in the typical Chianti country-side, we are close to San Casciano (1km) and not so far from Firenze(18km).
In the wineyards here around you can taste good wine and find lot of nice typical restaurants. You can also enjoy the italian cosy lifestyle of San Casciano, its bakeries and butcher's shops.
If you prefer cultural activities, nightlife or shopping you just need to take the car or the coach (the coach stop is just in front of the house) to Firenze.
San Casciano is also on the way to San Gimignano (40km) and Siena (54km). In a one day trip you can also visit Lucca, Pisa and reach the seaside. Our house is definitly a good starting point to visit Tuscany.
Not so far from the house (less than 1km) you can also find a swimming pool that during the summer is opened in a olive grove.
Our neighbors are couples with children, very jovial and friendly.
