“Fantastic Tuscany”

We received a very warm welcome from Flora and Allessandro upon our arrival at this lovley villa. It was excatly as advertised, FLora had a lovely afternoon tea prepared, complete with local wine. The villa was equipt with everything you could possibly want, even bus timetables for the quick trip into FLorence, information about the local markets and recommended local restruants. Tours to other Tuscan cites are easily booked from San Casanio.
The local village was a great place to wander around, the local restruants varied in food styles but all we tried were great, the supermarket within walking distance.
WiFi available.
FLora ,Alessandro and Carlo were very helpful without being intrusive.
Woudl deffinately recommend this villa.
The loft area would not suit anayone with leg/.knee problems

Thank you very much for the nice words. Regarding the English speaking tv news programs: we do have, but to see them you have to select the Satellite as source, they are not among the analog TV stations.

We have just returned from spending a week at "il Visciola". When we arrived we were welcomed very warmly by Flora and Allesandro. They had afternoon tea ready for us which was lovely as we had driven from Sorrento. The Villa and surroundings are fantastic and well looked after. We enjoyed our stay so much, the Village caters for all your needs and the restaurants are fantastic. Bus transport to Florence is excellent. I would recommend this Villa and a place to stay.

“Our home in Tuscany”

My wife and I stayed at Il Visciolo with my parents from September 17-24, 2011. The property looked great on the website and turned out to be even better when we arrived. The location, in San Casciano, allows for easy access to Florence, yet is far enough away to provide the feel of rural Tuscany and the Chianti region. The owners, Flora and Allessandro, are wonderfully kind people who helped us in any way they could during our stay. We would not hesitate to recommend Il Visciolo and hope to return ourselves someday !
