Bella Il Visciolo

We spent a week in October 2013 at Il Visciolo enjoying the wonderful hospitality of Flora and Alessandro. The villa is exactly as it is portrayed on the Villa's website. Fully self contained, spotlessly clean and located in a very serene and peaceful setting. Location is ideal - 35 minute bus ride to center of Florence. 5 minute walk to center of San Casciiano and close to a large Coop supermarket. San Casciiano is charming and walkable with several restaurants and shops. The hospitality of the owners was exceptional - friendly, helpful but not intrusive. We were welcomed with a bottle of excellent wine, olive oil, olives from their orchard, crackers and cheese. When we mentioned that we were not planning to go out for dinner, Flora quickly provided some wild boar salami, fresh tomatoes and fresh bread for our dinner. Flora was an English teacher and, of course, is fully bilingual. Very warm and outgoing, she provided helpful information and hints during our week stay. Overall, our experience with Il Visciolo was outstanding in all respects. Highly recommended without reservation. Thank you Flora and Alessandro!!

Heaven in Tuscany

We stayed at Il Visciolo for our 30th wedding anniversary. We were looking for a cozy, romantic place with great views, walking distance of a small village with wonderful food, good wines, and helpful hosts nearby to provide directions and recommendations. We found everything at Il Visiciolo! Although it rained a bit during our stay, it did not dampen our enthusiasm for this little piece of heaven nestled in the rolling hills of Tuscany. We highly recommend it! Thanks to Flora, Alessandro & Carlo, our helpful hosts!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Guestbook

Four people of 50+ rented a car in Firenze and drove to San Casciano Val di Pesa where we had taken Il Visciolo for a week - an old stone/brick barn turned into a beautiful house by owner Flora. The house was carefully chosen: We wanted a place not too far from downtown of a small place, we wanted kitchen facilities (and we did some superb cooking together!) we wanted two double bedrooms and preferably a nice view. We had it all and more! San Casciano is not among the most spectacular Tuscan towns per se, but it has a nice atmosphere, beautiful surroundings some good restaurants, a reasonable array of stores and perfect location for roaming around Toscana. The house had all the facilities. The kitchen even had a gas stove! There were plenty of towels. Guide books. Firewood. Bar-be-que. The owners even had some food for us on arrival. Everything worked. Everything was of a high quality. One of the bedrooms has a much better view than the other, so this would need to be considered if there are two couples. The owners live only a few seconds away and they were open to making suggestions about the area and letting us know where things were in the house. We had a great time in Toscana. We enjoyed the house and the service. We would rent the house again.
