Hi, I'm Flora!

I am a retired teacher of English and French, living with my husband in a farmhouse on the same property of the rented house. My son lives in Florence.
We lived in Florence till 12 years ago. When we bough the property, we appreciated its location: it feels countryside, but it's very close to the centre of the village. The buildings had been abandoned for a long time and we completely restored them reusing all the original materials and keeping the style of Florentine's countryside houses.

San Casciano is very quell placed, it is full Tuscan countryside but you can reach the centre of Florence in half an hour.
Restaurants in the village are reasonably priced and frequented mostly by locals. Staying here, you will feel the real Tuscan life of the Florentine province, not crowded with tourists.

Here is my property:

Bella Il Visciolo

“ Excellent ”
December 22, 2013
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!!
