The property, now completely restored, goes back to the beginning of the 19th century, during which it was part of the farm of Count Bandini, neighboring the village of Sant'Andrea in Percussiva where Niccolò Machiavelli lived.
The farmhouse can host up to eight people, but it's possible to add two more in the lounge which could be considered as another room with its comfortable double sofa bed. One Km of dirt road leads to the fenced property and an automatic gate opens onto the private parking.
Situated to the south of Florence, San Casciano is surrounded by the neighbouring Communes of Scandicci and Impruneta (to the north), Greve (to the east), Tavarnelle Val di Pesa (to the south) and Montespertoli (to the west). In the past it was called "San Casciano a Decimo" because it stood on the tenth milestone of the Roman road. This was another city to become important under Florentine rule, in fact it was granted its first construction by the Florentine Bishops in 1241. There are interesting historical places and lots of cultural events throughout the year.
San Casciano in Val di Pesa is placed in the heart of Chianti area, an agricultural region famous for its wines and extra virgin olive oil. From here you can easily reach the other typical towns of the Chianti Classico area like Greve, Impruneta, Radda, as also Florence that is only 12 kilometres away.
