“A blissful retreat in Tuscany”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

If you are looking for peace and quiet in the heart of idyllic Tuscan countryside, this house is perfect. We loved it. Plenty of space for everyone. Very clean. Good Wifi to keep the teenagers happy. The TV has only Italian channels but there is a DVD player. Great location for exploring Tuscany. Very easy to access Florence from this location.
Stefania and Fabio very kindly met us at 11.30pm to show us how to find the house and how showed us how to deal with various household matters. The garden is so beautiful and the house sits in a beautiful Olive grove.
I would heartedly recommend to anyone who wants a taste of Tuscany.
Our only criticism would be about the heating. When we arrived at 11.30pm at night, Fabio had the heating on in the house, despite the day having been hot and sunny. He explained that the heating is managed by wood pellets and showed us how to fill it up. He explained that we would be charged 5 euros for every bag we used. Fair enough. As soon as Fabio left about 15 minutes later, we switched off all the heating and did not put it on again as we did not feel the need and we were keen not to spend any additional cash. However, when we left Fabio insisted on charging us 20 euros for wood pellets as he has had the heating on the day we arrived and had used up 4 bags of pellets. As we did not arrive until 11.30pm and switched the heating off immediately, we were not happy about this. We had not been asked if we wished the house to be heated and we basically paid for heating the house for a whole day we weren't even there.
Just be warned. Apart from that, the house was lovely.

Management Response
18 Apr 2016
We gladly hosted this kind family, we are happy that they enjoyed the comforts of home, the tranquility of the place.
We are very sorry for the mix up about the heating. Our previous guests have always appreciated to find the house heated and all the more so because, in this case, the arrival was at 11.30 pm. At the time the temperature was not yet stable and it was necessary to turn the heat on in good time. Upon departure it was only calculated the wood pellet (20 euro) consumed to provide a good reception.We are sorry and we are however available to refund 20 Euros.

“Flavor of Tuscany”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had the pleasure of staying in this country home for one week in early October. The owners, Stefania and Fabio, accompanied us to the property and were extremely through in making sure we were comfortable with all the features of their home. The house it very spacious, clean and included all of the amenities needed for our stay. The location has a excellent view of the Tuscany countryside and truly gives you an Italian flavor of Tuscany. An added plus was the close proximity (5km) to the town of San Casiano in Vel di Pesa where we found an abundance of restaurants, banks and shops. From this home, the towns of Pisa, Lucca, Sienna, San Gimignano as well as Florence and Santa Maria Novella train station are but a short distance away. We loved the house, the location and the Tuscany countryside.

“A truly fabulous holiday in a beautiful "casa"”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Casa nel Chianti is a lovely Tuscan house in a fabulous location in the hills of Tuscan country side. Its spacious and full of charming Italian farmhouse features, furniture and decorations. The views from the balcony overlooking the rolling countryside are beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular. Its in a great location with easy access to San Casciano and further beyond to Florenze, Siena and Volterra. Perfecto!!!
