“Bed and Kitchen Borgo 8” is a nice apartment in the historical centre of San Casciano in Val di Pesa.
It has been recently restored, and it has an independent heating system. We have reserved our guests a private parking spot in the closest public parking house to the apartment.
One master bedroom, one single bedroom, one bathroom with a shower, a kitchen, and a small living room.
Just a few steps away from the apartment, guests can enjoy breathtaking sunsets on a beautiful, terracotta-paved terrace located in the house's spacious backyard facing the Pesa river valley. Moreover, guests can relax and lye in the sun in our olive tree garden, furnished with a table, garden chairs and a lying chair.
San Casciano is a medieval town with well preserved city wals dating back to the Middle Ages, which offers visitors many an opportunity to enjoy their stay. Beautiful art works, delicious food and one of the best wines of the world (Chianti Classico), together with exciting one-day excursions in the surroundings, will make a vacation in San Casciano a unique experience. The local art museum shows works by such artists as Ambrogio Lorenzetti and Coppo di Marcovaldo. Visitors of the medieval church of the Misericordia will have the chance to admire masterpieces such as Simone Martini's Crucifixion Scene.
Florence (15 km), Siena (46 km), San Gimignano (35 km) or Volterra (54 km), as well as Pisa and the whole Chianti area, are easily reached by bus or private car for a one-day excursion.
At first, I stayed one night in his house. His house has enough machine to cook so i'm really satisfied with that. And he gave us fruits and some food. That was really good! His house is cosy and beautiful. I will stay his house if i visit Tuscany again.
Encontramos un departamento pulcro, con víveres de recepción, con utensillos muy adecuados, con mobiliario de buena calidad y decorado con muy buen gusto.
La familia de nuestro anfitrión se ofreció a ayudarnos en todo lo que necesitáramos y así lo hizo. Nos llevaron en auto hasta Florencia para hacer algunos trámites de viaje, y nos esperaron hasta que los terminamos. Nos acercaron al aeropuerto al irnos y, durante nuestra estancia nos proporcionaron todos los datos para hacer nuestra estadía confortable e interesante. Gracias Francesca!
Roberto è stato un ospite perfetto. Ho trovato l'appartamento come descritto: impeccabile, centrale, con posteggio coperto e, soprattutto, centralissimo.
Roberto was a great host! The bus dropped us at the wrong location but he was outside waiting for us and was very accommodating, he had some juices and snacks waiting for us. Roberto went out of his way to assist us with our needs, we were attending a wedding in a villa about a 5 minute drive away and he was so nice about dropping us off and picking us up, even after a miscommunication (lost in translation thing) about the timing for one of the days. We really enjoyed the rooms, the place was very clean, the bathroom was amazingly big for the European standards we had seen along our travels. I can highly recommend Roberto and his accommodation to anyone. :)
Appartamento molto curato, spazioso e comodo. Perfettamente pulito e dotato di tutto. Situato nel centro di San Casciano, tra le colline, è una base perfetta per gli spostamenti tra Firenze e Siena. Il parcheggio coperto è stato davvero molto utile, viste le temperature estive avere la macchina al fresco è stato senz'altro un plus! Siamo restati soltanto una notte ma ci siamo trovati benissimo. La gentilezza, la cordialità e la disponibilità del Sig. Roberto sono state la ciliegina sulla torta! Consigliatissimo!
I highly recommend this Apartment stay in San Casciano ...... Clean, comfortable...... Everything one needs for light cooking. Convenient...... 5mins from bus station, right in the centre of this village of friendly locals. Easy to get to all centres of Tuscany and bussing into Firenze is so cheap..... Euro2.8 ...... The bus trip is relaxing and the views spectacular. Roberto is an exceptional host always ready with advice and help. Highly recommended.
Ciao sono Roberto. Sono lo storico ufficiale del paese di San Casciano e quindi sarò felice di condividere con voi conoscenze ed indicazioni storiche e d'arte dei dintorni.
