Enjoy

Picture perfect views of the rolling Chianti hillsides, vineyards, olive orchards.

Casa San Vito is a gracious restored Tuscan farmhouse. Care was taken in the remodeling process to retain the many charming rustic and charming features while providing modern comforts and conveniences. The house has spectacular views of the peaceful countryside where vineyards abound in this majestic Chianti setting. The house was named after the tiny San Vito parish church that is nearby. The upaved road that runs in front of the house is known as "San Vito di Sopra" (San Vito High Road) and the paved road below that leads to the turn off to the property is called "San Vito di Sotto" (San Vito Low Road).

We enjoyed going for walks right from the villa's door, which offered more of the amazing views also available in every direction from the villa itself.

Casa San Vito is located at the western edge of the famous Chianti Classico region in Tuscany, between Florence and Siena. The landscape is a patchwork quilt of vineyards, the occasional tall cypress tree, umbrella pines and the grey-green of olive groves.

According to one Italian legend, farmers used to plant a cypress tree to announce the birth, and subsequent marriage eligibility, of each daughter. When the cypress tree reached viewing height across the countryside it was a signal to suitors that papa was ready to find a match for his bella figlia (daughter)! While this tale has dubious origins, it`s certainly an amusing thought as you gaze across the cypress-dotted hills spotting a lone tree here or an entire row there.

Location

Casa San Vito is located in the countryside between Florence and Siena. The nearest towns are San Casciano in Val di Pesa and Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, just a short drive away where you will find restaurants, grocery stores.

The nearby town of San Casciano is a handy base for groceries, restaurants and shopping.

Nearby are the small villages of Romita, Tavarnelle and San Cristina in Salivolpe and the ancient hilltop town of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, located between the Greve and Pesa valleys. This scenic town is surrounded by an ancient wall dating back to the 14th and 16th centuries and has beautiful views looking down over the Chianti countryside. Every Monday morning is market day in San Casciano where you can shop for the freshest produce, meats, fish, cheese and flowers. Be sure to sample the wonderful array of local extra virgin olive oils and honey too. San Casciano and Tavarnelle both have supermarkets, and numerous small shops if you prefer, such as a butcher, fruit and vegetable shops, post office, bank, gas station. Tavarnelle has a farmer`s market on Thursday mornings. In San Casciano there are numerous good restaurants, pizzerie.

The nearby village of Cerbaia, about 6 miles from San Casciano, has the distinction of having one of Italy`s most celebrated restaurants, La Tenda Rossa. It is one of the handful of restaurants in all of Italy to receive a remarkable two stars from the revered Michelin Red Guide!

Just beyond Cerbaia is Montespertoli, famous for its red wines. You won`t forget for a minute that you`re in the heart of Chianti. Keep going in the direction from San Casciano towards Florence and you`ll find a great cafe in the tiny village of Santa Andrea in Percussina. This village is famous for being the home of the writer-politician Niccolo Macchiavelli

The house is conveniently situated in one of the best parts of the Chianti region of Tuscany for daily excursions to see the famous towers of San Gimignano, the sites of beautiful Siena, the baths of Montecatini, and is a wine aficionados paradise if you want to sample the many excellent varieties of Chianti! You can even make a day trip to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa as it`s only a 1.5 hour drive away, as is the graceful town of Lucca.

Exterior

Casa San Vito is off a small country road on a vineyard property that produces a lovely Chianti wine from the robust San Giovese, Malvasia, Trebbiano and Canaiolo grapes grown there. Additionally, the estate grows olives that are pressed into an excellent extra virgin olive oil.

Interior

On the ground floor set into cool stone walls is what was once the original barn, now converted into a loggia, or covered patio, which is essentially an outdoor living room in the summer. Go up the front stairs and you are greeted by a wide hallway as you cross the threshold. The living room is to the left and the eat-in kitchen is to the right. Down the hallway are the bedrooms and bathrooms.

We loved our morning coffee on the patio with those beautiful views and eating dinner in the warm, cozy kitchen.

The house has terracotta floors and original wooden ceiling beams. There are screens on the windows. The living room has a large working fireplace with comfortable seating, a sofa bed, and a window that overlooks the property.

The kitchen has a large table that expands to seat eight people for comfortable, casual meals and lively conversation.

There is a laundry room off the hallway with a washing machine. 

The villa was very clean, with modern appliances and the location was perfect to explore the hill towns of Tuscany.

If you like the "sister" house, Casa Rossa across the lawn, you`ll love Casa San Vito! Plus it has the added benefit of a third bedroom.

The house does not have a swimming pool. In addition, please note that opposite Casa San Vito, across the yard, is Casa Rossa , another vacation rental villa. Because of its proximity it`s very convenient for two families or friends that want togetherness but want their privacy too. The two houses are 30 meters (32 yards) apart, separated by a grass lawn. The road leading to the house is very lightly traveled.

Bedrooms

The master bedroom has a divisable king bed which can be made up as a king or two twins and an ensuite bath. The window looks out towards the vine-covered hills. It has a pretty antique dresser. 

The spacious second bedroom has a queen bed and window looking east. We have dubbed this the Romantica bedroom because of the lovely heirloom bedstead.

The third bedroom is small but very functional and has two twin beds and an antique armoire.

Bathrooms

The master bathroom has a shower, toilet, bidet and sink. The view from this particular window is one of the best as you gaze over the olive grove out to Chianti`s rolling hills. On a clear day you can see all the way to Florence.

The second bathroom has a jetted bathtub, toilet, sink and bidet and a hand-held shower spray attachment. The bathroom sink is set into a spacious cabinet, with plenty of countertop space and storage space in the cabinet underneath.

Our Guest Reviews

Clean roomy country house
Oct 2019

The house was clean with comfy beds and great bathrooms. The owner was great to work with and gave us lots of good tips on where to eat and find markets. The property is farther out of town than anticipated but an easy drive to Florence. It is on the wrong side of the mountain range for the Chainti Classical wine trail but we still found great wineries and wonderful food. If you like being in the countryside with the perfect Tuscan view you will love this property.

If you are looking for an authentic villa in the wine country this is it!
Oct 2019

If you are looking for an authentic villa in the wine country this is it! Beautiful views, nice accommodations. Finding it the first time was a bit of a challenge since our flight was delayed and we didn’t arrive In Florence until 23:30. This property is best to find in the light , if possible. From here we visited Lucca, Volterra and San Gimignano. There were local villages where food and groceries were available. The owners were very responsive and ready to help.

Dee K., USA

Beautiful property!
Sep 2019

Francesco was a fantastic host. His property was beautiful and well maintained. The villa had all the modern conveniences you would want without sacrificing the authenticity of a Tuscan villa. The views of the vineyard and olive trees were beautiful. I highly recommend this villa and we will return for our next visit.

Lesa P, US

Great country house
Sep 2019

Beautifully restored farm house. Great attention to detail. In the middle of farm land, so very quiet. Owner very accommodating. Not close to food stores or restaurants, but has a great kitchen. Would recommend this property.

Fantastic
Aug 2019

Casa San Vito is a very nice house to stay in. Also the place around it is really beautiful.
You can be around the house and really feel that you are in Tuscany.
We went often for a day out but we take our meal in the nice garden of Casa San Vito.

When we arrived we were welcomed by a very nice lady who gave us a first look around.
Francesco the owner of the place knows well were you need to go and gave us a lot of information about the nicest places to go to.

We recommend Casa San Vito to all the people with kids to go to.

The house is perfectly situated for a visit to Florence, Siena, or anywhere in between.
Jun 2019

The house is perfectly situated for a visit to Florence, Siena, or anywhere in between. It has a great selection of dishes and cooking dishes. Francesco was a very amiable host and had excellent suggestions. The house has very few neighbors and was very quiet. It is what I have imagined in a Tuscan home - on top of a hill in the middle of olive orchards and vineyards with great valley views. Due to its location and views, it is a few minutes away from shopping. Navi was very helpful for our visit - for shopping, sightseeing, and finding our way back.

Casa San Vito in Val de Pesa
Jun 2019

We spent 5 days recently at Casa San Vito. The house was as described on line - no surprises! It is in a lovely hill town in Chianti, a short drive south of Florence. You definitely need a car for this area, and a very good, detailed map and GPS. Francesco was there to meet us when we arrived and was very welcoming. He provided lots of good information about things to do in the surrounding towns, including markets to visit, wineries nearby, and some great restaurants to try. I would not hesitate to recommend Italy Perfect to a friend. They had a great response time to my emails and one panicked phone call just before arrival at the Villa. Very friendly and professional group of people.
[We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your great review! The Italy Perfect Team]

Casa San Vito
Jan 2019

What a wonderful, peaceful place to stay.The views in the morning were spectacular ! Francesco met us at the house at the exact time arranged and gave us several recommendations throughout our stay. When we arrived, the accommodation was spotless! The house is located in a perfect area of Tuscany so you can make day visits to Florence and nearby towns. Certainly a car is a must.
I would highly recommend this property for those that are adventurous and willing to explore.
[Thank you for your kind review. We are thrilled that you liked your stay at Casa San Vito. The Italy Perfect Team]

Debbie, Colorado

Beautiful property
Nov 2018

The property has a beautiful view of the wine country. Nice outside patio for eating ( we couldn't use because it rained almost every day we were there. The greeter was very responsive and helpful. The biggest negative is the property is 20 minutes on one lane roads away from the nearest town to get a coffee in the morning. Still an enjoyable stay as a base to visit Siena and some nice wineries in the area.
