Tuscan farmhouse with great views of the Chianti hills, vineyards, olive orchards. Enjoy an authentic, affordable Tuscany experience an easy drive from Florence.

Casa San Vito 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 unpaved 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).


Casa Rossa is only 25 minutes south of Florence and 45 minutes to 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 vineyards on property produce 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.


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. It is one flight of stairs to enter the villa. 

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, and a window that overlooks the property.

The villa does not have a swimming pool. Across the yard is Casa San Vito 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.
