Set atop gently rolling hills of vineyards and olive orchards, Casa Rossa is a peaceful Tuscany villa retreat that typifies the beauty, serenity and charm of the Chianti Classico region. The villa is located in the countryside between Florence and Siena, The nearest towns are San Casciano and Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa. Florence, Siena and Greve in Chianti are an easy drive. The nearest towns are San Casciano and Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa.
Casa Rossa or 'Red House' is a restored farmhouse set off a small country road on an estate 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.
You approach the front door of the Tuscany villa from a short flight of stairs. The living room and kitchen are to the left off the main hallway; the bedrooms and bathrooms are to the right; all of these rooms are on one level. The living room is comfortably furnished with a beige sofa and two comfortable easy chairs. In the corner is a television, but with views like these it's unlikely you'll spend time watching TV! The sofa opens up to become a double bed.
The country-style open plan kitchen flows from the living room, perfect for friends and family who want to socialize and cook up a savory meal together. The dining table provides a great place to congregate and enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner. The table expands to seat eight people comfortably.
The kitchen's 'piece de resistance' is the beautiful original wood burning fireplace that truly makes it the hearth of the home. It's a very pleasant room to spend time in while you make a delicious Tuscan-style meal from the fresh ingredients in abundant supply locally. It has a refrigerator with freezer, a four-burner stove, corner double sink, and a buffet serving area. The many cabinets provide good storage space. The countertops are covered in clean off-white tile. Just off the kitchen is a small room that contains the washing machine.
Off the living room is the large terrace with views galore. Enjoy your meals al fresco throughout the warm months. What better place to relax and review the day's events, or simply enjoy life, than lounging on the expansive terrace? The terrace is furnished with eight chairs, two lounge chairs, a table, barbeque and an umbrella. Just below the terrace the vineyards stretch out and down the gently rolling hillside.
Retracing your steps back down the hallway past the front door, there is the main large bathroom to your left. It has a large Jacuzzi-style bathtub for long soaks, a sink with good countertop space and storage in the cabinet underneath, a bidet and a toilet.
Beyond to your left is the large master bedroom with a lovely wrought iron framed queen bed, antique armoire for clothing, nightstands on either side of the bed with small reading lamps. The ceiling rises high above with exposed beams and tiles. In the morning throw open the shutters and take in the fresh country air.
Across the hallway is the second bedroom with an en suite bathroom. It has two comfortable twin beds each with a nightstand and small lamp for nighttime reading, an armoire for clothing and two windows that overlook the property. There is also a rollaway twin bed so the bedroom can sleep three people.
The bathroom that connects to the second bedroom is small but convenient. It has a sink, toilet and shower and bidet.
The bottom part of the house has a small room that is used for winemaking during the grape harvest and is not accessible to guests. We will happily arrange, upon request, to show you the large cantina below the house where antique aging barrels are still used today during the autumn vendemmia - grape harvesting season. We hope you'll oblige and try a bit of the very nice Chianti that is produced on the premises!
The house is located on the same property with another rental house, Casa San Vito VRBO #42825, which can be rented in conjunction with Casa Rossa for large groups. The houses are approximately 30 meters apart.
The Chianti location in one of the most scenic areas of the Tuscany region. Casa Rossa is located at the western edge of the famous Chianti Classico region in Tuscany, between Florence and Siena.

We had a very enjoyable stay. Details accurately described, and welcome and support whilst we were there was exemplary. Highly recommended.
My husand and I stayed with my mother at Casa Rossa for 6 nights in November 2014. The accommodations were perfect for us and both Francesco and his mother were gracious and helpful hosts. The house is exactly as pictured - charming, clean, and comfortable. The views of the Chianti hills from the terrace are splendid indeed! The location is perfect for exploring this region of Tuscany. We made easy drives to Florence, Siena and Pisa, and Francesco recommended off-the-beaten path destinations in Chianti that we thoroughly enjoyed. The local hill town of San Casciano is charming and has excellent restaurants. Our favorite was La Cantinetta del Nonno, recommended by our host. We enjoyed it so much we returned for another meal the next day. One nearby site that we found fascinating is the Amercian World War II cemetery near Florence (only 20 minutes or so from the house). We have already recommended Casa Rossa and Italy Perfect to friends. We were very please with the information we received in advance from Italy Perfect and every detail was attended to. Overall we would give this property an outstanding rating.
Casa Rossa is a very nice house in the heart of Tuscany. The home is very well kept and Francesco the owner was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the beautiful hillsides of Tuscany and just relax.
This villa is situated in a perfect spot atop a hill with a magnificent Tuscan view. The house is well maintained and there is ample space for four persons. The family is sweet and accommodating. The only caution about this rental is that there is no air conditioning so if you are renting in the hot summer months this could be an issue. That aside relaxing on the great terrace cannot be beat! Internet access is intermittent.
We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Rossa . My husband and our. 22 year old daughter where in Italy celebrating her college graduation. The unit is lovely the owner are great very welcoming . Well furnished, quiet lovely veranda spacious for three adults .Great location to travel into Florence or Siena the villages near by offer lots to see and the resturants that the owners recommended were all great . We had a wonderful experience and would recommend this site and this rental.
Casa Rossa was a true gem. The views were stunning! The house was very spacious. The drive to the house was great fun but not for timid drivers. The patio was--well, we LIVED on the patio till the wee hours of the night (especially during the full moon). It was clean and very comfortable. The clothes washer was a bonus. Our host gave us very good recommendations for places to go, bus routes, wineries, etc. There were only two negatives. The listing said there was internet available. The host tried to get us hooked up with a USB thumb-drive that talked to the mobile network. It simply didn't work. Also, the refrigerator was unreliable (it turned on and off). Aside from that, I would HIGHLY recommend Casa Rossa.
Casa Rossa was a idyllic piece of Tuscan property - vineyards and olive groves with mountain background, all viewed from a lovely and large terrace! Morning wake up call from a rooster (nearby farm) and the occasional cuckoo bird. We arrived "home" most evenings before dark, since property in remote area, but what we liked about it too! Loved Fattoria Ristorante in nearby Romita, excellent service and food, and short drive back to casa. Our greeter was most helpful with ideas for day trips and restaurants, and shopping. Market in Romita, though small, was delightful. Also when asked greeter gave us info on casa which was very interesting. Casa Rosa has a warm old world farm house feeling with very modern and clean bathrooms. Cooked in most nights to take in the spectacular view from the terrace. Enjoyed Greve in Chianti and area and Volterra which are not as crowded as more well known, though lovely towns, such as Siena and San Gimignano. Good tip from greeter was to drive to Bagno, which has a large free car park, and bus into Firenze. The blue of the Tuscan sky - The evening stars, plus fireflies in the vineyards, are the best of memories. We hope to visit Italy soon and will definitely use this wonderful site, in the meantime have recommended to friends and will continue to do so. Only negative to mention was refrigerator hard to keep cold, but we managed fine. Thank you for all the literature prior to our departure, it made for a very pleasant transition.
