Overview

Greve House Rental Photos and Description

Rural house, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 7

Have you ever dreamt to spend your holidays in the Tuscan country-side in a romantic, cosy house on a river? Your dream has come true!

Casa Carlotta is an old house, a mill, completely restored, preserving its original image with a warm and cosy atmosphere where the old and the new perfectly meet. It is the ideal place to spend both a relaxing and cultural holiday.

Casa Carlotta is a two-storey house: on the ground floor there is a living-room with a fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen (equipped with all the modern comforts) a toilet and another smaller living-room, in addition to a terrace where it is possible to relax. There is also a garden equipped with tables, chairs and check-chairs where guests can have their meals or relax surrounded by the Tuscan countryside. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with private bathroom and shower and a living-room/studio with a sofa-bed. Guests can enjoy a private terrace overlooking a river, a paradise for reading and relax. The outdoor area also features a barbecue grill and a dining table to enjoy the outdoors while cooking a typical Tuscan product on the grill. The house has a music system with a wide classical music collection. The house is also equipped with an internet mobile wifi router, for guests use. The router is portable, so it can be also used outside the house.

As per beds, you can count on two bedrooms with double beds, another room (studio) with a french bed (in between a double and a single) and a sofa bed in the second living room (which can work as a forth bedroom), for a total of 7 places. In addition we also have one baby cot for guests use (if needed).

The house is extremely fresh even during summer months (it is not unusual to sleep with a blanket even during August).

The house is situated in an old, quiet village called Ponte agli Stolli, in the famous area of Chianti Classico (10 km from Greve), a strategic point to reach the most famous Tuscan cities such as Firenze, Siena and Arezzo. It is the ideal place to spend both a relaxing and cultural holiday. The house is in the middle of nature, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The site is of untouched nature, very panoramic/romantic and charming. Walking distance to the house (200 meters) there are a grocery shops, a bar and a restaurant/pizzeria (extremely good and value for money, only open on saturdays and sundays). The house is very close to Greve in Chianti (around 10 Km, around 10\15 minutes), Florence (35 minutes by train or car), Arezzo (40 minutes by train or car), Siena and San Gimignano (1 hr by car). Nearby the house there are horse riding facilities (1km) and a swimming pool (1km). The house overlook a small river that forms some natural pools where (in the right conditions) it is possible to swim.

The neighborhoods offer wonderful walking itineraries and wine tasting experiences. There are some nice market places close to the house: Greve, Panzano, Arezzo with its antiques market.

Upon request, we can arrange cooking lessons with an English speaking cook who will teach you to prepare a delicious Tuscan lunch or dinner.

The prices include taxes, bed-linen, towels, the consumption of water, gas and power and final cleaning. Expenses for heating will be charged separately (on consumption - to be paid at check-out - no overcharge applied).

At arrival we ask for a deposit of €150 against possible damages and/or losses. This deposit will be refunded at departure, expenses caused by damages or losses may be deducted.

Highly, highly recommend staying here

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this house and the overall experience was wonderful. The booking process was quick and efficient and on top of that, Luca provided us with detailed information before our arrival on local attractions and even on other Italian cities to which we visited later in our trip.

From this home, you are a very easy commute to Siena, Florence, and many of the other hill towns in Tuscany. Also, just a quick drive to the Chianti Classico wine road. But perhaps our favorite was to buy local foods and just enjoy relaxing and eating in the home.

We were a party of 4 but the house could have comfortably slept quite a few more.

From start to finish, the whole experience was great. I would recommend staying here to anyone, and have already done so in just the few short days we have been home. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

This place is a steal!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks here with our family of five and after traveling around Italy for 9 weeks (mostly Tuscany), we can say with confidence that Casa Carlotta is a gem. It was the nicest home we stayed in our entire trip, yet was one of the least expensive. The house is very spacious and in no way feels like a holiday rental, but a cozy home. It is filled with beautiful art, antiques, books, vinyl, etc. that you wouldn’t expect to find in a rental. It is a bit difficult to get a feel for the place from the the pictures as they do not nearly do it justice and make it look smaller than it is, but in reality is a proper family home with two permanent bedrooms (with queen beds) and a 3rd child’s room, but has so many common rooms (3 not including the child’s room) that you could easily have a fourth bedroom for larger groups. The kitchen is a good size with plenty of counter top space for preparing meals and a large fridge/freezer and plenty of cupboards and room for storage (not always a given in Italy). The main bathroom is beautiful. It is very large as well with a full-sized bathtub and separate shower, plus there are two other bathrooms (one with small shower) as well. We won’t go into the great location etc. as we have blogged about it here (fiveitchyfeet.wordpress) and other reviewers have covered it. Suffice it to say Chianti is the Tuscan experience you are looking for and Casa Carlotta is an amazing base from which to explore. The only thing lacking is internet access at the house, which can at times be inconvenient (we did eventually find wifi very close by at Villa la Palagina, which has a very nice restaurant and swimming pool). Thanks very much to Luca and his family for a great stay -- we would return in a heartbeat!

Great stay at Casa Carlotta

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 3 weeks at Casa Carlotta. It is a great location for touring in Chianti. Lots to see and do in the area with great restraunts and wineries close by. The local restraunt which is only open on the weekend does the best pizza in Tuscany and we did try lots of pizza.

The home itself is exactly what you think of when picturing a Tuscan mill. It was comfortable and well presented. The only downfall was mosquitos which i gather is a problem throughout the area. This we overcame easily.

I would recommend this location and Casa Carlotta to everyone.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We would have stayed all summer if we could. After spending the day exploring Tuscany it was wonderful to come back to our home, whip up a feast in the incredible kitchen, with ingredients from the local market and catch the last of the sun on the terracce. We fell in love with the place and will be back.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in such a beautiful spot. As we approached the property, I just kept saying "Wow." Two streams meet in the valley below you with a constant splashing that sings through the night, and a morning spent in the hammock on the terrace, surrounded by birdsong and the sweet smells of rural Tuscany cannot be beat. The house itself is spacious, has many convenient modern upgrades, and as a family of four we found it well suited to our needs. Gorgeous little town, lovely home, unmatched location. Look forward to the moonrise!

The house is situated in an old, quiet village called Ponte agli Stolli, in the famous area of Chianti Classico (10 km from Greve), a strategic point to reach the most famous Tuscan cities such as Firenze, Siena and Arezzo. It is the ideal place to spend both a relaxing and cultural holiday.

The neighborhoods offer wonderful walking itineraries to those who feel the need of leaving aside the frenzy of modern life and of plunging into a dimension out of space and time, characterized by an harmonious relation between Man and Nature, the same that has inspired many famous artists who have lived or visited Tuscany.
