Overview

Castelnuovo Berardenga Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa with Private Garden, Panoramic Views and Large Private Pool for the Casale

Casina delle Rose in Casale Casina on the Tenuta di Villa d'Arceno is a free standing Villa with private garden. Perched on a hilltop with views of the surrounding vineyards, olive groves, the towers of Siena and Mt. Amiata in the distance, it is an ideal place to spend your Tuscan holiday.

Upon your arrival you will find a welcome basket that provides all the necessities for your first evening in your Chianti home away from home. The villa is a restored traditional Tuscan barn with a gourmet kitchen and dining area, and comfortable living room with wood burning fireplace downstairs, and two en suite bedrooms upstairs. There is a 'cantina' which contains the washing machine and dryer along with space to hang laundry. The terrace has a dining table, cabana umbrella and lounges for your use and enjoyment.

A typical day might begin with a quiet early morning swim in the pool at Casina, followed by a cappucino and pastry at the Bar Centrale in Castelnuovo Berardenga where you can plan your day's activities. Perhaps wine tasting in Montepulciano and Montalcino, with a stop for lunch in Pienza. Or the 'Della Francesco' tour to Arezzo and the surrounding countryside including Cortona. A more adventuresome day might include Assisi and Gubbio a wonderful town not normally on anyone's list of places to see. At the end of the day a refreshing swim followed by a glass of wine on your back terrace while you watch the sun set over Siena. Now you are ready for a delicious dinner at one of the many fine restaurants close by, then back home and a final glass of wine under the stars.

Perhaps you wish to relax after a long journey. The historic Arceno estate is a lovely place to explore on foot or by bicycle. There are two bicycles available for your enjoyment (please make use of the helmets). There are also numerous guidebooks and maps available on Tuscany and further afield for your perusal while at our home.

We have had a home in Chianti for over 17 years and have wonderful memories of the times we have shared here with family and friends. We hope you will treasure your memories of your time here, too.

Why Mary Warner chose Chianti Senese

Living and working in Italy in the 1990's gave us the opportunity to discover and enjoy the people and life style of this fantastic area. Coming to Tuscany and Chianti on holiday was so special that we were owners here in Villa d'Arceno within weeks of our first visit to this wonderful part of the world.

What makes this villa unique

Casina delle Rose is located in the unique estate of Villa d'Arceno a historic Tenuta covering a approximately 2,500 acres (1,000 hectares) of forest, vineyards and olive groves along with traditional Tuscan farmhouses and one of the most beautiful cypress avenues in Italy. This area is rich in the history of Italy and central to discovering the beauty of Tuscany and the major cities of Siena and Florence.

Just gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect home for our ten-day stay in Tuscany! It was ideally situated – private and quiet, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, with gorgeous views…and all the while, less that half an hour’s drive to Siena (and even less to some of the most beautiful villages in the region)!

Mary and her husband have restored this old barn with a great deal of love and attention. The kitchen is beautifully designed and better stocked than my kitchen at home and it was such a joy to cook in. The open-plan ground floor and two ensuite bedrooms upstairs are tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished and we could not have been more relaxed in this amazing space.

There is no room to describe all of the wonderful places we visited or things that we did, but here are a few…devoured gourmet ice cream and the best pappa al pomodoro I have ever eaten just down the hill in Castelnuovo Berardenga, strolled across the River Arno after marveling at Michelangelo’s David in Florence, tasted six exquisite Brunellos from 2010 while sitting in the middle of Montalcino’s hilltop fortress, wandered the annual chocolate festival in Perugia. Too many fantastic memories to recount!

Honestly, though, this review would be sorely incomplete without mentioning one of the highlights of our entire trip – the late afternoons we spent on the house’s west-facing terrace, watching the sun set golden and red over the mountains behind Siena. A glass of wine later and the hills were dotted with beautiful constellations of village lights under the stars. Such spectacular moments are what made our vacation truly memorable and what will certainly bring us back to Casina delle Rose again and again. We cannot wait for another visit in 2016!

Awesome Villa, pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

The Casa delle Rose is perfectly located in the Tuscany region. The cities/ villages of Florence, Sienna, Montepulciano (a must see) are all within an one hour drive, a TomTom GPS is highly recommended. Before arriving detail instruction on how to find the Villa were sent by e-mail and they were accurate and we did find the Villa without having to call for further instructions.

Upon our arrival we were met by Barbara, the representative for Mary & Tom, a beautiful and useful welcome basket (wine & pasta etc.) was there, a perfect way to start your Tuscany adventure and Barbara answered all our questions.

Pictures do not do it justice to this villa, the views were amazing of the olives trees, vineyards and mountains.

We were fortunate to be there when the grapes were being cultivated and observed the wine making process.

The winery Tenuta di Villa d'Arcenio is approx. 20 minute walk from the villa, you go by a road way lined with cypress trees which is something right out of a movie.

The facilities are great, laundry, wifi, TV with plenty of CD movies and a well equipped kitchen. You don't have to fight over which bedroom you would like both are fantastic and have an amazing view.

You always have some reservations when booking a villa/house from an internet site, will it live up to our expectations, well I can attest the Casa delle Rose surpassed our expectations.

It doesn't get any better than having a glass of Chianti Classico wine while enjoying the sunset. 2015 is expected to be a very good vintage but we will have to wait 18 months before the 2015 Chianti Classico will be ready.

Also important is to take a day trip visit to the local wineries, we were fortunate to find a small winery off the beaten path called “La Ripa”, the house which is part of the winery was once owned by the father of Monna Lisa in the late 1400's. The owner of the “La Ripa” is a very interesting gentlemen to speak with. It is these encounters that make a trip memorable.

If we ever get the opportunity to return to the Tuscany region we will definitely return at the Casa delle Rose.

Serene location and spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying on the Villa Arceno estate and this visit did not disappoint. Being centrally located, close to Sienna and the motorway, makes this location very convenient and a good base location to take day trips in the greater area. The home is set up on a hill and far enough away from the nearest home to really provide a feeling of privacy and tranquility. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets on the patio and the views overlooking the estate. The kitchen is well equipped to satisfy even the most serious of home cooks, and the laundry facilities in the cantina really made packing for this trip easy and light! Of course Barbara is a fantastic property manager, providing for all of the things one would need to jump right into enjoying the villa. We would definitely return and recommend to our friends.

Owner's Response: Jeannette, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Tom and I have finished the olive harvesting we have a great crop this year. So, if you return there will be an "estate bottled" oil to welcome. Ciao, Mary

spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a house with spectacular view TO SAY THE LEAST! We were the first to rent it and the game was : "what could be missing in this house?". When we left after 10 lovely days, the general answer was "nothing"!.

It is very well organized, comfortable, well located and in a magnificent private estate... The lady in charge of the welcome was extremely helpful and friendly. We will come back.

Best place in Chianti region. Just gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

I was born in Italy and then moved to New York years ago. I know Tuscany very well (I got married there, actually right in the "Tenuta Villa Arceno), and there's nothing better than the Chianti region. The house is spectacular, incredibly well maintained, there's nothing missing (from cutleries to TV, Internet. etc.) and is so peaceful. The owners are wonderful and promptly reply to any needs you may have. And there's a property manager you can contact at any moment (they even have a cell phone at your disposal just for that!!!). As said above, I've been in the area many times, and can't recommend enough this special house. It's a true Tuscany dream. Total privacy, amazing view, the deck looks right over the sunset. What else can I say?! Close to a bunch of great restaurants (cheap and expensive). This is a true hidden gem.
