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.

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. About seven miles away is the ancient hilltop town of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, located between the Greve and Pesa valleys. The town is surrounded in part by an ancient wall dating back to the 14th and 16th centuries and has many restaurants, shops and a two supermarkets.

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 only 30 minutes away, the sites of beautiful Siena, one hour away; the baths of Montecatini nearby, and is a wine aficionados paradise if you want to sample the many excellent varieties of Chianti

Enchantment in the Tuscan countryside

  • 5 of 5

The location and amenities at Casa Rossa inTuscany were beyond our expectations. We were greeted warmly by Francesco who was readily available throughout our stay. The villa was spotless and comfortable with well-appointed bathrooms. And the views from the spacious deck were breathtaking! Grounds were beautiful; walking areas were lined with splashes of colorful blossoms. Groceries were easy to find in nearby towns and Francesco's restaurant recommendations did not disappoint. The beauty and richness of the Chianti region provided us with so many wonderful memories. I highly recommend Casa Rossa!

What a view

  • 5 of 5

What a view. From the patio we could see for miles Chianti country. This is a central location to Siena, Florence, San Gimingnano and Chianti country.

The home was well furnished and cozy. Groceries can be picked up in Tavernalle, that is no more than a 15 minute drive.

You can go to Florence in less than 30 minutes parking south of Florence.

The owner, Francesco was very informative providing several places to eat. We had the best pizza in Tavarnelle. A friend of Francesco owns the pizzeria. Real friendly workers who know English. This is not a tourist place. Lots of local families, but quiet. Try the kiwi pizza. Real different, has a sweet and salty thing that does work. No Hawaiian style pizza there.

The owners also have another place on the property with an enclosed sitting area too. We were provided a charcoal barb and bought steaks and had our wine we picked up at one of our wine tours for a closing, and on to Venice.

We miss it already, but we will be back. We are thinking about a family reunion and rent both places.

Casa Rossa - "Our home" in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Casa Rossa was everything as advertised and more. We are two semi-retired couples and we shared the house in comfort with two nice bedrooms and two baths, a spacious living area and will equipped kitchen. We relaxed on the terrace and took in the green Tuscany fields of grapes and olive trees. If you get up early, you can watch the lights of San Casiano and Tavernalle become absorbed in the red glow of the sunrise. Off to the west you can just see the tower of 1000 year old Castello Di Santa Maria Novella. Casa Rossa is a family owned farm house fully restored by quality craftsman and keeping with the atmosphere of rural Tuscany. It reflects the influence of Francesco Pestelli, an architect with the Commune of Florence, and manager of the family rentals. We had the thrill and honor of meeting Francesco's parents, Franca and Julio, who somehow communicated with us even though we do not speak Italian and they do not speak English. Julio talked about his wine and Franca gave us hints on places to go. Francesco is very fluent in English. The house is located on a gravel farm road about a half mile off a two lane country road with ample room for parking. Having your own car is necessary if you wish to take frequent side trips or buy groceries in nearby towns about 6 km distant. We all had a wonderful time and look forward to returning. Thank you to Francesco & family and thank you ItalyPerfect for a well managed service.

A perfect view of the hills

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at the Casa Rossa. The Casa is charming, spacious and in a splendid location. We enjoyed very much having our meals on the enormous terrace: whether in the early morning sun, or in the cool evening breeze, the view of rows and rows of vineyards and little villages in the distance is gorgeous and peaceful. The Casa is isolated, yet restaurants and shops are easy to reach. And so are many great places to visit: from Florence to Siena and its surrounding hill towns down to the lovely Pienza. Francesco and his mother were perfect hosts: welcoming us with their wine and olive oil, and helping us with suggestions to enjoy the area to the fullest. A highly recommended destination! We will definitely go back.

Casa Rossa

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Rossa. The accommodations were wonderful and matched all that we saw on the internet. We really enjoyed being in the country and away from all the crowds. Our host, Francesco and his mother, could not have been nicer. He made several recommendations for restaurants and local activities. We were very happy with all of them.

The villa was spotless and we were greeted with fresh flowers. Our host checked in with us every few days and made sure everything was okay.

We enjoyed visiting the local towns and getting to know the people. We were fortunate enough to go to Casciano for a food festival and were able to sample many Italian specialties, thanks to our host letting us know about it. There was also the market in Tavernelle. We found everyone in the nearby towns very friendly and pleasant to deal with. We hope to return in a year or so.

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

This villa is terrific! The pictures don't do it justice. The location is great, close to Florence, yet very private, set in the middle of vineyards and olive groves. There are many hilltop towns near by that are wonderful day trips. Best food on our trip was found in San Casciano at Cinque de Vino.
