Hochzeitsreise

  • 5 of 5

Direkt nach unserer Hochzeit haben meine Frau und ich eine ganz wunderbare Hochzeitsreise im Casa Rossella verbracht. Sogar nach nun 3 Monaten reden wir noch immer mit Bewunderung über diese ganz besondere Lokation. Am allerwichtigsten war: Wir haben uns willkommen gefühlt in jeder Minute und sogar vor unserer Ankunft. Weil wir schüchterne Leute sind, ist das nicht so einfach, uns dieses Gefühl zu vermitteln. Aber Rossella und besonders ihre Verwalterin Barbara haben nicht nur einfach einen guten Job gemacht, sondern sie haben sich mit Herz und Einfühlungsvermögen gekümmert. Sie bereiteten Dinge vor, waren erreichbar und haben Abstand gehalten, wo immer wir es brauchten - sie haben sich angepasst, ohne dass wir etwas gesagt hätten. Auch der gemeinsam genutzte Pool war gut: Alle anderen Eigentümer respektieren Gäste ebenso und heißen sie willkommen. Wie gesagt, wir sind etwas schüchtern. Wenn wir es nicht gewesen wären, hätten wir mit Sicherheit die Gelegenheit gehabt, Freunde zu gewinnen, nicht nur Bekanntschaften.

Zusammengefasst war der Aufenthalt im Casa Rossella unsere schönste Zeit in der Toskana überhaupt - nachdem wir nun mehrere Jahre für den Sommerurlaub nach Italien reisen, besonders oft in die Toskana.

Die Anlage mit dem Appartement ist einfach wunderbar: Die Landschaft ist überwältigend. Der Pool hat eine wirklich sinnvolle Größe - wir waren immer in der Lage, mehrere Bahnen hintereinander zu schwimmen. Der Garten ist gepflegt und sieht wunderbar aus, auch wenn er unter der besonderen Hitze im Jahr 2017 gelitten hat.

Alles in der Anlage ist in bestimmter Weise exklusiv und würdig, ohne dass dieses Überhand nimmt - wir haben uns so gefühlt, dass wir es auch nutzen durften. Besonders im Appartement selbst haben wir uns so gefühlt, als hätte Rossella dafür gesorgt, dass wir die Erlaubnis haben, diese exklusive Unterkunft zu nutzen. Es ist so persönlich eingerichtet mit konsistentem Stil, dass wir dachten, wir hätten einen Teil von Rossella kennengelernt, ohne dass sie da war.

Ich kann nur sagen: Vielen dank für diese Gelegenheit. - Sie war mehr als ihren Preis wert. Wir haben mehr für das Anmieten anderer Anlagen ausgegeben aber nur eine kommt an Rossellas heran! Nochmal: Es ist nicht nur die Anlage. Es ist der Geist, mit dem Rossella und Barbara sich kümmern. Besonders bei Barbara hatten wir den Eindruck, dass die Verwaltung für sie eine Freude ist. Das ist unbezahlbar. Wir wünschen Rossella und Barbara eine Menge liebe neue Gäste.

Wonderful, relaxing and serene... Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying at Casa Rossella in the Chiante region. A very charming villa with a very comfortable living space and kitchen. The drive through the vineyards and olive groves set the scene for a very enjoyable stay. Barbara was fantastic; introducing us to the villa, the region and interesting sites to explore. We loved being near the village of Castelnuovo Berardegna. We look forward to our return someday soon.

Everything was perfect and the property was unbelievable. Communication was excellent and the villa was very quaint. The private patio was very nice as well. We would definitely recommend this property.

Amazing villa with stunning views

Stayed here for 3 nights- Barbara was such a kind hostess. Loved sitting in the garden, walking the fields and lying by the pool.

A lovely Tuscan villa with all the extras!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the villa after a long day of traveling. We had a bit of trouble finding it but, Barbara, the property manager met us in town so we could follow her to the villa. Much appreciated! Once inside, she explained everything and gave us lots of info for our stay. The villa itself was gorgeous! So sweetly decorated, with everything we could need. Barbara and Rossella left us with enough food and wine so we didn't have to do a thing our first night and morning there. San Gusme and Castelnuovo are 2 little towns nearby. Our only regret is that we did not discover the restaurants there sooner, since we would have spent more time in these 2 places and less time driving to the more well-known hill towns. Our only wish was that there wasn't a market/town within walking distance but, as noted earlier, Castelnuovo and San Gusme are a 10 and 5 minute drive respectively. We loved visiting the winery/olive oil place right down the dirt road from the villa. Overall, a wonderful experience, beautiful property (the pool and the grounds were spectacular too....pool long enough to swim laps in!), and very organized and gracious host and property manager.
