We stayed at Villa Casanova with a group of 7 for two weeks. The accommodations are absolutely wonderful as was the owner. As mentioned in other reviews, we were warmly greeted by Annalisa and quickly shown the villa and all it’s amenities. The villa provided great private and common areas for our group. The villa is beautifully decorated and yet very comfortable. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in as well as enjoy an Italian cooking class from a local cook. The lower kitchen area has dishwasher and clothes washer. The garden with outdoor eating area was just perfect for dining alfresco as well as enjoying quiet mornings with the sounds of the valley along with coffee.
The location of the villa is perfect for accessing day trips, vespa tours, vineyards and olive groves with multiple castles and beautiful churches all nearby. At the end of a full day, coming back to relax in the immaculately maintained pool and then retreat to your own private courtyard later meal was perfect for our group.
Rufina provides wonderful little shops, for pastries, coffee, pizza and local breads, meats & cheeses. We also found a wonderful “windmill restaurant” in the neighboring town. We feel like we were able to experience the best of busy Italian city life along with the comforts and serenity of the foothills and countryside.
Annalisa was helpful in recommending places for day road trips, local grocery stores, local Chianti producer & other vineyards, someone to do a cooking class with us as well as best ways to use the train system from the area to get to Florence and other places. She was quick to help with any needs or questions with the villa. Of our 3 week trip, this villa and area was a perfect way for us to experience Tuscany. We feel so fortunate finding Villa Casanova and getting to know Annalisa. We have no reservations in saying our time at the Villa Casanova was just what we hoped for! Thank you Annalisa, we are already planning to come back!
This beautiful property is situated in the hills of Tuscany, near the town of Rufina. The grounds are simply lovely with a wonderful pool, and beautiful flowerbeds and greenery. The host, Annalisa, was very helpful and accommodating. She made us feel very welcome.
The house itself is very well-decorated and spotlessly clean. Each bedroom has lovely furnishings, clean bedding and great décor.
There are actually two kitchens, one very large one on the main floor and one on the ground floor - accessible from large courtyard and easy access if you are outside, by the pool! The two bathrooms are modern and large - one has a whole dressing room attached!
There is also a large patio on the upper level; a great place to sit out in the evenings to watch the sun set or just to look out over the valley of vineyards and olive groves.
The villa is close to Rufina, a quaint town with nice shops and a good restaurant. The whole hillside area is beautiful. From Rufina, there is a train to Florence, so you don't have to drive into the city.
We cannot say enough about this lovely property!
This villa is beautifully situated on a lovely property, overlooking vineyards, olive groves and hillsides. The villa itself is clean (spotless), tastefully decorated, well-furnished and has everything you could possibly want. The grounds are beautiful with wonderful gardens and a large pool. We loved it so much the first time, we went back and held our daughter's wedding at the villa! The owner could not have been more helpful and kind. The wedding was wonderful. We long to go back!
Una semana encantadora en un lugar precioso de la profunda Toscana. La casa esta bien cuidada y provista de todas las comodidades. Annalisa (propietaria) es siempre atenta a todo lo que se necesite. No descartamos volver de nuevo.
Nous avons passé un super séjour en famille (7 adultes et 2 enfants). La villa est magnifique et bien agencée pour toute une famille (3 salles de bain 2 toilettes) un billard dans une grande salle, une superbe piscine. tout est très propre. Je conseille de prendre le supplément pour le ménage la villa est très grande. La gare de Rufina (5 mn en voiture) permet d'aller dans toutes les grandes villes à partir de Florence. Très pratique et peu cher. Pour notre part nous sommes aller à Florence, Sienne et Rome en train sur le conseil de la propriétaire Anna-Lisa qui est quelqu'un de super gentille et avenante. Toujours prête à rendre service elle parle le français et est toujours là pour conseiller si besoin est. C'est quelqu'un de charmant. En bref super séjour à conseiller sans problème
Martine et Guy et toute la petite famille
Nous avons passé deux magnifiques semaines dans cette superbe maison pleine de charme et de souvenirs. La maison et son jardin offrent beaucoup d'espace ainsi qu'un équipement complet. A l'écart des circuits touristiques, Rufina associe le calme reposant de la campagne toscane avec une bonne accessibilité de Florence (3o minutes de train). Les enfants ont particulièrement apprécié la très belle piscine et les parties de billard au son des vieux disques vinyl. Toute la propriété est aux petits soins d'Annalisa Celli que nous remercions encore pour son accueil chaleureux, son efficacité discrète et son hospitalité.
Grazie mille !
