Comfortable houses in the Chianti, ideal for families who love peaceful and relax
LE BALZE DI ROSENNANO offers two recently tastefully and elegantly restructured houses for seasonal renting in the cosy village of Rosennano (height 580 m above sea level), part to the Municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga. This small village, placed on the last Southern mountains of Chianti, just a few kilometres from the lovely town of San Gusmè and only 35 Km far from Siena, overlooks the oak and chestnut-trees populated valleys and the shaded woods on the side of Monte Luco and on the other side the vineyards and olive trees fields extending until the region of the Crete Senesi (the so called Moon Landscape) with its always different shimmering sceneries according to the season. The view that you can admire from our houses is extended for more than 60 km. Mount Amiata, the hill of Radicofani and the top of Mount Cetona, at the borders with Umbria, are the best background to this spectacular Tuscan landscape.
A Villa with private garden (VILLA LE BALZE restructured in 2013) and an independent two floors house (CASA DELLA CORTE restructured in 2015) are available for rental for nature, tranquillity and peace lovers, willing to spend their time in these uncontaminated places surrounded by nature. All houses have access to a great park of 1 hectare ca. with olive, fruit trees and Mediterranean plants
A series of information about the most attractive places, touristic sites, wine and food pathways, trekking and bike itineraries (on street or mountain bike, with equipment rental) can be found directly in the house. You can also be provided with access to the neighbouring Rapolano spa or visits with wine tasting to some of the most beautiful cellars of Chianti.
TO GET TO Rosennano you have to drive for 2 Km on a dirt road accessible to every type of vehicle. In the village there are no shops or restaurants. The latter ones are less than 6 km far in the small village of San Gusmè or in the other twin village of Montebenichi. Shops and supermarkets can be found instead in Castelnuovo Berardenga (ca 10 Km). Siena at one side (West) and Montevarchi on the other one (East) are indeed the closest towns – both ca. 30 minutes by car.

About SEBASTIANO MOSTERTS
With the goal to share things I like, since many years I rent my own houses in Italy and France. Some years ago I felt in love with a small, abandoned village in the Chianti region. This spectacular place ravished me for its quietness, peaceful and, above all for the gorgeous view we can enjoy from its sightseeing. I decided then to renovate some building in order to give to the village a new life and to offer people a peaceful place where to live (some units are for sale) or only to spend a short, relaxing holiday.
SEBASTIANO MOSTERTS purchased this Villa in 2008

The house is incredibly convenient and the views from every place are breathtaking.
Sebastiano was very kind and helpful.
Definitely a place to come back.
Beautiful villa in stunning countryside with a wonderful host
Our family party (of 7) rented Villa Balze for a weekend at the beginning of October as two of our party were participating in L'Eroica bike ride in Gaiole.
The villa itself is exactly as described/pictured and was very clean on arrival. It's a beautiful property and has everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. The spacious terrace offers the most spectacular views and the pool (which only one of us had the chance to try during the course of our hectic, all-too-short weekend!) is on its own separate, private level below the villa.
Our host, Sebastiano, could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble; he was very understanding on our first night when we arrived later than anticipated; he was a great source of local/travel information; he arranged the booking for a wonderful fish supper in La Porta del Chianti in San Gusme and even provided some engine oil for one of our 'thirsty' hire cars!
Communication was super friendly and easy; Sebastiano was always available to answer any queries. A very lovely, relaxed man :-)
We would happily recommend this villa and would love to return at some point and have the opportunity to spend longer to properly explore the region, as well as staying put and relaxing in the gorgeous villa and its grounds.
Grazie mille for everything, Sebastiano! :-)
Thank you Sam for a so complete and positive feedback! It has been a pleasure to have you and your family, as nice and friendly guests in my Rosennano house. I'm always happy to share with other sensible people my love for this beautiful region. I look forward to meeting you again.
Lovely house with gorgeous views in rural Tuscany!
My family of six spent four wonderful days at Casa Le Balze. Communication with Sebastiano prior to our arrival was smooth and helpful. He was a great host, willing to tell us about his restoration projects and the surrounding area. The house had everything that we needed. The kitchen is huge! And it is well-equipped. The first time I've ever stayed in a rental with better knives than my own. Undoubtably, the best thing about the house is the view though. Simply incredible. Maybe we will return one day. Thank you Sebastiano!
Superbe propriété Idéale pour la découverte de la région de Sienne
Maison vaste et très bien équipée avec vues spectaculaires, idéalement située pour la découverte de Sienne et des régions autour (Chianti, Crete Senesi Val d'Orcia...) ; très bon accueil par le propriétaire. Vivement recommandé aussi pour un séjour reposant dans un petit village typique.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié.
Philippe, Armelle, et les 3 ados.
moi aussi j'ai très apprécié vous avoir à Rosennano. Une famille d'hôtes idéal !
J’espère à bientôt. Sebastiano
Prachtig gerenoveerde woning met uitstekende faciliteiten en smaakvol ingericht. Prachtig uitzicht.
We hebben vijf nachten met vijf volwassenen en een kind hier verbleven. De locatie is heerlijk rustig en stil. Sebastiano is erg aardig en hulpvaardig. Wij raden het huis zeker aan.
PAIX ET SERENITE
Ce n’est pas facile d’exprimer notre joie d'avoir vécu en famille une semaine de paix et de sérénité au sein de Casa Le Balze.
Nos yeux ont été comblés par la Toscane à nos pieds et à perte de vue, et nos oreilles par le chant des cigales en fête....et le chant du coq toujours fidèle à son devoir....
La demeure de Sebastiano a une âme qui a inspiré toutes nos conversations et nous a fait rêver Merci de nous avoir donné cette opportunité de partager ces moments de vie dans cet endroit merveilleux
The small village of Rosennano, placed on the last Southern mountains of Chianti, just a few kilometres from the lovely town of San Gusmè and only 35 Km far from Siena, overlooks the oak and chestnut-trees populated valleys and the shaded woods on the side of Monte Luco and on the other side the vineyards and olive trees fields extending until the region of the Crete Senesi (the so called Moon Landscape) with its always different shimmering sceneries according to the season.
The location of this place is strategic for those who want to take advantage of the rich cultural heritage and landscape of Tuscany. Located just thirty kilometers from Siena, from Rosennano you can easily visit the monasteries, castles and medieval villages in the nature of Chianti or the many churches and Renaissance villas scattered in the Val d'Arbia. The changing and fascinating landscapes of the “Crete Senesi” take you gently towards Asciano and Trequanda and give you a first taste of a still intact part of Tuscany. Within a radius of forty to fifty miles you can enjoy the treasures of Arezzo (to east) of Val D'Orcia (since 2004 recognized as World Heritage Site by UNESCO) with its Renaissance treasures as the city of Pienza or Monastery of Monte Oliveto, the renowned wines of Montalcino and Montepulciano (to the south), or you can visit Monteriggioni and the wonderful villas, country houses and abbeys immersed in the forest of Monte Maggio and Montagnola (to west of Siena).
Florence, Cortona, San Gimignano are just a little more than 60 km far from Rosennano.
Wine, oil and food are part of the culture and there are countless gastronomic itineraries that you can deal nearby.
