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.

We enjoyed our stay in Rosenanno very much. Sebastiano is the perfect host. His kindness, readiness to be of help and knowledge of the area, which he gladly shared, was very much appreciated. The appartment was beautiful and fully equiped as we hoped that it would be. We immediately felt at home. The view on the terrace is spectacular and enjoying the sun set in the evening is one of the more relaxing experiences we ever had. There is an issue with the large swimming pool at this time, but Sebastiano arranged a small pool which was great for our three teenagers. Rosenanno is a perfect location if you want to explore the beautiful Chianti area and winehouses, Firenze/Siena or the northern part of Umbria. The nearby neighbouring villages of San Gusme and Villa a Sesta are definitely worth a visit. You can also find some great restaurants there. Thank you Sebastiano for a wonderfull experience! We are not planning on coming back to Tuscany next year, but when we do in the future we will without any doubt book again if the appartement is available!
What a beautiful, well organized, and fully equipped house !. Everything we needed - and more - was available.
Staying at Le Balze with two larger families was wonderful. We obviously shared most of the home, but maintained privacy as the bedrooms are in two separate areas. Just perfect.
And then the view... my five year-old could not get enough, as couldn't we.
We will definitely be recommending it to our friends.
Je n'ai pas pris le temps de remercier Sebastiano pour son accueil chaleureux au mois d'août dernier. Nous avons fait une halte magique à Rosennano, dans la Corte. La vue est à couper le souffle, le calme idéal pour une méditation au petit matin. Et nous nous souviendrons longtemps du dîner sur la terrasse au soleil couchant. La maison est spacieuse (nous étions 5) et très confortable. Le hameau de Rosennano surplombe la vallée à 360°, et ses vielles pierres reprennent vie avec beaucoup de charme grâce au propriétaire et à sa voisine. Bravo à tous deux. Je recommande chaleureusement ce séjour. En attendant d'y revenir moi même...
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.
