About moreno rossi

My name is Moreno, I did scientific studies and this helped me to evaluate and implement the plant restructure of this House. I've always loved beautiful things, elegance and essentiality to functionality.

moreno rossi purchased this chateau / country house in 1983

Why moreno rossi chose Quarrata

I have always loved living in the country and have always enjoyed the kind of life that these manor houses let you live.

As a child my grandmother took me summer afternoons at the river and after a bath to make a snack in the Park of a sixteenth-century villa nearby.

I was in love with the House, the garden of boxwood and scent of the panorama on the city that you enjoyed.

I felt these feelings when I saw for the first time in this House.

It was an old villa surrounded by a large park has become a forest full of nettles and weeds.

Was in full structural decay, but it had an enviable location for the view that offered and especially was rich in historical details (1500 frescoes) frames of carved stone interior doors and large rooms and architectural structures that already constituted furnishings (antique fireplace Hood, sink, etc).

I decided to buy it knowing full well the major task that would involve returning to ancient splendour.

Just recently completed work by reusing all of materials is keeping the same structure and plant native.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It's an old House but it has all the comforts of a modern.It is a villa in a park on a hill where the highest noise are the birds that inhabit the surrounding trees.

Architectural traits did (pull-out ceilings, terracotta floors, rooms in passing without corridors) similar to those ancient villas belonged to noble families who used these houses of countryside as hunting residences.

From the Windows you can enjoy the sight of glimpses of garden landscape, of the plain and the surrounding hills to the mountains of the Apennines.

Fabulous Home and Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

Moreno Rossi's home in Quarrata was a wonderful 10-day experience for my family and friends group of 6. Plenty of room and what a space it was: many centuries old home with frescoes, mammoth fireplace indicating time and space of construction, incredible garden with beautiful views, nice pool, peace and quiet. Nearby Pistoia, Florence 40 min away - beautiful Tuscan villa experience. Host was generous and kind, most informative, and always available for questions. Terrific visit - highly recommended.

Deux semaines en Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Vraiment content d'avoir choisi cette villa en Toscane. Bien situé, Autobus pour florence pas dispendieux et à 15 min de marche. La villa est ancienne, 16ième siècle, le tout très confortable et spacieux. La petite piscine et la climatisation ont été très apprécié avec la chaleur qu'il faisait lors de notre séjour. La cuisine est très bien équipée. Moreno a été pas mal toujours disponible et ses conseils pour des visite ou des restos ont été excellente. Je recommande chaleureusement cette villa, la campagne en ville.

Superb house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house offers everything you expect. It is large, has good rooms and a very nice and big garden. We stayed here for two weeks with our two children (15 and 10 years old). We all loved the pool and have made beautiful trips to Firenze, Lucca, Pisa, Siena etc. We very much enjoyed our stay.

All the rooms are airconditioned.

Moreno has given all the information we needed and could answer all our questions. From the house and the garden you have a nice view over the Tuscan country.

This house really is good value for the money you have to pay!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We - 6 adults - had a wonderful stay in this house in Quarrata. The house is wonderful. It's large, the facilities around the house are ok. And above all the contact with the owner was full of humor and was warm.

We visited Florence, Siena, Pisa, Cinque Terra. In short...

A must-go!
