Picture-perfect views of the rolling Chianti hillsides, vineyards, olive orchards.

Set atop gently rolling hills of vineyards and olive orchards, Casa Rossa typifies the beauty and charm of the famous Chianti region of Tuscany.

Location

Casa Rossa is only 25 minutes south of Florence and 45 minutes to Siena. The nearest towns are San Casciano in Val di Pesa and Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, just a short drive away where you will find restaurants, grocery stores.

Exterior

The vineyards on property produce a lovely Chianti wine from the robust San Giovese, Malvasia, Trebbiano and Canaiolo grapes grown there. Additionally, the estate grows olives that are pressed into an excellent extra virgin olive oil.

Interior

The house is entered up one short flight of stairs. All the rooms are on one level. The living room is comfortably furnished with a sofa bed and two upholstered chairs. The sofa opens up to become a double bed.

The country-style open plan kitchen flows from the living room. Kitchen has wood burning fireplace. 

Off the living room is a large terrace with views galore that sum up everything that is beautiful about "bella Tuscany". Enjoy meals al fresco throughout the warm months. Just below the terrace the vineyards stretch out and down the gently rolling hillside.

The bottom part of the house is the cantina that is used for winemaking during the grape harvest and is not accessible to guests. We can arrange to show you the large cantina below the house where antique aging barrels are still used today during the autumn vendemmia -- grape harvesting season. We hope you`ll oblige and try a bit of the very nice Chianti that is produced on the premises!

The villa does not have a swimming pool. Aross the yard is Casa San Vito another vacation rental villa. Because of its proximity it`s very convenient for two families or friends that want togetherness but want their privacy too. The two houses are 30 meters (32 yards) apart, separated by a grass lawn.
