TUSCANY ITALY PERFECT CASA ROSSA VILLA
Casa Rossa is a Tuscany villa in the beautiful Chianti region.

Set atop gently rolling hills of vineyards and olive orchards, Casa Rossa is a peaceful Tuscany villa retreat that typifies the beauty, serenity and charm of the Chianti Classico region. The villa is located in the countryside between Florence and Siena, The nearest towns are San Casciano and Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa. Florence, Siena and Greve in Chianti are an easy drive. The nearest towns are San Casciano and Tavarnelle in Val di Pesa.

Casa Rossa or 'Red House' is a restored farmhouse set off a small country road on an estate that produces 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.

You approach the front door of the Tuscany villa from a short flight of stairs. The living room and kitchen are to the left off the main hallway; the bedrooms and bathrooms are to the right; all of these rooms are on one level. The living room is comfortably furnished with a beige sofa and two comfortable easy chairs. In the corner is a television, but with views like these it's unlikely you'll spend time watching TV! The sofa opens up to become a double bed.

The country-style open plan kitchen flows from the living room, perfect for friends and family who want to socialize and cook up a savory meal together. The dining table provides a great place to congregate and enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner. The table expands to seat eight people comfortably.

The kitchen's 'piece de resistance' is the beautiful original wood burning fireplace that truly makes it the hearth of the home. It's a very pleasant room to spend time in while you make a delicious Tuscan-style meal from the fresh ingredients in abundant supply locally. It has a refrigerator with freezer, a four-burner stove, corner double sink, and a buffet serving area. The many cabinets provide good storage space. The countertops are covered in clean off-white tile. Just off the kitchen is a small room that contains the washing machine.

Off the living room is the large terrace with views galore. Enjoy your meals al fresco throughout the warm months. What better place to relax and review the day's events, or simply enjoy life, than lounging on the expansive terrace? The terrace is furnished with eight chairs, two lounge chairs, a table, barbeque and an umbrella. Just below the terrace the vineyards stretch out and down the gently rolling hillside.

Retracing your steps back down the hallway past the front door, there is the main large bathroom to your left. It has a large Jacuzzi-style bathtub for long soaks, a sink with good countertop space and storage in the cabinet underneath, a bidet and a toilet.

Beyond to your left is the large master bedroom with a lovely wrought iron framed queen bed, antique armoire for clothing, nightstands on either side of the bed with small reading lamps. The ceiling rises high above with exposed beams and tiles. In the morning throw open the shutters and take in the fresh country air.

Across the hallway is the second bedroom with an en suite bathroom. It has two comfortable twin beds each with a nightstand and small lamp for nighttime reading, an armoire for clothing and two windows that overlook the property. There is also a rollaway twin bed so the bedroom can sleep three people.

The bathroom that connects to the second bedroom is small but convenient. It has a sink, toilet and shower and bidet.

The bottom part of the house has a small room that is used for winemaking during the grape harvest and is not accessible to guests. We will happily arrange, upon request, 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 house is located on the same property with another rental house, Casa San Vito VRBO #42825, which can be rented in conjunction with Casa Rossa for large groups. The houses are approximately 30 meters apart.

The Chianti location in one of the most scenic areas of the Tuscany region. Casa Rossa is located at the western edge of the famous Chianti Classico region in Tuscany, between Florence and Siena. About seven miles away is the ancient hilltop town of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, located between the Greve and Pesa valleys. The town is surrounded in part by an ancient wall dating back to the 14th and 16th centuries and has many restaurants, shops and a two supermarkets.

The house is conveniently situated in one of the best parts of the Chianti region of Tuscany for daily excursions to see the famous towers of San Gimignano only 30 minutes away, the sites of beautiful Siena, one hour away; the baths of Montecatini nearby, and is a wine aficionados paradise if you want to sample the many excellent varieties of Chianti
