Villa Rogai,Elegant Chianti Villa with Pool and Garden near Florence,great view!

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, spleeps 6-8, great value.

Charming and elegant Villa with garden and pool, 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, situated in panoramic position overlooking the enchanting countryside of Chianti area.

This wonderful ancient 300 sqm. mansion, dating back to the end of the 19th century, has been finely restored and renovated maintaining the original structure.

The Villa, equipped with antique furniture, represents an exclusive place to enjoy your stay in Tuscany and a perfect starting point for daily trips to Florence (only 15 minutes away!), Siena and the Chianti area.

The ground floor consists of a wide entrance, full equipped kitchen with great fireplace, dining room with fireplace, living room with LCD television and private gym, bathroom with shower. Laudry room.

A large stone staircase leads onto the first floor, composed by 3 double bedrooms (one can be turned in a twin bedded room upon request), a library with frescoed ceilings and a bathroom with shower.

Upon request, it is possible to add 2 extra beds (in one bedroom and/or in the library).

Either from the entrance, the kitchen and the living room you have direct access to the beautiful garden (300 sqm)


There is a lovely gazebo equipped with table and chairs, that is perfect to enjoy your breakfast and to dine al fresco! You can also relax with a glass of wine under the patio or just laying by the pool… From the garden you have a sweeping view of the rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards around.

The garden, gazebo, patio,barbecue and the pool are for exclusive use of the guests.

The owner, who lives with her family on the second floor of the Villa, has a separate independent entrance.

She will be at your disposal during your stay for any need and requirement.

The Villa is located in the small village of La Romola, where you can get basic provisions (bar, grocery…). 2 miles away is the nearby village of Cerbaia, where to find all the main services. Only 3 miles more to get to the ancient hilltop town of San Casciano Val di Pesa, full of restaurants and wine shops, supermarket, bank, post office….and a lovely outdoor market (on Monday morning!) where to buy the freshest produce such as meat, fish, vegetable and flowers.

Never forget that Florence is just around the corner (7-8 miles!), and if you don’t want to drive there is a bus stop close to the Villa. In 15 minutes you’ll be in the city centre of Florence where to visit its famous monuments and museums and enjoy its magic atmosphere.

Since we are in the middle of Chianti, renowned for its wineries and wines, it is possible upon request to organize wine tours around or private wine tastings at home and to plan also homemade typical tuscan food @home …..

About Carla

Hi, my name is Carla!

I was born here, in this Villa, that my family owns since many generations.

I love this place and its marvelous view on the hills. I live on the second floor of the Villa with my family. There is a second independent entrance, so your privacy will be guaranteed. It will be my pleasure to help you during your stay for any requirement.

Very nice property and well situated for proximity to Florence.

  • 4 of 5

Carla and Andrea are excellent hosts who had provided a very helpful collection of notes describing local attractions and dining choices. While the house has a number of strong points (such as the pool & proximity to Florence and other local attractions) we found its interior to be rather hot and airless. Another factor which prospective guests might like to consider is that the village in which it is located (Romola) does not offer much in the way of facilities. Consequently it is necessary to drive to adjacent villages to buy even the most basic of provisions.

We had all been excited to go to Carlas Villa Rogai , and we were not disappointed! It is amazing,full of antiques and views ! there are loads of places to sit and relax and eat . We ate outside .The villa is very spacious and the big fans were a welcome addition to the bedrooms, my son cooked two meals in the well equipped kitchen,using the lovely food Carla kindly left.We hired two cars and vised Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano ,loved them all> Gorgeous views for the passengers, not so for the drivers!The swimming pool gave us somewhere to cool off ! Carla and Andrea you have a lovely lovely home, thank you so much for sharing it , there were so many more places left to visit we would all love to come back!

Perfect vacation get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at Villa Rogai for two weeks in early July, and I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a perfect Tuscan vacation. This is a beautiful, historic property centrally located for easy day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano and other towns in the region. There is great shopping (fresh pasta, fruits and vegetables, wines) in nearby San Casciano, which is only about 8-10 minutes away by car. Everything we needed for our stay was in the house; complete kitchen, comfortable beds and modern baths. The house is located on a hilltop with stunning views of the surrounding farmland, but also an easy walk into the quiet village of Romola. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor dining space and patio to relax, as well as the private pool. We felt very welcomed by Carla and her family in this peaceful, private, and beautiful villa. One of the best stays we have had anywhere, and we look forward to a return visit in the near future. A real treat.

Best ever in Tuscan Hills

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place! Never had aVRBO or HOMEAWAY better and have been a lot. My wife and I were welcomed by owners with open arms. They were there if we needed them, but never saw them if we didn't. Beautiful views of Tuscsn hills while having your coffee in the morning! So much space! Dining room, family room w/TV, kitchen, workout room, 3BRS, 2 Baths, library, and pool plus so much mor outdoors. Can easily take a bus to Florence. 30 minutes. We used this as a base to drive to Siena , Volterra, San Casciano, etc. Can't wait to go back and see our (now) friends!

Lovely home just outside of Florence.

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples (my husband and I and our two adult children and their spouses). The accommodations were great as there was three bedrooms, a large bathroom on the upper floor and another large bathroom on the main floor. The pool was lovely, the views amazing, and the outdoor area lovely to use for outdoor dining and playing games. One day was just lounging around the pool as we had been traveling in Europe for over two weeks prior to our arrival. It was a great location for day trips. We also had a local chef come in and cook for us...wonderful! Our hostess left pasta, fresh tomatoes and vegetables for us to make a pasta dinner which we did the second night. The home is filled with antiques but is quite homey. My only complaint is that we should have stayed much longer to do everything we wanted to do.

Gorgeous retreat

  • 5 of 5

We delighted in the beauty and spaciousness of this wonderful villa after spending a few days in Rome. Having different inside and outside spaces was fabulous. This allowed for our two families to spread out and relax. Carla was an excellent host, gave comprehensive responses to our queries and ensured that everything we needed was provided. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed cooking and eating outside. We loved the little village of Romola. The villa is well placed to travel easily to Florence, San Casciano, Siena and San Gimignano. There are great restaurants and shops in San Casciano which is about 20 mins drive. We would love to be able to return
