The house was very nice with plenty of room. The owner was very responsive to our needs
Beautiful house in a stunning location
Fabulous house with breathtaking views for a holiday away from it all whilst still being close enough to facilities.
Thanks Coral, it was a pleasure to have you in Rasina house! Ciao,
"Our family (4 adults, 4 ...
"Our family (4 adults, 4 children) just returned from a week at Rasina. The pictures on Homelidays don''t do this house justice. (Look at the owner''s website to get a better idea, but expect to be pleasantly surprised upon arrival.) The views from every room and the garden are magnificent! The house was in perfect condition upon our arrival--very clean and thoughtfully furnished. Everything in the house seemed like it was in brand-new condition. The owners are friendly and offered useful advice for things to do in the area. The garden and surrounding woods offer privacy and seclusion. There is a nice restaurant at the bottom of the hill in Montanare, easily accessible from the house.
Prior to our arrival, I was slightly concerned about the safety of our children (ages 5 and 7) and the drop-off at the front end of the garden. It was not an issue. It is not really a drop-off, more like a hill with plenty of vegetation to prevent a fall.
Our family has rented several villas in Europe and although we have generally been pleased, we typically have a few significant complaints about the houses we have rented. We had no such complaints about Rasina. It was delightful!"
wonderfull stay in Resina House
we had a fantastic stay in this beautiful house. Spring time was coming and we enjoyed walking around, the landscape and the daily sunset. Everything was perfect. Cortona city is not far away and beautiful. We will go again. Suzanne and Carlos from PARIS
Thanks a lot Suzanne and Carlos for the nice comment, it has been a pleasure to have such nice guests. We hope to see you again in Casa Rasina! Francesco and family.
Stunning location and a fine house
Casa Rasina is situated in a quite unique location with breath-taking views and is very private. The drawback of the location is the access road, which is effectively a 500m rutted track. A car with reasonable ground clearance is preferable, though we didn't need the use of a 4x4.
We enjoyed a very pleasant two weeks here, the house being quite large with the chances for our party to come together or be apart as we wished. We found that the soft seating in the living room was unusable and quite unacceptable at this price point, which was a bit of a drawback as we didn't have the very best of weather and often needed to be indoors.
Fiorenzo and Francesco Della Rosa could not have been more attentive. A thunderstorm took out the electricity supply to the water system, which they fixed within an hour of calling them, likewise a problem with the (fast) internet connection during our stay. The bed linen and towels were changed at the end of the first week and the house cleaned. Many promise this service but our experience is that few deliver, a real plus point for the owners.
The barbecue is well worth trying, especially as the meat and fish in this region are so good. Tuscan sausages and rib eye steak were favourites.
The local amenities are very good, though you do have to negotiate the access road to get to the shops and empty the bins. Special mention here for Locanda Del Molino and Corte Dei Papi, two local restaurants in the valley below the house.
thanks a lot for the review and for pointing out the weak points, which we always take in consideration to improve our standards and offer each year a better service.
Regarding the sofa, we apologize for the discomfort, and we would like to let you know that we have already scheduled its replacement and soon there will be a new couch!
Thank you for choosing Casa Rasina, we hope to see you again in the future.

Schoener und entspannter Urlaub
Wir hatten einen sehr schoenen Urlaub in einem tollen Haus. Die Betreuung und Abwicklung durch Francesco und seine Mitarbeiter wahr sehr zuvorkommend. Das Haus selbst hat einen wunderschoener Lage mit TOP-Ausstattung. Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt und wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.
Take the Florence-Rome (A1) motorway and turn off at exit "Val di Chiana". Then proceed on the Siena-Perugia freeway towards Perugia for about 3km and take the exit to Cortona. Once you reach the town of Camucia, follow the directions to Montanare/Mercatale and when you reach Montanare proceed on the same road for about 3km. You should then meet a sign with "Strada basolata" written on: turn left at the sign and proceed on the dirt road for 500 metres, until the end of the road.
