Stunning estate, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a magical place to stay! If you want a peaceful, relaxing visit this is the perfect place. It is close to Florence and great spots to visit in Chianti. The rose garden is stunning, the pool is heated, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is very well stocked, each room has its own bathroom and the host is lovely. The grounds are just spectacular - hedge maze, playground, quiet ponds, well manicured, just stunning. There is even a zip line and small soccer area down a trail into the back acreage. The scent of the roses filled out villa, it was an amazing visit!

Our family decided to take a vacation in Italy. We searched for a villa that had airconditioning and did not allow pets due to allergies. We needed space for nine people, and private bathrooms for four couples. When I saw Casa delle Rose it fit the bill. Naturally, I worried about whether the villa would be as good in person as in the pictures.

This villa is amazing. It is immaculate. It is peaceful. The rooms are spacious. The beds are large and comfortable ( although if stairs are a problem you might have trouble...only one bedroom and bath are on first floor). The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens, water features and views of the Tuscan countryside. The pool area is private and sunny. There are two loggia areas with tables for al fresco dining. The baths are ensuite. The bedrooms are air conditioned but we did not use the air and enjoyed leaving the windows open (screened). The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking utensils, dishes, glassware, etc. The staff, Julia, was warm and friendly and speaks English. She was available when we had questions and greeted us on arrival. This villa will meet all your expectations and you and your family/ friends will have a very relaxing vacation. When we return to Tuscany, I will definitely return to Casa delle Rose. I highly recommend this property!
