Farmhouse Rental in Tuscany, Castellina Scalo - Rosalia 1
Description from the manager
Located in the heart of the Chianti, this farmhouse is situated on a beautiful and renowned wine estate that offers more than the typical Tuscan experience. Not only are there panoramic views of the rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, but there is also the perk of being able to taste wine produced right on the estate. Throughout your stay you will be welcomed by an extremely helpful staff at the reception who can assist you or make recommendations for activities during your trip to Italy.
There are three separate farmhouses on this estate situated in a peaceful and panoramic position overlooking the vineyards of Chianti. The three separate farmhouses have their own swimming pool.

"Judson's review of Farmhouse Rental in Tuscany, Castellina Scalo"
Left on 10/29/2005 for a stay in October 2005 | JudsonReviewed Oct 29, 2005Stayed Oct 2005
I would highly recommend this property and I would love to have stayed longer. Given the opportunity I would love to return to it. The owner told us that the week we were there was the last of their rental season and offered to let us stay a few days longer than the original week at no charge. I would have liked to take them up on their offer, but our schedule did not allow it.
If you are looking for a wonderful peaceful vacation in Tuscany, this is the place to be!
The location was wonderful. The peace and quiet of the area was exceptional. The size of the rooms in the villa was amazing. Everything was in great condition and the owner even had a fire burning in the living room upon our arrival, since it was a chilly day. They also provided two bottles of their own estate wine and a bottle of their estate olive oil. The infinity pool was beautiful. Although it was too cold to get in, it was wonderful sitting by the pool side sipping wine and eating cheese.
The little hill towns in the vicinity were great to visit. Castellina in Chianti is just down the road and has much to offer from good restaurants and good views to basic shopping essentials. The wine shops got a lot of our business.
