“We will return to Casa Rossa!”
My husand and I stayed with my mother at Casa Rossa for 6 nights in November 2014. The accommodations were perfect for us and both Francesco and his mother were gracious and helpful hosts. The house is exactly as pictured - charming, clean, and comfortable. The views of the Chianti hills from the terrace are splendid indeed! The location is perfect for exploring this region of Tuscany. We made easy drives to Florence, Siena and Pisa, and Francesco recommended off-the-beaten path destinations in Chianti that we thoroughly enjoyed. The local hill town of San Casciano is charming and has excellent restaurants. Our favorite was La Cantinetta del Nonno, recommended by our host. We enjoyed it so much we returned for another meal the next day. One nearby site that we found fascinating is the Amercian World War II cemetery near Florence (only 20 minutes or so from the house). We have already recommended Casa Rossa and Italy Perfect to friends. We were very pleased with the information we received in advance from Italy Perfect and every detail was attended to. Overall we would give this property and ItalyPerfect an outstanding rating.
Response from the manager Looking forward to your return, thanks so much. Best wishes from the Italy Perfect Team.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Casa Rossa is a very nice house in the heart of Tuscany. The home is very well kept and Francesco the owner was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the beautiful hillsides of Tuscany and just relax.
Response from the manager Thank you for being such a delightful guest. The Italy Perfect Team
“A Tuscan Delight”
We had a week in the villa Casa Rosa which we had picked from the internet. We were after a villa in the country away from the main cities but within easy driving distance of them - Casa Rosa worked out beautifully. During our week we visited Pisa, San Gimignano and Siena. All within easy driving distance. Also went to the market (which is a must) on Monday morning in San Casciano (15 minutes away by car)and several other small towns nearby. We found that we cooked at the villa more than we had thought as this way we were able to indulge in some of the local wines without the worry about driving. The food from the local shops was simply magnificent. The small bar/shop in Romita 3 kms away was excellent with very friendly owners and a great place to get bread, milk etc and meet the locals over an early morning coffee. We did go to one restaurant which was recommended by the Casa Rosa owners (Ristorante Casalta in San Pancrazio) which was a very big disappointment. We were a party of 5 and not one meal was enjoyed so would not recommend this restaurant. Another "must" place to visit is the Antinori Winery at nearby (10 minutes) Bargino. Make sure you visit their cinema and see the family history. I would certainly recommend Casa Rosa as a place to stay. The 'downsides' were minor - very small refrigerator which when full does not cope and it would be very helpful if wifi could be made available (although this was a good excuse to find a cafe for coffee and free wifi!). Frnacesco was very friendly and helpful and with one small problem he was around very quickly to help us out. I would give Casa Rosa a 9 out of 10.
Response from the manager Thank you, please come back again! The Italy Perfect Team
We spent 5 days at Casa Rossa in early September. The apartment, perched on a ridge and surrounded by a vineyard and olive orchard, was very clean and the host was very helpful. The apartment, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, is perfect for a family or two couples. It is on the second floor of a farm building and has a really nice tiled terrace. The view is magnificent. The location is convenient to a couple of small towns for restaurants and grocery shopping. We would definitely recommend La Fattoria in Romita. It's only about 5 minutes away by car. You will get a true flavor of being a "local" and the food is excellent. The location of this apartment is very centralized and make day tripping very easy. Stay on the local road and off the autoStrada and you will see a lot more. We brought our GPS with a European map. It took all of the stress out of exploring the Tuscan countryside. I have rented 3 apartments from Italy/Paris Perfect. They really have their act together. I would recommend them wholeheartedly and will use them again.
Response from the manager Thank you for your lovely remarks, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The Italy Perfect Team.
“Very enjoyable stay”
We had a very enjoyable stay. Details accurately described, and welcome and support whilst we were there was exemplary. Highly recommended.
Response from the manager So pleased you enjoyed your stay and the warm welcome. Thank you from the Italy Perfect Team.
We have come home from our wonderful holiday in Italy. Everything was just perfect! I take this opportunity to thank Francesco and the whole family for their friendliness and helpfulness during our stay. The house and the surroundings of it were lovely. We can very well recommend Italy Perfect to our friends and family.
Response from the manager Thank you, we will be sure to pass along your thanks to Francesco and family. The Italy Perfect Team.
Casa Rossa is the ideal house for those who want to live and feel Tuscany only 15 to 20 minutes from a free parking in Botai, where a bus can be taken to get to the center of Florence in 20 to 30 minutes. From Casa Rossa, you can easily travel to Sienna and many other small towns of great interest like San Gimiano. Casa Rossa is very comfortable for two couples or a family. Is is quiet and offers a magnificient view of surrounding mountains, vineyards and olive trees. The terrace is enchanting with dining table, chairs and BBQ. On the grounds you have access to fresh herbs of different kinds for immediate gastronomic pleasure. Casa Rossa is located on a vineyard and you are in immediate contact with the owners. Francesco and his mother are simply perfect and for your pleasure, you can buy for a small price locally produced whine and olive oil to bring back home. Don't miss this spot. We would come back any time.
Response from the manager We hope you will come back again soon. Thank you from the Italy Perfect team!
“Truly the vacation of a lifetime”
Wow!!! Casa Rossa was everything and more. We arrived early and after speaking with Franchesco, we were greeted at the villa by his Mom and Dad. Delightful people. Scenery was surreal. Just like the pictures. So beautiful. Villa is wonderful. Imaculate and well apportioned. We completely fell in love with the villa and the area. We day tripped to so many outstanding towns including the "biggies". Luckily we hit the wine harvest the day we arrived so we got to see the entire process from picking the grapes to final cleanup right from our balcony. What a Bonus! Once we got used to the roads,(short learining curve)everything exceeded our high expectations. Italy Perfect was spot on and very helpful in the process and Franchesco was friendly and available if needed by phone. I have already recommended Italy Perfect and Casa Rossa to a number of friends. Best vacation ever!!!
Response from the manager Thank you for being our guest. We are pleased you had a wonderful stay. The Italy Perfect team.
What a wonderful unforgettable vacation! I would highly recommend this villa with incredible views to anyone going to Tuscany. Francesco is wonderful and so helpful to the visitors. You can't go wrong!
Response from the manager Thank you for being our valued guest! Regards, Lisa at ItalyPerfect
“Beautiful Casa Rossa”
We spent 8 nights at Casa Rossa and it wasn't nearly long enough. It proved to be a perfect location for easy trips into Florence and still have amazing Tuscan countryside all around us. Driving into Florence was a bit daunting at first but we quickly found a few reliable parking garages and even got used to the scooters surging all around us in traffic. Our hosts were wonderful, warm and inviting. They make some of the best chianti we drank, right there. San Casciano was also very accessible and we had a picture perfect first night dinner at Osteria Cafe'del Popolano. The villa was perfect for us, casual and comfortable and plenty of room for 4. We intend to return as soon as we can. Italy Perfect is definitely worth recommending. Everything was clear and the preparation information was very helpful. Our only mistake was trying to do too much in too short an amount of time. We wish we had visited more of the surrounding towns but we feel that we really got to experience Florence and that was wonderful. Next trip we will stay longer, slow down a little more and soak in more of Tuscany.
Response from the manager Please come back again for a longer stay! Regards, Lisa ItalyPerfect.com
