Review 844: Italy Perfect, Casa Rossa


Review by colleen h from AZ

house, sleeps 6, near San Casciano, Tuscany Chianti


April 2004, 1 week


We just returned from a wonderful spring break week in the beautiful Chianti region of Tuscany. We stayed in a charming updated farmhouse called Casa Rossa which we rented through Italy Perfect. Ours was a last-minute vacation as we had made other plans that fell through so we were delighted to find Casa Rossa on Slow Travel. It was exactly what we were looking for in a Tuscan vacation.

It's in in a terrific location for relaxing and seeing the major tourist attractions. The flowers were just starting to bloom among he vineyards and we spent many hours walking the beautiful property admiring the olive groves, the rows of vines and the gorgeous Tuscan hills. The house was perfect for my husband, myself and our three children. It was spacious, nicely furnished and extremely comfortable and very clean. The kitchen is terrific - I wish mine here at home was as nice!

And those views...to die for! We lucked out with some warm weather and sat outside for several of our meals on the terrace. We also liked the fact that it was so easy to drive to the local sites - we spent a day in Florence, a day in Siena and an afternoon in San Gimignano. Italy Perfect was great to work with too - able to answer all my questions and even provided tips on things that would keep my teenage daughters interested.
