Vacation Villa Rental Description:



Casa Rutilia is a gracious apartment of 80 square meters (about 860 square feet)
for four people, with shared pool and garden. It is part of a farming estate
surrounded by vineyards, and is located on a hillside 300 meters (about 980 feet)
above sea level.

You will be between Florence and Siena, among the hills of Chianti, just a short
distance from the town of Monteriggione and from Colle Val D’Elsa.

Casa Rutilia has a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with two single beds, a living room with kitchenette and fireplace, and a
bathroom with shower.

The apartment is on the first floor, and is reached by way of an external
staircase. At the foot of the stairs you will find a broad green space,
furnished with table and chairs, for your exclusive use.

The swimming pool

You will have at your disposition a lovely pool of 6 X 14 meters (about 20 X
46 feet), surrounded by lawn and equipped with chairs, deckchairs, tables and
umbrellas. The pool is shared with the guests of the other two apartments. Next
to the pool, you will find a sandy area where children can play, and just
slightly further, an enormous hundred-year-old oak tree.

In the shade of the oak you will find tables and chairs for the guests of all
the apartments. In the evenings, outdoor lighting is available. You can dine in
the open air, in a truly striking atmosphere!

The location

The apartment is part of an historic hamlet consisting of a large villa, a small
group of artisans' and farm-workers’ houses, and the surrounding cultivated
land. Surrounding the buildings is a four-hectare park (nearly ten acres), in
which you can ramble to your heart’s content.

All this is actually part of an agricultural estate of 450 hectares (about 1100
acres), the principal product of which is excellent Chianti wine.

This hamlet originates in the 19th century, but the actual settlement dates back
to 1650.

In front of the villa, you will still find the splendid formal Italian garden,
with its symmetrical pathways, which was originally created in 1650. The villa
is inhabited by the descendants of the original owners.

At the “shoulders” of the villa is the small hamlet of buildings, distributed
around a central piazza. Here, three apartments have been renovated as vacation
rental homes. The owners have taken great care not to alter the original “look"
and traditional atmosphere of the hamlet.

Because of this, when you arrive here, you will sense the rich fascination of
this place with its thousand years of history, where the exteriors of the houses
have been left essentially unchanged.

All around you, you will see nothing but gentle hills covered with long rows of
grapevines, lovingly cultivated now as they were in olden times, and various
craftsmen who still carry out their work among these ancient buildings.

While you are on vacation here, it should be easy for you to slip into the
tranquil atmosphere of the countryside, which transports you away from the
present day.

You will return here to relax in peace, after a day spent visiting the artistic
and historic treasures of Florence and Siena, as well as many other fascinating
Tuscan towns!

Next to the main villa, there is a splendid building which contains the historic
stables, constructed in the 1800s by a descendant of the family who was a great
fan of riding and horses. These are made up of three large rooms with brick
columns, and possess an extraordinary architectural elegance.

These rooms, with their accompanying facilities, can be used for weddings and
other ceremonial events.

The hamlet is found on the slopes of Montagnola Senese, in the area in which the
Chianti wines of Colli Senesi are produced.

Montagnola Senese is a protected area, a hillside of uncontaminated natural
beauty, traversed by hiking trails, one of which passes close by the house.

The household furnishings and equipment

At Casa Rutilia, you can reach your private patio by descending an external
staircase that leads to a small loggia. From this loggia, you can enjoy a
beautiful view of the houses and of the surrounding hills. On the patio, you
will find a table with chairs and an umbrella.

Entering into the living room, you will find that the atmosphere of historic
country life has been carefully preserved: in one corner there is the round
fireplace, the terracotta bricks of the floor have been polished by time, and
the ceiling is supported by wooden beams.

Around the fireplace, you will find a sofa and two armchairs. You will also find
a kitchenette area and the dining table. In the cooking area, you will find four
burners, an oven, and a refrigerator with freezer.

From one side of the living room, you can reach the bedroom with two single beds,
and from the other, a short corridor. Along this corridor, there are doors to
the bathroom with showerand the double-bedded room. All the rooms have windows with an graceful view of the greenery outside.

The apartment is furnished in the simple, graceful and welcoming style of the
Tuscan countryside.

In the hamlet there is a laundry room for your free use.

Casa Rutilia has a parking space. You will need to have a car.

Services upon request

As guests of Casa Rutilia, you will be able to arrange various services,
including lessons in Italian culture, babysitting services, wedding planning
services, and guided tours to Siena.

Nearby tourist attractions

Staying at Casa Rutilia, you will be close to Florence and Siena, as well as to
the most characteristic Tuscan villages, starting with San Gimignano and
Monteriggione, the medieval village surrounded by an ancient stone wall.

You will be in the Chianti wine production zone, and can take tours of many
historic wineries that are open to visitors.

Wherever you go, you will be welcomed with the relaxed friendliness that has
long been one of Tuscany’s most appealing characteristics. As well as enjoying
history and nature, you will find small restaurants where you can eat the
excellent Tuscan cuisine prepared in-house, and drink the wonderful wines of the
area.

The nearest town is Colle Val D’Elsa, 7 kilometers (about 4.5 miles) away, where
you will find the bus stop, the railway station, and the nearest supermarkets.
100 meters (about 330 feet) away, there is a restaurant.
