The Space

Quiet and panoramic

"Casa della Rosetta" lies on a dominant position up the hill.
Entering from the private access at Villa La Vallina, you follow the pathway hugging the terraces between olive and pine trees. During the way the beautiful view towards the sea begins to reveal showing in all its splendour from the terrace of the House. The cottage of 100 square meters on two floors has a kitchen, a large living room, three bathrooms and two double bedrooms on the first floor.
Completely and grassroots restored and furnished at the end of 2008, it offers all the comforts of a modern home in a quiet location that invites to take long walks and relax in a chaise-longue on the balcony enjoying the magnificent sea and mountain panorama. Equipped with independent air conditioning and heating systems, it is a perfect place for both summer and winter stays.
It is recommended for up to six people.

  • Wir waren etwas enttäuscht. Die Lage ist an sich sehr schön in mitten von Olivenbäumen. Das Haus ist aber sehr renovierungsbedüftig und war dreckig. Anfangs roch es sehr muffelig. Wir waren wahrscheinlich die ersten Gäste dieses Jahr und geputzt hatte da auch schon länger niemand! Die Sachen, die nicht funktioniert haben ( Wasserschlauch im Garten, poolpumpe) wurden versucht schnell zu beheben. Man kann Eduardo immer anrufen und er war bemüht! Man muss auch mit Besuch rechnen ( 3 Hunde vom Nachbarn, waren aber sehr lieb). Vor allem das Wohnzimmer, die Küche und die Bäder gehören dringend renoviert und mit neuen Möbeln ausgestattet. Die fliegengitter waren in keinem Raum funktionsfähig. Zum nächsten Supermarkt oder ôrtchen braucht man definitiv ein Auto. Zum Strand sind es mim Auto ca. 10-15 Minuten. Von den Schlafzimmern ist die Aufteilung wie folgt: 1 SZ mit Doppelbett und einem Einzelbett im EG, 1 großes SZ im 1.OG ebenfalls mit Doppelbett und Einzelbett, 1 kleineres SZ mit einem Doppelbett. Das angegebene Studiozimmer ist kein richtiges Schlafzimmer, sondern mit einem Schlafsofa ausgestattet! Wir waren 7 erwachsene, mehr sollten es auch nicht sein.
    Alles in allem, waren wir von der Ausstattung und dem Zustand des Objekts schon enttäuscht, denke aber, dass wenn man mal ordentlich putzt, ein paar neue Möbel reinstellt und ein paar Sachen erneuert, es ein wunderbarer Ort wäre um zu entspannen...

    Dear Veronika,

    I have to say that I am quite astonished by your comment and can't believe what you wrote...

    Lets start with the cleaning... You say that the house was not clean enough and that probably you were the first guests of the house... Actually though, we have been full starting May and no one else has complained! Even you guys, after your arrival, when I came to meet you and asked you if the house was fine, you haven't told me anything, cause if you had, considering that we do the cleaning our selfs we would have send you someone right away! But instead you told me that everything was okay.

    Regarding the problem with the swimming-pool pump. Even if there was a problem with water recycling (and for this I am once again sorry) when you arrived the swimming-pool was clean, and in 1 day we have been able to make it work again, so you haven't had any issues with that.

    Considering the supermarket, there is a small but very good grocery store at less than 1 km from the house! If you then decide that you want to go to the biggest one in the area, which is at 7 km, this is not our problem!

    Regarding the house renovation, we rent a COUNTRY STYLE villa. If you were looking to find a cool white LOFT like the ones in the movies... Maybe you could have looked at the images a little bit more carefully... Cause, the house is EXACTLY as it looks in this page!

    You then say that the house is for max 7 people... but also this is a big lie! We have 3 double bedrooms, 1 of the bedrooms has 3 beds ( 1 queen size and 1 french size) then we have a studio room with a QUEEN SIZE bee... This make AT LEAST 9 people... And adding 1 or 2 beds in the big living make 10/11!!!

    To end this, I would like you to think carefully on what you write the next time you rent something else... Saying fake things just because your trip could have gone better, or maybe because you were expecting another type of house is WRONG! We work to give guests the best service we can, and you can see this from ALL the other comments we have received!

  • Eduardo is a very good host and everything went well during our weekend stay in the house (check-in & out, solving technical issues at the house). If you are group of young people want to explore Toskana by car and looking for a simple spacious accommodation at affordable price, I can recommand this house.

  • We arrived to the villa later than planned and it was dark. It ended up being difficult for us to find, but Ilio came to meet us. The apartment was nicely decorated and very clean, and there was an extra sofa bed already set up and made up for our stay. Ilio also picked us fresh grapefruit and oranges from the gardens and our kids loved the three friendly dogs. Thank you Eduardo and Ilio!

  • Posto molto accogliente, la villa era come la immaginavo ed è collocata in ottima posizione. Bellissima esperienza sicuramente da ripetere. Grazie ad Eduardo. Ultimo ringraziamento al custode ilio!

  • Eduardo è una persona cordialissima, la villetta è molto carina, molto vicina alle autostrade e quindi comodissima per chi ha intenzione di spostarsi. Perfetta!

  • We stayed in the big house and we really enjoyed it!
    The property is huge with more than 7000 olive and fruit trees. It is also secure and quiet. The care taker is also super-friendly!

    Recommended for extended stay as well.

  • The villa is very nice, very well furnished and equipped. It is an old-style toscanian house in the middle of olive trees with a beautiful view on the landscapes and the sea. A lot of charm. Neighbours are very far away so that you feel free from city stress and have no reason to be disturbed by anybody. The pool is very nice, of reasonable size (although a deeper and larger pool would have been appreciated but probably not the same price). Ideal terrace for breakfast and dining the night. The access to the villa (700m of a small uneven road) seems difficult at first but you get easily used to it. Edoardo is very nice to provide with any help that may be needed. The location is not esay to find but then you are clos to most important cities (torre del lago for fun, motorway in order to visit pisa, lucca or a little further Firenze). I recommend the villa definitively, we had a lot of fun there with my friends.

  • Great house, clean and spacious!! Very nice area to relax (swimming pool, BBQ...). We really enjoyed our stay in Eduardo's house, I recommend it to other guests!

  • Wonderful House, well equipped, nice Pool, wonderful rooms. Very very nice Location - close to Forte Dei Marmi but also on the countryside. Be aware that the Road to the house is very narrow. Edoardo was veeeery patient and had superb Restaurant recommandations. The House is Big enough for 4 - 8 people.
