Outstanding property, incredible hosts,

  • 5 of 5

There are really not words to describe our 10 days in Tuscany at this beautiful, beautiful villa. My wife and I were guests of our kids and grandkids for our 50th wedding anniversary. The experience was indescribably wonderful, much of that attributable to this beautiful villa and our hosts, Luca and Letizia. We were in the villa on the right as you look at the picture, which sleeps 8. Luca, an architect, completely restored what was centuries ago a tobacco factory. It is spacious, open, beautifully restored and appointed -- comfortable in every way. Having read a review praising Luca for conducting a cooking class, we decided to do the same. Luca and Letizia, his beautiful wife, prepared an awesome dinner with our family helping -- the best risotto I have ever eaten, roast chicken, beef, wine and outstanding tiramasu for dessert. This evening with Luca and Letizia ranks at the top of the list of memorable Tuscany experiences, and that is saying something given the magnifence of the remainder of the trip. If you are going to Tuscany, do yourself a favor and arrange to stay here. You will, I am sure, have an experience as uniquely pleasurable as we did. thanks Luca, Letizia and, of course, William, their delightful American bulldog who will laugh about every time we are with the grandkids who joined us.

Fantastic property and fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this property to anyone! The entire experience exceeded our expectations - including the property, the location, and the owners. We will definitely rent this villa again in the future and we had no complaints.

The little town closeby was excellent as well - great restaurants, an excellent coffee and dessert place, and nice people. There is also a grocery store less than 5 minutes from the villa, which is very convenient!

If you want to have a great holiday in beautiful Tuscany, this place is perfect! 5 stars in every way!

Beautiful property and home

  • 5 of 5

Not only were the 2 apartments clean and nice, but Luca was a great host. He was extremely helpful in accommodating such a large group (17 people) and available whenever needed. It was a bit warm on the top floor of the apartment but that's a price you pay for coming to Tuscany in July! Thank you Luca for a wonderful stay.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Le Rose in July. We were two families consisting of 9 people. We really enjoyed the place and the surrounding areas and towns around San Rocco a Pilli. Luca and his wife did everything they could to make our stay the best and they even invited us for pizza-making! A once-in-a-lifetime experience! It was certainly a "dream come true" to stay with you and we will recommend it to everyone we know. We hope to be back very soon!

Best wishes from the big Norwegian family!

A wonderful holiday in Italy

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views from a unique location which added to a wonderful holiday in italy. Luca and his lovely wife were so kind and the property was well equiped and clean. I wished we had booked 2 weeks, as the time went so fast and we wanted to see so much more of the area. Eating in San Rocco , avoid pizza restaurant next to the coop supermarket(rip off prices) but do go to il buon sapore ( The Frog ) in the main square as the food is great.We would love to return to 'Le Rose' in the future.

Thank you Luca

Amazing week at Le Rose

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 kids ages 7 and 12) and another family with kids of similar ages stayed at Le Rose for a week in late June. It was very hot during our stay and we spent several days lounging at the incredible infinity pool. The apartment was very large and easily accommodated our two families. As is typical in Tuscany, we had no air conditioning but were provided fans. The house remained cool with only the 3rd floor loft getting a bit warm. Luca was a perfect host. We were close enough to San Rocco a Pilli to get takeaway pizza and pasta several nights, and we were also close to Siena and the highway. The architecture of this restored building is beautiful - Luca planned and performed the reconstruction himself and combined form and function artfully. The building has three apartments, one where Luca's mother and his sister reside and another rental that was vacant during our stay. One of our best VRBO stays ever. Great value too. Get good directions before you arrive - the address is not clearly marked from the road.

The resort is located in the middle of the Sienese hills. The area, called Val di Merse, was settled in prehistoric times from pre-Etruscan, unspoiled nature preserves.
