Description of House 75874

Monte di Rota: a haven of peace in the heart of Tuscany

The houses of Monte di Rota are located on top of one of the highest hills in the area and offer a view over the Chianti area until Siena. They are surrounded by a large park of oaks. Thanks to its position between the towns of Siena (30min), Arezzo (30min) and Florence (1 hour), they are ideal for anyone looking for accomodation which offers both relaxation and sightseeing.

The “Leopoldina” house has recently been restored. On the first floor there are three bedrooms with double beds, each with a private bathroom. On the ground floor, there is the kitchen, dining room, living room with sofa-bed and another bathroom. Outside, there is a garden with gazebo in front of the house and a quiet little terrace behind it. From outside you also enter another living room. The house is designed to accommodate six persons, but thanks to the sofa-bed the living room can be used as a fourth bedroom for two other guests.

Finally the jewel of Monte di Rota is its big swimming pool (20x5.5m) which has an extra corner for children. On the lawn around the pool, each group has its own private gazebo. The pool terrace offers a fantastic view over the Chianti valley.

This text has been machine translated.A place for those who love to dive into nature. Renovated house with respect. Cordiality by the host family. 30 minutes from Siena and Arezzo. We would like to come back.

This text has been machine translated.The holiday house Palazzino on the property Monte di Rota is in a fantastic location, you have a beautiful view over the country, can enjoy the food on a nice terrace in front of this scenery. The house is well equipped, clean and cozy. A great plus is the area drumherum and the well maintained pool with many beautiful sunbathing areas, lawns, small pavilions and sun loungers. We felt very comfortable and well recovered. The path up to the property is partly steep, the last piece is gravel road, but that is all to deal with and the location and view of the house are worth the journey. The village of Ambra nearby is a lovely, charming place with all the services one needs for the local supply. Last but not least, the friendliness and helpfulness of the landlord should be mentioned.

This text has been machine translated.The house is beautiful both inside and outside. Excellent access to both countries very nice in Tuscany and Umbria. The only drawback, if you really want to find the showers, especially on the ground floor: the curtain is unbearable xchè tagging along plus the bathroom was always flooded even though we were careful. In summer it is perhaps a minor problem, in winter no! If I may suggest to the owner by the way very kind: put some nice glass showers, so the bathrooms are up to the rest of the house! And better to explain the operation of the boiler so you avoid unpleasant surprises!

Owner's response on 05/24/17 :

This text has been machine translated.Thanks Monia. I had forgotten to answer: we completed the bathroom furnishing, correcting the defects described here. Each bathroom has a shower cabin: no more curtains and no water on the floor. The bathrooms are therefore in excellent condition.

This text has been machine translated.The Casa Leopoldina on Monte di Rota / Ambra / Commune di Bucine (AR) is a wonderfully and lovingly restored country house with high standard of comfort that leaves nothing to be desired. Particularly catches the eye that the owners were trying to preserve the old buildings as much as possible while providing a modern and super-equipped accommodation. Particularly noteworthy are the spacious sunbathing areas around the large and well-maintained swimming pool. Due to the height of the entire site you can enjoy an expansive panoramic views in the region - from the pool during the swim - and looks at night in the distance the lights of the city of Siena and other places in the area. The grounds, the pool and the grounds are maintained daily and are always tip top. The personal attention by the owner, such as whether something is needed, is excellent. The new Poule de Petance - conditioning challenged us to exciting competitions. The chessboard was during our presence nearing completion, I imagine it but exciting and relaxing at the same time before, to play a game of chess in the woods of the property.Monte Rota is also a good starting point for hiking and / or mountain bike tours of the area, with the precise maps and directions, who compiled into a guest session, the owner, is extremely helpful for orientation. Finally, the solid and provided with a solid base access road is to be mentioned that even prolonged and heavy rain (as often happens this summer) survives without washouts and is great to drive. This was certainly not our last vacation to Monte di Rota - sequel will follow!

This text has been machine translated.Beautiful house with lots of privacy.
Fully equipped with beautiful, large swimming pool.
Eve and Gianluca Ustori are quite modest, but very helpful to make it. Guests feel at home is
All that makes the long, narrow and steep access road quite well.
Highly recommended for those looking for relaxation.

This text has been machine translated.What a wonderful holiday! The house is a magical place, an enchanting, situated on a hill in a forest of oaks populated by deer, rabbits and squirrels. The view sweeps over the rolling hills of Tuscany to reach Siena. In short, the ideal place for rest, but also for walks in the woods or a swim in the pool. Also nearby are the city of art, among the most famous in the world. The narrow road to get there is a little 'inaccessible but in reality in just a few minutes to reach the village, where it is possible to supply everything (excellent butcher). And this is just the outline: the farmhouse has been completely renovated recently and offers all the comforts possible. The kitchen is fully equipped and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Suitable for families (there are also games for the little ones), but also to groups of friends, as all rooms are en suite. In short, we loved it and hope to return at the first opportunity.

A bottle of wine and olive oil as a welcome Gianluca and Eva, the priopriétaires are adorable, discrete and kindness to stress! We thank you for sharing your home!
The house is very well located for visiting the must Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Florence, Arezzo ...
A real stroke of heart!
Highly recommended for a holiday with family or friends, without moderation!
