Surrounded by vineyards and fields of wildflowers in the wine-producing area of Chianti, La Casa Rossa is set on a gentle hillside with a never-ending view of the rolling Tuscan landscape. Beamed and bricked ceilings and terracotta floors are complemented by comfortable modern furniture and a very nice collection of antiques. Bright and spacious rooms, including a modern eat-in kitchen, make this an ideal retreat for families and large groups, and a study provides a quiet spot for anyone who can't quite leave their work behind. A beautifully landscaped garden leads down to the swimming pool and its tiled terrace, where an enormous loggia offers shady sitting and dining areas. This area is full of interesting villages and sights. Walking trails, horseback riding and golf are all available nearby, and both Florence and Siena are quickly reached along excellent roads.
