About the Owner

We do our best to make our guests' stay as pleasant as possible, and to make them feel at home and most welcome. We have worked in tourism and communication for a long time and this has allowed us to meet many great guests, most of which we now have the pleasure to call friends. We are a young couple in our 30's. Marcel is English Canadian and builds websites. Gloria is Italian, and originally from the village where Casina di Rosa is located and where her entire family still lives. She works as a teacher at the University of Pisa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location of Casina di Rosa is fantastic. It is in a very small village south of Siena. Civitella Marittima still retains the true essence of Italy and has not been spoilt by tourism. The people are friendly from the owners to the shopkeepers and the lady who waved each morning from a nearby window. Civitella Marittima is also well located for visiting other places in Tuscany. In our week long stay we visited Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pisa, Lucca, Pienza, Castiglione della Pescaia and Siena. By Carleen and Richmond from New Zealand

Location

From the Owner

Casina di Rosa was built by Gloria's great-grandparents and has never left the family. In fact, Rosa was her great-grandmother's name. The owners have a very special bond with Casina di Rosa and treat it as their own home, and not just like a vacation property. The house has been recently renovated (beginning of 2010) and improved. It is a romantic and cozy home for two in a non-touristy hilltop village in the heart of the Tuscan countryside.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

We provide a wide range of activities upon request, such as wine tasting, olive oil tasting tour, lavender tour, honey tour, cooking classes, visits to cheese and traditional cured meat producers, horseback riding and horseback trekking, mountain biking and much more. We provide all these services at a very competitive price to our guests, but we can arrange these activities at full price for external guests as well.

Coast/Beach:

The village is very conveniently located to visit the most popular and diverse locations in Tuscany. The nearest coast towns are Marina di Grosseto and Castiglione della Pescaia (40 mins) and the beautiful beaches of the Maremma such as Marina di Alberese in the Maremma nature park (50 mins) and the Argentario. For spa lovers, the hot springs of Petriolo are 13km away and Saturnia is 50 minute away by car.

Travel:

We do recommend that you rent a car. The nearest airports are Florence and Pisa. Florence is te nearest, but Pisa is only 2 hours away and it is more convenient, and definitely a better airport. Plus many low cost airlines fly there, which can be good for European travellers. Direct flights from New York have recently started too. The nearest train station is Civitella-Paganico on a minor line between Siena and Grosseto. Several buses to Siena and Grosseto (and Florence via Siena).

Distances:

Siena (35km), Grosseto (32km), Massa Marittima (45km), Montalcino (30km), San Galgano Abbey (25km), Petriolo Hot Springs (13km), Pienza and the Val d'Orcia (45km), Florence (120km), Pisa (170km), the coast (45km), Chianti (45km), Monte Amiata (30km), Pitigliano, Sovana, Sorano (70km).

Further Details:

The village has all major services, even though the two larger supermarkets are in the next village down the road (6km).

Facilities

From the Owner

Casina di Rosa is very conveniently located to explore many diverse areas of Southern Tuscany, the most popular and beautiful area of the region. The village has easy access to one of the main roads, E78 that connects Florence, Siena and the coast of the Maremma. Montalcino, Pienza and the Val d'Orcia are also an easy day trip and so are the coast of the Maremma and the chestnut groves of the Monte Amiata. The house is very well equipped: we make a point to go out and buy what our guests could not find. We have installed air-conditioning and heating system, we provide internet access for free, and fire wood for the open fireplace located in the kitchen. We also provide guidebooks and maps.
