Great for exploring Chianti, Villa Rosa di Boscorotondo,is in the middle of vineyards and easy reach of Greve,Panzano and, our favourite, Castellina. Accommodation was suitable for the three of us with good food available in the evenings, good wine and a lovely open air pool to cool off in after exploring the area. Staff are superb, helpful and full of those little touches that make a holiday.And they have dogs which kept our 14 year old happy.
Stayed here for 4 or 5 nights with a photographic tour group in late September/early October. In a beautiful area of mixed farmland and rolling forested hills, with old villages at every turn. The setting is lovely with a little hamlet just down the valley and wonderful views over vineyards and olive groves, forested hillsides, stone buildings here and there. The property has a vineyard through which one can wander and get great and varied views, and is dominated by a huge statue of St Francis. Sabina the proprietor is attentive, warm, amusing and friendly, with excellent English, and the food her people trot out every day is a first class demonstration of the local produce, and they have excellent wines available or you can bring your own if you've picked some up during the day's adventures - brilliant.
The pool looks very inviting, but it was just a bit cool to try it when we were there. Rooms are comfy and everything works - only small gripe was that WIFI is spotty, and can only be relied upon in the public areas, but they are convenient, comfortable and convivial. You probably need you own transport, as it is very much out in the country and I'm not sure what the bus services are like.
