Vista Rocca is a high quality villa in a small hamlet perched on a Chianti hill with breathtaking wide-open views. Although part of a larger building this Tuscan villas provides a wonderfully peaceful location to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
The car park leads up to the simple garden with an English lawn and a few plants. This simplicity provides the perfect retreat to enjoy the fantastic views that open out across the valley. San Gimignano and the Tuscan hills beyond can be seen on clear days. Going up to the villa there is a stone paved terrace, furnished with a large table and chairs for 6 and shaded by an umbrella.
Off the terrace are two entrances. The first is a set of four wood and glass doors which lead into a stone walled room. When opening these doors the room becomes one with the garden, providing the ideal location to relax on hot or windy days. Inside there is a wooden table dining with four white, comfortable chairs and against the back wall is a small sitting area with a double wooden, cushioned sofa and two armchairs in the same style.
From this room there is a door to the main house. The large open plan living room and kitchen can also be accessed from the terrace. The room runs the length of the terrace and has several big curtained windows that look out to the terrace, which let in plenty of light. Together with the white furnishing these make the room bright and welcoming. On one side is a triple sofa and a double sofa around a fireplace, ideal to warm the cooler evenings.
In the centre of the room is a large oak table with six comfortable dining chairs. While against the back wall is the pretty, modern kitchen units which have wood work surfaces. The functional kitchen has a lovely island unit with the induction hobs. There are also two ovens and a microwave, fridge with a small freezer and dishwasher.
Off the living room is a small curved corridor, which provides access to the two bedrooms and a toilet. The first of the two bedrooms is up a couple of steps, it's is paved with a light wood floor. This modern room has twin beds which can be made into a double on request. In one corner is a curtained wardrobe and dressing area. Next to the bedroom is a bathroom with shower.
The double bedroom is at the end of the corridor. It is also a modern room which has been created to provide a warm atmosphere filled with movement. Like the rest of the villa the room is a tasteful mix of modern furnishings and old Tuscan character. Here, like the main living areas, there is the traditional Tuscan terracotta tiled floor and ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. In the room is a low double bed, an armchair and a decorative piano. A door provides access to the garden. Some steps in the room lead up to a balcony which overlooks the bed. Below the balcony is a spacious walk-in wardrobe, and a large bathroom. The bathroom is beautifully tiled with travertine and has a large shower with mirror, a big window looks out to the front garden and views.
Near the car park and private to Vista Rocca there is a small laundry room and a barbeque with pizza oven. From the barbeque area there are the open views to enjoy while cooking.
The pool and lakes are about 100m from the villa.
Should two doubles be required please request this when booking.
Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

There are 2 mountain bikes available free of charge.

Cornia is a small hamlet of 5 villas perched on the edge of a Chianti hill. From it's dominant position there are incredible, open views of the valley below and onto the rolling hills covered in vineyards, forests and olive groves, dotted with Tuscan stone estates and villas.
The property has a beautiful pool with full sun. It is located above the hamlet buildings and is surrounded by two small, pretty lakes. From the pool there are the same wonderful views over the hills, the towers of San Gimignano can even be seen on clear days.
There are other properties neighbouring this little collection of Tuscan villas, and it is well positioned near several wine estates, Castellina in Chianti and Monteriggioni. Siena is also within an easy drive, making Cornia an ideal base. The entire hamlet has been well restored and has simple, well maintained gardens with pretty lawns and roses.

La villa, la vue et l'environnement paysager étaient tout simplement époustouflants. La position géographique, centrale, était parfaite. La villa était des plus agréables, bien équipée et bien meublée. Les lits étaient très confortables. Même le chemin pour se rendre à la villa est typique de la Toscane, étroit et en lacet, mais quelle vue avec les collines et les monts du Chianti et les magnifiques couchers de soleil!
Local attractions Pour les restaurants, nous recherchions toujours les Osterias. Coups de cœur: La Porta (Monticchiello), Le Panzanelle (Lucarelli Radda in Chianti) et Il Bandito (Gaiole in Chianti). À part bien sûr les beautés de Florence (dont la Galerie des Offices) et de Sienne, à visiter sans faute: San Gimignano, Volterra, Lucca, Montepulciano, l'Île d'Elbe, sans parler de la route des vins du Chianti en général!

Die Wohnung ist sehr großzügig ausgestattet, hübsch eingerichtet und bietet viel Platz. Der Blick vom äußerst gepflegten Garten ist außergewöhnlich schön. Am Pool oder im Garten kann man ruhige Stunden verbringen und abends auf der Terrasse schöne Sonnenuntergänge bewundern und dabei den guten Chinati-Wein genießen.
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
Die Umgebung bietet zahlreich Möglichkeiten für kürzere oder längere Ausflüge.

Lovely villa with panoramic views in a peaceful location. A great location if you want to explore the Chianti area as the popular towns and Sienna are only a short drive away.
The villa terrace now has lovely sails across it to shade you from the sun so we could eat out and sit out in comfort. The pool area though does need a few more shades and loungers.
The mattresses were perfect for us and yes the approach road is rocky in parts but our hire car managed to negotiate it.
The villa has it's own parking and felt quite private even though it is part of a hamlet of 5 or so others - which seemed to be privately occupied by very friendly Italian families.
The nearby town Castellina in Chianti is only a 10 minute drive away with a supermarket, a few shops and many places to eat.

It was a beautiful villa, very well-equipped kitchen, clean and modern. The location was great for touring Tuscany.
The beds were too hard for our liking.
Local attractions It is an easy day trip to San Gimignano, Siena, and Volterra from Vista Rocca. We also drove to Pisa. The Chianti region was beautiful and we toured wineries in Greve, Radda, Gaiole and Montalcino. Castellina in Chianti is a wonderful town nearby and we eat dinner there a number of times. We recommend a visit to Castello di Branfi, Castello di Brolio and Castello di Meleto, and Castello di Verrazzano.

The views from the terrace were wonderful! The house was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The owners were lovely and very welcoming and helpful. It was a super base from which to explore the Chianti region and both Florence and Siena. The nearest hill town Castellina was lovely - very pretty with nice restaurants and a small well stocked supermarket. A great stay!
Minor detail - the very rough road up to the house, but well worth the effort for the views and situation when you got there.
Local attractions The best part for us was exploring all the little hilltop villages within a short distance of Cornia : Radda, Greve, monteriggione, Castellina, San Gimignano and many more. We loved a restaurant at a tiny village called La Piazza. Excellent food and stunning location. The wild boar dish was delicious!

Tolle Aussicht von der Terrasse, San Gimigano immer im Visier! Einfach toll! Die Ausstattung der Küche ist ein Traum! Der Pool war auch Klasse! Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, bis auf die Tatsache, dass Samstagsabends die Open Air Disco in der Nähe des Ferienhaus, ca. 1 km Luftlinie entfernt, ziemlichen Radau gemacht hat! Schade, sonst herrschte eine himmlische Ruhe!

Het was een mooi huis. Alles aanwezig in het huisje, keukengerei voldoende etc.
Prachtig uitzicht, midden in de prachtige chianti streek. Vissen was erg leuk
Weinig voor wat oudere kinderen (10-12 jaar) Hoog ikea gehalte! Dit was ook duidelijk merkbaar aan de bedden. Er was geen airco. Twee kleine blowers hetgeen voor 2 slaapkamers echt te weinig is met ca 38 graden. Tevens was er weinig mogelijkheid om op het terras te genieten van de tuin en uitzicht omdat de 2 'zonneschermen nagenoeg geen schaduw gaven. Dit was ook bij het zwembad dat geheel in de volle zon lag en 1 'vaste' parasol had die geen schaduw bij de ligbedden gaf.
Local attractions Wijnhuizen genoeg te bezoeken oa. Antinori. Bagno San Filippo Termaalbaden.
