casa rosada

Villas with heated outdoor pool are so rare in Italy. The pool water is automatically warmed up by the sun’s rays, right?

Well, at the start of the season (April / May for example) it can be useful to give Nature a bit of a helping hand. And we know that younger children always prefer warmer water.

Casa Rosada ticks all the boxes for a family-friendly holiday.

  1. A pool you can heat (for a very reasonable charge of just Euro 12 per day)
  2. Grounds which are completely fenced-in.
  3. 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, so plenty of space of family / friends.
  4. A basement gym to work off all that pizza and pasta.
  5. Table-football for any competitive Dads …
  6. Just 1.5km from the gorgeous medieval village of Lucignano, in Tuscany.
  7. Rental prices from as little as Euro 950 per week for a group of 12 people.

Here’s what our customer Mrs B.D. of Bristol, UK wrote about her family holiday at Villa degli Olivi, just 1.5km from the medieval town of Castiglion Fiorentino, Tuscany:

Villa degli Olivi

Villa degli Olivi

Had fabulous holiday. Villa Degli Olivi was absolutely beautiful and Aida and Massimo were so kind and welcoming and truly lovely to my 90 year old mum who was very keen to practice her rusty Italian!!

My ‘children’ thought the pool and grounds were magnificent, kept lush and green with gorgeous flowers and the pool has a proper deep end which in our experience is unusual, but for teenagers makes a really massive difference to their enjoyment of using the pool.

We have been holidaying as an extended family for donkeys years (since 1986?) but really loved this villa a lot. Castiglion Fiorentino is a very pretty local town, particularly with the station which we found very useful as you suggested (Florence and Rome for some) and two fantastic restaurants we went to. (Steak connoisseur brother thought best ever!)
