Overall, the villa was very comfortable and Rosado was a wonderful host.
While it was fully disclosed regarding the additional charges for the power and gas, I might suggest that this be added into the rental price. For the hot tub, renters should be given the option of being charged prior to arrival. For gas and electric, most travelers coming from the United States have a reasonable expectation that the rental fee covers these charges. While Rosado was very transparent about this on check in, estimating the amount of cash needed was difficult and for a 15 day stay and the amount of Euros needed far exceeded what any one person could have obtained from an ATM. I would also suggest that the owner be prepared to take credit cards for such charges, including the deposit.
Internet in the villa was very weak, with the signal confined to the first floor. Repeaters should be placed in the villa on each level so all occupants have access to internet. The television was placed in an awkward location on the main level. I might suggest to Rosado that he either move the TV into the living room, or switch the living and dinning room spaces. The living room furnishings seems a bit worn and eventually will need to be replaced. The stereo provided in the villa was very old and not in keeping with today's technology.
Overall, all occupants of the villa seemed very happy. The view was beautiful and there was plenty of space. I would recommend the villa for a future stay.

Very nice and calm place. Well maintained enviroment around the Villa. Big rooms with very big bathrooms, specialy the suite. Rosado and his father are very friendly and helpful. Perfect stay for 12 people. Nice pool area.

The Palazzo Rosadi was the setting for 9 senior American ladies, gathering together for a reunion and celebration of their friendship. Planning began a year ahead of time, made easier through the experience and attention of the agency, EasyReserve of the U.K. They were very professional and answered all queries promptly.
Driving up to the villa on our arrival day was just 'jaw dropping'. The grounds and manor house were stunning and beautifully cared for. And there were even more pleasant surprises in the interior. The bedrooms were large, comfortable and with each having beautiful artistic paintings on the walls and ceilings.
But one of the most wonderful things about staying here was meeting the Rosadi family. This is family owned and operated with every attention to detail for their guests comfort. They are very proud of this property and we're wonderful hosts......attentive while respecting our privacy. Rosado was very helpful with excursions, such as wine tasting, restaurants and interesting sites to visit. All in all, this villa, location and e perience far exceeded our expectations, and we all left with a fondness for the Monterchi area and the Rosadi family.

Our group of 5 couples used Palazzo Rosadi for our recent week in Tuscany. Difficult to add more glowing words about this property than have already been posted on this website. If you have a fairly large group of people traveling together, this villa is an excellent choice. The owner, Rosadi and his parents could NOT have been more gracious and helpful during our stay at this historic villa. The location is out in the beautiful Tuscan countryside near the Umbrian border. The charming village of Monterchi is only 5-7 minutes away, where you will find a small supermarket that has everything you might need for your stay at the villa. The kitchen is equipped nicely with everything you need to prepare lovely dinners.
We spent one day in Florence and found taking the train from Arrezo (20 minutes away from the villa) to Florence (Firenze)was an excellent alternative to driving, since parking and driving in Florence is extremely difficult. The 30 minute trip was very relaxing and delivers you to the Santa Maria Novella station, a 5-10 minute walk to the historic section. A vehicle is a must if you are staying at this villa. If Mr. Rosado offers to take you on a visit to a nearby Monastery outside of Sansepulcro,do it. This small mountain-top place has been there since 1132 A.D. and was frequented by St. Francis of Assisi during his travels. Our group felt it was one of the highlights of the 2 weeks we were in Italy. Also, pay heed to Mr. Rosadi's recommendation for local restaurants... he even called and made reservations at La Pieve Vecchio, outside Monterchi, where we dined at on two occasions. Also, travel the short trip to Anghiari and dine at Da Alghiero, another worthwhile recommendation by Mr. Rosadi. The owners, Gianni and Sylvia will treat you like family, once they find out you know Rosadi.
Overall, Palazzo Rosadi exceeded our expectations on many levels. First time in Tuscany and Italy, but do hope it won't be our last......
