This beautiful Tuscan villa with private pool is set in an idyllic position among olive groves where an excellent olive oil (EVO) is produced. Guests who have stayed here in the past have appreciated the surrounding nature as well as enchanting views over the hills. The beautiful view can especially enjoyed from the large swimming pool which has been installed in a panoramic separate area of the garden. Furthermore, it has recently been equipped with a salted water filter system which avoids the use of chlorine – ideal for those looking to relax by the pool area, swim and enjoy the incredible views over the valley.
This charming farmhouse is ideally located at walking distance from Palaia, an ancient hilltop village dating back to the year 1000, nowadays offering all main amenities, and is therefore an ideal oasis for those looking for a fully restful holiday. Despite its unrivalled quiet position, Il Rosino Alto is ideal for exploring Tuscany, being half-way between Lucca and Pisa (both at nearly 40 km away), and with Florence and Siena at a short driving distance.
The house was built in the second half of the 19th Century and it was recently converted to offer total comfort, with spacious rooms and several windows overlooking the countryside, while maintaining the character of the original structure with traditional Tuscan materials. The interiors have been furnished in an attractively simple country style. The outdoor terrace and the several shaded areas are furnished for lounging and dining, boosting open-air life. The surrounding spacious fenced garden make it perfect for families with children also because the property is completely fenced.
Compulsory 4 hours per week included
11m x 5.5m. Salt water system.

Guest Reviews for Il Rosino Alto
We had a lovely stay at your nice Villa – Thank you so much!
Especially for the bottle of olive oil which will keep the memories back at home.
Antica Farmacia is a must go in the picturesque Palaia.
We’ve had a lovely week in the villa – Thank you! Excellent location for visiting places such as Pisa, Volterra e San Miniato.
The pool certainly made the 40° degree neat more bearable!
Thank you for an amazing week. The villa, the location, the pool are all absolutely beautiful.
We've had a fantastic time enjoying the area and relaxing in this gorgeous place.
Thank you for a beautiful stay in this incredible and relaxing villa. We enjoy every aspect particularly the pool, and what was altogether an amazing stay!

Amazing family holiday, thank you. The complete rest we all needed.

Thank you for providing such a beautiful villa in gorgeous Italy.
We Canadians love you all!
An absolutely fabulous Villa with a wonderful pool.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Rosino Alto which included a fantastic meal cooked at the Villa by Mamma Stefa.
The Villa is nicely secluded, approached by a fairly long unmade track, but only a 15 minute walk from the lovely village of Palaia with shops, a cafe and some great restaurants.
Thank you for amazing time in this magnificent house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved exploring the area around Palaia.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cette très belle maison restaurée dans le style local.
Malheureusement nous n’avons pas pu profiter de la grande piscine en raison du mauvais temps.
Position et vue magnifiques.
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.
We loved spent many happy hours at the pool (when the sun was shining) and in more inclement weather travelling through the beautiful countryside.
Thank you too to Sefania!

Thank you for the wonderful stay! We love Italy/Tuscany!
Thanks to the lovely Stefania!
What a lovely plan! We had a wonderful time and we are already planning to coming back. A perfect hide-away. For me and my family a wonderful place to join. Thank you for giving the opportunity to stay here.
Very nice accommodation with a fantastic view
Beautifully restored farmhouse
Large pool with a great view
Very quiet, a bit out of the way, no direct neighbors
Very friendly and uncomplicated handover
This house is such a gem! We loved the quiet seclusion with easy access to town. The views were amazing and we felt so relaxed being here. We took ourselves to Montopoli, Pontedera, + a few local wineries. Elena at Usiglian del Vescovo made us feel so welcome. We loved having coffee every morning at the deli. If you have a chance to go to the Osteria del Norcino in Montopoli is a can’t miss dinner. Tank you Filippo for helping make this such an unforgettable week for us.
Thank you for letting us borrow your lovely property. Our family had a wonderful time exploring Pisa, Siena and Volterra. The pool was lovely and the local food was amazing. It was a special time for us.
We had an absolutely wonderful time in this magical spot. It was rather hard to wrench ourselves away from the pool and it’s amazing view. But we manage a couple of trips to the villages in the local area. Peccioli was a particular highlight. But we should also give a special mention to Palaia, it’s wonderful and of course the gelato!
Have had an amazing time, everything has been brilliant, a truly magical place! Thank you very much
2 weeks spent in this beautiful house. Shinning surroundings and excellent pool. Loved the covered area by the pool. Filippo and the cleaner looked after us very well - nothing was too much trouble - thank you both.
Only small issue was emptying the bins but again Filippo helped us.
Insanely hot -over 40 degrees - so air con would have been very welcomed
Family vacation at its best!
We had three generations under this beautiful roof. Two weeks of enjoying the pool, the sunsets, the wildlife (two encounters with a porcupine), ance the spectacular scenery.
Thank you Filippo for your help with all the small things. We felt very welcome for.

A lovely week in a lovely house; three generations of the P. family playing by the pool, visiting the local sites, eating and sleeping very well. Sam and Flynn don't want to go home

E' stata una vacanza meravigliosa a Palaia. Ci è piaciuta molto la piscina, la casa e la vista. La casa è stata ristrutturata con molto gusto e tutto era pulito.
Grazie mille per il bel tempo trascorso qui sulla collina Toscana e la vostra gentilezza.
It was a wonderful vacation in Palaia. We loved the pool, the house and the view. The house has been very tastefully renovated and everything was clean.

Fabulous pool. Fabulous setting and beautiful house.
We loved pizza place in Palaia!
The House is beautiful and very well equipped, with space for everyone.
The pool was fantastic and we have spent many evenings watching the worldlife.
It was very interesting.
We recommend the pizza take away in Palaia, La Guetta.
Thank you for a great stay! We will be recommending it to our friends and family.
Thank you for sharing your home with us fot the last 4 weeks. The weather has been amazing warm, windy, calm evening, heat wave, and the occasional thunder and lighting!
The isolation makes the villa very private and peaceful and we enjoyed many lazy days by the pool!
The village Is friendly, welcoming and quaint. We liked driving up to the main road and walking into town.
Palaia is perfectly placed between Lucca, Pisa and Florence and very close to Lajatico for Teatro del Silenzio.
Thank you to Beatrice for her friendly help around the house, and Ricavoli and family for your attentiveness plus Salogi Villa.
All the best and maybe we will be back one day.

Die Tage sind wie in Fluge vergangen. Es war sehr schön. Das Wetter war perfekt. Die Toscana Landschaft ist sehr schön. Der Pool + das Haus sind gut gepflegt. Das Putzteam sehr gut und freundlich. Die Ferien waren sehr schön. **** The days flow quickly. It was really nice. The weather was perfect. The Tuscany landscape lovely. The pool and the house are very well kept. The staff is very good and friendly. We spent a lovely holiday.
Our family has spent a wonderful three weeks at Rosino Alto, which is very well situated for visiting Tuscany from Pisa to Florence to San Gimignano, Siena and Volterra. Palaia is an unspoilt, authentic village so typical (in our eyes) of Tuscany and we have really enjoyed our lazy poolside days at the house.
Really nice and great standard. Beautiful view, large pool and high standards. On the negative side the road was a bit bumpy (short though) and there was no air condition. We didn't suffer from heat though, and really loved the place.
