My husband and I stayed at Villa Rosa for four nights in late Sept/early Oct. We had been to Panzano two years prior on our honeymoon and stayed up the street at Villa Le Barone. Upon TripAdvisor's recommendation, we decided to try Villa Rosa as it was about a third of the price of V.L.B. We ended up being so pleased with the villa and will certainly recommend it to friends and return someday. For a very reasonable rate of $120/night, we booked one of the main rooms with a terrace. The pictures online are not exaggerated as the views are incredible from the terrace. We would often have a glass of wine and some appetizers before dinner and just watch the sunset over the hills.
As we experienced the last time, we just love Panzano! It's such a quaint hill town between Siena and Florence, and Villa Rosa is in the perfect central location to travel around the area -- although I would never go without a car. Biking and hiking, in my opinion, are just too dangerous around that area due to the windy roads and constant blind spots.
Our room was very large and exceptionally maintained. The shower was slightly small (my husband is 6'6" and had even more difficulty than I did) but we managed. The Villa is also surprisingly very quiet but that might have been because it was off-peak and not too crowded. Regardless, we're from NYC so having the occasional car traffic sound outside was actually a comfort to us.
With that said, we regretted eating at the Villa on our first night. We drove to Tuscany from Milan and thought we would prefer to have dinner at the Villa upon our arrival, but in hindsight, there are just way too many amazing restaurants in the area to "settle." This dinner also ended up being the most expensive meal of our entire trip ($70 - $25/each, $20 bottle of wine & water). You can't do any better than going three miles up the street to Solociccia (the butcher's shop!) in downtown Panzano. Also, I thought the breakfast at Villa Rosa was slightly lacking. The bread was literally hard as a rock (we thought the gentleman at the table next to us was going to break his tooth), and it was just some coffee, yogurt, ham and cheese. Nothing too exciting.
But, all-in-all, we'd definitely go back -- in a heartbeat!
