Its surrounding seven acres of olive groves and vineyards assure you privacy, while filling the air with quintessentially Tuscan aromas.
Lovingly restored in recent years to create a colorful and comfortable home, Casa Passerini welcomes you with spacious living areas that open onto the superb gardens and two elegant pools.

About Your Hosted Villas Tuscany Vacation
First, your Experience Manager will help you decide which one of our luxury Tuscany villas will work best for your rental. Then the planning process begins! By talking to you to get information about your interests, priorities and expectations for your Tuscany vacation, your Experience Manager will put together your own personal itinerary. Whatever you’re looking for in your Tuscany vacation, our team will arrange it: transportation, babysitters, day trips, private tours, special occasions – the list goes on and on.
When you arrive in Tuscany, your Local Host is there to greet you—Hosted Villas staff members who live, work and have a wealth of insider knowledge about Tuscany. Once you get to your luxurious Tuscany rental, you’re welcomed with a buffet of local treats and delicacies—the best way to relax after a long trip and start begin your Tuscany villa vacation.
Our Local Hosts are truly what makes Hosted Villas special. They aren’t just the typical on-site villa concierges. They don’t just serve as tour guides. We think of our Local Hosts as so much more. Using the trip itineraries you created with your Experience Manager, our Local Hosts get to really understand and build relationships with our guests so they can serve as more of a friend in the area. Think of them as your Tuscany guide, concierge, translator, trouble-shooter and guarantee that your Hosted Villas vacation will be nothing short of brilliant, every time. Don’t just visit Tuscany. Truly experience Tuscany.
Though secluded at the heart of its own estate, Casa Passerini is only 5 minutes by car from the small villages of Cignano and Centoia where you can have a coffee, while just up the road is Cortona — a delightful town full of art, museums, winding cobblestone streets and an Etruscan archeological heritage. Within an hour’s drive, you can visit Arezzo, Siena and the famous wine villages around Montepulciano and Montalcino, or venture into Umbria to Perugia and Assisi. Florence is just over an hour away and at the end of the day, there is always the peace and quiet of this luxurious property to come home to.
