Description from owner


Roocello is the perfect Tuscan home for a family gathering or a group of friends.

Nestled between two streams in a tranquil setting this once characteristic olive mill has now been restored in to a beautiful family home.

The villa is full of character and retains many original features including the original granite stones which were once used to crush the olives into olive oil.

The interiors of Roocello are a stylish mix of traditional Tuscan pieces with modern comforts, including WiFi, laundry facilities and satellite TV.

The outside areas and gardens are an absolute delight with leafy courtyards, an ancient cypress tree and a sun drenched terrace nestled under the original workings of the mill’s water wheel.

Located at the edge of the village of Colle di Compito - villa Roocello offers complete privacy and tranquility but in just a five minute walk you will reach the heart of the village with its narrow cobbled lanes - once here in the village you will find a small grocery store, a bakery where you can pick up freshly baked bread every morning, a butchers and a small bar for that morning cappuccino!



Enter from the courtyard garden into a magnificent high vaulted ceiling room which is refreshingly cool in the hot summer months along with an ideally located open fire place for use in the winter.

This characteristic 100 metre square room was once the main part of the ancient olive mill where the local villagers bought their olives to be pressed. Today this magnificent space still houses two original antique crushing stones once essential for the production of olive oil .

Today the living area is both stylish and comfortable and offers the perfect space for a family gathering or a group of friends. Close to the fireplace there are 2 larges sofa’s and 2 comfortable arm chairs .

The formal dining area provides seating for 8 people


The fully equipped kitchen is ideally located on the ground floor next to the dining space. The traditional style kitchen also has a large kitchen table with seating for 8 people


A small bathroom is also situated on the lower ground floor – the bathroom has a WC, hand-basin and European style half bath with shower attachment



Upstairs there is a large comfortable sitting room with sofa, arm chairs, satellite TV, DVD, fireplace and a door which opens onto a small shaded upper courtyard with a gate which leads to the village.


There are four bedrooms on the first floor - two with queen sized beds and two with two single beds. All have views over the gardens and surrounding country lanes.


There are two bathrooms on the first floor – both have WC, washbasins and shower – one of the bathrooms also has a bath.


Villa Roocello has the most enchanting outside spaces; there are shady corners for relaxing with a book, sunny areas by the pool for taking the sun, a delightful courtyard garden filled with summer flowers and hidden corners nestled over a small red-brick bridge which crosses a small stream.


The pool is perfect for cooling off from the heat of the day.

Pool dimensions in metres 5.5 x 3.5 depth 1.3 meters



Villa Roocello has two lanes which lead to the entrance of the villa, one is a narrow un-surfaced country lane and the other a cobbled winding lane which weaves through the village centre – although the lanes are narrow there are no hills.

There is enough parking for 1 – 2 cars in the courtyard and space for 1- 2 cars in the lane outside the entrance.
