casaBARTHEL is a perfect place for a vacation

il luogo perfetto per una vacanza tranquilla

At the beginning of the 1980 the Barthel family moved into a farmhouse to enjoy the countryside around Florence city center.  The compound has a big stone villa, a tree house and six cottages for rent. With its large courtyard surrounded by olive trees, casaBARTHEL is a small community that includes mums, aunts and uncles, a 92 year old grandmother, a British architect and a small girl. We all live here sharing the same love for the countryside, its olive oil, good food and the family lifestyle! We are only twenty minutes’ from the Florentine Duomo and one hour from Siena and the Chianti land. Come and live with us: enjoy the olive trees, the kitchen garden, the tennis court and the small swimming pool.
