Casa Giuseppe

Farmhouse renovated with taste, located in the Val d'Orcia in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, with private pool, for up to 14 people.

In summary

Casa Giuseppe is a 300 m2 house sitting in an opening in a wooded grove and surrounded by old oak trees which blend sun and shade on the lawn in front of the house. Beyond are open fields and views across the valley to the Radicofani fortress on the far-away blue hills. Swimming pool. Capacity : For 10 people (or 14, with the guest house).


On the ground floor what used to be the cows' barn has been converted into a large summer room leading out to the garden. Seven windows flood the room with light, the mangers have been turned into benches with cushions. An open fireplace, comfortable sofas and armchairs make this room pleasantly informal and comfortable. A double room with an en-suite bathroom opens out onto the garden and has been adapted for wheel chair use.

A spiral Renaissance-style travertine staircase leads to the upper floor. Here a stunning central living room with windows looking out on both sides, a fireplace and a large African hardwood dining table leads into a large Tuscan kitchen with an old beam and local travertine hood running along one wall. A waist-high fireplace is a local feature which makes it easy to cook over the fire. The kitchen walls have been painted a stunning blue lime wash in the characteristic style of the old kitchens in peasant farms, as blue was supposed to keep the flies away in the summer. As you will see from the plan of the house two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms while two share a bathroom.

A small additional house for 4 people (2 bedrooms) with old tie beams and a large fireplace is rented together with Casa Giuseppe.
