Casa della Contadina has  been lovingly restored from an old farm building into a traditional Tuscan villa with modern interior. This beautiful ground and first floor property with separate apartment is situated in the town of Montevarchi and offers easy access to Florence, Pisa and Siena. Approximately 100 metres from the property is the famous villa "Villa Masini" which featured in the film "Life is beautiful" (1997).
Close to the villa in the pretty manicured fenced garden is the sparkling well maintained swimming pool. There are several sun loungers and a large umbrella available. Next to the pool is an open air shower and a barbecue.
The spacious loggia at the main entrance is furnished with six rattan dining chairs and a glass top dining table. This is the perfect place to dine al-fresco or to just relax and enjoy the warm Tuscan climate. Close to the pool in the garden is a pergola with rattan sofa and two matching armchairs.
Entry to the villa is directly into the bright, modern lounge and dining room. This spacious area is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful arched brick ceiling and paved floor. The lounge is furnished with a corner sofa, two elegant armchairs, small table, open fireplace, CD player and large flat screen television with satellite. Right of the lounge is a dining table with seating for ten people. A flight of stairs lead to the second floor. Next to the stairs is a compact bathroom with shower and a laundry room with washing machine.
An open doorway from the lounge leads into the very modern kitchen. This room is full of natural light and consists of a double oven, gas hobs, dishwasher, double sink, fridge with separate freezer compartment and three stools around a breakfast bar. There is direct access to the garden and loggia.
At the top of the stairs from the lounge is the unique master bedroom. At the furthest end of the room is an elegant double bed, while in the centre is a glass sided bath with hydro jets, there is also a basin set to one side with a huge mirror above.  Situated on the right is a dividing wall with a large flat screen television. Behind the wall is a spacious open shower and bathroom which connects to the second bedroom.
The second bedroom is furnished with a double bed, double wardrobe and a dressing table with mirror. There is also a walk-in-closet in one corner. This room can be accessed from either the upstairs hall or from the walk-in shower and bathroom in the master bedroom.
Access to the separate apartment is via the external steps at the front of the property. At the top of the stairs and to the right is the open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. The traditional styled kitchen is fitted with a double sink, oven, gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge with separate freezer compartment and a dining table with six chairs. Other furnishings include a two seater sofa and a small television.
Left of the stairs is a small hallway. To the right is the double room which is simply furnished with a double bed, large wardrobe with drawers and a small cabinet. The window in the room looks out over the town.
Right of the hall is the small single room. This room is quite colourful and consists of a single bed with ornate headboard, double wardrobe and dressing table. Further down the hall is a lovely bathroom with deluxe shower.

3 double rooms and 1 single room

Double beds cannot be converted into twins.


The garden and pool can be overlooked by the neighbouring properties.

The mother of the owner resides in the old converted barn next to the pool, however the garden and pool are reserved for the exclusive use of guests.


The external steps to the separate apartment are very steep and may not be suitable for people with limited mobility.

Pros Der tolle Eindruck von Haus und Garten durch die Fotos ist voll bestätigt worden, ein sehr komfortables und weiträumiges Haus, das kaum Wünsche offen lässt. Auch der Garten mit Pool bieten ausreichend Platz, sind gut gepflegt und begeistern mit tollem toskanischem Flair. Die hier anliegenden Straßen und Häuser waren für uns übrigens überhaupt nicht störend, wie es vielleicht die Fotos befürchten lassen, weder akustisch noch optisch. Im Gegenteil, sie passen sehr gut in ein harmonisches mediterranes Gesamtbild.

Die Eigentümerinnen waren sehr nett und serviceorientiert und dabei auf unsere Privatsphäre bedacht.
Cons Schränke und Schubläden (auch in der Küche) mussten von uns leider vor Nutzung sauber gewischt werden. Die luxuriöse Ausstattung war nur eingeschränkt nutzbar: keine TV Satellitenempfang (wurde aber nach Reklamation repariert), von der Nutzung des Whirlpools wurde uns abgeraten, die Nutzung der Klimaanlage bedurfte einer Zusatzgebühr. Das alles hat uns zwar nicht wirklich beeinträchtigt, sollte man aber zur Beurteilung des Preis-/Leistungsverhältnisses bei Bedarf berücksichtigen.
Local attractions Die üblichen Verdächtigen sind immer wieder einen Ausflug wert: Arezzo, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Florenz und die traumhaften Gebirgszüge der Chianti Region. Auch ein Tagesausflug ans Meer ist gut möglich. Hier können wir besonders den Naturpark der Maremma empfehlen.

Pros The villa was located within Montevarchi which gave us access to shops, restaurants and the train station all within walking distance. Although we had a car it was only necessary when we needed to go grocery shopping or for a drive out into the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The villa was cool to give relief from the hot temperature and the pool was great, especially as it is close to the villa which kept everyone close together. For a villa within a town it had vey good space around it and was very tranquil and relaxing with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Although traditional in appearance from the outside it is very chic and modern inside.
Local attractions On Sandra's recommendation we went to Osteria l'Casolare which was about a 20 minute drive from Montevarchi, well worth the effort.

Pros Die Anlage liegt in einem sehr ruhigen Ortsteil, es gibt praktisch keine Lärmbelästigung.
Das Gästehaus ist ganz neu renoviert, der eine Teil sehr modern, der andere klassisch-toskanisch.
Rasen und Pool sind sehr gepflegt.
Der allgemeine Aufenthaltsbereich im Erdgeschoß ist modern, elegant und sehr großzügig ausgestattet.
In der Küche gibt es alle erforderlichen Geräte, ev. mehr Ausstattung odere eine andere Kaffeemaschine wären wünschenswert.
Es gibt insgesamt drei WCs und Duschen, was wir als sehr großzügig empfunden haben. Eine Dusche sogar mit eingebautem Radio.
Die Besitzer sind auf unsere Wünsche gerne und schnell eingegangen, eine klemmende Tür wurde sogar sofort an einem Sonntag repariert.
Die in der Beschreibung angeführte "Mutter des Eigentümers" ist eine sehr diskrete nette Dame, die sehr dezent auftritt und keinesfalls stört. Man sieht sie nur, wenn man den Kontakt zu ihr sucht.
Bei der Anreise mit dem Auto ist es günstig sich vom Navigationssystem bis kurz vor das Haus leiten zu lassen, dort die Besitzerin anzurufen und um das Öffnen der Hofeinfahrt zu ersuchen. Danach fährt man mit dem Heck voran etwa fünf Meter gegen die Einbahn und schiebt in den Hof hinein.
Die Hausanlage verfügt über eine Terrasse mit Tischen und Sesseln, auf welcher wir alle Mahlzeiten im Freien genussvoll eingenommen haben.
Für Ausflüge mit dem Zug (Florenz ca. 45 min) oder dem Auto (Siena ca. 1 Stunde, Pisa ca. 1,5 Stunden) ist die Casa della Contadina gut und zentral gelegen.
Cons Das große Schlafzimmer, auf den Fotos mit Whirlpool und Lichteffekten, ist sehr stylisch ausgeführt. Hier gibt es jedoch zwei Punkte zu erwähnen: Es ist vom zweiten Schlafzimmer durch eine etwa 2,5 m hohe Zimmerwand getrennt. Diese geht jedoch nicht bis ganz nach oben (das Haus hat ein Giebeldach), sodass alle Geräusche aus dem jeweils anderen Zimmer zu hören sind. Das ist für erwachsene Reisende nicht immer angenehm, für Familien mit kleinen Kindern vielleicht sogar ein Vorteil. Es gibt in diesem großen Zimmer keinen eigenen Kasten, sodass man entweder aus den Koffern leben oder in die Nachbarzimmer ausweichen muss, in welchen großzügig Kommoden und Kästen vorhanden sind.
