"Casa Alta" occupies a commanding site with stunning views of the countryside nearby and the distant hills of the Arno river valley. The impressive stone house maintains its rustic character yet is cozy and welcoming, with five double bedrooms, two fireplaces, common rooms, outdoor spaces for relaxing or dining, and a large pool. Just half an hour from Florence, it's an ideal spot to unwind after a day of sightseeing, or simply to get away and enjoy the timeless beauty of the Tuscan landscape.

Casa Alta (also known as Casalta) is a two-storey stone house whose original core, possibly a fortified tower, dates to the 13th or 14th century. Over time it was changed and enlarged to accommodate new residential and agricultural needs, and for most of its existence it was a working farmhouse. Situated some 200 meters below the main road, and reached by a curving driveway through the woods, the house is secluded, private, and very quiet. Thanks to its high location, at nearly 500 meters above sea-level, in the hottest months of summer Casa Alta enjoys cooling daytime breezes and temperatures that are substantially lower – ranging from 5 to 10° Celsius, or 10 to 18° Fahrenheit – than those in sweltering Florence, while in winter it's often warmer and less damp than the valleys below.

Inside, the house’s high wood-beamed ceilings, terracotta tiled floors, stone features, rustic wooden doors, and abundant windows create a harmonious, warm atmosphere characteristic of a classic Tuscan country home. On the ground floor an open loggia frames the large arched entryway to the house. This floor contains a vestibule, a well-equipped kitchen and dining area with a fireplace and access to a small patio, a pantry with laundry facilities, a full bathroom, a living room, and two double bedrooms. Each bedroom has direct access to a broad scenic terrace. On the upper level, reached by an old stone staircase, there is a spacious double living room with a massive fireplace and stone lavabo, three double bedrooms, a study, and two full bathrooms. All the rooms have large windows with wonderful views.

Outdoor spaces around the house include the small patio off the kitchen on the east side, and on the west, a covered loggia – handy in inclement weather – with a wood-burning oven. On the south side, with magnificent views over the valley and up to 50 miles beyond, there is a small terrace with a shady pergola as well as a large patio, outfitted for sunning or al fresco dining under a pergola. In front of the loggia and main entrance to the west, a stone stairway leads down to the sizeable 14 x 7 meter pool. An open park with benches and shade trees enhances the sense of spaciousness and tranquility.

Casa Alta is situated in a beautiful hilly area characterized by vast vineyards, olive groves, and woodlands, and dotted with isolated farmhouses and a few small villages or towns. Wildlife abounds, and it's not uncommon to see deer, fox, pheasants, hares, wild boar, or other animals in the surrounding fields (or even near the house), not to mention a host of songbirds and birds of prey. It's a great area for hiking, cycling, and nature walks. Interesting sites to visit nearby include several medieval castles and the lovely 16th-century sanctuary called the Madonna del Sasso.

Born, raised, and educated in the United States, I have been living in Florence since 1983. I came to do research on a Ph.D. thesis in Florentine history, and ended up falling in love with the place and never leaving. Since finishing my academic degree I’ve worked mainly in local American educational institutions, first as a teacher and researcher, and for the last twenty-odd years as the head of a research library devoted to Italian Renaissance studies. I love to travel and experience different cultures, peoples, and cuisines, and very much enjoy sharing my knowledge of and passion for Florentine and Italian history and culture with others.
