casaBARTHEL is a perfect place for a vacation and an artist residency, immersed in the Tuscan landscape only 15' from the Duomo and 30' from Siena. Come and live with us; enjoy our olive trees, the kitchen garden and our family life style away from the working rhythm. By providing wifi only in the communal courtyard we suggest our guests to utilize internet only when is really needed. Taking a break from been connected with elsewhere and enjoy the 'here and now' could be our best present to you!

The space
Two of our main passions are antique objects and contemporary art. We like to ‘hunt' them down, but more than anything else we can't stop collecting them!
Each of the casaBARTHEL houses has one of our favorite collections.

The COFFEEhouse, is proudly filled with Amos Kennedy posters from Alabama: an artist with a naughty sense of humor and sense of justice. The house offers a queen size bedroom, a kitchen/dining room with dish washer, stove, oven and fridge; a bathroom with large shower, and a private outdoor dining space. The COFFEEhouse is part of the ‘3 Sisters'. Three houses in a row which can accommodate 6 people in one large home.
And if you want to see and know more about our passion for the interior design, the arts and crafts, and antiques you should come visit our design and make shop ‘Riccardo Barthel' in Via dei Serragli n. 234 r, in the Santo Spirito district of Florence!

At the beginning of the 1980 our family moved into the ‘Poggio Secco' (Dry Hill) farmhouse, just outside Florence city center, in front of the Certosa dell'Ema.
The compound had a big stone villa surrounded by olive trees, a compost hub, a pigeon house, a barn, a tall cypress tree and an old German shepherd dog. Everything in the farm was placed around a large terracotta courtyard, a sort of public square.

Thirty years later the ‘Dry Hill' is still our home and a small community. We all live here sharing the same love for the countryside, its olive oil, good food and the family lifestyle!

We recently added a printing press workshop to the activities you can enjoy during your stay at CASAbarthel.

The neigborhood:

The Certosa monastery is a must. Le Corbusier was there to learn!
