The space
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I FOLLOW THE CLEANING CHECKLIST BASED ON RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION (CDC) TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19.
The house is a former hay barn on a hill, with splendid panoramic views on the Tuscan vineyards from the terraces. The whole house can be cooled very agreeable (not by electricity overconsuming air-conditioning) by big ceiling fans. The house is detached and has two bedrooms, bathroom on the first floor and separate shower/toilet, living room with grand Pleyel piano and a cosy beautiful and well equipped kitchen on the ground floor.
Optional for rent for 50 € per day during the whole period: big room with a antique queen bed and 2 single beds/sofa and a bathroom in the basement. This space is automatically included however when you are with more than 4 persons as you need the extra beds to sleep.
At the big terrace behind the house is a partytent to protect you against too much sun. Central position between Florence and Siena (30-50 km). Ideal starting point for people who like me are passionate about nature, culture, gastronomic, walking and cycling.
The total renovation was in Tuscan style with heavy chestnut rafters and ‘cotto’ tiles on the ceilings. There are also modern and artistic details like a steel cutwork stair handrail and red and gold mosaic in the bathrooms.
The cosy bedrooms (two, 10 square meters each) are on the first floor. Both rooms are connected by a little balcony. The bathroom is equipped with a very comfortable shower with gold mosaic.
Downstairs is a big living room with a piano and a stove. On the other side of the house is the beautiful kitchen.
In the basement there's a washing-machine. Here you'll also find the optional extra space with a dome window and a double bed, a (2p.) sofa and a cot and a bathroom.

Guest access
You have two bedrooms with bathroom on the first floor. (The third bedroom is my private room, but if you rent the rest of the house, I will not use it.) Downstairs are the living room and kitchen and extra shower/toilet. There are several terraces with tables and seats. On the biggest terrace is shade by a party tent and a bbq. Around the house is a big terrain with olive trees. In the basement there's a washing machine and (if rented extra) the bathroom and room in the basement.

Other things to note
The minimum period during the winter is one month (November until 1st of April), for an adapted price.
The costs are inclusive water, gas and electricity. Geothermic heating is incl. but I expect you to close the outside doors and windows during the day carefully as electricity is very expensive in Italy!
Please read all the house rules in advance as they will make part of the agreement:
This is not just a house for holidays with ‘poor’ furniture and a ‘cold’ atmosphere. On the contrary, it is a beautiful house, which is also my own house when I keep my B&B and you will find a lot a artistic details. I hope you will appreciate them, feel the warmth of them and take care for them.
When you come you need to know how to use the house. So in the house you will find a booklet on the table in the hall, with more detailed instructions. And of course you can always ask by writing me.
Please read the house rules carefully as you subscribe them by booking my place:
1. What you rent is: the two bedrooms and one bathroom on the first floor and the use of the kitchen and the living area and toilet/shower on the ground floor. One bedroom is furnished with two single beds (or transformed in a Queen bed), writing desk, chairs, cabinet, and the other bedroom with double with slatted bed base, wardrobe, writing table, armchair and chairs. The ground floor is furnished with a fully equipped kitchen with ILVE stove, fridge/freezer, dresser, table and chairs, and the living with a sofa, armchair, grand piano, table with chairs, library, TV, DVD player. To sit outside there are tables and chairs (under the oak and on the terrace at the back or under the stairs to the basement), and a bench.
The use of the swimming pool is included during the summer period and is for the exclusive use of the renter. There are no other guests, the house is totally independent and not part of a complex.
Eventually EXTRA for rent during your whole period: the basement room with a double bed and 2 singles or sofa (or if you don't need extra beds) and bathroom. The € 50 p.d. for the basement can be paid by a special offer. The basement is already incl. in the price if you come with more than 4 p.
2. RENT includes both bedrooms, living room, kitchen, sheets, towels, bathrobe and tourist tax and gas, water and electricity.
3. CHILDREN are welcome, but especially for the use of the swimming pool, you are responsible for them.
4. SWIMMINGPOOL. Please note that using the stone stairs down the hill and accessing the swimming pool and/or the parking area is entirely at your own risk. If you have children, they should only go down the stone stairs to the swimming pool area accompanied by an adult person.
5. COOLING: The house is on a hill and therefore normally, during hot summertime, there is always a refreshing breeze. The ceiling fans create a cool atmosphere and are less consuming electricity than airconditioning.
6. RESPONSIBILITY: The renter takes full responsibility of all possible risks that can derive from the use of the house, garden and swimming pool either for him/herself or others who have the possibility to use the house. The landlord is explicitly exempt from any responsibility for direct and indirect damage to the renter and his/her whole group. The landlord is also not responsible for interruption of services for which he cannot be blamed.
7. ANIMALS: are welcome, for example a dog, but we should discuss it in advance.
8. SMOKERS are welcome if they smoke outside, but please don't throw cigarette butts into the garden.

Lucardo, Florence, Italy

The splendid views on the hills until the sea, the beautiful wine castles and the wide skies.
The enormous amount of culture in the neighbourhood, endless walking on the paths without meeting a car or enjoying by bike the beautiful views (in Montespertoli you can rent E-bikes). Tasting nice local wines on the terrace watching a breath-taking sunset or eating typical Tuscan food in
one of the restaurants (even at 600 m. walking distance).

I like to have guests who love the silence of my hill. Who like to walk or to go out to see all the culture. Guests can also stay here to spend a sabbatical period. The places will inspire you! In "Casetta", the house on the hill, musicians can prepare their concerts as there is a piano in the living. I am Dutch and was working as a lawyer and researcher in the Netherlands. I started to work in Italy as well in 1994. I worked here as a touroperator and group-leader during trekking holidays in Italy. Now I have during summer this B&B and give Italian lessons in Holland and Italy as graduated teacher collaborating with Italstudio in the Netherlands. I love the Italian atmosphere, Italian food, living outside. I know the nice places in the neighbourhood which you can visit, where you can walk or where you can bike. I love music, have a grand piano which musicians can also use and I can give you advice about trips and concerts. I collaborate with Italian friends to make your stay even more Italian. Sometimes we cook nice Italian dishes for my guests... The nicest thing for me is to make people feel at home in my house on the hill at Lucardo.
