La Casa dei Fiordalisi
La Casa dei Fiordalisi is a newly restored 13th century private home, built along the inside of the Trequanda city wall. In the 17th century, an addition outside the wall provided covered loggia spaces and open terraces for all the upper rooms of the house.
After two years of careful restoration, La Casa has a gourmet kitchen and working pantry, entertaining areas inside and out, six bedrooms with attached baths (and each bath with its own washing machine!). There are six fireplaces, and an indoor wood grill for making amazing meals. Living spaces open onto dining and sunning terraces, a swimming pool, and a private garden with fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs.
La Casa dei Fiordalisi is made up of three distinct living spaces:
All the sitting rooms have sofa beds. Trundle beds and children’s cots are also available. Authentic furnishings and original art are set off by the natural stone and plaster walls. Handmade terra cotta floors extend throughout La Casa. All this creates a fine balance between ancient, antique and comfortable.
Music systems, wireless Internet access, solar hot water, rain water harvesting and other modern touches also enhance La Casa.
Massage, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, painting lessons, classical music concert series, walking tours, and wine tastings are all easy to plan, and we are pleased to help you.
The house in its entirety, as a single rental of six bedrooms, is perfect for family vacations and reunions, groups of friends, and weddings and other celebrations.
