When you envision a Tuscan getaway, the first image that often springs to mind is that of sprawling vineyards, age-old villas, and undulating countryside. But Casa Barthel offers a different perspective, quite literally. Nestled amidst towering pine trees, this treehouse treats its guests to an unparalleled panorama of Florence— all while being a mere 20-minute journey from the iconic Duomo.
Elena Barthel, an architect with a keen artistic sensibility, stands behind this marvel. Her creation is not your average treehouse—it’s an epitome of luxury perched above the ground. Crafted meticulously from wood, glass, and steel, the treehouse stands as an emblem of design ingenuity and architectural flair. It gracefully blends with the Tuscan backdrop, appearing almost like a natural extension of the landscape.
Inside, every inch exudes opulence. Guests can unwind in a spacious room anchored by a queen-size bed. The conveniences don’t end there—a snug kitchenette caters to culinary needs, and a full bathroom ensures ultimate comfort. The treehouse further boasts a built-in fireplace, providing a warm cocoon during the chilly Tuscan winters. And for those balmy summer days? The air conditioning promises a refreshing escape.
A step out onto the private outdoor terrace unfolds a tableau of the Tuscan panorama. It’s an invitation to sip on a glass of local wine while the sun dips below the horizon.
But the experience at Casa Barthel goes beyond the treehouse. As guests descend from their aerial haven, they are introduced to the expansive grounds of a historical stone villa. The treehouse reservation unlocks a plethora of amenities—the shimmering swimming pool beckons for a refreshing dip, a tennis court awaits those in the mood for a match, and for gastronomes, a dining porch equipped with a BBQ and wood-fired oven presents an opportunity to indulge in some alfresco cooking.
