The Holiday home

LA CASA DELLA MADONNA is a unique gem in a dream location for individualists as well as connoisseurs and lovers of the fine arts.
CHIMNEY ROOM: Time seems to have stood still here: As soon as you step through the main entrance into the delicate yellow fireplace room with its low ceiling and heavy, mighty chestnut beams, you feel transported back in time. The furniture from the time the house was built, with the exception of the chairs, seems to capture the atmosphere of the past. Practical: The fireplace room has an additional exit at the back of the house, which leads to a terrace with barbecue. KITCHEN: To the right of the fireplace room is the kitchen. The kitchen passage ends at the top with an original cross beam made of "pietra serena", typical for these old farmhouses. The kitchen miracle: here you have everything "within reach" - in the white-yellow, in the Tuscan country house style furnished kitchen with low ceiling, which could come from a doll's house, even the smallest corner was cleverly used to accommodate all the necessary kitchen utensils: u. a. Coffee filter machine, 2 mochas (espresso coffee made on the stove), toaster, electric kettle, sufficient crockery and dishes, iron, ironing board, clothes horse, DeLonghi vacuum cleaner. Offer every comfort: 1 new Bosch washing machine and dishwasher, 1 new full-length fridge with freezer, 1 new porcelain sink based on an antique model, 1 new DeLonghi gas stove with oven and extractor hood, 2 new hanging cupboards in typical Tuscan style, 1 original antique hanging cupboard, which comes from a desecrated church and now serves as a practical spice cabinet, including 1 antique wooden table from the time with valuable red marble top as worktop, "rosso di Verona"´genannt, another marble worktop of this type fills the back corner of the kitchen. LIVING ROOM: To the left of the fireplace room is the colourful living room/TV room (SAT-TV) in delicate yellow tones with a new, timelessly elegant and made-to-measure suite (3-seater and 2-seater). In contrast, we have chosen a massive wooden table from the 2nd half of the 18th century. Eyecatcher is the television console hand-painted by the artist Simona Bonelli, whose interior doors depict Tuscan landscape motifs. A narrow wooden staircase, now secured with custom-made stylish wrought-iron decorations, has been partially renovated in style and leads up to the first floor in the narrow pale yellow hallway. Two original preserved steps from "pietra serena" still date from that time. The masterfully hand-painted bedroom doors by Simona Bonelli with Tuscan flower motifs and stone door frames create a very special atmosphere in the hallway. FIRST FLOOR: Just to the right of the stairs you enter the so-called "Rose Room", 1 of 2 double rooms. The wrought-iron bedstead with a new memory mattress for 2 persons dating from that time is striking. The hand-painted rose medallion comes from Simona Bonelli. The "floating" wall consoles to the left and right of the bed were created by a professional master carpenter using antique solid wood in a masterly manner. The hand-painted wardrobe was also created by Simona Bonelli and fits in the style of the antique precious mirror chest of drawers. Three rare coat hangers from the beginning of the 19th century are decorative accessories. From the smaller window on the west side you have an overwhelming view of the surrounding hills, the valley depression up to the Pisan mountains, you look down on the panorama terrace and in the olive grove. From the bed you can even catch the sunset between the hills. Every morning the very elaborately renovated bathroom with shower in wellness style, very high quality WC, bidet, marble elements and washbasin with underneath attached hanging cabinet and pull-out drawers guarantees a good mood. The shower base and a niche in the shower have a pebble look. You shower with your own spring water! The Pinocchio room, a single room, with dark heavy chestnut beams, shines in friendly sepia/pricot colours. The Tromp-l´oeil room at the end of the corridor is the second double room and the coolest of all due to its location and refreshing typical blue tones. The highlight of the whole house is probably the almost floor-to-ceiling wall painting in Tromp-l´oeil manner by Simona Bonelli, which represents a fictitious Tuscan landscape. Below it, in the floor, there is a larger rocky promontory, which remained undiscovered for decades. A rare piece of jewellery is the hand-painted wardrobe from northern Tuscany, built around 1850.

Location and surroundings of object

Monsummano Alto, province of Pistoia, between Florence and Lucca/Pisa. Hilly, very quiet southern location with view of the Monsummano Alto from the 9th century , situated on a hill. Absolute top location, which is unparalleled, away from any hustle and bustle, with fantastic views of the surrounding hills up to the Pisan mountains. The famous hill villages of the valley "Valdinievole" like Montecatini Alto, Monsummano Alto, Massa e Cozzile, Colle di Buggiano and Buggiano Castello are at your feet. On a clear day you can even see the ski area of Tuscany in the "Apennino Pistoiese" with the ski resort Abetone. At night the valley turns into a sparkling sea of lights, which you can admire from the terrace

In only about 7 minutes by car you reach the nearest village Monsummano Terme with shops of all kinds. Due to the location, you benefit from a healthy microclimate. Even plants that normally thrive in the Mediterranean feel very at home here.

additional information

SPECIALITY: Once a refuge for partisans in the 1st and 2nd World Wars, this typical Tuscan farmhouse is today a holiday paradise for Tuscany holidaymakers who seek peace and relaxation in the midst of nature. The current owner acquired this Rustico in 2017 and under the direction of the agency owner of Residenze Toscane, Mrs. Gabriele Corsten, herself a passionate art and antique expert, was after extensive renovation work in 2017 and 2018, without cost, time and effort to spare, this unique gem revived to new life. Mrs. Corsten herself meticulously took care of the complete redesign of the interior, which was partly made to measure, for almost 1 year: Furniture for all bedrooms and living or fireplace rooms, complete bathroom equipment, kitchen equipment, partly antique and made to measure and handcrafted lighting fixtures, colour wall design, all living accessories as well as motif selection for the hand paintings. Even the smallest detail has not been left to chance. Not easy to find: Some of the precious furnishings date from the time when the house was built, around 1850, and earlier, which was gathered in months of research from all parts of Tuscany and now, in harmonious harmony with the rest of the furnishings, revives the very special rustic flair of once - elegant and rustic at the same time. In order to give the whole thing an unmistakable touch, 4 Tuscan craftsmen were commissioned: including the artist Simona Bonelli, originally from Milan, who was entrusted with the artistic design of the room doors and many furnishings. Her works have already been published in the "Architectural Digest". In close collaboration with the owner of the agency, the motifs and colours were meticulously matched to the rest of the furnishings and real masterpieces were created under the hand of Simona Bonelli. With the exception of the kitchen and the bathroom, the approx. 200 year old original cotto floor and the heavy chestnut wooden ceiling beams have been completely preserved throughout the house and therefore nothing of the authentic character of this house is lost. Also characteristic of this house: in the kitchen, in the fireplace and in the living room and in one of the double rooms, here and there a few rocky outcrops were visible from the floor along the walls: a sign that this house was built on a rock.
NOTE TO ACCESSORIES: To the holiday home you drive approx. 3 km up an initially steep, asphalted, winding hill road, the last meters of the way are vehicle wide and somewhat uneven. There are alternatives. Not suitable for cars with trailers, larger vans, sports or lowered cars. Excellent motorway access (A 11 Firenze-Mare) in Montecatini Terme to reach the classic excursion destinations such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca The name LA CASA DELLA MADONNA is intended to commemorate a frescoed image of Mary with Child, which was attributed various miraculous events in the 16th century and is still preserved today in the Fontenuova Sanctuary in Monsummano Terme. You can purchase the particularly delicious and digestible olive oil of LA CASA DELLA MADONNA from the house owner. Due to the location of the cultivation area and the quality of the olive variety "Frantoio", one obtains an olive oil "extravergine" with very low acidity and is therefore in secret circles already traded as a medicine! OUTDOOR AREA: From the "piazzale" in front of the house you reach the private, secluded and oval panoramic pool with outdoor shower (approx. 8 x 4 m, m deep, open from the beginning of May to the end of September) via a small staircase and a short plated footbridge. The pool is half built into the ground and borders on one side directly on a large secluded sun terrace from which you can comfortably step into the pool. One with nature: the silence, the pure air and the unique view of the surrounding hills from the pool terrace paved with natural stones is a real refreshment and lets you forget your everyday life. Around the pool, the owner has created a small lawn fenced in where the 5,000 sqm olive grove runs steeply downwards. The flatter plot to the left of the pool has been purchased and is also available to our guests. Here everyone will find his "secret favorite corner". From the PANORAMATERRASSE, which is directly attached to the house, you reach the cool and shady back of the house with barbecue through a small gate. The landmark of the house is the Madonna in terracotta, for which a small "grotto" was specially created.

Wunderschönes Haus am Hügel

from Katrin L. from Graz

4.8 5 5 5 4 5

travel period: August 2020

Das Haus hat eine traumhafte Aussicht auf die umliegenden Orte wie Montecatini und Monsummano Terme und auf die umliegenden Hügel wie auch Montecatini Alto, das man mit einer Zahnradbahn erreicht und jedenfalls einen Ausflug wert ist. Auf der Terrasse kann man den romantischen Sonnenuntergang bei gutem italienischen Wein genießen. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Küche ist ausgezeichnet ausgestattet und die gemauerte Feuerstelle an der Rückseite des Hauses lädt zum Grillen ein. Die Betten sind überaus bequem. Der Pool liegt den halben Tag im Schatten, was an einem heißen Tag sehr angenehm ist. Zudem ist das Klima auf diesem Hügel sehr angenehm, es weht meist ein erfrischender Wind. Die Umgebung ist sehr grün, Pferde weiden in der Nähe und der Garten um das Haus herum ist mit Blumen geschmückt. Die Orte und Städte in der Umgebung bieten viel Kultur, wunderschöne alte Kirchen und sehr geschmackvolle Lokale und Boutiquen. Pistoia, Lucca, Pisa und Florenz sind sehr gut erreichbar. Das tatsächlich einzige Manko ist die Straße zum Haus, die teilweise sehr abenteuerlich anmutet, unbefestigt und mit Schlaglöchern. Aber mit der nötigen Vorsicht kommen Auto und Insassen gut ans Ziel. Dafür genießt man die absolute Ruhe, Abgeschiedenheit und Privatsphäre in diesem wunderschönen Olivenhain.

Schöner Erholungsurlaub

from Angelika S. from Weilheim

5 5 5 5 5 5

travel period: June 2020

Wir haben in der La Casa della Madonna 2 wunderschöne Wochen verbracht.
Das Haus und das eingezäunte Grundstück (ausbruchsicher für unseren Hund) waren außergewöhnlich schön. Wer Ruhe, Abgeschiedenheit und Erholung sucht, ist in diesem tollen Haus richtig. Es hat an nichts gefehlt und das teilweise antike Mobiliar, verbunden mit originalen Elementen des Ursprungshauses waren einzigartig.
Die Supermärkte und Läden sind in ca. 10 Minuten zu erreichen.
Der Ausblick ist jeden Tag aufs Neue wieder unbeschreiblich schön. Die Vermieter und die Vermittlerin Frau Corsten sind super freundlich, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit wenn Fragen sind. Auch für die Maßnahmen gegen Corona ist mit Hygienemitteln gesorgt.
Alles in allem ein super schöner Urlaub!

Romantischer Urlaub zu zweit

from Gabriele B. from Ottobrunn

travel period: August 2019

Uns hat der Urlaub sehr gut gefallen, die Fotos aus dem Internet versprechen nicht zu viel. Das wunderschöne, liebevoll neu reronvierte Haus liegt absolut abgelegen und bietet absolute Privatsphäre. Nötige Termine wie Poolpflege und Müllentsorgung (1 mal die Woche) konnten wir nach Wunsch vereinbaren und wurden genauestens eingehalten. Keine Überrschumgsbesuche. Von Pool und Terasse aus hat man einen wunderschönen weiten Ausblick mit herrlichem Sonnenuntergang. Der Vermieter und Frau Corsten waren sehr aufmerksam und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, gut erholt und würden jederzeit wieder dort hinfahren. Kleine Anmerkung zum Schluß: Wir konnten mit unserem Renault Master (hoch und lang) das Haus Problemlos erreichen.

Ferienhaus "La casa della Madonna" mit Privatpool - nur zu empfehlen!

from Monika B. from 41117 Moenchengladbach

5 5 5 5 5

travel period: February 2019

Wir befinden uns gerade im wunderschönen Haus „La casa della Madonna“ und möchten auch gleich unsere Begeisterung loswerden! Wir haben das Haus vor der Renovierung ja schon mehrmals gebucht und waren immer sehr zufrieden. Doch was wir nach der Renovierung vorgefunden haben, hat uns glatt die Sprache verschlagen und wir kommen aus dem Staunen nicht mehr heraus. Wir haben das Haus nicht mehr wiedererkannt. So ein Haus haben wir noch nicht gesehen. Fast zu schade, es als Ferienhaus zu vermieten. Mit dieser kostbaren Einrichtung würde es jeder andere Hauseigentümer als Privathaus nutzen. Ein großes Kompliment an Sie, Frau Corsten, dank Ihres Einrichtungstalents und Kunstverstandes haben Sie das Haus zu neuem Leben erweckt: ein wahrhaft authentisches Bauernhaus, stilgerecht renoviert – bis in die kleinste Ecke. Wir würden Sie glatt als Innenarchitektin engagieren... Was besonders gefällt: jedes Zimmer hat jetzt seinen ganz individuellen Stil, die diskreten Farben, die wertvolle Einrichtung, die geschmackvollen antiken Möbel, das kleine, doch komfortable Bad, die sehr gut ausgestattete Küche. Alles stimmt perfekt. Man fühlt sich einfach pudelwohl in diesem behaglichen Nest. Uns haben es besonders die handbemalten Einrichtungsgegenstände angetan. Der Panoramablick und die Lage sind einfach umwerfend. Jetzt genießen wir noch mehr die phantastische Aussicht von der Terrasse, da die Bäume nicht mehr den Blick versperren. Was wir nach wie vor sehr schätzen ist unsere ungestörte Privatsphäre – einfach Erholung pur! Die besondere Atmosphäre dieses Hauses im Bild einzufangen, ist nicht einfach, doch Ihre Fotos und Ihre Beschreibung sprechen für sich. Natürlich braucht es (Kunst-)Liebhaber mit Sinn für das Schöne. Wer ein simples, einfaches Ferienhaus sucht, sollte sich nach etwas anderem umsehen. Danke nochmal für alles und für Ihren stets vorbildlichen Service. Wir vergeben 10 von 10 Punkten. Toll, dass wir noch ein paar Tage verlängern konnten. Es grüßt Sie Ihr Familie Boveleth
