An opportunity to experience the city right inside its beating heart. Casa in contrada stands right in a network of streets and lanes, which descend from the famous Piazza del Campo towards Piazza del Mercato, which was once a meeting place for merchants and farmers. We are located in the Contrada Della Torre, in a building that retains all the charm for which this city is so popular. Behind a thick wooden door, you will find a flight of downhill, rather than uphill, stairs. One step, then another one, and yet another one, and in the blink of an eye you will stand in front of the entry door of Casa in Contrada. Opening the door, you will enter a warm and refined setting. We have designed all the spaces so that our guests, four in total, may enjoy all the best comforts. A hallway will lead you to the living area with kitchen. Here, you can admire the wood-beamed ceilings, which are a typical characteristic of Tuscan country houses, as well as synonymous with unrivalled elegance and refinement.
What is the benefit? We are right in the heart of the city!
Looking out the famous window in front of you, you can listen to the voices of tourists, local people, members of the districts, children: so, the flow of everyday life. However, turning your gaze to the left, you will get lost in a large green space called L'Orto dei Pecci, dominated by the Terzo di Città, with the majestic church of St. Agatha. A “green” treasure that is perfect for a few hours of relaxation, maybe reading a good book, or visiting a unique place where an ancient medieval urban garden has been reconstructed.
