  • I've known Gabriella and her family for many years, and I had the pleasure to be invited at her place several times. I can hardly describe how wonderful the location is: simply the quintessence of the tuscan countryside. A magic, quiet place full of history and with a stunning view. Moreover, Gabriella and her son are dedicated and friendly hosts who will give you precious tips on what to see and what to do in the surrounding area. Gabriella is a lovely, elegant woman and I am sure she will make you feel at home.

    Conosco Gabriella e la sua famiglia da molti anni, ormai, e ho avuto il piacere di essere invitata molte volte a casa loro. È difficile descrivere quanto questo posto sia meraviglioso: direi che è semplicemente la quintessenza della campagna toscana. È un posto magico e tranquillo dove si respira un'aria piena di storia, per non parlare della bellezza della vista che si può godere dalla casa. Inoltre, Gabriella e suo figlio sono ospiti attenti e amichevoli che potranno darvi preziosi consigli su cosa fare e cosa vedere nel circondario. Gabriella è una donna dalla squisita eleganza che vi farà senza dubbio sentire a casa.

  • I know Gabriella´s family since 2008. Over the years I could observe them, and I can honestly say that I have not yet meet anyone who does not share my opinion about them: sociable, helpful, attentive and polite. If you add to the pleasure of getting to know them the wonders and the peacefulness of the Tuscan countryside ... there are no reasons not to pass by for your vacation!

    Conosco la famiglia di Gabriella dal 2008. Negli anni ho avuto modo di conoscerli e osservarli, e posso con onestà dire di non aver ancora incontrato nessuno che non condividesse la mia opinione su di loro: socievoli, disponibili, attenti ed educati. Se al piacere della loro conoscenza si aggiungono le meraviglie e la pace della campagna toscana...non ci sono motivi per non andare in vacanza da loro!

  • I am a friend of Gabriella's daughter and I had the pleasure of spending several nights on the premises. The location is wonderful, with its little church and great views over hills covered in cypress trees and the old town of Castiglion Fiorentino in the distance. Everything just screams Tuscany at you. Gabriella lives in the main house with her twenty-year old son, Gabriele. They have been renting the annexes to tourists, especially foreigners, for over 10 years. They are both warm and friendly and I'm sure they'll take good care of you and give good tips for sightseeing/eating/etc.

About
I was born in the north of Lombardy, close to the Swiss border, where I spent my childhood and adolescence. I moved to Milan to study Law and lived there for over twenty years. I moved to Tuscany with my husband and kids in 1993 and since then I managed to invest more time in the activities I love the most: painting, ceramics and decoration. I am part of the Italian BPW (International Federation of Business and Professional Women) and I was myself president of the local division. I love taking care of my three (well-behaved) dogs and my now 17-year-old cat. We, as a family, have been renting two separate annexes of our villa to English, Dutch and American tourists for over ten years. I now take care of this along with my son. We speak Italian and basic English and French.
