We call it the Chicken Shed! Literally it was a totally detached (from the main farmhouse) chicken shed (now a bathroom) with a farrier above (now a bedroom/sitting area). Built around 500 years ago, but restored rather more recently. A compact and bijoux space. 3km from a station, direct line into Florence.

It really is your own space. There is a comportable suspended double bed, and below a coffee/tea station, a small fridge, and sitting area.

Outside as much space as you need. With views!

The space
Our rather sprawling Tuscan farmhouse has a fabulous outbuilding; ex-farrier come chickenhouse, with totally private access. Just a main room, with enough room for seating and a coffee/tea station. The double bed is way up a ladder under the chestnut wood eaves. The bathroom below is down a spiral staircase. We dare to suggest it is a base for the agile and fit! A small fridge is in the room too to keep you some cool drinks to hand.

There are NO cooking facilities in the Chicken Shed - so eat out or pick something up at the supermarket!

The ex-farrier/chicken shed sports pink walls and lots of light, as there are 6 windows!

Guest access
Private parking, private garden, access to our vineyard/orchard and walks through the Frescobaldi vineyards that extend beyond ours.

Other things to note
The ex-farrier/chickenshed literally overlooks the vineyards of the Frescobaldi Wine Estate of Nipozzano. And we are working on some very small vines of our own. Very small.

There are a million fabulous walks starting from our house. Be warned - all include hills, this is Tuscany!

We have a couple of big supermarkets nearby and laundromats for washing facilities.

In cold weather months (normally mid October to mid March) heating is required. In the Chicken Shed we have a wood burner, and as long as you are prepared to manage it (cleaning, refuelling etc) we supply the wood free of charge.

If you would like to have the heating on, then we will charge you 10 euro per day for gas.

Location

Pelago, Tuscany, Italy

Our nearest town is Pontassieve (30,000 inhabitants) and we just 19km from central Florence. But we are on the doorstep of the Castentino (exile home for Dante Alighieri, he of the Divine Comedy). The countryside around us is magnificent, we are surrounded by vineyards, forests and tiny hilltop towns.

Another Brit living in Tuscany. I have been here since 1993 (originally from London) and speak fluent Italian, so I am good at getting things sorted locally. I have children and dogs and the usual paraphernelia associated with life. I work from home, and so am usually on hand to help out if required. I travelled extensively in the past for work right around the world and back, but now am taking it easy in the Tuscan countryside. Life in Tuscany is good (short term!) and we live a slow life with simple pleasures. I would love to help you get to know them!

During your stay
As much or as little as you like. We are all Brits in the main house, and you can pop over the road for a coffee or advice as often as you like.

We might often have a BBQ in the garden and invite you (you might want to say no, that's ok!), we might have a picnic snack in the garden and ask you if you want to take part. We DON'T offer these as part of the package (we might be busy!) but they often happen, especially in the summer months.

We also have WorkAway people (people who work their way around the world exchanging work for board and lodge) here working on our land and property. So there is always lots of company and people to chat with.

If you are without transport and would like an evening meal, we can provide that at 10 euro per person including wine. We just need some advance notice.
