My wife and I stayed in Franco's cottage for 2 nights at the end of our trip in Italy. It was a great location to base yourself from to see the towns in the northwestern region on Tuscany.
the cottage itself is very nice: a little 2 story cottage with bedroom and bathroom upstairs and kitchen downstairs.
Franco was very understanding of our late arrival. When you arrive he has to meet you around the corner then you follow him to his driveway (otherwise you would never find it). After following him up about 700-800m of dirt road you arrive at his place where you are welcomed by the cats and dogs (all very friendly).
We both really enjoyed our stay at Franco's cottage and would definitely book it again if we are staying in the region!
My friend and I had a wonderfull stay at the apartment of Franco and Grazia.
Lovely house with everything you need, with a private garden as well as a shared garden with a splendid view over the Tuscan valley.
We enjoyed our stay, and we felt really welcome by Franco, but also by the dogs Jack and Martha ;-)
Logement très propre, une chambre très grande et sympa et un clic clac dans la pièce juste à côté qui mène à la salle de bains.
Salle de bain très propre refaite à neuf.
Plein d'animaux très gentils, hôtes très agréables qui sont venus discuter avec nous et nous offrir le café.
Des petites attentions pour le petit déjeuner dans la cuisine.
Très bien pour manger dehors, idéal l'été car l'espace de vie est petit: une petite cuisine, une table et des rangements. Pas de canapé pour se poser.
Maison en hauteur donc, il faut une voiture pas trop basse pour passer dans le chemin de terre.4 minutes pour arriver jusqu'à la route.
Piscine hors sol mais qui ne donne pas très envie car sur du goudron.
Sinon expérience très positive.
Our stay at Francos beautiful house was absolutely relaxing and just perfect. We did easily find the house by car and were very friendly welcomed by Franco, his family and the cute cats and two dogs. The appartment was cosy, for August pleasantly cool and clean. Provided we had questions, Franco helped us reliably. The location of the house with trips to Pisa, Lucca, Firenze and the beach is just perfect!
Franco and Grace are such great people and our stay was wonderful. A great space to make your own and feel at home. An easy drive to all the places you want to see in Tuscany.
We had a great experience with Franco from the beginning of our trip! He was easy to contact and came to meet us on the road to direct us to his home! The pictures of the house do not do it justice. A beautiful place to stay! Everything was clean and we had everything we needed for our stay of three nights. Franco was really helpful and emailed us maps of the best places to go. Would recommend anyone wanting a break from the cities to come here for a few nights.
Die Unterkunft entsprach in allen Punkten den Angaben. Franco und seine Familie standen bei Anreise und auch während des Aufenthalts für Fragen zur Verfügung.

About the Host, Franco
Me, my wife Grace and my daughters Sara and Zoe, live in the house that we renovated recently and where we welcome people in a separate apartment.
Life here is very nice although a bit 'hard, we live in close contact with nature, cultivating olive trees and we work for the maintenance of the house and garden / woods.
We made a choice for ecological restoration work: we heat with wood that we cut into the wood, producing hot water with solar heat and electricity with photovoltaic panels, we treat our waste with the wetlands, and we isolated with cork the roof of the house and ecological paints used for painting.
We are now beginning to offer hospitality with the excitement of sharing and exchange that has always characterized our own path oriented to solidarity, happy decrease and ecology.
I love to know people of different culture, music is my passion, my daughters play piano from many years, we love cinema and theatre, we love travel around the world but we can't so much because our house needs of us everyday..
