About the Host, Francesca
That's was my idea.

I love this places it is so beautiful .
I'd like to share with other people my place especially in the middle seasons when the sun is not strong and moon is so lovely.
I love cooking and i like to have a dinner at sunset with my best friends.
I love my region of Tuscany.
I am passionate about art, cooking, reading, gardening and I love to travel and visit the villages and cities of art and discover nature.
I like to shoot in the surrounding countryside and discover trails and scenic roads and paths of wine and olive oil and typical restaurants and taverns and scenic routes.
All of this can be found just a few steps in my region "La Toscana"
After living for many years in the city I decided with my husband to be restored
our house in the country and we have put all our passion to do it and make it unique and comfortable, however, trying to keep all the tradition and keeping all the original material (Florentine terracotta, stone, marble of Carrara, exposed beams, designed to brick, etc.)
We would like to share this house and our experience with people who appreciate the wonder and diversity of Tuscany.
