We had a wonderful time at this beautiful place! After a short drive (~30min from Florence) one can reach this beautiful 'barn' in Tuscany located in the middle of olive groves. The pictures match exactly how the place looks like and you'll find that everything you need is available: The kitchen features great equipment, lot's of space and a magnificent garden.
Francesca and David stayed next door during our visit and it was a real pleasure meeting these two great hosts. They provided us with all the information needed and helped us find good spots - many thanks!
I can really recommend this beautiful hideaway and I consider coming back myself quite soon.
Francesca and David were wonderful hosts! She brought us to the spurn arcade as we didn't have a car, also took us to the train station! The barn was super with everything you need and hope it to be. It is not walking distance to the town though so really be prepared.The view from the house was gorgeous too. I would highly recommend this place.
This place is a piece of heaven. We had an amazing time here. I can't recommend this place enough!
Francesca and David have everything you could ever think of here, including lots of games for families. Their sightseeing and food recommendations were awesome!
The barn is exactly as pictured and the location is quite close for day trips. We had a great time cooking pizzas in the outside pizza oven with our hosts.
If you really want to get away into the Tuscan countryside, this place is where you need to be. I only wish we had planned to stay longer! We won't hesitate to stay here again in the future.
Francesca and David made us feel very welcome in "the Barn" which was a very beautiful place to stay in Tuscany. The house was decorated with many lovely pictures and we especially enjoyed the large and very well equipped kitchen. The outside spaces were also really great among the olive tree groves. We particularly enjoyed the outside barbecue place.
The location was really great with easy access to many of the key sights in Tuscany which enabled us to take a lot of really nice day trips.
We spent 6 days at Francesca's place and it was an autentic Tuscany experience!
Lovely house, so much spacious and it had everything that we need, from the very well equiped kitchen to the wonderful bedroom, with a nice view!
Francesca and David were super atentious when we arrived, they explained every detail in the house and put themselves available for all the period, for any clarification.
The only point that could be uncorfortable is the fact that there is no possibility of having shower standing - the ceiling is too low. So, there are two options, which for us were enough: one is having shower outside. There is a really nice shower outside the bedroom, in a kind of "terrace". When is windy or cold, the other option is bathing sitting in the tub.
I highly recommend the experience in Francesca's and David's place.
We have had a great time in this house. After a very pleasant welcome they have showed us the house, the beautifull view of the Tuscanies hills and the garden. In case of questions we had easy access to them. Thanks Francesca and David for great hospitality and relaxing time in your country house!
Wow!!! So far, the best Italian home we have stayed in!!!
The pictures don't completely capture the essence of this beautiful home!
Every thing about this home we loved! The gorgeous toilet room with an amazing bath tub!!!
Loved the our bedroom with open Tuscany views! The outside patios, showers and ovens! Gorgeous gardens!!! Living and dinning room is gorgeous! Lost of wood and amazing paintings from our host David!
The views surrounding the home was amazing! Authentic Tuscany feeling!!!
The hose was huge with an amazing Italian kitchen. A must for those who truly want to cook amazing meals!!!
We loved our host!!! Francesca was truly very helpful, sweet and accommodating! Communication with her was good and her English is great!
I can write paragraphs of how she was helpful to us in our Tuscany stay! Those who are looking for a Super Host, I definitely recommend her!!!
Note: This location is away from the closet town....so you definitely need a car or taxi to reach this place! About 20 minute drive from the train station.
Thanks Victor was fun to know you and your girlfriend.

About the Host, Francesca
That's was my idea.
live alone in peace. when i found this house inside woods i decided to live in.
It was hard to restored her but finally i was able to made my project.
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.
