About the Host, Milena
I worked in the film business for 20yrs and while film scouting, I found this magical place right in the border between Umbria and Tuscany.
I fell in love with this country house, bought it, renovated it and decided to change job and lifestyle!
Now I live in this paradise all year round, right in the countryside, surrounded by nature but, at the same time, with all modern life comforts: supermarkets, shops, cinemas, restaurants.
Florence, Siena and Rome are only a day trip away.
I love animals (especially dogs!), nature, reading, cooking and meeting people from around the world.
I would be happy to suggest places to visit, give you travel tips and help with your travel arrangements, bookings, etc.
Looking forward to having you as my guest!
