About Violetta Buti
I have worked in tourism for ove 25 years: tour leader, guide in Florence and travel agent. My clients are usually individual travelers or small groups who are looking for tailor-made travels to Italy.
I live 12 km away from Florence, on top of a hill surrounded by olive trees with a stunning view of the dome of Florence.
I grow my vegetable garden and enjoy making jams.
I like hiking and attending exhibits and cinemas.
I rent part of the house where I live - There are separate entrances.
Violetta Buti purchased this chateau / country house in 1986
Why Violetta Buti chose Gavinana - Galluzzo
My parents bought it in 1986. I came to live here in 2012 because I fell in love with the view ... which is breathtaking.
I have always loved nature ... now I grow my vegetable garden, prepare my jams and harvest olives to produce my own extra virgin olive oil!
What makes this chateau / country house unique
It's unique for the view of countryside and of Florence. One lives out in the country yet at only 20 minutes' drive to the city.
There is also public transportation available. The bus stop is next to the property.
