About Francesca Focosi

My The Tuscan region where I was born and where I live has always known how to amaze its wonderful fusion of nature and art cultura.Quello I love is being able to live surrounded by nature but in just a few minutes you can reach friends and share an exhibition d 'art together or simply take an ice cream company, or take a horse trail through the hills or bike and then cook together.

Francesca Focosi purchased this chateau / country house in 1999

Why Francesca Focosi chose Florentine Hills

When we bought this house nestled in the woods on a beautiful hillside location we decided to renovate it and put our attention in every detail by reusing the original materials, however, making it comfortable to live there at best.

Both my husband fell in love with the house and from the first moment we decided to make unica.Vorremmo that our guests can feel at home in Tuscany how we feel. It would be nice they shared our experience for their holidays in a unique and typically Tuscan.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of nine had an amazing stay! The house is everything you could dream of- beautiful, comfortable, clean and cozy just as you can see in the picture and even more so, -a true home away from home (if your home were a mansion in Tuscany that is...). The outdoor area is fantastic with wonderful views. Plenty to do in the area and if you like to cook you are in for a treat- the kitchen is just amazing. Francesca and David are lovely warm and caring people-we feel lucky to have met them. I would definitely come back here and highly recommend the experience!
