Ciao a tutti! I'm Costanza and I'm born in Florence and live here with my partner Knut who is Norwegian and our wonderful littel viking Leonard. I love cooking, agriculture, nature and meeting new people from all over the world:). I have always breathed a wonderful atmosphere in the big kitchen, around the marble table where my grandmothers and grandfathers were used to cook together delicious meals. I have a degree in Agricultural sciences and tecnologies from teh University of Florence. Me and my sister Serena give cooking classes teaching Florentine cuisine. Serena prepare wonderful vegetarian and vegan meal for our guests and she is a Naturopath. Knut is a food and wine lover and he exports hand made italian food to Norway. My father all around the Villa has a wonderful little farm that provide fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs and eggs to our guests: he is passionate with agriculture, history and arts. My mother coordinates all of us...she is our "shining sun". We'ld love to meet you!

Beautiful Tuscan Villa nestled in Sesto
It's hard to believe it has been almost 9 months since our visit. We had never used VRBO, AirBNB or other services of this type. What we experienced exceeded my expectations. Our room was a 1500 square foot (150 SM) villa with two bedrooms, a living and dining room, two full bathrooms, and a Tuscan kitchen. I was in awe that part of the walls were from the 1300s and our villa dated bact to the 1500s. It was beautifully decorated and we thoroughly enjoyed having wine and cheese in the patio during sunset as we watched fire flies and gave Juni (the cat) little pieces of prosciutto. We took the cooking class with Costanza and here sister. All the recommendations they gave us were excellent and I truely appeciated their warmth and hospitality. They made our first visit to Italy so memorable. I've told dozens of our friends about the experience and would love to visit again. Thank you so much for everything.

Thank you so much Eric and Joyce for your words!!
We are so happy to read you and see that you have a beautiful memory of our Villa and us.
We wish you will be back in the near future and to share more time and experiences together.
Till then, all the best from all of us,
We were in Italy for almost a month...our favorite part was staying at this wonderful 15th century farmhouse for 7 nights! We had a 5-course meal the first night there, it was amazing! We also took in a pizza night...it was the best pizza we had in Italy! Costanza and her sister were wonderful! The farmhouse is about a 5 minute ride to the train station, and only a 10-15 minute train ride to city center Florence. The rooms were very clean, and it was nice to have our own kitchen and patio area. We will definitely return!
There are no words to describe the big smile you put on our faces with your words:)
Grazie grazie e mille grazie ancora.
Tonight we'll have Pizza party for 30 guests...it is 35 C° but we look forward to doing it and to eat tasty pizzas as well!
We look forward to welcoming you again in our little Paradisino.

Costanza and family
This was a one week stay with two adults and one teenager. We were in the ground floor apartment with patio. The accomodation was exactly as described and we were delighted with the layout and decoration. It was great to have the pool in the grounds of the estate. The gardens were a lovely place to relax after a day out in the city. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly throughout the holiday. We would definitely return here when we visit Florence again.
