My brothers and I decided to rent out these properties because everyone has his house of residence. These are apartments that our family has acquired, preserved, and valued over time. We would like our guests to appreciate these historic and charming apartments.
Each apartment is characterized by some historic peculiarities: a stone wall, an old lodge, a wooden ceiling, an arch etc.In each renovation we have tried to maintain the original structure of each property.
Luca met us at the house which had been stocked with water, juice , olive oil and wine which meant we did not have to go shopping..........
The house is ideal with everything you need including a garden where the sun comes round in the afternoon and is a sun trap.
The house is located in a small village which is mid way between Siena and Florence so is ideal for seeing Tuscany but village itself has everything you need.
Appartement propre, fonctionnel et calme dans une maison au coeur du village avec un jardin. Point de départ idéal pour visiter la Toscane.
Franca-Maria a été une hôte très accueillante et nous a conseillé sur les lieux à visiter. Merci pour ces souvenirs de vacances.
