About Us

Warm and welcoming,
the ideal vacation for all who love culture, beauty and Tuscan life style

We are a couple, architect and painteress, living in an old farm house that we have rescued with great care.

The house which stands on the hilltop overlooking the Mugello Valley dates back to the Middle Ages and was originally a semi-detached peasant house. It’s still divided in two units from ground to roof. We live in one part and rent the other unit (m2 150), completely independent with its own entrance, garden and separate loggia.

The home is situated in the Mugello Valley, 40 minutes drive North of Florence, an area where the famous Medici Family, Princes of Florence, has its origin and where many famous artists from the past were born (Giotto, Beato Angelico, Andrea del Castagno).

The house is published in “Country Interiors” and “Icons: Tuscan style”, both edited in 6 languages by Taschen.
