Area: The high countryside of Northern Tuscany offers a wonderful scenary all year round and farouble climatic condition for outdoor living from late April to mid-October. The area has a healthy climate, especially at the height of summer, when a sultry heat hangs over the plain. It offers a variety of tracks to hikers, most maintained by the Italian Alpine Club. It is well-known for a local sheep breed: close encounters with flocks of sheep are very common near the house. Also with horses, goats and cows. Snowfalls start generally in December and can continue until late March, though sporadically. Greenness reaches the tops, at 1.600m above sea level, in the second half of May.My name is Paolo Forzoni. I'm a 55 yo musician and vocal coach for singers/theatre actors. After spending many years in a big city, I live now a back-to-nature life with my dog Tex in the mild, green mountains of northern Tuscany (they rather look like high hills), 25km / 15 miles away from the Mediterranean Sea. The house stands on a ridge, 1.200m above sea level, surrounded by pastures and woods as far as the eye can see. The sea is visible in the distance by clear days. I'm a manager and host, with a seven-year experience in hosting students and low-budget travelers from four continents and fifteen different countries, thanks to workaway.info and other platforms. I'd be glad to welcome you and make you feel at home.
