  • Description


    I am a tourist as well who arrived almost 20 years ago and than remained. I work with tourists and having my own business but now I got this house to manage for 1 year. I have a few month to make it better and nicer and than open as an apartmenthouse for this season. If this year goes well I can keep it for another year so let's do some works together and make it ready. I have fall in love with the view to the Tuscan hills and the garden with the small pool and hope others will like it too.

    Living in a small Tuscan village is like entering into a big family, far away from the busy city life. You can improve your italian and drink your cafe with locals on the square, taste tuscan food and wine. It is half an hour driving from San Gimignano and also from Volterra, 1 hour from Siena and less from Pisa and the seaside. The house is in the centre of the vilage , bus stop is in front of the house.

    Old furniture must be changed/ paint, 2 kitchens are half ready and big cleaning is necessary . We must put curtains and pictures on the wall, checking and cleaning and maybe painting windows and shutters. Garden is very small, pool is closed wintertime, maybe painting the fence can be done as well on a suny day
