  • Description


    We are an Italian family: mum Serena, dad Riccardo, Dora (14 year old) and Vittoria (9 year old). We have two cats and a Golden retriever also!
    We lived in Rome and 8 years ago we moved from Rome between Tuscany and Umbria, in the countryside. We are located 3 km white road from the nearest village (Chiusi), so people staying with us have to really love nature and quiet… but often we go to the nearest towns for daily food shopping and sometime we like go out to meet some friends or to have a pizza!
    Serena works at home where the family, in 2015, started a little b&b.
