  • Description


    My name is Veronica and together with my family we run a little charming family's hotel in a beatiful mediterranean island of Tuscany, only during the summer . We have a little farm with animals.
    The house was built in the 50's by my grandfather Frediano as summer familyhause. It is located, on the island in an untouched natural environment WHICH CAN ONLY BE REACHED BY BOAT.

    The place is very isolated and to reach the nearest town it takes 1.45 hours on foot or 15 minutes by boat. There is sometimes a paid taxiboat. The island is very small, it has three main centers. The interior of te island is Mediterranean scrub and you can take splendid walks. In winter there are only 700 inhabitants .

    For long winter periods the family cannot stay on the Island and we are looking for someone who can stay with the other person who is already here.
