  • Description

    Description

    I live in a small stone country house with my lover Irene, cats and dogs, surrounded by chestnut woods and fields.
    I am a gardener, farmer and musician, I moved back to Tuscany and started the project of our country house, based on sustainability and respect of nature and of each other.
    We are at the beginning and there is a lot to do. We look for responsible and motivated helpers not scared of getting their hands dirty.

    This is our first experience on the host side and we will do our best to make you feel at home and share together a great experience!
    We look forward to meeting you!

    Enjoy the fresh air of the woody hills and learn about gardening. Explore the nature and learn about it with Demo who's passionate on spontaneous herbs and learn to make homemade natural liquors (if the time of the year is right). Our new addition to the family are two families of bees and we will be very happy to share with you our knowledge about bees while we keep learning and study this amazing animals!
    We are very easy going and free, we would love to have you participating in the works and also in parties and adventures!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located on a hill about 10 km from Cortona, the area is beautiful and the woods that surround our house extend to the top of the mountain we face from the house. Cortona is a quaint Etruscan town that overlooks the Val di chiana Valley and the Trasimeno lake. Perugia, Arezzo and Siena are the closest cities and Florence is 1.5 hours away. Being a bit isolated the house is not reachable with public transport and is not super easy to move, if you don't have a car we will pick you up and take you to the train station when you want and give you all the information on how to get around. We will be happy to take you around and make the best of our stay together!
    During spring and summer we are busier at our jobs outside the house, therefore it is possible we will spend few hours and sometimes the full day outside the house. Therefore you might find yourself spending some time alone at our house. We can organize for you to be able to move from the house using one of our cars and be independent.
