    Hi there! My name is Violeta, I am 33 and I was born and grew up in France. My partner, Emiliano, is 41 and was born and grew up in Rome. We met in Florence over a decade ago and 3 years ago we realised one of our biggest dreams: we bought a "colonica" (old typical farmhouse) in the Province of Florence, in the middle of nature. The sourroundings offer classical Tuscan views with its many vineyards and olive tree fields, but also woods and a peak at the "balze del Valdarno".
    Last May our daughter Amelie was born, and we are very happy and excited about this new chapter of our lives as a growing family!

    In the summer, we use the two apartments on the upper floor as vacation rentals, and we take advantage of the winter months to tackle any project that would make the property better, both for the rentals and for ourselves.

    The house is two floors, we live on the first, and you would be sleeping on the second floor, with an entire apartment at your disposal (the house is actually divided into 3 apartments). Although we want to share beautiful moments together, we also value a lot privacy!
    We would prefer hosting couples, or friends travelling together (2 or 3).
    We like to host for an average of two weeks.

    The closest town is Reggello, about 3 km away, and although it's possible to reach it by foot (about half an hour), it is preferable to have a car. If you don't have one we would of course give you rides to either Reggello or Figline Valdarno, from which you can take the train the reach Florence or Arezzo in half an hour.

    We also live with two 3 year old dogs, brother and sister, who don't look alike at all! They are for sure the sweetest animals we ever met!

    So if you ever wanted to visit Tuscany, and would like to spend a nice moment with two warm human beings and two funny dogs, we would be so happy to have you!

    In February and March 2023, we are looking for volunteers for the following projects:
    - collecting the wood from the field surrounding the house
    - some painting jobs inside the house
    - spending some time with Amelie (she really loves being with other people apart from us!) whike we tackle some things that only us can do!
    - some DIYs and decorating projects for our house and the rentals
    - sanding and repainting some furniture

    The help we need is mostly for DIYing / woodworking and gardening projects.

    You will have the possibility to visit the main Tuscan cities (Florence, Arezzo and Siena within an hour and a half by car, other cities are a bit further), and the beautiful Tuscan landscape.
    Closest train station at Figline Valdarno (15 min from the house), from which you can take trains to those main cities.
