  • Description


    We are in the midst of a beautiful area, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Our Tuscan farmhouse is located 3kms away from the train station in the town of Rufina, frequently connecting with Santa Maria Novella station in Florence. Trips take 35’. We have 1 hectare of land, which includes a garden, vegetable garden, 200 olive trees and various fruit trees. We keep chickens, rabbits, and we have 2 dogs and 2 cats. We also have an apartment that we rent to holiday makers. We are a family of 6 people. Suzy who is English and her husband Salvatore, originally from Sicily. We have 4 sons (29, 27, 25 and 18 years of age) but who don’t all live at home anymore. We speak English, Italian, French, German and a bit of Spanish, and we all eat together. We are all very passionate about cooking and eating good food and offer our guests cooking lessons. We also have a pizza wood oven which we love to use. We can offer you a double bedroom with own bathroom.

    You will learn about the Italian culture and, Italian food. My husband is a wonderful cook and one of my sons is a chef. We also live in the Chianti Rufina wine region so you will be able to sample some good wines. You will learn Italian - the first language at home. If you come in November you can help us to pick olives and make olive oil!
