We are a french italian family living halfway between Florence and Siena, in Greve in Chianti which is an area famous for wine making. We live at an altitude of 600 m in the middle of the woods, 6 km from the town of Greve. We are a family of 5 - Gianluca raises goats and sheep, he also works as a gardener. Esther is a landscape architect, working in the area she also grows a small vegetable garden. We have 3 children: Alice is 18, Cloé is 16 and Zeno 13. We as a family would like to improve our English and are looking for a person who could stay with us as a volunteer.
We have a bicycle available to go down to the village. We also can give you a drop with the car to go to take local transport at Greve. It is possible to reach Florence, Siena, Arezzo, and other places in Tuscany by public transport. In Greve in Chianti there are bars, restaurants and shops.
