About the Homestay
It offers a completely renovated studio consisting of a bedroom with a double bed plus a single sofa bed in the living area, private bathroom, kitchen, dining area and relaxation area.
The restaurant is located on the first floor of a 1500 villa surrounded by greenery 3.5 km from the center of Florence where I have lived for 50 years with my husband, my children, my mother and my dog. We are a family that loves greenery, silence and respectful of nature.
All around the villa extends a 4-hectare park planted with olive trees available to guests where pheasants, squirrels and hares live in freedom. Sometimes at dusk or at the first light of dawn it is possible to catch a glimpse of deer and wild boar in the vicinity.
From October to November every year we collect the olives which will then be transported to the oil mill and transformed into a fabulous and genuine extra virgin olive oil. On request it is possible to visit the oil mill and follow the whole crushing process, up to the tasting on site.
All year round, however, it is possible to taste the oil of our production.
Free parking available on site.
N.B. the Municipality of Florence requires a tourist tax of 4 euros per person per night for the first 7 days of stay, which must be paid directly to the host (figure not included in the tourist price).

Ho già scritto è mandato....non si trova?
My daughter and I had a wonderful time staying at Francesca's home. It is a lovely place and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. I would recommend Francesca's homestay to anyone who appreciates the beauty and peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside - not far from Florence.
En general fue muy buena su atención, nos recogió de camino a su casa, proporcionó todas las indicaciones respecto a la movilidad, nos atendió con muy buen desayuno y finalmente nos traslado a un lugar intermedio en nuestra salida.
A hospedagem está um um local bonito, muito verde, porém um pouco difícil de acesso. O quarto disponível não é apartamento e fica dentro da moradia familiar, o que não permite a liberdade do hóspede. Necessita disponibilizar maiores informações turísticas e de locomoção pela região. De qualquer os anfitriões foram prestativos.
