About the Homestay
It offers a completely renovated studio apartment consisting of a bedroom with a double bed plus a single sofa bed in the living area, a private bathroom, a kitchen, a dining area and a relaxation area.
The restaurant is located on the first floor of a 16th century villa surrounded by greenery 3.5 km from the center of Florence where I live for 50 years along with my husband, my children, my mother and my dog. We are a family that loves nature, silence and respect for nature.
All around the villa there is a park of 4 hectares 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 also possible to see some deer and wild boar near the house.
From October to November each year we harvest the olives which will then be transported to the mill and turned into a fabulous and genuine extra virgin olive oil. On request it is possible to visit the mill and follow the whole path of the pressing, up to the tasting on the spot.
However, throughout the year it is possible to taste the oil we produce.
Free parking available on site.
N.B. the Municipality of Florence requires a tourist tax of 3 euros per person per night for the first 7 days of stay, which must be paid directly to the host (amount not included in the price of the stay).

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.
