About the Homestay
I live in a medieval village in Tuscany with my husband Luciano and our nephew Tadinho. We have a large house with a veranda and a garden that includes 2 apartments.
Our daughters are married and live not far from us. The village has a bar and a grocery store and a restaurant.
The apartment available has a large bright room, with bathroom and shower, a large room with a veranda and a kitchen. Siena is at 17 Km, Florence at 40, Colle Val d'Elsa at 8 Km and San Gimignano at 15 Km.
We have a large vegetable garden with many vegetables that you can use for cooking: tomatoes for bruschetta and pasta, courgettes, aubergines, peppers, salads, basil, parsley, sage, rosemary. You can also buy wine produced by our brother-in-law Luigi.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Simonetta, dans sa grande maison dans laquelle nous étions totalement autonomes. L'accueil a été formidable, très amical, nous conserverons un très bon souvenir et si nous revenons en Toscane nous envisageons de séjourner à nouveau, si c'est possible, à Strove qui est un charmant village et très central pour les nombreuses visites à effectuer
Our 7 day stay was fabulous. Simonetta and Luciano were very friendly. Simonetta's English is very good. It is an excellent base to explore the Tuscan countryside especially with Simonetta's suggestions. She very kindly gave us great advice on the local attractions. Thank you Simonetta
Au coeur d'un petit village typique de la région de Sienne, Simonetta nous accueille chaleureusement. La chambre est grande, fraiche. Terrasse et jardin accessibles. Simonetta a été de très bon conseil pour visiter la région de Sienne et le Sud de la Toscane.
