Our home

The house is a portion of an old factory of bricks, fully restored, with common swimming pool and green areas and private (50 square metres) garden/patio and garage (30 square metres). Our two-floors apartment (100 square metres), overlooking the private garden and the pool, has a large open space as kitchen, living and dining room, 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and the other (presently the children room) with a single bed and a sofa double bed, two bathrooms (one with shower and the other with bath), and a small studio. The luxury restoration and the mixture of ethnical, modern and ancient furniture, the several paintings, masks and sculptures coming from all over the world makes it a very special place to stay. It is provided of all comforts and equipment, except from the television (there is a TV with DVD set but no antenna for TV channels) and air conditioning (which is really not necessary even in the hottest summer time because it is an ancient building with very thick walls). In summer you will love to come back at evening to this quite, cool place and refresh in the swimming pool after a long day in the hot and crowded town and in winter the fireplace will welcome you for a warming and relaxing stay. The place is also very suitable for kids (all the toys will be available for them) and animals

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four. Federica (42) and Fabio (49), working together in an Italian NGO (COSPE, that operates in the field of international cooperation, human rights defense and promotion, and our sons, Bianca (10) and Folco (2). Plus, Nina and Minou, our lovely and very easy cats. We are used to travel all over the world for working reasons, especially in disadvantages countries, and we love to enter in contact with different cultures and people…maybe with the home exchange enhancing our opportunity to visit also more traditional tourism locations- We had many other exchanges in Europe and US all very successfulls

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is located in Troghi, very small country town at 15 km from Florence, at walking distance from shops (food, hairdresser, bank..). It is accessible from the main road after 200 meters of dirt road surrounded by fields and forests, so being at the same time comfortably near to the town but also enjoyably located within the nature. It will be very easy to see around the house squirrels, hedgehogs, deer and pheasants and to hear boars (or see them running when you come back with the car at night). You can reach by car Florence (20 minutes) as well as the Chianti (our famous wine!) countryside and other historical towns in Tuscany (such as Siena and Arezzo, 1 h drive, or the seaside, 1,5 h). Florence is also reachable with bus (the stop is 300 metres from the house). The neighbors are two other families, a mother with two young children and a mature couple, very nice and helpful.
