Our home

The Home:

The Home Riotorto sits on a hill a midst two hectares of olivetrees overlooking Florence. It was built renovating and enlarging an old granary and has the charm of an old Tuscan countryhouse combined with a more modern architecture. Today it is 600 sqm and has sweeping views over hills and town. In addition to the olive grove and the garden with a romantic lookout, it has three terrasses for outdoor eating and relaxing.Furniture is mainly antique, two fireplaces, a billiard room, and a small winecellar complete the property.

I own this property.
