Our home

We have a beautiful second home in the hills about 7 miles outside Florence. The cottage is attached to a large farm house where my parents live year-round. It's a one-bedroom cottage with a sofa bed in the living room that can sleep 1 child. An additional crib or small bed for a second child is also avaliable. Outside the cottage there is a beautiful garden full of flowers. It is very quiet and peaceful. The views of the sourrounding hills and vineyards are spectacular.

Who we are

  1. We're a family of four with two sons, ages 5 and 10. We'd like to find a swap for the upcoming year 2007-08. Ideally we'd like to go to either Florida or California Dec 26 2007 to Jan 1 2008. But since this is our second home, we're not necessarily looking for a simultaneus exchange. Our cottage is available from September 2007 on, just email us and we'll figure out the dates. Places we're interested in visiting: San Diego & Santa Barbara and other places in CA, Florida, Newport, RI and Cape Cod Massachusetts.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The cottage is located about 2 miles from the small village of Strada in Chianti and about 7 miles from Florence. The Chianti area is where the famous wine is made. The house offers easy access to the city of Florence where you can find shopping, museums, restaurants, etc. You can also visit many nearby villages such as Greve in Chianti, Impruneta, San Gimignano and many more. There are also several great restaurants within one to three miles from the cottage. However because of the rural location, you will need a car to get around.
