Our house is an old country house recently restored, with a big garden (20000 m2 of olive trees ,cypresses and a little wood), on the top of a little hill (350 mt). We offer for exchange a little but comfortable apartment in the first floor (1 double bed-room, 1 room with twin beds, living-room of 18 m2 with kitchenette, shower, little balcony) with independent entry from the garden( which we sometimes rent in summer to tourists), and our partners can live there in every summer period of 1-2-3 weeks,better between may and october.

Who we are

  1. We are a little family (Gabriella,52, teacher- Stefano,59, software analyst- Leonardo, 14)from Florence. We like nature and music (especially playing piano, guitar, drums and singing).
    We already had three successful home exchanges (Holland, France, Greece) and we find this is a very nice experience, as we like to know people allover the world. We would like to travel to your home 1-2 weeks during the school holidays, better in the second half of july or in august, if possible.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in the green of Chianti, the famous region of wine production , 16 Km south of Florence (30 minutes by car to city center), in a very good position to reach and visit the most beautiful tuscan cities: 40 Km to Siena, 20 Km to San Gimignano, 90 Km to Pisa and Livorno (harbour of ferry boats to Elba island), 100 Km to Grosseto beaches (Nature park). You can reach us by car through the ancient roman road "Cassia" (connecting Florence to Rome) or the high-way Florence-Siena (4 Km far away from us), but there are also good bus connections to Florence and Siena (every hour). In the neighbourhood (1-4 Km) you find horse and bikes rent, wine and oil farms, a sport center (pool, tennis, fishing lake), a car service, many little typical restaurants and some good food shops. Everywhere around you can walk or bike on panoramic ways or visit medieval towns and little romanic abbeys with fresks and interesting architecture. At 5 Km you find bigger villages (San Casciano, Tavarnelle) for supermarkets, cinema and services of every kind.
