Who we are

  1. I am Michelle and have owned my house for 26 years. As I now live in Australia I use my house as a base when visiting family & friends in Europe. This is the perfect home for relaxing & recharging the batteries or enjoying the wonderful hospitality of the Tuscan people & exploring the many sights Italy has to offer. My family love to visit me, especially my grandchildren from the UK on my annual visits. As both Rod & myself are both reaching retirement age we would like the opportunity to stay for a while in the UK.
    This is my first attempt to house swap.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

For more than 300 years the country estate of "Gechena" has quietly nestled into the rolling Tuscan hills in the province of Arezzo. "Casa Michelle" is a beautiful renovated farm house, which was once part of the original "Casa di Patrone",(house of the landowner). It is situated in the Casentina Forrests National Park. This is formed by centuries old forests of Oak, Beech & Chestnut, it also provides a habitat for deer, wild boar & many different species of birds & wildlife.
It is just one hours drive to Florence, twenty five minutes to the main autostrada (A1). Three hours from Rome.two hours to Sienna.
We are close to the main village of Talla, the birthplace of Guido Monaco, the inventor of modern musical notation, the nearest city is Arezzo, just a twenty minute drive away.
