accommodation

Guests stay in Jenny's typically Tuscan farmhouse 50 km from Florence and with lovely views over the Arno valley. The five bedrooms are small but pretty, with traditional furnishings. Each has its own bathroom. There is a large dining room where guests have breakfast and light lunches, and a comfortable sitting room with a log stove lit on cool days. Your host Jenny lives in the same house and is always available for information or simply chat! The house has a homey atmosphere, with books and pictures everywhere, while a friendly labrador and two cats offer affection if you are missing your pets back home. We all have dinner at a friendly trattoria a short walk from the farm. Wonderful Tuscan food cooked by jolly Franca and served with Chianti wine!
