Autumn is here. Nature lovers, our home is perched on the edge of a village with a private garden and a great view. It is close to Volterra with endless miles of dirt roads and open fields and villlages to walk to. Great for walkers, cyclists, couples, artists, writers and centrally located between Florence, Pisa and Siena. Our magnificent resident chef, Judith, will make breakfasts and any additional meals you desire. Our border collies, Dante and Lapo, will happily play ball.
This is our home. We have a full library of English and Italian books, an enormous fireplace for when the weather turns cool or wet, and a farm family next door, with the famous Cosimina and her fresh eggs. Giuseppe, her 50 year old son, a sculptor is partially blind, but he still rides around on his motorino, so if you see someone looking like the red baron, zipping along the cypress lined road to Cedri, give him a wide berth. Palmerino, Cosimina's husband and Giuseppe's father, may ocassionally be heard yelling across the piazza. Fear not, he is not an angry fellow, but simply deaf. You want to make friends with him because if wild asparagus, black berries, mushrooms, truffles or wild boar are 'in season' he's always got plenty to share. The donkeys that keep escaping from Pino's garden to munch the grass on our lawn are harmless but hungry. Kiko, the village 'mayor' is a small brown dog that wins the heart of everyone (but Dante and Lapo) that visits. Paola, who can be seen sweeping most times of day in front of her house, loves to have a chat if you want to practice your italian. Her 40 year old daughter is the well educated Simona, and owner of 18 cats -- You want authentic Tuscany? Welcome to our home.

Judith, the resident chef is there to serve. Please feel free to ask any local touring questions and she will certainly be able to give you any practical information you might need. She will prepare your breakfast for you and you may make arrangements for her to make any other meal as well
There are two border collies, Dante and Lapo, at our home. If you have allergies to dog hair, though we are good house keepers, you should be forwarned.
