The double bedroom is on the top floor of a traditional Tuscan house (detached) with super views of the valley below. The property has a large garden and is situated at the top of a medieval village with the stunning surroundings of the Alpi Apuane National park.
The quiet and the natural surroundings of the Alpi Apuane give you a wonderful sense of space and freedom. (There is a swimming pool in the garden which is also available to guests.) At the same time Florence, Siena, Pisa and the Versilian coast with wonderful beaches are all very accessible (Viareggio is a 40 minutes drive from the house). For Winter sports Abetone, the ski resort, is just an hour away.
Guests have access to the main bedroom, the inside and outside bathrooms, sitting room, kitchen, terrace and garden.
Interaction with guests
My interaction with guests depends on them and how much guidance they require. I often accompany them but also allow them to explore by themselves where possible.
Other things to note
From the house there are not only fabulous walks through the mountains but also great local restaurants which are very reasonably priced. If you like your taste buds excited, there are food and drink tastings all over the region in the mountains and on the coast. It's well worth taking at least a few days to explore some of the local delicacies.
Simply to be courteous and respectful of the property and the environment.
Outdoor activities, languages, history and the natural world interest me. I believe health is a cornerstone of well being and offer my services as a guide both in the mountains and on the coast.
I enjoy meeting people who might be able to teach me something eg. how to cook a traditional meal or some other aspect of their culture and the company of people who are relaxed and who can give and take easily.
