The space

If you are 2 people, please, make sure you have selected 2 in the n. of guests box on the top right as the price per night will increase of 30 €.

We offer a room and bathroom (both just for you, not shared) in our house, the bed can be one double bed or 2 separate beds (just let us know).
It is a restored old farmers house in a quite unique corner surrounded by olive trees and woods. You can also use the living-dining room. Internet is available (cable or wifi) and we offer tea, coffee and wine. The garden is big and offers several cosy spots to rest and relax. We lived abroad for 13 years and we speak English, Spanish, French, Italian and Catalan.

Breakfast is included in the price. Gennaro has a local farms organic products shop www . Solmeo . it , so we use just their high quality products: organic fair trade coffee, raw milk from biodynamic farm, fruit organic marmalade, ancient grain sourdough bread, fresh local organic fruit... If requested, we can also offer organic vegetarian lunch and/or dinner including organic local wine (12-15 €). No use of the kitchen to cook food.

A warmer and different experience compared to hotels and B&B, ours is an ideal place to rest, enjoy nature, visit Firenze, Chianti and Siena through beautiful panoramic roads. If you are mainly focused on visiting Firenze and not particularly interested in nature or sharing a bit of countryside life, there may be more practical places.

The house is 2 km from the nice Chianti village of Impruneta (20 mins walk / 4 mins drive), famous for the best worldwide artisan terracotta vases producers, and 13 km from Firenze old town (20 mins drive, 30 mins by bus – we are happy to take you to/from the bus stop in the village's square any time 4 mins drive).

Jo and her friend Momi often organize "Cooking together workshops" in which we cook together a special supper, slowly, chatting, with some wine, music and tasting our work. For lunch we would start preparing at around 10am with the aim of sitting at around 1:30pm. For dinner at around 5pm, sitting at 8:30pm. The cost per person is 100 €. In case you are interested, please, just ask us.

Gennaro, my partner, from time to time, also organizes beautiful panoramic bike rides in the Chianti hills, trough ridges, woods and passing by a 11th century monastery surrounded by vineyards. Mountain-bikes & helmets are rented, in case you are interested, please send us a message and we'll write back to you with details.

We stayed with Joana and Gennaro for eight days and we loved it. They are very nice people and make a real effort to make you enjoy your stay. The room is spacious and clean, the house is cosy and the cats and chickens are enthousiastic.. The possibility to join for dinner was great, the food is amazing! If anybody is looking for a place to stay near Florence, this is it!!

Our 2 night stay at Joana & Gennaro's Tuscan countryside home was magical, just as they described it. We arrived late in the evening after a busy day seeing all of the sites in Firenze and were ready to relax. We were greeted by them both and shown the property and lead to a beautiful open terrace. We sat there looking at the stars and Gennaro poured us each a glass of wine (and left us the rest of the bottle) and a lantern to guide us back to the house when we were ready to retire. Beautiful music was playing in the background as their family of 4 prepared their dinner. We felt so relaxed instantly in this breathtaking quiet setting. The next morning I was excited to see the place by daylight. Everywhere I looked was amazing and I couldn't stop taking pictures. So beautiful,quiet and relaxing. We also participated in their airbnb experience the second evening ( organic cooking class& dinner) which was wonderful as well. We helped prepare the food with Joana's instruction and then we all ate outside at a farm table with 15 people from different parts of the world. Thank you Joana and Gennaro for making one of my dreams come true (having an authentic Tuscany experience and a cooking class in Italy!) I'll never forget it.

Joana is a wonderful host who paid attention to every detail during our stay. She was super welcoming and offered us to join some activities she was preparing during our visit. The house is cozy and nice and the surroundings are dreamy! We definitely recommend Joana as a host and her house as a place to stay.

Absolutely incredible space that is well worth the visit. Whether you're looking for a few days respite from traveling/city-life, or an easily accessible haven-- this space is perfect. The house is lovingly cared for by a fantastic couple and their wonderful kids and the experience feels very authentic. If you enjoy napping under olive trees, elegant meals, and robust conversation then this place is not to be missed.

We are a couple, Joana (Spanish) & Gennaro (Italian), with two children of 14 and 11. We work mainly from home, Gennaro in the field of organic local products (www . Solmeo . it) and Joana organizing cinema related events (Tristanamedia . c o m). We deeply love nature and try to reduce our environment impact. We lived abroad for several years, 9 of which in London. After working in finance, Gennaro is very interested in ecology and sustainability. We speak fluently English, Spanish, French, Italian and Catalan. We love meeting new people and exchanging ideas and experiences.
