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.

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 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.
