Dear Gregory, thank you for your review. I'm happy you appreciate the typical Tuscan landscape and our old stone house.
In order to preserve the beauty and autenticity of ancient feature of the house, we decided to mantain many elements of the original structure, both for the external and internal. It is for this reason you found a bit small space for kitchen and the typical interior design of Tuscan country house.
We consider it a strengh point. Regarding the cost of heating, it is specified in airbnb.
About the other weak points you underlined, I'll take in consideration as suggestions.
