You are my only guests in my B&B and you have a bedroom (2p.) and a living (with 4p. both are bedroom) and a private bathroom. Incl. Italian breakfast. Are you with more, then an extra room is in the basement. There is also a minibar. In restored ex hay-barn on a hill with hudge views from the terraces and the private swimming pool (only to share with me) on Tuscan vineyards. Between Florence and Siena. Ideal for culture and walking.
B&B where you will be my only guests. Bedroom (2p.) and a living room (with 4 p. they become two bedrooms), with minibar and private bathroom. On the first floor of a beautifully former hay barn, now turned into a comfortable home and with splendid panoramic views on the Tuscan vineyards. If you are with more persons, then there is an extra room in the basement. Central position between Florence and Siena (30-50 km). Ideal starting point for people who - like me - are passionate about nature, culture, gastronomic experiences, walking and cycling.
The price is on the basis of 2 persons for both rooms, incl. Italian breakfast, sheets, towels, bathrobe and tourist tax.
The total renovation of this beautiful hay-barn was completed in 2013 in Tuscan style with heavy chestnut rafters and ‘cotto’ tiles on the ceilings. There are also modern and artistic details like a steel cutwork stair handrail and gold mosaic in the bathroom.
The cosy rooms (two, 10 square meters each) are upstairs. One bedroom is tastefully designed with a double bed (or two singles), desk and cupboard. The living (or bedroom) next to it has a double bed (or sofa), a desk, two chairs, a cupboard and a filled up bookcase. Both rooms are connected by a little balcony. The bathroom is well equipped with a very comfortable shower with gold mosaic, basin, toilet whith bidet and a radiator for towels. On the corridor you will find a filled up minibar and a table with everything to prepare yourself some tea and coffee.
The living room can be used upon request as a bedroom (+ 2p.). In that case you will get an extra shower space on the ground floor.
There are several terraces where you can enjoy your breakfast. You can also use (with me) the private pool during season. Furthermore there are geothermal cooled floors (free until a max.), there is a private parking spot and free WIFI for guests.
The house is on top of a hill with a splendid view on the Tuscan landscape with the beautiful hills, vineyards and cities of art. The wide views make you enjoy both sunset and sunrise from the terraces…breathtaking.
The temperature inside the house is always agreeable in summer time, because the hill is the highest one in this area (420 m.)
The house on the hill, ‘Casetta’, is the ideal starting point for people who – as I do – love nature, culture, gastronomic, walking and cycling. Normally I will be at home and can give you suggestions for sightseeing trips. Some periods I am not there and therefore I prepared a table full with flyers and information about the surroundings and suggestions for sightseeing trips.
I like to welcome guests who share my passion for art, history and walking and to make them feel at home during their stay in my ‘Casetta’.
You have two rooms with private bathroom on the first floor.
There is also a table with everything you need to prepare coffee or tea and a fridge.
There are seats on the terrace at the back and near the entrance which you can be used by my guests. The swimming pool is used by myself on certain hours. You can have breakfast on these terraces or in your living.

I will normally be present in the house and I’ll gladly give you tourist information. In some periods I won’t be there, so I’ve prepared a table full of flyers, booklets, business cards and other information about the region. I have my own separated spaces in the house and outside and I like my privacy there. Naturally, I will respect your privacy as well.

The price is on the basis of 2 p. and includes Italian breakfast (if I am not at home, you can use my kitchen to prepare the breakfast by yourself), sheets, towels, bath robes, use of the swimming pool, tourist tax.
Children are welcome, but I am not responsible, especially not for the use of the swimmingpool. Animals are welcome, for example a dog, but we should discuss it in advance. In the house lives a very sweet female dog, liberated from a shelter.
Smokers are welcome if they smoke outside. The use of the kitchen is not included in the basic price, but we can discuss the use when paying a supplement. Other house rules you will find at the location.

I like to have guests who love the silence of my hill. Who like to walk or to go out to see all the culture. Guests can also stay here to spend a sabbatical period. The places will inspire you! In "Casetta", the house on the hill, musicians can prepare their concerts as there is a piano in the living. The apartment in Fiano has an antique oven in the kitchen.
I am Dutch and was working as a lawyer and researcher in the Netherlands. I started to work in Italy as well in 1994. I worked here as a touroperator and group-leader during trekking holidays in Italy. Now I have during summer this B&B and give Italian lessons in Holland and Italy as graduated teacher collaborating with Italstudio in the Netherlands. I love the Italian atmosphere, Italian food, living outside. I know the nice places in the neighbourhood which you can visit, where you can walk or where you can bike. I love music, have a grand piano which musicians can also use and I can give you advice about trips and concerts. I collaborate with Italian friends to make your stay even more Italian. Sometimes we cook nice Italian dishes for my guests... The nicest thing for me is to make people feel at home in my house on the hill at Lucardo and in the apartment at Fiano.
