Ciao a tutti!
I'm Costanza and I'm born in Florence and live here with my boyfriend Knut who is Norwegian and our wonderful son Leonard.

The villa was perfect - packed with old world charm but with with all modern facilities necessary for a perfect family holiday. Situated a short walk away from shops, restaurants and trains to Florence (€1.50 and 15 minutes by train to Florence). The Belloni Filippi family were lovely and very helpful helping us plan our daily excursions to some beautiful places. One of the highlights of our week was the tour of the 15th century farmhouse and the unforgettable five course meal prepared by the family. Only regret - we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely be back !!!!
