About us

       Our journey started in 2002 when we met a luxury villa owner in Tuscany who was looking for a young couple that were willing to live on the property and manage it for private rental.Our focus was on taking care of the property and serving  its clients, making them fill like it was their own home but without any  worries. Before long ,the business grew from one villa to five, giving us the opportunity of multiple task experiences and having the joy of being an important part of many people's holiday time.

      In time, we fell in love with Italian food and wines, the charming Tuscan landscape with its hills and cypress trees and the way of life, so much so that we decided to buy a home here in the quiet countryside.

      Living in Tuscany has enabled us to expand  our professional fields far beyond property management and in-home cooking with numerous cuisine, cheese, wine, olive oil and tobacco courses, becoming members of various associations like "Associazione Professionale Cuochi Italiani", "Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori Formaggio", "Associazione Italiana Sommeliers". 

      As time has passed, we have learned that it takes more than skill and knowledge to be successful hosts.It takes dedication and passion to provide a unique villa experience for our clients.Nothing compares to the ability to be free to change the menu every day to take advantage of the best seasonal ingredients and our clients' desires, to pair the food with local wines, to be creative and express ourselves and  feel the conviviality of an open kitchen where we can create new relationships and give joy and satisfaction to the others.

      We would love to have the opportunity to meet you and share our love for Italian food, wine and culture in the beautiful Tuscan hills.
