Where you'll be

We will spend most of our time in nature, in my olive grove in the beautiful countryside of San Gimignano. We will be surrounded by a breathtaking view of the village and the valleys of Chianti. I live here in our 15th century farmhouse where my family has taken care of the land with love and respect for generations.
