Very peaceful and quiet. Due to an illness in their family, we never got to meet Silvia and her family.

This little place is such a fun place to stay in Italy. As many others have said, it is picturesque and has all the elements of a fun visit to Italy. We had a very unfortunate experience of having our luggage stolen out of our car in Pisa and Sylvia and Fabio went out of their way to help us. Sylvia helped to negotiate with the police and helped us to get the things we needed to go on our way. We were so grateful for their warm hospitatlity and for being "unknown" friends for us in a time of need. They are wonderful people and their little place reflects that. We had food in the fridge when we arrived and it was cozy and comfortable. You will enjoy staying in this delightful place!!

Sylvia and Fabio were absolutely wonderful!!! They went above and beyond looking out for us and making sure our stay was enjoyable. We couldn't possibly think of anything else they could have done for us. Sylvia and Fabio were very welcoming, the apartment was pristine and the information they gave us on the surrounding areas was extremely thorough. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer, but will most certainly be returning in the future.

Silvia E Fabio User ProfileSilvia E Fabio is a superhost.

Hi, we are Silvia and Fabio, a 35 years old couple. We planned our honeymoon in the USA in 2012 with AIRBNB and really loved it! We are really into this way of traveling: it's about meeting people and deeply understanding the country you are visiting. Since some of our hosts have turned into friends, we can say we made a life experience out of it.

Since summer 2013 we are also hosts, as we proudly own a breathtaking rural retreat that is a dependence of the country-house where we live. We chose to share the beauty of our guest-house, because we love Tuscany and especially Lunigiana. It's the place where we decided to live and work, leaving Milan three years ago. We left one of the biggest city in Italy and we were welcomed in a little community of 300 people; in the same way we will welcome you, bringing the world to our home. Even though we are respectful of the privacy of our guests, we love to meet people, sharing local food and talking about music. Actually, we create music for a living.

We are both fluent in English, on parle assez bien le Fançais y hablamos un poco Español tambien!

Ciao, siamo Silvia e Fabio, una coppia di trentacinquenni. Nel 2012 abbiamo programmato il nostro viaggio di nozze negli Stati Uniti con AIRBNB e ci è piaciuto davvero molto. Amiamo questo modo di viaggiare: si tratta di incontrare persone e capire profondamente il paese che si sta visitando. Dal momento che alcuni dei nostri padroni di casa si sono trasformati in amici, possiamo dire che i nostri viaggi sono stati un'ottima esperienza di vita!

Dall'estate 2013 affittiamo la depandance della casa di campagna dove viviamo: una location, a nostro avviso, davvero mozzafiato. Abbiamo scelto di condividere la bellezza della nostra guest-house, perché amiamo la Toscana e soprattutto la Lunigiana. E' il luogo in cui abbiamo deciso di vivere e lavorare, lasciando Milano tre anni fa. Abbiamo lasciato la città e siamo stati accolti in una piccola comunità di trecento persone: accoglieremo allo stesso modo chi porterà il mondo a casa nostra!

Anche se siamo rispettosi della privacy dei nostri ospiti, ci piace incontrare persone, condividere il cibo locale e parlare di musica. Scrivere musica è in realtà il nostro mestiere.
