Who we are

After obtaining my degree at the University of Amsterdam and having met Nicola on a research trip to Florence in 1992, I decided to give ‘life’ a try in Tuscany. I am still here and have put down my roots in the countryside of Vinci, with Nicola and our two sons.

In 2000 we had the courage to buy this old olive farm on the slopes of Montalbano. The position, the surroundings and the views are magic, the reconstruction of the house was NOT, but....

The result of this major project fortunately left us with the feeling of being lucky to live on this very special spot and the enthusiasm to share it with our guests; we hope that during your stay you'll be able to absorb a bit of the magic of it all and feel at home.

Nicola has always lived in this area, and has an artisan workshop down the hill in Empoli. His real passions are old-time motorbikes, on which he does lots of 'raduni' during spring and summer, and which he will be proud to show you.
He's become a great pizza-maker too and provides our guests with an abundant range of types of pizzas from our wood-burning oven.
