Do you know "Casale Fontibucci was, by repute, originally the home of Michelangelo’s stonemason?"(The 70’s House edited Wiley and Sons)
The Tower portion dates back to 1100s, the rest of the building was added in 1500s. Surrounded by olive groves, cypresses and vinyards, you can relax in the park and swimming pool solarium and “touch” the Brunelleschi’s Dome before getting down to Florence. Florence, 25 minutes far , offers breathtaking sunsets from the Casale!!!

I’m living with my mother Aurora at Casale Fontibucci from the 70’s; the first 10 years have gone by living abroad, Africa & South America, long periods, and coming back, from time to time, enjoying the peace and calm of the Casale with the family.
Getting to know new and different cultures from mine was an incredible experience. This truly ment to enrich and open my family & my self to the world: I, in fact, from the very first steps, I followed the family and I learned, as her first language, .... Spanish!
In the early 80's, we chose to live permanentely at the Casale; my mother began teaching Italian and history at Hotel & Catering School in Florence.
This was also a great experience that has enforced herself to rediscover our Tuscan tradition of food and all those activities connected to the Casale such as oil, wine, traditional plants quince, iris and lavender.
The passion for nature has also "infected" myself, who has started cultivating lavender and, in particular, carrying on a Tuscan traditional handcraft such as the “Barilotto” (little barrel) to scent our wardrobes.
I like cooking typical Tuscan cuisine but, alternatively, love the Brazil and Argentina recipes too. My mother loves reading narrative books and especially anthropology she was graduated; we both lose ourselves in city life - Florence is to reach by car in 20 minutes - to keep always updated on exhibitions, conferences, concerts and other activities.
We'll be happy to meet your curiosity about history, art and of Florence and Tuscany.
I will take care from the first contact, to information requests, reservation; I'm always available on email and phone. We can speak Italian, English, French and Spanish.
