Hello, we are Massimo and Rowena, two very different people living harmoniously with our cat Romeo and a regular visitor, Giulietta, Romeo's girlfriend.
Massimo is a simple Italian whose family has lived in Figline for generations. His father is the first mechanic of the town so they were the first ones to have a car in the village. As all Italians, he loves his mamma (both his parents have passed away).
Massimo works as a leather cutter for Gucci and spends his past time walking (a lot) by the river Arno, and having coffee with other locals at the piazza bar. He cooks simple Italian meals at lunch and dinner and we both like going around flea markets and Tuscan countryside on weekends (yes, you can tag along!)
Rowena is a bohemian traveller who has lived in Paris, Dubai, Singapore, Manila, Côte d'Azur, Brussels, Thailand. She is an engineer who has worked in cosmetic marketing and designs travel products for her own social enterprise. When not travelling, she works at home or at the piazza. She is 80% hermit, 20% party animal.
Massimo's "bad" side is he likes to keep the kitchen clean in his way. But he is patient in teaching Italian, fixing around the house and is very helpful and sincerely likes good people.
We are quiet and easygoing, we respect your privacy but are here for you should you need a chat or any help getting around.
If you are more traveller than tourist, would like to experience living the Italian life, a balance of nature and community with both locals and fellow travellers, have easy access for daytrips to Florence, other neighbouring Tuscan towns and outlet stores, come stay with us. And discover the beauty within you under the Tuscan sun.
Massimo and Rowena
