About Marie and Lorenzo

The property was inherited by the current owner and host Giovanna and her family. Before embarking in hospitality Giovanna worked as an international lawyer in the nearby city of Florence however, today she spends most of her days preparing to meet her guests not only at Casa Giovanna but also at the family's other nearby properties which offer its guests a farm stay opportunity. Giovanna's brother works the surrounding farm land and breeds a domestic pig from the region of Tuscany known as Cinta Senese. The Cinta Senese pig carries a DOP status which indicates a high quality product with protected designation of origin. in addition the family also produces a high quality extra virgin olive oil.

Giovanna speaks perfect English and looks forward to welcoming you to Carbonaia.

Marie and Lorenzo are the property managers who help Giovanna with the booking process in addition to assisting guests with ideas of what they can do and see in the area. They are based in the nearby Medieval town of Vicopisano which is approximately 35 minutes away. They are able to assist in organising cooking courses and private chefs in addition to wine tours, taxi's and private drivers should you need them.

Why Marie and Lorenzo chose Palaia

The farm estate has been handed down through the generations. The family business had been in quarrying stone in the nearby area. The business had been extremely successful and the family invested in a farm with lots of land. Over the years part of the farm had been sold off however, many buildings and land still remain. Most of the buildings are now holiday/vacation rentals and part of the land is still used for farming and the production of olive oil in addition to landscaped gardens and a pool terrace.

What makes this apartment unique

Farm holidays offer the traveller a unique insight into the rural life in Tuscany where a traditional life still exists outside the bigger cities and more popular tourist areas. The properties at the farm retain original features such as beamed ceilings, terracotta paved floors and open fire places. The interiors offer rustic simplicity with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Children will delight in having plenty of space to explore and rediscover nature. Adults will love the tranquility and the chance to discover a more authentic Tuscany.
