About Francesca Focosi
My The Tuscan region where I was born and where I live has always known how to amaze its wonderful fusion of nature and art cultura.Quello I love is being able to live surrounded by nature but in just a few minutes you can reach friends and share an exhibition d 'art together or simply take an ice cream company, or take a horse trail through the hills or bike and then cook together.
Francesca Focosi purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1999
Why Francesca Focosi chose Capraia e Limite
When we bought this house nestled in the woods on a beautiful hillside location we decided to renovate it and put our attention in every detail by reusing the original materials, however, making it comfortable to live there at best. Both my husband fell in love with the house and from the first moment we decided to make unica.Vorremmo that our guests can feel at home in Tuscany how we feel. It would be nice they shared our experience for their holidays in a unique and typically Tuscan.

Beautiful location with great Panoramic viewa
Spacious and well appointed. Centrally located in Tuscany. Really enjoyed our stay. If you’re there in November, I suggest dressing warm, the house does get cool. That aside, it’s an execellent place in the countryside.
thank you very much David for your review. however, I just wanted to point out that maybe you have not asked why there are thermostats in the house to set the heating that you probably have not adjusted with temperatures suitable for you. I'm sorry for this because you would have had a much warmer home.!
Our group of nine had an amazing stay! The house is everything you could dream of- beautiful, comfortable, clean and cozy just as you can see in the picture and even more so, -a true home away from home (if your home were a mansion in Tuscany that is...). The outdoor area is fantastic with wonderful views. Plenty to do in the area and if you like to cook you are in for a treat- the kitchen is just amazing. Francesca and David are lovely warm and caring people-we feel lucky to have met them. I would definitely come back here and highly recommend the experience!
Thank you so much! I hope you are here again. You are welcome any time.
