About Julian & Anna
My wife(Anna) and I (Julian) are British citizens, but both have some Italian blood and have lived on this property since we got married. I am essentially an extra virgin olive oil producer, but I also enjoy organizing wine tours. My wife is an English teacher in Italian schools, but her presence is fundamental for running this business. Anna is also an excellent cook and therefore has decided, if anyone wishes, to give a few cooking lessons (on the premises). Anna and I love living in the country and enjoy having guests who appreciate this beautiful Tuscan hamlet on top of a hill, but at the same time we are literally a stone's throw from Florence, where we wish to enrich our cultural and social needs !
Julian & Anna purchased this Barn in 1958
Why Julian & Anna chose Scandicci
This property is part of a hamlet which was bought by my parents in the late 50's. We decided to come away from Milan and live here, permanently, in 1971. We produced some of the best Chianti wine and an excellent oil, which was exported all around Europe, the US and Canada. I feel very attached to the place, for its approaches, the exclusive, magnificent views, the peace and quiet which makes it quite special and unique, right in the middle of the typical Tuscan countryside, but also very close to civilization!
What makes this Barn unique
The property is quite unique for its logistical position. Close to all the main roads leading to all the main Tuscan towns, close to the town centre, close to all the main supermarkets, small village shops and restaurants. A 800m private track road (1/2 mile) leading up to the property on a hill (belonging to the hamlet), avoids any potential traffic passing by thus adding a big plus note to this small paradise! Excellent for walks and birdwatching.
