About Nora & Michael
I am very pleased that you are interested in our home. I myself grew up near Florence and am Italian, a classical philologist. I spent with our four children 17 years in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. By now I am a retired grandmother of three grandchildren. Tuscany's historic towns, its friendly people, its simple and tasty cuisine, its intense smells and colors had already captivated me as a child and now back to my roots, I am pleased again and over again when I see that guests can share this experience. I want to promise in no case more than I can hold. Michael, my husband and I appreciate your rays, when you arrive after a long and tiresome journey and look forward to spend your vacation at our just discovered home and property. I would be extremely pleased to be allowed to get to know you personally, your Eleonora
