Hi, I am Antonella and your hostess
Agriturismo Casa dei Girasoli was started in 2008 by my parents. They love the rural traditions of Tuscany & the country house which has been handed down from generation to generation in our family. Their passion was contagious and, in 2014, I decided to leave my own career to follow my own dream and work alongside them in sharing our small corner of this paradise with visitors from across the world.
Our "Sunflower House" is a haven of peace and we are sure you will enjoy an unforgettable holiday in the fresh country air of San Gimignano, enjoying delicious local food, the outdoors and discovering the most beautiful places in Tuscany.... or just simply relaxing at the house, by the pool or in the garden. Look forward to meeting you soon!
