Your hosts at La Tinaia, Tina and Franco
We are Tina & Franco, the owners of agriturismo La Tinaia. In our hearts we dreamed of a place to live in harmony with nature and this is how La Tinaia was born.
In 1997, we left our office jobs and life in the city to begin a new adventure. We took classes on how to make wine and olive oil, and are pleased to announce that we have created a quality product to offers guests from across the world who come to stay with us.
We personally took on the restructuring of the farmhouse and the decoration of the apartments. In many ways, you will be able to appreciate the little details that make this more than a vacation rental, it is a place you can call home away from home.
We look forward to welcoming you and sharing our dream with you!
