Artistic cottage in the hills of Florence facing European University

The apartment is a cottage situated beneath the terrace of the main villa, which is inhabited by my family.
It is a one bedroom flat, fully furnished, with a quite spacious kitchen and a bathroom with shower.
The place is very luminous thanks to the wide windows on both sides of the bedroom, one of which has its own issue on a nice terrace with a stunning view over the hills of Florence.
A parking spot is also available and in house you have heating, internet and a wash/dry machine.
No A/C (it doesn't get too hot during summer) nor dishwasher.
The villa is surrounded by nature, mainly olive trees fields!
Florence city centre is 25 min away by bus or 10 by car, and the neighborhood is composed by many other villas so the hills is quiet; the European University and its archives are just in front of the house as many other universities find their headquarter in this area.
We don't have pets in the apartment but there 3 dogs living in the garden and a few farm animals on a more distant area.
We have decorated the cottage with warm colors and furniture to fit the rural ceiling and floor and the warm light that all day long enters from the tall windows, it really feels like a home.

About Me
Born and raised in Florence, Italy, I have worked for many years in the fashion industry, first as an artisan, then as vendor and company manager, later as tutor and professor both inside the company and in fashion universities in Florence and Milan. Afterwards, I moved to the music industry called as band manager and tour manager, also starting to develop my own artistic flare. I also model in fine art photography and frequently collaborate with top rated photographers at international level. In order to be free to travel more, I have taken a position as English coach inside the fastest growing online English course that helps me support my newest project where I promote awareness and help women who are experiencing a trauma due to hair loss. Hoping to encourage more and more women to rebuild their confidence after this trauma, I am looking to move to London where this project could have a welcoming nest thanks to its open mentality and long reach connections all around the world.
