About

Fioroni

Fioroni is the current working title for the next chapter of our lives: to establish a boutique hotel in Eastern Tuscany.

The main driver is a property in Italy, which this website/ blog is focused on and, here, we share our ideas, enthusiasm, frustrations, and disappointments in making the dream come alive.

In case you’re interested… Fioroni are early-fruiting, Italian figs.
