    I'm a 58 years old widow born in Switzerland, but living and loving Italy since 30 years! Together with my husband we built a big country house between the Tuscany hills and the green region of Umbria. Here we have been raising our five children who are now studying and working away. Currently, Im alone and there is always a lot to do, both inside and outside the house: we have 30 olive trees and we make our own oil every year.

    Im a open minded woman who traveled around the world and found her place here in the italian coutryside. The area around the house is truly beautiful and many tourists come here to spend their holidays. We live 25 km away from the Bolsena lake; the nearest mountain is also 20 km from here. The house is placed among very important and characteristic cities, such us Siena (80 km), Rome (150 km) and Florence (160 km). All of them are easily reachable by train or car. 15 km away from the house you can find natural hot springs and archeological sites.
