  • Description


    We are a husband and wife team (American and British). My wife has lived in this beautiful region for 37 years she is an excellent cook and fluent in Italian. We enjoy meeting new people and welcome the opportunity to host some workaways. We purchased the XVIII century noble villa & stable, set within 8 acres of land back in 2006. Authentic restoration was undertaken on both properties, plus adding a stunning roman style swimming pool and unique landscaping amidst the centuries old olive grove. We are now semi-retired).
