Vegetables, rosemary and herbs are cultivated on both properties for enjoyment by their guests. Michael and Grace enjoy traveling to Italy with their children, parents, relatives and friends. Their villas are splendid for celebrations and gatherings. They welcome their guests with open arms. Come.......Experience Italy and 'la dolce vita!' Welcome! Benvenuti!
