                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: We are not the typical apartment rental business .We are a small family of academics and are opening our huge home to meet with the expenses, meet new international people and make friends. I am a principal of a school where we teach Italian language culture and cuisine and my husband is a journalist/ economist . Our daughter, 25 finishing her second degree in Art History at Siena's university . We have a lovely small dog and a cat .

                      Why the Owner Chose Sovicille:
                      We bought the property 25 years ago with the dream to turn it back to its ancient splendor, keeping its atmosphere and respecting its ancient stones . We fell in love with the incredible site, the panorama, the quietness and its simple elegance. The villa is now composed of four apartments and we live permanently in one of them . It has been a great challenge that lasted a decade, and has given us huge satisfaction .

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                      Staying in our country villa will give you a taste of that world apart called 'Tuscany' , the quietness with no city noises, the proximity to the many cities and villages that made Tuscany a dream under the sun . Siena, Florence, San Gimignano etc. We know many nice places and are always happy to give tips, ideas, itineraries and organize a special day for our guests.
