                              Year Purchased: 2010

                              About the owner: We are Silvia and Stefano We live with our baby Andrea in on apartment of the villa , wich has owner garden and private entry . We bought the villa Giardo 3 years after filming the whole Tuscany fascinated by this beautiful region. We are dedicated full time to renovate the villa and fix the park.We finished the work in the spring of 2009. Here was born our small, sympathetic Andrew, who made even more magical whole. We are glad to realize a dream and after all the frenzy (we own a restaurant) we are finally in a place where time has stood still. 'Harmony' seems a word that embodies what we think we have found here. 'Harmony' because everything is related: people, nature, animals, colors, scents.

                              Why the Owner Chose Greve:
                              For us it was a choice experience to banish from our lives the frenzy and chaos. Beyond that Villa Giardo is a bit of history, culture, tradition to live every day with the option to be 15/30 minutes to cities such as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo.
