                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About: My name is Petra, I'm 40 years old, live in Genova (north Italy) and teach tennis. As a second job I'm managing, together with my sister Alexa, my parents properties.

                  Why Radda:
                  Villa LisiDor, Villa PetrAlexa, Villa EnriMar have been our secret places where we spent our regenerative holidays in a marvellous natural setting away from daily chaos. We have preserved them jealously, putting all our loving care to make every villa always more comfortable, unique and unrepeatable. Not a long time ago we decided to share them with people who, as we do, love nature, the tradition of simple things and appreciate the care for every little detail, typical of a domestic management. I love to know when people from foreign countries come and appreciate our beautiful land and feel at home when they stay in our villa: that's my greatest satisfaction! ... We warmly welcome you!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Spacious and comfortable, Villa PetrAlexa will permit you to rediscover the luxury of simple things: …wake up in the morning and appreciate the peaceful sound of silence which surrounds you, …enjoy complete privacy in the middle of woods, hills of vineyards and olive groves, …relish a savoury “Fiorentina” cooked on the barbecue in the garden or on the fireplace in the house, …take pleasure in the wonderful garden as the fragrance of rosemary, lavender and sage fills the air. …all this at half an hour from Siena and 40 minutes from Firenze !
