About Philippa Mannino
Hello, I am Philippa Mannino. My husband, Gaetano, is Italian, I am English. We met in Rome when Gaetano was in his last year of university and I was working for the UN. Since we married, we have moved continually between Italy and the US. We now live in Connecticut. We have friends and family spread throughout Italy, and chose Tuscany for its magical countryside and central location. Although we know the area very well, we are constantly making new discoveries that we are happy to share with our guests.
Philippa Mannino purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Philippa Mannino chose Cetona
Over the years we came to know Tuscany well and found that it was an excellent meeting point for friends we had made in various parts of Italy and Europe. Besides, who can turn down an invitation to stay in Tuscany! We used to stay in the glorious countryside of the Val d'Orcia area of Tuscany, but Cetona is much more convenient being a 15 minute drive from the Rome-Florence highway. The countryside is beautiful and Cetona is never swamped with tourists the way many other Tuscan towns are. Another convenience is the excellent rail service from Chiusi (10 minutes away) to just about anywhere in Italy.
What makes this apartment unique
We fell in love with the wide sweep of Piazza Garibaldi and revel in being at the centre of an ever changing canvas of activity. Our windows onto the piazza are the best seats in the house. So much goes on in our piazza: festivals, dinners, religious events. It is such a treat not to have to get in the car to go to the grocery store; everything is on our doorstep. The weekly market on Saturday mornings provide an occasion to buy everything from the freshest produce to the latest fashions.
