Michael and Grace, a couple from New Jersey, lived in Bologna, Italy for five years after they were first married. After returning to the USA, their hearts remained in Italy, having experienced and savored la dolce vita. Both of Italian heritage, their fathers and numerous relatives born in Italy, it was their dream to plant roots in their native land. In 1998 their dream became reality when they purchased Santa Cristina. The renovation was such a positive experience they purchased their second villa Domus Gratia in 2003. Michael and Grace produce olive oil exclusively from the 1000 olive trees on their properties, as well as red and white wine from their vineyard. 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!

The Perfect Escape
We just returned from 10 days at "Domus Gratia"--a house I can only describe as perfect in every way. The setting is remarkable--atop a high hill overlooking a national park with long views in almost every direction. (Talk about sunsets!) The enclosed property is equally remarkable--beautifully landscaped with trees, perennials, annuals and flowering shrubs, and filled with quiet areas for reading or exploring. And the main house? Four large en suite bedrooms, a huge kitchen (with a stand-out stove), two extremely comfortable living rooms and a huge dining room. (There are also three outside dining areas with tables and chairs.) The bedrooms and common areas couldn't be more inviting or appealing. Add the irresistible swimming pool on the property and the top-rate staff and you have all the makings of a great vacation. We certainly did, and will definitely return!

July 25, 2007
I was just reviewing our pictures from the month of
June that our family spent at Domus Gratia for my
50th Birthday--I want to go back now! Everything
from the furnshings to the views to Elena and her
family were better than we even anticipated. It
really made the trip--especially with many
visitors--very easy. I loved looking through all the
binders of information you left as well...it was nice
to know we had the "inside scoop." Thanks again
for such gracious hospitality, and I hope we can
come back on my 60th!
I passed a most splendid ...
I passed a most splendid holiday at Domus Gratia in the middle of June. The accommodation was undoubtedly the best I have ever rented. The rooms (and beds) were large and the living spaces comfortable to accommodate 13 adults. Kitchen equipment and facilities made cooking a joy, although I would recommend getting the housekeeper to cater, and also a visit to the restaurant at nearby Titingano (a veritable belt-loosener and spectacular value at 20 Euros a head).
The highlight of the holiday would have to be the pool with knockout views. Indeed some members of our party were unable to motivate themselves to leave the property at all during the week while the rest of us explored the region. Nearby Todi was unspoiled and characterful, Perugia lively (and well served by underground escalators to bring you into the city centre), Assisi unmistakeable (almost - don't ask), and Orvieto spectacular. My personal favourite visit was to the cascata del mammore, pretty impressive, at least by European standards.
All in all a fabulous time was had by the entire group. It was a shame to have to leave, but I look forward with anticipation to a future visit.
