About Simon Sudbury and Claudia Crescenzi
That little photo is me playing olive harvest supervisor during the All Saints school holiday at the beginning of November. We issue buckets, nets and ladders to the kids - who spend many happy hours up the olive trees - while we concentrate on the important things: taking in the views, lazy lunching, nattering away, poking the coals on the BBQ, strolling to a local vineyard. Very restorative.
Simon Sudbury and Claudia Crescenzi purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Simon Sudbury and Claudia Crescenzi chose Sant'Andrea
We saw a ruin on a hill while looking for a holiday home away from London's bustle. It was much too big for us, but the views led us to take the plunge, and after 10 years of renting, we are happy to have had so many happy visitors saying they would have done the same!
What makes this Villa unique
Friends and family groups and reunions. The setting is exceptional but what sets Buralla apart is being able to comfortably cater for every generation's needs and for no-one to feel hard done by. For example the downstairs suite, and level floors and accesses are great for the less mobile; on the other hand, there's a playroom next to the huge kitchen so parents can keep an eye on little ones if necessary while entertaining around the bar.
