Why Livia Manera Sambuy chose Cetona
Because it is a spectacular part of Tuscany. Because of it's unique location, completely immersed in the countryside and so close to the village. Because the house is lovely and unusual: a 14th century house, with one bedroom, bathroom and closets on each floor, and a large living room on the ground floor.
What makes this Villa unique
The proximity to the village allowed my children to grow up here free to come and go by themselves, enjoy an ice cream in the village square or a tennis match. As for myself, "Ombra's house" is and ideal "writer's retreat", secluded by not isolated, and if I don't feel like driving, I can forget the car for a whole week. There are very few things sweeter that coming back from a dinner in the village at night, and walk home under the stars, in total safety and beauty. The proximity of my two housekeepers make also life easier. On request, they clean, wash, iron, cook for you and they also provide fresh vegetables from their vegetables gardens. The house terraced garden with olive grove leads to the swimming pool area. Mind that there are many steps: stairs both to reach the bedrooms and to go to the pool. A terrace shaded with vines an wisteria offers a place to eat, with wonderful views over the Val di Chiana and Città della Pieve.
