Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Carolina is an Italian American artist and sculptor who has cherished a lifelong love affair with Tuscany. She divides her time with her family between Tuscany and New York.

Why the Owner Chose Casciano SI, Italy:
Villa la Pace (Peace Palace) is a dream-come-true for me. Ever since my parents took us to Siena at the age of 14 I cherished the idea of owning a home in Tuscany. I have made some wonderful friends in the area, have enjoyed some phenomenal food and wine, and participated in the fascinating culture of the Palio of Siena. This part of Tuscany is 1 hour from the most beautiful, clean beaches of Tuscany, Castiglione della Pescaia. There is also horseback riding nearby, and wonderful walks. At night you can see all the stars in the heavens.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Since I am American raised, I wanted to bring the home to a high level of standard for my guests and family. There is 24/7 abundant hot water. There is a breakfast terrace which overlooks the wooded backyard and from which you can see Siena. There is a flat screen tv with many English and Italian DVDs. There are two full baths, comfortable mattresses, and each room is designed in an elegant Tuscan style. My personal artwork is all over the house and on the walls.
