Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We have been an expatriate family for many years, Franco working for EXXON CHEMICALS and Mimma busy teaching Italian at Bruxelles University and growing a family of three children. We chose Tuscany to retire, thanks to a sum of 'plus' factors such as weather, landscape and culture. We bought a group of rural ruins in Chianti and year after year we brought them back to life, shaping the wild land around. Franco took good care of the abandoned olive groves and now twenty years later, we sell worldwide our extra virgin olive oil. I take care of guests who are coming back year after year and am busy with our culinary program 'Tutti a Tavola' (Everybody to the table) or 'The Tuscan Mammas' (as many American fans have started calling us). Many family members and friends made the same choice and all enjoy warm friendship and camaraderie.

Why the Owner Chose Radda In Chianti SI, Italy:
Because Chianti is the pearl of the charming sophisticated 'rustic' gentle place called Tuscany.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
I can't really put into words the emotions I have experienced here at Muricciaglia: I felt peace at once, I came home.
