Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am Australian and after 20 years living in London, I decided to move to Tuscany. 10 years ago I came here to recover from a broken heart and instead fell in love with a whole region! Then 8 years ago, after a blissful lunch of Fiorentina beef and the local red wine, I found myself a charming house! My aim is for people to experience the beauty and simplicity of this beautiful region (as I have been so lucky to do) staying in stylish yet affordable accommodation. I hope to provide an excellent service with personal touches like handmade soap and based on the feedback, I am pleased to have achieved this.

Why the Owner Chose Città della Pieve, Perugia, Italy:
I was looking for……...A traditional Tuscan style …renovated... rustic yet location but within easy reach of a …outdoor airport access! Not such an easy task given many of the properties I previously viewed didn't even have a roof! Then I came across Selve Vecchie. The property had been renovated keeping the rustic charm I was looking for yet with modern amenities. There was a large pool, ample outdoor space and topped off with panoramic views. The location was ideal. Only 5 mins away from the charming village of Citta della Pieve, which is on the border of Umbria & Tuscany. And finally, Perugia airport only 45 minutes drive away. I bought it immediately. I said yes on the spot!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When I lived in London, I would catch an early morning flight which took less time to fly to Perugia than it would to cross a busy, grey London. In Perugia, I would collect a car and drive to my house and unpack in time for a long lunch followed by an afternoon relaxing or exploring. Now I live in Tuscany, I am blessed with long lunches every day! But I will never take for granted starting the day with a cup of coffee, blue skies, sun and silence!
