Luca is half English and half Italian, and lives between the two countries. He splits his time running his beautiful estate in Tuscany and being a qualified archaeologist in Italy, where he runs two excavations with an American-British-Italian team of archaeologists and specialists. Like his ancestors, Luca has a passion for his estate, which is well known for its beauty. The estate includes a working farm producing olive oil (we have over 6,000 trees), arable crops, wine, fruit and much more, and from the 1920s-1960s Monteverdi was a model estate for Italy winning many agricultural prizes. He has meticulously restored many of its buildings to their former state, while including many 21st century comforts. Sant' Antonio has been one of his favourite projects, and has been converted from a tenant farmer's house, that had cattle and pigs on the ground floor stable, to a luxury villa that has rented well for 2 decades to mainly English and American clients. Sant' Antonio was then renovated again a few years ago, and is improved every year with small upgrades. Luca has a charming and efficient staff on the estate, including the maids who work in Sant' Antonio and the gardner/pool boy who come down every day (except Sunday), and who will make your stay all the more enjoyable.
Luca purchased this villa in 1912
Why Luca chose Civitella Paganico
Sant' Antonio is surrounded by a large and historic family estate, owned by the same family since 1912 when it was a whopping 11,500 hectares. The villa has a lot of character, combining Tuscan and English styles such as terracotta floors, wooden beams and comfortable furniture. The house has a fantastic large private pool, large garden with outdoor seating and dining areas on four outdoor terraces with fantastic unspoilt views over Monte Amiata, The Appenine Mountain range and the wild Maremma. Despite being traditionally Tuscan in style, the house has wifi, Sky TV, DVD, Apple TV, Stereo, Ping Pong table, selection of board games and a card table, and a fully equipped kitchen. Sant' Antonio also has a fantastic and friendly staff who can look after you, and who are all local to the estate. Staff are included in your booking for a total of 4 hours per day during which they do a general tidy up, however they can at extra cost also shop and cook (these extra services are organised directly with the staff). The staff have many years of experience as the house has been a hugely popular house for renters over the years. The villa is also up to date with all EU, Italian and Regional Tuscan health and safety requirements.
