About Cate Willemsen
I'm Australian and my husband is Dutch. We moved to Italy from Australia with our 2 children. Our friends thought we were mad but we felt compelled to follow our dream. I don't regret it one bit, I'm not saying it wasn't hard moving countries, it was and still is a struggle at times but we love our life now, we love Southern Tuscany and the natural beauty of the Maremma. This area has so much to offer and is such a great central location. It is right in the countryside but so close to the many beaches available in this area: Marina di Grosseto, Castiglione della Pescaia, Principina, the beaches in the Alberese National Park . I love Saturnia Thermal Hot Springs, it's a little piece of heaven just sitting there in all it's glory. You can relax or you can go out to any of the many 'Sagras' throughout the summer that Italians love to host. Eat, drink, dance and try the local cruisine and entertainment for a very reasonable price. We speak italian and love the warmth of the italian people. A conversation with an italian is a breath of fresh air, it's a free theatrical performance and it's everywhere! Take a short drive through the picturescue hills to visit the village of Scansano, famous for it's wine. Then if you keep driving you will come to the Saturnia hot springs. I'm learning to cook Italian food and I'm getting pretty good at it now. I can make a good Ragu, Lasagna, Eggplant parmigiana, fresh pesto Yum!!! The boys love soccer and they've learnt a lot being in Italy. Hard core! they picked up the language so fast and I was really jealous, it took me a lot longer! Me and my family love sharing this place with others .We meet so many interesting people from so many different countries. Look forward to meeting you!!
Cate Willemsen purchased this country house / chateau in 2012
Why Cate Willemsen chose Grosseto
We bought this property because of the location. It is immersed in beauty but it is so close to everything. We looked at so many properties with a common theme: they were beautiful but just too far from everything. When we found this house we felt like we had struck gold. It's just so beautiful, the changing colours of the landscape throughout the day. The variety and richness in the seasons, I never get sick of looking at it. You wake up in the morning to this little piece of Serenity. I love it!
What makes this country house / chateau unique
What amazed me about this house was the gorgeous views from every room in the house, even the bathroom. (One day I will put a bath in there. Aahh ,Heaven.......) we thought it was paradise. The only reason we saw this house was because we had just enrolled the boys in a school in Istia D'Ombrone and we thought we would take a drive around the area afterwards. We came across a small sign saying in Italian. 'For sale by owner' with a phone number we immediately rang them and the rest is history..... Best decision of our lives.
