About Mrs Lucinda E Yorke
I fell in love with Italy many years ago when as a child I holidayed there often with my parents. As an 18 year old I went to live and work in Florence for 2 years and traveled throughout Tuscany and Umbria. My husband has a job which necessitates us moving house every couple of years, so we bought Ca de Luca to be our "home" and we return as often as we can. We have our own apartment within the house which we use during the winter months, which is not accessible for our guests. In the Summer we open up the rest of the villa for rent and for 3 weeks we invite friends and family to stay with us.
Why Mrs Lucinda E Yorke chose Citta di Castello
Primarily we bought Ca de Luca as a house to call home and for us to be able to have all our friends and family to stay. We fell in love with the property straight away, despite seeing many houses and despite the fact it was very neglected. The garden had nearly overtaken the house, there was a colony of bats living in the house and it was filthy inside. Over a number of years, we made renovations and improvements and did a huge amount of DIY. This was a joy for us as the housing provided by my husband's job didn't allow for us to make any changes or make the house our own. Umbria is a beautiful region, not maybe the classic Italy that everyone thinks of, which is Tuscany, but it is less touristy even now 17 years after we bought the house and there are SO many beautiful villages and towns to visit close by or just enjoy the tranquil and peaceful setting and lounging by the pool.
What makes this Villa unique
Ca de Luca is over 200 years old and has beautiful views across unspoiled countryside. It is easily accessible, being only 1.6 kms up a white road (as they're called in Italy i.e. an unsurfaced track). Many houses will be a long way from a road (which the owners won't tell you in their adverts!), so it's easy to get to the local shops, restaurants or to travel further afield for sightseeing.
