About Yvonne Melli
We are Yvonne and Delfo Melli, your hosts. We came to the Garfagnana on holiday, fell in love with the area and were subsequently in a position to return and buy Casa Laura. We bought it as our holiday home but once Delfo retired we decided to leave the UK and make the permanent move to Italy. Fortunately, a decision that we haven’t regretted. Casa Laura is our home during the winter months and during the summer we live a few kilometres away in a small hamlet above Sillico. We have a passion for growing our own vegetables and a love of cooking, open spaces, walking, nature and history. All of which is possible and on the doorstep in this beautiful part of Italy.
Yvonne Melli purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Yvonne Melli chose Pieve Fosciana
We bought Casa Laura because firstly we fell in love with the spectacular views and secondly because of Sillico and it’s ideal geographical location. The village is small but full of character and history. It still has, unlike many of the villages in this area a thriving community which welcomed us from day one. It has a popular restaurant, bar and small shop. A short drive down from this idyllic mountain retreat and you are in Pieve Fosciana or Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, the capital of the Garfagnana where there are numerous supermarkets, restaurant, bars and local shops.
What makes this Villa unique
Because for half of the year Casa Laura is our home perhaps it’s not surprising that many of our guests comment upon how much the house feels like ” a home from home” during their stay. Popular tourist destinations such as Lucca, Pisa and Florence are all easily accessible whilst Casa Laura set within beautiful countryside has the perfect outside dining, swimming pool and garden to relax in. Because we live here all year round we have an in-depth knowledge of the area and it’s amenities and we are on hand as much as required to answer any queries and assist in whatever way we can to ensure our guests have an enjoyable and memorable stay.
