Casa Porta Verde
I have spent more than 25 wonderful years in Tuscany. As a student in Florence back in the late eighties I fell in love with Italy. I immediately loved the mentality, the people, the beauty, the food and the wines.
I have traveled all over the world and seen the most amazing places, but I have always returned to Tuscany and Italy, here I feel relaxed and at home. In 2014, spending twenty five years going in and out of this beautiful country, a dream came true…..
I did not look at many houses. This was the second one and even though it was green, orange and yellow all over the place I felt a special connection. The views and the atmosphere in this very tiny village of Piegaio Alto just made me feel good.
I have spend the last tree years painting walls, restoring floors, established new bathrooms and an extra kitchen, put in a new and energy friendly heating system, built a pool and created a new area around the terrace, not to mention all the garden work.
I am proud of the result.
