I'am coming originally from Germany, but I live in Italy since 1976. My wife Anna and me are married sind 1979 und we have two children, who actually study at University.
We bought this house, because it was our dream: 20 years we lived in the village of Sovicille and this house was our dream: it was the best situated house of Sovicille (alone on the hill, but also near the village with all comforts) and at the same time an old house with a history, which is rooted deep in the middle ages.
We have bought this old house, where the plants grew into the cracks of the walls, in 1999, and we restored it completely with traditional materials and new (bio-) technics. The columns of the 12th century, the absolute peace of the wood, the meadow behind the house with birds, deers, sqirrels etc., which we can see: simply an idyll, in the summertime, in spring, in autumn and also in the winter. In the summertime also the pool does his contribute to relax and refresh.
