About The Owner

Michael and Grace, a couple from New Jersey, lived in Bologna, Italy after they were first married. After returning to the USA, their hearts remained in Italy, having experienced and savored la dolce vita.

Both of Italian heritage, their fathers and numerous relatives born in Italy, it was their dream to plant roots in their native land. In 1998 their dream became reality when they purchased Santa Cristina. The renovation was such a positive experience they purchased their second villa Domus Gratia in 2003.

Michael and Grace produce olive oil exclusively from the 1000 olive trees on their properties, as well as red and white wine from their vineyard. Vegetables, rosemary and herbs are cultivated on both properties for enjoyment by their guests.

Michael and Grace enjoy traveling to Italy with their children, parents, relatives and friends. Their villas are splendid for celebrations and gatherings. Their welcome their guests with open arms.

Come....Experience Italy and 'la dolce vita!' Welcome! Benvenuti!

The Owner purchased this villa in 1998

We stayed at the Villa in June 2010 with two other families. There were eight of us total. This was a great house with lots of room. It was easy to do day trips to Cortona, Florence etc. The fresh garden was at our disposal when we wanted to cook. Also, close to a great little restaurant down by the river. Todi is a very friendly , quiet town. We are looking forward to returning. The UGA crew.

After exhaustively searching the internet for a house near Todi we finally settled on Santa Cristina to celebrate our 25th anniversary with our two children this past July (2007). The pictures here, while nice, do not even come close to depicting the beauty of the setting and the home. And this is a home,not some "house" with rental furniture and the basics. Grace has the eye of a decorator but has put heart and soul into every piece and setting. The pool is gorgeous with a view to match. You cannot possibly want for anything for Grace has thought of it and made it available. All you have to do is shop for your food at one of the nearby markets, relax by the pool after a hard day 'on the cobblestones' of the local villages and soak up the Umbrian sun. Caretaker Mario and his daughter Elena were helpful and gracious. My only regret is that we can't enjoy Santa Cristina every year.

Thank you Grace for your patience and extra help with my questions and reservations. Your parents couldn't have given you a better name.

If you've gotten this far in the review your next step should be to reserve your week, or two, in one of the most wonderful places you will ever experience.

Cheers and ciao, Steve and family
