Michael and Grace, a couple from New Jersey, lived in Bologna five years after they were first married. After returning to the USA, their hearts remained in Italy, having 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 that they purchased 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 sage are cultivated on both properties for enjoyment by their guests.

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

Mario, Giuseppina and Elena are their staff. Mario is a professional farmer, caring for the olives and the vineyard, as well as maintaining the villas, green lawns, flowers and the pools. Giuseppina caters delicious meals upon request, and does a superb job keeping the villas spotless, and bed linens and towels fresh. Elena speaks English, welcomes the guests at arrival, facilitates check out at departure, assists with the catered meal service, and is able to babysit upon request.

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