About Gemignani Lisa
From an early age I wanted to 'live' in Tuscany, and I'm very attached to my roots, as I was taught by my parents and my grandparents. Growing up then I met my wife, and has strengthened my and our Tuscan spirit, to the point of wanting to share with others. From our shared passion was born the idea of buying a house and planning our dream ...
Gemignani Lisa purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Gemignani Lisa chose Boveglio
Ever since we started to renovate the first brick of the house, our dream was to create a place where our guests can feel at ease, and entering, breathed an atmosphere of genuine familiarity. For us, the Tuscany is part of our lives: it is the air we breathe and the food we eat. And it's nice to know what it means to the tourists 'live' Tuscany ....
What makes this Cottage unique
Each house is divided when the house has its own characteristic: Casa Cielo has a sun terrace protected by stone walls that ensure the tranquility and superb views. And 'the angle that best characterizes it ....... Casa Terra has a Tuscan kitchen with stone fireplace. A room truly superb. Casa Pietra as well as being beautiful and in Tuscan style, has exclusive sauna and hot tub. While Casa Il Nido is ideal for a romantic break in two

View from the top
We really enjoyed our stay. Very picturesque setting after we had driven up the winding road to the home. Very neat and clean and full of antique furniture which went well with the area. Beautiful patio areas with fruit trees and flowers. Plenty of space for our family of 6. Highly recommend
Beautiful relaxing villa
This lovely villa gave us a real taste of Tuscany. We cooked, relaxed and enjoyed the views. There was room for all of us to have our own space, but also share dinners and conversations. The kitchen had everything we needed to do some real Tuscan dinners.
First of all ,you definatly need a car! The long and winding beautiful drive up is not for the faint hearted. You are well rewarded with the stunning views and serenity of the place. It is exactly what we expected. Everything was perfect , Luca was so generous with helping us with the wifi. We enjoyed the comfort and the views. The surrounding villages and city's are so charming. All in all we had a lovely time!
Thank you Lisa and Luca.
We would love to come back again! Much thanks,
Rene, Nelly, Victoria, and Frankie
Gorgeous light-filled home in a mountain village
My family and I stayed at Casa Terra over the Christmas holidays. Everything was as it claimed to be. In many ways, the house is even lovelier than the photos. Lisa and Luca were terrific hosts, even providing us with a Christmas tree and decorations! The house was warm, the kitchen great for cooking festive meals, the views stunning and the walks gorgeous.
It is a switchback road up to Boveglio so you do need to leave more time to drive places than the mileage would make you think, and the remoteness does mean that phone reception and wifi could be spotty but, if that doesn't bother you, you could not rent a more perfect place.
A perfect hideaway in mountain Tuscany.
Since arrival all the way to departure our stay at Casa Terra has been amazing. The owners - Lisa and Luca - were really kind and made sure that everything went smooth by making reservations for us and always being there when needed.
The house is located at a reasonable distance to all major cities and towns in Tuscany and Umbria as long as you have the transport.
Everything is serene and quiet guaranteeing that you'll have exactly what you came for - peace and quiet in a beautiful country.
I am my whole family are definitely recommending Lisa and Luca as hosts and their Casa Terra and look forward to visiting Tuscany again.

The house have be made out of an old farmhouse from the late 1700s, and have been recently renovated keeping the characteristics of Tuscan architecture intact, with original features such as beams, stone walls and visible terracotta ceiling tiles. The original furnischings have been skilfully restored and completed with arte povera furniture, giving the two houses a unique atmosphere, where the old the new are perfectly integrated, giving you at the same time all the necessary commodities.

Nearby, in the town of Collodi, it's possible to visit the park of the world's most famous puppet Pinocchio.... an event that the youngsters shouldn't loose.... and a unique occasion for the not so young too!!!!
