About Darren and Jill Vescovi
The Vescovi family all live in Preston, Lancashire. The owners of the property Guido and Brenda Vescovi spend lots of time in Tuscany where they go to relax and enjoy their retirement. Their son Darren and his wife Jill organise the bookings from the website. They enjoy regular holidays at Casa Vescovi especially the skiing in the winter and the brilliant weather in the summer.
Darren and Jill Vescovi purchased this House in 2002
Why Darren and Jill Vescovi chose Pescia
Guido, who is Italian, wanted to buy a property in Italy to enjoy during his retirement. They knew the area around Vellano very well and have friends there. They like the fact that the house is located in a quiet real Italian Village but also that there are lots of amenities closeby. They enjoy looking after the house and the garden and have made many changes since buying the property. It is very much a family house and lots of their friends and family regularly stay there with them.
What makes this House unique
The Vescovi family enjoy the peace and quiet of the location of the house and the magnificent views. The local restaurants all serve genuine local food and all the locals eat there. The house provides the family with an excellent base for exploring the rest of Tuscany and Italy. Although they have been there many times now they still find something new to do on each occasion.
Lovely home away from home!
The house was great - nice, clean, and very comfortable. The beds and pillows were just right, and oh my the view!!! We felt so relaxed, and enjoyed the entire time we were there. I have told all of my friends about the house so hopefully you'll be hearing from some of them. Thanks for such a nice house!
Thank you so much and we are glad you enjoyed your stay!
The house is very convenient, big enough for 3 couples and with very nice view and location.
Thank you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay xxx
A little piece of heaven
The perfect place for a relaxing holiday but close to many beautiful places to visit.
The house had everything we needed and was so beautiful and peaceful. The covered balcony was perfect to sit with a glass of wine at the end of the day.
The most perfect place to stay
We really enjoyed staying in your beautiful home in Tuscany. Everything was so perfect and the house totally exceeded our expectations. We were blessed with great weather and so spent most of our evenings on the terrace enjoying the view. We loved the village especially Bistrot restaurant and also found restaurant Carla on our last night.
Thank you once again for a perfect holiday

vacances familiales en toscane
maison grande et confortable avec une superbe vue, nichée dans une ruelle charmante, au calme et au frais
tout le confort pour se croire chez soi, la maison est parfaite pour des vacances avec 4 enfants. il y a même une cave à vin pour déguster du chianti
la maison a été un peu difficile à localiser car les ruelles n'ont pas de nom affiché et la boite à clef ne ressemblait pas à ce que nous avions imaginé mais des villageois ont gentiment accepté de nous aider malgré les difficultés linguistiques
le trajet en montagne pour rejoindre l'autoroute est un peu long mais la toscane vaut la peine de supporter ce petit désagrément. La proximité de Pistoia, Florence, Lucques et Pise est un atout pour cette location. les propriétaires ont même pensé à laisser de la documentation touristique bien utile
nous nous sommes régalés avec la campagne, les villes fortifiées, les fresques, les campaniles, les multiples églises et aussi la gastronomie.
en 5 jours, nous n'avons évidemment pas pu tout voir, il faudra qu'on revienne!
mini vacances et maxi satisfaction de toute la famille
un grand merci pour la qualité de cette location
Merci beaucoup ! Xxx
un petit paradis
Une maison bien plus vaste que ne le laissent supposer les photos. Une vue imprenable de la terrasse ombragée. Un village plein de vie sur cette période de fête!
Une distance acceptable de Florence et Pise. (ne pas négliger Lucca)
Merci Beaucoup !
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
