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
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.
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.
The house is very convenient, big enough for 3 couples and with very nice view and location.
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.
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
Norma, Kevin, Clara and Matt Lovell
