About Lucia Cuzzolin
We are a young couple in our sixties and as almost 99% of Italians we had a dream: a farmhouse in Tuscany! We lived in Milan and had a satisfactory working life but we felt unsuited to the pace of such a busy town. It has been a real lucky break to find Montemiliano 10 year ago. It was a ruined and uninhabited hamlet on the hills near Monterchi, with 10 h of uncultivated land; nevertheless when we first saw the ouline of its roofs we immediately fell in love with it! We worked hardly to restore to their former glory the complex and 7 years ago we moved and completely changed our lifestyle. We had to learn almost everything but are now very proud of the results of our efforts and glad to share them with our friends and guests (there isn't really a big difference among these categories).
Lucia Cuzzolin purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Lucia Cuzzolin chose Monterchi
We think Monterchi is not one of 'The Most Beautiful Villages in Tuscany' (see Thames & Hudson's), it is really “The Navel of the world”! Set in the heart of Renaissance Italy, it is brilliantly placed for exploring both Tuscany and Umbria and for a full immersion into the best of Italian culture. There is always somewhere new to visit and to discover by car, foot, and even... by running! Monterchi has a great feel of the real Italy, and the local villagers go out of their way to make you welcome. For art lovers, it is home to the famous 'Madonna del Parto' by Piero della Francesca. The grander cities of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Perugia and Assisi are less than 1 1/2 hour drive and the airports of Rome, Pisa, Forlì, Florence, Perugia and Rimini are easily accessible.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Montemiliano is just 1.5 km from Monterchi and with an easy walk you can reach good restaurants, bars and grocery stores. For the more athletic, there are many sports you can practise nearby: horse riding, tennis courts, golf course. Despite the closeness to the village the location is really stunning and you can relax in peace and privacy with no fear to be disturbed. Our true flagships are the position, set on the top of the hill with a 360° view on Tiber Valley, and the panoramic swimming pool. We are not excellent photographers but it is quite impossible to convey such a perfect landscape and the intense emotion it arouses. Our panoramic swimming pool could be a real problem for you: it will be difficult to leave the clear water to perform the hard work of turist.
