About Emily

My original place was Siena. I live in Lavanda House since 1997 , after a long process of restoring. I love this spot because I love nature, and I like to share my house with people who have not so often the possibility to be surrounded by nature and silence.

Emily purchased this villa in 1995

Real peace and relax

  • 5 of 5

The house is really nice and what we liked so much was the peace you feel in every corner of the house. The villages of the area are really beautiful , specially Anghiari where we stayed also for many days and Monterchi. We love this area of Tuscany and Umbria.

Profumo di ginestre

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato 5 giorni in completo relax e la cosa che più mi ha colpito è il profumo della natura, degli alberi che fioriscono e soprattutto delle ginestre . Lo consiglio a chi ama il verde e cerca proprio un posto dove rilassarsi. Su consiglio dei proprietari abbiamo visitato a Monterchi l'affresco di Piero della Francesca. Davvero sorprendente!

We want to come back !

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time !! Each of us found its special place , the children always in the pool, my father under the gazebo painting the view, my husband reading in the pool area and me in the garden or in the meditation room. I suggest a visit to Anghiari , Arezzo and Cortona and a little village with a strange name..Citerrna . The owners are really nice and helpfull .Thank you !

Bella, calda ed accogliente con gli spazi giusti per raccogliere il numero degli ospiti

  • 5 of 5

Ci abbiamo passato l’ultimo dell’anno, sono stati 3 giorni meravigliosi in cui abbiamo trovato anche la neve. Strutture meravigliose immerse nel verde, tutte ristrutturate , curate e ben arredate , ma la cosa più bella sono i proprietari, Emily e Fabrizio , la loro bontà, disponibilità ed accoglienza ti fa sentire a casa.

Se volete evadere dalla città con amici o parenti ve lo consiglio vivamente.

Attractions:The Valley, a mixture of art, history and nature offers a glimpse of that Tuscany and Umbria which are only partly known and where there is no mass tourism, where peacefulness andenjoyment of life follow the rhythms of nature. It happens that the tourist who goes in search of Arezzo, Monterchi, Sansepolcro e Caprese Michelangelo will follow the same route as Piero della Francesca in the journeys he made for his work. The famous renaissance painter, who came from this area, is a rare case of a great artist who continued to live and work in the place where he was born. His major works are in Arezzo, Sansepolcro and Monterchi. Caprese Michelangelo is where the great artist Michelangelo was born. In this area there is also one of the most beautiful mediaeval village of Italy, Anghiari , and not far from Arezzo there is Cortona , an incredible etruscan city with such an incredible view that reaches the Trasimeno lake.valtiberina : experience the warm evenings, abundant vineyards and olive groves, welcoming people, medieval hill-towns and gastronomic delights.
