About Martha Fay
I'm a writer who lives in Brooklyn, and the author of Chronicle Book's Rome Walks and Village Walks Tuscany.
Martha Fay purchased this farmhouse in 1991
Why Martha Fay chose Borgo a Mozzano
I bought the property while visiting friends because it was the nearest abandoned house and I wanted to do what they had done—bring a house back to life. I was a youngish widow, with an eight-year-old daughter. I hadn't the least idea how I would make it happen, but I wanted to be able to return regularly to Italy and this seemed like the best way.
What makes this farmhouse unique
What we and our visitors love about the house is its simplicity and authenticity, its spectacular view, and its connection to the past. It offers the intimacy of real Italy, with a minimum of modern distractions, and entree to a genuine and unfussy Tuscan town and way of life. By design, there is no TV, but there are plenty of books, pots, pans and fresh herbs to cook with, and a large stone table to sit around late into the night.
