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.
