About Jane Young
When I'm not at Casa Toti in stunning Abruzzo, I live in Salisbury, UK and co own a shop in Stockbridge selling Italian shoes and accessories - property and shoes being 2 of my passions! I used to be a music teacher which combined my other 2 passions - teaching and music. With 3 children - on the verge of leaving home, life is busy.
Jane Young purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Jane Young chose Castilenti
Casa Toti was a new build. I bought a beautiful flat olive grove and spent months planning the position of the house as well as the design of the house with lots of input from a great friend and of course a fantastic local surveyor. The views are stunning all year round.
What makes this Villa unique
Because it was a new build we could aim to be as energy efficient as possible. The central underfloor cooling system is a fantastic alternative to air conditioning, keeping the house at a constant ambient temperature in the heat of the summer months.

Casa Toti for Abruzzo wedding
Perfect location, beyond fabulous house, everything you could need and more. Children loved the trampoline but too busy to use the fantastic pool. Views were the best in the region. Close to winery, restaurants, stores, ... welcome book is invaluable! Perfect communication with Jane! Thanks for making your perfect home available to us!
Our stay at this house was perfect. It is equipped with all comforts and views are amazing!
Casa Toti provided the backdrop to a once in a lifetime vacation. It was an absolute pleasure to stay in such a beautiful yet laid back home for a week. All systems worked as advertised, the kitchen was well appointed, and the pool was very clean and inviting. The surrounding area of Abruzzo is beautiful, with both mountains and sea close by. We wpuld recommend this villa without hesitation.
Couldn't have been better. Perfect !!!
The home and views are amazing. Everything was so well thought out for accommodating a large family or group. Location and local amenities were great. Loved the area. Jane's recomondations are spot on.
Endroit magnifique !
Le plus bel endroit que nous ayons loué jusqu’à présent. La vue est à couper le souffle! La villa est superbe et tout y est pour passer de merveilleuses vacances en famille! Grande piscine, ping-pong, pétanque, barbecue,... tout le monde s’y retrouve; petits, grands, très grands pour passer de moments inoubliables. Et la région est magnifique!
Wij hebben enorm genoten van onze vakantie. Een geweldig huis met prachtige uitzichten over de bergen en valleien van de Abruzzen. In het huis was alles top ... nette slaap- en badkamers ... mooi zwembad .. waar wij ons heerlijk hebben vermaakt. Wij hopen zeker nog terug te keren naar deze locatie
