We decided 9 years ago to move from the San Francisco Bay Area to Italy with our then 8 year old son for one year. That one year has turned into 9 years and we are still here! We bought our "dream' house in the heart of Chianti 5 years ago and took a year restoring it. All of the furnishing and accessories were purchased in France. We brought our decorator over from California and she helped us create what is now a magical home. We have shared our home with many, many guests over the years and everyone leaves yearning to return. We hope that whoever takes the home treasures it as we do.
