We adore the Tuscan lifestyle - the land, the food, the wine and its people. It was December 2000 when I discovered the villa (by chance) after it had been abandoned for over forty years..The vast nature of Anqua, the abundance of pure water and the potentiality of what was left of the architectural structure led me with all my enthusiasm and passion into the 10 years restoration process. The goal was to transform the XVI century Mill of Anqua into a place where the untouched nature and the comfort of modern day coexist. I wanted to feel the silence of the most beautiful nature in a place of comfort and luxury. My favorite hobby is sailing. During an international regatta in 2009, in Newport RI, I met my wife Lisa. We love being a part of local village of Radicondoli - the people are exquisite and the village is extraordinary. Receiving guests at the villa gives us a genuine feeling of happiness. We look forward to assisting you in any way. Whether before, during and/or after your stay at the Villa - we want your vacation in Italy to feel as though you have somehow fulfilled a dream. Lisa is American, an avid yoga practioner and teacher. I am Italian and a passionate dancer and chef. The most beautiful creation is our daughter Eva who was born July 2011. For us, it truly is a great pleasure to share this little corner of world with our guests, some of whom have become dear friends. Thank you for staying with us!
