Pitigliano, Southern Tuscany

The place is in the old historic centre of Pitigliano, southern Tuscany, in the hills above La Maremma, in what was once an ancient Etruscan settlement.

Renovated by local builders, the apartment is south facing, with several windows and skylights, and gets lots of sun. With a unique bathroom, a waterfall shower, an open wood fire place and an iron wood stove 'stufa' for spring and autumn mornings and evenings - wood easily arranged and close by - the place has high-speed internet/telephone, electric cooker, period furniture, and all the necessary comforts, only without air-conditioning (and microwaves etc), the air coming from the surrounding countryside as good as it gets.

About Me
Valentina and I currently live in Sydney, Australia and have homes in Italy and France (Pitigliano, Tuscany and Cannes, Côte d'Azur). Valentina is on an EU Marie Curie fellowship at UCL, London. She is doing work with Macquarie University, Sydney over 2018/2019. Recently, I taught at University of Sydney, Masters in Publishing, a subject on which I have written a book for Sage Publications UK, and did my MA and PhD on, while we were both studying in London. I write novels as well. Early career I was a producer/director for film and television, working in Hong Kong, Sydney, Rome, London. We are fluent in Italian, French coming along.

Richard and Valentina were a wonderful couple to have in my apartment while I was away on sabbatical. Communication was always clear and friendly from the first contact, payments were made without incident, and the apartment was left in an impeccable condition, complete with a kind note left on the table! All in all, they were very thoughtful, considerate and organised people who approached things with maturity and friendliness. I can't recommend them highly enough to anyone thinking of renting out their place. I'd have them back any time! Excellent Kumi 2/22/2018 4:07:00 AM
