Casa della Famiglia


La Casa della Famiglia. Because it's not just Michele's house. Her cousins Mario & Valeria purchased it and remodeled the home to the magnificent house it is today. Ergo Michele and husband, Herb, have named it La Casa della Famiglia.

Thalassa Locanda B&B


My cousin Mario and Valeria have created a delightful B&B in Arcidosso mere steps from Michele's home. 

They are consistently ranked with TripAdvisor's Award for Excellence.

Casetta Ione


Here is our tribe, less our two oldest sons standing in front of the Casetta Ione--my grandparent's home for decades.

Valeria's Gourmet Cuisine


Your Welcome "Benvenuti " and Farewell "Arrivederci" Celebration Dinners will be held at La Bastarda Rossa, where Valeria's gourmet cuisine will delight you!

Plan on three minutes walking--at the most.
