Why Rob Tarasio chose Sarteano
Italy is an amazing place on earth and Tuscany is the cherry on top. When we were searching for a property in Tuscany, we knew that we wanted to share it with other people and visitors to Italy, so it had to be central, off the beaten path, close to a major highway and train station, and have a fresh charming allure. The town of Satreano was the place. With the friendliest people, fantastic family owned restaurants, coffee shops, history and characteristic beauty. Everyone that visits, immediately feels connected and at home and longs to return. The apartment is a charming, beautifully restored home dating back to the 11'th century. It's a jewel within a jewel.
