Properties at our gorgeous Ville degli Olivi estate in Lajatico, Tuscany are selling well, as its charm and unique location attract buyers from all over the world.
Our latest buyers are an American couple, who have bought a three-bedroom semi-detached house which they designed through our unique interior design services. Having spent many years searching for an Italian holiday home before they came to us, we are delighted that we have helped them become the proud new owners of something very special indeed. Here’s their story…
Our clients had been looking for a holiday home in Northern Italy by themselves for many years, but struggled to find something suitable. Too often they found time shares or fractional ownerships which were expensive and restrictive in terms of when they could use them. With limited knowledge of the diverse residential market in Italy, they required a bi-lingual Italian expert to find them a rustic holiday home they could make their own, which was easy to maintain and something they could visit whenever they wanted to, all within the charm of a traditional Italian village. Their new holiday home also had to be in an area which had easy flight access to the U.S.
Real Italia’s Solution
We added value to our clients by offering them something really unique for Italy. Ticking all the boxes, we successfully agreed a purchase on our highly regarded Ville degli Olivi development.
Ville degli Olivi offers all the charm and character our clients expected. Lajatico itself delivers a genuine Italian experience through its sights and history, offering a true insight into village life for Italians. When visiting its many charming shops and restaurants, our clients were particularly impressed at how the local people greet everybody on a first name basis. Aside from its obvious beauty, Lajatico is also perfectly located for flights to and from America via Florence or Pisa airports.
Our Interior Design Solution Service enabled our clients to pick and choose their furniture, fixtures and fittings, whilst our innovative Proper Management System means they can enjoy their holiday home care free at a fraction of the maintenance costs the market normally offers, and rely on us to obtain good letting potential should they wish to let their property out when they do not use it. Ville degli Olivi delivered absolutely everything our clients were looking for.
Our clients said:
“Although we were thousands of miles away from the property while it was being constructed, I have never before worked with anyone as competent as Real Italia. Without hesitation I would recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase property in Italy who is looking for a genuine Italian experience without any hassles of foreign ownership. Because it is a British company, there is no language barrier.”
Alongside our architect, Alberto – the brother of opera singer, Andrea Bocelli – we have transformed a XVIII ancient house on the Ville degli Olivi estate into a collection of five one and two-bedroom apartments. In addition, there are three houses with three bedrooms, which have been newly built in a traditional style.
Combining period features with sustainable technology, the properties make life comfortable without compromising architectural aesthetics and the environment. The apartments boast either a terrace or a private garden, and like the houses, overlook the olive grove and surrounding Tuscan countryside. The grounds include stunning gardens and a heated swimming pool offering beautiful views of Volterra.
No other part of Tuscany offers such a conveniently central location or such easy access to all these destinations.
With three bedroom house prices starting from €500,000, and one bedroom apartments from less than €300,000, prospective buyers can tailor each home to their taste and needs through our Interior Design Solutions, by which all properties can also be fully fitted, furnished and decoarated.
The Realitalia homes in Tuscany then are fully serviced, including key holding, a professional on-site concierge service and lettings management, thanks to our local Management System: http://www.realitalia.co.uk/management/
Lajatico itself offers several excellent restaurants and charming shops, all reachable by foot. Food lovers can enjoy delightful fresh fruit and vegetables direct from the local farms as well as excellent wine producers. Horse-riding and golf facilities are not far away by road including one of the best golf courses in Tuscany (Castelfalfi). Several pretty beaches are also close by, and Florence, Pisa, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano and Lucca are all less than an hour away.
