Meet Your Owner

Rob and Nancy Chimsky, Kenwood, Sonoma, California USA

In 2006, we were seriously considering the possibility of purchasing a home in Italy, preferably in Tuscany and in the vicinity of Lucca. Nancy's maternal grandparents were originally from Lucca and we felt drawn to that area. We also wanted a place that we could share with others including Nancy's large family, Rob's small family and many friends who love Italy as much as we do.
