Meet Your Owner

Mr Morten Muggerud & Ms Mai-Lill Ibsen, Oslo Norway

Over the years we have travelled broadly, and found our favourite “spots” around the world. Places where scenery, people and atmosphere give you that good feeling. So Italy has been one of our favourites, from skiing in the Italian Alps to island-jumping in the Aeolian islands to wine tours in Piemonte and Toscana. The last five years or so we had been looking at finding a home away from home in Italy.

Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes David Cooper from Ottawa, Canada.

Many of our Owners and their guests are familiar with the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pienza and its renowned scenery, but what we particularly enjoy is the artistic way in which David played with its colours. The final result is a kind of abstract, dreamy shot that leaves us wanting to return on a warm sunny afternoon and throw down a blanket and take in the incomparable panorama of the Val d’Orcia until the sun sets.
