About the Owner
Hi I am Phil. My wife Silvy and I have owned and managed our 400 acre farm since 1992 when I moved to Italy from the UK. We started to rent out one apartment in 2002 and enjoyed having people around so much that we decided to restore a huge old 17th century barn and farm house which we turned into 6 holiday rental apartments.
From the Owner
“We were lucky enough to inherit Palazzo Rosso Farm from my wife Silvy's family.”
