About the Owner
About The Owner
We are originally from Washington State, but have been international educators for over 30 years. They have lived in Berlin, Athens, Melbourne, Manila, New Delhi, Osaka, Amsterdam, Jakarta and Rabat. Throughout our travels, we have spent considerable time in Italy, and have developed a love for the country, particularly the small towns out in the countryside. As our relationship with Italy grew, so did our desire to find a place to call "home" after all our years of educating around the globe.
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
Why The Owner chose Foligno area
As noted above, we grew to love Italy and enjoy the life in the countryside while having access to the cultural riches of Rome, Florence, Siena and Assisi. We looked for several years for something that "sang" to us, and finally found that place in a small hill town called San Terenziano. When we drove up to il Mulino, still under renovation, we knew immediately that we had found our home. We visit as often as possible and look forward to retiring there. Given it's location and beauty, we find that our relatives are more than willing to come to us!
What makes this house unique
The house sits on a top of a hill at the edge of the village, and everything is accessible by walking. Rome, Florence and Siena are day trips, and Assisi, Montefalco, Todi and Orvieto are easy half day outings. At the same time, we can enjoy the peace and pace of the village. The area is largely agricultural and the sweeping views are ever changing because of it. Quite simply, it is "home", and our circle of Italian and international friends in the area continues to expand.
