About the Owner

Hello from Petra and Alexa!

We both live in Genoa and manage our parents properties: Villa LisiDor, Villa PetrAlexa, Villa EnriMar, Casa Margit have been our secret places where we spent our regenerative holidays in marvelous natural settings away from daily chaos.

We have preserved them jealously, putting all our loving care to make every villa always more comfortable, unique and unrepeatable.

Not a long time ago we decided to share them with people who, as we do, love nature, the tradition of simple things and appreciate the care for every little detail, typical of a domestic management.

We love to know when people from foreign countries come and appreciate our beautiful land and feel at home when they stay in our villa: that's our greatest satisfaction!

... We warmly welcome you!

'Dear Petra,

We’re back in the real world and I keep on thinking about the fabulous view from your wonderful place. We really enjoyed ourselves! Your place was perfect—I loved the sitting areas in various places, the rooms were simple and tastefully decorated and the property well-maintained. Tennis every day was a treat! The kitchen was efficient—good for breakfast and lunch. Most dinners we ate out. I enjoyed my long walks along the roads lined with vineyards and olive trees.

Thanks so much for sharing.'

Ann Nerland, 31May-14June 2014



“We had a lovely stay! It’s the best villa we have stayed in, so well equipped. Thanks for then use of the tennis court and bbq. We hope to be back, thank you so much Petra!"

4 June 2005, Christina, Kent



"Another wonderful holiday here at Villa LisiDor! Tennis and swimming pool enjoyed by all. Daily bread and cakes available just up the road in Lecchi where you can also enjoy tasting wines.

We enjoyed our stay and will no doubt visit again."

26 August 2005, Teresa + John Copping, Norwich



"It is a perfect place to have a nice relaxing break. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and did not want to leave the house! Could have been one week longer!"

Beautiful views in a stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa and grounds are beautiful and you can tell a huge amount of effort goes into the upkeep and maintenance. The pool is huge with views of vineyards and hills as far as the eye can see. The villa is very large and beautifully decorated, spec'd out to a very high standard but still in keeping with the Tuscan tradition. Also has a tennis court which is a bonus! Petra the owner is most helpful before and during the trip. I would highly recommend this villa...a perfect Tuscan holiday house :)

Lovely villa in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Villa LisiDor and the Chianti region. The location is excellent, down an unpaved road surrounded by vineyards, nature and tranquillity. The owner was very helpful, before, during and after our stay and very accommodating.

We stayed in the villa before the renovation works that are planned, and we found the villa very charming with loads of traditional character, a big gorgeous private pool and a great tennis court. Though there is no air-conditioning, we never missed it as the temperature in the rural countryside is very pleasant and the villa is very cool inside. In fact we never even used the fans provided, even though it was hot in the cities in the surrounding area. We were travelling with a toddler and the villa was very safe, aside from the usual precautions required around the pool.

Radda in Chianti (about 10 mins drive) is a lovely little village with all the amenities you could need including lovely eateries and a very good supermarket. The villa is also very well located for day trips to Siena, San Gimigniano and Florence.

We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend both the villa and the Chianti region. We hope to return soon!
