About Christine Lagna

Four Friends who are in love with Tuscany decided to club together and buy a property and convert it, in traditional Tuscan style, into apartments so that others could enjoy staying in the heart of Tuscany.

Joe is an interior designer and has Italian parents and speaks fluent Italian,

Chris is an architect

Colin is a Project Manager and

Ed is an accountant

so between us we had the skills required, but in reality it was a passion for this part of Italy which inspired us to renovate Le Casine.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Christine Lagna purchased this apartment in 2009
