While staying at Villore that summer, Sally and I wondered for the first time aloud whether it was possible to have our own little piece of the wild Crete Senesi, our favorite part of Tuscany. On a whim, Sally asked Villore groundskeeper, Momo Brubeck (the first American to live full-time in the area), whether he knew of a any fixer-uppers that might fit our unrealistically tiny budget. This is Momo.This is what he showed us.
And this was Sally's response: "Nah."
