Host ~ L.
I am the owner of Toscana Mia,
a business devoted to passionate living.
My own passion is to work with clients who
want to experience the true Italy by providing them with elegant
Italian villa rentals, Tuscany wedding assistance and sharing
the latest news, advice and tips on the Tuscan lifestyle
I am a native Tuscan now living in the San
Francisco area. Yearly, I teach
people the Tuscan passion-centered way of life by taking them
on transformational experiences in Tuscany. My intimate, hand
crafted Toscana Mia vacations emphasize the "real," less-touristed aspects of this fascinating region
It is not uncommon for clients who come with
me to Tuscany to re-discover their creativity, dreams, and
passions and improve their lives.
My unusual background, which encompasses
a deep and equal understanding of two cultures, provides me
with the distinct advantage of being able to create an authentic
Tuscan experience, with the deluxe amenities and services expected
by sophisticated U.S. travelers
My 30 year career on two continents has spanned
senior positions in the travel industry the corporate world,
and banking and has allowed me to wear many hats. My
clients include Visa International, the University of Pisa,
General Electric, NASA business owners, writers, college professors,
domestic goddesses, teachers, spiritual, artists and authors.
I am a regular contributing writer to the national edition of Examiner.com as the "Tuscany Lifestyle Examiner." I have been featured or quoted in CBSMarketWatch.com,
Chico's clothing catalogues and website, the San Francisco Chronicle, Vive Magazine, Healing Lifestyles
and Spas Magazine, Gentry Magazine, the Kansas City Star, the
Toronto Star, the Vancouver Sun, TangoDiva.com and other publications.
