Casa di Nonnas
Casa Di Nonnas is owned by our patron Maurizio Mori and maintained by key members of the Mori family. Having lived in Sheffield for over 40 years, where Maurizio, Marco and Michela’s father; Moreno Mori (a restaurateur for more than 17 years), raised the family and taught them from the traditions and thinking of both English and Italian cultures. Both ways of life were ingrained upon the siblings at an early age. Maurizio explains that his mother, Leda Mori actively encouraged the family to embrace the cultural diversity of both nationalities. And so, with the family growing up around great Italian cooking and restaurants in and around England (and more specifically the South Yorkshire region), it’s no surprise that Maurizio followed in his father’s footsteps, seeking college education in both the UK (Sheffield) and Italy (Montecatini), to hone his culinary skills. Maurizio worked across Europe for 7 years in Switzerland / France / Austria and Italy (Montecatini)
As well as the Mori family pulling together, Maurizio employs a team of local people to look after the property. Whether it’s our cleaner Damina ensuring that the accommodation is kept spick and span, Giovanni tending to the gardens or Luigi keeping the pool clean for you, you can be sure that the Casa is kept looking welcoming and homely at all times. On top of this, throughout the year our Property Manager; Marilena works at the Casa in the capacity of a Greeter. She will meets with all guests and provide throughout the property. Marilena will also explain to guests about the area and suggested places to go around the area.
The main villa’s luxuriously appointed accommodation sleeps six. This includes two double bedrooms (one with a four-poster bed) and a twin bedroom. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a fully appointed en-suite WC. There is also a separate main bathroom for guests to share. Within the property, there is a large kitchen, utility room and a spacious lounge. The Cherry Tree barn sleeps two/four and has a well-fitted kitchenette, lounge, double bedroom with four-poster bed, en-suite bathroom/shower, lounge with comfortable pull-out double sofa bed Both buildings have cable television, DVD and stereo system and have fully-equipped kitchens featuring SMEG cooker, fridge, dishwasher and a full range of cooking utensils, crockery etc.
Outside the villa, the garden and surrounding terraces extend down through olive and fruit trees to a pair of stepped-down infinity pools which give stunning views over the wooded valley and hilltop villages beyond. And, this being Italy, you’ll find the Casa offers plenty of options when it comes to eating, outdoors or in – whether it’s breakfast on the terrace, lunch by the pool, a barbecue beneath the stars or a candlelit dinner – the perfect backdrop for any meal.
