Property features

Who we are

  1. We are very happily married British couple who made a decision to buy our future home in a very beautiful location in Tuscany. Those of you that will stay will know immediately why we chose Casa Duetto. It has views all around the house and up to a gorgeous hamlet over looking a famed Spa resort 'Bagni di Lucca'.

    We live in Hong Kong and will not consider swap for destinations in Europe or North America at this point in time, sorry...

    We are looking for opportunities to explore Asia-Pacific region through Holiday Homes Exchange during 2012 and 2013.

    We have already scheduled an exchange in Australia late 2011 and will not be arranging an exchange in Australia until we completed this as we normally do not go to the same place twice with so many beautiful places to see in the world,
