About Kristina Dockray
I started letting this property over a decade ago on behalf of my mother, although we stopped for the last few years due to personal circumstances. My brother and I inherited the house recently and have carried out some major works, including adding a new staircase, downstairs toilet, an en suite bathroom to one of the bedrooms and a stunning new kitchen.
Kristina Dockray purchased this House in 1957
Why Kristina Dockray chose Piglio
My grandfather bought this house in 1957. Though Swedish, he worked most of his life for the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation in Rome. He, my grandmother and mother played golf regularly at the Fiuggi Golf Club, hence the choice of location for his weekend house. It is a beautiful and unspoilt area, with relatively few foreign tourists, yet it is easy to get to Rome and centrally placed to visit many interesting places.
What makes this House unique
If you want to chat to real, local Italians, the neighbours/managers - Ivana and Luigi - are always keen to get to know our guests. But they will also leave you alone, if that's what you prefer. If you want to get to know them, just invite them round for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine or beer!
