About Emma Cordingley
I am the booking agent for Casa degli Ulivi, my name is Emma and I live in the Niccone Valley, near Casa degli Ulivi, with my husband, two daughters and our cat and dog. Casa degli Ulivi is owned by lifelong friends of ours and we know it intimately. We run a small rentals agency called Gorgacce Rentals, named after the first house my parents owned here which they bought in the 1980's. In those days before the internet they were very successful at renting their house to holiday-makers and their neighbours asked if they could rent their houses too and from this grew our rentals agency. Seeking a better life Martin and I moved here in 1999 and have taken over most of the running of the rental business although my mum still keeps the accounts! Friends of ours from England who visited us in our early years here, fell in love with the area and bought and restored Casa degli Ulivi, unfortunately due to work and family commitments they are not able to visit as often as they would like but have rented through us successfully for many years. We love being at Casa degli Ulivi, the wonderful views and feeling of space are inspiring and restful.
Emma Cordingley purchased this Villa in 2002
