Lidia’s Garden

Cultivate, grow and cook our vegetables: this means living a slower life, but also a better life.
Villa San Simone’s owner is a beautiful middle-aged lady. Her name is Lydia; she has white hair, green eyes and she is a well-known Architect.
Her greatest passions, beyond architecture, are cooking and cultivating vegetables, two things that she considers closely related to each other. In her organic vegetable garden she cultivates vegetables and fruits that she uses for her guests. Her fresh marmelades are famous in the entire city.
Lidia doesn’t considered herself a “chef” and she is not very into sophisticated cooking, although she is able to prepare extraordinary meals based on Venetian and Tuscan receipts.
