Managing Director

Hello, this is me Elisa. Born in Lucca where I have grown up and where I still live. I am graduated in Lucca. During the studies I have done many jobs all characterized by working in team and to the customer care. My personal and professional experiences make me have a very good relation with my colleagues and collaborators and reach the goals.

I started to develop a deep interest for the tourism sector since I was little, in 1995, when I tried to help my mother in searching for prestigious houses for a great Tour Operator, specialized in summer vacation rentals.I have grown up with the properties' interest and that’s why in 2012 I have started my own business and own my real estate company which I still manage Della Santa Villas. I have travelled a lot all over Europe and abroad Europe and that’s why I have a very good knowledge of the English language and a good level of French.

I love my town Lucca, which I think it is one of the most beautiful town of the world and I also love my region Tuscany with all its flavors and taste, the nature which goes from the mountain through the sea…I am a wife and mother of two children, one girl and one boy.
