About us


Casa Tuscany was founded in 2002 and for twenty years has taken pride in matching beautiful Italian properties to our clients’ needs.

We specialise in property in Tuscany and Umbria as well as other parts of Italy and aim to bring you the best and widest possible selection of properties on the market.

Relationships are key, and all our agents in Italy are qualified, fully licensed, experienced and trusted.

We are proud to have helped so many clients of many different nationalities and budgets, from world-famous celebrities and international businesses, to those who wish to relocate or who are looking for a pied-a-terre, retirement home or rental investment, to find their dream home in such a beautiful part of the world.

One of the most important words in our vocabulary is ‘no’. Saying no to properties which don’t meet the standards we are looking for, or offer good value.

Over the years we have learnt how to source the best properties, how not to waste anyone’s time, who (and who not) to work with, and a wealth of knowledge about the best locations to buy in, obtaining permissions, building, restoring, problem solving, buying at auction, renting for profit, decorating, the best people for the job when you’re renovating, renting, or managing your property, and most of all how to just get things sorted so you can ENJOY your property.

We have featured in the Financial Times, Daily Mail, Italy Magazine, Italia magazine, Sunday Business Post (Ireland), Living for Retirement magazine, Manchester Evening News, to name but a few, written articles for ‘Italy’ magazine and featured in television programmes ‘A Place in the Sun’, ‘Grand Designs’, ‘Fantasy Homes by the Sea’, ‘Escape to the Continent’ ‘I Want that House’, ‘House Hunters in the Sun’ among others.

If you dream of owning your own place in Italy, we can help you fulfil that dream, guiding you expertly through every stage. Please see our constantly updated selection of properties for sale on the website and request further information on any that interest you, or email us about you and what you are looking for and where, and we’ll make some recommendations.

Should you have any questions about the buying process, please initially see our FAQ which should answer many of your questions.

Subscribing to our newsletter will inform you once a month of all new properties for sale and if you want to hear about them more regularly, please follow us on instagram or facebook for daily updates.

Our Info and Services section has lots of information about many aspects of Italian property purchase.


Casa Tuscany was founded by Karen Roos in 2002. Her life-long love of Italy started when she spent many happy holidays there as a child, staying often with Italian family friends, enjoying the sun, food, friendship, language and lifestyle. Her love of the country and its language led her to study Italian and Business (and French, but that’s a bit rusty now…) at university, then subsequently to buy, restore and develop properties in Italy. She set up Casa Tuscany with the aim of helping others fulfil the same dream, and it has grown steadily over the years.
