history of the property

Reconstruction of Villa Martinozza di sotto

The original building dates from around 1860 and was a typical farmhouse (below animals above living)
The property was acquired by the Sterner family in 2003 and completely rebuilt or restored with great attention to detail. The two houses are completely separate.

Interesting facts about dogs


General provisions for entry with dogs

When entering Italy with dogs, the uniformly formulated EU regulations apply:

  • You must have a valid EU pet passport with you.
  • Your dog must be microchipped (or tattooed prior to July 3, 2011 and clearly legible).
  • Your dog must be at least 12 weeks old at the time of the initial rabies vaccination and the vaccination must be administered by an authorized veterinarian. The vaccination is valid until the end of the protection period specified by the manufacturer (usually 1 year). This also applies in the case of repeat vaccinations. A booster vaccination is considered a primary vaccination if it is not given within the validity period. In addition, the dog must already be clearly identified by means of a microchip when it is first vaccinated.
  • In the case of a first vaccination, your entry into Italy may only take place no earlier than 21 days after completion of the vaccination protocol recommended by the manufacturer for the first vaccination.
  • In southern Europe, some diseases are widespread that could be very dangerous for your dog, such as: B. Leishmaniasis. Talk to your veterinarian before you leave to protect your dog accordingly with vaccinations or tick protection.


About me

The Martinozza in Umbria, Italy

a name is Thomas, a native of Germany, near Stuttgart.
With the Villa Martinozza I have fulfilled a lifelong dream.

After my professional activity I will move to Bella Italia together with my dogs.

From 2023 I will live on the property myself and take care of everything. There are still 2 beautiful guest rooms in the house for friends and guests.
Villa Martinozza offers many possibilities and is big enough to rent to guests.

Animal welfare is a big concern for me, I have already contacted animal welfare organizations. There is enough space.

We try to be as self-sufficient as possible, we have our own well, a large solar system is planned and we are planning our own garden with vegetables. 35 olive trees also belong to the property. Last but not least we will have our own chickens for fresh eggs every day. Maybe I've made you a little curious now.

Dear guests, we always try our best for humans and animals to make you feel comfortable.

I would be happy to welcome you at the Martinozza.

Thomas Diopan

On-site support

On-site supervision will be provided by Toni and myself (Thomas).
It can be spoken in 3 languages, Italian, English and German.

Since 15 January 2023, I have been on site myself, together with Toni, who also moved to Martinozza from Germany.

If you want you can enjoy the Italian cuisine to the full.

Talk to us and enjoy an Italian evening with Italian delicacies on the terrace.

Contribution to animal welfare

In our villa we sell various items with our logo and pictures of the villa for a good cause. The special thing about it: 100% of the proceeds go to animal shelters right here on site.

The items can only be purchased on site.

In addition to a financial donation, it is of course also important to get the dogs out of the home yourself, and I am also very active in this area. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me during your next visit.

Our contribution

We will support an Italian animal shelter in the future, now I am on site and have created an overview.
Together with Susanne Kaier (a German vet who works at the veterinary hospital in Arezzo), I looked for and found a shelter nearby.
The shelter is called Canile di Ossaia (Google Maps) and is in Camucia near Cortona.
The director, Stefania, is a very enterprising, hard-working and caring person who goes the extra mile.

We will not be making monetary donations, but will focus on in-kind donations.
For example, food is bought, veterinary bills are paid for or important purchases are paid for directly by us, so that we are quite sure that the money also reaches where it is needed, namely directly with the animals.
Our articles, which are here at Martinozza, can be bought by the guests. 100 % of the proceeds go to the animals at the shelter.

Of course we are happy to accept donations for the shelter if you would like to help, you are also welcome to make a donation and I will then use the donation wisely so that the animals benefit from it.
I will of course always keep you informed about how the donations were used.
