14th-Century Farmhouse

Actress Debi Mazar and her husband, Gabriele Corcos, who co-host Cooking Channel's Extra Virgin, spend most of the year in Brooklyn with their daughters, Evelina and Giulia. But for a few weeks every summer, the family escapes to Gabriele's great-grandfather's 14th-century farmhouse in Fiesole, Italy.

Sweeping View

Located about 20 minutes outside of Florence, La Casa Rosa ("the pink house," as they call it) sits on 185 acres of rolling hills dotted with olive, apricot and persimmon trees. Gabriele's extended family still lives on the property, and he loves coming back here to cook for everyone — despite the less-than-modern setup: He relies almost exclusively on the wood-burning stove. Most nights, you'll find him tending to beans or locally made sausage over the fire, or preparing salads with heirloom tomatoes and other vegetables from their garden. If Gabriele has his way, he'll honor his ancestors by turning the farm into a cooking school someday. "I want to recoup the past," he says.

Chickens All Around

The birds, including the handmade rooster behind the ladder, have become a common motif for Debi. "He's named Renato, and he's the house mascot," she says.
