I welcome all guest to the house and after this guests are left in private until the end of their stay.
Reluctantly, because of the high standard and quality of the furnishings found in the house, we are unable to accept young guests under the age of 12.
No pets and no smoking in the house
I first came to Italy 25 years ago; I was fulfilling a life long dream which had been waiting "in the wings" since I was a child.
Life and family kept me in Northern Lands (Norway and Canada) and although I learned to ski and skate I longed to swop pine trees and snow for olives, figs and sun.
Eventually, at the age of 46 I made it! it was love at first sight!!
Four restored houses later and having become fluent in Italian and, not least, Italian building techniques, I am still here and Italian life is in the bones.
I worked as a Teacher and Relationship Therapist and my hobby was architecture, design and restoring houses. Now my two houses here and six acres of land complete woith rose gardens, 150 olive trees and woodland have made my previous hobby a lifelong occupation.
The other loves of my life are my two dogs, Nero, a black standard poodle and Lily, a Golden cocker spaniel. For relaxation we pass our time walking the White roads that meander through the olive groves and chestnut woodlands in this beautiful part of Umbria.
Music is my other love and I can sing all day with no neighbours to be disturbed.
I love looking after my guests and seeing them gradually relax both in the beautiful spaces inside the house and letting the hours slip by lazing by the pool. I know the spell has been cast when they dont want to leave!
I am looking forward to this summer as ill health in the family made me concentrate my efforts elsewhere for two years. I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world and I love seeing things anew through their eyes.
