A warm welcome

Sunshine, delicious warm sunshine today and with the grass cut on the lawns at Bellaugello Gay Country House I was in time to ready the Giardino Suite for a couple of friends who telephoned this morning and are travelling through Umbria on their way to Siena which is not that far away and asked if they could call in and stay the night with us.

A warm spring welcome!  The Giardino Suite at Bellaugello Gay Country House, Umbria, Italy #Bellaugello

Although we are not yet quite open, that delight is for the 2nd April in time for Easter it is a good excuse to air a suite and have it checked out before the season.

I so love the Giardino Suite, it is our duplex, the upper level shown in the photographs is dreamily romantic, a four poster bed from a palace in Sicily, and huge views south over the Chiascio valley towards Assisi.  Stairs lead down to the dining kitchen which I have furnished in a retro style, matching the light fittings and paintings I brought from Scotland, and of course the retro bathroom,The Bathroom of the Giardino Suite at Bellaugello Gay Gueat House in Umbria, Italy

both of which lead onto the private terrace, space for a large dining table, a couple of sun loungers and an outdoor shower….
