A delightful read
My dear friend Etain has just published the latest volume of her stories of Valdichiascio, "the life of the white horse" a part of her diary kept at her home, the idyllic organic farm of Pratale here in the valley.  Some of my guests have been fortunate enough to meet this wonderful person, and some […]
Perugia Airport NEW Flights!
From Lufthansa great news! Starting 10th.

I’m in love…
Today is grey, damp, miserable and I am feeling hellish.  I was away for a few days, up in the Dolomites in the sun, invited to join two guests from Bellaugello Gay Guest House for a couple of days of hiking.  I drove and stopped the night at Trento, that elegant city nestling in the […]
