Chic designer dining

One of the biggest joys of running a guest house is the great guys I meet from all walks of life and from so many different countries.  There is always the chance to learn of other cultures, attitudes toward gay culture and freedoms or in some case intolerances.  At dinner conversation flows freely, friend are made and contacts kept.

A recent guest at Bellaugello Gay Guest House owns a high end furnishing and accessory store in a major capital city, and it was he that dressed the table on the terrace for one of our dinners.  With the backdrop of the amazing ever-changing Umbrian countryside, warm breeze wafting cooking smells and the scent of lavender heavy with nectar collecting insects

Fruit and flowers from the garden, the dried roses wilted on the plant as we still have no rain, an abundance of small sour plums and sprigs of lavender, real chic, real designer.
