How strange the weather can be, one moment hot hot sunshine and the next magical mist.  Here at Bellaugello Gay Country House we live in the most breath-takingly beautiful of valleys.  We look south commanding a huge view over the river Chiascio which meanders its way lazily towards the confluence with the river Tiber. Our […]

Clearing through photos this morning at Bellaugello Gay Country House I came across this set which brought back memories of just how the house was and all the effort we put into restoring it to make what you see today. The south elevation of Bellaugello 2009 – 2015 enjoy!

Autumn has arrived here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, in Umbria. The leaves are turning to golds, reds and ambers, and the air has that magical slightly misty quality only found in the fall.

As we prepare for the upcoming season at Bellaugello Gay Guest House we are confronted by snow and sunshine simultaneously.  It is a glorious day, the sun is hot, the wind bitter, and both make life just a little bit more fun.

The day is cold and crisp, and until Jenny started […]

After a huge amount of wind last night, a storm that came straight up the valley and blew for hours on end today is a chilly but clear day in Umbria.  The sun is warm but the outside temperature still cool.  Here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House we are working hard on the alterations, it […]

Flurries of snow meant that work stopped early today. I have very mixed emotions as having spent the past week emptying the dining room at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, putting the ornaments and furniture into storage, we this morning started work on constructing a new bathroom and modifying the kitchen space. It seems so strange […]

For what is probably my last post of 2012 a few photos to let you share the views at Bellaugello Gay Guest House which is bathed in glorious sunshine at the end of December 2012 It really is a fabulous place to be!  Happy New Year to ALL, hope to see you here in 2013

So being in front […]
