This morning the house was completely shrouded in mist.  It is typical of autumn days here in Umbria that early in the mornings, light mist lingers in the valley and magically breaks free floating upward and dissipating, inevitably by eleven o’clock in the morning the blue sky is revealed in all its warmth and glory.

The current baltic weather here in Umbria, and covering of snow put us here at Bellaugello Gay b&b in mind of taking a sauna. Last year we created a panoramic deck and imported direct (well actually via France ‘cos they do not sell them here in Italy) from Finland a wooden building in which there […]

Today at Bellaugello Gay Guest House it was yet another glorious day.  An overnight frost soon lifted and the sun has shone brightly all day. After a couple of days at the computer I took the opportunity to work outdoors and, although wrapped up warmly, felt the restorative heat of the sun.  Later this afternoon […]

A couple of guys from Germany driving here to Bellaugello Gay Guest House told me on arrival that they had come through snow! I really did not believe them, I know it has been turning cooler here in Umbria, however snow was the last thing on my mind.  Well it seems they were referring to […]

Yesterday was another glorious day here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House near Gubbio in Umbria, Italy, a day for lying by the pool and working on an all-over tan. The sun shone in a blue sky studded with fluffy cumulus clouds which scurried on the gentle breeze. What surprised me was that the newly installed […]

It has been a very busy weekend here at Bellaugello gay and hetero friendly guest house, and work continues a pace today. Whilst the guys are busy working on the sauna foundations I have been researching the Yurts.  I think I now have found a reliable Yurt builder, and am just waiting quotation and to […]
