Time for cheery facts: Here at Bellaugello Gay Country House all is good.
We are getting ready for the new season and will open for the 2015 season on Wednesday 1st. April.
Why not come and join us for Easter? There are still some vacancies in our luxury suites.
The weekend starts on 3rd. April with the ancient and deeply mystical “Processione del Cristo Morto” which takes place at sundown in the medieval city of Gubbio, our local town. We have our favourite restaurant booked and will once again be there to witness this very special evening, as dignitaries and townsfolk process and chant throughout the centro storico. Saturday is a day for exploring, the exhibition of Dinosaurs and the Gola del Bottaccione one of the few places in Europe where you can actually see the evidence of the meteorite that wiped out the dinosaurs, If contemporary art is your pleasure then the unmissable exhibition of photographs by Steve McCurry runs until late April in Gubbio. Return to Bellaugello Gay Country House and sweat a while in our sauna, before enjoying a dinner served around our family table. Sunday and we are out for lunch in the valley. Once again we will be rolling eggs and joining in the festivities, it has become a tradition here. The quiet country lanes round Bellaugello give perfect possibilities for lazy walks and with the knowledge of returning to a blazing fire and afternoon tea at Bellaugello, your day or relax is almost complete.
The primroses are in flower under the fig tree, we have been busy with our maintenance programme, kilos of orange marmalade are now bottled, the sauna is now looking resplendent with its new coats of wood preservative, the vegetable garden has been dug over, a few more days for the soil to dry out and we will be planting potatoes and beans, I am nearly done restyling one of the suites, and I have a great team of guys joining me for the season, all the vacancies are filled (more about the team in a future post) and my two big pieces of news are imminent, one happening later today the other shortly….. So much to do so little time to do it all!
