In 2022,  partly driven by the experience of the Covid lockdown of the previous years, we decided to spend three months living in a remote village in the mountains, home to 10 families and 6 tiny churches. A lot of the former homes were derelict as a result of  decades of migration to the big industrial centres of Milan and Turin. The result is large tracts of mostly mountain areas slowing returning to  nature. We felt very welcome in this small community. The local Mayoress started posting community notices in both Italian and English. Between our pidgin Italian and google translate we managed to communicate with everyone. We rented a beautiful 2 bedroom home in the centre of the village. It featured a fantastic terrace that looked over the most amazing valley. At night, the light pollution was almost non-existent leaving us with a most magnificent view of the Milky Way.

The village was located close to the Italian Rivera, Monaco and Nice with easy access to Venice, Florence and Tuscany. This region is famous for being the home of pesto and the taste and variations of the ingredientsincludefresh ingredients such as Basil, truffles, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese Living in northern Italy offers a unique experience. The region is famous for its picturesque landscapes, rich history, and delicious food and wine. The rolling hills, lush vineyards, and stunning architecture  make for a beautiful backdrop to everyday life. Just as impressive is the beauty and simplicity of every village and small town scattered throughout the pre-alps.
