I have been living in italy since 2002, when I moved from North Wales. I could never have imagined I would make such a move, but when life took a sad turn I turned it into a happy one!

I have fallen in love with this beautiful country and especially its climate! I first lived in Bellagio on Lake Como and my first home, Casa Bellagina, is now a 'home from home' holiday rental.

I moved to Casa Fagiolina in the Sabina area near Rome in 2010. I love the fact that I am immersed in tranquil countryside yet a short and inexpensive train ride transports me to the wonders and culture of Rome. It really is the best of both worlds.

I work in tourism and am lucky enough to travel all over Italy. Having seen many places I feel truely privileged to have lived in two such beautiful locations - the Sabina and Lake Como. I am happy to share my wide knowledge to help you plan your trip to Italy. I am able to give you plentiful, practical and personalised information. Each apartment also has a great selection of guide books, pamphlets, maps and walking information.

I love the fact that I now have my own olive trees in the garden and pick my own olives in November- with a little help from friends. There is nothing to beat the satisfaction of bringing your own oil back from the oil mill and making that first tasty bruschetta!

I am still exploring locally and discovering new walks and places to visit. I never tire of the views. There is something to enjoy in each place at any time of year. I hope to welcome you to one of my holiday homes soon and will happily answer any questions you may have!
