Newsletter october 2020
Hello folks and sorry for the delay in sending out this newsletter. It has been an unusual year for everyone and also for me. It has been a very productive time full of activity. You will see many improvements to the house(s) and gardens and also the options for the art holidays.
Yes, I must mention it....Up here in the mountains of Italy we have adapted well and the h ouse is well organised for hygien, social distancing and the provision of masks, gels etc. it all works easily and effectively.
I haven't been able to offer art holidays at all this year and all bookings for 2020 have been transferred to 2021 It has been strange not to have the usual sounds of chattering, laughing and the sound of aristic production and I look forward to having many guests next year.
I have been kept busy teaching English to local people and having Italian B&B guests who have come up to the mountains for a holiday.

The spiral staircase with a (donated) tree trunk in the centre, and handles of river washed wood, leads up to the first floor. There is a large bedroom with beautiful arched windows, one of which leads to a small balcony. The bed and door are made of old bedheads.
The bathroom is mosaiced using 'found' mosiacs, a recycled door with a dragon in coloured glass (my winter project of 2020) and a variety of lighting effects from the various coloured windows.
Then, the stairs continue up to a ballcony area where there is another little bedroom.
In the garden you will find other pieces of coloured glasswork. I told you it became an addiction!

He can also take you on beautiful walks in the area, talking about the culture and traditions of the landscape. You can decide with him how long the walk should be and at what level.
