Casa Debbio and Vergemoli-Video

The astonishing views from Casa Debbio across the valley to Vergemoli in the foreground and Trasilico in the background are always wonderful.  Here is a sample of the view.

Snow at Casa Debbio

Our friend Filippo has sent some photos of Casa Debbio covered with snow…

Why Italy?

I am often asked why we chose to buy a house in Italy. We wanted a base in Europe and for me it had to be Italy…

Casa Debbio in 2018

We had a fun year at Casa Debbio, our gorgeous Tuscan mountain house. We have become gardeners and delight in the garden we have created from scratch. It is wonderful to watch the change of seasons form our mountain perch…

Time to go home

It is time to leave Italy and resume my Brisbane life. I will miss Casa Debbio and our little apartment in Ponte a Serraglio….

A new year begins

2018 is here. It is fun to look back to the previous year to remember what happened. We went to several new places and revisited favourites….

Casa Debbio weather

The rain this spring has been constant. The misty views from Casa Debbio help to distract us from the rain…at least we haven’t had to water the garden much,

Vergemoli and Casa Debbio

I went to Casa Debbio when there was a gap in the rain. Despite the cold winter still being with us, things are happening in the garden. Shoots are beginning to appear on some trees and, most importantly, my peonies are growing…can’t wait.
