Sarah and Bob, glad you stayed in our countryside apartment, Casa Nuova, taking home to Seattle “unforgettable memories” as you wrote to us:

So many unforgettable memories to treasure: the bounty of the garden, tomatoes, grapes, figs – wonderful people and food and the serenade of the donkeys to name only a few.
Thank you so much!”

Enjoy a few photos of our time together and your encounters with our rural friends:
