So good

This past week Bellaugello Gay Country House has been graced with the presence of Theodore who has been busy helping out whilst soaking up the hot Umbrian sunshine.

Out and about - Things to do

Men in tights

If you are a guy who likes men in tights then you need to get your ticket booked to Umbria to be here for Saturday 25th. April.   Fly into our local airport of Perugia S Francesco di Assisi, we now have regular flights from Rome, Munich, Barcelona and London, book into Bellaugello Gay Country House where you will find luxurious suites, a huge garden and perfect peace in a beautiful setting and on the Saturday morning head to our local medieval town of Gubbio where in the spectacular setting of the elevated Piazza Grande there will be an exhibition of flag throwing as the huge bell in the campanile of the Palazzo dei Consoli is tolled by hand, or rather foot by a team the only membership being passed from father to son.

Beginning to get it all back

Wow! technological problems have abounded.  I am SO tired of technological problems, I know that my emails are not getting through or being received, and for this I apologise, it is not as if I do not want to reply, I am simply not able to. Luckily I have great people with infinite expertise and patience helping me, some in Spain and one right here, and it seems that we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Anyway onto nice things, and that is Bellaugello Gay Country House which is looking absolutely splendid as a wee tour round the garden with my camera this morning shows:

A glorious day here at Bellaugello Gay Country House, the sun shone brightly and temperatures reached 23˚c  the infinity swimming pool is glistening and beginning to heat up.  As I finished work we noticed Bobby casting a measured eye over the gardens and a photo was swiftly taken…

Oh what a beautiful morning!

I am feeling guilty.  Not only do I live here at Bellaugello Gay Country House in one of the most beautiful corners of Europe, but also I have been a poor blogger of late.  So to make up for that I post a few photographs of what you are all missing this morning…

Yes, I’m still here, but IT isn’t

Not a happy guy at all.  Last festive season I wrote to all my guests that they could expect a huge bit of news from Bellaugello in January, the original agreed date for the news was the end of December but already by the festive season it was obvious that the deadline was not going to be made.  So first January then February and then March went by and now April is racing on without my being able to make the announcement as promised, I feel so bad!

So I will make it anyway:  Bellaugello has a new website, or rather should by now have a new website.  The original delivery date envisaged was end December 2014, and through a stream of delays some of which I must admit are also down to me, and as a result the new website is hideously delayed.

I have seen the new website, the designers have done a fabulous job, it looks awesome, but that is probably not what you want to hear, you want to SEE it and I too want it to go live!

The new website as well as fabulous pictures and new descriptions has a super booking online facility, so making your reservation and holiday at Bellaugello Gay Country House will be simplicity itself

I am real sorry for this guys, not only must you who still remember be thinking that my christmas message was insane, and of course those of you who have long forgotten the possibility of a huge piece of news I feel real stupid.  Add to that getting to four months delay, over my most crucial booking period and you can see that I am definitely not a happy boy.

At home, Development progress

No April fool

Busy preparing for Easter, but just time to post pictures of the new look living room of our Specchio Suite here at Bellaugello Gay Country House.

Wow! what a scorcher

Hot, hot sun today and I find myself busy cleaning :-(

Slight wispy clouds dot the azure sky, a light breeze, hot hot sun, and all around colour, spring bulbs and fruit trees in flower, the rosemary bushes at Bellaugello Gay Country House are buzzing with bees, honey bees too, obviously out on their first sunshine adventure.

My owl is back, once again nesting in the niche in the house by my sitting room window, I am careful not to disturb her, and the blue tits are again nesting in the cherry tree, somewhat surprising considering that we cut a huge section off the top only a few days ago.

News on the new website?  Well, it should have gone live, but there are some new technical problems still to resolve and so a slight delay.  Sorry chaps, I too find this most irritating, but alas, it cannot be helped.  Keep checking back, we hope to be online soon.

In the meantime I am back to the cleaning getting ready for Easter…  Have a great evening!
