Last night I was invited out for dinner. A table was booked at my current favourite restaurant in our local town of Gubbio, the “Officina dei Sapori” and off we set. Being driven for me is a real treat, and going out in the company of two great guys even better. We sat at a delightful corner table, full view of the super shiny new kitchen, and dined off the creative winter menu. The food was awesome, service slick and attentive, and for a Monday the restaurant surprisingly busy.
Returning to Bellaugello Gay Guest House for a nightcap we sat outside on the terrace by candlelight. So still was the night, stars, not a breath of wind, only owl hoots and in the distance the burbling river Chiascio way below in the valley, otherwise utter silence. It is at times like these that I am reminded of just how magical, peaceful and utterly beautiful it is here at Bellaugello, and how fortunate I am to be able to share it with so many great guys from all over the world.
This morning we all woke up to a guest house draped in cloud, silent, intimate and slightly magical. Slowly the cloud lifted, and the magnificence of the view from Bellaugello Gay Guest House is now revealed.
The sun is shining, it is decidedly autumnal, but a beautiful crisp clear day.
