Sitting at my kitchen window watching the light rain fall to the Chiascio valley below, the surrounding hills lightly covered in mist, a quiet, still and somewhat magical day here in Umbria I have a great announcement to make;

After several months of work all is almost ready and the New Bellaugello Gay Country House website is about to be launched.

I have put a great deal of time and thought into the new website which will launch in the next few days, in three languages, English, Italian and Dutch.  We are going through the final checks and controls, doing last minute fine tuning ready to go live.

In the new site you will find greater descriptions, large format photographs and a completely new feel, giving a greater insight to Bellaugello.  The website is also responsive to both tablet and mobile, yes, we have finally caught up with technology.   The designers and I chose new colours and a new logo which feature elements intrinsic to Bellaugello,  they have stayed here so know what Bellaugello is all about.

This is one of my last posts on the current ‘old look’ blog, for my jottings are also being transferred to the new style.  Don’t worry the blog archive will still be available to view, I cannot loose almost six years and over one thousand posts of my blogging but like the website the new blog will be easier on the eye.

Keep checking back and please do let me know what you think to the new website and blog.


Desolé has been my word of the past ten days or so.  I have had the utter pleasure of having a couple of guys from Paris staying here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, nicer guys one could not hope to meet.

Yesterday evening we had another of our great barbecues, this time Alessandro cooking outdoors and  because of the huge grey clouds hovering nearby we set the table in the dining room it was kind of surreal serving and eating a bbq indoors.  Anyway afterwards these delightful courteous guests informed me that they had early flight departure time from Rome and they were planning to leave at six o’clock this morning.  Obviously I offered coffee and croissants before they left.  I set the table in the dining room, ready with the cups and saucers, readied the kitchen, and even better looked out a pair of jogging pants and sweatshirt, which I left on the chair in my bedroom ready to put on and dash downstairs to give the guys breakfast before they headed off.

Well the best laid plans of mice and man can often go asunder, and asunder they did.  Late to bed, set the alarm, 05:33, woke at 04:30 went back to sleep and then slept through my alarm.  It was only when Bobby woke me at 06:34 that I sprang out of bed – he must have heard the car leaving, for me to realise I was too late , I had overslept and the guys had left with either coffee or croissant:(
