Already guys are enquiring for information about our New Year’s Eve Houseparty at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, so I thought it about time to finalise the details and let all of you know that we are open over the new year and once again planning a leisurely weekend of celebrations to the high standards of hospitality and welcome that you have experienced in your summer holidays here.
As ever we open our doors on Friday 29th December the fireplace in the dining room will be lit, a welcoming tea awaits before settling into your suite where you will discover a bottle of chilled prosecco with our compliments. Unpack, unwind, maybe head down to the Sauna and sweat away those cares and Christmas excesses, maybe just rejoice in the luxury of your suite. Later on join us for an aperitivo and buffet supper of local Umbrian specialities, a chance to meet your fellow houseparty guests.
Saturday 30th December
Following a breakfast served around our antique family table the day is your to do with as you please. Be as active or lazy as you wish. Maybe a walk on one of the many trails in the valley, a sweat in the sauna, or just cozying up in front of the fire with a good book. Our suites have underfloor heating, making them toasty warm and delightful to walk around barefoot. Late afternoon the taxis arrive to take us into our local town of Gubbio. We have time to discover this beautiful medieval town, the narrow lanes of S Martino with their medieval street scenes, and cantinas in ancient stone town houses filled with Christmas scenes, bars and shops, all lit by the “World’s Largest Christmas Tree” which towers from the hillside above the town. We head to our favourite bar, MartinTempo for an aperitivo before dinner with wines in a local restaurant. After dinner the taxis return to bring us back to Bellaugello Gay Guest House.
Sunday 31st December
Join your fellow guests for breakfast, and then time to relax. Maybe you wish to stay at Bellaugello or maybe head to Perugia or Assisi, the choice is yours. Tea will be waiting your return late afternoon and of course the sauna will be lit. In the evening we commence with cocktails and out traditional Italian Scottish New Year’s Eve Dinner including wine pairings. We ask you to wear black tie, fetish or national costume for the evening, of course I will be wearing my kilt. Shortly before midnight we head out onto the terrace to light our Chinese Wish lanterns and toast the new year with Franciacorta as we watch the fireworks from neighbouring village lighting up the sky.
Monday 1st January 2018
Laze late in bed, each suite has an expresso machine, then come join us for our New Year’s Day Brunch. Many years amazing as it may seem we have served this outside on the terrace. The afternoon and evening we leave free for you to do as you wish.
Tuesday 2nd January
After breakfast in the dining room it’s time to swap addresses and say our goodbyes with the hope that we will meet again at Bellaugello later in 2018.
