Italy! in the beautiful hills of Oltrepo Pavese , just south of Milan! Oltrepo Pavese is a relatively tourist free area, I call it real Italy , my husband and I have a old 150 year old Casina, means old farmhouse , we share our home with 2 dogs, 5 cats , and of course local wildlife, deer, rabbits, sometimes we also see wild boar. . Please Note ;- WE ARE NOT A WORKING FARM NOW.
I am English, my husband is Italian. Our three children are not so much children anymore !
Oltrepo Pavese is the largest wine area in Italy , and, second globally to California, if you dont like wine then suggest you dont come and visit us.
The vineyards and hills are south facing , many refer to this area as the jewel of the crown, in some ways similar to Tuscany , however without the tourists. That is what we love !
Our life is our home, our family, wine cellar, food and local culture play a large part of our daily life, we eat most evening under our Casina al fresco Vita bella .
Nearby we have everything from the border of Liguria with the coastal regions of the famous 5 cities , nearby , Genova, Milan, Tornio, and many beautiful unknown local villages ready to explore .
Our home is large, always plenty to do , we have a swimming pool used in the summer months , bikes, and a very outdoor life in the summer .
Weekends usually are spent off in the hills , with a bottle of wine , bread, cheese , exploring local vineyards new wines waiting to be tasted or off to the sea side or just relaxing in the garden and pool .
Its important that you have experience with dogs and cats and enjoy experiencing different cultures .
