I have just come into possesion a very old farmhouse, which I am calling Casa Vera, in rememberance of my mother It's situated in the hilly Alte Langhe in North West Italy although I'm living near Genoa on the Ligurian Riviera at the moment. I would like to share my experience with anyone who is interested in Italy, in old houses and family traditions
- Name: Jules
- Location: north west, Italy
I hate aggressiveness, superficiality and ostentatiousness. I prefer to be working rather than sitting around chatting or watching tv. I'm basically a home person and like being with my family and my friends are very important to me too. I also love being alone with time to organize my thoughts, to read a book or listen to music. I also like painting, writing poetry and doing crochet work but certain things are difficult to get your mind to if you know that you are going to be getting a lot of interruptions. I appreciate good taste but also originality. I like colourful ethnic things too and I'm not above being a bit kitchy. I admire intelligent but simple sensitive people without pretensions and love animals (especially horses, dogs cats and birds) and hills, trees and flowers. I like domestic things working at home and on the land doing the basic things one needs to do to live from day to day. To be near the earth, near to nature, living the seasons and getting satisfaction from seeing things get done.
