I am a General Practitioner in my mid 40s and live in Hertfordshire. I am married and have a teenage daughter. I speak a little Italian and practice when I can - the locals say I am improving...
I have always had a loved Italy and I'm interested in buildings and restoration. We have some Italian friends who have a property near Bolsena and after visiting the area we were struck by how unspoilt it was. Initially we looked at properties near Bolsena but could not find anything with enough seclusion or land. We broadened our search and came across several possibilities, The Yellow House was our favourite. At the time it was a ruin and we spent 2 years restoring it. The project was great fun and we had lots of support from our now property manager.
