Default Re: New studio

Since our arrival in Italy many things have been accomplished to make retirement here a wonderful adventure. I now have bank accounts, a social security card, and a permit to take residence. None of these would have happened without my persistent wife. The house we rented has been a problem since we moved in to it. The old man who yells at all hours day or night is below us and during our time here we have found out that he has twice tried to burn the place down, that there is a family feud over the property. His son, our landlord hates him and wishes him dead. The police have been here several times and the old man has been carried off in an ambulance twice in the middle of the night. He is a resilient old bugger as the next day he returns to his home underneath us .Franca my determined blessing has been looking at other homes to rent practically every day since we moved in. As time went by and the situation here grew worse I pushed her to find a place where we could settle, drop anchor and enjoy living in peace. Her search has paid off in a small town named Santo Stephano Di Magra .We will be moving once more in January into a villa and paying less rent than we do here. To say that I am pleased is an understatement; here are photos of new home, studio, and garden and there is even a small room in the attic where a guest could spend a night or two.
