During January and February we were delighted to have Emma and Aneurin once again to stay here at Tre Cancelle.
3 year old Aneurin really seems to love it here in Italy, he is very active boy and is keen to being outside. Often he will say “I need to run!!!” And indeed he does. !!! Fortunately here there is so much space for him to run around and let off steam. Here he is at the top of our hill.

Another local view.
Aneurin amongst the olive trees.
He can get somewhat muddy however especially when playing in puddles !!!
Aneurin has no fear of the horses and enjoys taking them carrot treats. Pictured here are Pino and Vinci.
Our friend Florisa gave Emma an Italian cookery lesson – she prepared Poached Artichokes, Involtini di Tacchino, and a Ham and Potato Frittata.
From Florisa’s house you can see in the distance the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Cività perched high on Monte Fusco. The Madonna della Cività is the patron of Itri.
As it was such a clear sunny day, we drove up into the mountains to show Emma the Sanctuary and it’s magnificent panoramic views.
A view looking down on the Valle d’Itri – you can just see the Gaeta penisula in the background.
