Welcome to our Blog about our new life here in at “Tre Cancelle”

We have been living in Italy for more than 4 years now.  The place we chose to call our new home is the small town of ITRI – a sweet little town nestling in the foothills of the Aurunci Mountains, in SOUTH LAZIO. 

 We came to this area on holiday several years ago and we loved it so much that we decided to sell up, and move out here “lock, stock and barrell”, and we have no regrets.

This region of  SOUTH LAZIO  is so rich in natural beauty, history, culture and is noted for its temperate climate, and rainless summers.  To complement the beautiful mountain scenery there is a spectacular coastline, with numerous golden sandy beaches, rocky coves, hidden caves and sheltered harbours.

Louise’s maternal grandparents originated from the beautiful mountain community of ATINA,

in Frosinone, not far from here.

Well, we hope you will enjoy following our progress ………………… 

Ciao for now !!!

Louise and Paul
