Interaction with Guests
On call - english speaking
Bazzano is one of the most sought after places to live, after central Spoleto. A place full of history and gloriously beautiful, made famous by St Francis, for whom it was his stomping ground. And, you can follow in his footsteps, by following one of his many trails, opened to the public, just a few years ago.
A local bus goes between Bazzano and the neighbouring villages to Spoleto and back, 5 times a day but not on Sundays.
About the Host, Norma
I arrived here 30 odd years ago, fell in love with the place, my 1st spiritual home. Couldn't wait to move here permanently. Did so. With 2nd husband. Ist husband declined.
Was persuaded to rent to someone, whose violinist daughter was performing in a Spoleto festival because she couldn't find anywhere to stay.....and, we happened to be holidaying in Sydney. That's how it started. 11 years ago.
We bought more property here.
Our estate agent saw what we were doing. She joined up with us.
The person we bought property from saw what we were doing. He joined up with us.
Suddenly we were in the holiday rental business, for real !
Sydney lost its appeal as we started to introduce potential guests to the beautiful properties that our small partnership group offers, about 50 in all....apartments, villas and pool properties. It is such a joyful experience to be able to offer people the holiday of a lifetime.
Never having been in business before, both of us retired academics, we wished we'd done this all our lives. However, our hard-nosed business friends describe our activity as merely a life-style. "You should charge for this, charge for that, the euros add up", they say. But money is not our goal. Your happiness is.
