Buckley Smith and I are joint owners of our house in Italy.
Buckley Smith is a well known marine fantasy and landscape artist (see his art work, carvings murals, etc on (website hidden)). He and I built the house over a period of four years, finished in 2007.
We enjoy having guests in the Hobbit House from mid-April to early June and again in fall from late October through the end of November.
For exercise I run and Buck bicycles. We walk the hills. We garden, prune the olive trees, sickle and mow the lawn. We love to read. And of course Buck is constantly painting a picture, building a piece of furniture, or working on some other project.
Fall is olive harvest. So if you'd like the true and serene experience of helping us pick our olives, we'll send you home with a liter of extra extra virgin olive oil handpicked by you!
We seek and appreciate the joy and beauty life has to offer...and in Italy is is all around us! We look forward to having you share our Italian experience. A Presto! (See you soon!) (website hidden) parle francais assez bien, et italiano un puo
