POST ON YOUR DREAMBOARD
Buy, renovate and have your home featured in design magazines worldwide. I recently contacted Studio Gum about a Sicilian renovation (that I’ve had on the backburner) after seeing one of their properties featured in a mag. Sure, some time, patience, creativity, and connections (oh, and euros) are needed. But if others can do it, why not you? I always share what I find on the real estate front, and would like to do a tour in the future where we look at properties. Want in? Send us email with “more” and we’ll send you the deets.
Macellaio in Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre. Kelly and Kiiri from our team (maybe you’ve met them via email) LOVE this place because they specialize in steak and red meat, while every other place in town revolves around seafood. The last time I was training new guides we gathered at the tables with maps and notes in hand.
Loraine, the owner, told me to tell you to order the steak tartare served with chef’s marinated zucchini and carrots, the tomahawk feletto, tagliata, or the butcher’s burger. And of course, their pasta is a huge hit. I’ll take one of each, per favore.
WHAT WE’RE LOVING RIGHT NOW
Ok, you know that place I just shared with you under “dreamboard”? You can rent it. Here’s the listing in Sicily. Send me wine, plz.
WISH WE WERE HERE
Sardinia. It’s beyond beyond great. (I traveled with my friend, Tim, and in her post she shares about our Sardinian adventures.)
