For 10 years, we have owned our dream house by the sea. We live on the Italian Riviera in a small beach town named Alassio. It’s smack in the middle of the most northern coastline about an hour west of Genova. For years we have enjoyed the sun and the sandy beach (very unusual in Italy), and the Riviera lifestyle. It’s a heavenly place filled with family fun, great shopping, and a terrific array of great bars to enjoy aperitivo and wonderful and varied restaurants. It’s a place where families gather, and young people party in the clubs. Beach clubs line the seaside, and people just are generally in the vacation state of mind. I love it.
Recently, I decided that I would arrange styling workshops here. My first one was this month. Read about it here. With this in mind, my husband and I decided that we needed a house with a garden. Although we love our chic flat with a sea view, it’s time to make the move and buy a house. Once we have a house, we can conduct workshops, cooking courses, creative retreats, and of course spend more time here in our adopted country. We have put our flat on the market with a twinge of nostalgia because it’s been so amazing here.
But life is an adventure, and if you know me, I am always up for the challenge.
Check out or flat here, and email me if you have any questions about it here in our little piece of heaven. It’s my fantasy that an American, someone I know would buy our flat. That way we would keep it in the family, and they would have an instant introduction to the Italian lifestyle. What do you say? Are you up for the challenge?
