There is much history ad beauty to explore in Verzimo:
-our church dates from the 1600s and still has original frescos adornign it's walls
-Renaissance era art dots the area from Sacro Monte to the many small churches throughout the area
-River sporting, skiing in Monte Rosa, medieval stone bridge Ponte de la Gulla (720 AD) and lake D'Orta (with its island of silence San Guilio), are all very close for exploring and have rich histories
Please respect my home and studio as if it were your own. I am happy to share my home and art with you. Please know this is a rustic environment, a throw back to a lifestyle of years past. I do have some creature comforts (running hot water, electricity) but I prefer a simple lifestyle in the woods and my home reflects that. If you are looking for the most modern and up to date facilities, my home is not for you. If you would like a beautiful, homey, comfortable experience in the unique home of an international artist, I look forward to hosting you very soon!

I will interact as much or as little as guests request. I will greet guests when they arrive. You can meet me in the small town square with your car to unload your bags, and then move your car to our small car park. I will give guests a tour of the house and their room and will help advise on using the stove for breakfast.
