This is a love story of a Dutch immigrant woman married to an American man of Italian descent and how they followed their unimaginable dream of buying a vacation home in Italy.
With my husband’s Italian heritage, the “old country” was a natural place for us to buy a second home. In our quest to follow our dream to homeownership in Italy, we learned a lot about our love and each other. Although many books have been written about acquiring property in Italy, most are about buying a restoration project.
This uniquely different story explicates the heartwarming tale of the perils and experiences Vince and I encountered along the way and, since Italy if full of those warm and engaging Italians, it is also the story of the wonderful people we met during our search to find the perfect vacation apartment in Morcella; a meticulously well maintained medieval Borgo built in 975AD, in the middle of the country; Italy’s beautiful green belt region of Umbria.
