Tre Cancelle Farmhouse


About Us

We are an English Couple who now live in Bella Italia and we have been here for several years now.  We had  visited the area of South Lazio several times on holiday, and we liked it so much we decided to escape the “rat race”, sell up lock stock and barrel in the UK, and completely change our life-style. The place we chose to live is Itri, a sweet little town nestling in the foothills of the Aurunci Mountains, an ancient staging post along the Roman “Via Appia“.

Our home  is a restored farmhouse or “casale“ on the outskirts of this historic township and is set amidst the greenery of our own olive groves in a quiet little backwater with mountain and countryside views, and even a glimpse of the sea.   

We are indeed exceptionally fortunate to live here.

Here’s our Avanti Sempre Avanti Blog about Making A New Life in Italy.

The property that we purchased in 2005 hadn't been lived in for over 10 years, and even then it had not been a true family home.  The facilities were very basic and left much to be desired, lacking in creature comforts, as it had been only been used as a place to camp at busy times of the farming year, particularly during the olive harvest.

The building itself seemed to be structurally sound, however was in need of a great deal of work and renovation.  The property had no connection to a water supply, except for a rainwater cistern, and no electricity or gas.

The house came with a sizeable semi-abandoned olive grove, into which we dreamed of breathing new life.
