What’s been happening here at the Kottage?
I am traveling in Italy and it has been wonderful. We are here with some people who are interested in our Palazzo Ricci, who have become our new friends. Stefano, another friend of ours, owns Abruzzo Gourmet restaurant. Stefano always has the best non alcoholic drinks for us.
Lanciano was a buzz of excitement last night! The festival of St. Anthony was going on. Music in the streets, and lots of porchetta! This man is the quintessential Italian butcher don’t you think?
This medieval castle is called Roccascalegna and is very near to our Palazzo. It is stunning sitting on the edge of this rock. Inside there is a small museum showing some of the torture devices that were used.
It is horrific what they used to do!
Pizza is a must when in Italy! We had this delicious pizza at Abruzzo Gourmet. I love fresh ingredients on pizza!
Palazzo Ricci Update
The cottage section of Palazzo Ricci is really coming along! The ceilings are completely renovated, the exterior walls are finished and beautiful. The interior walls of the cottage are nearly completed. If you are new here you can read about how we ended up buying a 250 yr. old Palace in Italy here!
This cottage residence (one of 14) will be 2,000 sq. feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, full gourmet kitchen, living room and a den. There is a small office area and a private garden. You can see the renderings of what it will look like here on our website Palazzoricci.com.
This particular room will be in the penthouse! It will be the gourmet kitchen. Oh my gosh! I can’t believe how much light is in this kitchen. it is going to be stunning!
From the kitchen you will be able to look out over the living room through the retractable glass wall onto the terrace and out to the Majella mountains.
This is the rendering view from the kitchen looking out over the the living room.
I seriously cannot wait!!
