Our two children and grandchildren will be visiting us at Casa Le Crete, Ficulle, in October.  As the children are still very young (4, 2 1/2 and 1 1/2) we are interested in finding things that would be of interest to them.  Thought of a farm wher

Thanks for the response.  It seems to be quite a lot of work, but as you say it is nice to have the property occupied - although it would only be for July and August.  It is not so much the tax that puts me off but having to register each guest with the police, etc.  Sounds a bit impractical.

Buon giorno.  I saw your query on the site.  We are a retired couple who owns a home in Ficulle.  Fabro is our "go to" spot.  Looks like you are doing a good job sourcing items for your apartment.  We have also used Maison du Monde.How is your Italian????  Do you have any thoughts/leads on Italian tutors locally (Fabro/Ficulle).  We are always trying to migliorare our Italian but it is slow going.  We are turning mid March and will remain through part of April.  Feel free to get in touch.  Best,  Lisa

Yes, I am simply looking to improve my command of Italian.  I am not looking for a 'degree' or to work in Italy.  So if there is a teacher, casalinga, etc. near Fabro/Ficulle who could assist me in achieving this aim I would be pleased to know.  Grazie per la vostra risposta.

Buona sera Franco.  We have purchased a home in Ficulle so have no plans of moving.  All areas of Italy are of interest to us, but we are very happy and content in Umbria.My best,  Lisa

Grazie Ugo!

Buon giorno Nadia.   Thank you for your response.  I do follow and use online applications to study Italian, but was hoping to connect 'face to face' with an instructor.  I was looking to find someone in the Fabro/Ficulle area.  Grazie for your interest.  Best,  Lisa

I would also love to improve my Italian.  We (my husband and I) own a home in Ficulle just outside of Fabro and would be interested in a group or individual class.  Lascimi sapere.  Lisa

Hi Jane.  This is my email address so that we can chat more informally.  lisadenunzio@icloud.com.  I have previously sent you our website and also have an Instagram which I use to hopefully draw attention to the house and the area.    https://www.instagram.com/casalecrete/   I am not on Facebook so am unable to see your page.Yes, the movers give you a page to fill out. It also needs to be translated into Italian, but in an informal way - not notarized like most forms in Italy.As we have now made this connection and knowing that you own rental property as well, I would like to ask you a few questions.  Our mastery of Italian is improving, but has ways to go......so we are never sure if we are being taken advantage of mostly in reference to caretakers, cleaners, etc.   Can you share with me what you pay for someone to open and close the house when guests arrive?  We are paying 60 euro to open and 60 to close.   We do pay separately for cleaning.Perhaps we can meet in Tavernelle for a coffee or pranzo when we arrive in March.  Look forward to hearing from you.Best,  Lisa - lisadenunzio@icloud.com

Hi Jane.  In actuality, you decide what your goods are worth.  We set the value on the low side so as not to pay more money.  So do you mean you are becoming residents of Italy? We decided against this and just have passport, codice fiscale and A.I.R.E.  Works for us.We live most of the year in Coral Gables, Florida.  We love to spend time in Ficulle, but I am a sucker for my three grandchildren so do not like to be away more than 4 weeks at a clip.   We have lots of fun antiqueing and shopping for vintage finds.  The house is actually two houses that are attached and we only rent the smaller one when we are not there.  In true Italian fashion (confusion), my husband Arturo is shown as owning one home and I am shown on the deed for the other 'for tax purposes'.  Allora.  BTW.  How is your Italian?  Parli???
