I am an English widow who has lived and worked in Italy 40 years. I live just outside Florence in a 14th century tower with lots of stairs and a magnificent view of the city.
I worked as a resident buyer with my husband for many years. It was very hard work but interesting and put you in contact with all sorts of people many of whom became lifelong friends. My American husband died 2 years, and I would like to spend more time travelling
instead of passing the summer at the beach. I love music, theatre, old Italian films and picnics in the country. I have five step-grandchildren in the New York area, and three great nieces in Scotland and I love them all to bits.
My late husband visited Camogli in the late 1960's and fell in love with this unique place.
It is completely unspoiled - walking down the narrow streets with the painted houses you feel as if you are in the 15th century. Genoa has an international airport and there is is a frequent
train service from Camogli to other town along the coast
Relaxing on the balcony at 7.00 pm with a glass of prosecco, taking a dip in the pool in the early morning, walking to Camogli after dinner to listen to music at the port or meet friends for a drink, taking a boat trip to swim at San Fruttuoso, a cove in the mountain of Portofino, eating pasta and pesto at one of the typical restaurants - going to Portofino and seeing the mega yachts moored and wondering who they belong to. Walking on the mountain of Portofino with its unparalled sea views and the smell of pine trees.
