A brand new day…and progress at Casa Debbio

We now have telephone and internet access and the heating is working at Casa Debbio. You can’t see these things, so I will show the the amazing sunrise we were treated to a couple of days ago.















The mist completely enveloped the house for a while before clearing to a beautiful morning. We will be staying at Casa Debbio every day soon and I will get to look at this view all day (apart from when we are working on the garden of course…if the rain stops for more than a day)


  1. Great news Deb! Love, Rose

    • The progress is a bit slow, but we are almost there.

  2. Good news, I am glad to hear. These clouds seem like a sea of clouds… wonderful view and photographs. Thank you dear Debra, have a nice weekend, love, nia

    • The view is amazing…and always different. Soon everything will be green and beautiful.

  3. Congratulations! Glad to hear that everything is finally working.

    • At last! Now we just need some fine weather to start the garden.

  4. It looks like you are at the top of the world. above the clouds!

    • We were until the cloud found us.

  5. Wonderful! Nature certainly is the best artist as we saw in you previous post, too.

    • It is stunning up on the mountain.

  6. Just beautiful…good luck with the weather and the garden.

    • Oops…forgot to add our address.

      • When you come back it will be beautiful and the raspberries will be growing.

  7. Hope the landscaping is happening soon
    Rain Rain go away for Deb then she will want you back to water the new trees and shrubs.

    • Today we are going to start chopping out brambles.

  8. Oh gosh Debra your photos are fantastic. Lucky you watching sunrises like that every morning. If you’re not yet staying at the house you must have gotten up before sunrise and driven there? Wow you are an early riser. I wish I could do that…

    • We did stay there one night, but I do like to get up early.

  9. Breathtaking! Wonder what sort of Internet connection you have up there? Ours is shocking! I’m also hoping for some rain-free days to attack the garden.

    • The webs are amazing.

    • We used Cloud Italia at the mountain house. It seems to work well.

  10. Yes – I love the rising of the mists – very drammatic. What camera do you use – you get some great close-ups too.

    • I have a Canon G12. It is really easy to use and I think it takes some good photos.

  11. Love the view and I’m envious. Thanks for sharing the good news!

    • The view is heavenly and all we hear up there is birds and the sound of the water from our spring.

      • 🙂

  12. How can you ever bear to leave? You won’t want to soon. Enjoy every moment. x

    • I am pleased we are keeping it for a while. It would be a shame to have something this lovely and sell it immediately.

  13. These photos are making my heart sing! Gorgeous!

    • The view certainly makes my heart sing.
