February 2015, the planning stage

During the winter in Salento, there are very few restaurants open at lunchtimes. However, the lovely people in Castiglione often open up for us at lunch as we meet with our friends and architects to plan the house. Very civilised way to discuss our next steps…



From the moment we saw the house, we scamped out our ideas for the layout and emailed them to our architect, Stefano Arseni.


So, on our return to Italy to discuss the development and build, planning and selection of a builder, Stefano had interpreted our plans and presented them to us with some pride!
