Dog beaches in Sardinia

We have just decided to rent our villa to people with a dog too. After all, we have a lovely dog ourselves  and know how difficult it is to stay in a nice place that also accept animals.

And the other good news is that they are constantly new “pet friendly” beaches in Sardinia. They were barely any 2 years ago, they are now 24 of them at the time of writing.

On The Sardinian flag

Here is another popular post from Canadian expat & Sardinian blogger Jennifer Avventura (by the way, is that your real surname ? Awesome !) about the rather unusual and ever so slightly changing Sardinian flag. Read the comments at the end as well as they provide more info.

Now with wireless internet !!

We didn’t quite dare believe it would happen for this year honestly. Italians compagnies tend to promise the world on paper but not deliver much !

We now stand corrected ! The guys turned up yesterday. All 5 of them for 3H00 !! But it works … and fast at that (4 GB speed, always on !)

I was meant to be getting on with gardening here this am. Instead, I shall carry on using every room to skype, update the website and general social networking. “Avoiding proper work” you say ? Surely not 😉

On the joy of cushions !

As with many couples, my partner and I hold different views on diverse topics.

We are pretty much singing from the same sheet on wildlife, environmental issues, political opinions etc. Malcolm actually taught me my first English protest song.

One issue we seem to disagree on though is cushions.

He says “they are for girls”. His male friends tend to agree actually….

I think they add a level of comfort and prettiness to any sofas, beds ….

Just imagine the following rooms without those cushions :

Romantic "colonial style" with four poster bed.

Romantic “colonial style” with four poster bed.

2 beds small

new lounge

Not so great without them, right ?

You guys can vote too. So, are you pro, against or cushions neutral ?

Welcome to our 1st guests ever !

We welcomed Phillip and Angela yesterday from rainy Peterborough. They arrived in pleasant warmth in Perfugas, the countryside now filled with spring flowers.

Much to their pleasure, the temperatures are in the low to mid 20’s currently and the forecast is for sunshine for the next 10 days . When I asked if I could type a few words on my website from them, they said they plan to “soak up that sun, relax and read books”

Spring is definitely on !!
