An Insider's Guide to Italy

The Regions of Piedmont, Marche, Sardinia and Liguria

Eleven years ago my Italian wife and I (that's us in the photo) moved to Piedmont Italy.

Over the years we have discovered some real gems amongst the places, people, beaches and cuisine of Piedmont, Sardinia, Marche and Liguria.

My Italy Family

Everything that is so wonderful about Italy can be found in these four regions.

Beaches, better than any other in Europe, with turquoise seas and ivory sands, delightful landscapes of vineyard covered hills, ancient villages and elegant cities.

Don't even think about going anywhere else until you've been here.

We fell in love with it all and we would challenge anyone to spend time here and not to fall in love too.


About these Italian Regions

Piedmont

Turin/Torino, Piedmont's capital, has been our home for most of our years in Italy. This Italian region is fantastic and offers everything that Tuscany does but more, including dare I say it - better food and wine. In fact the best food on earth!

Le Marche

Absolutely gorgeous! A year after I moved to Turin my wife and I rented a villa in Le Marche. That summer is one we'll never forget and this enchanting region captured our hearts forever.

Sardinia/Sardegna

Sardinia has by far the best Italian beaches, in fact these are the best beaches in Europe and maybe the world.

Our family has spent years splashing about in gentle waves and building sand castles on castor sugar beaches, all in an attempt to discover the best beaches. We've narrowed it down to a few truly spectacular ones.

I'm sure the photos under our Sardinian section will help convince you too!

Liguria

Liguria is where you'd find us most weekends during summer.

It's a short drive south from Turin and is home to some of Italy's most spectacular coastal landscapes.

Browse through the pages under our Liguria section to be transported to this magical world.

Our hope is that through exploring our site you will be inspired to visit "our" Italy. For you too, as it was for us, it could be the beginning of a life-changing experience.

OK, "enough chatter." Let's start exploring ...
