Het Italie Evenement in Haarzuilens is dit jaar op 2-,21 en 22 mei, wederom bij Kasteel de Haar.Dertien een ongeluksgetal? Natuurlijk niet! Dertien is het getal van het grote genieten, van samen feest vieren en bij voorkeur in een heel mooie tuin. Wat een toeval!Het zijn wederom de tuinen van Kasteel de Haar in Utrecht waar Maestro Events in mei weer zijn little Italy laat opbouwen. Een vanzelfsprekendheid, want het ‘Italiaanste’ feest in Nederland is vooral een belevenis, misschien wel het meest levendige evenement. In de prachtige parktuinen van Haarzuilens moet je Italië namelijk ruiken, proeven, voelen en ervaren.

Visit La Badia in S. Arcangelo | Villa in Umbria | Scoop.it
On a cloudy day we visited an ancient monastery dating back to the year 1000 overlooking Lake Trasimeno in Umbria. This restored abby “La Badia” has 16 apartments of which two are unused: these are made where once the wine cellars were. As you can imagine nobody wants to live in a dark and damp apartment, not…

Winter in Umbria

Winter in Umbria | Villa in Umbria | Scoop.it
It is winter in Umbria and very quiet in Umbria. Many shops in Castiglione del Lago are closed until Carnival, or even until the end of February. My home town is semi deserted now. During the weekly market there are less stalls, many stay at home because of the colder weather. Fortunately my fruit and vegetable…

Typical food from Trentino Alto Adige | Villa in Umbria | Scoop.it
Some years ago I lived in Trentino, in Arco at Lake Garda. The local cuisine in Trentino Alto Adige is everything but boring. The food of this region is flavoured by other cultures. Many years ago Trentino used to be Austria. Many Trentini speak Italian as well as German, and the further you move to…

Umbrië wordt het groene hart van Italië genoemd. Een authentieke regio in het midden van Italië. | Villa in Umbria | Scoop.it

Umbrië wordt het groene hart van Italië genoemd. Een authentieke regio in het midden van Italië. Umbrië wordt nog altijd een beetje ondergewaardeerd als het kleinere zusje van Toscane. 

In de Middeleeuwse steden in Umbrië, zoals Gubbio, Spello, Spoleto, Assisi en Perugia, zijn veel kunstschatten te zien.
