|Castello Brown, Portofino, Italy|
Anyway, they bought this other house but she doesn't write much about it. All I know is that it was tumbling down stones when they found it. They still own Bramasole and use this mountain house as a getaway. Sweet, huh?
She writes about short stays in other Italian cities, wine tasting, and food. Always food. So here we have perfect hotel rooms, perfect vineyards, and perfect meals.
They do visit Castello Brown in Portofino where The Enchanted April was filmed. Here is what she has to report:
And enchant it does. Bees are mining the orange trees and everywhere I look the view is blue, blue, blue. The position defies description. The house is a pivot around which the sea turns. It's empty this morning and wandering the rooms, I easily can construct a fantasy life.
I like reading about some of the towns and would like to read more about the little stone house they restored. Maybe later on in the book. Perhaps she doesn't want to give too much away for safety's sake.
