Michael & Peggy Hunt moved from Pembrokeshire to Italy two years ago.
They now live on the Tuscan / Umbrian border in Locanda Delle Rose among 300 olive trees, enquiring neighbours and over-familiar wildlife.
"Oddly, it is not so different from Pembrokeshire at all, " they say. "We have felt at home from the very beginning."

This is the second attempt as we had another computer melt down that resulted in starting with everything all over again on a clean hard drive. Its been a month for this sort of thing, Mikes caught a virus and it took 3 days to stop the thing logging on and he had to sort out a new anti-virus program. Jean & Nello's HDD broke and the new one was installed only in Italian and it took us 3 days to upgrade Windows & to ultimate and transfer language packs then download the programs she uses in English. Stephens mirror back up disc started to wobble and had to be replaced.....is it something in the air or the sun's magnetic reversal causing it?
