|view from the hill behind our home....so peaceful.|
The village holds special sentiment to us but also the land, views and peacefulness is not met by any other location. For us this life is simple and restorative. We spend as much time in the village as we are able. Video of the Village from the hills. Being that we are here in the fall we have processed our grapes for wine with help from our neighbor, pickled cabbage, watched the neighbors collect and dry the walnuts and bring in the cold crops before further frost.

Many homes have cows, during the summer they graze all day up in the hills every evening they walk through the village to return home to be milked. We have spent many summer evenings waiting for the cows to come home.
