Our First Evening at Baur's B&B

How do I start to describe the feeling of "coming home" to our room here? Of course, we were excited to see Diana and Max (and Micha when he returns tomorrow evening), but everything about being here at the Baur's especially, and in Piemonte in general, is comfortable and feels lovely. Warm, sweet, gracious people, a soothing, calm and beautiful setting, a perfect size town, wonderful food, fabulous wine...life here is good.

We had a wonderful evening with Diana. We laughed, talked about wine, World affairs, Italy trips, and several bottles of vino were consumed! We had a delicious dinner of chicken tonnato, baked fennel with gorgonzola, roasted peppers with ricotta, rosemary and pepperocino, and garbanzo bean salad. Dessert was "happy fruit" in a bowl of brachetto.

It was a perfect first evening in Piemonte, and Max loves his new pink hippo toy!
We slept well, enjoying the luscious linens, comfortable surroundings and wonderful bathrooms. Diana's new kitchen is to die for, and my favorite addition is the 24 hour coffee machine!!!

Max is the sweetest dog in Italy!

Sounds lovely! And I guess this means the laptop is safely with you now?

Ahhhh, bella Palma,
That's the best portrait I've ever seen of you! Very pretty face and the most joyous eyes ever.
Looks like you are the happiest of happy. Must have something to do with being in Italy and with Diana and Max...
Ciao,
Brenda

Barb Cabot:

Palma, so so happy to finally see an entry on your blog. I'm going to settle back now and explore what you have to say. We've missed reading about your adventures but I'm sure you and Brad have been having a "dreamy wonderful" time.
Enjoy these days in bella Italia.

That sounds so fantastic, and what a lovely photo of you and Max!!

(And coffee that's available round the clock sounds like heaven!)
