Steady progress on the apartment:

  • shelving in alcoves, niches, window, dividing stub wall and roof landing
  • electrical sockets installed
  • refurbished front door installed and looking good

  • stone bench on the roof


Shopping done:
  • two 140 cm beds: one for Trullo Azzurro, one for Sotto le Stelle
  • arranged washing machine move from Trullo Azzurro to Sotto le Stelle while scaffolding and winch still in place
  • new washing machine ordered for Trullo Azzurro for our guests
  • up-lighters for Sotto le Stelle to illuminate the arches
  • internet and wi-fi installed at Trullo Azzurro
We even moved in our first piece of furniture - the day bed from Trullo Azzurro.


We are not going out in August but we hope to be able to sleep in the apartment in September. There will be deliveries of a fitted kitchen, dining table, bed and washing machine.
