We awoke to a blanket of snow covering the Umbrian hillsides this morning.
I love how the sparkling snow makes the surroundings beautiful and fresh. It reminds me of beginnings... and it is a great source of conversation around the bars! Umbrians sagely say 'Sotto la neve c'è il pane'. There really is bread under the snow, because it waters the soil that will soon produce wheat used to make breads. I like that!

My advice is to compensate with a lazy afternoon in front of a roaring fire, a hearty dinner: maybe handmade pasta with a ragù of cinghiale (wild boar sauce), and just perhaps before dinner, as the light fades a nice relaxing sauna in a lovely villa in Umbria.

 Here are two properties perfect to enjoy a snowy Umbrian winter.
