Your pocket guide to Guardia Sanframondi is about to go to press!
It is not a conventional guidebook: it will not mention anything to do with historical blahblah or wine festivals or bus timetables: it’ll be about all the potent stuff which you can’t find, on-line or otherwhere.
It’s packed with essential insider info which a person who’s looking to buy a house here will crave: the missing lights to land you steady and firmly on the ground here.

The new community in the centro storico (medieval quarter) of Guardia is expanding and evolving: cultural projects of all kinds are being set up, folks are being inspired – here and abroad – to follow their dreams and transform their lives.
There’s a definite buzz and atmosphere, which is radiating ouwards, and this is bound to accelerate even further, as yet another episode of house hunters TV has just been filmed.
It’s not all La Dolce Vita though!
There are plenty of questions and frictions, folks being ripped off and needs not being met which, as the only foreigner living here year-round, long-term and intimately connected with the local and foreign communities, I’m the best qualified to advise on.
The book will also have info for how to deal the weather and wildlife summer and winter, maps to orientate you, and loads of tips and hints to make life run as smooth as it possibly can, once you arrive.
And this week, I’m calling out to all of you who have visited/ would love to visit, the town:
