About Stephen C Brown
In 2013 we made the momentous decision to move to Emilia Romagna. We found a house that fulfilled our requirements, the main one being beautiful views in every possible direction! Family and friends visit us here regularly. We live a relaxed country life with our dog and cats, and have relished the work involved in renovating this large house which had been empty for twenty years. We have been thrilled by the warm welcome of all the local people we have met, and are delighted to feel a part of the community in such a short space of time. My wife Caroline grew up in Northern Italy where she learned Italian before her family returned to England. The area appealed to us both for the setting and the climate. We have full-blown winters with lots of snow and summers where the temperatures often sit around the low 30s for weeks at a time. This is a lovely quiet environment, which is also close enough to cultural centres to fulfil a broad range of holiday requirements.

Why Stephen C Brown chose Polinago
When you sit outside the house you hear absolutely nothing except the occasional bird of prey, working tractor or chainsaw. Very occasionally you hear classical music coming across the valley, and we think this may be the local farmer playing music to his cows which produce milk for Parmigiano Reggiano cheese! The peace and tranquility is the main reason we chose this location, as well as the chance to live a simple life without the influence of too much modern technology and noise. Our lives and diets have changed immeasurably simply by following the Italian way of using fruit and vegetables when they are in season, rather than buying everything all year round from the supermarkets.
What makes this apartment unique
There is an impressive array of seasonal foods available in Emilia Romagna. You may want to try the Modena balsamic vinegar, the Parma ham or the Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan cheese, not to mention the range of wines also on our doorstep. This is a large and airy apartment only recently completed, and is easy to get to from Bologna airport (about 70 minutes). We supply a simple welcome pack of food and drink so that you don't have to rush out shopping the moment you get here.
