Revealing The New Il Casale di Mele Website

I am sure everyone who has visited this blog before knows that we are fortunate to live in Umbria six months a year and during that period we rent out a farmhouse, Il Casale di Mele to guests. I have been working with Lindsay of Purr Design over the past month to give our farmhouse website a new up to date look and I’m thrilled with the finished product and just wanted to share it with everyone. Lindsay also was the one who gave Italian Food Forever a new look last fall, and I just love working with her.

Although I love the whole design, I really think the photos show off the property much better on the new site, giving everyone a better feeling of what it is like here in Umbria, our little piece of paradise. The cute little apple tree (Mele means “apples”) at the top of each page was created for me personally by Laura Heron of Etsy. Laura also created the sunflowers for me on IFF and is another very talented lady!

Have a look at the new Il Casale di Mele site, I think you’ll find it very user friendly, and hopefully looking over the photos you will be encouraged to consider visiting our lovely region of Umbria on your next trip to Italy!

  1. What a fantastic website! Thanks especially for the Bella Umbria section, which lists all the street markets, antique markets, points of interest, and travel etiquette. Very helpful!
