Example text

Count Agostini’s ancestors again? It is quite heady for a short while to think that we can actually live here surrounded by such richness. We shower and change and descend the white marbled staircase to meet Charlie and Eva with happy hearts. Sitting in the main salon, our jaws drop at the scale of grandeur. We order spumante, the sweet fizz the Italians love to drink before dinner, a drink we Australians gave up a few decades ago and wish never to revisit. But there is no choice here if we want to drink bubbles, and we do, because this place calls for a cork to be popped.

We sit in the grotto section of the house, a stone-walled cave-like dining room that still feels open thanks to big folding doors that swing right back to let the glorious garden meander inside.
