Atina, the Val di Comino and Ciociaria


A Little More About Me (page 2)












My husband, Paul, and I have been living in Italy for almost 4 years now. The place we chose to call our

new home is the small town of Itri - a sweet little town nestling in the foothills of the Aurunci Mountains

This region of South Lazio is so rich in natural beauty, history, culture and is noted for its temperate climate, and rainless summers. To compliment the beautiful mountain scenery there is a spectacular coastline, with numerous golden sandy beaches, rocky coves, hidden caves and sheltered harbours.













We purchased an abandoned Farmhouse and have renovated it.into 2 Holiday Apartments that we let out to guests:  

You can see where we live here at our Website :


I am also writing about our adventures whilst creating a new life for ourselves in “Bella Italia” in our Blogs:

"Avanti Sempre Avanti":

“Tre Cancelle” Blog:


We often visit Atina, Montecassino and surrounding area, and are getting to know the area well.


One of our hobbies is photography and another is Family History, we are registered with the

Guild of One Name Studies and are carrying out a One Name Study of the Surname Shapcott.

We’ve recently joined the Anglo-Italian Family History Association


I am researching the following surnames in the Atina area:

Leonardi, Del Prete, Rossi, Farina, Salvia, Bracciale, Tortolani, Di Fiore, Pesce, Massa, Capogrossi, Rolfi


Last year we had 3 sets of guests staying who were tracing their family roots in the Atina / Ciociaria area.

We did our  very best to help them and took them on a tour of the area.


If you share my passion for Atina, the Val di Comino and Ciociaria,

or if you have family that originated from this beautiful area of Italy  ...


Please do feel free to get in contact


- I would love to hear from you.
