The height of fall

Santo Stefano di Sessanio, Italy

After traveling the world for more than a decade, I decided it was time to bring my biggest fan to one of my favourite places on earth. A place where life is lived how it’s meant to be lived. That brings together things that really matter, family, food, passion, nature, well-being and history. A place that is rich in every sense of the word and that holds a special place in my heart. I brought my mother to Italy, in the height of fall season, to discover the Central Apennines mountain range in Abruzzo. 

Thanks to G-rough for showing us what real Roman hospitality is about and thanks to Sextantio Santo Stefano di Sessanio for conserving one of the most extraordinary corners of Italy and for making this trip a memory that will last for a lifetime.
