New to living in the Valtellina (SO)!
My name is CaroleB, I'm a pensioner and I now live in bassa Valtellina at the top end of Lake Como. Can't actually see the lake from my place (far too expensive). So if anyone lives anywhere in Lombardia, north of Milano let me know and we can get together for a 'cup of tea'.... This is my second time living in Italy - I was here for nearly 10 years in the late 60's, early 70's. I married a Milanese guy, and my son was born here. Then it was back to the UK for family reasons, but we always said we would retire here. Well that's just what I've done - sold up and moved 'lock, stock and barrel' over here. I found a ruined house and had it restructured - dealt with all the beurocracy that only Italians can throw at you and finally moved in here in mid May. Oh just as an aside, two days after signing for the house (ruin) last year, I had a heart attack and spent two and a half months in Italian (Milanese) hospitals, so I know quite a bit about them too.
If I can assist anyone with advice on any of these points, don't hesitate to ask.
