In my youth already, I was attracted to old houses. I compared them to that of my godfather where with my parents we went very often. My father had grown up there and for us, it was always a pleasure to be welcomed and I immersed myself at the same time, unconsciously, the charm of the house, the park where I played with my cousins . Ah, beautiful days!
No doubt this wonderful time has been initiator of my desire to live in this wonderful atmosphere of the countryside where life is punctuated by the bell of the village church.
As time went by, I came closer to these places which, in my opinion, should not be forgotten, and indifference reinforced my determination to save them.
Nurse by profession I knew Tailly by coming to care in the neighboring property. The atmosphere and charm of the place, the smell of wild garlic that emanated from the park added to the feeling of a past found, as the similarity was strong with memories of childhood. The property was in a state of total abandonment, without maintenance, giving way to the passage of time.
In the park, the trees grew anarchic, some even more than a hundred years old, of impressive dimensions and rare species are listed in the guides of the forest. This freedom left to nature has allowed all wildlife to settle and prosper. Several species of animals have multiplied there, birds, squirrels, snails, which as a family, cross the lawns and venture close to the house. A stream runs through the property and wild ducks come to play. So many furtive and privileged moments at the sight of deer, deer and their young. "
