Living Italy

Having moved to Umbria in 1988 Neil Moore and Carol Searle restored an ancient tower from which they created and raised a family of three children.  They developed Hidden Italy both as a way of inserting themselves into the local communities and introducing their new lifestyle through their Australian connections.  The accommodations they choose reflect their context in place, ambience and design, and represent rather than conquer the region. The itineraries reflect their close connection to the area, its history, culinary traditions and its art, with the local people always central to the experience. They embrace local culture, enthusiastically explore all aspects of authentic cultural heritage, and work directly with the local community and support local guides, shopkeepers, restaurateurs, providores, artists, musicians and artisans.
