Property features

Who we are

  1. We are an older couple, Bob and Mary, with a lovely 9 year old daughter Natasha. We have a chance to fulfill a dream we had several years ago to spend our summers in Italy, learning the language and exposing our daughter to the art and culture of this fantastic country. Mary spent a year in Italy 25 years ago studying piano, so learned some of the language then. Bob has sung many operas in Italian in local productions, and even Natasha has been involved in opera.
    For those people who might be interested from Denmark, we have added Denmark to our list of destinations because good friends of ours are moving there, and we are likely to travel to Denmark on a regular basis.
    There is an alternative to exchanging to Norwich. My sister and her husband live in a beautiful house on Vancouver Island overlooking a lake - this is in British Columbia on Vancouver Island.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Although we live in Norfolk we have a ski hill with year-long facilities; this is within walking distance, in Whitlingham Park - where you can learn various water sports, walk in gorgeous woodland, fish, and paint. 15 minutes drive from us at the University of East Anglia is the Sainsbury Centre, home to an extraordinary collection of modern and ancient art. A 15 minute bike-ride, 30 minute walk, bus or 5 minute drive takes us to the centre of Norwich, a medieval city with Castle, Cathedral, medieval buildings and a cobbled street, and terrific shopping. 30-50 minutes drive takes us to the seaside with sandy beaches - lovely for swimming. And of course, Norfolk is home to the Broads, a wonderful fantasy land for children called Bewilderwood, and several large estates with gardens and historic houses for tourists.
Our train station is 15 minutes taxi ride when traffic is moderately busy, and then 2 hours to London, and about an hour to Cambridge. There are services to seaside towns such as Cromer, and Sheringham which have wonderful beaches for swimming, as does Great Yarmouth which also has seaside amusement arcades, rides etc.
