... and I had to nurse it home. It had been giving me trouble for 10 days or so and I thought it was my fault for letting the fuel get too low and therefore the dirty stuff at the bottom had upset it. It turned out to be some computerised part that needed to be reset. On Friday we went to Ventimiglia markets. We tried going by car but after going up the mountain to the entrance to the A8 I realised I couldn’t trust it to go all that way so we drove to the ...

Can you call a taxi - yes, but it is a busy time in Bellamo and it will be a 90 minute wait (there is only one taxi in Bellamo). Can we catch a ferry or hire a boat, maybe but it is a 500 metre walk to the ferry station.

... local atmosphere.”

All is forgiven when we walk out on to the rooftop terrace of Casa Stacy. The views of Lake Como are indeed amazing. Just then, the bell of the church next door starts to chime. “No problem.
