Hey it's great to meet you!

Ciao, we're Australians, Lisa & Sam (Salvatore), and we're creating a simple life at the foot of the Alps in Piemonte Italy – along with our children, three cats and one very boofy white dog.

We’ve been exactly where you are: dreaming of creating a life in Italy.

So I'm Lisa, aka you may know me as 'Renovating Italy'.

I became a full time renovator year ago because it was a mutual passion I shared with my husband, I think renovating is in my blood.

We first started buying, renovating & selling homes in Australia and got the bug.

Taking these skills with us to Italy, we are restoring a hamlet at the foot of the Alps, live a simple life, yep we grow our own food, and are fairly self sufficient

Our renovations have expanded from our original 8 Thousand euro house which we live in, to also include the house next door called Casa Bianca, along with our Loft Apartment, and now we have The Army Barrack and Villar House all on the go.

With over 10 years in Italy we host guests from all over the world, inspire thousands of keen renovators to share their own stories and follow their dreams, & lead a growing group of amazing people renovating homes in Italy. I feel like we have found a little slice of paradise, and we want to share it all with you!
