Where is Casa Margherita?

Casa Margherita is in Umbria, Italy the central land locked region of Italy famous for its olive oil.

Our house and the connected olive grove lie on the Colli Assisi-Spoleto at an altitude of 465 metres above sea level with a SW facing aspect. This later fact mean that our olives (and ourselves) are exposed to the sun for longest possible time during the summer months. During these months the sun rises around 7.00 and sets around 9.00pm.

The exact position of Casa Margherita is 42∘54' 07.32" N 12∘45' 13.30" E - for those of you with access to some earth mapping software will be able the see the actual house (Casa M) and everything in fact.

Tra poco...
