The House of the Red Roses
La Casa delle Rose Rosse
At the edge of the village of Lucarelli, which lies along the valley below Le Ripe, stands a large stone house where some friendly, helpful locals live. The family kindly brought their tractor up to Le Ripe one day when the man who sometimes delivers wood got stuck in the mud.
Every year in May the house on its triangle of land glows with red roses. An avenue of red roses along one side lights up the drive.
The house itself is covered with a magnificent red climbing rose.
