General Discussion / Re: Bonfires
« Last post by levissima on Today at 08:41:53 AM »
I think it?s June ( the whole of ) to September ( the whole of) but different commune have different rules, it?s like the old by-laws in the UK, set locally.

It?s also important to take conditions into account, some farmers near me lit a fire to burn off the twigs after felling some trees, in March. We?d had very little rain in spring and they set the whole wood alight, the helicopter had to be called to put it out and, word is, they?ll get the bill! An expensive mistake!

Does anyone know the dates when we can't have a bonfire on our meadow.  Previously it was stated June to September but
is it beginning of June to beginning of September, or other dates?

I would check with your commune. In our village if you ask the commune about large collections of household rubbish, they will give you a date for you to leave it outside and they will collect it

Hi,  Does anyone have information on whether there are recycling facilities in the Casoli/Atessa area?  Even as far as Lanciano.  Mainly cardboard and plastic.  There is too much for the local collection to take away.  I'm looking for the kind of place that one takes bulk household refuse to in the UK.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I could not find any information about it.

Thanks for any suggestions.

They sound quite similar to my brood!
Alas our place in Pettorano is occupied by ourselves for some of that period but you are quite right to think the hills are cooler by a few degrees and there always seems to be a little up draught which helps as well.
I wish them luck .

Hi,

I've got a friend who has messaged me asking for Italian holiday away from most Brits (Abruzzo!) .  I've given them some coastal links but please feel free to link me to your inland rentals (town or country).  They are two adults and three children (approx age 8 to 11 ish).  They love nature.  However, they need something not too expensive and the husband struggles with heat a bit (hence suggesting inland).  Not sure if a pool is necessary or not.

Are you allowed to put links up to your rentals and suggest places they could stay?

Mid July to end of summer school holidays.

Many thanks in advance.

I wonder if asking around in bars in villages and leaving your contact details would help in your quest?
