lol! Quite simply, we are planning to open a B&B and thought we could kill two birds with one stone by networking with expats in the area we are considering of moving to and picking brains about running a B&B in Italy. My husband doesn't speak Italian yet and so it is important for him to be able to ask the questions and hear the answers for himself rather than through my (sometimes dodgy) translation!!

Ah!! I don't know any in the area you are looking at but I know someone who runs one up in Piemonte, Diana Strinati Baur - if you google her she should come up under her blog "A certain simplicity." I'm sure she would be happy to answer questions but I also know she networks with other B&B owners, many of whom are expats or married to Italians. Another one to look for is Brigolante apartments. Rebecca is also an English speaker and they are in Umbria. Sorry I don't know any in your area but talking to non-competitors might be better anyway...Gelato may also add her voice if she sees this as her OH runs one down in Rome..
