I'm Stephanie.

I am so very excited that you decided to join me here at Stephanie Synclair Home, formerly Southern Girl in Italy! During the pandemic, I decided that it was time for me to stop dreaming about life in Europe and time for me to embrace it. I've always been fond of France and Italy and ultimately ended up buying a in Italy. I bought a home in a medieval village about 45 mins outside of Palermo in Sicily. I am now working on making it a home. I've got to go through the visa process, decorate, organize, etc and I would like to take you on the journey as well. This site is the behind the scenes of what its like creating and living a life, in Italy as well as bringing the European lifestyle that I love so much home to the states when I am here. I truly believe that the life you love should go wherever you are.
