Villa in Tuscany

I thought I would share some photos of where we are now spending some time - at a beautiful villa in Tuscany which is owned by some friends of my brother and his wife. This is the village which is close by. We have enjoyed some fantastic meals in a couple of the little trattorias!


And this is the villa - built in 1647 and renovated in 2003, it is just beautiful! I am truly enjoying "Living under the Tuscan Sun"!! It is so relaxing and peaceful and the countryside surrounding is absolutely picture postcard stuff!


Under the grape vines (which are covered in grapes) we have enjoyed sitting at this table and having some great local breakfasts!


And the view from one of the sunroom windows is just divine!

  1. Your pictures are stunning Fiona! I almost feel like I'm there with you. Then the spell is broken and I look around, lol! It looks like you're having a marvellous time. I can't wait to show these pics to my coworker Louise. She's leaving in late October for Tuscany.

  10. Great pictures - thanks for sharing. I visited Italy many years ago, and it's always been the one place in Europe that I would definitely visit if I ever went back.
