Dreaming of Tuscany

I might be going to Florence (Italy) with my friends Sue & Teresa in May. Still working out details....but I have been perusing websites, drinking in all of Tuscany's glorious countryside.

If we didn't have a place already lined up, I'd like to stay in a farmhouse...perhaps one like Bianchi....

We could dine outside...under the disco ball !


According to the website
Charming farmhouse in Tuscany, a villa restored in the Tuscan style situated amidst the hills surrounding the lovely medieval town of Cortona. The property is in very quiet location and offers charming extensive views over the Chiana valley, in Tuscany. The villa is simply and comfortably furnished in a typical Tuscany country style.

Yep...that would work for me.

You MUST go!!!!
As you know I met my husband in Florence.
It is so blissful.
I know it's madly popular......... but for VERY good reasons.
Have a magic trip and write to me if you need any hints etc.
We were last there in 2008.
Happy week.

Yes, truly a dream come true...'Under the Tuscan Sun'...I would beg borrow and steal...well, maybe not steal, but what ever it took, I'd be packing my bags!!!

Good luck!!!

May will be the perfect month to go - less crowded than summer, but with all the warmth that spring can muster - lovely! I hope you're planning to shop - Italian leather boots, ceramics, Venetian glass, those beautiful papers they print... So fun! I hope you'll blog your trip!

Whenever we have gone to France or Italy, we always rented a farmhouse. It was fantastic, private and perfect for melding in with the locals. I'll just pack myself away in your purse!!

A farmhouse in Tuscany--how could you not have a great time?! I hope all arrangements fall smoothly into place and that you'll soon have a plane ticket in hand. Good luck!!

Very pretty! Looks like a wonderful place to escape to.

Diva-
I agree it is most certainly a must to have alfresco dining, to smell the vines!You will most definitely have a blast.

Oh, if you can possibly go...GO! I have been to Tuscany a few times and each time I leave a piece of my heart. I spent one Chrsitmas and New Year's in Lucca- it's a remarkable walled-village. Please keep us up to date on your exciting plans.

I just like saying "Tuscany." Conjours up all sorts of promising possibilities. :)
