Tuscan Tranquility

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’


The Villa

For one week last month my husband and I, and five other couples from our neighbourhood, took a trip of a life time/checked a box on our bucket list …

we rented a villa in Tuscany.

From the moment everyone was on board it took about a year of planning, including locating a suitable villa that met ALL of our specifications.

None of us had done anything like this before so there was a bit of flying-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-type planning, but in the end we got exactly what we wanted …

Tuscan tranquility.

The beautiful infinity pool played a major part in the vacation equation.

When the early June temps rose to 35C we enjoyed nothing more than a dip in the pool after a long day of sightseeing.

It was pure heaven … in pure heaven.


The Pool

Oh … the view!!!

We bought a ball at the local market and played with it in the water, and then left it there for the next group coming in.



Cooling off after a long day sightseeing. Bellissimo!


Back of Villa

Our room on the second floor overlooked the pool.



Oh, glorious sunset!



Now, after looking at these images, I just want to go back.

This was probably one of the loveliest experiences of my life so far.


More on our Tuscan adventure in later posts …
