An Italian Afternoon walk

We’ve just woken up on our last morning in Tuscany. Bags are being packed, car sorted before we drive down to Rome tonight for our last night in Italy. Tomorrow we fly out at 10pm…arriving back Wednesday morning first thing.

Yesterday afternoon I went for a walk down the little lane our villa is on. It was just before sunset and the light was dead set perfect. I wanted to soak up every last bit of this place.

You could smell the earth starting to get cooler. Hear the birds getting their last flights in before the night settled. You could also hear BELLS! From up in the town ringing out over valley where the house is. And you could see every shade of green, the last warm sunshine on the trees lighting the way as I went. It was gorgeous.

Tuscany and its countryside sure are beautiful. It’s been a wonderful place to be these past 2 weeks.

  1. So many gorgeous images… I’ve always wanted to go to Italy and set myself up Stealing Beauty-style in a fabulous Tuscan villa, and your holiday posts have completely brought it to life for me. Saving starts NOW!

  2. Oh Beth some glorious light in those pics. You brought back so many beautiful memories for me of our travels in Italy. I loved Roma & we had a wonderful day trip to San Gimi (all long before our 3 cherubs arrived). You’re a legend for doing it with 3. Belissimo!!!!
