Sant’Anna in Camprena

Sant’Anna in Camprena is in the heart of Tuscany – about 6km from Pienza.  It is a monastery from the 15th century perched on the top of hill with spectacular views of the rolling Tuscan hills.  The buildings are beautiful, the garden is huge and the food is simply amazing.  Having said that this place would be nothing if it […]

Farewell Villanova

We are saying farewell to Agriturismo Villanova.  We had great time here, we had great rest, amazing breakfasts and met some great people from Wurzburg of all places – what a small world!  Everyone’s favourite pet here is Giro, in Italian Geeeero, you really got to stretch that ‘E’.  After Chateau de Varenne, I think this is […]

For the rest of us not taking part in the water fight, we simply just sat around on our porch – enjoying a quiet evening in a peaceful and serene Italian countryside with spectacular views at Agriturismo ai Casoni.  To the right are the mountains, in front is an old country house, to the left […]

Water Fight

At 5pm, when we were coming home from Treviso, it was still 26C outside and very humid.  The best solution for that would be to cool off in the pool which was a bit cold still, so the children went for the second best option – a water fight.  There were no winners in this […]

Tenuta la Presa

Agriturismo at its best. Kasia and Volker know this little place called Tenuta La Presa.  It is a winery that is also a hotel with a proper pool and marble floors and clean everything.   There is a wine rack in the lobby and a set of glasses and you are free to drink and […]
