September this year we will be visiting Agiturismo Le Buche de Viesca in Tuscany for the sixth time. We have been going back every year since 2004 for a stay of either 1 or 2 weeks. And why? Because we love all this and more: visiting the busy Firenze for art, shopping and city fun, visiting Siena for the same reasons, visiting Arezzo for some more shopping. And also exploring the chianti hills, tasting (even more) wine, tasting olive oil here and there, the food, the cakes, the coffees and just being there. Visiting what used to be the homes of people like Da Vince, Galilei, Boccaccio etc. And learning to know restaurants and places where there is little or no tourists for that extra, genuine, tasty food. Or just relaxing at the pool, letting the sun charge our batteries, our D-vitamin levels and what else there is to charge and prepare for a winter i Norway. And with hosts like Angela, Marcello and Luigi who are always willing to share their knowledge of Tuscany, food, restataurants, wine etc. with us it makes the whole stay so healthy. It’s not just a place to stay (non soltanto una casa di vacanza), it’s a place where you are most welcome and where they go way beyond the italian hospiltality in making sure that you are having a nice time.
Ci vediamo in Settembre!
