Podere La Casina – This farmhouse is the traditional refuge in summer and winter of the family that purchased the property many years ago.  Lovers of the simple life, they take refuge in this rustic hideaway with its splendid views of the surrounding countryside, where the sun climbs and descends in the silent splendor of a natural environment.  Around them grow the olive trees and vines that yield the olive and wine they share with the many friends they have made in the area.  Part of the estate has been left as woodland, which helps to keep the climate cool in the summer and mild in winter…  -excerpt from page 104, Tuscany Interiors

  1. Delores! So glad you stopped by! It reminded me to visit your site. I hadn't been out and about in blog world for a few days. The last few posts you did have some of my favorite things…your spring gardening photos and Mill Valley has always been a favorite place. I love the quaint town square and coffee shop at the center with all the surrounding shops. Very European lay-out with the communal gathering place.
    I have the same dream to live in Tuscany…Sempre sognando l'Italia! ~LeAnn
