A Small Sojourn in Tuscany

I need an adventure.
Would you like to play?

Let's hop in my sweet little '59 Bentley convertible and
wander the backroads of Tuscany - just beyond Florence.

This looks promising ... . . let's explore.


Love the expansive garden and the solid simplicity of the house.


I wonder what's just around that corner .
So much for simplicity .. . . this looks enchanting!
I like.


Let's have lunch while they find just the perfect rooms for us.


Since I requested a suite with a ridiculously fabulous bath .. . .
I'd say this is perfection.

Can't wait to dive into that tub and investigate the frescos . . .

Let's plan on a swim in that divine pool in the garden at sunset.

This is just the weekend sojourn I needed -
I'm thrilled you could join me.

FYI :
We've found the Villa Le Rose,
a 15th century Medici villa nestled in the Florentine hills
and recently renovated by the Ferragamo family.
All six bedrooms and vast gardens can be ours for
around 4,000 euros a night.

Chef & Butler included.

Only 4,000 Euros a night? A mere pittance.
Thanks, J. I'll add it to the list of places where I'll probably never rest my head.

only a butler and chef?

Well, it is a charming little place. I suppose I could rough it for a short visit. Though how I'll make it sans valet is quite the quandry.
