The Month of May

May is always a very busy month for the Italians and for us, in our little bit of Chianti in Tuscany.

The first week heralded the arrival of our favourite house guest, the sister-in-law and her beautiful daughter. The plan was to get them both on to horseback for country trekking on one day and then up in an air-balloon for a flight over Chianti on her big birthday.    more ...

A Beautiful New Home and a Confused Cat in Beautiful Chianti

If this is your first visit to my column, you should know that each month I talk about the previous one, in this case April. If you are a regular follower, Bentornato!

April was a great month for us, mainly because we moved to a larger and most beautiful property just down the track from the little villa. It is called ‘Querceto’ and this is hardly surprising because it means Oak Tree.    more ...

Benvenuti to my monthly column from beautiful Tuscany.

If you follow this column you will know that each month I send you a potted history of the previous one, in this case March.

Every month brings new and exciting discoveries in our little bit of Chianti and March brought with it one of the highlights of the year. I was in the farmacia (chemist) in Fiano and bumped into our local world famous sculptor, Roberto Manetti.    more ...

Benvenuti to my monthly column from Beautiful Tuscany.

As always I like to reflect back to the previous month, in this case February, and tell you about all the happenings in my little bit of Chianti, and sometimes snippets from other parts of Italy.

Early in the month, my man and I were enjoying morning coffee in Bar Il Solferino in Certaldo, when he noticed something in the newspaper.    more ...

Each month I like to reflect back to the previous one, as it gives you the opportunity to read about our little bit of Chianti, in Tuscany and what life is all about here. No, I’m sorry, you will not find Tuscan recipes and lots of talk about food, the exception being restaurants, but you will get to know the locals and what is in the daily newspapers as I drink my morning coffee in Certaldo!    more ...
