Villa Sassolini

All images Villa Sassolini

This weekend's teleport from the renovations at home is Tuscany. Villa Sassolini is a 14th century villa now an elegant country hotel situated in the village of Moncioni in the heart of the Chianti region.

In between resting in our simple, elegant suites, we can wander through the countryside's ancient vineyards, tour the mediaeval hilltop villages, shop the designer boutiques & soak in the Terme di Saturnia hotsprings.

Following a cooling swim in the inviting pool, we'll feel the warm summer breeze wafting over us as we enjoy a wonderful meal on the Terrace illuminated only by the moonlight and flickering candles.

Benvenuti in Italia!


  1. I want to go! That is gorgeous!
    I recently completed a commission from a fellow blogger... a painting from a photo of a villa in Italy where she stayed... going to post it soon. I have to wait for her ok... she had me do paintings for the owners of the villa... so until they receive their SURPRISE... I can't give it away... but I'm dying to post the project!
    Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by... enjoy your visits!

  2. I'd love to be there right tranquil and beautiful!

  3. Oh look at that view from the bathroom window! Wouldn't it be a nice weekend away. Thanks for the dream. A-M xx


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
