Scottish owners living in Edinburgh who travel regularly to sample the simple relaxation, food and great wine in Italy. Sunday at Alfredo's for lunch is special or go to Massi's or take a trip up to the Cinque Terre and do the 'Walk of Love'
Could always go and see 'David' in Florence or walk in the hills or just sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and take in the views. Oh joy . Mind there is late night Salsa dancing in the summer at Alfredo's and then the Summer and Winter Festivals at Lucca and then the Palio at Bientina
But then again might just sit on the terrace with my glass of wine
I held my 60th Birthday party at the Frantoio in April and invited all the local Italian Neighbours and we played music and danced with our friends in the entrance hall at the Frantoio. Just a great place for a 'Big Birthday'
