Summer 2014 - Tuscany

Have you made plans for the summer yet?

The nice thing about booking your vacation now is that not only does it gives you lots of time to plan what to do whilst you're there, but it also gives you lots of time to get excited about where you're going. I love to have something to look forward to. Don't you?

Last year we rented a cottage in England and we LOVED it.


It was one of our favorite vacations ever, so this year we decided to rent a villa in Tuscany. I am actually really glad that we booked it when we did because the villa that we wanted it already fully booked for all of our available dates. Our summer is so full because of visitors and summer camps that if we had waited another week we would have lost it, and trust me when I say that this is the one that I fell in love with.

We found our villa at this website.

There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms so we will all have our own space, a private pool as well as an outdoor dining area that is just quintessential Tuscany. It's in the middle of a vineyard and there are lots of small towns nearby to explore. We are planning day trips to Florence and Pisa. We are also flying in and out from Munich and have 3 nights both before and after our week at the villa to see other things. We are definitely going to explore the romantic road in Germany, but can't decide between Switzerland or Austria for our final few days.

I'm having so much fun planning what we're going to see and do but I also try to balance out the busy touristy time with plenty of free time when we can just hang out by the pool, or shop at a nearby market.

Do any of you have any recommendations of what we must do in Tuscany?

    2. We have been talking about doing this vacation for several years and are so excited that we are finally able to do it. A bonus of my husband no longer being a CEO is that he is finally able to get away from it all. Let me know if there was anything that you particularly recommend Leigh.
