This holiday was like a dream, a dream called Tuscany! For a long time I've wanted to visit the Val d'Orcia. I had heard so much about this place and on the anniversary of my wedding, my husband and I decided to spend two weeks in this land that gave us much more than we could expect.
For the accommodation, I chose a wonderful holiday farmhouse situated on top of a hill a few kilometers from the beautiful Pienza, one of the UNESCO world heritage site of Italy. I visited many villages, all beautiful and rich in history.
I enjoyed the hot springs, I had lunch in great trattorias, tasted traditional dishes and even learned how to make the famous Tuscan homemade spaghetti called Pici. A holiday that will remain in my heart for a long time and that I recommend to anyone looking for relax and great food!
