The house is in shambles. I ping pong from one project to the next, dropping whatever I am doing as soon as I notice a potentially more pressing task sitting across the room. Nothing is done. Everything is everywhere.
We are moving. Again.
It’s a happy move. It’s an impulsive move.
A move undertaken due to good luck rather than bad. We will finally have two bedrooms to welcome our friends and family from around the globe into our corner of Rome.
The boxes and suitcases, and mishmash of nicknacks, was another trigger for my reminiscent trip to Pietrasanta. The temporary chaos in the apartment makes me want to escape to a more tranquil setting.
For me, that means a Tuscan villa.
The villa I’m picturing is located a few minutes drive or bike ride away from both Pietrasanta and the beaches of Versilia.
Full of light, the villa sits in the tiny village of Valdicastello.
Close to the chic action of Pietrasanta, the house itself is on a quiet street with the view of the mountains.
My favorite thing about the house was to be the Secret Garden-style backyard.
With a pool, naturally. This villa doesn’t mess around.
To rent or for more information on the villa (called Sahira), you can contact the owners.
I’d trade just about anything to leave behind this half-packed house right about now and trade places for Tuscany.
