Some years ago Frances Mayes began a new life moving from the USA to restore an abandoned villa in the beautiful, Tuscan countryside. If you have seen the movie 'Under The Tuscan Sun', you will be all too familiar with her story about 'Bramasole''. In 2006 Bramasole was sold and further restored and is now one of the most beautiful villas available to rent in Cortona. With three buildings, the Villa, Farmhouse and Limonaia, I thought today you may enjoy a little tour.

Friends are coming to pick me up today and take me to lunch, a birthday treat. Turning my head towards the window and looking at the cloudy Auckland skies, I am thinking how wonderful it would be to rent out villa Laura for a whole summer (our winter) and have friends and family visit...well everything has to start with a dream and who knows, if you got 20 people together, maybe it could become a reality?
If you wish to rent Villa Laura (formerly Bramasole), or view more images you can find... more information here.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, I have a few things to look forward to so not too worried about the dreary weather, although... I think I can just see a peek of the sun.
I will be sharing this post with the following blogs:
