Il Convento by Philip Bloom

A beautiful video shot by the legendary filmaker Philip Bloom showing the magic of the 60-acre estate of Il Convento, with the house perched on a hill in Umbria overlooking Lake Trasimeno and surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.

Coast of Argentario

The beautiful unspoilt and rugged south west coastline of Monte Argentario from Le Cannelle towards Porto Ercole with the islands of Giglio and Giannutri in the distance. The look-out towers Torre delle Cannelle and Torre Ciana stud the coastline and are a constant reminder of more belligerent times in the 16th century when the Spanish gained control of the area and strove to consolidate their trading position in the Mediterranean. At Porto Ercole, one of the two main towns on Argentario, the fortresses of La Rocca, Filippo, Santa Carolina and Stella dominate the hillside above the perfect little natural harbour. Now that Porto Ercole is a place more associated with pleasure, good food, boats and relaxation the profusion of these fortifications rather takes one by surprise but adds another interesting angle to this incredibly picturesque little port.

Villa Cala Grande

Surrounded by its extensive (approx. 20 hectares) mature terraced gardens and hillside of Mediterranean maquis with beautiful sea views, the Cala Grande estate is a wonderful venue for two to three families. There are two main residences, which must be taken together, stand some 100 metres apart and in total they sleep up to 12 people.

I Campi

I Campi is a beautiful, recently refurbished, villa located 10km from the sea immersed in the wonderful countryside of the Maremma Toscana, just a short drive from Capalbio.

La Tavena

La Tavena is a wonderful farmhouse in the midst of a large 650 hectare estate that sits on top of a small hillside, hence enjoying many different panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. To the north, Siena can be seen clearly across the valley to a hilltop in the distance - it is only a short drive away.

Blue Deer - San Lorenzo Sea Lodge

In their professional lives they were born into the frenetic and jet-setting world of high fashion. Then one day, Giorgia and Stefano Barbini simply made the decision to leave the whole rat race behind. They were so struck by the power of this experience that they developed their own signature holiday concept: privacy and authenticity in the high mountains and on the high seas − two places on our planet where time stands still. The Barbinis expressly designed their twin San Lorenzo Lodges, the White Deer and the Blue Deer, as deluxe yet wholly private havens far removed from the hustle and bustle of our modern world.

All roads lead to Maremma Tuscany

Tuscany Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Tuscany is a legendary region in central Italy that stretches from the Apennine Mountains to the west coast, meandering through endless vineyards, medieval towns and the impossibly beautiful cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa. In today’s modern world, defined by alarm clocks, deadlines and traffic jams, Tuscany lures travelers with the promise of a warmer, gentler way of living. Here, high art mingles deliciously with warm sunshine and fragrant wine. History seeps through the cobblestones and small occasions are transformed into the greatest of pleasures. Around six hundred years ago, Tuscany changed the world forever when economic, cultural and political forces collided, sparking the Renaissance. It was a new way of thought in which art and education were highly prized and the search for happiness, a noble goal. Although the world has changed much since then, Tuscany’s values hold firm and visitors to this region can happily spend days and weeks slowly rediscovering them.

Tuscany's Dolce Vita

Tuscany offers a "dolce vita" mix of hearty cuisine, fascinating history, and gentle beauty. First we'll learn about the original Tuscans — the ancient Etruscans — at Volterra's Etruscan Museum, then we'll tour a hill town that was important to both the Etruscans and the Romans, head into the woods for a truffle hunt, eat slow food Italian-style during Sunday lunch in Chiusure, and finish in Montepulciano, where we'll get passionate about the local wine.
