Lost in Translation: why one weekend in Florence just isn’t enough

Mark Kebble, editor of Richmond Resident, was whisked off by Tuscany Now & More to experience one of the companies newest villas, La Tegolaia.

Kebble’s voice, compelling and humorous, invites the readers to join him on his adventure across the rolling hill of Tuscany. Along his journey he shares with us one of Tuscany Now & More’s most exciting and romantic experiences, the Gondola Ride on the Arno. This special experience is perfect for those interested in hearing the history of Florence from another prespective, and as Kebble mentions “it was fascinating to learn about the history of the Arno River, from WWII attacks to famous film stars plying their trade, and to have monuments and places of interest pointed out to us in the walk that followed”. 

The journey continues, moving away from the centre of Florence and into the surrounding hills. Arriving at the villa Kebble goes on to describe the many qualities and charm,

“La Tegolaia has an old world charm with endless doors leading to yet another room… As well as the seven bedrooms, there are eight bathrooms, a separate pool house, dining room, sitting room, kitchenette and al fresco dining areas, which in itself leads to a world of cypress and olive trees, deckchairs, swimming pool and more” 

With that said, who could resist such a warm and welcoming atmosphere?
