Greetings from Querceto, a tiny, ancient village in Tuscany in Italy. The Castello
A narrow, winding road climbs steadily up the hill, sometimes so steep that our little Toyota even bothers in the first gear. We live in a beautifully restored old mansion, directly opposite the church. Apart from a small restaurant and an even smaller bodega, there is nothing here. In the evening, people are sitting at the door, drinking a glass of wine, talking or making music. Soooooo relaxing!
Yes, there is a swimming pool! Ten minutes on foot, in the middle of the forest, not visible from the street. The huge property belongs to a rich family from Florence, who has restored everything with much love (and money) and has built this swimming pool in a small side valley. It is fed from a source and makes a very neat impression.
Our stay here is a birthday present from Marjorie to me. We spend a week reading, writing, hiking, swimming and enjoying the excellent wine. The wine grows further down the hillside in the private fields of the Ginori Lisci family. Our favorite is a Merlot with the melodious name “Campordigno”.
We often drove past Pisa. Now we have finally looked at the tower.
