After a long drive with some difficulties with our sat nav ( Tom Tom ) we are now settled into a good sized apartment in the wall of the Old Town of Barberino Val d' Elsa in Tuscany about 30 minutes south of Florence.
The village is staging it's yearly flower festival - more like a town fete - this weekend on the street that runs through the old town and right past our front door.
Our apartment is within these old town walls.
That's it the second door down on the right.
No, not this one but isn't it pretty?
There's an Aussie browsing along the old street.
We have two bedrooms with huge king sized beds, two bathrooms with shower and toilet, a good sized living room and a tiny but serviceable kitchen.
A good old home cooked stew is bubbling on the stove as we are craving some vegetables and home style cooking.
Rest day today.
