BEFORE we get cracking with today’s post, I just want to take a moment to say I’m sorry…
That my blog posts have been a bit sporadic of late.
I’m a poorly lady you see at the moment, having had flu for the last week or so, so bar on odd post, I’ve spent most of my time lying in bed or watching endless rounds of children’s TV with little Elsie, who’s been pretty poorly too.
Anyhow, I’m trying my best to do what I can, but there’s no doubt that my work has suffered of late. So thank you for being patient and sticking with me. I promise normal, regular service will resume shortly.
Annnnd…so, with that in mind, let’s crack on with today’s post!
Because I do have a super post to share with you today. (Hell yeah!) One that’s certainly putting a big smile on my very grotty face, as I type.
This is the first instalment of our recent family holiday to Italy with the brilliant Italian accommodation experts, Bookings For You.
And is all about our stunning accommodation – a beautiful, modern and contemporary Italian 3 bedroom villa situated on the east bank of Lake Maggiore.
As holiday accommodation goes, let me tell you, this villa is by far, the most stunning place I have ever stayed in. For the views alone, I would have happily stayed!
I mean, just imagine, lying in bed and looking at this…
Because this is how I woke up in the mornings and this is what we all saw, every single day, from one of three lake facing terraces, that this stunning villa offers.
Here’s some more shots of the lake view, and I make absolutely no apologies for them. Because a view this spectacular has to be shared…
(The sunsets were particularly breathtaking…)
My photos don’t even do the beautiful view justice but you get the picture!
Just. Seriously. Beautiful.
The best view I’ve ever seen. In my life. And one I’ll never forget.
Tucked up high in the mountains, staying in this fabulous villa, was a little bit like being in an Italian version of Heidi.
By day, the only sounds I could hear were birds chirping, donkey bells ringing and water running down a tiny stream. And by night, nothing!
It was absolute bliss. A real slice of Italian heaven indeed.
Villa Caruso as it is lovingly called, is a stunning property.
And inside, had absolutely everything we needed as a family – for myself, Jamie, Elsie and my Dad and Step Mum who came with us – as well as being simply but tastefully decorated.
