A Postcard From Tuscany

view from the bathroom window

I don´t know what it is with the Villa Albertina. Perhaps it is the well proportioned airy rooms. The arcade which provide welcome shade on hot summer days. The protective layer of vines on the venerable facade. The outdoor areas with room for ball games, sunbathing, swimming, a swing, and a clothes line for wet towels.
