An Italian Respite: White Lamia

_DSC0173 by laurasisti.

I have said it a million times, and will probably continue to do so, but my favorite thing about blogging is the ability to connect with so many people with similar interests. This week, my wonderful reader, Laura e-mailed me all the way from Milan to share her gorgeous holiday home with me. The home is in the Apulia region of Italy, and is just 20 minutes from the Adriatic Coast. It has also been featured in Casa D’ Italia Magazine.

The setting is positively idyllic, nestled within miles of olive groves, pomegranate, fig, and almond trees. Just imagine how wonderful the air must smell! The home was recently renovated but maintains its original rustic charm, typical of the region with white-washed walls and barrel-vaulted ceilings.

I think I might need an Italian Holiday Home. And, of course a Cockapoo. A puppy and a holiday home, I am a simple girl, really.
