Villa Conti, Fauglia, Pisa, Tuscany, Italy

Perched on high ground south of Pisa in the town of Fauglia, the Villa Conti is a beautifully restored villa that is now a hotel and restaurant.

Location, location, location.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and tour of the property by the generous and gracious owners, Nevio and Doris. Nevio was quite a friendly character, joined us at table, and insisted on sharing a round of shots after lunch. Wimp that I am, I passed on both the shots and the lemoncello.

From the tower room atop the hotel, a beautiful 360-degree view is available. The mountains in the distance are the group that separates the Pisa and Lucca areas.

Nearby, the town of Lorenzana basks in the warm spring sunshine.

Olive trees and other crops begin another season of growth in the rich farmland of Tuscany.
