Aforeigner Abroad in Barbialla

Last April, we had the opportunity to welcome two awesome travel bloggers: Meeting Lindsay and Alexis left us the feeling that we really have no excuse: every goal is possible, when you want to achieve it. 
That's the (amazing) result of their visit:…/Magic-Tuscan-Farmhouse-S…
Thank you from the heart, aforeigner.abroad and good luck with your project. <3



We know that in Barbialla you can get easily distracted; wild boars, deer, porcupines, hedgehogs, and whatnot keep showing up and being attention magnets, caring little for our safety. However, it doesn't matter if you are driving, biking, walking, or crawling....always mind the ditch!!



Francesco took this picture in May, as he was working on one of the antennas that keep the internet connection up and running. It was a cool, sunny day, and the silence was absolute. This land has the power of reconnecting you to your peaceful inner self in an instant.

It's summer again!


Summer in Barbialla means many things, but one of them is certainly jam! After two very dry years, we finally had the perfect spring, and the fruit trees and bushes are loaded with yummy produce. Ilaria is not wasting time transforming them into delicious spreads. Here is a strawberry-lemon in the making...



The once-in-10-year snowstorm that passed over the farm last winter claimed a victim: the straw cover of the pergola of the swimming pool in Brentina collapsed under the weight. We just re-built a new cover and the pergola is ready to shade you from the bright sun of Tuscany. Thanks Marco for your help and company!
