Weekly Photo Challenge: Walls – Part 2

villa14

For one of the weeks of our vacation in Italy, our party of eight stayed in a stone farmhouse villa in the Tuscan region near Siena and Florence. It is known by the Italians as an Agriturismo.

Located in the province of Arezzo, this ancient agriturismo, the Scarpellino, had been renovated in 2005. All of its original architectural details were restored.

I loved how warm and homey the villa felt with all of its stone walls, inside and out.

I also loved where it was situated, nestled in the middle of vineyards and olive trees.
Complete privacy was a given.

Here are some inside shots:

 Perhaps it is my “inner cavewoman” that likes the atmosphere stone walls create.
