Overlooking the Valley


Photographer Unknown, (Overlooking the Valley)

“At Bramasole, the first secret spot that draws me outside is a stump and board bench on a high terrace overlooking the lake and valley. Before I sit down, I must bang the board against a tree to knock off the ants. Then I’m happy. With a stunted oak tree for sherlter and a never-ending view, I am hidden.”

-Frances Mayes, Bringing Tuscany Home
