Relaxing at Villa Baggine
Posted on September 19, 2011
While we were visiting Lucca, Italy we stayed at Villa Baggine.
Villa Baggine is located in San Columbano right above Lucca, Italy where you have a magnificent view.
Flavia was our host along with her sons Francesco and Philippo. The grounds are absolutely beautiful.
I caught a quick shot of Giulia’s dresses drying on the line with the amazing view behind them.
We coordinated with Flavia to have meals prepared at the Villa on certain nights. Flavia is an amazing cook! The food was seriously delicious and always set with beautiful linens and flowers from her garden.
As you can see our table always had the best view and we soaked up every bit of it.
We ate outside and enjoyed the outdoors while the kids ran around on the lawn. They were playing hide and seek and I couldn’t get the both of them in a shot for the life of me.
The dinners were wonderful and always presented so beautifully. Francesco, Flavia’s son would bring the food from the main house. We always enjoyed our conversations with Francesco – he’s an absolute delight!
Wine and appetizers kicked off our evenings.
The simplest things tasted so good. The ingredients were so fresh.
One of my favorite dishes that I’ve been making is the chicken with tomatoes and capers. (recipe coming soon!
The desserts were always such a treat and served with Vin Santo!
Everything was always so fresh and we enjoyed every last bite.
We truly fell in love with Villa Baggine and the entire family!
