Discover Tuscany!, Issue #023-- "Bear" Issue!
December 30, 2007

Discover Tuscany! is a FREE occasional Newsletter dedicated to helping you get the best from your holiday in Tuscany.

Great steaming piles of it.
They say it’s totally normal of course. Santa popped down our chimney this year and dropped off a cute, little, puppy. Resembles a snowball shaped, poo machine at the moment but a Google search has revealed it is a Maremmano, a type of sheepdog once used to protect the flocks from bears and wolves. Seems more like a cross between a polar bear and a Shetland pony if you ask me. And I’m now one of its flock. That’s me sorted.

A belated Merry Christmas, by the way. Haven’t heard from you for a while. Hope you’re all well.

Just thought, as 2007 is nearly gone, I’d drop you a note to let you know what’s been going on in Rent a Villa in Tuscany land.

Thanks for subscribing

- New Villas – If you haven’t been on the site for a while, we’ve added lots of great new properties. Stylish décor, lots of facilities. Our Villas and Farmhouses page is now split into different sections to help you plan the perfect holiday.

- Christmas Pressie - Oops! Forgot your Christmas pressie again. To make up, I’d like to give you a crate of wine. If you book any of our properties before 15 Jan. it will be waiting for you in your villa when you arrive on you holidays. Book quick before I stop feeling generous.

- New Routes – Good old Ryanair are adding new routes all the time. Edinburgh – Pisa. Stansted – Perugia to name but two. To find the best flight deals we use a site called Dohop try it and save.

- Buy a Villa - Over the years we’ve helped a few of you buy your own villa in Tuscany (in fact, some are available for rent on the site - eg Villa Olivo). This year we’ve teamed up with local estate agent Riccardo Romolini (as seen on UK TV) to offer Tuscan properties for sale. Riccardo has a wide range of properties of all types, he really knows what us foreigners are looking for. Read about him, read what his clients say about him, contact him. Why wait? Make 2008 the year you buy your very own dream home in Tuscany .

- Tuscan Art -Budget can’t stretch to actually buying your dream home. Then the next best thing is to hang a painting of it on your living room wall. Our new Tuscan Art page has original paintings, fine art prints and photography. Prices to suit all budgets. A great gift for a loved one to remind them of their Tuscan holiday.

Wishing you all a peaceful, healthy & happy 2008. Look out for our soon to be launched luxury villa site. We’ll drop you a note when it’s up and running.
