As soon as I got off the plane, Sicily’s warm, scented air assailed my senses in a way that only the Mediterranean can. The island has something for everyone – and the warm climate, great […]

We’re crossing the Val di Merse in the early warmth of a new summer that adds a touch of magic to tranquil fields where red poppies and golden sheaves add splashes of colour. A mystical silence reigns here in the south west of Siena, where the pace of life follows the rhythm of the seasons […]
