It's not like me



Seldom do I want to go back to places I have been,
no matter how interesting or how beautiful. 


It's because I always want to know what is just around the corner. 



But there is a very special place, hidden in a valley, in the Tuscan countryside, that keeps calling us from year to year.  




It's Relais Sant Elena in Bibbona, Italy. 

Only a few miles south of Livorno and only a few minutes from the Tyrrhinian Sea. 




This beautiful and bountiful breakfast is served every single morning.




Not just one table but several, laden with delicacies.

Everything is super fresh and wholesome.  




I called.  Our suite is available.  




See you there.

Until then, wishing you a great weekend,

Gina

  1. There are very few places that I return to again and again Gina, but there are some. I understand just where you are coming from, if somewhere makes you happy then why not?

    1. Dear Rosemary,
      I was trying to come up with a new plan but when it came right down to it, it had to be, at least a few days,a return visit to Sant'Elena.

  2. Dear Gina,
    it is so nice to dream of far away places, especially if they are as inviting as the Relais Sant Elena.The suite
    you have chosen looks wonderful and the whole place and its surroundings look very tranquil.
    Hugs, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde,
      There is so much to like about Relais Sant;Elena. It's the perfect place. It's beautiful, the food is sensational, the staff is the best we have experienced and Bibbona is surrounded by the most beautiful and historic Etruscan villages.

  3. Like you, I think the world is so big and so wonderful that I want to see as much of it as possible. That said, what a beautiful place in Tuscany to return to again and again. Enjoy!

    1. Hello Lorrie,
      We were trying to plan a different trip. It didn't gel until we included our favorite place. We have visited Europe and Africa more than forty times, yet Sant'Elena always calls.
