Here I write my daily reports on our holiday in Tuscany.
We went from Hamburg (14 pm) via Frankfurt to Florence (18.30 pm). At the airport there is a shuttle bus that runs free to car rental companies.
At 21 pm we came to the reception, got our information and were led to our beautiful room.
Heavy thunderstorms still accompany us to sleep. We are happy that we have arrived in the dry.
Our first day of holiday
In absolute silence we waked up rested.
The sky is overcast but luckily it stopped raining. And then the sky is clearing up and we can discover in which beautiful, secluded countryside, we are.

Because today is Sunday and therfore we are pleased to hear that the supermarkets are also open as normal in the near located city, Borgo San Lorenzo.
So we do our first big purchase. The prices are comparable to ours in Germany.

Nachdem wir die Umgebung erkundet haben, genießen wir am Nachmittag den Pool, den wir ganz für uns allein haben.
Second day of holiday
Today, recreation and relaxation was announced. One was Amelie still not back 100% strength, the weather was also not sooo great and on the other relaxing was announced.
Late afternoon we went to Borgo San Lorenzo. Still too early for dinner, but since it was Monday, the restaurants and pizzerias were closed anyway. So we ate a pizza on the hand that we had brought out to us at the bakery and each half a chicken from the supermarket Conad.
Previously, we enjoyed the atmosphere on a small square in Cappucciono and Diet Coke.

Third day of holiday
The market in Borgo San Lorenzo you is not necessarily have to been seen.
Afterwards we drink a Cappoccino on the Piazza and watch people crossing the small square. There is no rush, everything is relaxed, everyone seems to know everyone and a chat facilitates social relations. We spend the afternoon at the pool.
... and then we drive to the Designer Outlet di Barberino, just 15 km from the resort.
It reminds us very of American Outlets.
