I am a Lucky Girl

posted in: Uncategorized | 14

When I had made the decision to move to Florence, Italy I set out to find my “perfect” new home.

i knew exactly what area I wanted to live since I spent sometime here last year and that is

a big hurdle conquered. There are a few 

Short and long term rental agencies in Florence and I searched endlessly determined I would find the

right place. After hitting  a dead end and also I was not happy with the lack off

quick response from any of these companies.

I some how stumbled on the web site of TUSCAN FEELING. I liked the ease of their web site 

right away and there was an apartment in the exact neighborhood I wanted to live. It also

had the two bedrooms and baths I wanted. Within a matters of days I had additional pictures 

that I had requested and we finalized the lease.  These are niceest people and most

professional to work with.  What a lucky girl I am!

After being here a couple of weeks I had the great pleasure of meeting the couple 

who own the apartment. I must say again what a lucky girl I am.

not only did I find my “perfect” place but made new friends. I had a wonderful lunch 

with Rita, her lovely mother and husband Fulvio.  To make things even better they

invited me to have a Florentine home cooked meal at Rita’s mothers house

the following week.


They invited two family friends and The cute young man on the left was our translator .


Exactly what I had hoped for.  


Rita is as nice as she is pretty.


Emma their daughter is a little doll and a daddy’s girl. This was a wonderful evening.

I am a lucky girl.

When I was here last fall I decided I needed an Italian haircut and had read about


On a blog from my favorite blogger


I made an appointment with Favio the owner and got my best haircut ever!


 This is when I realized I could l move to Florence.

I was here two weeks and went back to Favio and got that same great haircut.


Yes I am a very lucky girl.
