Hi, welcome back to part III of our Italy tour :) After our visit to the Leonardo Museum, I am now going to show you the beautiful place in the countryside of Vinci, where we were staying.

Agriturismo Tenuta le Colonie

"Tenuta le Colonie" is a magical oasis surrounded by lovely vineyards and the hilly landscape of Tuscany. The farmhouse with six autonomous apartments, also called colonies, is only two kilometers away of the historic center of Vinci, where Leonardo da Vinci came from.

Let's start our tour with a hike from Vinci to our lovely farmhouse, enjoying the picturesque landscape. It is about a thirty minutes walk from the city center to Le Colonie.

Arriving at Le Colonie. Our apartment (colony) was on the second floor, on the left, where the two windows are open.

Here is the gorgeous view from our romantic bedroom window :P There was also an orchestra of cicadas outside. Did you know that male cicadas produce a vibrating, very loud, monotonous sound to attract female mates and some cicadas can even reach a level of up to 120 dB?

And finally a glimpse into our romantic bedroom :P of Colonia 4. Apartment 4 consisted of a small kitchen (our living and second bedroom), a bathroom and this larger bedroom with a queen-size bed for Xena and me :P
