il borro I italy

A few springs ago, I jetted off to Italy to shoot at the Il Borro estate in Tuscany.  That sounds so amazing and it really was a dream come true!.  Il Borro is a beautiful medieval village that dates back to 1254, by conservative estimates, and was the home to many prominent families over the centuries.  Ferruccio Feragamo purchased the estate in the 1980's and has been bringing it back to it's former glory as a destination.  This makes me so happy because history is being preserved for the future.

Il Borro has lovely accommodations, delicious restaurants, a spa and a gorgeous winery and most importantly . . . horses!   I hope you enjoy a little glimpse of this lovely estate . . .

I joked on Facebook that I have almost run out of the best aged balsamic vinegar and so I decided to go to Italy tomorrow.  Some thought I was joking but I really am headed out tomorrow for a dream come true shoot at Il Borro, a luxury Relais & Chateaux property in the hills of Tuscany!  My dear friend Krista is coming from Scotland to assist for the shoot and then we are actually going to have a real holiday.  It has been so long since I have had true rest.  I can’t wait to taste the organic olive oil on the farm we are staying and enjoy all the amenities at Il Borro too.  I will be in Firenze for Easter and for a couple of days afterwards – it will be a time for soaking up art and amazing architecture, taking walks down long country roads and drinking wine & eating local food.  Here is a photo from my last trip to Italy.  Arrivederci!
