This is the Arno, Santo Spirito and the ‘Beach’.

Ok, so this is the big place round here and we have been there today in nearly 40 degree heat but Florence still packs a punch in stunning visual sights.  Here are a couple of photos to keep you interested in our wonderful blog.  Also filling in for the fact we have had a lot of guests recently and I have not had time to write a fuller blog for this week.  Please keep sending me encouraging comments!!

OK……. I suppose you want the Ponte Vecchio as well don’t you?

Finally a competition.  Is it Bill or Ben or Darren?  Win a  free Mars bar for the first correct answer, to be published on the blog!!! (Though you will have to travel to Italy to collect it).

Who is it on the terrace?


  1. Hi there

    I presume it must be Darren unless you are setting the guests to work for you!!! Or is it the chainsaw gang? It’s a very expensive Mars bar I think!

    Lovely to see Florence again, it was 40 degrees when I visited!

    Pleased to hear you have had many guests staying, you’ll need a holiday after this!

    Looking forward to seeing you soon.

  2. Hi Malcolm and Darren

    Having finally worked out how to use the blog (I think) and identified the mystery gardener as very obviously Ben, I hereby claim my Mars bar. I have of course not seen all the marvelous pictures before and am on envy overdrive, particularly about the Puccini festival.
    You’ve done a fantastic job on the house/apartments – I’d only seen the early pictures previously – which look very classy.
    Joan loves Italy and the look of the area around you and wants to see about coming over for a few days next year. I’ll read you blog again when we get back from Kenya to see what September is like weatherwise.
    See you soon

  4. I am so sorry Dan but the Mars bar goes elsewhere, but thanks very much for finding us and welcome to the Casa Verde blog, please visit us again. We would be delighted to show you the Puccini festival too! Malcolm
