As I’m writing this post, I’ve basically just come back from our Tuscany holiday and have found the very first moment to sit down and go through an endless list of photos, which has made me very nostalgic already!
This year we had two spare weeks at the very end of August, and after dreaming about the sea all Summer long, we decided to dedicate them to visiting somewhere new, exploring and, most importantly, find our way to the beach and the whole sand-between-my-toes and sunbathing things we were so jelous of when browsing through Instagram these last months. After pondering where we should have gone, we decided, although the plan of discovering some places far away sounded very appealing, we wanted to keep appreciating the amazing country we live in and explore somewhere new right here in Italy instead.
People would travel from the most distant places to have a peek of beautiful Tuscany, and we’re so lucky to be only four hours of car journey from it. It totally felt a bit wrong that we hadn’t give it a chance just yet! But I’ll be completely honest: as much as I was excited for this holiday to begin, I wasn’t expecting to find anything like this in the slightest…
Tuscany is special. From the very first minute we were there, we knew there was something different and charming in everything. Our plans were to road trip it as much as we could so that we’d be able to find some nice wild coves and enjoy the oh-so-coveted time at the beach. And when road tripping Tuscany, you won’t only find yourself in front of the most beautiful crystal clear water and cosy coves of soft white sand… We were surprised by how picturesque the countryside landscapes we found ourselves in front of basically everyday were, how we could stop countless times to take pictures at the fields or at the horses because we couldn’t help but stop and admire them.
And then, when, after the longest hike, you find that beach you were looking for, it’s all sort of magical, with the water so clear you can see everything on the seabed, and behind you the woods and the trees surrounding everything you can see.
These pictures are actually from this place called Rocchette, all surrounded by those typical red rocks. The water there was always as blue and clear as it can be, and swimming in it was as dreamy as it sounds! Totally one of our favourites!
Do stay tuned for more pictures from the seaside and for a little Tuscany guide with the upcoming posts! x
