|Villa Coeur du Luberon is located within a short walking distance of the village of Lourmarin in the hills of the Provence region. Albert Camus, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature lived and wrote here, and is buried in the Lourmarin cemetary. The village is nestled between vineyards, olive groves and almond trees with clean air and a gentle serene Proven¨al ambience. The area offers opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, tennis, mountain biking or if you prefer, a Friday morning market. There are numerous cafˇ terraces, boutiques and restaurants. The villa itself has a beautiful covered ground floor terrace with a second terrace off the master bedroom.||Denise is our representative in Rome, and does a fabulous job of managing a variety of wonderful properties there. Born and raised in Brazil, she moved to Italy nineteen years ago. She's always loved to travel so immediately went to work for an apartment rental agency in Venice where she learned the trade. At a Christmas party she met her fiancˇ Pietro, the relative of a colleague. Making the move to Rome seven years ago, she has fallen in love with the City of Fountains. She and Pietro are planning a spring wedding in the countryside outside Rome where her in-laws have a small estate. Her bright personality goes with her red hair to make her a star in your next travel memories.|
3 Tbsp olive oil
Heat 1 Tbsp of olive
oil in large cast-iron casserole. Add onions, ham, garlic, and bay leaf.
Cover and cook on low heat, stirring occasionally, until cooked down and
very wet, about 1 1/4 hours. Uncover and remove from heat. Working in
batches, season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and lightly dust
with flour, tapping off any excess.
Carefully ignite the
mixture and when the flames subside add the water and bring to a boil,
scraping up any browned bits stuck to the skillet. Add tomatoes and cook,
stirring, until thick and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in cream,
season with salt and pepper and pour over the chicken.
Seventeen boroughs or
districts within Siena are each represented by a horse and rider. Jockeys
are dressed in traditional costume and compete for a painted silk drape.
Preceded by a picturesque parade coming from the Government Palace
courtyard and entering the Campo, you see the splendid costumes of each
jockey as they wave flags and move slowly around the track to the sound of
drums. The race itself is so exciting - to be immersed in the crowd all
cheering and rooting for their champion, the horses and riders speeding
around the track. It's the making of an unforgettable memory.
