As we see the days of June beginning to vanish, many of us have a few extra weeks to jump on a plane and do something out of the ordinary.
Here are a couple of fun and interesting things to do while on a trip (if you happen to be visiting any of our favourite spots), and we hope you will also take a look at some dream properties for your second home wherever you are!
Chianti Region, Italy
What can we say about Italy? The decadent food, the amazing wine, the wonderful cycling, the gorgeous architecture, the unbelievable scenery, the food, and the wine. …
Greve, as always, hosts The Chianti Classico Wine Festival the 10 -13 September this year. The idea is that you buy a wine glass from the Segretaria and are then free to taste any and all wines offered at the stands. It is an incredibly popular event in the region.
If you are in Tuscany we highly recommend you stop by to see Il Borgo di Villa Bossi Pucci our latest dream property overseas and a development that we all think is magnificent.
The famous “Golden Mile” of nightclubs, shopping and estates will certainly keep one busy. But for “downtime” after “nightime” the beaches are very cool.
From July 14-Aug 20, the area will be jumping. The Starlight Festival is now established as one of the most important annual social and entertainment events in Spain.
The first use of the former quarry site, situated above Marbella, was in 1983. Alfonso Hohenlohe, who founded the Marbella Club hotel, and singers Julio Iglesias and Plácido Domingo, decided to create the Cantera de Marbella open-air auditorium, and to found an internationally-renowned music festival. The stage is surrounded by 60 metre-high rock walls, which creates an interesting, intimate atmosphere, like a secret, hidden venue beneath the stars.
So if you can make it, here is the link:
Perhaps owning in Marbella may be an option after you spend some time in this magical place. Please take a moment to look at the opportunity to own a second home at the impressive Finca Cortesin.
