Vellano Village

with No Comments


This week I had a wander around the hill-top medieval village of Vellano in Pescia.  Here are some images I captured:

This is part of a panoramic view from the cafe/restaurant Bistrot Vellano.  I highly recommend a visit for refreshments.


Outside this wonderful old church I found a scattering of flower and plant pots. For a moment my mind was adrift in the mixture of smells and colours against the stunning backdrop.







This was the first time I’d ever seen a platted olive tree.



View from the church.


Another, very small, village church.

I knelt before the altar to take this picture of the ceiling. This was a first for me.




I have fallen in love with this old stone basin. It appears to have George cross shields carved into the pattern.

I'm a English photographer and mother living in a quaint medieval village in the hills of Tuscany, Italy. Almost every day I find myself lost in the stunning landscape and architecture of these ancient settlements. I try and portray this beauty through my images, in hope of transporting those browsing to a more peaceful and tranquil place.
