On a crisp and sunny day in November Mojo takes a trip to Pisa for some sightseeing and a fine lunch!
A great day’s walk along the Cinque Terre from Monterosso to Vernazza , lunch at Ristorante Belforte and then onward to Corniglia for a gelato and the train to Manarola. Mojo was, of course, admired by huge numbers of people and loved checking out the lucertole, tasting the fish antipasti and licking the gelati! Then back home to Casa Glyn for some fun in the hot tub!
Mojo recently went travelling to Southern Tuscany where she was delighted to visit Villa Caselvecchio – soon to be added to Merrion’s portfolio. Situated between Siena and Grosseto this gorgeous villa enjoys stunning views, a pool to die for and glorious al fresco dining spots.
Mojo particularly enjoyed exploring the property with the charming owner and highly recommends Caselvecchio to prospective clients!
A glorious day from Cadimare across the Golf of Poets, past Portovenere and then along the magnificent coastline of the Cinque Terre. Mojo had a few dips in the clear blue Mediterranean (much to her disgust as not a water baby!) and gazed to the terra firma where she wished to be!
As the day went on, however, Mojo became more accustomed to life on the ocean but was very happy to return to her home at Casa Glyn in the hills above Fivizzano!
Mojo was commissioned recently to go on a photo shoot to 3 villas within the Merrion Charles portfolio. First stop was Villa Casanuova near San Casciano dei Bagni and then Podere Sant Adele near Cetona where Mojo assisted with everything from acting as stylist to arranging the garden and even taking a few shots herself!
It was like arriving with the Queen or a top VIP filmstar as we walked up the steps with Mojo into the foyer of world-renowned Hotel Cipriani!
The reception MoJo received will remain in my mind forever and certainly that of MoJo! Plenty of tummy rubs by the charming staff were enjoyed by MoJo and then a call early evening in our bedroom from the kitchen requesting what MoJo would like prepared for her supper!
In our beautiful bedroom MoJo was provided with a gorgeous soft bed, a cuddly toy and even a food bowl with her name inscribed on it!
After a good night’s sleep MoJo checked out the lovely gardens and surroundings of Hotel Cipriani and enjoyed a few photo shoots as only a VIP would in such a fabled destination as the Cipriani!
She simply can’t wait to return…… and those gorgeous Italian men of course made it even more special for her!
Arguably the most famous, luxurious and renowned hotel in the world , the Cipriani, home to film stars, royalty and all manner of VIPs, is now preparing for the arrival of MoJo!!! Only in Italy could an hotel of such repute and glamour write to MoJo assuring her that she will be very well looked after and how they have already studied her blog!!
So in readiness for her stay at the Cipriani (or Cip as some love to call it!), MoJo is off tomorrow to her beauty parlour so she looks her very best on arrival.
The joys of travelling in Italy with one’s four legged companion are unending…the same cannot be said for many countries around the globe so MoJo has confirmed that Italy is certainly her country of choice when it comes to pampering, good food and gorgeous men!!!!!!!
MoJo is looking forward to writing her report about the Cipriani after her vist later this month. Indeed, MoJo will be one of the very first guests of the 2013 season!
