A Lovely Parting Gift

On our last morning at Villa Abbazia, when we checked out after breakfast to head to Venice for our last day in the Veneto, we were given TWO lovely gifts. Everyone gets this beautiful book about the Treviso provence.

I am determined to spend a day in this town during my visit to Venice in the spring. Besides the food and markets, I want to see the charming canals and old water wheels!

The second gift (everyone does NOT get this, but the owners were so happy with my slideshow of the property, and touched that I painted a watercolor of our view from the terrace) is a beautiful watercolor print, featuring Treviso radicchio, I hope to frame soon and hang in our dining room.

I hope to soon have a few of my own watercolors to share of Villa Abbazia.

Palma, how lovely of them to present you with that watercolor! You have a knack for making friends!

Treviso is great. You can actually see fish swimming in the canals. Great food and lots of shopping! I still dream of the crespelle con radicchio I ate there on a bitterly cold November afternoon. I am hoping to replicate that lunch this winter.

Oh, Treviso had a prosecco tasting room! Hoping to find that again as well.
