The Little Chapel at Il Borgo

Yesterday I had an email conversation with our host, Alessandro's, brother named Claudio. Claudio is a painter, and I asked if he had ever painted this little chapel. It was the family chapel, back years ago when the whole Il Borgo estate was owned by one family. A lane of mature cypress trees leads to it from one of the main houses. I spent time every morning, of both my visits, leaning against one of the trees, gazing at that chapel, listening to the wind in the tops of the trees, feeling hushed, grateful, calm. I still return there mentally ALL the time. The photos are those I (or Mom) took on both of our trips.

Oh I am just in awe and oh so jealous of this. I just feel I have to get there. It looks so.... I can't even come up with a word that works this is just so relaxing and just to be there is what I am hoping for.
