Fattoria di larniano villa in Tuscany

On my trip in Tuscany, I stayed at
Fattoria Di Larniano, which made me fall in love with Tuscany right away. This beautiful farmhouse villa is on a large estate with vineyards and olive trees, 3 miles from San Gimignano. Fattoria Di Larniano has a swimming pool, parking spaces with sun terrace.  

The village of Larniano, in ancient times also called "Lariniano", is mentioned in a document of Volterra from 906 even if we don't have any definite historic accounts until the 13th century. It is mentioned in an ecclesiastic document (the Volterrian synod) from 1356, and even before that in another one from 1216. It was part of the plover of Cellori until 1782, the year in which San Gimignano was dismembered by the diocese of Volterra.

The Ghost
by Kasbah Mod
Inside, this typewriter is a Smith-Corona 5-Series, a line widely celebrated for its quietness and low finger-fatigue—plus a special translucent roller. Outside, its body is custom-plated with hot-rod-quality chrome, a material Smith-Corona never saw coming. The Ghost’s surface reflects its surroundings, a haunting reminder of the 5-series’ iconic form and of a crucial part of any good writing.

The Smith Corona 4-Bank, introduced in 1924, was the first mainstream, widely promoted 4-bank typewriter. It is an industrial design classic and legend suggests that the world's typewriting community grew 50 times in population after the Corona's 4-Bank's elegant introduction. This classic edition features a glossy green paint job.
