E’ stato davvero un weekend all’insegna della semplicità, alla scoperta della natura e degli animali..una vera e propria Pinktrotters’ Farm!
E poi, con cani, gatti, cavalli e pecore liberi intorno a noi, come potevamo non abbandonare la nostra postazione sul lettino a prendere il sole per imparare a montare un Knabstrupper a pelo?! (sì, non sono caduta, miracolosamente: devo essere stata Lady Oscar in una vita passata!)
Ci è talmente piaciuto che il giorno dopo abbiamo replicato, optandoo per un ancora più bucolico pic-nic nel prato: cestino di “provviste a km 0” preparato al chiosco, tovaglia a scacchi, mini abbuffata al sole e poi libretto all’ombra dell’ulivo: se non è rigenerante questo!
La prossima volta si prova anche il pranzo seduti nella veranda vista colline romane, sapevatelo.
Ecco cosa ne è stato delle mie.
Friday again: time to leave behind another week full of meetings and conf calls (and gym, and cinema, and dinners, and house party…you should already know that I never stop!) and leave again. Let a new Pinktrotters’ summer weekend start!
Crossing Milano-Roma with the new Ford Eco Sport. On board 4 girls that at the beginning know very little of each other and that at the end of the weekend will go back home each one with 3 new friends, as claimed by the perfect Pinktrotters’ ethos.
Destination of this new and all italian glam escape? Roma, or better, its countryside.
It was really a weekend based on simplicity, at the discovery of nature and animals..a real Pinktrotters’ Farm!
Starting from waking up with horses pasturing in the garden and having breakfast by the swimming pool with cherries and mulberries, caught directly from the tree (first discovery of the weekend: I admit that up to saturday I had totally ignord that mulberrie were dak fruits, similar to blackberries!).
Another, super appreciated, discovery, was the Agriturismo La Fattoria di Pacifico, in Formello.
In the kiosk area, “aperi-pranzo” (don’t call it brunch, please, it would be a serious offense to the regenerating rural envirinment) with fresh ricotta with strawberries and fruit salad, cheese coming from the factory close-by (don’t say it’s not a km 0!) sided by honey and homemade pear jam, ham, sandwiches…and a delicious licorice icecream: there couldn’t have been a better meal for the Pinktrotters!
We liked it so much that we went backthere on Sunday as well, choosing an even more bucolic picnic on the grass: basket of “km 0 provisions” prepared at the kiosk, red and white table cloth, little bing in the sun and then a good book in the shadow of the olive tree: tell me if it’s not regenerating!
Next time, we need to try also the lunch seated in the terrace, with the great view on Roman hills. Take a note.
Going back to the findings of the weekend, new basics on horses learnt during the horse show at Piazza di Siena: seated on the bleachers to watchTrofeo Loro Piana, between one selfie and another, we even learnt what the word barrage means!
Of course there was also a “fashion” discovery (even if always “ecologic”) during this bucolic weekend! Silvia Massacesi‘s studio and her crok bags. I immediately fell in love with them: my favourite? the one with LIGHT BLUE inlays, of course.
Have a look to what happened to mine.
A special thank to Martina of Tacchi a Cavallo, perfect landlady and planner of our trip. See you at next glam escape!
