We do love snow. We love it, indeed. But since we travel everyday to give the best service around Europe, we have fallen in love with many locations which give their best during the warm season.
In our blog we already spent some words on beautiful Tuscany, a land of smooth hills and sweet valleys which is home to some of the best expressions of italian cuisine, touristic locations, arts and panoramas.
At the same time, we remain always astonished by the beauty of the southern France, where a rich and historic land meets some of the most famous shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Another location where we love to work is the area of Marbella and Malaga, where the warmth of the sun unleashes the spicy and folkloristic Spanish heritage.
Summer is also the perfect season to visit European capital cities: we feel at home in Rome, Berlin, Paris and Madrid, where we daily deliver our service to our customers, delivering the best luxury and sports cars at their hotel or at the airport.
If you plan a trip in one of these locations, or anywhere in Europe, contact us and benefit of our Summer 2017 Early Bird Booking opportunities: you will have the chance to choose the car you love, and rent it at the best price!
A cistercian monastery found in the valley of the river Merce, the Abbey of San Galgano in the tuscanian province of Siena is a breathtaking, mystic place. The roofless walls of the Gothic style 13th-century Abbey church still stand tall above the visitor, and still remember the faith and industry of the local inhabitants which started building them around 1220 to remember the Catholic Saint Galgano Guidotti (San Galgano, in Italian), who lived as a hermit and died in the nearby town of Chiusdino.
Formerly a ruthless knight in its early life, Galgano – according to the myth – had a vision about Archangel Michael, the Apostles and the Creator himself. Reading this as a sign, Galgano decided to plant a cross, but having no chance to build a wood cross, planted its sword in the ground. The stone yielded like butter, then became rock again, and noone could ever remove the cross from that point. It is said that the episode inspired the very similar episode in the Arthurian mythology. Myth or not, you can still see the sword planted in the ground in the nearby Montesiepi Chapel.

Simply one of the most beautiful and renowned regions of Italy, Chianti Valley – Valle del Chianti, in Italian – attracts every year thousands of visitors from all around the world. The landscape is the one you can think – or dream – when you think about Tuscany, with its gentle hills kissed by the sun, wide fields of vineyards and olive groves, history-rich stone buildings and castle ruins. So beautiful you will think to live inside a postcard or a photography.
The Valley, and the region that takes the name from it, extends itself between two of the most typical and beautiful Tuscany’s locations: the cities of Siena and Florence. In between these two charming cities you can find plenty of small, rural villages built on the rocks or on the top of green hills surrounded by cypresses, and have the chance to taste some of the best examples of italian food – most typically t-bone steaks and selections of cheese – and some of the greatest products of the Italian wine industry.

When you think about Tuscany, it’s very probable that you imagine green and golden hills, covered by vineyards, and long, winding roads closed between two lines of tall and pointy cypresses. Maybe you don’t know, but if you have imagined the scene, you have just seen the Orcia Valley, Val d’Orcia in Italian. Continue reading
