hello snow

On Sunday 19th December, we picked up a new rental car, said goodbye to our apartment in Rome and hit the road for the snow. Poor Annick had managed to pick up a bug from Mila at our last dinner with them on the Friday and had a bucket on her knee the entire 7 hour journey to our accommodation in San Vito, 13km south of Cortina in the Italian Dolomites.

Amazingly, the snow started to appear on the sides of the roads just south of Florence. We made good time and arrived in San Vito around 7.30pm

Our apartment is directly above the Panificio Fiori, the excellent local baker and next door to the supermarket. It's large with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms....(3 open shutters on first floor are ours, opening onto balcony)

But best of all, it is directly across the road from the park and childrens' playground and the view from our balcony is incredible (panorama looking from L to R, up and down the main street):

....and the kids wasted no time getting into it.....
