My favourite place for a morning walk is down along the beach in Villanova. It is just a few minutes from the picture perfect town of Ostuni and I was recently struck by the huge difference between what’s there in August for the holidaymakers and how it looks for us in January.
Here we are early on a sunny summer morning, beach-goers have yet to arrive.
Now take a look at the same beach in winter, when I have it all to myself.
There’s a house along the path at Gorgognolo, that looks very different in summer in winter too.
I treasure my winter walks in Villanova, after you’ve gone, when I have paradise all to myself, but I’ve got to get up very early in summer to achieve that!
