In this idyllic Italian adventure, Paul Gervais sells up and quits his native land to buy a renaissance Tuscan hunting lodge. There he faces the daunting task of bringing the faded home and garden to life - not without an entertaining series of mishaps.
The lyrical portrait on an antique Italian villa, with its olive groves and vineyards, is filled with lively lunches, impertinent peacocks and vibrant local characters. There's Ugo, the "helping hand" who comes with th villa, the aristocratic Albertina, and an endless parade of inquisitive guests.
Set in the Tuscan hills, 'A Garden In Lucca' will take you immediately to a sunny corner of Italy; sun, good food, breathtaking vistas and gardens to dream of.
