Pastel Ice Cream Dreams & Coffee #cthinitaly

Pretty little colourful streets of Italy


After a week of living with ice cream on every corner and so many amazing coffee blends to sip, I returned from Italy with a camera full of pictures to share. We (Mr.S, Little L and I) stayed just outside Venice near to Treviso in a beautiful converted farmhouse. This is my first (and maybe last) post where I get all travel blogger but I am just gushing as I love, love Italy.
Coffee made the Italian way, expresso and hot milk it only served in the morning.

I love reading travel blogs, so you guy's out there ...wonderful travel bloggers are my influences for this post! Follow all my pictures on Instagram at #cthinitaly.

Love these lemon and chocolate wicker woven chairs at a ice cream parlour at a seaside resort we visited.
We spent a mixture of days visting the local cities of Treviso, Castelfranco Veneto and Oderzo, sight seeing, people watching and talking in the local culture. To days away from it all on the prosecco route, seeing the countryside, the beach, parks and old villas.

So full of colour, colour and more bright seaside colour in Caorle
With our beautiful three year old with us, we had to make sure we saw enough parks, Princess towers nd castles to keep her occupied. Plus took in an ice cream of a difference flavour on each day trip.

Ice cream and pretty pink buildings. A daily fix of ice cream and pinks!
I have to say Italy is very family friendly, you know you can always get pizza or pasta for lunch and children are welcome in every eatery. That's why we keep on going back!

Here are a few more pictures from out trip...
A took this picture in the city of Castelfranco Veneto about 40 minutes drive from Treviso. Old style bug and a great backdrop.
Loving the coffee cups at the local Casa del Gelato
The resort of Caorle was a mix of long sandy beaches and Art Deco style pastel buildings by the beach with the old town comprising on brightly painted tiny streets. I love it here.

Shutting up the shutters in the midday heat. This photo was taken at 2pm. Unlike here in the UK, Italian houses always look very private. no vases and flowers in the windows, no curtains. 
Our stay for the week, an old converted farm house. A brilliant find. We always use Home And Away and have never been disappointed.
A local Villa's rose garden about to burst. Love the soft yellow walls.

We took at trip to a local park with this amazing conservatory in it. Those large windows!
