The idea for this model came to me when I traveled to Tuscany this year with my husband and remained impressed by the beautiful landscape and its special architecture. A few weeks passed, during which I experimented with different color combinations and tried out different building constellations. By mid-June, I had a clear idea of my model. It was to be a farmhouse typical of Tuscany, where olive oil has been produced for generations and rooms have been rented for guests for several years.
This is the story of their B&B "l'Ulivo".
On the hills of Tuscany, surrounded by ancient olive trees, cypress forests and sunflower fields, stands the old farmhouse of Mario and Lucia, where olive oil is still produced according to ancient tradition. On the lower floor of the main house are the rooms of the hosts. Through the entrance door you enter a small anteroom, on the left is the bedroom and the corresponding bathroom. To the right is the kitchen, where Lucia prepares delicious cakes and a tasty breakfast for her guests every morning.
The second floor has been converted into a cozy guest area with two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The two smaller buildings are dedicated to the production and sale of olive oil. In the left house, guests can admire the old mill and the old press that Mario's grandfather used. In the right house there is the store where Lucia sells many olive oil products.
The model includes 5 minifigures, farmers Mario and Lucia, a guest couple and a young bagpacker passing through. Furthermore, there are two vehicles, a light blue Vespa and a yellow Ape to transport the olive oil. The roofs and the floor are easily removable and this makes the model playable.
I think it is a great Lego set for all ages as it perfectly captures the Tuscan flair and would make a wonderful addition to your collection.
I hope for your support and promotion to friends. Thank you!
