This is the first of more books to follow. Over the years that I have resided in Italy, I have sought out some of the most beautiful and historic hotels and inns in the country. I knew their hospitality and their history would delight me, but I also knew that their interiors, their gardens, and most importantly their views would inspire both my pen and my brush. I was never disappointed. I invite you to enjoy these unique hotels through my words and my paintings. It is my hope that these pages will tempt you into making these hotels part of your travel plans when next you travel to Italy. Contact information for each of the hotels is provided. This is a companion book to "Italian Wanderlust."
Ginda has been a painter and a writer for three decades - and a dreamer forever... She is married, has three daughters and five grandchildren. Ginda lived in Egypt from 1993 to 1999, during which time she painted over 100 paintings of Egypt and the Egyptian people. Many of these were reproduced in her first book, "Morning of Light - an Egyptian Journal." Ginda currently lives in Italy where she continues to write and to paint. Look for her book "Italian Wanderlust" which celebrates not only the hotels of "Rooms with a View," but also the landscapes, the food, the traditions and the festivals of Italy. Order a copy as a companion to this book.
