Category: Life's a Beach
What is your ideal vacation destination? I know it says "beach" in the title but that doesn't have to be your choice. If you could go anywhere (on Earth, in real life. No moon landings or parallel dimensions here) for a getaway, where would you go?
---------------------------------------------------------
If I could vacation anywhere in the world, I would do so in the majestic Italian Countryside. I could imagine exactly how it would be...

The sensual aroma of wild poppies blooms around me as I gaze out at the magnificent rolling hills dotted with tiny stone cottages. With the sun lightly beating on my skin, I notice the vast Mediterranean Sea spread out at the shore. I stroll back into my lodging and smile at the friendly, welcoming environment around me. Mama calls me over and places a steaming hot bowl filled to the brim with fresh homemade pasta. I could get used to living this life, I murmur to myself as I drift off into a deep, peaceful sleep...

Ok so maybe that reality is a bit fictional, but anyways, onto the build.

Here are my reference pics:

Reference 1

Reference 2

Reference 3



The shutters on the East face of the building, also showing the brickwork.



The worn cobblestone path and door.



The balcony on where you may wish to enjoy a glass of wine or two.



The roof. Yes that is a cable television receiver, you really can't escape technology these days.



The car, which happens to be a good ol' Fiat 128!



The rare Red-necked Grebe flying overhead.



Looks like I just pulled up to my dream vacation house, I guess everything is possible with LEGO!



I run up to the door, eagerly awaiting my delicious bowl of fresh pasta!



And there is Mama, holding up the overflowing bowl! I guess I will only get to live this dream vacation in LEGO!

This build is superb on so many levels! From all the great textures on the house to the little details like the "angel hair" pasta. ;) That was an epic pun right?! Anyhow, bravo! This is fantastic.

Nice Venetian blinds via the grooved 1x2 bricks, that amazing bird, and the blonde hair pasta are a trifecta of clever building

Score = a high 4. Well done! An interior would have pushed this to a 5.

Magnificent landscape in Tuscany. All details are spot on, the cypresses are fantastic. Hope Mama will add some sauce to your spaghetti: they are a bit pale! ;-D

Wonderful. Beautiful idyllic location. The house, car and landscape all look great. I hope your fig enjoys the angel hair pasta.

Nice! I think there's some hair in your pasta though (creative parts usage there!). ;)
