The New Year of Villa Lena
Toscane, Italie07.01.2014 #lifestyle
Six months after opening its doors in the middle of the Tuscan countryside, the majestic Villa Lena can take pride in having already added to its ghosts some memorable pieces of history. From the happy summer colony that inaugurated the resort pool under the Mediterranean heat to the worrying Halloween evening and its Indian summer, the one that is meant to be an artists’ residence – and a residence all in all – also gives pride of place to the festivities, and contains in its pink walls very pretty promises in this matter.
So for their first day of the year, Jérôme, Lena (the owners, editor’s note), and Lionel took out their best wines from the estate and concocted a NYE at the height of the place. On the program: a dinner orchestrated by the Chef Kaori Endo, a live Devendra Banhart, a “selfie” machine, fireworks, a balloon release to raise his wishes to the divine and a game of jacuzzi to see the sun rise in the distance. La dolce vita, in addition to Parisian. Buon Anno!
