If ever there was a village that can cause you to feel love at first sight it is Borghetto sul Mincio (click to view guide).
What it is I've never been able to tell but a feeling of joy and happiness washes over me every time I visit and whenever I leave I feel an aching longing to return; for days afterwards I am miserable. It isn't only me though, everyone else I've ever known who has visited has felt exactly the same.
Worse is that no words can describe this village and none of my photos can ever do it justice. There is something about the soft and gentle light of the place that makes it impossible for any photographer I know to capture...until now!
These photos were taken by a talented Dutch lady by the name of Anja and they show Borghetto sul Mincio EXACTLY as it is. So much so that I can feel the tears welling up and that aching longing to return starting all over again.

P.P.S. For your upcoming visit to Borghetto I can recommend you stay at Borghetto Vacanza nei Mulini.
A late summers evening in Borghetto. This is the time of day when Borghetto is at its most beautiful, the light is incredible and Anja has captured it perfectly.
The little road that leads to THE place to stay in Borghetto, a place called Vacanze nei Mulini. Mulini mens mills in English and Borghetto is famous for its old mills - see photo below.
Isn't this lovely? Just as lovely are the ice-creams sold in the Gelataria behind the tree.
