While in Tuscany, she purchases a gorgeous villa in Cortona called Villa Laura (known as 'Villa Bramasole' in the film) and rebuilds it into her new home.

The story of her life takes a major turn towards a very happy ending, so if you’re also keen to live out your own ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ experience for your wedding in Italy, Villa Laura is available to rent with its beautiful views and luxurious accommodation.
