After a difficult divorce, writer Frances Mayes decides to start again and moves to an Italian villa in the Tuscan countryside. She sets to work renovating the dilapidated old house. As she spruces up her continental country home, she acquires a group of oddball characters, including Polish handymen, a pair of star-crossed lovers and her very pregnant best friend. Meanwhile, romance is in the air when a very handsome Italian estate agent begins to show a decidedly non-professional interest in her.
