Your European depictions are amazing. They remind me of areas in France like Corde sur Ciel, or St. Girons, and my father's small village of Charameau. Keep them coming Pat.

A lovely street scene. I'm wondering what's inside that doorway. Another world I would have to guess.

I love these old times buildings with their peculiar architectural ideas and the flavour of sweet sentiments.
Actually the term villa is referred to a house or a little palace with a garden here in Italy and is extended in many cases to the urban parks as an alternative name because they were often the property of noble people or rich families previously. Originally, in Latin, the term was used for the rich people house (with at least an internal garden and pool I guess) and for country houses as well, farms too, if I look at Vergil's verses about a guy who had to sadly leave his countryside birthplace:

Et iam summa procul villarum culmina fumant
majorsque cadunt altis de montibus umbrae

And already from distance the tops of the country houses smoke
and longer and longer the shadows fall from the high mountains
