I'm a part-time Simmer and I love design, decor, and gameplay with beautiful vistas. My Sims like to be outdoors. And if they can be outdoors in an idealized yet realistic Tuscan landscape, so much the better. I noticed that almost every Sim wears mirrored sunglasses - to dim the light and perhaps because they are dazzled by the loveliness of the Sims around them? Every Sim in this world is exceptionally beautiful. The pre-existing homes are attractive, and I have been able to modify the "Provence" style and even "Island" style sets to fit into the decor.
I followed the very simple instructions provided by Amazon and the download and install was completed in under 15 minutes with a high-speed (wifi) connection.
One small note, not a complaint, just a known "glitch". The area surrounding the main part of town is very hilly, so if your Sims encounter each other on the hillside, many simple social interactions, e.g., "hold hands" are not possible because of the slope.
I'm looking forward to some wood-fired oven pizza...although I hate to admit that the best pizza I've ever had was in the South of France and not in Italy.
