2006 Trip - Italy - Tuscany - La Crociona Agriturismo

Wednesday 5-24-06

We awoke to a cloudy sky and took our time getting ready - after all, we had no set plans, and the countryside where we were staying is just gorgeous. But, I am getting a little bit ahead of myself - first, let me tell you where we stayed, La Crociona Agriturismo, just outside Montalcino.

Several people on the Slow Travel website had stayed there and really spoke highly of it, so I made reservations for a week there. Here is a review from Slow Travel.

Looking at the aerial photo on their website, our cozy little "house" is up at the top of the photo, set away from the other buildings. This gave us a lot of really peaceful time in a gorgeous setting.

We stayed in the bottom portion of the building, and a really nice couple from Atlanta stayed above us. We met them later in our stay and really hit it off with them. They were lots of fun!


Here are some photos of the living room area and the little kitchen. I didn't photograph the bedroom or bathroom, but they were roomy and very clean.

We sat outside every evening having wine and munchies.

And Bill even made friends with the resident kitty. And this kitty looked so much like our dearly departed Morris (who also really loved Bill), it was a special treat to have a furry friend there.

Even our little car had a carport. A very comfy place to stay!

What wonderful trip reports you are giving us. Oh I want to be right there Nancy. The accommodations and all the surroundings look great. Love the kitty shots too.

What a lovely place, it looks idyllic.

This looks like a fabulous place to stay! I love Montalcino!
