Sharing a Favorite Spot

On Sunday morning, our first full day in Montisi, after coffee at the bar, we wandered off with Jerry and Paul to show them one of our favorite nearby spots, the Locanda dell' Amorosa. We spent a lovely week in this fabulous property, and it was around the corner from "our" poppy field.

You enter the property through a beautiful cypress-lined driveway.

The geraniums are too good to be true, the lemon and rosemary fragrance permeates the air, and it is always picture perfect in the piazza.

We walked around the property and showed the guys the lobby, restaurant, chapel, and cantina.

The beautiful infinity edge pool overlooks the town of Sinalunga.

It was warm and gorgeous, and obviously time for a drink. I was in the mood for a glass of prosecco, and the boys ordered wine. Along with our beverages came a little tray of goodies.

What better better way to spend a lazy Sunday in Tuscany than a drink with friends in such a lovely setting! Cheers to a wonderful week!

It was great visiting with you. Now the others are going to get all jealous!

That's a great shot of Paul...he looks like he's only drinking the wine to make you happy. And I'm sure that's not true!

Looks like you all had a wonderful time!

Locanda dell' Amorosa looks like a gorgeous place.

Well, one more thing to add to the list of places to go!

Thanks for sharing!
