Montelopio is situated between villages, with beautiful views of surrounding Tuscan hills. The property is beautifully kept and since this was the first nice week of warmer weather after heavy rains, trees were sprouting and flowers were blooming! The first few mornings, the temps were cool and the hills covered in fog. I loved the view from our window ~ the sun burning through the fog to reveal cypress & olive trees near by and the hills surrounding! Since this was our first visit to Tuscany, we spent most of our (1 week) time sightseeing in surrounding "tourist hotspots" - Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Arrezzo, Florence, San Gimingnano, Volterra, Livorno, Calci & San Miniato. We enjoyed the drive and scenery no matter which route we took to that day's destination. A few times we took "backroads" from Montelopio, just to see where we would end up, but never got lost as, it seemed, all the winding roads eventually connect somewhere along the way. On this vacation, our days were full of walking, looking, & picture taking. Every evening, we enjoyed relaxing dinners (traditional pasta, pizza & wine) at the restaurants in Peccioli; our favorite was Via Nova where, as exhausted tourists, we were welcome and very comfortable coming in later in the evening. Our next vacation to Montelopio WILL BE more relaxing so we can enjoy the sun, pool & views Montelopio has to offer.
