Italy 2015 ~ Lucignanello Bandini, Tuscany

We awoke to a beautiful morning to explore our hilltop medieval village located about 20 minutes north of Montepulciano and five minutes to the small town of San Giovanni d’Asso. The infinity pool is perched on the very top of the hill and is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges, chairs, olive trees, flowers and herbs. Monica and I took photos throughout the week, so you can get the feel of this amazing place.

Here’s the link to their website for those of you that might want more information:

Our apartment was formerly a farm tenant home and located just below the pool. The spiral staircase leads up to the pool and dining terraces.

IMG_0172Here’s a peek inside our 2-bedroom, 2-level apartment, Casa Amedeo. It was fully furnished with everything you could have needed from kitchen items to books and even firewood for the fireplace. The living room is quite comfortable and we spent lots of time around the kitchen table.
