The popular bar in Montefegatesi closed a while ago. This situation is never good for a village. Without a place to gather for a coffee and a chat the heart of a village can die.
The residents took matters into their own hands and opened one themselves.
It is just off the square near the entrance to Montefegatesi. Look for the sign in green…Circolo with an arrow.
It is opposite the pretty church and off to the right.
There is a terrace with a spectacular view.
Just in case you are looking for a bit of real estate in the village I spotted this great looking building near the bar.
The bar is closed Monday afternoons. Unfortunately that is the time I chose to visit so I can’t show you inside.
Monti di Villa is one of the beautiful village that make up Bagni di Lucca.
Over the next few days,14th, 15th and 16th August, the people of Monti di Villa will be celebrating the “descent from the altar of Madonna” . There will be church services, fun and games, an exhibition of photography and, of course, delicious food.
The celebrations will take place at the church of Santa Maria and Donatus at the lower end of Monti di Villa. (The bottom left of the photo).
Call Emiliana for more information or to book a place…(39) 328 7029889
