Lugliano is on top of the hill in the photo….that little bump with the tower beside it is the main part of the village. You can just see a row of houses along the ridge.
Daniela and Mauro are the parents of my lovely friend Paolo, so they were the obvious choice for me to talk to about Lugliano, the village that sits high above Ponte a Serraglio, just a few kilometres drive up the winding road behind my apartment.
Daniela and Mauro live in a beautiful house with a great garden that keeps Daniela busy.
They have a spectacular view over the surrounding mountains from their terrace.
Mauro makes beautiful wood carvings which he sells from a pretty little shop in Ponte a Serraglio.
Mauro and Daniela met in the village, not very far from where they now live. I took a walk along the ridge where Lugliano sits and up the hill to the little cluster of houses there.
The church at the start of the village.
Keeping watch over Lugliano.
A beautiful view.
The little road winds up the hill to the main part of the village.
Come for a walk around Lugliano.
The views over La Villa, Ponte a Serraglio and beyond are wonderful.
Lugliano looks good from below as well.
Say hello Mauro and Daniela at their shop in Ponte a Serraglio in the summer months. It is beside the Bar Italia.
