Local photographer Paul Anthony Davies has taken some lovely photos of autumn in Pieve di Monti di Villa. He has kindly allowed me to share them with you.
Pieve di Monti di Villa has a restaurant, Rifugio Fiori, which is open part time.
It also has a bar, a great addition to the village.
Autumn is a gorgeous season in the mountain villages.
Don’t miss the living navity in Pieve di Monti di Villa on 4th December. It is a wonderful event.
What a lovely little place!
Pieve is one of my favourite villages.
I can see why!
Beautiful photos – I’d love to see the living Nativity.
I would love to be there for that too.
Great photos of a beautiful area.
It looks especially lovely in autumn.
I have many fond memories of Pieve. Thanks for the photos. Of course, now I’m craving some good, inexpensive food for lunch…
Yes, we need to be at Refugio Fiori.
Had a huge pizza for cheap there while watching Italy’s football team upset Spain in the Euro Cup with a bunch of excited fans. That was great!
Dont forget the living crib here soon
I did mention that it happens on 4th December.
Thank you for sharing Paul’s pictures with us. Through his lens, he surely captures the words of a poem: “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…”
He certainly takes great photos.
Thank you again, Paul, for your gorgeous photos capturing the village that has my heart and the house that is waiting for our return. We cannot wait to get back there.
Paul’s photos capture Pieve di Monti di Villa very well.
Got to love those mountain villages … but not much flat land in that area!
There are a few flat spots at the top of the village, but most of the streets wind downhill.
Thank you for all your nice comments ! This was my first “walk through” Pieve MDV , but I will certainly go again in the future. It is a lovely small village. I didn’t see many locals , but those who saw me all said ” Buongiorno” with a smile , great to see in this day and age. Unfortunately the Rifugio was closed as it was a Thursday , but I have eaten there before and had really lovely food , so well worth a stop if anybody has not been.
As Debra has said please don’t forget the “Presepe Vivente” on Sunday the 4th of December , it is well worth a visit a certainly gets everybody in the ” Christmas Spirit”. Food and drinks are available on site !
I have been several times to Pieve and have photographed many of the things you did. I look forward to the photos of the living nativity.
