Well done Montefegatesi

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.
