A Good Place to Sit in Montepulciano, Italy

Bread is rising on the counter, beef simmering in the crock pot, and a Christmas pudding cooling on the stove. Yep, a Christmas pudding in August. I had a hankering.:-)

After bustling about the kitchen most of the day, I am more than ready to find a good place to sit where I can be warm, put my feet up, and rest.

Like this lovely spot at an agriturismo near Montepulciano, Italy. Add a good book and a chilled glass of limoncello and I’d be a happy girl indeed.

Or this sun-warmed wooden bench just across the valley, with a vista of Tuscan hills and clear blue skies.

Perhaps this one, clustered around a little wrought-iron table with a few girlfriends, laughing and talking as we sip chilled Sangria and enjoy stunning views of Montepulciano perched on the hill above us.

Maybe this spot would be best of all.

How I’d love to curl up on this wicker lounge bed and have a luxurious nap in the glorious Tuscan sun.

How about you? Where would be your ideal place to sit in the sun?

    I love all your places in the sun. Any place in the sun Krista, I’ve no ideal place. Last weekend was particularly nice when we sat outside all afternoon in the sun at my husband’s aunts house.

    You won me on the limoncello! I’d happily sit in all the spots and enjoy the views.

      Limoncello does make everything better, doesn’t it, Jenny? :-)

    I can nap and day dream in such a view. Beautiful!

      Me too, Dewi. :-) I’d like to run away there right now. :-)

    Robberg Beach, Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. Without a doubt!! But Montepulciano looks pretty cool too… I love that sofa with the built in sunshade!

    • Krista

      I can’t wait to visit your beautiful South Africa one day day, Jeanne. :-)

    I cannot believe you have made your Christmas pudding whilst I sit in the Italian shade, with the book and limoncello. :)

    • Krista

      I know!!! Isn’t it crazy that we’re in opposite weather, Linda? :-)
