The woodcutters’ track

Vergemoli is a beautiful mountain village in the Garfagnana in northern Tuscany.

Our house, Casa Debbio sits alone on the side of the mountain just outside the village. We have been having some glorious sunrises lately.

As we bask in the morning sun the valley below is shrouded in mist until midday some days.

There are several woodcutters living in the village and they use a path below our house to head into the forest to cut and collect wood.

The track winds around the mountain and offers views of the village through the trees.

Further along the track the view widens to include a few other villages.

There are a few houses scattered through the forest.

Some wonderful old trees decorate the track.

There is lots of wood stored along the way.

Woodcutting might be hard work, but you couldn’t really complain about going to the office when it looks as good as this.
