On the way to Vergemoli

Winter has arrived in Bagni di Lucca, bringing with it cool, misty days. I think it is a beautiful time of the year, especially when I drive through scenery like this on the way to Casa Debbio in Vergemoli.

It is worth braving a bit of cold weather when this is the result.

Take a look at the New House in Vergemoli category for more on the village and our pile of rocks that became a house.

  2. It’s heavenly looking, it really is. Sort of other-worldly. Like something out of a JRR Tolkien novel, or CS Lewis. Mythic.
