I love winter here in Bagni di Lucca. Our mountains are very dramatic, and never more so than when there is snow on top.
We went for a drive up to Montefegatesi and on to Prato Fiorito. Lots of snow has melted recently, but there was enough left.
Prato Fiorito means field of flowers and soon it will be covered in wild flowers.
Montefegatesi is the highest of Bagni di Lucca’s villages and the view of it from the road to Prato Fiorito is not bad.
A walk through the village is always interesting. I am very impressed by the roofs with the rocks to weigh the tiles down…it gets windy up there.
I even managed to find a renovator’s delight for you. There are quite a lot of houses in the forest on the way to the base of Prato Fiorito. You can’t see them in the spring and summer when the trees have leaves, but they are all on show now.
We have sun today, but rain and possible snow is forecast for tomorrow.
Spring is just around the corner. Soon this area will look completely different…I will be back.
