A fine February day at Ponte a Serraglio

I have arrived in Ponte a Serraglio to fine winter weather.

It is cold and the sun doesn’t appear in the village until mid morning, but it did appear today, making the river sparkle.

I took a short walk up the hill opposite the apartment to take in the sun…and the view.

It is good to be back. I love the wintery landscape…and soon it will be spring.


  1. Welcome back Debra, I haven’t a date for returning as yet, but I look forward to catching up with you in the Spring. The photos are beautiful, they will keep me going until then.

    • Spring is not far away…a coffee is waiting at Il Monaco.

  2. I wish I was there….well, it will not be too long… Great photos, Deb!

    • I look forward to seeing you soon.

  3. Seeing these images makes my heart flutter … and on a day when I received an email for a cousin in the region.

    • It is all here waiting for you.

      • 🙂 …. 2016 is my target.

    • It feels a bit like spring right now, but I’m sure the rain and cold will return.

  9. Gorgeous pics, Debra. Enjoy being back home in Italy. 🙂

    • It is good to be back. I have lots to do on this trip.

  10. Lovely to see you are back at the village so now we can expect to see more late winter/ early spring posts while we are still enduring hot days and some storms here in Brisbane.

    • I am not sorry to have left the stifling heat of Brisbane behind. Give me cold weather any day.

      • I agree Debra…cooler weather in Ponte ….. A much better alternative to stifling Qld summer at this stage! Enjoy!

  11. Looks beautiful Debra 🙂

    • Ponte a Serraglio is a beautiful village. I’m pleased we found it 12 years ago.

  12. Welcome home, Debra! I enjoyed seeing the photos even moreso since I have been to your lovely apartment! Enjoy your balcony!

    • It is a bit cool out there just now, but soon it will be spring and I can plant new flowers.

  13. Looks fantastic, as usual. I wish I was there! Hope to get back…..soon.

    • I don’t think it is possible to take a bad photo of Ponte a Serraglio.

  16. Glad that you have arrived safely to Ponte a Serraglio….makes us feel a little homesick….so keep the posts coming please.
