We are now enjoying a wonderful summer here in Montisi and there is a great deal going on in the village. I shall keep this page updated every week so our visitors can join in our activities but if you have any questions, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or knock on my door at Via Umberto 1, 108 in the village.
Here are just some of the events coming up in the village.

Open in the afternoons and evenings, Antonio Cafarelli has incredible gelato, granita and pastries from heaven – you can always pretend they are calorie free!
