At the end of July I wrote about the Feste Rionali of Peccioli, a historical town at about 15 minutes driving from Lajatico and our Homes in Tuscany.
This morning Massimo of Arianna & Friends, a very active local tour operator based in Peccioli, sent us a few images and a movie that represent very well the fantastic atmosphere of these events.
As I wrote on 28/07, on Saturday 10/09 it was scheduled the Rione Mexico Festa, where the speciality was "Seppie con la bietola" (cuttlefish with chard), as you can see there were full of happy people eating and drinking the free vine supplied by the local producers.
The Sagres in Peccioli will continue until the first week-end of October and would be a great opportunity to enjoy some of the local traditions.
September and October are great months to come over to visit our Italy property and spend some time in the area.
It is easier to travel and the weather is very good (if you have a heated swimming pool – like for example in our Tuscan Homes – you can swim easily until late Autumn).
By the way, thanks to Massimo of Arianna & Friends, we have here the opportunity to talk abut the Feste Rionali in Peccioli but there are many other sagras and local events, which would keep you busy exploring the area and getting to know local traditions.
Of course if you need help to organise your trip to the area Massimo and Arianna & Friends will be happy to help you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Ciao a tutti,
Luca Catalano (Mr)
