White Christmas in the mountains in Italy

This year we spent Christmas in Italy, in my old village in the Appennines, we arrived on 11 December and after a few days we were blessed by snow. I loved looking out of the window and seeing snowdrops, animal footprints on the ground and little birds coming to the window for a break.

 My village is Sestola, in the province of Modena, looking good with a white mantle.

Winter delights

The best thing was skiing on Christmas Day, up in Passo del Lupo. Glorious day and good snow. 

I also did a few walks around the Lago della Ninfa, next to Passo del Lupo.

A view of the Cimone Mountain, the second highest mountain in the Apennines.

Near home there are also a few lovely places where to walk and enjoy the winter 'wonderland'. A great end to 2017, and a lovely experience for the family.

  1. My family still has homes in Montecreto and Renno, Italy in the province of Modena. They live in Modena, but return to their mountain homes and I visit them every 2 years. I enjoy reading your posts. My family continues to make from hand, tortellini in brodo, crescentina (tigelle), Bolognese sauce, and more. Thank you for your pins on my group board on Pinterest "Deliciously Italian" where I saw your latest pin on your Christmas visit to your home village in Italy. I hope you will visit my blog someday too to view our similar backgrounds! Buon Anno!

  2. Ciao Roz, how wonderful, I know Montecreto and Renno, maybe one day we will meet in Italy!
