This is Villa Soligo. It’s in Soligo.
It’s an 18th century villa that had seen service as a garrison in both world wars and has been restored.
It was very nice and comfy without being over the top, and it was our home for the first week.
We made friends with Laurena who served breakfast and touched our arms a lot and we did lots of looking at sunsets and sunrises and hanging by the pool with a veritable shitload of Austrians. That kind of stuff.
I don’t think our photo really coveys how steep this pass is. It is called the San Boldo pass and there were lots of switchbacks through tiny single-lane tunnels that required enormous faith in our little Fiat Panda and in the drivers who shared the pass with us.
People do these passes for fun - especially on weekends. At the time of writing I do not yet regard them as fun, but I am keeping an open mind.
