First choice for the traditional "where do we want to go for an italian castagnata/chestnut roast?" this year.  It's been awhile since we've been to Umbria.

Belgium beer is our weakness -- you think we got enough?  We are making that Westvleteren last for as long as we can.

This stuff is waaaaaay easier on the stomach than the traditional, chockful-with-candied fruit, heavy "brick" xmas bread.
During a dinner party at ours last night, a guest said exactly just that when I pointed out the stash of panettone and pandoro. As if they weren't so obvious. Panettone, if you've never heard of it...

Yes, it's been an excellent year for tomatoes and gardening in general.  Unlike 2013 and 2014 where it was just too wet and cool up in the mountains, this year's hot sunny weather was much appreciated by the toms!

Don't worry, beer happy ^-^
It doesn't matter if you're a bonafide beer geek or budding brew enthusiasts like ourselves; if it's your first trip to Westvleteren, the road to the trappist brewery of Saint Sixtus Abbey is sure ...

Do as I say and not as I do: you should never look directly at the sun, eclipse or not!

Pure luck that the clouds opened up a bit at that very moment - it was predicted that we would get rain all day long.

Kids are just too pampered these days, ungrateful little vermin.

Rowena C.'s +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
Excellent display of local cheeses, but also a selection of wine, beer, and baked products. They really need to update their website so that customers can have a look at their shop!

Troppo caro, e la marca Coop non mi piace per niente.

The speculoos turned my world upside down. I only tasted the Lotus brand. Juliette's rocks!

Nice welcome and great staff at this quiet little hotel up in the mountains above Cote d'Azur. If the hotel had air-conditioning it would've made our stay even more pleasant (it really gets hot in the afternoon when the sun shines into the front of the hotel). As for the food, all I can say is that if we had more of an appetite at dinner, we would've ordered a complete menu instead of just one main dish each. The food is FABULOUS!

Came all the way from northern Italy to experience this place and Westvleteren beers and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A definite place to seek out if you're in the area.

Saw this place on the Belgium episode of Fred Chesneau's food/travel show and had to check it out. It (and the freshly made gaufres ordered from the window) did not disappoint!

A piece of cake if it isn't too hot out; took our westie and doxie all the way to the top.
