...two steps

from paradise!

Surrounded by green hills, dotted with ancient oaks and olive trees, the village of Montone appears before the eyes of the unsuspecting traveller, high up above the winding road: harmonious, austere, mysterious. Its centuries' old fortified ramparts, ancient homes, splendid churches and monasteries, harken back to its medieval past. Along the serpentine geranium-adorned shadowy byways, where cars are not allowed, only the sound of swallows' wings breaks the silence.

The village's vantage points offer breathtaking vistas, as far as the eye can see, all in an atmosphere that separates the traveller from the present. The famous medieval military commander, Braccio Fortebracci, was born here to a noble local family. It is their 14th century family residence, in the heart of Montone, that has now become La Locanda del Capitano

(i.e. The Captain's Inn).
