San Fele

San Fele, Italy
By Haleigh In Non classé

My last post from Basilicata…San Fele is a quiet and simple place, the kind of place where strangers invite you into their farms and fields, mayors stop by to greet you, and 101 year old gentlemen send you on your way with a kiss on the cheek. Just a few minutes away from the small town and down a tree lined and traveler trotted path are some magic waterfalls.  A perfect place for a girl like me to sit for lunch and have a sandwich and wade a bit in the water. Thanks to Can’t Forget It{aly} for another beautiful trip, and L’hotel in Pietra for hosting me in Matera in what was genuinely one of the most loveliest places I have ever stayed. I think I’ll have to see my travels off till the end of the year with this entry, but don’t be surprised if something calls me away again…we know it always does.

  5. OMG Haleigh…you are sooo specially gifted! I’m soooo glad to have spent these past 4 days going around Matera & surroundings with you, all because your very special way of seeing/imagining/dreaming/facing things.
    Thank you for your words about our hotel…coming from you, for me, it is a real -and special- compliment!

    xoxo, already missing our car rides listening to music and dreaming!

    I love seeing all of your pictures. I followed your site for a whils and got all sorts of lovely ideas on where to go in Paris – if I ever got to go there.- Well, I got to go to Paris this summer for the first time. Thank you for the inspiration.
