When you have a meeting with the Vegetarian Butcher, it should be in a fitting place. This sure was!

It is located between olive trees on top of a hill, where GPS does not work. I found out the hard way (rentalcar people, please skip this part!), driving up an unpaved horse-track, fearing Iā€™d get stuck, without cell phone reception in the middle of nowhere! Luckily the car ploughed through and it was worth it, what a view!

Montali is an award winning vegetarian hotel. It serves dinner every night and all can be made vegan. They have written a cookbook, everything is run by the nicest Italian family. The food is simple, but so delicious! We ate here more than once and it was different daily!

If you are in Umbria, Italy, make sure you plan a visit to Montali!
