If you have a long weekend, I recommend the Olle Hotel in Flatonia Texas 😀

Flatonia has ... Population 1200, is on I-10, about 1 hour east of San Antonio Texas, or 1.5 hours south east of Austin Texas. (The old downtown is about 1/3 mile south of I-10). Settled by German and Chech folks from the old world. The drive from Austin is beautiful right now, with roadsides lined by wild flowers!

It's a sleepy, relaxing place, and the Olle anchors that relaxation. The owners also have cabins on their ranch, about 4 miles away.

- about 20 miles away, is La Grange Texas, and the Texas Quilt Museum.
- in the surrounding 50 mile radius are the 5-6 main churches on the "Painted Church Tour". (There are another 15 or so, but they are farther away.)

- 35 miles away is Round Top Texas, Music Festival and Institute with a famous Music Hall, as well as the Annual Antiques Fair. These are high demand dates, so plan accordingly.
